Kick it with these colorful alternative wedding shoes

Here at Offbeat Bride, we have been talking about alternative weddings shoes for nontraditional folks LITERALLY FOR DECADES. I’ve been rounding up super bold unique bridal shoes since 2007, and as I’ve gotten older, my taste has only gotten weirder. Today, I’m going to share some of my favorite nontraditional shoes for 2022.

It’s Pride month! Let’s deck out your LGBTQ+ wedding with these rainbow wedding details [Updated for 2022!]

June is celebrated in most areas of the U.S. as Pride Month. While we love to celebrate LGBTQ+ weddings all year round, we especially like to give some special attention to Pride-themed weddings during the month of June.

Holographic Mermaid Wedding Dress

This holographic mermaid wedding dress is blowing my mind (and giving me fins!)

Researching dresses can yield fab rewards. Such was the case when I spied this mermaid fantasy of a gown from KMKDesigns. I love a dress that can be re-worn in general, but when it can be reworn as a costume, for a super glam ball, or any fancy dress party, it’s a win. It’s made of holographic vinyl and pearlescent organza with approximately one zillion hand-sewn iridescent sequins and pearls.
