The modern woman wants to be unique and special on her wedding day, even while she looks and feels important. Wedding designers recognize this need of the modern-day bride. So, it is only natural that they have come up with impressively bold and daring collections that cater to this requirement.


Wedding dress with colored bodice

There is something remarkably intriguing about white wedding dresses with a colored bodice. Despite the look being mainly white, a simple addition of color will drastically alter the overall effect. Whether the bodice has a muted color or a bright one, there is a definite injection of personality into the bridal look. I think this is an attractive new way to incorporate the colors of your wedding theme into the bridal look.  


Wedding dress with deep-dip neckline

Confidence is the middle name of the modern bride, and what better way to show it off than with a dress with a daring neckline detail. Low-cut V-necklines with or without modesty panels on them have been on the scene for a long time now. However, this choice isn’t for the faint at heart, as not all brides want to invite scandal on their wedding day. Nevertheless, there are brides who can carry it off with style and are long remembered for the sexy-and-stunning bridal day look.  


Wedding dresses with sheer midriff

Brides do not usually hesitate to try on or choose dresses with strapless necklines, despite the fact that they expose greater part of the shoulders and neckline. Nevertheless, the trend of showing off the midriff is a newer one and less common. After all, it is not something that everyone can carry off. New designer wear collections however, explore the potential of this look. There are a number of designs with lace and sheer bodices that conceal the bust but leave the midriff to view.


Barely-there bodice with 3-D motifs as embellishments

Taking the sheer bodice effect as step further are mermaid wedding dresses with barely-visible bodices. The bodice is usually made with sheer fabric. These dresses often feature beautiful but delicate details in the bodice. The most attractive factor about them is their wispy, barely-there effect. Certainly not suitable for traditional weddings and those held in a house of worship, these dresses are nonetheless arresting and unique in their own right.


Full-open back detail

Many a modern bride has the confidence to carry off daring wedding dresses with intriguing features not only in the front, but also in the rear. The safer option is to choose an illusion or sheer neckline. However, nothing compares with the attractive style of a back that opens all the way up to the waistline. It is a perfect dress feature for a bride who wants a wedding dress with a touch of glamour. 


Non-white wedding dress

When we think of a bride, the image that comes to mind is of a lady in a ravishing gown in white. Today’s brides however step away from convention without a qualm, when they embrace colors in their wedding day ensemble. From colored bodices and all-over colored dresses to bridal gowns with colorful prints, embellishments and embroidery, we’ve seen it all.


Extravagant ball gown

The ball gown is the traditional wedding dress silhouette. However, it doesn’t really have many takers these days. Often described as meringue-like, many brides feel it is too over-the-top for their liking. The adventurous bride however finds this an interesting dress style to make a statement on her wedding day. With additional features like ruffles, tassels and lace, the elaborate ball gown can look striking and attractive.


Caped beauties

Accessories are a must-have for every bride. We have seen brides experiment with various options, from belts and sashes to veils and jewelry. Capes are a recent entry on the scene. These continue to be the accessory-of-choice for the bride who wants a unique look on her special day. This is an accessory that flows down from the shoulders to floor length. The cape magically transforms any dress.  


Bridal pant suits

The final, but most unconventional bridal dress is the bridal pant suit. This is often chosen by brides who aren’t comfortable in dresses. It is also the choice of dress for mature brides. It is also often spotted at lesbian weddings. Bridal pant suits aren’t technically dresses. Even so, it is a fresh alternative that is just as impressive as a regular wedding dress. Designer wedding bridal suits come in all shapes and sizes. They can be well-tailored, fitted designs or even loose bridal jumpsuits. Accessories like veils and bouquets pair well with this wedding dress style, and often complete the bridal trousseau in style.
