The one appealing thing about non-traditional wedding dresses is that there is literally something for every bride who wants to wear something truly unique on her special day. For this summer season, black lace, turquoise, and yellow stand out, while white lace and sequins will look fabulous on any bride-to-be. Here are five knockout non-traditional wedding dresses that this year’s brides will be scrambling for:
Simulated black lace can be very fashionable on a non-traditional wedding dress that gives the illusion it is sleeveless. This David Meister dress can be worn to any type of wedding, whether it takes place on a cruise ship, garden, or church. Made of rayon with a back zipper closure, a nude yoke bearing a pretty black lace design in the fabric, and ruched sides, this dress is very classic and can easily be categorized as “extra special little black dress.” Available from Bloomingdale’s for $498.
Turquoise is always a pretty color for a non-traditional wedding dress. Created by La Femme Boutique, this strapless full-length dress has a tie-back, ruched bodice, and a sweetheart neckline. This georgette and satin dress will turn heads not only at the wedding, but also on the dance floor during the reception. Pearls are the ideal jewelry here, and for shoes, go with silver heels. Available from Neiman Marcus for $370.
Bright yellow is a cheerful color, and for the bride who plans on having a garden wedding this summer, this dress is perfect for the occasion. Made of matte jersey, this sunny dress has a one-shoulder strap, crossover straps in back, and silver sequins sewn in a pretty geometric design at the waist and straps. For a nice contrast, wear bright blue shoes and sapphire jewelry. Available from Cache for $99.
For the bride-to-be who loves lots of lace but wants something non-traditional, this allover lace strapless dress will be sure to please. Best of all, this pretty dress has lots of sequins sewn in diagonal shapes throughout it, not too sparkly, as the sequins appear beneath the lacy frame. Wear a diamond earring-and-necklace set with this dress on your wedding day. Available from Bebe for $119.99.
Finally, this dramatic crinkled chiffon black dress by Carolina Herrera is both feminine and elegant enough for any bride to wear on her wedding day. A single ruffle flows from the bodice front all the way to the floor, while the delicate cap sleeves and ruching add just a touch more decoration in this fabulous wedding dress. Wear gold or silver shoes with this dress, and for jewelry, crystals or diamonds. Available from Bergdorf Goodman for $2,690.
