More and more brides are taking the leap and opting to wear a white jumpsuit on their wedding day. The chic look has been championed by celebrity brides including Solange Knowles, in her marriage to video producer Alan Ferguson, and human rights lawyer Amal Clooney, who, of course, is married to actor George Clooney.
Knowles actually wore three different jumpsuits by French designer Stéphane Rolland during her wedding weekend, beginning with a sexy ivory-toned version she wore while biking to the ceremony at New Orleans' Marigny Opera House. By the wedding's end, she was dancing in the streets to a brass band while wearing her third jumpsuit, with a plunging neckline.
For the Italian civil ceremony that preceded her wedding, Amal Clooney wore what looked like a white jumpsuit, but was actually belted separates, by Stella McCartney. Clooney, who is friends with McCartney, has also worn a one-shoulder jumpsuit with crochet lace and cropped legs by the British designer, as well as a lace burgundy jumpsuit by Giambattista Valli.
A white bridal jumpsuit is a chic dress alternative that is perfect for the style-savvy bride. As Clooney did, the bride can wear a white jumpsuit to her civil wedding for an unexpected look that is destined to impress. She can also wear a jumpsuit to the wedding ceremony to create a memorable look. As another option, she could wear a jumpsuit to her wedding reception, because this wedding-dress alternative is perfect for hitting the dance floor. Freedom is the vibe of a bridal jumpsuit, and we love it.
The big day is around the corner and a bride's wedding planning work is never done. But one item you can tick-off your to-do list and feel great about is purchasing gifts of appreciation for all your best gals. A bridesmaid gift is a genuine way to show your love — and apologize for any bridezilla-esque moments! These on-trend, stylish and elegant robes and kimonos are a pretty perfect "thank you" for the whole bridal party. Plus, a silk or satin robe is Instagram-worthy, frequently customizable and fully wearable beyond just the bachelorette party pics or wedding day festivities. Some are even cute outside the bedroom when paired with denim jeans, shorts or even a little black dress! Here are a bunch of our favorite, affordable and fashionable bridesmaids robes you can buy at Macy's, Nordstrom, David's Bridal, Etsy, Amazon and more right now.

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.
