It’s a day that most women dream and plan of from when they were a little girl – having a beautiful wedding! Sure, the ideas you have will morph as get older to fit your personality, but the reality is most people cannot afford THAT wedding. They either go into debt planning and executing this dream or just don’t have something they truly love. Wedding planning aside, I want to share with you a few unconventional and alternative bridal styles perfect for warm weather, destination weddings or a courthouse gig if you don’t have a huge budget or just looking for a less expensive and everyday option — you know, so you can wear it more than once!
You don’t have to be limited to an actual wedding gown on your special day if it’s not in your budget. Carrie (Bradshaw) actually wanted to wear a vintage white suit when she initially married Big before the wedding debacle.
If a gown isn’t in your budget (or an elaborate wedding), IT’S OKAY! Have the dream later and find a beautiful simple gown at a local store. This long dress is actually a from Finders Keepers and is $170. Equally, during homecoming or prom seasons, even Christmas or Valentine’s Day, you can find unembellished, simple and mature gowns.
Bohemian bridal looks have always in trendy in bridal and everyday styles, but it is not all about fringe details and flower crowns. On your big day your laid-back style still calls for a chic bridal gown with soft lines and romantic details! Boho styled dresses can be found in many local boutiques and are really affordable, PLUS you can wear them on vacation or other events.
A white pant or jumpsuit is so versatile – you can wear it on your big day, garden party, or as a wedding guest. If you’re choosing this option as the bride, it’s perfect for the quaint ceremony in the middle of the park or head to the courthouse like Carrie and Big.
Don’t forget your lovely bouquet and simple accessories with any of these looks.
