The tastes of brides today are more varied than they ever were before. Fifty years ago, there wasn’t much diversity when it came to wedding gowns. They were predominantly long and traditional, often with a simple veil as the only real element of flair.
But today, things are different. Of course, there are still traditional wedding gowns and plenty of women who are more than happy to get married in one. However, there are now options available for women who are looking for something a little bit outside the norm.
When brides-to-be go out in search of a wedding gown, they are looking for, as they say, the “perfect dress.” But what is perfect to one woman may turn off another one completely. Different women have different tastes. What looks good on one woman may not be suitable for another.
As you search for your wedding gown, keep in mind that the right one is, in fact, out there for you somewhere. If you yearn to be on the cutting edge of fashion, have no fear. There are incredibly original gowns out there just waiting to be discovered.
Chic and Fashionable
Make an impression as you walk down the aisle in a dress that looks like it came straight off of a high-fashion runway. For something that is ultra-modern and contemporary, try out a dress that is cut short, to just above the knees.
One option for this type of dress features a sweetheart neckline atop the strapless silk satin organza dress. This gown also has Alencon lace appliqués throughout for an extra sense of enticement.
The most dynamic feature of this stunning wedding dress is the hand-made silk satin floral corsage in the back. A simple sash wraps around the front and then explodes into a large flower arrangement and bow on the other side. This is a wedding gown that is sure to be unforgettable.
Other eccentric brides may be interested in a dress that looks like it came straight out of a fairytale storybook. They desire a gown that makes them look like a gorgeous princess from the days of yore.
There is an incredible style out there that meets and exceeds all these wishes. It is strapless, so it looks great with your favorite necklace. English netting is hand-draped on this gown and gives it an incredible slimming affect and a one-of-a-kind silhouette.
Venice lace delights the bodice and adds an exceptional visual element to the hem of the skirt. This unbelievable dress comes in ivory and will have you looking and feeling like royalty.
Sleek and Modern
Some brides don’t necessarily want to break from tradition entirely. They like the idea of a classic dress, but maybe are in search of something with a little bit of modern flair.
This fashionable dress has all the makings of a traditional wedding gown, but with a few modern features. The straps create a V across the bust and continue down around the waist. At the top of one shoulder sits an oversized hand-made silk flower.
From the waist, this gown sweeps down and creates the incredible effect of having firm lines, yet still flows effortlessly around the body. This dress would look fantastic during any time period, whether 50 years in the past or 100 years in the future.
Complex and Delectable
For some brides, less is more. However, there is also something to be said for an incredibly textured wedding gown that bedazzles the eyes that look upon it.
Venice lace is a gorgeous addition to any dress, and this style has it in spades. The lace covers nearly every part of this strapless gown. It even stretches out onto the arms, from the shoulders down to the elbows.
The fitted bodice curves around the hips and then spills out to the floor at the knees. This affect will highlight all of your best curves and creates a striking visual affect. Another highlight is the large silk satin bow and streamers that extend from the back. Once people catch a glance of this dress they won’t be able to take their eyes off it.
Exotic and Fun
Dresses can be different without pushing the limits too far. However, there are brides out there who will settle for nothing short of an avant-garde masterpiece.
One exceptional style is a strapless satin organza dress that comes to just above the knees. But the most striking feature of this dress is the net flowers that are scattered across every part of it. It is truly a work of art.
Don’t be content with settling on a wedding gown that isn’t exactly what you are looking for. Also, you shouldn’t be afraid of mixing things up a bit. This is one of the most important days of your life, and it should be everything you’ve always dreamed it could be. Don’t be shy. Pick out a dress that shows off your true personality.
