On-trend with Modern Wedding Dresses

When you first think of a wedding dress your imagination most likely goes to the traditional white dress. But what about modern wedding dresses?  

If you love fashion and like to be on trend in all aspects of your life, there's no doubt you'll want to reflect your love of fashion in your choice of wedding gown too.  

Your wedding will be a great opportunity to splash out on a fabulous on-trend outfit and the chance to pull out all the stops in your choice of style.

With today's relaxed convention, there are so many different bridal styles to choose from. Modern wedding dresses in particular are becoming a major feature in the collections of many designers.

Whether you prefer couture or high street, there are now plenty of options out there for women who intend to be the chicest of brides.

Really, the world is your oyster when it comes to giving your bridal look a progressive edge – not only do you not have to stick to white or ivory, you don’t even have to stick to a dress. 

Trouser suits or skirt suits are also an option. Choose a colour that gives a nod to the occasion, and accessorise with flowers, even a hat and short veil, to reflect your bridal status.

Modern wedding dresses are especially relevant in an age where a wedding reaches beyond the walls of a church and reception.

Your options are almost as wide as wedding gowns themselves, with many couples taking to beaches or fields to say their vows.

How to Create the Modern Bridal Look

There are so many ways you can create a modern bridal look!  

Quite simply, you can take a traditional style and bring it galloping into the 21st century.  Take a skirt and make it into a plume of ruffles. Take a classic cut and make it into a modern wedding dress by vamping it up with colour.  Cut it short for more informal venues, or be the ultimate fashion icon at your very own wedding. 

Just make sure you still feel like a bride – that is the most important thing. It's your day and you can wear exactly what you wish, and if not dropping your devotion to prevailing fashion is your thing, go for it and choose a modern wedding dress.
