True Blood actress Evan Rachel Wood married Jaime Bell surrounded by close family and friends during a small ceremony in California on Oct. 30. Wood wore a custom Carolina Herrera Chantilly lace mermaid gown with capped-sleeves and a ribbon waist detail.

“I am so happy for Evan, she is a timeless beauty, and her gown in Chantilly lace captures this perfectly,” Carolina Herrera told Us Weekly.

Here’s what we know: On her wedding day, Wood tweeted, “Words cannot describe the happiness I am feeling. Overwhelming.” She also tweeted that the couple’s wedding song was “(Today I Met) the Boy I’m Going to Marry.“–a classic from the movie Father of the Bride.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s engagement was no surprise this spring. However, details on the couple’s nuptials have been a secret until last week, when sources said Jolie will wear a custom dress designed by L’Wren Scott.

“Angelina wanted to go with someone who is not so obvious for designing wedding gowns,” a source told Grazia. “She’s been courted by some of the hottest designers on the planet, but having a big name isn’t important to Angelina. She wanted someone she could trust, and she most definitely trusts L’Wren Scott.”

Here’s what we know: Jolie likes to make a statement and show off her figure. Maybe she’ll wear a one-shoulder gown with a high-slit and jeweled embellishments similar to what she wore to the Oscars this year. Or maybe she’ll channel her inner-Bella from Twilight with a long-sleeved gown that has a cut out back and lace embellishments. What if she decides to follow in other celebrities’ footsteps and wear a colored gown? What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.

Jessica Biel was serenaded by future husband Justin Timberlake as she walked down the aisle wearing a custom Giambattista Valli Haute couture gown at her Italian wedding Oct. 19. Not to mention it was petal pink!

This isn’t the first time we have seen celebrity brides wearing a non-white wedding gown. Amber Tamblyn wore a mustard-colored dress at her Oct. 6 wedding to David Cross, and Anne Hathaway wore a custom pink Valentino gown at her Sept. 29 wedding to Adam Shulman. Let’s not forget Reese Witherspoons’ Monique Lhuillier blush-hued gown at her March 2011 wedding to Jim Toth. Does this make the colored wedding gown an official trend? What do you think?

WeddingWire Recap from New York Bridal Week

A few members of the WeddingWire team headed up to New York last weekend for Bridal Week, an annual event where all of the top wedding gown designers have exclusive runway shows across Manhattan. Think Fashion Week for weddings!

While a few of us were bouncing around to different private viewings, we also made Pier 94 in Midtown, New York City our home for the weekend. We were thrilled to be the show’s media sponsor this year; providing select designers with a private runway show, and guests of the event some R & R at a chic lounge full of treats from some of our generous partners.

Some of our favorite highlights, and special thanks, from the weekend were: 

  • WeddingWire hosted 11 designers on a Private Runway in the Fashion Theatre on Friday.
  • We invited all of the designers and attendees for a champagne toast and cupcakes on Sunday. The champagne and cupcakes reception was thanks to Georgetown Cupcake Soho.
  • Judith Leiber’s creative director Jana Matheson was in our booth for a Q&A on Monday for 2 hours.  The Judith Leiber bags were included as part of our Lounge décor for the full weekend so guests had a chance to ooh and ahh over them.
  • Our lounge was the spot for guests to “Power Up” and refuel. Along with ‘charging stations’ for laptops and phones, we offered a delicious candy buffet from Just Sweets, and Honest Tea provided a selection of over six teas throughout the weekend to hydrate!
We had an absolute blast and can’t wait for the Spring 2013 Bridal Market event!

If Their Wedding Was Today: Barack & Michelle Obama

Even though President Barack Obama will be participating in the first presidential debate Wednesday night against Republican nominee Mitt Romney, Obama has something else to celebrate–his 20th wedding anniversary with his wife, Michelle. On Oct. 3, 1992, Barack and Michelle Obama married at Trinity United in Chicago with around 200 of their closest family and friends, according to People.

“Twenty years ago today, I married the love of my life and my best friend,” Obama tweeted. “Happy anniversary, Michelle!” In response, Michelle tweeted back, “Happy 20th anniversary, Barack. Thank you for being an incredible partner, friend and father every day. I love you!”

On her wedding day, Michelle wore an off-the-shoulder, long-sleeved white gown. But if her wedding were today, what kind of dress would she wear? Here’s what we know: Michelle likes to make a statement with bold colors and body-conscious cuts that emphasize her figure. Maybe she would wear an empire, one-shoulder tulle gown, similar to what she wore to the presidential inauguration in 2010. Or maybe she would wear a short-sleeved, tea-length dress with a birdcage veil. Congrats Barack and Michelle!
