1. Chopped Wedding Gowns
Many brides-to-be imagine themselves wearing a long gown while walking down the aisle, but maybe something a little different will be just right for you. If you enjoy wearing short dresses and you have beautiful legs, and showing them off will accent your overall appearance, chopped gowns are the right thing for you. You can look like a princess even in a short gown. This trend is, in fact, getting more and more popular.
2. Red Colored Wedding Gowns
Believe it or not but wearing a red bridal gown is not a recent trend. Red wedding gowns have a long history and tradition. In eastern cultures red bridal gowns symbolize good luck and auspiciousness. The traditional bridal attire in countries such as India, Vietnam and China is supposed to be in red. If you believe in the magical power of this color, or you simply like it, we strongly recommend that you choose an astonishing red bridal gown.
3. Colorful Wedding Gowns
Wedding gowns do not necessarily have to be white. Not even in western cultures. In fact, for a very long time, brides from wealthy families wore expensive fabrics in every color imaginable. Not until the beginning of the XV century did we have the first documented wedding with the bride wearing white. The color and style of the wedding attire largely depend on religion and culture, but the fact that we live in a globalized world, resulted in different cultures colliding, which created more opportunities for unconventional brides. So, why can’t you wear a nice bridal gown in your favorite color?
4. Gothic and Girly
Some black details can really accent a typical white wedding gown. Choosing a gown with extravagant black and grey details will not make you look like the princess of darkness on your wedding day. On the contrary, it will give you the chance to express your avant-garde personality in a conventional ceremony and still look like a bride.
5. You May Not Eat the Bride – Edible Wedding Gowns
Is this too extreme even for you? Wearing a dress made of cake and candy may not be entirely plausible under the circumstances, but adding some edible details to a regular wedding gown could be interesting.
