For bride Abbey Ramirez-Bodley, the traditional wedding dress was not an option for her special day. Today, Abbey and many like-minded brides seek out unique alternatives for wedding gowns to amaze their guests. For Abbey, it was a hand crocheted gown accented with a green underdress that was handmade by herself and her aunt - which got national attention. But for many other brides who are not as crafty, there are a variety of unique styles out there that fit any personality. For those blushing brides seeking individuality, here are some alternatives for you.

It’s not only the bride that’s suiting up! Jumpsuits are a great alternative to the frilly gown as they allow full comfort and are perfect for boogying on the dance floor.

Piecing two or more items of clothing together for your gown allows the ultimate range of individuality. For more formal occasions, a button-up suit in unique colors and prints will amaze. For the less formal and more party-oriented events, opt for a button-up paired with some snazzy suspenders.
