Fun and Unusual Wedding Dresses

Although women today still want a romantic wedding with all of the bells and whistles, many brides would like at least one thing from their special day to stand out from the rest. A fun, quirky yet charming wedding gown is an easy way to incorporate your unique personality into your ceremony.

The 2012 wedding dress designs you will be seeing on the runways are very fashion forward, with a little bit of individuality for everyone. Yes, the classic ball gown style is still very much in, but now we just have a much larger array of options to choose from.

Whether you just want a splash of color, a large detail, an asymmetrical hemline, or really want to stray away from the beaten path, dress designers are making a wedding dress design for every personality.

I love the colors that are being incorporated into the new designs, whether you want your entire dress in a romantic rose, peach, or antique color, or just a splash of color on the sash, embroidery, or hemline. Many of the dresses I’ve seen have up to 75 different color options, making it a breeze to match your dress to your overall wedding color scheme.

Although black is traditionally though of as dark and drab, new designers are turning the color into an enchanting hue, and incorporating the color in many of the new dress designs.


Choosing one large, extravagant detail (like the one shown above) is a fun way to really make a statement, yet still have a classic romantic wedding gown. I also like the one shoulder look, giving your dress a bit of an offbeat look, but not so much to make it bizarre.

If you would like to bring out that sexy side, consider one of the new lingerie inspired bustiers, like the the two shown below. They are very romantic, especially for a quaint and chic wedding.


The grecian style gown is becoming more popular, giving the dresses a more graceful goddess feel. I particularly like the one shown above with the open arms and embellished waist.
