Stylish, unique wedding dresses for modern brides in Singapore, inspired by Hilary Duff, Zoe Kravitz, and other celebrities
Something odd, something new
Wedding dresses were, for a long time, much more interesting than the all-white archetype it's fallen into. We've got Queen Victoria's trendsetting wedding in 1840 to thank for that, but that's literally almost two centuries ago. There's a case to be made for more unconventional bridal dress choices that are more in line with the tastes and needs of women today.
The biggest misconception to get over is basically the one-wear sanctity of the all-white wedding dress. Toss that idea! Think of it instead as, basically, a fancy outfit that you can dress up for the occasion and repurpose for a continuous life in your wardrobe. There are many upsides to that train of thought. The first: it will be undeniably more comfortable to wear a style you're already familiar with, instead of trying to squeeze into frothy bridal cliches. The second: it's more environmentally responsible to have a dress you can wear repeatedly. The third: it gives you a conscionable reason to shop and splurge a little.
Colour is, obviously, the first point of departure from tradition. Many modern weddings are less stuffy and lean on the side of a party and gathering — so there's good reason to choose a vibrant and bright shade that leans into that celebratory mood. Don't be afraid of an abbreviated hem either. A minidress can be very chic when styled tastefully, and takes you straight from the altar to the reception — and then the dance floor after, if you're so inclined.
