A lot of weddings are traditional, set in a church with friends and family of the bride and groom in attendance. It is a regimented affair where the groom tends to wear a suit and the bride is dressed in a long flowy white wedding dress.
It is okay to want to go against this structure, if you want a wedding that is a little more you and personalised then that is great.
This article will give tips on how to achieve a more alternative bridal style.
The dress can be the single most important aspect for a lot of women on their wedding today. Wedding dresses traditionally are white gowns, varying in materials and tone.
If you are the type of girl who is not that interested in this traditional image of a wedding dress, there are plenty of websites online which sell alternative wedding dresses. Such as an article by MarieClare, which shows a range of dresses which have added glitter or sparkle on a white dress all the way to completely bold colours and unique wedding dress designs.
Just find what dress works for you and your wedding.
The wedding ring given during the ceremony, or the engagement ring which starts off the whole wedding process is an important symbol of marriage that people tend to wear throughout their married lives.
Traditionally engagement rings tend to be a silver ring with a white diamond, and the wedding ring is a plain gold or silver band. If you would rather a less traditional wedding or engagement ring, Offbeat Bride is a website which has a whole section dedicated to rings for alternative brides and weddings. Their rings are all ethically sourced.
