Should I be a ‘traditional’ bride?

Should I be a ‘traditional’ bride?

To be or not to be? That is the question here!

As a little girl did you dream of the big white dress and fairy tale wedding? Did you play dress ups as a princess bride? What did your dream dress look like?

These days we are faced with so many decisions as to what style we should have for our wedding. Remembering that it is not every girls dream to don a white dress.

So, when it comes to your special day, what will you be rocking down the aisle?


A lot of brides stay classic and go for a more traditional style wedding. A large member bridal party, veil, something old-something new, traditional vows, long white gown and formal reception.

These days many brides can feel compelled to follow family traditions and/or cultures to please relatives, or even to follow their own dreams. A traditional style wedding is somewhat of a royal affair, black tie, lavish princess gown, glitz and glam affair.

Try Demetrios, Cosmobella, or Oreasposa gowns


More of a classic style of wedding, with the charm of the bride and groom’s personalities in each and every corner. Hand written vows with a splash of colour. Simple and stunning dresses, suits and ties.

For the down to earth and laid back bride,  vintage weddings are the perfect style. Very popular among most brides these days as the relaxed and casual atmosphere bides well for that small family and friends gathering.

View the Michelle Roth and the Alfred Angelo range for some ideas.


Whether on a beach, in a garden or in the gorgeous countryside, outdoor weddings are a great way to incorporate the beauty of nature into your wedding. If you are a boho bride then this is best way to showcase your gown.

Watters bridal are great for this type of look.

Whatever you and your partner decide (after all it is your wedding), do what suits you as a couple and what makes you both feel happy. Break free from the stereotypical bride mould and celebrate your ‘I dos’ in your choice of style. Take inspiration from your life and embrace the future.
