6 Alternative Yet Understated Wedding Dress Styles

We love tradition, but sometimes it's great to be different. We speak to a lot of brides who are looking for something unique yet subtle, something different but still something that says 'bride'. It's a tough one to balance, so we've put together some inspiration to help you plan a big day look that's far from same-old. From pastels to glitter, prints to seperates, these styles will make sure you wow down the aisle. 

Injecting a bit of colour into your look doesn't have to mean full on brights if you don't want to. Go for toned down pastels in layers of tulle or lace for a softer more subdued look. Compliment the look with a contrasting pastel clutch bag.
