Sure, wedding magazines are filled with pictures of brides in taffeta and lace and grooms in tuxes; but what if that’s not your style? What if you want your wedding day attire to reflect a little more of you? Remember, while the traditional white wedding gown seems like a must today, it’s a relatively new idea. Brides used to simply get married in their best dress and grooms in their best clothes. Why not express your individuality in more than just your centerpieces and wedding favors? You may need to do some explaining to your extended family why it’s ok to wear something unusual, but if the two of you are happy with what you’re wearing, that’s all that matters!
From mild to wild, here are some great ideas:
Mild: If you still picture yourself in a white wedding dress, but want to add a little fun, why not add a pop of color? Our favorites include using your wedding colors in a sash, on buttons, as a petticoat, or even on your shoes!
Medium: For a casual beach wedding, why not a white sundress? You’ll be more comfortable and will be able to get around easier on the beach.
Wild: Why not dress in costume for a themed wedding or wear your favorite green gown? It’s up to you!
|Who says you can't wear a green dress?|
Mild: You can have fun with color, too! Maybe some bright socks, a festive tie or fantastic shoes that coordinate with the rest of the wedding colors.
Medium: Instead of a full tux, many men are choosing to wear just a vest over shirtsleeves. It’s still a polished look, but isn’t as formal.
Wild: You, too, can enjoy a costume for a themed wedding, or an over-the-top bespoke suit that fits your personality!
