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.
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!
Every bride breathes in a deep sigh of relief on her wedding day. It may not go smoothly, and that's fine. But between now and then, getting the wedding prepared is a bit of a marathon, and it can't hurt to be physically fit. Sure, there's a lot of pressure on brides to look as good as possible in that wedding gown, and many women find themselves "shedding for the wedding." Whether you're looking to drop a few pounds, simply want to stay toned or are trying to tame your inner Bridezilla with some stress-relieving yoga, we've found 20 high-tech performance leggings to wear in your pursuit of health and happiness. They'll keep you comfy and dry as you work toward your goal, and most importantly, you'll look and feel fabulous on your special day.
After the wedding itself, the second busiest aspect of planning is creating a wedding registry. It should be one of your fist tasks and you should make certain all of the essentials are included. A basic item all newlyweds should get is an amazing new sheet set — or two or three or four sets. You'll want to create a bedroom that's a cozy retreat for you and your new hubby, so use our handy list to start adding your bedding basics your wedding registry checklist.
We've done tons of research to find the best sheet sets for new brides, according to the best reviews on the internet. We also looked at thread count (we recommend no less than 200), materials, weave type, organic options, design, price, quality and more. Phew! There are a lot of sheets out there, and the materials run the gamut — organic cotton, long-staple cotton, chemical-free cotton, Egyptian cotton, microfiber, sateen, satin, flannel and more are among your choices. When you register, you peruse this list to decide what's most important to you for creating your new nest of newlywed coziness.
Pearl earrings are a perennial favorite for brides. Aesthetically, they fit the occasion thanks to their glamorous luster and elegant personality. And because they're so versatile, pearl earrings can be worn long after your wedding. In fact, whether they're vintage pearl studs or on-trend drop earrings in a rose gold setting, pearl earrings are a staple of a jewelry collection.
Many lucky brides receive their first cultured or freshwater pearl earrings as a wedding gift. Traditionally, pearls worn as wedding earrings tended to be white, but modern brides can opt for black pearls (which are actually dark gray) or other shades, such as pale pink or nude.
Stud earrings are always a classic wedding look. Some studs are embellished with small diamonds or gemstones for extra glamour. And since a variety of shades are available, you can pick pearl earrings in tones to match your wedding colors. If pearl earrings are your only jewelry, you can also choose a style that is a true statement piece, such as dramatic teardrops or chic chandeliers. One of the best things about pearls is that they always look timeless and ladylike, no matter what the design.
