Dress Designers (from left to right): Maggie Sottero and Alfred Angelo 

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.

Accent your waist with a belt or sash, the go-to accessory to add both decoration and personalization to a wedding dress. Wedding gowns that are clean, with minimal or no ornamentation, allow brides to use the dress as a canvas to “decorate” and style as they see fit. The same dress can look vintage or modern, glamorous or simple depending on which bridal accessories are used to complement it.

Some wedding gowns are made with a belt to match, allowing designers to offer brides what they think will be a perfect fit. Here are some dress-belt designs from the runway, and bridal accessory lines you may want to check out.

Dennis Basso added a hand beaded and embellished belt to this strapless hand pleated fit and flare gown.

JLM Couture used horsehair, a stiff sheer material, enhanced with metallic beads, to add some personality to a clean ivory gown.

Alfred Angelo used a white satin belt with embroidery and beading front and center to further define a waistline on this basque waist ball gown.

A number of accessory designers hopped on the waist-detail bandwagon and are creating chic accessories giving brides more options to choose from, check out their designs for even more options:

Cover Up With One of These Must-Have Bridal Accessories

Posted by Bridal Market on Oct 14, 2012

A bride may want to order a cover up for her wedding dress because she wants her arms covered for a religious wedding ceremony, she’s getting married in winter or a cold climate, or simply that the cover up in question is so fabulous she can’t get married without it!

Brides still shopping for their wedding-day look may find it hard to resist the jackets, boleros, shrugs and other cover ups making their way down the Spring 2013 Bridal Market runways. Styles range from fur and faux fur, in white as well as other colors, sheer jackets, “pop overs” that literally pop right over you head in lace or tulle, and organza boleros with three-dimensional detailing.

Here you can see three different cover up styles that editors saw on the runways:

Alfred Angelo designed a Venise lace jacket with white bridal buttons up the back. One can easily switch from the solemn ceremony setting to the party atmosphere of a wedding reception in a matter of seconds.

JLM Couture showed a fur bolero with crystal embellished tulle inserts, the perfect accessory for a winter wedding even if it’s not snowing outside.

Exclusive to David’s Bridal stores is this embroidered tulle pop-over with three covered buttons in the back. The metallic thread adds a bit of shimmer to a bride’s wedding-day look.

Greetings from New York Bridal Market! Over the next several days, your intrepid WeddingWire team will be attending all the shows and getting a sneak peek of the brand-new dresses that will be sold at a salon near you in just a few months. Be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook to get all the minute-by-minute updates.

Even though Bridal Market has only just begun, we have already have started to notice several trends emerging. Most notably, while ballgowns are still a bridal runway staple, we saw lots of form-fitting silhouettes (mermaids and trumpet) from every designer. Check out these examples:

Confession from a group of WeddingWire employees: We went to see Breaking Dawn the day it opened. And part of our desire was definitely to see the much anticipated: Bella’s Wedding Gown.  Also, if you’ve read the books or seen the other movies, you knew that the wedding was going to be something out of this world, and it was, of course. I don’t want to spoil it anymore for those of you who haven’t seen it yet. But I had to at least share an image of the Alfred Angelo‘s replica gown (which also happens to be on sale right now for $799, click here for details!). Carolina Herrera designed the gown for the movie that Bella (Kristen Stewart) wore, but I must say this is a pretty close copy, and it is stunning!
