While there are those who would rather go with the conventional looks for their big days, there are the rule breakers who are unafraid to remain true to themselves in their creative expression.
Such appears to be the case of a gorgeous lady whose video has since gone viral on social media.
In the video, the lady who appeared to have gone for her wedding dress fitting is seen in a regal black mermaid dress with a long ruffle train.
While the dress is unarguably gorgeous, the fact that it is in all-black colour makes it stand out even more.
The last part of the video sees the ruffled flounce being detached from the dress to create a high-leg dress perfect for the wedding reception.
