It is easy to understand why the current trend is towards more laidback weddings. For one, traditional weddings are ridiculously expensive, and many young couples prefer to save their pennies for the honeymoon, a house or a trip around the world.
This new casual style of wedding calls for a totally different dress than your standard princess ball gown, and ready to wear designers are stepping up to the plate. These understated dresses are perfect for a modern day wedding – and are easy on your wallet too.
Now that you’ve found your dream dress (and have a few extra dollars to spare!) make sure you choose the right accessories. We love whimsical flower crowns and touches of blue to keep with tradition.
Shoes are the absolute make or break to any outfit and your wedding day is no different. Steer clear of the traditional embellished pumps and opt for dainty stilettos for a city wedding or strappy flats for a beach affair.
