Wedding dress ideas you won’t find in a bridal magazine

There are a lot of resources out there for planning a wedding, but what if you’re a bride who is after a dress that is a little unconventional, offbeat or simply more in tune with your personal style? We got you. The perfect wedding dress doesn’t always require the word in its title. Sometimes it’s hanging in the racks of your favorite boutique, just waiting for you. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite wedding dress ideas from our boutiques and designers to help you find your wedding style.

CONSIDER THE UNKNOWN It’s no secret that we’re fans of emerging designers, so of course we’re big fans of discovering someone new when it comes to your wedding dress. Our co-founder Adele Tetangco discovered Callahan through an industry colleague (seen above). The Los Angeles-based designer had the perfect dress for her destination wedding. (Lucky for you, you can buy it below.)

GO FOR A LANGUID TANK DRESS Hackwith Design House and Shaina Mote have perfect examples of why a simple, long dress with clean lines in white can answer all of your bridal prayers.

THINK BEYOND WHITE Alternative hues is trending in the wedding world, so there’s every reason to look outside of bridal salons for your dress. MNZ and Rachel Comey have options that are totally appropriate for this, as does Kamperett out of San Francisco. A splash of color on an otherwise classic white dress can strike a happy balance.

FIND STRUCTURED LACE If you love the romantic feel of lace, but not the usual bridal silhouettes, consider a midi-length with some structure. Suzanne Rae and Rodebjer have mastered the find line of traditional romantic and fashion-forward.
