Bridal Look Ideas For the Non-Traditional Bride

It goes without saying that weddings are a very personal event for each couple. Whether you’re planning a grand destination wedding with all your family and friends, or simply heading down to the courthouse – your wedding reflects your style and values as a couple. When it comes to wedding traditions, there’s a range of what couples prefer. Mackenzie and I had a relatively traditional wedding – I wore a white gown, we didn’t see each other the night before the wedding, and we exchanged Church of England vows. We got married in a historical chapel, dating back to the 15th Century, in the village of Eton, England, so we really enjoyed embracing these rituals. But today, many couples forego certain traditions – taking photos before the ceremony, writing (or singing!) their own vows, and playing up their bridal looks.

Think Olivia Palermo, who wore a chic sweater paired with shorts and a tulle skirt. Or Bianca Jagger, who wore a skirt suit and glamorous, wide-brim hat when she married Mick. I’ve been seeing more and more brides embrace wedding looks that aren’t your typical white gown, so today I wanted to share some of my favorite ideas for the non-traditional bride!

Two-Piece Wonders

Who said brides can only wear dresses? Well, believe it or not, mixing and matching is definitely allowed. Whether it’s a statement top paired with a tulle or flowy skirt, all eyes will all be on you. My personal favorite is definitely the silk cami with the matching skirt.


 

Neutral Hues

If you’d like to stick to more traditional style, then maybe just change it up by going for a pretty blush, nude, or even dove grey. My one styling tip is to go for a silhouette that’s a little different than the others, such as some head-turning embroidery, a cape, or an off-the-shoulder look.


 

Go Bold or Go Home

If you’d like to opt for something really out of the box, a bright wedding gown should do the trick. I’m always for a very alluring red, a subtle blue, or if you’re feeling really daring, yellow is something that will definitely stand out. Better yet, go for a totally unexpected print!


 

Follow Suit

If you want to follow in Emily Ratajkowski’s footsteps and really step outside of the box, go for a chic pantsuit – whether in ivory (or a bold color). They’re elegant and timeless, and you’ll be super comfy while you dance the night away.

    Hi, you look absolutely amazing in the black dress. Black has always been a favorite color for the women. Bridal outfits should be chosen carefully and with patience.

  • Shout out to my husband for looking super hot on our parent’s night out tonight. See what I mean ( 👖 🍑) on my stories... @wrangler #wranglerbuttsdrivemenuts #ad
  • Having a daughter of my own has made me realize more than ever how important it is to teach our children about female empowerment. One way I love educating Honor about girl power is through storytelling. I have discovered some truly empowering and uplifting books with examples of brilliant trailblazing women in history or fictional stories about independent and courageous girls who carve out their own paths in life. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites on #FrontRoe that I have read to Honor or gifted to special young ladies in my life! Link in bio. http://liketk.it/2F1Zr #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • Do you remember how short my hair was when I first started using @BondiBoost Hair Growth range a few months ago!? Wow has it grown and thickened up fast! I took it with me to England and had to hide it in Honor’s suitcase when we flew home so Mum wouldn’t steal it, LOL. If you’re looking to grow your hair I highly recommend trying this Aussie made, cruelty-free haircare brand. #BoostYourRoots #BondiBoost #Sponsored
  • The night before moving to LA over ten years ago, I watched Pretty Woman for the millionth time, to get me in the mood (not because I wanted to be a prozzie, but rather because I couldn’t wait to strut down Rodeo Drive 🛍) and ten years later, the street is still just as magical 💫 🌴
  • Onto the next adventure my ♥️!!
  • Today was exhausting, emotional and surreal... I’m too shattered to write a long caption - my eyes are closing - but see my stories for a house update, more from me tomorrow! ✌🏻 🏡 😢
  • #ad Long distance traveling really takes a toll on my skin and this summer has seen a lot of long-haul flying. @Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting cream and @Olay Regenerist Whip have really been the only staples in my bag and I combine the two to keep my face happy. See my stories for a link to get your hands on one #Olay #RedJar #FaceAnything
  • When Thursday afternoon really felt like Friday afternoon today 😍🍾What a beautiful party sipping on James Bond’s favorite bubbly! Thank you @champagne_bollinger #bollingerpartner
  • We have some big news! 
After a decade living in LA, we are going to be spending more time in London. We want Honor to be closer to family, to friends back home, and to the English countryside. We aren’t turning our backs on America (we’ll be splitting our time!) But over the coming months, Mackenzie and I will be house-hunting in England, traveling around Europe and sharing every moment with you guys. 
I’m feeling super emotional writing this. What a big change. I will be forever grateful to the experiences, friendships, jobs and sunshine Los Angeles has given me, but it’s time for a new family chapter. 
Now where should we visit on our new European adventure?? As always, thank you guys for your constant ♥️ and support!
