My Top 10 Non Lace Wedding Dresses

Now, don’t get me wrong…..lace wedding dresses are beautiful and I don’t blame anyone for falling in love with them.

I think it’s time to start moving in another direction and see more alternative styles of non lace wedding dresses.

But these 10 wedding dresses are styles I think should be celebrated! Let me know what you think of them. Do you have a favourite? Or is there another dress you would love to share the link for?

9 Things Wedding Dress Boutiques Wish You Knew

Before you start searching for your perfect wedding dress, there are some things you need to know……or at least some things wedding dress boutiques wish you knew before you start the search.
