WEDDING GOWNS
Capri Gown by Melissa Sweet
Price: $2,800
Why we like it: Part of the dramatic-back trend, the dress also has cascading rosettes down the train.

Plaisance Gown by Anna Maier/Ulla-Maija Couture
Price: $4,800
Why we like it: Soft chiffon creates the tuxedo-pleating (a trend) and gives this dress a soft, ethereal feeling. Plus, it cuts away from the body, which means it's flattering on many body types and shows a floaty, feminine look for the modern bride.

WEDDING ACCESSORIES
Bead Drop Earrings by Simply Vera by Vera Wang
Price: $18
Why we like it: Affordable and re-wearable, the dark pewter earrings are perfect for an evening wedding since they add a subtle sparkle.

Grosgrain Evening Shoe by Pollini
Price: $445
Why we like it: If you’re going to buy accessories for your dress, skip the Dyeables and cheap wedding shoes to splurge on something that would look equally as perfect under a cocktail dress or evening gown a year from now.

WHAT TO WEAR TO BRIDAL EVENTS
Rehearsal Dinner: Metallic Rose Laura Shift by J.Crew
Price: $595
Why we like it: It’s a clean, classic dress. The white and silver are ideal for a rehearsal dinner.

Engagement Party: Lani Dress by Calypso
Price: $325
Why we like it: The bright fuchsia is eye-catching and flattering.

Bridal Shower: Paperbag Waist Dress by BCBG
Price: $288
Why we like it: This dress gives the illusion of being two pieces and is still polished enough for an elegant bridal shower.
