I gotta hand it to Olivia Palermo, professional clothes wearer and girl about town — she surprised me with her choice in wedding attire! Olivia married her longtime love, the equally good-looking and stylish Johannes Huebl this weekend, but instead of donning incredibly chic wedding dress, as you might expect, she wore a light cashmere sweater and white shorts with a satin and tulle skirt over top, all by Carolina Herrera. I love the look and think it was perfect for the low-key and small ceremony in Bedford, NY, especially given the rising temperatures. Plus, I think it’s cool when brides break the mold and wear something not-so-traditional on the big day. (I’ve always said I’m going to wear flip-flops to my wedding, not that I’m getting married anytime soon.) But what do you think of Olivia’s wedding ensemble? [E! Online]
At only four months old, little Aubrey may be the youngest person to ever walk down the aisle. Err, dragged down the aisle, I mean, as Aubrey is attached to her mother’s wedding gown. Shona Carter-Brooks is under fire after posting this photo from her big day on Facebook, which clearly shows her newborn daughter strapped to her Vera Wang wedding dress. Carter-Brooks defended her choice to add Aubrey as a piece of flair to the train of her dress, saying was “awake and well-secured” and that she was “covered by Christ.” Honestly, this is totally insane, but so long as the baby was safe, who the hell am I to judge a bride’s wedding dress alterations?

It’s that time of year again — wedding season. If you’re not planning your own wedding, you probably have one or 11 already on your summer calendar. I have three very different weddings this year and I’m looking forward to each and every one. I enjoy seeing how two people put their unique stamp on the event. As for the bride, I’m always excited to see a friend glowing on her special day. If you’re in the market for a wedding dress, or simply a sucker for a beautiful gown, take our wedding dress personality test! Keep reading »
As a child, whenever I closed my eyes every wedding dress looked the same: a strapless ball gown, with a long white veil. (Maybe that was the dress my Barbie came with?) In reality, wedding dresses (or jumpsuits) come in many shapes, sizes, and fabrics, the unique beauty of each being in the details.
I was lucky enough to be invited to David’s Bridal and Zac Posen’s fall previews and I have to say the dresses were stunning. As a married woman, I found myself pining to get married all over again just because of the all the potential fashion moments! Then Katie kicked me in the shin and told me to leave some wedding dresses for the single ladies.
Unfortunately many of our favorites won’t be available until Fall 2014, but here are some examples of our favorite dress trends.
A close friend chose to wear a jumpsuit on her wedding day, and I cannot tell you how elegant she looked standing beside her husband. Not only was she radiant, she was comfortable in an outfit that reflected her personality. Many women do not feel comfortable in gowns, and that is entirely acceptable. With so many beautiful alternatives available, there is no need to shy away from pantsuits, jumpsuits, and rompers. It’s your wedding day; wear whatever makes you feel awesome.
Here are 10 jumpsuits that rival any wedding gown.
As far as we’re concerned, there are no rules when it comes to wedding dresses, but seasons can play a key roll in the type of gown a bride considers. Spring and summer brides seek lighter fabrics, like chiffon, and avoid heavy layers. And the cooler weather this time of year allows fall/winter brides to wear more structured fabrics, heavier beading, and lovely layered skirts without sweating the night away. Here are 20 wedding dress options for winter brides…
When Amanda, from Kent, Washington, began sobbing on the phone to a 911 dispatcher named Candice about her wedding dress that had been stolen on her wedding day, Candice knew she had to help. Keep reading »
Designer Victor & Rolf just launched a rather novel new wedding line. The capsule collection is called, appropriately, Married, and includes a wedding shirt dress. But like, a formal wedding shirt dress. It actually doesn’t look as bad as it sounds — and might be really great for something like a summer beach wedding. After all, you want a lot of freedom — and the option of wearing sandals — if you’re getting married in the sand. But is it too casual?
Check out the rest of the collection after the jump! [Fashionologie] Keep reading »
Finally, we have a full-length photo of Avril’s black wedding dress! In our poll yesterday, a slight majority of Frisky readers expressed distaste for the black wedding dress trend. I’m totally into the color (or lack thereof) of Avril’s dress and hubby Chad Kroeger’s coordinating black tux, but I have some other concerns about this photo. Mainly, how is it possible for a 14th century French castle to look exactly like the “hidden forest” background of my 5th grade school picture? Suspicious… [People]
Over the weekend, Nickelback singer Chad Kroeger tied the knot with fellow Canadian Avril Lavigne in a castle in the south of France. Pretty fancy, Chavril. The pair got married in a mega-gothy ceremony, with Lavigne in a custom Monique Lhuillier gown. A black gown. Black gowns are nothing new, of course; earlier this year, Shenae Grimes wore a black Vera Wang gown to marry her boyfriend, Josh Beech. And back in 1997, Sarah Jessica Parker wore black at her wedding to Matthew Broderick. All in all, colorful wedding dresses seem to be blowing up, but we’re a bit on the fence about all that black. It just seems a bit … dour? What do you think?
