If the poufy-dresssed princess look isn’t quite what you’re envisaging rocking down the aisle on your wedding day, you’re probably hunting for a bridal look that’s a little left-of-centre. Enter this recent shoot for The Knot US, which features the most divine bridal looks we never knew we wanted ’til now. Who needs a standard wedding dress when you can say “I do” in a bridal romper suit, or while sporting a white crop top? Yep, put the ballgown aside and opt for one of these, or keep the dress and accessorise it with a black leather jacket. (Because, why not?) Here’s a look at five not-so-traditional bridal looks. Even if you’re not game to take it this far (or you think your mum might throw a major tanty if you turn up to the ceremony wearing a pantsuit!), check out the photos below for a little wedding style-spiration.
1. LACE ROMPER
The best thing about wearing a romper to your wedding, besides the fact that you’re wearing a romper (amazing!), is you can go super-short and still be totally appropriate.
2. FANCY PANTS
Menswear-inspired looks aren’t just trending in evening wear — this chic style is just as hot in bridal. And yes, those are sequinned pants.
Blouse and pants, Houghton
3 & 4. CROP TOP
All we have to say is, if you have the abs (or just the confidence) to wear a crop top on your wedding, do it.

5. A TOUCH OF GRAY
There are two ways to make even a big poufy wedding dress look edgy: Add a cool leather jacket and a punch of colour.

6. SHORT SKIRT
Although not completely unconventional, a knee-length dress still gives off a certain rebellious attitude we’re totally into.
