Calling all alternative brides who desire a non-traditional wedding dress for their fairy-tale ending! While traditional white gowns are a timeless choice, some brides are on the hunt for something a little more unconventional. If you’re one of those brides, buckle up and throw that rulebook away girl because here, we’re all about embracing our quirks. Without further ado, here are some unconventional dress ideas from your favorite TV show brides that are simply to die for!
Weave in a Personal Symbol
Incorporating an elaborate symbol near and dear to your heart will transform you into the ultimate goddess. Margaery Tyrell’s breathtaking wedding gown in Game of Thrones is complete with a train of roses, giving a nice nod to her Highgarden upbringing. Her fab dress is without a doubt one of our favorite wedding dresses ever, even though we have some major issues with the man she is marrying (yikes, don’t do it, girl!).
Don’t hesitate to cut your dress short for a more fun and flirty look. Jessa was never going to wear a traditional wedding gown, so for her unexpected nuptials to Thomas-John in Girls, she opts for an iconic mini dress instead because why not? We’re totally here for this. As if her dress isn’t already the ultimate wedding goals, the fishnet veil just tops it all off! And boy, does she look good. So. Freakin’. Chic.
Glam Up with a Homemade Skirt
If you’re looking to make a bold statement on your wedding day, take a cue from Leslie and opt for a DIY skirt. Ann, Leslie’s BFF, brilliantly crafts a collage-style skirt in Parks and Recreation using newspaper clippings from Leslie’s job. Pair your unique skirt with some killer heels like Leslie’s red pumps and a bold lip color for a look that is both edgy and glamorous. Yes, very Leslie. You do you, boo!
Ditch the White Dress
Who says you have to wear white on your wedding day? Take a hint from Blair Waldorf and go for a colored dress. They’re just as elegant and sophisticated as white ones. The entire universe agrees that if anyone can pull off a non-traditional blue wedding dress, it’s Blair when she weds Chuck Bass in Gossip Girl, right before they get arrested! Blair certainly knows a fashion moment when she sees one. The delicate detailing on Blair’s wedding dress is also just chef’s kiss.
Rock a Headpiece Crown
Let’s be honest, nobody has recovered from the bomb combination that is the elegant headpiece with the exquisite wedding dress Rachel wears in the Friends pilot, where we first see her as she flees her wedding. Rachel really goes for it and her headpiece and veil serve up some major unconventional wardrobe inspiration. We’re totally here for her stylish vibe. We love a look that is both modern and timeless.
From colored dresses to layers crafted with intricately embroidered motifs, our favorite TV show characters show us that there are plenty of unreal alternative wedding ideas to add your own panache. A sprinkle of boho here, a wink to vintage there, or whatever personal flair you’re manifesting, we promise it will make you feel fierce and take the world by storm on your special day!
