If you’re the kind of girl who never wears dresses then the idea of slipping into a full-on wedding dress may be a little too much. We get it, wedding dresses are gorgeous, but they’re not for everyone.
While you may face pressure from images of smiling brides in princess gowns at every turn or have a mother or mother-in-law who is simply desperate to see you in a traditional gown, we think it’s always best to stick with what you feel good in and what feels right for your special day.
Luckily, there are heaps of fabulous and fashionable alternatives in bridal boutiques and high street stores for you to choose from. These days every bride should be able to find a wedding outfit that they feel comfortable in and that is totally them.
We’re obsessed with quirky bridal alternatives and find even the most girlie, dress-loving among us have to admit we’d be seriously tempted by the selection. Firstly, we fell head over heels for wedding jumpsuits and now we’re having a real bridal separates moment.
Your wedding day should be deeply personal and unique and your wedding fashion is no different. With bridal separates, you can mix and match items so that you end up with a bespoke outfit unlike any you’ve seen on a bride before. Once you’ve added your wedding shoes and accessories, you’ll have a truly original look.
To get you started on your way to non-traditional wedding fashion heaven, we’ve scoured the web for the very best wedding trouser suits and two-piece sets. Every piece is totally different and everything from slips and tabards to sharp suits are included, so whatever your style you can find something simply perfect for you.
Debit cards at the ready, we predict you’ll be saying yes to the anti-dress.
