It takes a lot of guts to do something different to the norm.
Especially when it comes to your wedding attire. Having the perfect outfit that makes you feel like a million bucks, confident and happy is so important for your big day.
For many people they find the most beautiful traditional white gown, but for others that just isn’t their style. But not wearing a traditional gown for your wedding day doesn’t make you any less a bride (which is often a point of criticism would you believe).
Wearing what you love is so much more important. Whether it be a power suit, a cutaway dress, a two piece or something with a pop of colour. Different is equally as beautiful.
And so, we have decided to highlight the top nine celebrity wedding dresses that are different, unique and equally as WOW to the traditional gúna.
1. Jessica Biel
Jessica certainly turned heads when she arrived to her wedding in a dusty pink masterpiece by Giambattista Valli. Speaking to Elle she said: “I wanted the dress to be very romantic and feminine and a shape that I very rarely wear. I have never been crazy about all-white wedding dresses, for me at least.”
2. Amal Alamuddin
When human rights barrister Amal Alamuddin married her Oscar-winning fiancé George Clooney, all we could think was WOW. At their civil ceremony, Amal opted for a cream Stella McCarthy trouser suit and she looked impeccable.
3. Anne Hathaway
This Valentino creation is so beautiful and elegant, it is everything we expected from Anne. With a tinge of pink towards the end and a wrap-around headpiece and veil. It is different and chic but with traditional roots.
4. Dita Von Teese
One to never follow trends is Ms. Dita Von Teese. And rightly so, as she rocks her own style proud and loud. When it came to her wedding dress, this was no different. Dita opted for an original royal purple silk taffeta gown by quirky designer Vivienne Westwood.
6. Whitney Port
Always a trend setter, Whitney Port’s wedding dress was no different. This dress led to an array of cutaway wedding dresses appearing the following year and we can see why. It is BEAUTIFUL.
7. Poppy Delevinge
Renewing her vows in utter style. Sister to model, Cara Delevinge, Poppy looked all types of boho-chic in this Emilio Pucci wonder. We love it.
8. Dianna Agron
Known to many as Quinn Fabrey on Glee. When Dianna tied the knot to Mumford and Sons’ Winston Marshall, her nude Valentino creation was so divine, we can’t stop staring at it.
9. Keira Knightly
Like many celebs, actress Keira Knightly opted for Chanel to celebrate the big day in. However unlike many Chanel wedding dresses, this one was short, pink and not specially made. Since the wedding, the star has been seen wearing the wedding dress to many red carpet events making it not just gorgeous but practical too.
