What does a punk-rock bride wear to her big day? If designer Stephanie Ward‘s “Punk Rock Bride” collection is any indication, she wears the same flowey white thing the other brides wear—-but with an attitude. Ward writes that she designs for the “bride who is looking for an original, non-traditional wedding dress.” To me, these pretty, ruffled, white designs are perfect fit for the bride who wants a different kind of wedding dress—-without sacrificing the traditional virginal imagery (or the cost).
Check out Ward’s Joey Ramone-inspired off-white silk charmeuse creations, after the jump.
Joan Jett would be right at home with this bride’s studded stilletos, passed-out-in-an-alley pose, and French chantilly lace overlay. $3,900.
This silk chiffon sleeve must be inspired by Judy‘s Ice Capades phase. $3,400.
Johnny Rotten was known to trade in the studded belt for this silk organza beaded band from time to time. $3,100.
If you stare longingly into this dress’s silk chiffon ruffle and pleated overlay, you can just make out the outline of the Misfits‘ iconic fiend skull. Available in off-white. $3,800.
This layered silk ruffle-detail is perfect for the impromptu ceremony held under the highway overpass. $3,400.
