Calling All Alt-Brides: 10 Wedding Looks You Need To See

Today's bride doesn't want a look that mimics all the rest. It's not that she's purposefully eschewing tradition; it's simply that she's outgrown the tried-and-true column dresses and conventional ball gowns of years past. Overall, we're noticing bridal looks that are less uniform and more alternative.

By alternative, we mean crop tops, miniskirts, jumpsuits, shirt dresses, and similarly edgy silhouettes that are all fair game for brides this season. Likely inspired, in part, by Olivia Palermo's big-day look (which consisted of a cashmere sweater and a full, tulle skirt layered over white, crepe shorts) the trend is gaining popularity with designers — like Reem Arca, Yigal Azrouel, Ivy & Aster, and Jonathan Simkhai, to name a few.

Ahead, we're saying a big "hello" to 10 alternative wedding looks you'll want to wear (even if you're not getting hitched).
