Bridal Alternatives

Being a dress designer and all, I have been known to spend a lot of time talking about traditional wedding dresses. You know the one, yards of lace and tulle, pearl buttons and fairy tale sparkle. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE that dress. But, it being 2015 and all, there are SO many more options out there, so why limit yourself?

The most amazing part of my job as a designer is that I'm not limited in what I do. Whether you're looking for traditional or out of the box, your wedding attire should reflect your best self!

And remember, choosing a custom design means that you can do whatever suits you best. There are no rules to stick to or any limitations at all, just what makes you feel amazing for your big day!

I've rounded up a few of my favorite alternative options from around the internet. Enjoy!

Carol Hannah's Iolite - This is a beaded wedding kaftan. You heard right, a wedding kaftan. I never thought those two things go together, but this gown is amazing. It is so effortless and gorgeous, I almost wish I had more occasions to wear something like it! Carol Hannah is one of my favorite bridal designers, her work never disappoints!

Theia Tuxedo Style Silk Jumpsuit - Bridal Suits are finally coming into their own and it is a breath of fresh air. There are many more options out there now for bride looking to go with a suit. And even if a suit isn't your thing for the wedding day, it could be a cool option for any pre-wedding festivities!

Temperley Bridal Nepheli Jumpsuit - This jumpsuit is a happy medium between dress and suit, feminine, sleek and striking.

Houghton Aligote Top & Macabeau Skirt- Two piece bridal ensembles are a great way to get more mileage out of your look. You have more options to customize your look, and after the big day you can integrate the pieces into your every day wardrobe.
