Cool girls, we're calling your name. If you prefer agate stones over diamonds, airy chiffon over heavy frills, and basically anything that doesn't scream bridal, you'll be all over these dresses. Because regardless of what society tells you, your wedding—dress included—can be anything but traditional. If you balk at the thought of going to a typical bridal-gown store, just where can you find something original, stylish, and true to your taste? Whether you have boho, minimalist, or vintage leanings, your answer is right here.

Layers of silk chiffon hand-beaded with antique-silver-colored precosa stones and silver and gold sequins give Bo & Luca’s "Risley" gown a gypsy-esque vibe. A silk button connects a crop top to a fluttering skirt for an off-beat silhouette.

Maria Korovilas’s "Alice" dress is an ethereal dream. Featuring hand-beaded appliqués, this embroidered confection pops with three-dimensional details. Shades of lilac, lavender, and antique brass lend a fairy-like quality, while a deep scalloped neckline and four-foot train bring a dash of drama.

Bohemian meets minimalism in the modern "Athena" dress by Christy Dawn. Its beauty lies in its simplicity, with a wrap style, flowing multitiered skirt that gives it a breezy vibe, and plunging neckline. It’s the perfect amount of sexy without being too risqué.

This French lace confection by Grace Loves Lace, called "Verdelle 2.0,"has an angel-like silhouette, thanks to its unique cape detail. A slit, low-cut neckline, and square back show off a bit of skin in a look that is effortless and wildly romantic.

Theia’s white Chantilly-lace "Sofia" brings a touch of boho to the princess, thanks to an off-the-shoulder ruffled lace flounce complementing a ball-gown silhouette, perfect for the bride who wants to pair a touch of the traditional with laid-back accents.

Odylyne the Ceremony’s "Juliet" exudes old-world romance. Dramatic bell sleeves, which echo the gown’s full sweeping train, and the formfitting bodice carry a hint of Renaissance flair. Hand-beaded embellished floral lace adds a touch of sparkle.

The desert-inspired "Leyla" top and skirt by One Day Bridal feature gunmetal beaded lace and embellished trim for an edgy glam look. There’s no denying that you’ll shimmer down the aisle in this alternative showstopper.
