A new year means the opportunity to try something different with your wedding. One of the many ways that you can bring a new look to your appearance on the day of your wedding is by wearing a unique and memorable wedding dress. If you’re looking for a way to stand out, a unique dress gives you the opportunity to show your personality in a simple, but effective way. Additionally, a nontraditional wedding dress can allow you to inject your personality into a fundamental part of your wedding.


A Color Other Than White

It’s becoming more and more common for brides to forgo a white or even cream wedding gown and opt for a different color. In 2019, a trend to look out for is brides wearing dresses in different shades of lavender. Lavender is a simple and sleek color that offers many beautiful color combinations. Another color that is taking the wedding world by storm is gold. Many brides are stunning in these metallic colored dresses.


Wedding Jumpsuits or Short Dress

If dresses aren’t really your thing, a wedding jumpsuit could represent a chic alternative to the traditional gown. This style gives you mobility so you’re ready to bust a move on the dance floor. Jumpsuits themselves come in a variety of different styles that allow you to still have some say in the intricacies of the style. Short dresses are also in style for brides who do not wish to have the hassle of a long and huge dress. If you love to dance, a short dress is a perfect opportunity to have mobility while maintaining a glamorous look.


Trains and Capes

Every girl dreams of being a queen on her wedding day. Nothing says queen like a cape or train. In this situation, the longer the better. You’ll feel like Kate Middleton as you glide down the aisle with a long train dragging behind you. This is also a versatile style that can look stunning with many different types of dresses.

If you’re a bride that loves standing out, this is the style for you. Embellishments can add an exciting element to your dress that will put your personality on display. Embellishments can also be used to add a pop of color to your wedding dress if you don’t want to commit to having your entire dress become a bold color.
