Bridal Beauty Looks, Part III: The Daring Bride

The daring bride has no intentions of having a conventional wedding. She's a modern day woman who thinks outside the box and marches to her own tune. Think Sarah Jessica Parker (she wore black), Dita Von Teese or Alabama from True Romance! A daring bride is unlike the princess bride or the natural bride. Her goal is to have the kind of affair that will make her and her fiance happy, not to conform to the customs of tradition.

She may choose not to wear white, she might even skip out on a veil, bridesmaids and an assigned seated reception. The sky is the limit. Oftentimes I hear something like this from non-traditional brides: I'll do what I want, I'll have what I want and I'll wear what I want. This affair could even be a second wedding or something more spur of the moment.

Think twice about not wearing a veil- they look classic in pictures, even if it doesnt go over the face, a short one is a modern option... Also, i think infusing some color like a sash into traditional shades of white is fun and daring but there is only one day to be the bride(supposedly)..I almost wore a dress that had colorful beads all over the top b/c it was unique and cool but i gave in to 'the look' and I know I won't look back with regret...like SJP has expressed.

My sister is wearing a beyond adorable Short gown, it is pretty traditional otherwise- strapless ivory, somewhat poofy, but it stops at the knee! The wedding is next week, I will post a picture! It may raise a few oldie brows but we LOVE it!!

This is interesting, however that photo of Christina and her husband was at a costume party.

I wore a blue dress. I hated how white looked on me. Course we also got married on a sail boat so...

I guess I should mention it was a traditional style, but not color. I wore "vanilla" (darker than a typical bridal ivory silk satin), with a pale gold sash. My veil was rum pink tulle. I also wore metallic brocade Jimmy Choo Shoes and Judith Jack maracasite jewelry.

I wasn't going to wear a veil, but I'm so glad I did. My veil was gorgeous, and it's the only chance you'll ever have to wear one. My ensemble was very traditional, though.

I am also thinking of not having a veil. (And if I did I certainly wouldn't cover my face) Is it really that controversial?

I want to see Sarah Jessica in a black wedding dress!! I thought about doing that myself, and my cousin looked at me like I was wacko when I suggested it to her.

SJP actually came out and said she totally regrets wearing the black dress now.

omg I need to see pics of SJP in a black wedding dress! I knew she was fashion forward but I didn't think she'd be so daring
