Not every bride wants to head down the aisle in white or ivory and here at Maria Modes, we’re fine with that. As much as we love a traditional wedding gown, we also adore some of the less traditional wedding dresses we have in our showroom and they’re what we’re going to be focusing on today.
We’re going to be giving you an insight into some of our favourite colourful wedding dresses we have in store that are ideal for the non-traditional bride.
Ian Stuart Bluebell Wedding Dress
Ian Stuart is known for his edgy bridal designs and colour is certainly something he isn’t afraid to play around with.
The Bluebell wedding dress from his Le Jardin collection isn’t just bold thanks to its dramatic shape and heavy embellishment but also because of its less than traditional colour choice.
Although available in an ivory colour, the Bluebell gown is also available in dark blue, rose and honey, all covered with a sheer layer of applique covered net which still lets the colour shine through.
This dress is a great choice for the bolder bride and no matter how much of a colour statement you want to make, this dress will come in a shade that will work for you.
Ian Stuart Forget Me Not Wedding Dress
Another stunning choice from Ian Stuart that is ideal if you want to inject a little more colour into your bridal outfit is the Forget Me Not wedding gown. Also from the Le Jardin collection, the Forget Me Not dress is a classic ballgown shape with strapless fitted bodice and voluminous skirt that accentuates from the waist.
Covered in lace and crystals, the Forget Me Not dress is available in a classic all ivory colour palette but for the bolder bride, it is also available in rose with ivory details, honey with multicoloured details and rose with multicoloured details, making for a subtle but noticeable touch of colour.
Ideal for the bride who wants to keep the shape of her gown traditional and make more of a statement with the finer details, this intricately embellished gown uses delicate touches of colour to bring the dress to life.
Maggie Sottero Ettia Wedding Dress
If you’re looking for a gown that isn’t too edgy but isn’t quite your standard all-white bridal dress, the Maggie Sottero Ettia dress is a perfect choice, especially if you like vintage-inspired designs.
The Ettia gown is a true nod to the 1920’s with the straight shape and heavy beading embellishment and the ivory over champagne colourway has a unique metallic shine that is unlike the fabric of any other wedding dress in our showroom.
An almost silver shine in certain lights, the metallic material of the Ettia dress is bound to help you turn heads as you walk down the aisle.
Mori Lee Meadow Wedding Dress
Another ideal wedding dress that isn’t totally untraditional but isn’t your standard all ivory gown either. Although the Mori Lee Meadow dress is available in white or ivory, it’s also available in a nude pink shade with ivory detailing, a stunning middle ground between classic and something a little bolder.
The elegant nude colour of the Meadow gown is feminine and simply helps the contrasting ivory detailing stand out whilst still being neutral, understated and super easy to style with accessories.
Maggie Sottero Nalani Wedding Dress
The ultimate choice for the bride who doesn’t consider herself totally untraditional but wants to add a little colour to her look, the Maggie Sottero Nalani dress is available in an all ivory colour palette but is also available in an ivory fabric with blush pink accents that add a subtle touch of colour throughout the gown.
This understated and classic princess style gown is made from a soft Eniko textured fabric for extra detail and this stitched and 3D embellishment in blush pinks adds extra intricacy to this beautifully crafted gown.
Whether you want to go all out with a bold coloured gown to totally buck tradition or just want to add a subtle touch of colour to your overall look, we hope you’ve found our rundown of the best untraditional wedding dresses helpful.
