What makes a wedding dress "non-traditional"?

Lots of things! When people think of a traditional wedding dress, often what comes to mind are long sleeves, a ball gown or A-line silhouette and all-white fabric (and maybe some lace detailing if they’re feeling risqué). These non-traditional wedding dresses take cues from the classic designs but reinvigorates them with sexy silhouettes, unique bodices and unconventional beaded and lace detailing. A non-traditional wedding dress could feature thigh high slits, sheer lace sleeves or intricate keyhole backs - attributes that aren’t common on most wedding dresses. They also range in a wide variety of colors that aren’t the classic white - from champagne to even black in some cases. It’s not hard to keep it interesting with these non-traditional wedding dresses from Martin Thornburg.
