You're getting married, so now's the time to start planning a color palette that you love and that — fingers crossed — will flatter all of your bridesmaids. This is their time to shine, too, and they'll look lovely surrounding you in their finery. For your convenience, we've looked high and low for where to buy affordable bridesmaid dresses that are not only gorgeous but also flattering for every body type, from petite to plus size and in colors ranging from purple to grey to black. We set our price at under $100 (some styles are under $50!), because we know how it all adds up. By the looks of these elegant gowns from David's Bridal, ASOS, Walmart, Amazon and more, you would never know they didn't cost hundreds of dollars.
If you're serious about getting flawless skin for your wedding day (and who isn't?), the latest reports on vitamin C in skin care products will make you a true believer. This ingredient isn't just hype; dermatologists have written about it glowingly in medical literature and are stocking their shelves with vitamin C-infused products, too. So we studied the science and found the 15 best vitamin C serums and beauty products to benefit your face.
Dr. Ellen Marmur, a Manhattan dermatologist and founder of Marmur Metamorphosis Skincare, explains the properties that make vitamin C a windfall for skin. "Vitamin C is an essential component in the body's production of collagen and a potent antioxidant that can help rejuvenate aged and photodamaged skin," Marmur says. "Ascorbic acid is one of the many beneficial forms of vitamin C that helps to brighten and even out skin tone."
No pre-wedding brightening regimen will be complete without one or more of these superstar products, many of which contain the antioxidant ferulic acid and can be found at favorite retailers like Amazon, Sephora and Walmart.
Shivering on your way to the altar is far from fashionable. Yet it's a surprisingly tall order to find a coverup that's appropriate — and suitably warm — to wear over wedding attire. Given the array of wedding dresses available, from romantic gowns to sassy cocktail numbers, we have found as many bridal coats, capes, stoles and shrugs to pull together your bridal ensemble.
For a sleek and chic look, faux fur is the gold standard. It's a standout for bridal attire for two reasons: It's toasty warm, and it's elegant. And it's a go-to for retro brides who want to bring some vintage luxury to their winter wedding. White fur will keep the look entirely bridal, but you can also choose a color or a natural hue. For the fashion-forward bride, we found a white faux fur moto jacket to rock your nuptials. And a black or white wool capelet lends an Old Hollywood vibe.
Below are some of our favorite winter bridal cover-ups from BHLDN, Boden, Bloomingdale's, Macy's, Nordstrom, David's Bridal, Amazon and more. Each style was selected to enhance, not hide, your wedding dress, because the picks are as pretty as your gown. And the best part? Prices start at $28!
Luggage is a purchase you only make once every few years (hopefully), so it's important to shop wisely. While you're of course looking for quality travel gear that's durable and roomy, you don't want to go broke before you've even gotten to the airport. Wedding and honeymoon planning is expensive enough — so avoid spending a small fortune by shopping luggage from stores like Kohl's and Walmart. The luggage sets ahead are functional, fashionable and, best of all, affordable — they're all under $150.
