Shopping for a wedding dress is no easy task. There are racks upon racks of white dresses that you swear all look exactly the same. On your big day you want to stand out and that requires a dress to remember. If you’re looking for a more unique look, check out some great non-traditional wedding dresses from David’s Bridal.


Pink has been the color of choice for brides looking for something different from the traditional white. Celebrities from Sharon Stone to Reese Witherspoon embraced this trend at their weddings. Designers have taken note as well, this blush colored dress is one of two pink dresses that Vera Wang included in her latest White Collection at David’s Bridal.


If a pink dress is too much for you, prints are another great way to stand out. This organza dress is perfect for a spring or summer wedding with its subtle floral print.


Many brides are forgoing the traditional long gown and opting for a shorter dress. This short satin-faced organza dress with tulle overlay would be perfect for a destination or beach wedding. If this dress is too short for your liking there are a lot of great tea-length styles that would also be perfect.

Two in One

Want the best of both worlds? This two-in-one sweetheart dress is ideal. We’ve seen a growing trend of brides purchasing two dresses, one for the wedding, and a second dress for the reception. Keeping with the traditional, you have a long dress for the ceremony. Then, once you remove the skirt, you are left with a short dress with a bubble hem skirt that is perfect to dance the night away in. Your guests probably won’t even realize it’s the same dress and you can’t beat getting two dresses for the price of one!

Which of these non-conventional trends is your favorite? Or would you prefer to go the traditional route?
