Some brides will stick to the tried and true designers of gowns. You know the ones.

But if you’re a woman who likes to set the trends, and want to continue that reputation to your wedding, you might choose a bridal gown designer with a different vision and will offer you a look unlike most of your guests are accustomed to.

At the recent Charleston Fashion Week in South Carolina, a pair of fresh bridal gown designers—Whitney Deal and Kendra Barnes—recently shared their vision of the perfect and unique look for a woman willing to break the mold on their wedding day. Deal was dubbed Charleston Fashion Week’s “Up-And-Coming Designer.” And Barnes was selected for the Emerging Designer East contest.

Here are some of their looks.
