Not Your Basic Bride: Ideas for Unconventional Wedding Dresses

Not Your Basic Bride: Ideas for Unconventional Wedding Dresses

Ah, the dream of being in a white wedding gown, marrying your prince charming. We’re sure that a lot of us ladies have dreamt of that very scene at one point of our lives (or constantly - don’t worry, no judgment here). As we go on about our non-fairytale lives, we can eventually find our prince charming, the one we would love to spend the rest of our lives with. Dreams do come true! 

But now, maybe some things are different. Maybe you realize that your dream white wedding gown is not the choice for you anymore. It just… doesn’t scream “you”. The current you who’s tying the knot. And you want your wedding to be an occasion where you can be unapologetically yourself. The white gown? A true classic, nothing wrong with it. But you want something edgier, something that isn’t a common choice, something daring, something that’s very “you”. 

We’re the experts of occasion wear for a reason: we really got something for everyone, no matter what kind of style you are seeking. Keep scrolling to discover the styles from our most recent Absolute Romance collection that’s especially created for the non-basic bride. 

Little Black (Wedding) Dress

Maybe you’re a firm believer that an LBD is what to wear on special occasions, including your nuptials. We say go for it. Your wedding is yours to celebrate, and it’s a moment you’ll remember forever. The set of Black Kuromi Top and Black Kuromi Skirt is a more edgy look, with a crop top silhouette paired with a mermaid-cut skirt combination that’s as elegant as it is unique. For something more understated with a hint of sultriness, go with the Celine Dress in Black. Couple it up with Whitney Heels in Black. Tip: Even if you can’t wear them in your Holy Matrimony or your reception, they can work amazingly as an after-party dress. 

Barbie Girl Pink

Did you know that Audrey Hepburn wore a pink Givenchy minidress for her wedding? Well, if you’re also eyeing the sweet shade of pink to wear on your wedding day, then we’ve got the picks for you. For a more Barbie-centric approach, the Dorothy Set in Magenta is made from lush satin in a vibrant magenta shade that the famous doll herself would definitely go for. For the lovers of pastel shades, we recommend the romantic and dreamy Cheryl Dress in Pink or Roselyn Dress in Pink. Complete your look with Scarlett Heels in Champagne

Summer Fresh

Want something summery for a laidback destination wedding? A refreshing choice arrives in the Gaia Dress in Orange. Its vibrant citrus shade makes your special day brighter than ever, and its dainty embroidered details give the right amount of sweetness that you would want in a wedding attire. Pair it with Daisy Earrings and Amalfi Heels in White for a lovely summer wedding look. 

Gone Gold 

Gold is a modern and unique color option if you’re looking for a style that’s glamorous and glistening. It’s the one you go for if you want to be the center of attention. This Dios Dress in Champagne has a subdued golden shade that translates elegantly in pictures, and its corset-like details are very on-trend. Or, opt for the Ema Dress in Nude for a look that's as golden as the golden hour. Complete the look with Amalfi Heels in Gold and Margot Earrings

Blooming Florals

Who doesn’t love florals? If you have a big love for them, then these floral dresses can be your wedding dress options for the big day. We’ve got the strapless and dreamy Forget Me Not Dress (that also doubles as something blue, by the way) and the Seraphine Dress in Pink for a relaxed garden party wedding kind of look. For a subtle touch of flowers in your accessories, opt with the Daphne Green Necklace with dainty floral accents. 

Candy-colored Combo

Seeking a sweet style for the big day? Go with this pairing of Yellow Nara Top with an adorable bow accent with the Beige Nara Skirt that combines dreamy tulle with shiny champagne satin. As you can see, they’re made for each other. Add some glam with Chelsea Multishape Necklace in Gold

Couple Set

A classic that isn’t basic. A pairing of a lacy white top references back to the timeless white wedding dress, but a big skirt in a contrasting color gives the right amount of extra drama you would want on a very special occasion. Lo and behold, Sacha Top White paired with Nadine Skirt Black. A couple that’s as perfect for each other as you and your special guy. Accessorize the look with Audrey Stud Earrings and Paris Heels White

Bridal Pants

This one’s for all the girlbosses out there. Keep it modern with a pair of pants paired with a fancy top, like this combo of Lee Pants in White and Terra Top in Black. Add a pair of statement earrings to complete your look, something like these Lyra Blue Hoop Earrings. This look is perfect for city weddings where the bright lights and alluring architecture of the metropolis become the backdrop of your nuptials.
