If you happen to have two major dates in your future — a baby's due date and a wedding — well, soon-to-be Mrs. Mom, you have much to celebrate. But first, take a deep breath and pick the wedding dress. Size your maternity wedding dress according to what your due date will be on your wedding day, and size up to cover your bases: It's always easier to tailor a larger dress. Then the sky's the limit! You can a choose a silhouette that includes a flowing A-line skirt and a high empire waist or, in the opposite direction, a form-fitting style that shows off your great legs and features a flattering neckline. If your bump will be small on the big day and you would prefer to hide it, a peplum waist is the perfect camouflage. (Bonus: In some cases, you can double dip by using your wedding dress as your baby shower gown.) No matter how far along you are, your wedding will be a celebration of love and life. We've rounded up some gorgeous maternity wedding gowns from our favorite online shops, including Etsy, Nordstrom and David's Bridal. Cheers to you!
To guarantee that there are no cold feet at a wedding, buy some stylish socks for the groomsmen. Fun prints abound in men's sockwear, from those featuring vintage Mickey Mouse illustrations to adorable dogs to the Rolling Stones' iconic tongue-and-lips logo. Because stylish men's socks offer guys the primo opportunity to energize their ensembles, look for funky, colorful sock sets that will bring chic to their feet.
The dual traits of fun and quality are a rarity in men's socks, but we've curated a list of socks that accomplish both. Groomsmen socks make awesome wedding party presents, so seek out yours among the favorites that we found at ASOS, Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus.
Every love story is unique: For the bride, an alternative engagement ring becomes her outward symbol of a one-of-a-kind love. Unusual rings are embraced by the bride who requires statement-making jewelry, and her choice of style runs the gamut from quietly minimalistic to exuberantly ornate.
Sure, the white round diamond has long been the classic engagement ring, but many gorgeous options exist beyond that typical style. Some are rendered unique due their setting design, be it modern or vintage-inspired. Others stand out due to their metal, ranging from rose gold to a highly-polished platinum band. A constellation of gemstones is there for one's choosing, including deeply red rubies, ink-toned sapphires, blushing morganites and opalescent pearls. Here, we've selected the most stunning alternative engagement rings from Nordstrom, Macy's, Neiman Marcus and more.
A blushing bride with a dewy glow, lush lashes and flushed lips: Doesn't that sound like a pretty picture? You can create it. Use your inner beauty as your canvas, then bring your creative talents and some artist-worthy glowing beauty products into the mix. This is how you can amp up your natural beauty for the big day. We love the high-low nature of beauty products that can be found in one spot, via Walmart, which offers high-end brands such as Guerlain and NARS, as well as affordable brands like L'Oreal and Revlon. We've curated a list of glowy skin and makeup products, including bronzer, highlighter, lip gloss and more, for a wedding day look from Walmart that won't break the bank.
The white ball gown remains the iconic wedding dress for a princess bride. Think: Cinderella, Grace Kelly and Jacqueline Kennedy. Such wedding gown imagery is bound tightly within our collective memories, yet modernity has brought many a twist to the time-honored silhouette. One is the wedding jumpsuit. Another recently popularized style is the two-piece wedding ensemble, a new choice for the iconoclasts among us. The two-piece bridal outfit allows a bride various options. With a crop top and skirt combo, fit brides can subtly (or not so subtly...) flaunt their washboard abs. A voluminous skirt paired with a simple, structured top creates a stunning display. A slinky skirt and form-fitting top can allow for movement within structure. Here, we've made it a cinch to find your two-piece wedding gown by listing amazing options from Nordstrom, Etsy, David's Bridal and more.
