15 Non-Traditional Wedding Dresses That Are So Much Prettier Than Ball Gowns
Up until age 16, I was obsessed with Cinderella's wedding gown. It had everything: puffy sleeves, cinched-in waist and a glittery, puffy skirt.
Then, I realized the dress -- though the movie came out in the '50s -- reminded me of Princess Diana's giant '80s behemoth of a wedding gown and I changed my mind.
Personally, I'd never choose a big, extravagant dress for my big day. Those things are heavy and take an army to put on. I don't want to have to pee, only to spend 20 minutes in the bathroom with three bridesmaids trying to figure out how to strap me back in.
Brides nowadays want their wedding to be, well, not like their mother's lavish affair.
Frequently, I attend weddings where brides have traded large princess gowns for sweet bohemian sheath dresses featuring lots of lace and embroidery. They're not only beautiful and romantic, but also trendy.
So scroll on, my non-traditional brides. You don't have to opt for a ball gown to look like a modern day Cinderella.
