The past year has not exactly been easy for couples who planned to tie the knot. With canceled plans and postponed wedding dates due to the global pandemic many couples have instead opted for simple, low-key celebrations that may (or may not) be followed by a bigger event at a later date. Because of this, we’ve also seen a rise in women choosing alternative and nontraditional wedding outfits catered to a more low-key celebration. As Lily Allen proved you can still look striking and have lots of fun with your look if you decide to go this route.
