Wedding Dresses: Original Ideas for Unconventional Brides

The wedding season is slowly beggining. Not every bride-to-be wants to walk down the aisle in a plain white gown. For those who think outside of the box, this article may become very useful.

A great way to achieve a truly original look is to find a dress that has a classic cut and a decor that fits your personality, wedding venue or even your chosen color scheme. If you are a woman who likes to make a statement, this is what you should choose. Especially if simplicity bores you.

2. Color Extravaganza

If a classic bride in white or ivory is not your thing, try a pastel galore. Strong, vibrant colors aren’t recommended, yet every girl is different. Soft shades are just more in demand. At a bridal salon, it’s great to ask about a color option. Not every designer is able to make a custom change like this, but it doesn’t hurt to keep looking. Try pastel shades of yellow, blush (looks great on ebony skin tones by the way), latte, apricot, pink, lavender or aqua.

3. Short & Chic

It’s common to think that short dresses are only good for a courthouse wedding. Nothing more ridiculous. It’s becoming a new trend to wear something above the knee. There is a lot of girls out there that just don’t feel comfortable in long, heavy gowns. You can’t blame them for that. For a light and feathery feel choose something that makes you feel happy. At the end of the day, this is the only thing that matters.

    The first set almost look like barbie dolls and I still am amazed at the similarity between the two.
