For the Free-Spirited Bride
This couple—shot by The Quail & The Dove—embraced their personal style with every element of their day, from customized neon signs and calling on grandma to officiate their ceremony to each of their big-day looks. The bride's style—a Grace Love Lace deep-neck top and short bottom with tulle overlay—fit seamlessly with the laid-back, fun-first vibe of this Arizona wedding. An ensemble like this works for brides who love to show a little skin, but also want a bit of cover-up to separate the look from everyday wear.
For the Bride Who Wants Variety
Want to wear two different dresses on your wedding? Then follow this bride's lead. Instead of purchasing two potentially-pricey gowns, layer a skirt over your reception dress for a completely different ceremony look. Your guests will be none the wiser. This newlywed began with a strapless, princess look from dress designer Cicada. After the altar, up came the straps, and off came the Lace & Liberty skirt. Both gorgeous versions were captured by Railroad Productions.
For the Crafty Bride
This bride planned the DIY wedding of all of our dreams, complete with a two-piece dress that she paired together herself from two different retailers. Color us impressed. Corona Films videotaped the look, which featured two low-budget but stylish parts: a Forever 21 top and a custom Etsy skirt.
For the Bohemian Bride
This bridal look included two of our favorite bridal trends: an off-the-shoulder neckline and lace detailing. We were in awe and couldn't think of a more appropriate dress for this romantic winery wedding. The Grace Love Lace number was shown through the lens of Anchored Cinema, where the separates were relatively causal but still wedding-worthy. Plus, did you see how easy they were to dance in?
