A Girl for All Seasons

For twists on conventional wedding day looks, draw style inspiration from winter, spring, summer and fall.

  

WINTER

Embrace the look of a winter wonder-land in a diamond white dress with rhinestone or sequin accents. Layers of light chiffon fabrics embody the crisp, whimsical spirit of the season.

SPRING

Channel the playful attitude of warmer months with a flirty hemline or an unconventional hue. Trendy additions like peplums and floral embellishments are sweet touches.

SUMMER

Champagne-colored dresses, reminiscent of  golden sunsets, show off seasonal tans. Summertime motifs and fabrics, like pleated rosettes and eyelet, mix well with ponytails for ultra-feminine looks.

FALL

Cream and ivory gowns complement the warm tones of later months. Take a walk on the wild side and search for options with long sleeves or shawls to avoid the autumnal chill.
