When most of us picture a wedding dress, a similar image probably pops into all of our minds: a voluminous skirt, lace, maybe some beading for a little touch of glamour, perhaps a bit of tulle. There is certainly a lot of variation between classic wedding dresses, but it all boils down to the same formula, the same elements presented in different ways. If you’re searching for something with more of a unique edge, it can seem hard to find exactly what you’re looking for.

Look no further! We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite dresses that break the bridal mold, making them the perfect choice for modern brides looking for something a bit outside of the box for their big day! All of these lush looks can be found on the Studio I Do website!

Blush By Hayley Paige #1862

This gorgeous, high-neck, sheath wedding dress features a sweet, all-over, beaded floral pattern that is subtle enough to imitate the daintiness of lace, but will also give you some major glamour points on your big day!

Casablanca #2341

We love the scattered sequins and beading that cascades down this flattering, fit-and-flare wedding dress. The asymmetrical, floral, lace appliques across the bodice, combined with the warm beige color of the dress, give the gown a distinctly beachy feel, perfect for a balmy summer wedding!

Stripes on stripes all day! We love the boldness of the striped pattern of the gown, combined with the billowing, ball gown skirt and cheeky leg slit. Not to mention, the off-the-shoulder neckline gives this wedding gown a dreamy, romantic vibe!

Allure Bridals #9555

This dress goes out to all of our bold, boho brides out there! The lace on this bodice has such a relaxed vibe, and feels summery and whimsical when paired with the tulle skirt. Plus, the skirt’s lace embellishments add so much feminine detail to the gown- we love it!

Allure Wilderly Bride #F131 Zoey

An alternating pattern of latticed lacework and fun, jagged zig-zags give this fitted wedding dress a textured, modern look. We also love this off-the-shoulder neckline- such a flattering look!

Allure Modest #M604

Modest definitely doesn’t mean un-cool! The oversized pattern on this lace beauty is definitely unique and edgy, and, paired with the keyhole back and capped sleeves, create a modern, yet tasteful and classy ensemble.

Maggie Sottero #Claudia (8MC657)

We adore the minimalist bridal trend that has emerged in the wake of the most recent royal wedding, so this chic and simple fit-and-flare definitely piqued our interest! The cold shoulder sleeves are definitely in style and make this dress a minimalist, yet trendy and eye-catching choice! Plus, you can add as many accessories as you want, without having to worry about clashing with your gown!

Allure Wilderly Bride #S-F109

We adore the adorable, lace mini-sleeves on this bohemian wedding gown! It’s just so dainty and girly and pairs perfectly with the translucent lace of the bodice, sides and back. Plus that flowy, lace and English net skirt is to die for!
