🪩 Traditional Wedding Dresses with a Twist 🪩

So you are wanting a bit of a traditional look to your wedding dress, but want a modern twist…

Look no further, 130 Atelier dresses are bound to hit the spot for you bridey!

I always want to help my brides as much as possible, there are many ways how to up level your Bridal look, incorporate modern elements, unique fabrics, or unconventional designs while maintaining some traditional aspects.

Here are some ideas for traditional wedding dresses with a modern twist:

1. Colour: Instead of the traditional white or ivory, opt for a colored dress like blush, champagne, or even a bold colour like red or black.

2. Cut-Outs: Introduce tasteful cut-outs or sheer panels to add a contemporary edge to a classic silhouette.

3. High-Low Hem: Combine a traditional full-length gown with a high-low hemline to add a playful and modern touch. Keep in mind - a full length gown can be altered to be a high low dress too!

4. Non-Traditional Fabric: Choose a dress made from a non-traditional fabric like velvet, sequins, or even leather for a unique look.

5. Jumpsuit or Pantsuit: Swap the traditional dress for a chic jumpsuit or pantsuit for a modern and fashionable bridal look.

6. Cape or Capelet: Instead of a veil, opt for a stylish cape or capelet to add drama and sophistication to your bridal ensemble.

7. Mismatched Separates: Mix and match a bridal skirt and top in complementary fabrics and styles for a contemporary bridal look.

8. Bold Patterns: Choose a dress with a bold and modern pattern like floral, geometric, or abstract designs.

9. Convertible Dress: Select a dress with a removable skirt or overlay, allowing you to switch up your look from ceremony to reception.

10. Statement Sleeves: Incorporate dramatic or unique sleeves like bell sleeves, bishop sleeves, or puffed sleeves to add a fashionable twist to a classic gown.

Remember, the most important thing is to choose a wedding dress that makes you feel confident, beautiful, and true to your personal style, whether that’s a traditional gown with a subtle twist or a completely unconventional bridal look.
