8 Edgy Dresses for the Cool Bride

Exquisite styles for fashion forward brides


Not all brides are looking for the classic gown, but instead an edgier wedding dress that makes them feel fabulous on their wedding day.

In the same way that wedding venues have evolved from the traditional hotel and marquee to quirky barns and wigwam inspired tents, designers have been getting more and more adventurous with their bridal gowns, recognising a need for fashion conscious brides who want dresses that look as cool and edgy as their reception venues.

Indeed Jenny Packham has always been recognised for her stylish gowns and hasn’t disappointed brides in 2017 with her current collection which centres around the story of a mid-western bride who is more interested in having a good time than worrying about her hair or make-up sitting to perfection!

While we love all of the dresses in this collection we’ve picked Jolene with its beautiful beaded star detailing and Edie with its billowing sleeve detail which is perfect for brides looking for a more laid back, bohemian style.

For the bohemian bride who oozes glamour then this dress from Berta Bridal is absolutely stunning. With it boned corset detailing and fishtail skirting it is more of a traditional style, but then the drop sleeve detailing softens the whole thing.

Temperley Bridal is epitomised by ethereal, timeless silhouettes and will appeal to the vintage bride looking for a dresses inspired by the romance and decadence of a bygone era. With necklines at an all-time high, the Victoriana styling of Rowena is definitely on-trend.

Another pretty alternative for brides looking for something that little bit with a vintage vibe is the Elvis dress from Rembo Styling or for those on the cutting edge of fashion, the Middlemist jumpsuit from Sanyukta Shrestha is the perfect choice.
