While lovely lace wedding dresses and romantic ball gowns are popular amongst many brides, more and more women are choosing unique wedding dresses for their bridal ensembles. Unique and unusual wedding dresses still offer the same beauty and ethereal designs as their more-traditional counterparts; however, they truly stand out from the crowd. Ideal for the trend-setting bride, many designers are now incorporating gowns featuring interesting details, various hues, and eye-catching silhouettes into each collection.

If you don't like the idea of wearing a white dress, try a gown in a pale pink hue, or go even bolder with a black or red wedding dress. And if you've always envisioned yourself wearing wedding white on your big day, choose a gown embellished with gold embroidery or adorned with crystals and beads for a vintage-inspired design. Short wedding dresses add a bit of personality to a more casual affair, and unique trims and silhouettes can add another element of allure to your not-so-traditional wedding gown. Or wear a dress inspired by the iconic fashion in your favorite film, such as Gone with the Wind or The Great Gatsby!
