With hundreds of big name bridal designers
releasing two collections each year, it's easy to miss the lovely creations from smaller, more niche wedding dress designers
. And if expressing your unique style through your wedding day look is important, then these lesser-known designers just might have the wedding dress of your dreams!
Love the Grecian Goddess style aesthetic? Are you drawn to wedding dresses that feature draping? Then check out Theia Couture
. This fabulous design house crafts gorgeous gowns
inspired by the Greek goddess Theia. Theia Couture also has some killer wedding reception frocks... think figure-flattering silhouettes and dazzling beading.
Next up is Fancy New York
. Fancy is for our vintage-loving brides
. If you're all about the tea-length dress trend
, then you'll adore the retro wedding frocks by Fancy! Personally, I'm over the moon for the super sleek Tank Dress (photo 6, left). This baby is perfect for a beach or destination wedding!
And finally, were you inspired by Natalie Portman
's couture attire in the Black Swan
? If you've been dreaming about a dramatic ballgown wedding dress high on texture, then bridal designer Agape Ever
is a must-know!
Do any of these 2011 dresses tickle your fancy?
