If you're a young and experimental bride who's not quite in love with the long traditional white meringue gown, you'll adore these 5 unconventional wedding outfits that will suit your personality and unique sense of style.
Toss the idea of putting on that over-the-top, hard-to-walk-in wedding gown for a look that is stylish and understated, just like you.
You will wear whatever you want for your big day, because you can.
1. T-Shirt Dress
Shu Qi's "eco-friendly" dress features a T-shirt body and three layers of ruffled lace and tulle underneath, costing only HK$3,990 from H&M's "Conscious Exclusive" collection.
Despite its simplicity, the exquisite details of lace and tulle give this dress a boho, romantic and street-style look.
2. Power Playsuit
Look and feel like a true #girlboss at the altar!
After all, both parties should wear the pants in the marriage, right?
3. Modern draped dress
The clean silhouette emphasises a svelte figure, and does not distract from the beauty of the bride.
Incredibly runway chic, this dress is perfect for low-key elegant wedding parties.
4. Floor-length cape dress
Solange Knowles' clean yet striking Kenzo column dress comes with a floor length cape that gives her wedding a powerfully surreal look.
We love how she accessorised this neat dress - see those thick gold cuffs peeking out from under her cape?
5. Bridal Romper
Sexy and classy at the same time.
This wedding romper is absolutely perfect and fun-looking for an elopement or engagement photoshoot session!
