share your style with unique wedding gown options
If you define yourself as anything but traditional, especially when it comes to the way that you dress, then you should show it off. As a bride, it is your opportunity to walk down the aisle in something that reflects your individualism and sense of style. But, even though modern generations have become more accepting of miniskirts, leather and thigh-high boots, it certainly doesn’t mean that your parents and the family of your husband-to-be are. So, before you break out of the traditional consider some of the following when it comes to your style:
- Will your officiate find your outfit unacceptable? It is a good idea to make sure that he/she does not have restrictions on what the bride and groom can wear. Some religious and ethnic based ceremonies prefer that you have certain parts of your body covered or don’t wear a certain color. Remember that your officiate can refuse to start your ceremony, so it is a good idea to ask ahead of time what is and is not permissible.
- Keep in mind when determining what you are going to wear the location, formality and time that your wedding is going to take place. It would be entirely out of place to wear the miniskirt and tube top outfit to your evening candlelit ceremony of 200 guests, or to wear a long and thick ball gown if you have to walk uphill to your mountainside ceremony.
- If you have ensured that your chosen attire is fitting to your wedding, then you should also give a polite warning to your friends and family of what you want to wear down the aisle. This will help to ensure that when you first march down the aisle people are not put off or feel uneasy. If they know ahead of time that you are going to be wearing something untraditional it can help to ensure that their eyes are not focused on your attire and focused on you – the bride!
If you are sure that you want to show off a little bit more of your style than a traditional white wedding gown, but are not sure that you want to wear something that awkward down the aisle, then you can take a look at some other options.
More and more bridal designers are now creating wedding gowns in a number of different colors. Whether your favorite color is bold and bright, dark or sparkling, you can show off your mood or wedding color theme through your gown. Or, another idea that brides are incorporating into their wedding is wearing a traditional white dress for their ceremony and then wearing a colorful dress for their reception. You can also choose from a two-in-one gown that is a full length wedding gown and has an interchangeable skirt to make it a little more fun and flirty for the reception.
While these suggestions may seem far from your miniskirt or thigh-high boot dream wedding outfit, they will give you the option to show off your style, while still remaining tasteful for your guests…like your future mother-in-law!
