Four Fabulously Original Frocks

by Michelle

You loved our traditional versus original  take on wedding stationery last week, so we wanted to share with you four non traditional wedding dresses today.

If you hate the idea of a traditional white princess style gown and veil, then worry not, there are so many head turning alternatives to consider. Just take a look at these four fab gowns. We love each one as they each contain a traditional element; they are all full length, so you still have the conventional element of a wedding dress, but then each has a fantastic feel of fun and that all important wow factor that makes it totally original.

The Effortlessly Sexy Gown

This gorgeous lace Emanuela gown from the aptly named Australian brand Grace loves Lace is fabulously feminine, sophisticated and oh so effortlessly sexy.

Luxurious panels of French laces fused with modern geometric patterns give this dress and edgy feel with the nude lining emphasising the lace detail. The silhouette is fitted, whilst allowing freedom of movement to dance the night away. If ever there was a wedding dress made for a good old shimmy, this one is it.

The Laid Back Luxe Gown

Simple effortless glamour with luxurious details are the highlights of our next gown, the Suki also by Grace Loves Lace. It features a clean silhouette, has a fabulous free-flowing line with an elegant V front and back. it’s completed with silk straps and godets of fabric at the front, sides and centre back hem that extends into a train.

The sequinned net embroidery creates a coral style pattern that glistens in the sun – just imagine how absolutely amazing this would look on a hot summer’s day or at your destination wedding?  This handmade gown is the perfect alternative to lace in the most ‘carefree cool’ and opulent way. A true example of the laid back luxe style that we love so much.

The Figure Hugging Sheer Delight Gown

This Chelsea gown by Dando London is a fabulous choice for brides looking for a figure hugging gown that both covers and reveals in all the right places. Stunning applique detail to the bodice and full lace embroidery along the edge of the skirt gives this gown a beautifully detailed finish.

The back is so flattering too with its illusion panels in nude tulle with lace appliqué detail and pearl button fastening.  You can just picture how gorgeous you will look in this from any angle, but especially in one of those nonchalant over the shoulder poses that would capture the back detail, including the sumptuous fishtail, so very well.

The Beautiful Ethereal Gown 

This Luca gown by Rue de Seine is such a divine, unique gown.  Definitely one for the bride looking for something totally different. It features delicate embroidery on a fine soft mesh, giving it ethereal and elegant other worldly sort of drama. This is such a Midsummer Night’s dream of a dress

Beading, the delicate fringe trim and contemporary embroidery keep the gown feeling youthful and totally unique. Form fitted sleeves and silhouette to low hip, giving way to a full skirt, and medium train.

The back of the dress is absolutely stunning with its low scoop and further figure enhancing embroidery. Such a magical dress don’t you think?
