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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
