Modern weddings can carry on for days and feature multiple events, including the post-wedding brunch. This delightful event is more than an occasion for drinking mimosas and eating eggs Benedict: It's a stress-free occasion that takes place the day after the wedding when the newlyweds have experienced some much-deserved rest. The post-wedding brunch allows for out-of-town guests to say a longer goodbye and it ensures that everyone can discuss what they loved about the wedding.
So, what's a bride to wear to wear to the post-wedding brunch? We love a post-wedding brunch dress that's casual, fresh and lovely. We prefer ivory or white, whether it is a solid white or a white backdrop that features a delicate floral print. White keeps the bridal theme going, but it can have many incarnations, from a breezy sundress to to an elegant lace dress to a lightweight dress featuring embroidery. Here, we've made a list of gorgeous brunch dresses from Anthropologie, ASOS and Nordstrom. They range from casual to sophisticated, and any one will keep you chic during your post-nuptial bliss.
With Cinderella's dainty slipper in their collective memories, some brides seldom think about comfortable shoes on the big day. But there's no wisdom in wearing wobbly stilettos to an event at which you might actually want to dance. Modern brides are opting for practical wedding shoes that can be worn more than once, as opposed to extremely high-heeled shoes that leave their tootsies blistered on the honeymoon. Also, we get it: Some very tall brides prefer to seek out more sensible heels, including flats, wedges and kitten heels that may also boast cushioned footbeds and supportive straps. So if you, too, want to dance the night away at your wedding, check out this list of swoon-worthy wedding flats that are just as ravishing as 4-inch heels (and much more practical). These styles from ASOS, Nordstrom, David's Bridal and more will take you from the ceremony to the after party in blissful comfort.
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.
Luggage is a purchase you only make once every few years (hopefully), so it's important to shop wisely. While you're of course looking for quality travel gear that's durable and roomy, you don't want to go broke before you've even gotten to the airport. Wedding and honeymoon planning is expensive enough — so avoid spending a small fortune by shopping luggage from stores like Kohl's and Walmart. The luggage sets ahead are functional, fashionable and, best of all, affordable — they're all under $150.
Celebrating one's nuptials by the sea provides ample opportunity to choose from an array of effortlessly chic bridal gowns. Luckily, there are nearly as many alternatives to the traditional ball gown as there are grains of sands on the beach. More casual beach wedding dresses make use of sheer panels, openwork lace and ruffles. Simple beach wedding dresses include those with midi lengths that feel easygoing, yet sophisticated. Boho wedding dresses are another choice: romantic and dreamy like a tropical island. Meanwhile, short beach wedding dresses feel cheerily free-spirited while providing wedding-friendly frills.
Look for lightweight materials for your beachfront or destination wedding dress. Silk, cotton blends, crochet, chiffon and lace make for breezy beach dresses. While not explicitly bridal, many white or ivory cocktail dresses will work wonders in a beach wedding, plus they can be worn afterward on the honeymoon. Below, check out 15 alternatives to the heavily embellished wedding gown that instead are easy, breezy and downright gorgeous. Post-wedding, you can relax poolside, confident you were a thoroughly beachy bride.
