The beauty of a modern day wedding is that you can have it your way. Increasingly couples are turning their back on tradition and opting for a unique celebration which reflects their individualities and beliefs. 

Gone are the days when the bride being given away by her father or a lucky Sixpence placed in her shoe were considered compulsory elements. Today's weddings usually feature a smattering of hand-picked traditions and instead present a more personal take on proceedings. 

While white wedding gowns are still very much the norm - traditionally thought to represent the bride's purity - many leading ladies are choosing a different kind of outfit altogether. 

Introducing the contemporary bride who yearns for a style statement all of her very own for the most special of days. Does this sound like you? Here are 10 types of non-conventional wedding ensembles that will allow your sass to shine through...
