Brides today want that pizzazz and a dress that’s fully befitting their personality and individual tastes. This creates a lot of freedom of choice that’s not bound to the traditional silhouettes. As a result, choosing a wedding dress becomes a fun shopping experience rather than a pressure-filled and overwhelming process.
Many designers have seen the same forming need and started creating stunning pieces that combine elegance, glamour, and laid-back fun. This lowers the risk of brides investing in an expensive dress that might not be quite them simply to honor tradition. Of course, the luxurious tulle and taffeta gowns are a thing of the past, but there are simply more fun and fresh designs available that could easily fit in a town hall or beach venue with the same ease.
The Option to Personalize the Dress
A number of contemporary designers are embracing the romance over tradition movement that young brides want. Lines have been released that showcase couture pieces that are more art-focused and break the mold. Continuing to use luxurious satin, chiffon, tulle, and lace, designers are shaking off the “princess vibe” by crafting a-line kaftans, two-piece bridal suits, short and fun dresses for the bride that loves to dance, and much more.
In most cases, a designer is willing to work directly with the bride to help personalize the piece further by adding eye-catching details, changing the color of the fabric, and other customization options. As a result, modern brides can acquire alternative pieces that feel more like an extension of themselves rather than conforming to what they think they should be wearing for such an occasion.
