A lot of the brides that come to us for rented looks are looking for trend-driven pieces and wedding dress alternatives rather than your traditional wedding gown. Which is why we asked Sheila Adetiba, curator of the Instagram account @unLIKEBRIDE which is a feed of daily bridal inspiration for the diverse modern "unLIKEBRIDE", to curate a selection of HURR pieces for us. Keep scrolling to see her edit and why she chose each look!
"Summer easy-going brides, no need to compromise comfort or ease with or without a growing baby bump with this elegant yet effortless look."
"Bring a little modern-day romance with this ivory lace gown, touched with dramatic shoulders and short sleeves."
"A bit of sparkle and an open back is a great choice to take brides through their wedding vows and onto the dance floor."
"A belted clean crisp mini alternative perfect for the chic intimate civil ceremony."
"Statement two-piece suit for the timeless modest bride."
"This delicate, vintage and playful look is spot on for the inner fun-loving bride."
While we’re the first to tell you that if you want new, rent instead, there’s no denying that sometimes your wardrobe needs permanent staples that will stand the test of time. When it comes to selecting those ‘buy now, love forever’ pieces, few do it better than London-based blogger Lindsey Holland. Take a peek at her top sustainable brands below.
