It’s that time of the year when Rockefeller Center transforms into a holiday wonderland and you have a good chance at catching the rink clear out for that one guy who decides to drop down on one knee to propose. If you happen to find yourself engaged (whether under a gigantic Christmas tree or otherwise) and clueless where to start, our fall weddings guide is the perfect place to begin. Not only are there venue ideas and advice from the experts on cakes, stationery, and more, but also — most important — there are suggestions on what to wear! We scoured the runways for 115 wedding dresses ranging from quirky floral gowns to classic numbers that hug and accentuate curves. We also sourced 110 dresses that bridesmaids may not necessarily re-wear but also shouldn’t begrudge you for making them buy. And finally, if you’re looking to finish off your wedding day look, we have 120 accessories from capelets to keep a winter bride warm and chic to wedding bands at all price points. Check out a few of our favorites below.
One-Shoulder Dress by Cynthia Rowley
Why We Like It: An asymmetrical neckline keeps the look sleek and modern especially in a shade like navy. Pair with a chignon or a side ponytail for a chic look that doesn’t scream “bridesmaid.”
Ivory Silk Jersey Gown by Derek Lam
Why We Like It: If the thought of making an appointment weeks in advance to try on a dizzying array of dresses in a one-hour time slot sounds completely overwhelming, try going off-the-rack. This sleek Grecian-inspired gown won’t require a six-month wait or countless alterations.
Pink Heel With Jeweled Detail by Miu Miu
Why We Like It: An eye-catching flash of color under a dress is an unexpected choice, and unlike a pair of white shoes, these pink heels can double as a sexy evening option post-wedding.
One-Shoulder Lace Gown by Oscar de la Renta
Why We Like It: For the romantic bride who wants a modern day spin on wedding-day drama, a dreamy one-shoulder frock with a cascading lace train that skims the body is a great alternative to princess ballgowns.
Golden Fleece Bolero by Taikonku
Why We Like It: Winter weddings have equally as stunning photo opportunities as summer ones, but shivering through each shot is less than desirable. Rather than catching pneumonia before the honeymoon, top a gown with a sparkly bolero that will photograph beautifully.
