Not Your Grandmother’s Wedding

Weddings have certain characteristics that define them- a special white dress, a veil, and flowers. But what if we take those and give them a fun little tweak? Be forewarned, these are definitely not your grandmother’s wedding!

All the necessary things that characterize a bride are here- the dress, the veil and the flowers. But check out what the stylist has done. This special dress is beautiful water-colored silk by Missoni. The veil is a tulle hat by Louis Vuitton. And the flowers are silk taffeta!

Here’s a white dress with a veil, but look closely. The veil is pale pink instead of white. And the styling twist is knee socks worn with traditional patent leather shoes!

Is this a bride or not? She’s wearing white but not in the traditional sense. Here the dress is a white silk crepe de chine by Tommy Hilfiger. The white hat is actually a sculpted visor made of panama straw with vintage veiling. It’s from Karen Henriken.

A full-length beaded veil suggests a bride. But what’s underneath? A tube top and gabardine shorts! Wow!

This example of the white dress and veil gets edgy when given black accents. Here’s a vintage black veil, black jewelry, and black Dr.Martens boots.

Usually the bride has the long hair and wears white. Not this time!
