1. Modern romance

Dress: Lela Rose
The Lela Rose wedding dress is feminine and romantic in a gorgeous blush color, which is a modern twist on a traditional gown silhouette. It is a textured silk gazar draped gown with a gorgeous bustled back detail, and the modified A-line skirt is flattering for all figures. Add a chainmail beaded belt to give the gown an extra wow factor for the reception.

Tux: Tommy Hilfiger 25th Anniversary Collection
What's more modern than a black and navy combination? Show off your style confidence by this daring, European-inspired pairing by Tommy Hilfiger 25th Anniversary Collection. This tailored tuxedo from Tommy Hilfiger offers top of the line refinement for any formal occasion. The jacket is 100 percent wool with satin notch lapels and classic satin piping along the leg. The cotton spread collar is versatile enough for any suit or pair of dress pants. The navy silk satin tie adds just the right amount of contrast. A perfect compliment to a modern blush gown.

Retro glam

2. Retro glam

Dress: Lazaro
The Lazaro gown has a 1920s retro look that's glammed up with a crystal motif embroidered all along the dress. It's old-fashioned, yet sexy. The A-line skirt features a tiered chiffon ruffle-a big bridal trend-yet doesn't compete against all the crystal detailing. A sweep train adds that extra glam touch to the back of the dress.

Tux: Ted Baker
Bring back the days when of 1920's glamour with this three-piece tuxedo in black by Ted Baker London.  The peak lapels speak of global chic, and honor the elegance of more detailed bridal gown.

Classic elegance
3. Classic elegance

Dress: Paloma Blanca
While the champagne lace on the Paloma Blanca wedding dress gives it an elegant look, the open keyhole back adds a nontraditional twist to an old-classic favorite. This is perfect for a bride who wants a timeless look and doesn't want to wear a strapless dress. The fit and flare skirt slightly hugs the hips and a sweep strain can be bustled for the reception. A ribbon and broach embellishment at the waist adds a classic extra detail to the gown.

Tux: Kenneth Cole Black Label
Grooms can wear ivory, too! They should avoid bright white. ThisKenneth Cole Black Label tux is an updated classic-slim fit, notch collar, satin trim and a comfortable stretch cotton make for ease and elegance next to the bride's lace gown.

Sophisticated drama
4. Sophisticated drama

Dress: Monique Lhuillier
The Monique Lhuillier wedding gown is a dramatic way to make an entrance! It's totally over-the-top and makes a red-carpet wedding statement. Made of ivory silk Caricata satin, it's a figure-hugging trumpet gown with asymmetrical draping, which is surprisingly flattering around the hips. The show-stopping detail of this dress is definitely the rose-embroidered skirt, which ties in to extra rose detail at the bodice.

Tux: Bonobos
A Midnight tux by Bonobos in 100 percent gabardine wool and blue shirt elevate the style quotient here.  Add a dramatic flair with tonal plaid bowtie, suspenders and pocket square by Ernest Alexander. This look is gentlemanly, with a fun, preppy twist.
