Back in the day, you could say weddings were more of a traditional affair, with one big dress and a rather formal dinner with your nearest and dearest. Now, the idea of how, when and where nuptials should take place is much more fluid. Modern weddings can last anywhere from a couple of hours at the town hall to week-long far-off escapades—you do you, we say. 

But whichever way you choose to celebrate your love—traditional or not—if it involves an excuse for multiple outfit changes, all the better for it in our opinion. Especially when there are so many jaw-droppingly beautiful, out-of-the-box bridal outfits out there now. Everywhere from the high street and more affordable contemporary brands to luxury designers are upping the stakes in bridalwear and adding cute minidresses, sparkles, feathers and fun into their collections—it seems a shame to pick just one style.
