Alfred Angelo, America’s oldest and largest family-owned and operated bridal company, was founded by Alfred Angelo Piccione in Philadelphia. Since 1933 they have been designing wedding attire for brides of all tastes, styles and budgets. So when they got in touch asking if I’d like to showcase some of their quirkier styles on my blog, I jumped at the chance. After all, that’s what I do best!

Their range is extensive (250 dresses and counting!) so it really wasn’t that difficult for me to find dresses that would please even the pickiest of alternative brides. Oh I do love my job.

Even the most Rock n Roll amongst us do sometimes dream of being a princess for the day – there’s no shame in that! If a big beautiful ballgown is what you’re after then feast your eyes on these beauties. Add some Alexander McQueen skull suede pumps, a Butler and Wilson skull tiara and oddles of black leather jewellery and you’re ready to rock my friend.

Boho Babe

Alfred Angelo designs gowns to suit all shapes and sizes, from a US size 0 to 26, and in short, standard or extra long lengths. Their Plus Size range (from a US 16-26) is just as extensive and beautiful as their standard size collection and they do not charge extra for the larger gowns. Hurrah!

So what are you waiting for? If those babies don’t tick a hell of a lot of your wedding dress boxes for you, I don’t know what will. Go forth and shop!
