Two looks from Unbridaled Boutique
Left: Sleek and sophisticated, this Ariamo jumpsuit, £899, is a dream. “A bride wearing trousers is basically the antithesis of all things wedding. It’s an empowering look and I adore the androgyny of it,” says Unbridaled Boutique’s Emily Plunkett; right: The organza Lullaby skirt and bolero, £POA, by Liretta are certified crowd-pleasers. The sleeves on the upper half can be removed to change the look up for an evening of dancing. Available at Ayr’s Unbridaled Boutique

The Eliana polka-dot tulle corset and skirt is most definitely a fresh take on a Bridgerton-inspired vibe, £3,250; right: Made in Chelsea’s Sophie Habboo donned a cute, corseted Vivienne Westwood mini for her home wedding.

Left: The flutter-sleeve mini dress, £POA, from Glasgow’s Flossy and Dossy is a slice of swinging ’60s style. Flirty dresses like this are fun to wear with OTT accessories, like the statement-making veil in this instance (photo: Lena Sabala Photography); right: “For brides seeking something out of the ordinary we might look to Australian designer Wendy Makin,” says Michelle Kelly at Kudos Bridal Boutiques (Edinburgh). “This brand’s hallmarks are luxurious and unique fabrics and simple styles with unexpected details, such as the pearl-dotted sleeves of this Pearl gown.” £POA
Two outfits from Reflections Bridal Boutique
Left: A bride wearing the trousers? Yes please! With puff sleeves and a deep V-back, the Seraphine jumpsuit by Wendy Makin, £POA, wouldn’t look out of place on the Studio 54 dancefloor. Available at Reflections Bridal Boutique; right: “We are seeing brides step away from more ‘traditional’ gowns; instead, we’ve found that they want to show more skin in styles with splits and tattoo lace,” Chloe at Kelso’s Reflections Bridal Boutique tells us. The Amalfi skirt and Lulu top, £POA, by Wendy Makin ticks these boxes

Left: The puff bow sleeves and detachable train option give Essense of Australia’s style D3822 an alternative edge, but take them off, and you have a look that’ll keep your inner-traditionalist happy. “This style is clean-cut and modern and I love its pleated sweetheart bodice. Its removable elements makes it great for a bride who wants it all,” says Megan Carberry at Kudos Bridal Boutiques (Dunfermline); right: Add a pop of colour into your look with the Lavinia veil from Maggie Sottero, available at Kudos Dunfermline
