Showstopping Wedding Dresses
Guests will stop and stare when they see you in one of these wedding dresses.
Topped with an off-the-shoulder tulle cape that rides the breeze in your wake, it sets the scene for a real celebration -- at Vizcaya Museum & Gardens in Miami, shown throughout this story, or anywhere you wed.
Open Lace Back
Thunder and rain on your wedding day? Fear not -- it's just Thor and his minions roaring their approval of this hand-pleated organza stunner.
The Details: J. Mendel gown; Stephen Russell bracelet (212-570-6900).
The thread work on this silk number's tulle overlay is every bit as eye-catching as a twinkling diamond necklace. Beauty tip: In warmer climes, skip the moisturizer. Use a matte, water-based foundation instead, and set it with translucent loose powder. For hair, don't fight humidity -- wear tresses in natural waves or a relaxed updo.
