Jennifer Aniston’s engagement to Justin Theroux was this week’s big news in celebrity wedding world. We immediately started brainstorming about which wedding dress the fashionable star would wear on her big day (something modern, form-fitting, and sleek, most likely), and found that there were several gowns from Romona Keveza’s new collection that would certainly suit her. The four gowns pictured above were our favorites – the two white gowns are from Romona Keveza’s bridal couture collection, and the two colored gowns are part of her evening gown collection. And yes, we do think Jennifer might wear a hue other than white for her second wedding – and black and red are two of her favorite colors for her red carpet appearances.

Are you a fan of these gowns for Jennifer (or yourself)? Check out the rest of Romona Keveza’s wedding dresses here.

Red, White, and Blue Wedding Dresses

Posted by Kim on Jul 02, 2012

We are feeling awfully patriotic here at WeddingWire HQ this week, and wanted to share a little red, white, and blue wedding dress inspiration. Of course, there are an abundance of white wedding dresses out there, but we found it interesting that two of the most popular non-white wedding dress colors from the most recent bridal market were red and (pale) blue.

V-Neck Wedding Dresses: Which Do You Love?

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?

Pick a Venue, Pick a Wedding Dress

Posted by Kim on May 23, 2012

One of the best pieces of wedding-planning advice we can share is: Don’t go shopping for your wedding gown until you’ve booked your venue. Sure, it may be tempting to go shopping as soon as you have that ring on your finger, but avoid the pull of the bridal salon until you’re all squared away on your wedding site. Here why: Different types of wedding dresses look best at different types of venues. If you’re getting married on the beach, for example, you probably don’t want to wear a big, heavy ballgown. And vice versa – a barely-there sheath might not be appropriate at a grand house of worship or ballroom. Check out these examples from our Fashion Ideas section:

If you’re having a wedding in a large space, like a hotel ballroom or a house of worship, look for gowns that have the grandeur to match, like these ballgown wedding dresses.

Marrying outdoors, a garden or backyard perhaps? Choose a romantic wedding gown with an ethereal feel and feminine touches.

Destination weddings call for lightweight beach wedding gowns that aren’t overly beaded or structured and show just the right amount of skin.

And if you’re planning a casual soiree, perhaps at City Hall or a restaurant, a short wedding dress will fit in perfectly. These styles even work well for rehearsal dinners, or as cake-cutting or “going away” dresses.
