Non-Traditional Wedding Dresses

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.

About Naomi Wilson

A hopeless romantic and Pinterest wedding fanatic at heart, I'm a sucker for all things love, proposals and wedding planning. Being a student of communications and journalism at Springfield College has introduced me to the wonderful world of video producing and blogging and after sitting in front of a screen watching The Yes Girls' proposal videos for hours on end, I knew I had to find an in! When I’m not obsessing over the latest wedding trends, I spend my time watching Audrey Hepburn, drinking iced caramel macchiatos, learning French, and planning my next Instagram post.
