Unique Wedding Dress Trends For The Modern Bride

If you want a truly unique wedding gown, you're in luck. Modern trends in bridal fashion allow you to be as daring or demure as you like. Consider these unique and beautiful trends for the modern bride that you may want to incorporate into your own custom design.


If white or ivory isn't your thing, then add some color to your wedding dress. Popping up in runways all over the world are lovely hues that turn heads and make brides stand out in whole new ways. You can go with a dusty rose or soft orange sherbet hue for a ballgown or tea party wedding dress that dazzles, or a deep red for a satin mermaid wedding dress that will demand the attention of everyone in the crowd. For a Victorian style with bows and layers of satin, deep plum or soft baby blue are wedding dress hues that make you look simply amazing on your big day.

Not ready for a full-on colorful wedding dress but still want the va-va-voom appeal of your favorite hue? Consider a colored sash or accompanying veil adorned with colorful feathers and jewels to make your classic-colored gown even more unique and amazing.


Many brides want a more sexy look on their wedding day, and choose sheer materials to make their dresses more alluring. These trends are popping up on bridal fashion runways, and show no sign of fading:

  • sheer corseted tops
  • transparent lace over midsections
  • low backs with sheer organza or lace overlay
  • completely sheer gowns with bralette tops

Your custom dress designer can make your own wedding dress more sheer by using lace in the sleeves, corset, back, or neckline. If you aren't ready to go all-sheer, you can choose to layer lace over a thin lining to give the illusion of a sheer gown.


Brides often want to feel feminine and youthful on their wedding day, and don't want to be bogged down by a heavy or lengthy dress. If this is how you feel, go short! Dresses in modern styles can be as short as above the knee for a cocktail party appeal, or calf length for that perfect beach or outdoor summer ceremony. Your dress designer can modify your long dress to any length you'd like for that fun and flirty appeal your dress is lacking.

On your wedding day, you want to look and feel amazing. Choose a unique and modern dress trend for your gown (available at shops like Allisha Wedding), or incorporate color, sheer material, or a modified length to your current dress to make it perfectly you on your big day.
