Non-Traditional Wedding Dresses

When you think about wedding dress shopping, what comes to mind? Perhaps you think of Kleinfeld’s and Say Yes To the Dress, billowing veils, and lengthy white trains. The first documented instance of a white wedding gown is that of Philippa of England, wearing a tunic with a cloak in white silk. Mary, Queen of Scots, followed suite, with a white wedding gown in 1559 for her first marriage and soon after, the white dress was locked in to wedding culture.

But why should we, as brides of 2017, follow the trends set for us by the princesses of yester-yester-year? For the bride wanting to trail off of the beaten path, here are non-traditional wedding dresses for your consideration and inspiration.

A final note on non-traditional wedding gowns: There are no rules on what you wear on your big day. Get expressive with your dress and wear something that doesn’t compromise your style! Dresses, like brides, come in all shapes, sizes and colors. Find one that makes you feel like you.

How to Customize Your Wedding!

Nowadays weddings are just getting bigger and more elaborate. Everyone wants to outdo the other, but when you think about it, they all kind of run together. When planning your wedding, remember to make it special and unique to you and your significant other. This is really important to consider because remember why you are getting married, and it’s not for one big party. Here are some ways to make your wedding your own and customize it!

    1. Koozies: These are a super big hit with the weddings nowadays. Most bars are serving cold drinks, so pop one of these on and everyone is reppin’ your names!

    1. Napkins: Napkins are a cute way to display your names, dates, etc. They are easy to make and can be done in bulk.
    2. Custom Wedding Monogram: These are so incredible. They can be shown anywhere and everywhere you can imagine. On the the napkins would be adorable, but even better would be on a custom pillow in your lounge area!

    1. Decorations: For your decorations, while framed photos are always a hit, mix it up with custom playing cards! This would be another cute place to add your monogram, but you can also have your engagement pictures printed on the playing cards as well!
    2. Favors: I have seen some very cute favors over the years. Incorporate your new name in a cute riddle tied to a favor, get some M&Ms with your new last name on them, or make it a champagne bottle with a new wrapping saying thank you from the both of you. Oh yeah, and those playing cards from the Decorations Idea would be great “thank yous” too!

  1. Food: This one is by far my favorite and the cutest, I think, but I’m a little biased to grandma’s home-style cooking. Have a catering company willing to make some dishes that are not of their norm? Have grandma or Aunt Jenny to write up the recipe you’ve grown up eating and incorporate it into dinner.   This will give your wedding guests an idea of how the both of you grew up and what you enjoy.
