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!
Aside from the bride, the sweetest sight at the wedding is the flower girl. Holding her own with a dainty basket of petals, she is a vision of loveliness when she walks down the aisle. It's such fun to pick out a flower girl dress to blend in with the ensembles of the bridal party, especially for a light and bright spring or summer wedding. Your little princess can be traditional and wear white or ivory, or she can wear a solid color taken from the wedding palette. Some fashion-forward brides may even choose an interesting print that suits the mood of the wedding. Since the flower girl is something of a mascot, she can be command a truly unique aesthetic. Here, we've rounded up some the prettiest flower girl dresses from Nordstrom, J. Crew, BHLDN and more.
Bridesmaids' gifts show your bevy of besties how much you appreciate the support they gave you throughout your wedding prep and the big day. These bridesmaids helped you select a wedding dress, offered a shoulder cry on and laughed with you during the long, fun and stressful wedding day. Giving a fabulous bridesmaids gift is a traditional gesture of appreciation. We love bridesmaids gifts that are stylish, useful and possess universal appeal, particularly if they are cushy "extras" that your bridesmaids typically wouldn't have bought for themselves. So don't fret: We've rounded up the coolest bridesmaids gifts, including pieces from Anthropologie, Amazon and ASOS, to give you a list of gifts they will truly love.
After you've picked out your wedding gown, shoes and veil, it's time to choose that last accent: the handbag. Despite your maid of honor's promises to take care of all your needs, don't forget that bridal purse – because you WILL want a lipstick at some point.
Wedding purses and clutches are itsy-bitsy by tradition. (It should be nowhere near as big as your typical day bag!) Bridal clutches need only hold a cell phone, a lipstick, some breath mints and a hankie. Think "dainty." To aid your wedding shopping mission, we scoured some of our favorite online stores to find inexpensive bridal handbags that look pricey. In fact, despite their designer origins – Rebecca Minkoff, Ted Baker of London, White by Vera Wang – every purse on our list sells for under $100. Here are some of the prettiest wedding purses and clutches from David's Bridal, Macy's, Nordstrom and more.
There are a few go-to retailers brides can always count on for stylish fashion finds, especially BHLDN and David's Bridal. With offerings ranging from dresses and shoes to lingerie and even decor, these two stores have literally got you (and your bridal party) covered from head to toe. If you're in the throes of wedding planning and haven't completed your bridal look yet, don't stress. Thanks to Black Friday deals and Cyber Monday sales on the horizon, there's a pretty good chance you'll be able to score a deal on the wedding dress (or accessory, etc.) of your dreams at these bridal destinations. Last year, BHLDN featured up to 70% off select styles, including gowns starting at $500, bridesmaids and party dresses starting at $100, and accessories starting at $30. Oh, and brides-to-be scored free shipping on their orders. David's Bridal had select shoes and accessories up for grabs from $4.99 to $29.99, 50% off select wedding dresses, $29.95 robes, $99 Donna Morgan bridesmaids dresses, and $299 select Truly Zac Posen wedding dresses. On Cyber Monday and Tuesday, they also gave shoppers 20% off online orders. Suffice it to say, we think this bodes well for 2018 deals. Ahead, we're highlighting our favorite dresses, shoes and accessories on offer from David's Bridal and BHLDN, so get ready to swoon — and then keep an eye out for Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals. These stunning picks could just be among them.
