Best of Bridal Spring 2018: non-dresses

c-Viktor and Rolf bridal spring 2018- white bridal jumpsuit with asymmetrical bow sash at shoulderSecond only to Haute Couture, the bridal collections are my favourite fashion shows in the fashion calendar. I love the romanticism and dreaminess of the creations, but before I head down the Disney princess path, I’ve chosen to write this post about the non-traditional wedding attire presented amongst the traditional gowns. I think the bridal collections are a showcase of the best and truest sentiments of the fashion world, and lately designers have been getting better and better at offering alternative options.

An ode to the idealistic fairytale of happily-ever-after, despite the fact that given the time we live in this ideal is drawn further away from our grasp, bridal collections are like an escape to a world where pretty things make us feel better about our lives and we are momentarily transported to a place where problems don’t exist.

I do love the array of exquisite gowns presented each season, but this time around I became captivated by the beautiful non-dress options. The scope of wedding attire has definitely widened lately, with brides now able to chose a look that works for them rather than filling a stereotype. This is not a new idea – there have always been women who oppose the traditional, and I really enjoy this fact.

Here I’ve chosen my top 5 non-traditional bridal looks from the Spring 2018 Bridal shows. Below these I have also included some other bridal ensembles that I thought were pretty great too.
