White w/ a Twist

Gown by Geof Gonzalez (Photo by Mango Red)
We understand that going completely anti-white can be a difficult decision for some--perhaps the pressure and the unsolicited comments from friends, relatives, and onlookers can be too much to handle or perhaps it's just plainly not your cup of tea. But don't fret! There are still a lot of ways to innovate and wear a rebellious gown which we'd like to call, "White w/ a Twist" -- it's simply an idea of wearing a traditional white gown but replacing the classic design, cut, bead work, or material into something a little bit more reflective of your personality. Extraordinary bead work on the upper part of the gown creates an illusion that it is more of a silvery gown rather than white. There are also other rebellious techniques that create an effect that the upper part of the gown is a different piece or a fabulous razorback tank top! Later on you will also see designs that have subtle colored bead work at the back or at the bottom, and of course, just like Rebellious Bride Mica, you'll see some gowns that have pops of color as accents.

Which one is your favorite? I love all of 'em but I'm quite partial to the last gown by Veluz which debuted in one of her fashion shows :) I'd love that in gray or powder blue! :)

  1. I super love all the gowns of Claire Pettibone--super romantic but modern. Her Rock n' Roll Bride collection (from 2009?) was especially sweet, yet still edgy. She's one of my favorite bridal gown designers but her shops are few and far between. http://clairepettibone.com/bridal/
