Have You Considered Alternative Wedding Dresses?

Have You Considered Alternative Wedding Dresses?

Increasingly, brides and grooms planning their wedding are putting unique spins on the ceremony and surrounding celebrations to create a bespoke day that speaks to them as individuals and as a couple. But while certain elements of a western wedding day will change or be left out from some nuptials, other elements remain constant and scarcely change. One of these is the bride’s big white dress. 

However, you don’t need to play by the rules if a traditional dress isn’t your thing. Perhaps you could consider a wedding jumpsuit or even a two-piece bridal outfit. Whatever your preference, for your bridal inspiration, read on to find out more about alternative wedding outfits. 

The alternative bride dress

Even those that never wear dresses or aren’t into lacy creations will often opt for a big, white one-wear dress just because it’s the “done” thing. The “proper” thing that you probably should have been dreaming of since you were a little girl. But at NADINE MERABI, we want to change that by creating options for those looking for an alternative bride dress.

Our bridal collection is not only designed to include unique pieces, but we also want them to speak to would-be brides looking for pieces that glamorously straddle the space between bridalwear and the clothing options that they usually go for. Sure, your wedding day look should be something special and heightened, but that doesn't mean transforming into someone entirely different for what should be the day when you feel most inherently yourself.

The NADINE MERABI bridal collection is packed full of pieces that will prove a welcome alternative for those who are struggling to say “I do” to a meringue-like gown. Instead, we have tailored pieces like our feather-trim MARGOT Blazer. The crepe and satin mix of this stunning blazer makes for a striking white bridal suit when combined with our MARGOT white trousers.

For those looking for something slinkier, whether it be for the whole affair or for when the DJ starts their set, we have plenty of chic party dresses sure to satisfy this demand, each reworking bridal tropes with a MERABI touch and sense of style. 

If you want a bridal jumpsuit, we have plenty of choices that will make you feel more comfortable. Take our LUCINDA White jumpsuit featuring our exclusive pearl white shimmer sequins, for example. Or perhaps you’d like the bow-backed EMILIEE or the LOUISA, which is embellished and has a seductive thigh-high split. We have pieces that speak to any woman looking for a dress for this especially important sartorial decision.

But opting for a wedding dress that doesn't conform to the stereotypical big white gown, such as a two-piece bridal outfit, doesn’t only have style payoff. Consider that these pieces will immediately prove so much more than a one-wear item and then they also pick up sustainable credentials. What could be nicer than knowing that the outfit you choose to wear on your wedding day will hold and gain new memories with each wear?

You may style the outfit for your big day even further for an additionally different look. Try adding in more colourful pieces than a singular ‘something blue’ or even leave the veil in the bridal suite. Our bridal collection is designed to create impact on your special day and to equally be appropriate for you to wear to a wealth of life’s special moments. There truly is no need for an alter ego on your wedding day. Find your favourite outfit for your forever favourite day at MERABI.
