Traditional white ballgown not your thing? We get it. You want a dress that’s as bold and beautiful as you are! From jaw-droppingly gorgeous beaded gowns to oh-so pretty two pieced wonders, here are eight dresses that will inspire you to stray from the norm and opt for a nontraditional bridal style.

Something Blue:

Hello four layers of absolute perfection! This breathtaking soft blue tulle skirt from BoomBlush makes our hearts flutter.

Boho Beauty:

Handmade with reclaimed vintage lace, this one-of-a-kind dress from WeAreReclamation is a boho bride’s dream come true!

Double Trouble:

We’ve long been partial to two-piece wedding dresses. This nude tulle skirt from BeautyWeddingDesign would look amazing paired with a cozy sweater for a civil winter wedding, or a beaded top for a laid-back summer wedding.

A Galaxy Far Far Away:

Holy swoon! This sparkly gown from BoomBlush will make jaws drop.

Sheer Elegance:

We’re smitten with this sheer ivory gown from BoudoirWedding. Wear it with a slip underneath, or don’t… Your bridal look can be as bold as you want it to be!

On the Fringe:

Ok, so this dress from Farfetch isn’t exactly affordable (in fact, it costs more than the average American wedding!) but we couldn’t not include it. It’s just too stunning! If you love this style as much as we do, you can find a more affordable beaded fringe dress here, here and here, and a beautiful beaded fringe jacket here.

Silky Slip:

Silk charmeuse? Yes please! Swathe yourself in luxury with the Minerva Dress from Reformation.

Wild and Wonderful:

This beauty from WowBridalDress is just as much a piece of art as it is a wedding dress! We love the funky embroidery; books, ants, leaves… totally random, but it works!
