Two is Better Than One
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s royal wedding was arguably the most celebrated nuptials of the year. And, in just two months, it’s already sparked a series of trends among brides near and far, from minimalist gowns to contemporary wedding cakes with a rustic finish. One of our favorite trends of the day was the custom his and her ceremony elements, notably two pastors and two choirs. This same spirit could be applied to just about anything on your big day, from the catering to the wedding traditions. Do you stomp on a glass or jump over a broom? Why not both! If you’re a couple with wildly different tastes or backgrounds, it’s a beautiful way to honor both parties.

Monochrome Mavens
Model Chanel Iman wed NY Giants star Sterling Shepard on March 3 at the Beverly Hills Hotel in California. The bride wore two different Zuhair Murad gowns, while her bridesmaids wore (gasp) white! This trend has been growing since Kate Middleton’s wedding to Prince William (remember Pippa?) but it hasn’t quite hit the mainstream market yet. To differentiate your look from theirs, consider cut and material. If you’re wearing lace, choose chiffon bridesmaid dresses; if you’re set on a traditional ball gown, think about pantsuits for your bridal party.

Futuristic Cakes

Tattoo artist Kat Von D and Prayers musician Leafer Seyer tied the knot on June 2 at the Beverly Hills Hotel in one of the most-talked about goth spectacles in recent history, complete with skull décor and a black dress code. One of the highlights of the big day was a five-foot vegan red velvet castle cake featuring video footage of the couple instead of a traditional cake topper. It may take some maneuvering on your baker’s part, but it’s worth the extra effort.

Full Circle
Twilight actress Ashley Greene said “I do” to Lokai businessman Paul Khoury in front of 120 friends and family in Nestldown, a picturesque grove of redwood trees in California, on July 6. The bride wore a custom Katie May gown as she exchanged vows in front of a statement-making circular arch lined with organic arrangements of pampas grass, blush roses, and
eucalyptus. The shape of the arch couldn’t have been more fitting—it symbolizes eternal and everlasting love. And it makes for one heck of a photo op!

New Gown in Town
On June 23, Game of Thrones’ stars Rose Leslie and Kit Harington wed in a romantic ceremony in Aberdeenshire, Scotland at Wardhill Castle, which has belonged to the Leslie clan for over 900 years. (Rose’s father is currently clan chief.) The actress wore a gorgeous long-sleeved Elie Saab gown with a classic boat neck worth $20,000, along with a floral crown and a traditional floor-length veil. If you’re getting married within the next year, this is going to be the silhouette for brides. The best part? It works with just about every face shape and body type!
