When you’re young and dreaming of your wedding, you always imagine your big day differently. One day you might be a princess, the next a space bride. As an adult, the question remains of what kind of bride you will be. Will you be boho? Risque? Romantic? Browse our bridal looks to see what best suits your style and personality.
Boho brides want that effortless beauty that demands attention without the glitz. They want dresses full rustic vibes and whimsical detailing. Think off-the-shoulder, lace, multiple fabrics and wavy hair to get that bohemian dream look. Pair your boho dress with a flower crown, no shoes and definitely think about a beach wedding.
For the brides who can’t choose one dress – have two? Why not wow your fiancé in a long traditional dress but then stun your husband in a short party dress. Wedding dresses which can change into party dresses by simply removing your outside skirts have become very popular. It’s a unique and modern take on the traditional wedding dress that will delight alternative brides. So whether you’re indecisive and want two styles, or would rather rock your reception in a short dress, try this alternative dress. You have the best of both worlds, and more importantly, it’s the outfit change without the hassle.
Everyone wants to be a princess at some stage in their life, and many dream of having that Cinderella moment on their wedding day. If you want to feel magical and fulfil those princess dreams, wear a big beautiful dress full of layers, fabric and glitter. You can also take it that one step further and wear a tiara – you only get married once after all! Don’t be scared to make the most of that princess feeling.
Sometimes less is more. If challenging fashion trends is out of your comfort zone, wear a traditional, plain yet beautiful ivory dress. This effortless, timeless style will never be outdated. Add some sparkly capped sleeves or glittering jewels to add some understated glamour. Don’t forget to bless your dress with a beautiful veil to complete the traditional look.
If you’re feeling a little less traditional, shock your friends and family with an unexpected modern twist. A combination of a sheath ballgown and wedding dress and the result is meltingly magical. If you’re a fan of a modern wedding look, why not wear a low ‘V’ neckline dress and full illusion sleeves? Or a royal Kate Middleton twist, but with the sexy open back, will be sure to make an entrance. Either way, you’re sure to stun the crowd.
If you’re a hopeless romantic who loves to feel gorgeous, a perfect option is to wear a sweetheart neckline and a dress which defines your waist. These are for the brides who want to feel graceful, elegant and, of course, beautiful. This style will show off your womanly curves and use light and delicate fabrics to exaggerate your femininity. Curling your hair will be the icing on the (wedding) cake.
The Rule Breaker
Who says you have to wear a white or ivory dress? It’s your day and your rules. Challenge the conventional wedding dress style, and wear colours like blush pink. Your guests and partner will be dazzled by the unexpected and gorgeous choice.

You can get assistance in selecting dresses or just try on any of these stunning options at Eternal Bridal, which has stores in Sydney and Melbourne. Be true to yourself and you’ll shine in anything you wear. After all, a happy bride is a beautiful bride.
