When getting married one of the biggest decisions to make is what to wear. If you don´t fancy the classic wedding gown, no one’s forcing you to say yes to the dress. We have lined up five great alternatives, that for sure will make you stand out of the crowd.
1. The Jumpsuit
You don’t feel comfortable in dresses? No worries, jumpsuits are a chic and polished alternative to a gown. They will give you the ability to dance the night away, and you are sure to stop the dancefloor in this classic piece from TOME available at NET-A-PORTER. If you prefer something less minimal, make the jumpsuit your own by adding statement heels and chunky jewelry.
2. The shirt dress
If you are repelled by the classic wedding gown, but still not ready to commit to pants, the shirt dress is a great alternative. This reworking of the staple white shirt, this is a feminine and easy going alternative. Works especially well with minimal makeup at a summer wedding, which gives the look the ultimate cool-girl vibe. Our favourite is this stunning bridal piece by the British design Ingrid.
3. The two-piece suit
Opt for a two-piece suit for an understated and classic look. Keep it feminine by going for a reworked version with flared pants and a sharp jacket. Go bold by adding sequined accessories and a smokey eye. We recommend getting a suit tailor made to achieve the perfect fit and look.
Who says you cannot wear denim on your big day? Brooklyn-based stylist Claudia Cifu choose to pair her favorite vintage levis jeans with a long embroidered chiffon top for her laid-back City Hall wedding. If you feel that wearing jeans is a little intimidating, go for a Denim Jacket to wear after the ceremony. The trick to making denim wedding-appropriate is pairing it with something feminine and white.
5.The slip dress
Keep it simple and sweet in a silk slip dress. This is the
option for the fashion-forward bride, which values trends over traditions . Layer it above a white t-shirt, and be the most modern bride this season.
