Our Favorite Unique Wedding Dresses
1. Bexley Wedding Gown
This dream dress is the perfect combination of feminine romance and modern style!
The cascading ruffles are really fun and flirty, but when looking at the dress in its entirety you can see that the ruffles are arranged in many different orientations. This adds a really fashion-forward and daring edge that makes this a truly unique find!
And if you think the front of the dress is beautiful, wait until you see the back! The ruffles create a cloud-like train that is simply breathtaking!
2. Cami & Skirt
Two-piece wedding dresses, while starting to make their way into the wider public’s consciousness, are still considered a very daring choice.
This dress, however, will shut down even the loudest of critics, creating a comfortable and bohemian yet still fully sophisticated look that will turn the heads of every one of your guests. The beautifully detailed skirt makes this look fit for the wedding of the century, while the sweet cami top gives it a feminine and trendy boho-chic feel!
3. Black Wedding Dress
The perfect dress for the bride who is looking to turn nuptial traditions on their head, this jaw-dropping design by Joyce will leave your guests reeling! Inspired by vintage art-deco design, this black beauty is covered with intricate sequins and lace, creating a truly unique visual experience.
The form-fitting cut is sure to hug all of the right curves and the round court train will make every entrance and exit as dramatic as you could ever imagine! The dress also comes with a versatile cape that can be draped over the shoulders or tied around the waist for a dramatic, flowing skirt. This pick is a real show stopper!
4. Ruffled Empire Waist Gown
Talk about daring! This dream of a dress perfectly balances its free-flowing, lightweight, and ruffled material with a sharp and audacious deep v-neckline. This juxtaposition perfectly encapsulates today’s modern woman and is perfect for the bride who wants to give a nod to the traditions that have come before her while walking right toward her own ambitions and one-of-a-kind style.
Dress it up with some bold jewelry or dress it down with some ballerina flats or sandals. However you style it, this dress is sure to be perfect for your big day!
5. Puffed Sleeves Wedding Dress
We love this dress because it looks just as comfortable as it does regal! The lightweight and breathable fabric will keep you cool during even the hottest summer day while the puff sleeves add just enough drama to make you feel like the true belle of the ball.
The bodice, while subtle, is also structured beautifully and will accentuate your curves just perfectly, making it just the right fit for any bohemian bride!
6. Short Beaded Fringe Dress
This 1920’s inspired beaded fringe dress is perfect for the bride who wants to wear a short dress without having to sacrifice glitz and glamour!
If you’re having a small, more intimate ceremony, you can pair this dress with simple shoes, delicate jewelry, and a neutral makeup look to bring this dramatic dress down to Earth. If you’re having a larger event, you can dress this up to the nines. Add a dramatic shoe, a sparkling necklace, and a bright red lip and you’ll look like a true movie star ready for her big debut!
7. Bohemian Lace Wedding Dress
A mermaid silhouette is a go-to choice for any bride who is going for a glamorous and dramatic look on their big day. But this design by Etsy seller WearYourLoveXO takes the drama to a whole other level by adding totally unique and highly detailed lace patterns throughout the entirety of the dress.
To top it all off, this pick has an off-the-shoulder neckline to die for and a gorgeous full train that will make your walk down the aisle look more sophisticated than you could have even imagined!
8. Two-Piece Tea Length Wedding Gown
With clean lines throughout paired with just a hint of romantic ruffles at the bottom of the skirt, the tea length of this two-piece wedding gown is certainly appealing for warmer weather!
This is the perfect wedding dress for the bride who wants something elegant and sophisticated without having to deal with all of the tulle, sequence, and corsets often associated with a traditional bridal gown. Breathtaking in its simplicity, this dress will turn heads for all of the right reasons!
9. Unique Bridal Jumpsuit
This bridal jumpsuit by Roland Mouret is perfect for the trailblazing bride! We can easily picture power-house lawyer Jessica Pearson from the TV show Suits walking down the aisle in this number…right after landing her next million-dollar client, of course.
The jumpsuit style alone is enough to make this a truly unique find – but that asymmetrical neckline? That is what makes this unique wedding piece truly one-of-a-kind!
10. Structured Dress with Cape
While the basic structure of this dress seems fairly traditional, the smaller details make this a special piece!
First, the lace detailing, strategic boning, and beautifully cut haltered bodice make this a dress fit for a princess. But the pièce de resistance of this dress makes it fit for a queen. The sheer lace, floor-length cape made for this dress takes it from another beautiful wedding dress to an absolutely stunning one!
11. Asymmetrical Neckline Gown
Looking for a bridal gown unlike any other? Made especially for the bride who wants all eyes on her, this fun, flirty option from Revolve is sure to have your wedding guests doing a double take!
The high-slit, cascading ruffled skirt, a-symmetrical neckline, bare-midriff, and single sleeve all make for a wedding dress that you have never laid eyes on before. Far from traditional, this dress will make you not only the bride but the life of the party!
12. Three-Piece Wedding Ensemble
The picture of high-fashion and 21st-century chic, this three-piece wedding dress takes all of the best parts of the dresses on this list to create a fashionista’s dream. The high collared lace bodice gives it a touch of vintage bridal style, while the pantsuit and paired crepe detachable skirt are bound to be tomorrow’s trend.
Our favorite feature of this dress is how easily it transforms from ceremony to reception. Wear a veil and the crepe skirt while you walk down the aisle and then trade them for comfy shoes before you hit the dance floor! It’s entirely unique and truly the best of both worlds!
A Dream Wedding Dress Just for You
Not every bride envisions themselves wearing a simple white A-line wedding dress for their walk down the aisle. On your big day, you’ll definitely want to make sure you opt for an outfit that feels perfectly you. And that might mean looking for some unique options!
Whether that means a stunning black gown or a totally different approach like a pantsuit, we hope you are able to find something that will turn heads and make you feel like the blushing bride you are!
