With all eyes on the most important wedding of our time next week, it's hard to remember that spring is also the unofficial kickoff to wedding season. Unless, of course, you happen to be newly engaged! To help make the wedding-planning process easier, you'll find some of the items recommended in New York's Summer Wedding issue in our latest three-part Shop-A-Matic. This time we asked the seasoned wedding pros over at Wedding Bee to choose their favorite twenty wedding dresses for our Gown Shop-A-Matic; we also found 115 dresses for which your bridesmaids won't resent you; and lastly, to complete the look, we have 120 accessory ideas for both the bride and groom, from bright and fun shoes to quirky patterned socks.
Robot Cuff Links by Ted Baker
Why We Like It: Nix the cuff links that come with the rental tuxedo in lieu of a pair with a touch of humor.
Faux-Wrap Maxi Dress by ADAM
Why We Like It: For a traditional bride with a modern venue, a minimal sleek column is the perfect anti-frilly bridesmaid option that's not overly trendy.
Starlight by Monique Lhuillier
Why Wedding Bee Likes It: "A keyhole neckline on this light-as-air dress manages to be both simple and unique all at once. It's perfect for a cliff-side beach wedding."
One-Shoulder Chiffon Dress by Priscilla of Boston
Why We Like It: For traditional brides who envision a romantic wedding, ditch the conventional strapless tea-length silhouette for a floaty one-shoulder cocktail style. The shorter length will flatter legs while the empire waist is forgiving for different body types.
Iris Top and Bardot Skirt by Melissa Sweet
Price: $2,475 for top and $3,475 for skirt
Why Wedding Bee Likes It: "Ripple ruffles and a bold neckpiece makes this our favorite pick for a dress that needs no extra embellishment."
