Weddings, Fall 2011

The runways proved quite the muse for this issue -- from the ready-to-wear collections that rippled with vibrant colors and fresh looks to the parade of gorgeous dresses at the fall bridal shows. We were inspired by thed trends with staying power: the ones you'll love tomorrow as much as you do today. Fittingly, we packed every page with chic, wedding-worthy ideas to help you celebrate in style.
