Kick the traditional notion of bridal fashion to the curb. We are head over heels about glamour girl and fashion editor Olivia Palermo’s three-piece Carolina Herrara bridal-wear look, consisting of an ivory cashmere sweater, ivory shorts and a gorgeous tulle and lace ivory sheer wrap-around skirt, which she paired with blue satin Manolo Blahnik Hangisi pumps.
More and more brides are choosing to ditch the traditional wedding gown for high fashion inspired looks that are as unique and representative of the bride’s individuality as her distinct style is. We absolutely love the non-traditional dress trend and are especially fans of up and coming designers such as Della Giovanna, Lakum, Kelly Faetanini and Houghton who are creating modern fashion for today’s contemporary brides who are looking for something special, beautiful and with a “wow” factor.
Other avant-garde celebrity brides include Jessica Biel who wore a pink Giambatista Valli gown on her big day, Kiera Knightley who wore a knee length blush pink tulle dress with a tweed jacket both by Chanel, and Sofia Coppola who stunned in a lilac custom knee length Azzedine Alaia chiffon frock.
So when it comes to bridal wear shopping, don’t be afraid to express yourself and think outside the box, it’s your day and it should represent everything that makes you special, so forget the cookie-cutter gowns and go bold.
