I’ve been on the hunt for a non-traditional wedding dress for our summer wedding. I’ve always been drawn to their beautiful details and love how they speak to the person’s individuality. I’ve never been one for traditional wedding formalities and have a hard time wrapping my mind around the logic of spending an astronomical amount of money on a wedding gown only to wear it once. I know I’m in the minority here but I guess thriftiness runs deep in my blood. I also know that there’s sentimental value that comes along with a wedding dress but I feel as though I can achieve that by wearing something that speaks true to my own personal style. The response I get when I share that I’d love to thrift a vintage wedding dress has been split; half of the people gasp and think I’m a total weirdo and the other half highly encourage it and think it’s a brilliant idea.
In light of Solange’s “aesthetically superior” wedding festivities, I was inspired to put together a few of my favorite non-traditional wedding get ups.

It will come as no surprise to those who follow Dina’s Days regularly that a cropped top wedding ensemble would totally make my short list. The Reformation has a stunning collection of non-traditional wedding and bridal party dresses.
