If you're planning a destination wedding in a warm climate, finding your dress just got a little bit easier. Go for a gown that's lightweight: not only will it keep you cool, but it will also be easy to pack in your luggage. Think chiffon and lace fabrics with airy details like illusion designs, pleats, and draping, and pair it with delicate accessories, like gold earrings, thin bracelets, and sandals.

As for your hair and makeup? A natural, low-maintenance look will fit right in at the beach (and last longer, too). After all, if you opt for tinted moisturizer and bronzer instead of heavy foundation, you won't have to worry about makeup melting off your face, and if you wear loose waves, you won't have to worry about an up do falling down — all the better to concentrate on enjoying the moment. Here, four dresses we're loving now.

1. If you've always loved the classic look, try this two-piece: it has the makings of a traditional dress (lace, a fit-and-flare silhouette) but the separates make it feel fresh and relaxed enough to wear on the beach. (Two-piece floral lace dress, $1,000, Casablanca Bridal)

2. This one's for all of you who are regulars at Reformation — you'll love this dress in one of their signature styles, complete with an empire waist and flutter sleeves. We also love the versatility of it: after the wedding, you can wear it again in the summer (or even on your honeymoon!) with a jean jacket and sandals — the perfect brunch ensemble. ("Georgette" dress, $388, Reformation)

3. A gown doesn't have to be big and sparkly to be luxe. This stunning number, made of silk chiffon and pleated by hand, is a lesson in subtlety. Plus — that open back? So chic. (Hand-pleated dress with silk-crepe band and silk-chiffon ruffle skirt, price upon request, J. Mendel)

4. We're obsessed with the illusion lace details on this dress, from the sleeves to the empire-waist bodice and even the back (check out a cool picture of it here on the website). Also a bonus? The fact that this gown is a touch more structured than the rest make it perfect to wear if you're transitioning from a more formal church ceremony to a laid back beach reception. (Lace dress with keyhole open-back detail, $2,300, Rembo Styling)

4 Fun Ways Real Brides Re-Wore Their Wedding Dresses After the Big Day

 Wedding Dresses, Wedding Ideas  Comments Off on 4 Fun Ways Real Brides Re-Wore Their Wedding Dresses After the Big Day
Nov 062016
 

Once you've found the wedding dress of your dreams and spent quality time in it on your wedding day, you may end up boxing it up and never putting it on again. But if you love your dress so much, and you've spent a pretty penny on it, there are indeed ways you can wear it again, without looking like the bride in the room. Here are four stories from real brides who shared where they ended up re-wearing their wedding dresses.

1. Halloween
"I had my wedding dress hanging in the back of my closet for 3-years after my wedding. I didn't know what to do with it and I figured I would probably never wear it again. One year for Halloween, when I was trying to decide what I should be, I put the dress on just for fun and then realized I was going to be a zombie bride. All I had to do was buy face paint. Was it an ideal way to re-wear the dress? No. But if It was a great way of saving money on a Halloween costume." — Larissa D., 35

2. To a White Wedding
"Oddly enough, a friend of mine had an all-white wedding, which meant all guests had to wear white. For my wedding, the dress I wore was sleek and simple. I took it out of the garment bag and re-wore it to her wedding. I think out of the 50 women there, at least four others did the exact same thing." — Paula D., 30

3. On My Anniversary
"On my 10th wedding anniversary, I took my wedding dress out of the box it was in and put it on. It hardly zipped in the back but it was such a cool feeling wearing it again. I loved my dress and must have spent a couple of thousand dollars on it. I had the idea that it would be fun to re-take wedding photos in our clothes from the wedding. So my husband put on his tux, we hired a photographer, and we took new wedding photos in our old outfits. It was a lot of fun." — Heather R., 38

4. To a Party
"I got my wedding dress shortened so that It was above my ankle. I had a simple dress to begin with but the dress did have a train. I cut that all off and it looked like an elegant white dress. I wore it to a summer garden party and nobody noticed it was my wedding dress. When I told people, they didn't believe me until I pulled up a photo from my wedding and showed them." — Claire S., 29

J.Crew Discontinues Its Popular Bridal Collection And Everything Is On Sale Now

 News, Wedding Dresses  Comments Off on J.Crew Discontinues Its Popular Bridal Collection And Everything Is On Sale Now

Sound the alarms because J.Crew is killing its reasonably affordable bridal line which, after 12 years in the business, has dressed many a bride and bridesmaids.

According to BuzzFeed, the company is "relaunching a new dress collection in the spring, and moving away from traditional bridal gowns and bridesmaids dresses." But what does this meaaan?! Gone are the days of mismatched bridesmaid dress styles in the same J.Crew-stamped color?

Apparently the bridal sector simply wasn't economically viable for the company, at least according to Racked. "The brand's collection of bridal gowns, bridesmaids dresses (even jumpsuits and crop tops) were always front and center in its catalogues, and even anchored an Upper East Side store," the website wrote. "But over time, J.Crew's bridal business became more of a burden than a boon, according to a source close to the brand. The category proved to be inefficient, financially speaking."

Even though this news has hit us pretty hard, there is a silver lining to all of our disappointment. The prices on both wedding and bridesmaid dresses have been cut by 30 to 70 percent on their website! You better hurry though — once the inventory is sold out, they're done. Run like the wind! And by run like the wind we obvs mean check out these deals and online shop 'til you drop.

Take for example this body-flattering strapless gown made out of jacquard fabric. It was once $1,350, but the price has been slashed to $979.99, which is before the 30% code is even applied.

And bridesmaid dresses are even more of a steal. Many of the styles were priced above $200 and have now been knocked down to a low $99. Umm, can you say score?

As for the company's plans on going a more nontraditional route in the bridal sector, Racked reported, "J.Crew said it couldn't share many details but did say to expect the classic J.Crew aesthetic: Feminine prints, bold colors, and fun florals." Eeek! We cannot wait to see what they come up with!

The New Wedding Dress Shopping Delivery Service Brides NEED to Know About

While heading to a bridal salon is an exciting adventure (The choices! The accessories! The excitement of finding The Dress!), wouldn't it be amazing if you could try on wedding dresses in the comfort of your home? Just imagine: Your appointment would be as long as you want, you could bring as many friends as you can fit in your living room, and you could sip champagne and nibble on snacks between dresses — not to mention avoiding stripping down to your skivvies in front of a stranger! Well, your dreams are about to come true, and then some.

Meet Floravere, the first custom wedding gown company delivering dresses straight to your door. The company is the brainchild of Molly Kang, a former consultant and corporate strategist who, frustrated by the antiquated process of shopping for her own bridal gown, set out to redefine the wedding dress shopping experience. Says Kang, "A wedding dress is one of the most special purchases a woman will make, yet the process of shopping for one hasn't been updated to reflect the needs of modern brides." She envisioned a way to purchase a luxury gown the same way she shops for the rest of her clothes: online, directly from the producer, and with no appointment necessary.

The result is an opportunity to shop for a custom — and customized — wedding gown in the comfort of your home. Gowns are designed and crafted by former artisans from Monique Lhuillier, Dior, Zac Posen, and Reem Acra, so you know you're getting a stunning and high-quality product. You're also getting amazing perks. Because the dresses are crafted exclusively for Floravere (and there's no storefront involved), all gowns cost under $4,000. Every gown is made to order, so you can tailor the gown to your own style, from changing the sleeve or train to adding monogramming and special details. And it gets even better! Instead of the typical turnaround time of six to nine months, your bespoke Floravere gown will be delivered within 10-15 weeks. Thats four months or less!

Here's how it works: Select up to three styles from the collection (named after fabulous women of literature to boot!) to be shipped to your door in their signature Bride Box (a service that's complimentary with any purchase). Then, invite your friends, pop the champagne, and throw a try-on party to choose the gown that's right for you. Then, return the samples and head to the site to order your gown. They use standard dress sizing instead of bridal sizing, and provide handy tips for measuring to make sure your fit is as close to perfect as possible.

Now on to the good stuff! Here's a peek at Floravere's collection of seven gowns, sure to fit almost any bridal style and available now!

J. Capulet
This flowing silk chiffon gown is all about star-crossed romance. The hand-draped drop sleeves are removable, so you can dance your heart out once the ceremony is over. The option to add a thigh-high slit makes it totally modern, or stick with the classic A-line skirt and let the sheer bodice serve as your dose of sexy.

A. Hall
90s minimalism at its best, this slinky silk number is tailored and draped to perfection. A high neck, paired with a plunging sheer back, is both sleek and sexy. If you want a little more modesty, you can raise the back for slightly more coverage.

F. Daza
Individually embroidered blossoms and swirling vines over Chantilly lace harken back to this gown's Spanish inspiration. The slim skirt is endlessly flattering and the sheer illusion neckline (with either a sleeveless or long sleeve design) and creamy hue tie it all together.

R. Gilmore
The sweetheart neckline is totally classic, while the huge hand-embroidered flowers add a dose of modern drama that Rory would love. Instead of lay-flat lace, the flowers are 3D for eye-catching texture.

H. Golightly
Floravere's take on a ball gown, this dress is sleek and structured, with seaming that's a couture bride's dream. Silk Mikado gives the dress some shape, while optional pockets(!) are perfect for stashing your lip gloss and a few tissues for the ceremony.

E. Bennet
It looks classic, but this lace-and-tulle dress is hiding a sweet surprise: The tulle skirt is removable, revealing a lace mini dress for a night on the dance floor. Speaking of lace, it's from the same mill that made the lace on both Kate Middleton and Grace Kelly's gowns.

S. Ohara
This gown is perfect for a bride who wants some shimmer. Delicate illusion sleeves and a fitted sweetheart bodice are covered with hand-sewn crystals and beads, while airy layers keep it light and flowing instead of bedazzled and heavy.

Do I Have to Wear Shapewear Under My Dress?

Bridal Shapewear Basics

Every bride wants to look and feel her best on her wedding day, from finding a super-flattering wedding dress to perfecting her hair and makeup with a trial (or two!). For many brides, that also means finding the best smoothing, supportive shapewear to make her wedding dress fit and fall properly and flaunt her figure. But while shapewear may make you look your best, those suck-it-in garments are not always so comfortable. If "beauty is pain" is a mantra you have no desire to adhere to (or you just want to be able to eat your wedding dinner comfortably!), do you have to wear shapewear under your wedding dress? Here's what our experts have to say.

Shapewear is 100% optional, on your wedding day as well as any other day of your life. If you love how it makes you look and feel, go for it! But if the thought of squeezing into something constricting beneath your already structured, boned, zipped, and buttoned gown makes you shudder, skip it! The smile on your face will be much more genuine if you're comfortable in — and under — your dress.

When you're trying on dresses, keep your undergarment opinions in mind. Let your consultant know if you'll be skipping the Spanx so she can help you find a style of dress that will look fabulous on your body no matter what. We love the way gowns with fuller skirts allow you to wear whatever underwear you'd like. Bring on the cozy cotton! And if you have a bustline that needs some support, either look for silhouettes that allow you to wear a bra or consider styles that have boning and structure built in.

During your fittings, your seamstress will want to make sure you have the underwear you'll be wearing on your wedding day. Consider shopping for a few different styles in case what you thought was seamless and no-show is actually visible beneath your gown. If the dress you fell in love with didn't have enough structure or support already included in the design, your seamstress can help you add cups (or even sew in a strapless bra!) and adjust the seams and fabric so they are as flattering as possible.

Then, instead of bracing yourself for the moment you'll have to shimmy into your shapewear on your wedding day, revel in the fact that you won't have to peel it off at the end of the night!

Rustic, bohemian, beach, vineyard, vintage, preppy, formal — the bridal style options are endless, and so are the wedding dress options to go with them. Whether you find yourself dead set on a bohemian beach wedding, or are a glamorous bride-to-be looking to wow on the big day, your wedding style and venue can have a big impact on the wedding dress you choose. But don't set out on the wedding dress shopping journey with your mind too made up — the same style of dress can work for multiple locales, and wedding vibes. We've partnered with our friends at Allure Bridal to help you navigate the waters of wedding dress shopping for your bridal style.

Rustic and Romantic
You've booked the perfect vineyard, or the ideal barn that turns into a perfect reception spot, now it's time to find the right dress. Lucky for you romantic styles that suit this type of occasion are everywhere right now! Focus on romance with details like lace, exposed buttons, and touches of pink and embroidery that can really glam up.

Beach and Bohemian
Just because you're saying "I do" with your toes in the sand doesn't mean your wedding dress can't be extra special. Elegant easy sheaths are the perfect choice for a beach affair, but that doesn't mean you can't accentuate your curves in a bodycon trumpet gown, or embrace your inner fashionista with plenty of glitz and glamour courtesy of embroidered beading and lace. Make sure to keep things light and comfortable by avoiding heavier fabrics — you don't want to be sweating your way through your first dance, do you?

allure-style-boho.jpg

Formal and Glamorous
Have you always pictured yourself as a Princess Bride in a big ball gown? Embrace your inner Cinderella but do it in a modern way — with interesting details like an open back or illusion neckline and sleeves to keep things ultra glam and just a little sexy. If you know you want a formal affair but don't see a Princess in site, it's all about a mermaid gown in a really beautiful fabric and details that scream luxury. Look for figure hugging styles in embroidered lace that shows off amazing craftsmanship, and perhaps look to top things off with luxury accessories like statement earrings, an incredible beaded shoe, or a fur capelet (so fabulous for a winter wedding!).

Traditional and Preppy
Trends come and go but a classic wedding dress is forever. If you're not into trends or glitz, and really want nothing more than a clean timeless look it's a no brainer — a strapless A-line gown in ivory lace is your number one bet. Focus on fit and fabric over anything else. If your dress fits you the way it should, it doesn't any other bells and whistles. Maybe just a beautiful lace veil to top things off, and don't forget classic diamond studs to finish things off.

How to Find Your Wedding Dress by Body Type

Whether you're petite, pear-shaped, hourglass, or athletic — wedding dress shopping can bring out every bride-to-be's insecurities. Finding the right wedding dress is all about embracing your shape and choosing styles that accentuate your frame. So when you walk into the bridal salon, it's best to be armed with what suits your figure, and not spend that precious hour slipping on styles that would be flattering on someone else. Together with our friends at Allure we're narrowing down how to wedding dress shop for your body type.

Plus-Size Brides-to-Be (Above)
There's no shortage of options for brides with curves these days. We recommend embracing those curves by choosing a dress with some structure (sheaths won't necessarily hug you in all the right places). Forget mid-length styles that cut off mid-calf and opt for a floor-length dress with little embellishment to create length. Long lace sleeves, a trend we — and Kim Kardashian — love, can also give the appearance of long slim ballerina-like arms, not to mention they are so chic and sophisticated.

Petite Brides-to-Be If you're on the petite side try to avoid overwhelming your small frame. Ball gowns can make you look like you were swallowed by layers of tulle, while airy sheaths and structured mermaid skirts will give you the illusion of curves and also a longer frame. Plunging V-necks were all over the runways, and for petite brides this is a great way to add some sexiness without going over the top.

Hourglass Brides-to-Be It's all about bodycon for the hourglass-shaped bride-to-be. Forget hiding your hips in a ball gown and make sure you are showing off your trim mid-section. A belted waist works perfectly for this body shape. Bohemian girls can still get the ethereal look of their dreams — just opt for a fit-and-flare style that accentuates your curves. Dropped waists can also be an hourglass bride's best friend.

Athletic Brides-to-Be
Lean and straight brides-to-be, you're in luck! You've worked hard for that athletic body so now it's time to show it off. No curves, no problem — show off your great legs in a mini dress or something with a slit up to there (think Angelina Jolie at the Oscars). Beaded embellishments and contouring seams on a body hugging dress can also help create the illusion of curves. When in doubt, opt for the trend that baffles brides-to-be — a crop top! Show off just the right amount of your toned mid-section by rocking a matching set for the big day.

Busty Brides-to-Be Finding the perfect neckline is the secret to the perfect wedding dress for brides-to-be with a larger bust. Off-the-shoulder necklines were the hit of the Fall 2017 bridal runways, and done higher they can subtly disguise a bigger bust, while still showing off curves and a super feminine decollete. If showing off those curves is number one your wish list — a demure V-neck is your best friend, and a major fashion hit. Another savior for big-busted girls is the illusion neckline — ethereal, demure, and sexy all in one!
