Wedding season is here for the northern hemisphere, and with more couples than ever defying conventional dressing themes, the time is ripe to think outside the box for your big day with unique and non-traditional wedding outfits you can keep wearing long after the dancing is done.
Non-traditional wedding outfits by better brands
Ah, weddings, a timeless tradition to celebrate the union of two people that we love to love. But what is often the best day of many couples’ lives can also be a major source of stress, especially when it comes to what to wear. And while many people still opt for the traditional white dress or suit and tie for their big day, others are branching out and going for unique wedding outfits that not only stand out in a sea of stifling puffy white layers, but serve to reduce the environmental impact of your wedding, too.
The wedding industry is a major waste producer, and although most people will hold onto their wedding outfit after the fact, they are often produced using unsustainable fabrics and cutting techniques, which means a lot of waste for one wear. There are a few ways to reduce the impact of your wedding outfit, like considering renting or finding vintage or second hand options, but if you must buy new, go for a responsible brand making more sustainable wedding clothes. Or better yet, buy something you know you’ll use again and again.
By choosing a non-traditional wedding outfit like a silky two-piece, flattering jumpsuit, or more casual floor-length dress, rewearing becomes much simpler—and you’ll be able to relive the joy of your special day every time you don the look.
Our editors have curated unique wedding outfits by better brands just for you. But before we jump in, here’s why you can trust our recommendations.
