Modern Wedding Dresses

Traditional with a Twist is Easy

Wedding dresses and brides have come a long way since the 1800s – thank heavens! Not only were the wedding dresses quite impractical and uncomfortable way back then, but some styles were plain ugly, doing absolutely nothing for the beautiful figures hidden beneath.

Today, many brides still love the allure of the traditional, opting to incorporate it into every aspect of their wedding day. The “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue” tradition is a beautiful sentiment, and brides who treasure this search for the same endearing qualities in their wedding gown.

Even if you are a stickler for tradition (or perhaps you’re trying to appease your mom or grandmother), subtly modernising a very traditional wedding dress is a wonderful way to put your own twist on the design, and ultimately create a look which is totally unique.

Every bride wants to be unique and stand out on her wedding day, so why fade into the background as a wallflower in a traditional dress when you can be a timeless, modern bride?

With the right guidance from a professional consultant at a reputable bridal boutique, you can explore many simple ways to transform your wedding dress from plain to spectacular!

Let’s start with “something old”. No, we’re not talking about wearing your great grandmother’s wedding dress! Think lace, satin, charmeuse, chiffon, tulle, and organza. These are all beautiful traditional fabrics which designers still love and use to modernise old-style wedding dresses. Imagine yourself in our Tamela dress. This awe-inspiring wedding dress has a low back that flows out in a dramatic lace train and creates a stunning lace and sheath styled dress. Worn with simple, understated accessories, a loose, flowing hairstyle, and gorgeous shoes will make for a breathtaking modern bridal look.

Then think “something new”. Hair accessories, like combs, hair pieces, and pins, are an easy way to let your personality sparkle. Timeless Bridal Couture stocks a wide range of rose gold accessories, veils and belts, and can also custom-make accessories. There are incredibly beautiful veils to choose from and you can use a veil to modernise your look.

When it comes to “something borrowed”, make sure that you’re borrowing the best possible advice you can get from your bridal consultant on how to give your traditional dress a modern twist. Bridal consultants love to experiment, so be open minded and let their expertise guide you.

Regarding “something blue”, you’ll be pleased to know, that this a huge trend in wedding dresses today. Brides are using splashes of colour, often bright blues and yellows, to put their personal stamp on their wedding dress. It’s a playful, creative way to add an element of surprise to a traditional dress.
