Nontraditional Bridal Gown Textures

Nontraditional Bridal Gown Textures

Traditional bridal aesthetics have always embraced vintage laces, soft silks, and modest silhouettes. While undeniably beautiful, these classic stylings may not quite offer what the contemporary bride’s chic, ever-evolving fashion tastes are dreaming of. At Chantal’s Bridal & Formal, our team is loving the unexpected twists that nontraditional textures add to timeless designs. Here are a few of our favorites:


Illusion Appliqués

LP2221 by La Perle



Lace appliqués embroidered onto invisible mesh create an absolutely mesmerizing visual effect of delicate ivory details simply floating above bare skin. Apart from being a jaw-dropper from every angle, this dreamy design offers the perfect opportunity to sneak support into looks that could use the added security, like the strapless mermaid gown by La Perle shown above.



Allover Sequins

#E214 by Abella



For our gals dreaming of a glamorous bridal look, allover sequins are the key to turning the atmosphere of your white veil occasion into that of a star-studded Hollywood movie premiere. As shown in the Abella A-line wedding dress above, this luxurious, shimmering texture will ensure all eyes stay locked on you.


Feathered Lace

#66145 by Lillian West



Nontraditional lace strikes the perfect balance between classic bridal aesthetics and contemporary fashion trends the best of both worlds! This year, we’ve found ourselves particularly drawn to feathered lace, as shown in the Lillian West gown above. This whimsical design is sure to leave the bohemian bride swooning.
