Look 2: Mix and Match Bridal Party

DON’T obey the old rule that bridesmaid gowns must always match!  There are very few dresses that flatter all body types and your bridesmaids will thank you for taking their sizes and shapes into consideration.DO find dresses that you and your bridesmaids can love for a modern, updated look. Choose a color or print that you love and let your bridesmaids pick the style of their own dresses.  These dresses from Thread have the same materials but come in styles to flatter different shapes.  You can also vary the lengths on the dresses and mix solids and prints. DO make sure your groom fits in with the rest of the bridal party.  If your look is more casual, you don’t want him to look overdressed.  A modern suit in a summery color, like this one from Faconnable, looks perfect with an old fashioned detail like striped suspenders.  The result is both whimsical and sharp and the pink in the tie highlights the flowers on April’s dress.Bride dress – Thread; $775Bridesmaid dresses – Thread; $415 eachSuit, tie, suspenders – Faconnable; $1,295Tie –  Faconnable; $90Suspenders – Faconnable; $150 Shirt – Calvin Klein; $78Shoes – Grenson at Barneys New York; $295 Look 3: Dream Dress Bride

pick a dress that’s so trendy that in 30 years everyone will know the exact season you were married.  If you’re wondering whether those enormous puff sleeves or that glittered bodice might not be as in-fashion a few years down the road, you’re probably right.DO find an “of the moment” It dress that is timeless and classic. This dress by Monique Lhuillier is the type of dress every woman dreams of getting married in.  The look is incredibly modern but the texture is soft and romantic.  A voluminous skirt is offset by a form-fitting bodice, which really emphasizes your curves.  Ultimately, the most important thing is that you feel beautiful in your dress – and it would be near-impossible to feel anything but great in a dress this fabulous.Dress – Monique Lhuillier $16,500
