Who says you have to wear a white dress on your wedding day? That’s the best part about eloping — there are no rules! It’s the perfect time to break out a bright colored ensemble, play up different silhouettes and maybe even give a nod to your favorite era. For all of our adventurous brides out there that want to do something different, here’s a few ideas for non-traditional wedding gowns that we’re loving right now!
Be Bold in Black
While white is a bridal tradition, black still gives us major heart eyes! It’s the perfect amount of edge for a modern elopement. Not to mention it makes for some magical, moody photography that is totally frameworthy.
A Pop of Color
Play up your feminine side with a pink hue for your dress! While blush tends to be a popular pick, we’ve been seeing more modern brides wearing red, green and even blue wedding gowns. Have a favorite color? You might as well wear it on your wedding day!
Two-Pieces Aren’t Just for the Pool
One of the hottest wedding trends for 2022, bridal separates are growing in popularity. Brides are now looking for pieces that they can wear again or transition straight to a mini reception with ease. We’re loving crop and corset style tops with long skirts and pants lately!
A Floral Queen
You’ll look like you just stepped out of a romance novel in an ethereal floral pattern design. If you’re planning to elope at a private estate, home, or rooftop, a floral wedding dress can make for some stunning wedding photography.
Go for a Mini or Midi
Why shorten your dress later when you can wear a mini now? If you’d rather show a little more leg on your wedding day, you can’t go wrong with a mini or midi design. For all of our petite brides out there, this can be a favorable choice if you’re worried about tripping over a long train all day!
Make a Statement in Metallic
Shine baby, shine! You’ll feel like a queen wearing a metallic wedding gown. Imagine eloping outside while the sun catches the fabric of your dress. Now THAT’S what we call golden hour!
Borrowed From the Boys
Dresses not your thing? Go for a chic jumpsuit or pant suit! Bridal jumpsuits continue to be a top choice for modern brides to wear to any wedding related event from showers to rehearsal dinners. But we’re all for wearing one during your elopement, too!
