Here comes the bride.
Whether you’re eloping with just your partner, or are hosting a large venue with 200 of your closest friends and family, your wedding look needs to represent you. Sometimes, a plain white dress just can’t take on the magnitude of that role. Alternative wedding dresses are the perfect way to bring your personality into your bridal look, and help yours to stand out from every other wedding that you’ll attend.
Alternative wedding dresses are also affordable wedding dresses. When they don’t come from a bridal store, they can be priced far more fairly. This means that you might find your dream dress with us at 5% of the price of dresses you’ve been trying in your nearest boutique!
Here at Nasty Gal, we are huge fans of unique wedding dresses, from classic silhouettes and bright whites to colorful wedding dresses, short wedding dresses, whimsical wedding dresses, bridal jumpsuits, and more. We will always advocate for you showing your personal style and edge no matter the occasion – and what better occasion than your biggest day? Be you, and don’t let tradition (or your MIL’s opinions!) affect your style or your decisions.
Short Wedding Dresses
Let your legs out.
Short wedding dresses are perfect for adding playful and flirty vibes back into your wedding day. With features like beads, fringe, feathers, and lace, our mini wedding dresses do not skimp on detail, ensuring that everyone around you knows this is a bridal look.
Our top picks are the tassel and bead V neck dress, and the fringed blazer dress.
The tassel and bead mini dress is super bridal, beachy, and party-ready. The details will turn heads, and the tassels create enchanting movement as you dance the night away. It’s not super formal, so is perfect for the more laid back bride who doesn’t need the dramatics of a traditional wedding look.
The satin blazer dress, however, is a little more formal for a short wedding dress. The fringe accent brings the fun, while the blazer style maintains a level of formality that is perfect for days that are all about you.
Sparkly Wedding Dresses
Diamantes, and beads, and sequins, oh my!
You’re the center of attention, so it’s time to sparkle. With dresses that use beads, sequins, and diamantes, you’ll be catching the light as you mingle with guests and cut some shapes on the dancefloor.
Whether you’re looking for an all-over sparkle, or just a hint of glimmer, we’ve got you covered. If your dream dress is entirely beaded, consider our sequin halter neck dress. With sexy cut outs, a flattering halter neckline, and entirely covered in sparkling sequins, you’ll be hard pressed to find a dress with more glamor.
However, if you just want a pop of sparkle, our fave has to be the jacquard dress with diamante strap features. With a sexy backless design which flaunts the sparkling diamante details, a stellar fit and flare silhouette, and a ruched bust, this dress screams bride, and whispers glam. For the bride who wants a hint of something a little different.
Floral Wedding Dresses
If a plain white dress is just not enough for you, we get it. Floral dresses are a great way to bring a pop of color to your wedding day, while flaunting your personality and leaving a strong personal touch on your big day.
From metallics, to blues, to multicolored floral accents, floral dresses are perfect for the non-traditional bride. Our top pick is the angel sleeve maxi dress, with metallic flower details, and a stellar backless design. It is still an unmistakably bridal dress, with a twist on the traditional.
Colored Wedding Dresses
Here comes the bride, all dressed in… pink? Green? Peach? Purple?
Who says you have to stick to tradition?
A colored wedding dress is the perfect way to add a unique, personal touch to your look.
Let’s face it: white washes most people out. By wearing a color that you don’t just love, but also complements your skin tone, you’re ensuring flawless photos and a statement look that no one else will wear. Our top pick is the satin leaf cut out maxi dress, as the fitted silhouette is ultra flattering, while the statement skirt and embellishments bring the drama and party vibes. It is still a bridal dress, just with a twist.
Sexy Wedding Dresses
Sheer panels, plunging necklines, mini lengths. Your wedding dress does not need to cover you up. You’re getting married, so show off a little!
Wedding dresses are designed in a huge spectrum of styles, and the sexy brides should never be overlooked. Flaunt your figure in our top pick: the fishtail dress. With a silhouette that clings to your figure, a plunging neckline, and flirty sheer panels, this dress is as bridal as it gets while maintaining a super sexy silhouette. Pair it with platform Mary Jane heels, a short veil, and statement sunglasses for the ultimate “best day ever” vibes.
Casual Wedding Dresses
Effortless glamor for the laid back bride.
Are you wanting a bridal look, without the restrictions of corsets, sleeves, layered skirts, and tight silhouettes? We get it. It’s your big day, and you want to be relaxed, and able to move and dance the night away without being held back by your gown. With relaxed silhouettes, flattering shapes, and perfect draping, casual wedding dresses are anything but underwhelming.
Consider the hammered satin cowl neck dress. The neckline is ultra flattering, and the thigh high leg split and backless design bring unmistakable drama. Perfect for the minimal bride, the relaxed bride, and the “less is more” bride.
Make a statement.
A complete departure from wedding dresses, bridal jumpsuits are a personal fave of ours, for their formal designs and their unique cuts.
Our fave is the wide leg jumpsuit, as the silhouette is ultra flattering, with a cinched waist and dramatically wide legs. The cowl neckline is comfortable and sexy, and the strappy back is the perfect finishing touch. Pair it with chunky heels and a playful, short veil for a wedding look that reflects your lighthearted joy and effortless style.
On your big day, you should wear something that feels right to you. Don’t fall into tradition just because you are being told you should. If a pink dress, a short dress, or even a jumpsuit is speaking to you more than a gown, go with your gut!
Grab a pair of white heels and a veil, and get ready to party the night away.
