    If you're going to go preppy, why not go all out? We love how this groom combined a tan seersucker suit, pink gingham button-down, a madras bow tie, and a peony and berry boutonniere.

    If you're having a fall wedding, keep your groom warm with a three-piece tweed suit (the vest will provide extra insulation).

    Suspenders are making a major come back ever since Ryan Reynolds wore custom leather ones at this wedding to Blake Lively. Choose a solid or patterened pair of suspenders that match his suit.

    Tip: If your summer wedding is on the casual side, keep your groom cool in a vest instead of a full-sleeved jacket.

    Whether you’re traveling halfway around the world or to a neighboring state, getting your wedding dress there safely is a top priority.

    Traveling By Plane

    Most airlines advise not to place valuable items in checked luggage, therefore, a carry-on or protective garment bag are your next options. (Tip: Fold layers of tissue paper into your wedding dress. This will help keep the wrinkles and discoloring away.) Check with your airline’s policy on bringing a wedding dress on board. They may allow you to store it in a closet or overhead bin. However, you can’t always rely on the flight attendant to store it properly in a closet or overhead bin. Consider purchasing a plane ticket for your wedding dress or better yet -- if there are open seats on your flight, it doesn’t hurt to ask the flight attendant if you dress can fly for free. 

    Traveling by Car

    You don’t want your wedding dress squeezed between loads of luggage in the trunk. Instead, drape it flat across your luggage in a protective garment bag.

    Unpacking Your Wedding Dress

    If you pack your wedding dress in a carry-on or protective garment bag, bring a travel steamer. (Tip: Test on white fabric before you use. You’ll want the steam to come out clear, so it doesn’t stain the fabric.) If you can’t bring a travel steamer, hang your wedding dress in the bathroom, turn the shower on full blast with hot water and watch the steam eliminate any wrinkles.

    5 Figure Types, 5 Perfect Gowns

    1. Long & Lean 

    Hoping to make a boyish figure look a little more feminine? Ruched waist detailing and halter straps are two fail-safe ways to create the illusion of curves at the waist and bust. Extra flouse in the skirt adds to the flirty vibe. Gown: Demetrios Illusions Style 3194. 

    2. Busty 

    Contrary to popular belief, the best way to downplay a larger chest is not to completely cover it up. Instead, opt for a gown with a sculpted upper bodice and a medium coverage V-neck. If possible, have the straps tailored to ensure maximum uplift. Gown: Demetrios Destination Romance Style DR185. 

     

    3. Petite 

    Big ball gowns can quickly overwhelm a small frame. If you're willing to buck the tradition of a long skirt, we absolutely reccomend going short. A more compact dress will ensure guests see you instead of seeing what you're wearing. Gown: Demetrios Young Sophisticated Style 2856. 

    4. Strong Arms 

    A high neck and prominent arm cut-outs are the best way to show off sculpted shoulders and biceps. If your arms are your strongest asset, consider a gown with a scuba-style halter silhouette. Gown: Demetrios lissa Style 535

    5. Hourglass 

    Pairing a deep V-neck with a full skirt draws eyes in to the smallest part of your body: your waist. Gown: Demetrios Ilissa Style 545.

    Today we're taking a (mental) vacation from the rain with a beachy glam guest ensemble perfect for a tropical destination wedding. Statement earrings and metallic heels dress up a breezy one-shoulder dress, and a neon straw clutch is the perfect finishing touch.

    We consider this an elegant yet easygoing option for a garden-inspired rehearsal dinner. While many brides opt to wear white to this soirée, we think a dusty tan rose works just as well. Here we paired it with floral heels and plenty of mint embellishments for a polished look you can still relax in.

    This is a fun, colorful motif for any spring or summer wedding. Add a little to your bridesmaids with a necklace or some earrings, or go full-tilt in a faux wrap dress. Either way, it's a winning look!

    A hot summer wedding calls for a strapless dress with a long, easy-fit skirt, don't you think? This look is perfect for a carefree beach bride who still wants to radiate a little elegance. Keep accessories consistent: a bevvy of flora-inspired gold jewelry dresses things up, and gladiator sandals in the same tone will keep you standing (and dancing!) long into the night.
