Some of my favs from Monique Lhuillier…the short one was adorable and the one below was kind of a messy chic, but I still loved it!

There have been a number of white dresses on runways from the most recent fashion weeks. Though they aren’t necessarily for brides, they sure are a refreshing departure from the standard gown. Alexander McQueen’s embroidered tulle and silk chiffon dress is a beautiful inspiration for the feminine, romantic bride.
I don’t know about you, but I have been stoked at the number of dresses with sleeves I’ve been seeing in weddings lately. It’s so refreshing to see something that isn’t sleeveless or asymmetrical. These are some of my favorites. – Brittany Watson Jepsen
Three cheers for Gwyneth Paltrow’s Oscar number! Her ode to Jackie Kennedy’s 1961 inaugural ball ensemble was such a refreshing change of scenery from a red carpet that often consists of a barrage of all-too-similar asymmetrical gowns. I thought it’d make a perfect choice for a daring bride. I’ve had my eye on Antonio Berardi’s cream cape from his pre-fall 2011 collection for some time now and since Gwyneth’s Tom Ford version isn’t available to, well, non-Gwyneth Paltrows, it just might do the trick. I paired it with some bright accents.
