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.
The white ball gown remains the iconic wedding dress for a princess bride. Think: Cinderella, Grace Kelly and Jacqueline Kennedy. Such wedding gown imagery is bound tightly within our collective memories, yet modernity has brought many a twist to the time-honored silhouette. One is the wedding jumpsuit. Another recently popularized style is the two-piece wedding ensemble, a new choice for the iconoclasts among us. The two-piece bridal outfit allows a bride various options. With a crop top and skirt combo, fit brides can subtly (or not so subtly...) flaunt their washboard abs. A voluminous skirt paired with a simple, structured top creates a stunning display. A slinky skirt and form-fitting top can allow for movement within structure. Here, we've made it a cinch to find your two-piece wedding gown by listing amazing options from Nordstrom, Etsy, David's Bridal and more.
You might be the star of this show, but when your ring bearer makes his way up the aisle, step aside: All eyes will be on him. And this diminutive darling should carry a pillow that is as stylish as the wedding itself. The wedding ring bearer pillow carries a special symbolism, since it is the vessel upon which the couple's wedding bands sit. Today, many artisans have focused on creating gorgeous ring bearer pillows that live up to this important task. If your nuptials will be on a farm, the pillow can take rustic inspiration. For a glamorous affair, there are pillows trimmed in bows, lace and crystals. Garden or beach-inspired weddings can be well-served by pillows that bring a combination of fabrics and trims reminiscent of the sea. Whatever your wedding style, here are the 10 sweet ring bearer pillows from Etsy, David's Bridal, Amazon and more.
Every love story is unique: For the bride, an alternative engagement ring becomes her outward symbol of a one-of-a-kind love. Unusual rings are embraced by the bride who requires statement-making jewelry, and her choice of style runs the gamut from quietly minimalistic to exuberantly ornate.
Sure, the white round diamond has long been the classic engagement ring, but many gorgeous options exist beyond that typical style. Some are rendered unique due their setting design, be it modern or vintage-inspired. Others stand out due to their metal, ranging from rose gold to a highly-polished platinum band. A constellation of gemstones is there for one's choosing, including deeply red rubies, ink-toned sapphires, blushing morganites and opalescent pearls. Here, we've selected the most stunning alternative engagement rings from Nordstrom, Macy's, Neiman Marcus and more.
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!
