Bridal Fashion Week: unusual wedding dresses for beautifully bold brides

If you’re not the kind of bride likely to want the ivory princess dress complete with all the trimmings, you might want to ready your wedding Pinterest board.

Spring 2018 style was in abundance at New York’s Bridal Fashion Week, with catwalks showcasing everything from black wedding dresses to sequin-detail trouser suits to striking accessories guaranteed to blow the socks off a cathedral veil.

Even if you're not sure on going the full Jessica Rabbit with a deep red gown, there’s plenty of inspiration here for those wanting a hint of something different.

Scroll through our gallery below for our pick of the fashion week designs, styles and accessories for the bride less ordinary.
