21 Wedding Outfit Ideas For The Less Conventional Bride

less conventional wedding dresses

Whilst the ebbs and flows of wedding style happen at a much more gentle pace than everyday trends, there are still some noteworthy developments happening in the world of wedding attire that will interest you if you’re getting married in 2022 or beyond.

If the idea of getting hitched in a strapless, frothy white creation makes you head for the hills rather than the aisle, finally – you may just be in luck, with less traditional wedding outfits slowly gaining traction as an acceptable option for brides.

Bridal designers, haute couturiers and celebrities alike are thankfully dousing us in inspiration for alternative ways to dress for what is certainly one of the most important – and personal, days of our life. Who can forget Solange Knowles’ dramatic floor length caped column dress, or Olivia Palermo’s dressed-down two-piece?

We’ve rounded up 21 stunning wedding-ready examples, ranging from runway to red carpet and more in between to take your non-conventional wedding style to the next level.
