Unique Wedding Dresses

Brides begin dreaming of their wedding day from the time that they are little girls. You want your wedding to be perfect and you want to look spectacular but you're not sure where to begin looking for that ever so breathtaking unique dress.

Some brides see themselves in Cinderella type dresses while others envision themselves in slinky, unique strapless gowns. The choices are endless and you need suggestions, right?

This unique bridal dresses page is designed to help you explore the many styles and options available to you. Choosing the perfect type bridal dress isn't always easy, so I'm here to try and limit the frustration and guesswork. It is also my intention to make shopping for your dress fun and exciting.

Budget for Unique Wedding Dresses

One of the first decisions you will have to make regarding your bridal gown is how much of your budget you will set aside for your dress.

If money is not an object, then your options are limitless. You can choose a designer gown, create your own dress and have a tailor make it for you or you can pick a gown and make changes to suit your exact taste and unique style.

If you're a budget conscious bride you may want to borrow a family member or friend's gown. Perhaps your Mom or special aunt preserved their dress and you will have it freshened up and tailor the gown to fit you.

Some brides may have a friend or family member who is a good seamstress and can purchase a pattern and make your dress for you. Other cost conscious brides visit a consignment shop; find a dress through the classified ads, e-Bay, Craig's List, or a garage sale.

Another option for the cost conscious bride is to rent your gown. An added bonus of renting a gown is that you don't have to clean and store your bridal outfit.

Most brides have a budget somewhere between, money is not an object, to, what's the least expensive dress I can find. These brides usually will go to a bridal store and choose a dress off the rack, or order their dress from a shop and have a few fittings before their special day.

Style for Unique Wedding Dresses

Consider the length of your gown. Do you want a short, tea length or to the floor bridal dress? Typically, formal weddings lend themselves to floor length gowns with long trains, while an informal affair is a great place to wear a short, less formal dress.

Unique Wedding Dresses

You may choose a dress to coordinate with your unique theme. If you're having a Fairy Tale Theme wedding you may wish to have a Cinderella type dress.

Another bride may choose a form fitting sheath dress to harmonize with a chic, modern motif. A simple sheath type bridal dress would also work well with a beach theme.

Whatever style dress you are interested in, be sure that the style of the dress compliments your figure.

Unique Wedding Dresses

Typically a small framed, very petite bride will look lost and cannot carry a big, puffy ball gown bridal dress. Conversely, a tall bride can carry a fuller, puffy dress without overwhelming her frame.

Unique Wedding Dresses

As the name implies, an A-line gown usually has a fitted bodice with the skirt flaring gently from the waist. A-line gowns are not as full as ball gowns, typically look good on all brides and work especially well for brides that want to hide their lower body imperfections.

Unique Wedding Dresses

Napoleon's wife Josephine brought the high waist empire dress into vogue during the 19th century. This style bridal gown has a skirt that begins just below the bust.

Empire waist gowns are a good choice for a non formal wedding or a beach theme. They can be worn by pregnant brides as it gives more room in the stomach area making it a comfortable choice.

Unique Wedding Dresses

A mermaid or trumpet style dress has a tight fitting top then flairs out at the knees making it a good choice for a formal affair.

Unique Wedding Dresses – Colors

Most brides of the Western culture choose a white, off white, cream, egg shell or ivory dress; however, in China and India a red bridal dress is the norm.

If you're a bit daring or want to have a unique wedding dress, how about choosing a white dress with your favorite color as an accent on the trim or borders of your gown.


The neckline of your dress should compliment your face and body type.

Strapless gowns are quite popular today but strapless is not your only option. Some large breasted women are not comfortable with a strapless gown believing it makes them look like they're busting out.

A few small breasted brides have said that the "bones" and wires used to hold the dress up dug into their ribs making the dress uncomfortable to wear.

Other necklines to choose from include:

  • V-Neck
  • Scoop Neck
  • Square Neck
  • Spaghetti Straps
  • Queen Anne
  • Halter
  • Sweet Heart
  • Off the Shoulder
  • One Strap

    Unique Wedding Dresses – Sleeve Length

    The temperature of a brides wedding day can influence her choice of sleeve length. It stands to reason that if you're getting married in a cold climate you may want to consider long sleeves, conversely, if it's going to be a hot sweltering day, a good choice would be cap sleeves or sleeveless.

    A medieval or renaissance theme would call for a dress with long flowing sleeves.

    Unique Wedding Dresses – Beads, Bangles and more

    So, are you a glitzy person? If your answer is yes, than choose a dress with lots of beads and bangles.

    Pearls and Swarovski crystals look spectacular on a gown but remember that they are expensive and you should keep their cost in mind when setting your budget for your dress.

    If you're having a vintage theme, consider a Queen Anne neckline with lots of lace accents.

    Ruffles are beautiful, romantic and girly, if you like the look, go for it!

    Fabric for your Unique Wedding Dresses

    Choosing the right fabric for your gown is as important as choosing the right style. Many bridal gowns are created by using several different fabrics.

    Satin and taffeta fabrics offer more body than other fabrics such as chiffon or georgette. Each material is designed to produce a distinct effect. Some fabrics stand away from the body while others cling to the body.

    The climate of your area will have some influence as to which fabric will work for you. If you're getting married in a cold climate, then a heavy satin will work, however, if you're getting married in a warm weather climate you may be more comfortable in a lighter chiffon fabric.

    Other popular wedding fabrics include: silk, silk taffeta, silk charmeuse, tulle, cotton, crepe, brocade, gabardine, nylon, velvet and moiré.

    Figure Flattering Techniques for unique wedding dresses

    If you want to appear thinner choose a high waistline such as A Line or empire style. Use vertical trim details and avoid puffy sleeves, ruffles and tight fitting fabrics.

    For the petite bride who would like to appear a bit taller choose a high neckline, empire waist and a cap or sleeveless dress. Too much puff will overpower a small bride.

    A drop waist, or waistline adornments will aid the bride who wants to appear a bit shorter.

    Remember it's your day, choose a dress that you're comfortable wearing and makes you feel gorgeous.

    I do hope my unique wedding dresses tips help you to find your perfect dress.
