Wedding Dress Alternatives: To Gown or Not to Gown?

Your wedding is the perfect place to celebrate your personal style, and the dress is no exception. Some brides envision walking to their beloved in a ball gown so fluffy it could stand on its own. And that’s awesome! We aren’t about to tell you that we don’t drool over billowing clouds of tulle and white lace trains that just don’t quit. But for other brides, the perfect dress might be pink or even black! Or maybe they don’t want to wear a dress at all. Check out how these gorgeous brides styled their own wedding dress alternatives below. And remember, the only thing that matters is that you wear something that makes you feel incredible. It’s your day!
