    You're not planning on reciting Corinthians, and you couldn't imagine doing anything that remotely resembles a garter toss. As for that princess-inspired, cupcake-shaped dress? It's boring, not to mention kind of cliché. Fortunately, there are endless ways to get wonderfully weird with your nuptial look, so you can create an ensemble that's much more personal.

    Just like you, the brides-to-be we know are not in search of a wedding-day look that mimics all the rest. The alt-bride is the kind of lady who cherishes traditions but is far from traditional; she wants to feel like a million bucks on her big day — but more importantly, she wants to feel like herself. With this bride in mind, we've compiled 15 masterful style moves that are anything but overplayed.

    Instead of conventional fluffy dresses, the looks ahead provide sleek, modern silhouettes, retro-inspired pantsuits, and plenty of reasons to consider not wearing white — or any solid color, for that matter. Anti-princess brides, prepare to fall in love all over again.
