Do you hear wedding bells? Whether they're ringing over a cathedral, or at City Hall -- these bridal looks bring style and drama to any type of ceremony.
It seems the sophisticated retro look of Mad Men has sashayed from the small screen, to the runway, and down the altar. These tea-length dresses with their cinched waistlines are timeless.
The woman nee Kate Middleton will be inspiring brides long after her wedding to Prince William. Dresses channeling her gown designed by Sara Burton for Alexander McQueen aren’t knock-offs, they are royal knock-outs.
The Black Swan
Brides and bridesmaids are taking dramatic cues from the beautiful ballerinas in the Black Swan. Tulle skirts, leotards… even toe shoes.
Short and sweet, baby doll dresses are not only feminine, they're practical. They pack and travel more easily than long gowns, and you can dance in them all night.
Leather And Feathers
There’s nothing shy about these non-traditional gowns. Leather, beads, feathers and other embellishments on wedding dresses allow the bride to say more than just ‘I do’.
Unlike the LBD, the ‘Little White Dress’ is formal enough to wear down the wedding aisle, and can bring elegance and whimsy to any dressy evening occasion.
Smart, straight and to the point – a pencil skirt is elegant at any civil ceremony. Sequins and satin take it to another level. When you leave City Hall, throw on a stole or a shrug, and go toast the ceremony with cocktails.
Chantilly Lace Gets A New Face
These lace and chiffon looks are nothing your mother's. Designers have completely retooled these traditional fabrics and the result is edgy, modern and sexy.
