Unconventional And Outrageous Wedding Dresses Perfect For Offbeat Brides

Pride yourself on marching to the beat of your own drum, and not conforming to societal norms? Then you probably wouldn’t want to get married in a wedding dress that’s generic or safe.

In this article, we’ve rounded up 8 unconventional and outrageous wedding dresses which are perfect for offbeat brides. Read on to find out more!

#1: The polka dot wedding dress


How adorable is this polka dot wedding dress? The dress is bold yet subtle at the same time, and the raised hem at the front is perfect for brides who want to show off your wedding heels.

Bonus: because the dress comes in an empire line cut, you’ll be a LOT more comfortable than if you wear to wear a mermaid dress that’s suffocatingly tight. This means you can actually dig into the food that’s served at your wedding… and even if you overeat and get a food baby, nobody will be able to tell! ;)


#2: The sequinned wedding dress


Yes, there are plenty of sequinned wedding dresses out there, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find one that’s as dramatic and unabashed as this one.

While this dress is more covered up than the standard wedding dress, it comes with a high side slit to keep things interesting. Curl your hair and pile on the red lipstick, and you’re ready for a rock ‘n roll wedding!

#3: The blazer-esque wedding dress


This blazer-esque wedding dress comes with flattering cape sleeves, a belt to cinch your waist, and a plunging V-neck. If you want to channel “sexy boss lady” with your wedding dress, this is definitely The One.



#4: The organza wedding dress


Looking for a show-stopper of a dress? We love this ethereal dress, which comes with a floaty organza skirt and a feathered bodice. That said, the dress is on the racy side — you might want to give grandma a heads-up, so she doesn’t get a mini heart attack when she sees you walking down the aisle.


#5: The sportswear-inspired wedding dress


This sportswear-inspired dress definitely isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but if you can pull off the look, then power to you.

On the bright side: the dress comes with the simplest, most manageable train we’ve ever seen, which means that your bridesmaids won’t have to break their back carrying and arranging your train whenever you take a few steps!


#6: The dress that’s outfitted with balloons


This dress reminds us of a meringue — it’s pink, frothy, and poofy. Adding to the drama is the

sheer veil that’s lifted up with confetti-filled helium balloons.

Can you imagine showing up at your wedding in this dress? You’ll be the talk of town for AGES.


#7: The caged wedding dress


Quick disclaimer: we’ve now officially crossed the line, and we’re firmly in “wacky” territory.

There’s so much going on with this dress — the caged net, the flowers, and the headpiece/crown — that we honestly don’t know where to look. If Maleficent were to fall in love and get married, this is what she’d wear on her wedding day.


#8: The wedding dress that’s like nothing we’ve seen before


There’s only one word to describe this wedding dress, and that’s: bizarre. The headpiece reminds us of Pirates Of The Caribbean. The crocheted wrap looks like something an elderly English lady would wear when she meets her friends for tea. The poofy skirt and cage underneath looks like… actually, we’ve never seen a contraption like this before, so nothing comes to mind.


Want to get married in an unconventional wedding dress?

A wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime event, so you should definitely choose a dress that reflects your personal sense of style.

If you’ve decided to take the plunge and purchase an unconventional wedding dress, consider buying your wedding dress second-hand to help defray your costs. If you realize that the wedding dress doesn’t fit your vision after all, or if you change your mind about what type of wedding dress you want, you won’t be out by that much, and you can still afford to get a second dress.
