There are plenty of gorgeous gowns and accessories designed especially for the non traditional bride. Feeling blue at your wedding couldn’t be further from the truth with our Get The Look guide to looking fantastic. Why else would some clever spark have made up that rhyme… something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue… ?
Dress ‘Gracie’ from Special Day Weddings £399.99
The dress on the left is a one piece gown with a stiff chiffon underskirt and a satin apron style overlay. The corset is strapless and embroidered. It is definately designed to take centre stage so keep the rest of your accessories simple.
With this kind of dress, hair should be swept into a loose up-do and could be secured with flower hair pins, £6.99 for four from Next. Crystal looks great next to blue and so we quite liked this Amanda Wyatt crystal tiara too (both left).
Finding any kind of blue footwear is near impossible so we recommend finding a stylish pair of heels and having them dyed to match the dress. Girls of Elegance have a Try before you Dye service for £30 so you can check out the fit and style before you have the shoes colour matched to your swatch. This pair would look gorgeous blue £44.96
Keep flowers simple – go all white with a rose posy or add in a touch of colour with a mixed blue and white tulip bouquet. Blu eor white roses would make great button holes for the groom and attendants.
