The Statement Dress: Wearing A NonTraditional Wedding Dress
I spy a new wedding trend for 2014! The nontraditional wedding dress! Who says brides have to wear white anyway? The tradition of white dresses started in the early 1800's when Queen Victoria wore a white gown to her wedding. Since the Queen was the epitome of a trendsetter at that time white became the standard for weddings at that time and just well, stuck. Today the white dress means so much more. Some consider it a sign of purity while others see it as a presentation of the brides joy on her wedding day.
But why do you want to look like every other bride on your wedding day? Why not show more of your personality and wear a nontraditional dress? More and more we have began to see brides inserting more of their own personal style into not only their wedding but their dresses as well. So with that being said we have come up with a few tips on how you can integrate a nontraditional dress into your special day!
If your going to do something outside of the box try to stay consistent with one style. Whether your doing accents of a certain color or your venue has floral details try to match these elements to the look and feel of your dress.
2. Match It
The groom is apart of the wedding too! Try matching with him to give your wedding a little spunk!
You can wear anything to your wedding. Really you can, but if you don't have confidence no one will see your real beauty. If you love your self and your dress people will see that no matter what you have on!
So remember the most important part to pulling off any non traditional element is really to have self confidence. It's about mixing elements that are special to you and the groom and sharing those things with the people you love the most! In our book confidence is always a brides best accessory!
