Anyone can go out and find a white or ivory wedding dress. I want you to take a step outside tradition and check out some of these options. No matter what type of wedding you have, you can find a dress to suit your personal style while still wearing a luxurious dress. Don’t be afraid of color!! I’m waiting for the bride who is daring enough to show up in a swanky sequin dress, colorful gown, and better yet, dress the bridesmaids in white.
Loving the look of the black dress with beading on the bodice and paring it with a tailored sequin dress for the bridal party. Or the purple, orange, and gold print dress for you brides and the ombre aubergine chiffon dress for the bridal party. Two of my other favorites are the pewter sequin beaded long sleeve dress and multi-metallic white dress, both partnered with a white tea length dress for the bridesmaids. Think how stunning you’ll look if you have a fair skin tone and wear a striking colorful wedding dress?! One of the other benefits of working with a bridal dress that isn’t white, you can have a white bouquet and it will really stand out in photos.
One thing to keep in mind when purchasing a non-typical wedding dress, evening gowns can be a lot cheaper. A “wedding gown can range anywhere from $99-$20,000+. You can easily find a luxurious evening gown for reasonable prices in the $99-300+ range. Let’s face it – everyone wants to save money on their wedding somewhere. Depending on where you shop for an evening gown, it’s probably more likely that you will be able to try on your actual size vs. working your way into or clamping up the excess fabric on the “one-size” only dress found in many of the bridal shops.
