Alternative Wedding Dresses, R29 Style!

Besides a loving mate and a healthy open bar, a beautiful dress is requisite to a great wedding. And whether you're getting hitched at a cathedral with all of the trimmings or at City Hall with just your gumption and two tickets to an evening movie, your wedding day is one moment when your outfit should definitely look as awesome as you feel. But please—think outside of the Bridal Box. Ditch the taffeta and tulle, and choose a dress you'll want to wear long after the big day. We've culled together some great white options to fit boho, minimalist, vintage, Grecian, and budget tastes. So stop penning those invitations and pay attention! We've got your new wedding dress below. If you are not the bride, check out these dresses to wear to a wedding.
