Alternative Wedding Ideas

Are you dreaming of a non traditional wedding? Are you looking to break the mold and shake things up a little bit on your big day? Well, keep scrolling for some fabulous alternative wedding styling and fashion ideas, inspired by real House of Elliot Brides or wedding shoots we have been part of!

Wear what you want: Who said all wedding gowns need to be white or ivory? There are so many alternative wedding gowns available now, from black gowns to jumpsuits to gowns with sexy splits. Here are some of our favorites:

Ombre every day! If you are having a Fall wedding a beautiful ombre gown bursting with Autumnal colors might be the choice for you. We love this beautiful customized dyed vintage gown House of Elliot Bride Darby wore!

Go Gothic and choose a black wedding gown. The perfect choice for an alternative wedding, a black wedding gown is a must have if you are having a Halloween themed wedding!

Make a statement with a sexy split! Want to add some va va voom to your wedding look? A split wedding dress is a fabulous way to step out in style, not to mention it’s the perfect choice to show off a pair of House of Elliot ‘Goodnight Sweetheart’ boots of course!

Say yes in Steampunk Style. Steampunk is a twist on Victorian fashion and is the perfect match for a pair of black ‘Beatrice Elliot’ lace knee high boots.

Be bold and go short! The perfect choice to show off our ‘Lizzie Elliot’ lace boots. Bride Navrioska rocked her boots in white satin bridal shorts and crop top.

Choose a quirky wedding theme: Do you love Game of Thrones? Or maybe you want to be Alice in your very own wedding wonderland? A quirky wedding theme that reflects your passion is the perfect way to incorporate what you love in your special day. Here are a few ideas to help plan your uniquely themed wedding!

Game of Thrones Glamour. We think that the Night King would be jealous of this icy GOT wedding look, don’t you?

Alice in Weddingland. Are you a fan of Lewis Carroll’s classic book? An Alice in Wonderland wedding is a fun and unique wedding theme which compliments a short wedding dress! Paired with a pair of ‘Lottie Elliot’ lace ankle boots, it’s the perfect whimsical wedding look.

Bridgerton Fever. We have all been swept away by Netflix’s Bridgerton so why not plan a wedding to impress the Ladies of Ton? Delicate Regency inspired wedding details are the perfect way to incorporate a touch of Bridgerton elegance into your big day, such as these delicate gloves and House of Elliot ‘Josephine’ boots.

Dark Literature. Love a touch of the macabre or fascinated by the occult? This wedding was inspired by Edgar Allen Poe’s ‘The Raven’ and we love the dark romantic vibes. The blue wedding dress was custom made and styled with a pair of ‘Evangeline Elliot’ lace knee high boots in black.

Choose alternative wedding accessories: Wedding accessories such as footwear or tiaras are the perfect way to add a touch of the alternative without going full blown out non-traditional.

The shoes (or boots in this case!). A pair of House of Elliot boots can elevate a traditional wedding dress to new heights. Why not pair a white dress with a pair of black ‘Lotte Elliot’ boots like House of Elliot Bride Camilla.

Why not surprise your Groom like Bride Abbe did with a pair of sultry ‘Goodnight Sweetheart’ lace boots hidden underneath your gown!

Hair Heaven. Tired of ‘vanilla’ mass-produced wedding tiaras or just looking for something extra special as your crowning glory? Every hairpiece Wendy from ‘Vintage Adornment’ makes is created from re-purposed vintage jewelry. She can even make a custom piece, especially for you! We especially love this stunning tiara, perfect for a Vintage themed wedding with a twist.

Blooming Beautiful. A stylish bouquet is a perfect way to incorporate your favourite colours and we love this oversized take on a traditional bridal bouquet by Sincerely PS Wedding Design.

And finally, why not choose a snazzy gold belt to elevate wedding dress to disco diva status? Paired with a pair of ‘Goodnight Sweetheart‘ boots in black you are guaranteed a showstopping wedding look!
