Bride requests female guests wear their old bridal gowns to wedding

When stories arise of brides requesting their guests wear certain outfits, a lot of the time it is the brides being 'bridezillas'. But this refreshing story of a bride who requested her female guests wear their old bridal gowns is quite the opposite. 

At an "unusual" wedding ceremony held recently, the bride and groom had just one request for the women on their guest list: dig out your own bridal gown and wear it.

Explaining the theme, the groom said: "We thought it was sad that most women only get to wear their wedding dress once, so we invited all the women coming to out non-traditional wedding to wear their old wedding dresses again!"

"There’s so much pressure to do a 'traditional' wedding," he added, "even if that doesn’t represent your relationship."

Instead, the pair did things their way and got some very memorable wedding photos. Some guests actually borrowed wedding dresses from friends and family members just to fit in with the special theme.

And in the sea of white, the bride stood out in a blue gown she custom designed, with inspiration taken from Disney princesses like Cinderella and Elsa.

And to top of the 'un-tradtional' wedding, the bride and groom had their mums as the flower girls!
