Houghton Spring 2018 Wedding Dress Collection
/*-->*/There's a lot to say about Houghton, but we'll give them the mic first—the self-descriptions on their website are totally spot-on. "Houghton has succeeded in blurring the lines between day and evening," they write, not to mention the lines between "every day and wedding day." From the outside looking in, we couldn't agree more. Traditional brides, be warned: You won't find conventional wedding dresses here. In fact, Houghton's known for some killer non-gown alternatives. But the label's uniqueness delivers its charm, breathing fresh, funky air into an often-repetitive industry.
Founded five years ago by designer and creative director Katharine Polk, the off-beat brand was instantly acclaimed. Bringing a whole new meaning to ready-to-wear, the looks since then have kept their edgy flair. When we think Houghton, we think cool, chic, and authentic—these wedding dresses aren't just for catalogs, they're for creative, real-world women. (Need proof? Peep their last-season look-book video, featuring fashion-forward ladies giving personal, moving interviews.)
This season stays true to the brand's one-of-a-kind roots, with jaw-dropping designs made for bold, gutsy brides. Modern, well-made, and just plain fun, these styles are bound to turn heads. Some of our favorites include a two-piece style that combines lace pants (yes, pants!) with a crop top, a wedding dress with a Grecian-style halter neckline and daring cutout, and a floral number that begs for boho backyard wedding.
