Came across this article and loved some of the points that it made.
Here’s 3 great tips of advice provided:
1) Wear a dress that fits your theme. Getting married at the beach? Opt for a fancy sun dress. Getting married on New Year’s? Definitely go for a dress with lots of gold or silver sparkle.
2) Earn bonus points if you can find a dress that is so non-wedding that you can re-wear it to other events! Get the most you can out of the money you’re spending…weddings are NOT cheap.
3) Above all, wear something you love. This is your day and you should feel like a princess.
They continue to list out 16 great choices in non traditional wedding dresses. Here are some of our favorites:
Blushing In Pink Tulle Dress - $1,180 (Left)
Part ballerina, part bride… total pretty. Handmade and comes in several other colors.
Papillio Wedding Dress - $279 (Right)
Perfect for a garden wedding, or for any event where you want to look and feel like Tinkerbell.
High Low Hem - $795
The mixture of lace and satin, the asymmetrical hem… we can’t decide what we love most about this dress.
iPad Wedding Dress - $70,000 (estimated)
Design your own wedding dress digitally, and get 100 iPads in the process! This dress doubles as great guest favors! Yes, this one is a joke. But, if you know anyone who has actually done something so geeky, please send them our way.

Take it from your everyday to your wedding day. Transform a classic bridal look with the accessories that speaks your personality. After all, today’s bride is as fashion forward, trendsetting and stylish as ever; your jewelry should be too.
Some hot trends we are seeing this season are brooches, cuffs, statement earrings and headbands!
Brooches are versatile and can be use as keepsake or be worn again after your wedding day. You can use the brooch to singe a sash, incorporate it in your hairstyle or simply be dazzled your dress.
Make a statement with just one piece. A cuff bracelet is bold enough to stand on its own. Choose either one very wide bracelet, or customize the look by layering and stacking two or three bangles. Whichever you decide, the effect will be red carpet ready.
Statement earrings can add shimmer and glamour to your look. From chandelier earrings to oversized studs, these pieces can draw attention to the face and not overpower you or your beautiful dress.
Headbands are my absolute favorites of the seaseon and one of the most popular bridal looks this year. This is the perfect chance to add more sparkle to your outfit and works great with any hair styles.
Here are some of my favorites from Malis Henderson and MEG Jewelry:

Rise above the rest, the gown that stood out from all others belongs to one of my favorite designers is this beautiful A- line gown from Anjolique. The dropped waist elongates the torso and shows off the tiny waist of every bride. Made of incredibly light silk and also featuring a built- in corset, this dress is unbelievably comfortable to wear. The breathtaking detail across the empire is just enough and it is so elegantly placed. From the back, the intricate detail looks like a pair of angel wings which I absolutely love it!
For a bride dreaming for a fairy tale wedding looking like modern Cinderella, this is definitely THE GOWN! It is so simple yet very elegant.
