In lieu of the latest (almost) royal wedding of Pippa Middleton, the future Lady Glen Affric, and sister to Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, (that was a mouthful!) we’ve found some royal-inspired gowns fit to make you the princess of your own wedding.
A backless dress is a jaw-dropping statement, and one of our favourites. It’s undeniably sexy, ridiculously alluring and still offers that wee hint of skin mystery that will cause knees to buckle and grooms to swoon. Here are 10 stunning gowns from Instagram to inspire you to show off a little of your back skin.
When determining your perfect dress, it’s important to remember that we all have different body types, personalities, likes and dislikes. Finding the perfect gown (that puts your best you front and centre on your wedding day) can be a bit stressful. How can you know what looks good on you and where do you begin?
Understanding the different options available to you is the best place to get started. Check out these infographics to verse yourself on gown-speak before you head out to the stores. Knowing the various silhouettes and neckline names can help communication with bridal staff to ensure they offer you options that you know you’ll love.
The top designers in bridal have been unveiling their new collections at the spring 2017 Bridal Fashion Week in New York City. And what a glorious week it has been. This year the bridal rules have changed. Gowns are now more about personal expression and the versatility of the brides who want to throw caution (and past traditions) to the wind. Brides today have a different way of doing things, and they are definitely bringing sexy back. Check out some of these notable moments from the week.
You know The Try Guys, right? They’re Buzzfeed Video’s quartet of men who like to try a bunch of stuff that men typically don’t try, and they’ve received an unusual amount of Internet fame from it. They’ve tried it all. Women’s swimsuits, shaved armpits, edible lingerie, pregnant bellies, K-pop idol makeup, and of course, wedding gowns.
The Try Guys are silly, they cuss a lot, and they poke an extreme amount of fun at each other and whatever they’re doing at the moment. Probably not safe for work, but always good for a laugh.
And then there’s the dresses of today, like Vera Wang’s 2016 modern and evocative peek-a-boo gowns. The wedding gown has always been a representation of the bride. (Well, once upon a time it was about casting her family in the most favourable light, but it was still sort of about the bride.)

Over the last 100 years, wedding dress styles have been traditionally based on the popular styles of the day. If you were a bride in the 1920s, your wedding dress was probably short in the front with a longer train, and you likely wore a cloche-style veil. These fashion-trends-of-the-day continued right up until around the 1940s when it became popular to revert back to the long, full-skirted designs reminiscent of the Victorian era.

As a bride begins to plan her wedding, the dress is what is to impress. Brides dive into bridal gown magazines and visit stores, looking for the latest trends and fashions to grace the aisle on their wedding day. However, the latest fashion may look great on a bridal model but may not suit the everyday bride. Women are beautiful in all shapes and sizes, so every bride deserves a dress that looks best and suits her body type! (more…)
