The unconventional bride doesn’t always want what everyone else does. In fact, they might be after something a little, well, cooler. Something that’ll make their guests go ‘where did you get that’ and be seriously impressed at the answer. Well, if that sounds like you, the below brands are worth a look. Some are under-the-radar, even for the bridal world, and others are fashion labels that just so happen to be doing the best wedding dresses. Either way, you’ll be sure to impress when walking down that aisle.
Before starting her own label, Danielle Frankel counted Vera Wang as a past employer. Taking that same understated ethos to her own designs, Frankel makes gowns that are effortless and inherently beautiful.
