After a certain number of ceremonies, the wedding attire starts to all look alike. The same demure dresses. The same unobtrusive colors. If you want to shake things up a bit without stealing the spotlight from the bride, consider these unique alternatives:
- A vintage red pencil skirt. Nothing is as timelessly sexy as a form-fitting pencil skirt. It hints at librarian with a splash of rocker-chick cool. Pair it with a vintage-inspired blouse or cardigan for ultimate impact.
- A sailor dress. Like pencil skirts, wholesale vintage sailor dresses never seem to go out of style. If the wedding has a nautical theme, even better!
- A women’s tuxedo. This one’s burrowed from the boys, but cut sleek and updated with feminine details such as satin piping and a low neckline, a women’s tuxedo is anything but mannish.
