Non-wedding dresses for weddings

If you’re working with a shoestring budget and / or aren’t keen about wearing yards and yards of satin, organza or silk as you walk down the aisle, there are a ton of lovely wedding dress options out there. I’ve rounded up a couple for your perusal.

Rocker-chic dress This above-the-knee Cotton Eyelet Dress with Metal Detail by Theme┬ámay look radical as a wedding dress on its own but it is perfect for a beach wedding. It cleverly takes the boho look (courtesy of the eyelets) and adds a rocker edge with circular patterns of metal studs. The strategically positioned cut-out styling reveals sun-warmed shoulders as the keyhole neckline tastefully highlights cleavage. This dress, which ┬ácan also work well as a tunic after your wedding (how’s that for maximizing your budget?), is lined with a loose-weave fabric resembling cheesecloth to prevent show-through while ensuring that the feeling stays airy and light. Designed to hit at thigh.

This Jersey Maxi-Dress with Butterfly Embroidery by JWLA is long and breezy enough for a spring (or summer, since we are on maximizing mode) garden wedding. It is embroidered all over with delicate butterflies, creating a romantic, feminine effect. The flattering empire cut balances lush hips and a full bust as it highlights the waist.

The best thing about these dresses is that they are simple yet that are not overly fussy and, most importantly, can be re-used after the big day.

Tune in next time for more picks.

Both dresses are available at MyShape.
