You'll only have one wedding dress to be immortalized through the years so it's vital that you choose yours carefully. That said, look for something fashionable yet timeless! To help you out, here are 10 unique wedding dress details you can incorporate in your dream wedding gown! Scroll down to see more!

1. Black accents

Break the norm and embellish your gown with black details that will easily modernize it. Do it like Marchesa and tie a black ribbon around your waist. You can also wear black stilettos and top your gown with black flowers like Vera Wang has done. The possibilities are endless!

2. Embellished bodices

Your special day is the one chance you can get to sparkle—yes, even in the most literal sense. Whether the sparkles are heavily stitched on your gown or sourced from sequins, the choice is up to you. Either way, you will feel like a million bucks.

3. Suits & separates

Modern brides, rejoice! If you are not into form-fiting mermaid gowns or are not partial to huge ball gown skirts, you can totally wear separates on your wedding day! Balance the look by incorporating delicate pieces like lace and florals or go for a top that functions as a train. The best thing about the look? You can wear it again!

4. Bows

If you're a minimalist bride looking for a way to decorate your gown without using lace or crystals, then bows are your new bestfriend! Make them oversized or incorporate delicate details like Viktor & Rolf's. Both exude chic simplicity.

Pile on the baubles and wear precious pearls layered over your gown or in a cascading cape-like form that adds luxury and edge to your gown.

8. Veil emphasis

You won't have to settle with thin and delicate veils. Wear yours as your wedding look's focal point. The more dramatic your veil is, the better!

Fulfill your princess dreams and wear that extra large ball gown skirt. Stand out in a puffy gown in a sea of slip dresses. They may not be made for dancing, but hey, they're your most regal option out there.
