In regards to the non-wedding-wedding dresses, the mass majority of girls simply won’t be able to shake the idea of wearing something other than the formal wedding gown- and that’s totally okay. It just isn't what they envisioned growing up and anything short of that just feels wrong. But for others, and you know who you are, to slip on that formal wedding gown would feel more like putting on a costume than anything else and wearing it would be more for the sake of your family members than for yourself. Does it matter whether a formal wedding dress fits your personality or not? You have to wear it, right??.. or else your marriage isn’t legitimate, it's a sham! Besides, you wouldn’t want your grandmother to faint during the procession because you broke the rules!
But the truth is that not every bride fits that mold of the long white (and sometimes puffy) wedding gown, and that's okay. We love the idea of having a more un-conventional dress that's accessorized to the tee.
Again, we know that this isn’t for everybody, but for those of you whom this speaks to, this blog goes out to you. Hopefully your encouraged to embrace the idea (rather than run from it because you think something must be wrong with you) of the more non-traditional wedding and dress. Be assured that you can still look absolutely stunning when you walk the down the “aisle” (or whatever you are non-traditionally walking down) in dress that fits your personality. With this photo-shoot we wanted to highlight a couple of different looks that could fit the bill of the category of smaller, more non-traditional type of weddings. We’d love to hear your responses.
