A Look at Some of the Best Contemporary Wedding Styles

Wedding Planning

We're pretty obsessed with unique, non-traditional wedding style, so have pulled together our top picks for your - and our - viewing pleasure!


1. Sweatshirt & Tulle

We love how laid back, yet incredibly sexy this look is. Everything from the sweatshirt to the pony tail right down to the gorgeous tulle skirt and the lace accent - everything looks polished yet carefree.

2. Suit-Pant Elegance

This look is the epitome of chic. The white top and wide-leg pants from Stella McCartney could easily be worn on your wedding day. Amal Alamuddin wore this for her civil ceremony to George Clooney, but we think why not rock this at any or every part of your wedding celebration.

 3. Bejewelled Beauties

We are quite partial to a bit of dazzle on your wedding day and these two dresses bring the perfect combination of 1920's elegance and bejewelled goddess-ness!

4. Capes & Gold Platted Shoes

This is one of our favourite wedding styles ever. From the cape and the red lips to the bikes and the gold platted shoes, absolutely nothing is wrong about this... absolutely nothing.

5. Ravishing in Red

We are totally floored by this dress. Nothing could be more romantic or perfect for the season than a bride in red.

6. Bunny Ears & Lace Romper

We love rompers and we love lace and we love ... bunny ears! Because why the hell not??

7. Long Hair Don't Care

We can't get past the flowers, the gorgeous lace sleeves and that hair!!  This is what dreams are made of.

8. Old School Elegance

Liz Taylor's 1964 wedding style could easily work today. The flowing chiffon gown, the floral headpiece of lilies and hyacinths intertwined throughout her long pony tail. Perfect for a spring wedding.
