The wedding table runner has traditionally been a must-have décor item for dressing up a table, whether it's used to cover the midsection of a bare table or added atop a tablecloth to create a rich tableau. In earlier centuries, layering such items was reserved for the wealthy as a sumptuous way to display one's taste. (Downton Abbey, anyone?) As a new bride, you'll enjoy using runners to decorate your table, along with your new serveware, china and glassware. For a wedding, they give an additional pop to the overall wedding design. Table runners may reflect the bride's color scheme to create a coordinated color palette, or in a neutral color, wedding table runners can provide the perfect backdrop for flowers and table settings.
Table runners can help lend a summery vibe to a wedding, as well. A burlap runner is perfect for a rustic wedding, while a floral print runner is divine for a garden wedding, and a shiny table runner ups the ante for a black-tie affair. Whatever your style, we've collected the best table runners from stores such as Etsy, Nordstrom, Macy's and more.

There's no rule book that says a wedding gown must be white. Modern brides are embracing color, a trend possibly first sparked by Gwen Stefani's custom dip-dyed and hand-painted pink ombre wedding gown by John Galliano for Christian Dior back 2002. After Gwen's rule-breaking move, Reese Witherspoon got married in a pale pink gown by Monique Lhuillier and Jessica Biel wore a blush-toned Giambattista Valli creation for her marriage to Justin Timberlake. Sure, white and ivory will remain the wedding gown go-tos, but many other colorful dresses have us swooning, particularly for summer weddings. Here, we've rounded up a variety of wedding dresses in shades of blush, metallics, yellow, blue and beyond from David's Bridal, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and more. It's our ode to the rainbow, and we think you should go for it!

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!
