Long gone are the days when alternative wedding dresses were snubbed by industry. In todays society many brides are choosing to embrace the more unique look for their special day. Choosing your dream wedding dress is all about what you want – whether that be a classic white wedding dress or a colourful and modern two piece. So we took on the task of finding 5 unique alternative wedding dresses (well actually 3 dresses…) to help give you a little inspiration. We won’t lie it was also really fun to look at so much prettiness all afternoon!

This dress is the stuff fairytale dreams are made of! The intricate embroidery detailing on both front and back of the dress will seriously wow your wedding guests. The mix of soft and bold colours create such a beautiful mix of fairytale and modern wedding. Chotronette create some of the most amazing non-traditional wedding dresses we have ever seen. Plus they are SO affordable it really is quite unbelievable. The designers Silvia and Laura, based in Romania make these stunning dresses in their studio and ship them worldwide.

Whoever said black shouldn’t be worn at a wedding was defintely wrong! We are in LOVE with this chic and romantic black wedding dress from Enzoani. The Joselina-A is likely to be top of the list when it comes to alternative wedding dresses. Black is the least traditional colour for a wedding gown, however, we think it looks simply stunning.

Here at Ivy Ellen we have been lovers of Jenny Packham wedding dresses for a long time. Her latest collection is no exception to that love – each dress is beautifully detailed and fit for the most chic of brides. Our personal favourite being the Jolene wedding dress. Although the dress is adorned in stunning details of gold stars, the colours themselves are quite classic. This makes the dress perfect for a bride wanting something a little quirky but not OTT different from the norm.

Next we have the bridal two-piece. Growing in popularity many brides are choosing this playful yet modern look. Combine any colour skirt with an ivory or white top and you have one spectacular alternative bridal look. We love the soft etheralness of this blue skirt and lace top from Chantel Lauren.

Following in the fabulous footsteps of Solange Knowles – we recommend a jumpsuit for a chic and modern alternative bridal look. This sexy and sleek jumpsuit from Savannah Miller would suit a city perfectly. The ivory colour still screams bridal but the low cut sweetheart neckline and modern jumpsuit style add a refreshing modern twist.
