Switching up your look between your ceremony and reception can be a fun way to keep your guests guessing. Of course, you don’t have to go to the level of someone like, say, Kim Kardashian, and wearing three completely different dresses throughout the evening, but there’s nothing wrong with a little switcheroo! Fortunately, designers are making the ceremony to reception dress swap a little easier (and perhaps more budget-friendly) by creating two-in-one wedding dresses, like the Anne Barge style above. Looks like a traditional ballgown, but the grand skirt is completely removable to reveal a super-cute lacy mini. Check out a bunch of brand-new two-in-one wedding dresses here and tell us your thoughts on wearing multiple dresses:

When searching for a wedding dress, one of the first decisions you’ll need to make is to pick a silhouette. Do you want a full classic ballgown or a sleek body-hugging mermaid? Or maybe something in between? Try on a few dresses in each silhouette to see which looks best on you, and which would look best at your venue.  Check out some of our favorite brand-new mermaid wedding dresses, as well as some hot-off-the-runway ballgowns we loved. And while you’re at it, tell us:

Which silhouette do you prefer?

New Wedding Dresses: Badgley Mischka

Posted by Kim on Jul 05, 2012

Part of the fun of shopping for a wedding gown is the opportunity to try on lots of different dresses. Even if you think you might want to wear a super-princessy ballgown, try on a slinky glam gown just for fun, and vice versa. You never know, one gorgeous gown could change your mind! This season, we thought the Badgley Mischka collection truly exemplified how many varying styles there are. On one side of the spectrum, the designers showed some sexy Hollywood glamorous gowns, and on the other, more classic ballgowns fit for a royal wedding. Check out all of the new Badgley Mischka wedding dresses here.

Posted by Kim on Jun 26, 2012

Lots of brides covet a v-neck wedding dress not only because it’s flattering, but also because v-necks are so versatile. Whether you’re looking for a princess-y ballgown, a slinky, sexy style, or a beach-worthy gown, there’s likely a v-neck out there to fit the bill. We picked our favorite brand-new v-neck wedding dresses from the most recent New York Bridal Market (they’ll be available soon at a bridal salon near you), but we also want to know which v-neck style is your favorite?

New Wedding Dresses: Kelly Faetanini

Posted by Kim on Jun 21, 2012

Kelly Faetanini, who previously designed the Jewel by Priscilla of Boston collection, launched her new eponymous collection during the most recent bridal market. Kelly is known for her youthful and stylish designs, and this debut was no exception. We particularly loved the two styles pictured below, the Charlize (below, left), a tulle fitted gown with a removable illusion neckline (trend alert!) and pearl beading (trend alert part 2!), and the Adele (right), a wedding dress that mixes a classic silhouette (the ballgown) with modern details (the diagonal one-shoulder neckline).
