On your wedding day, consider the aisle your own personal runway. From traditional to contemporary and a little something in between, these fashion-forward looks will ensure that your walk is stylish and beautiful. We partnered with Henne Jewelers, Bridal Beginning and an array of other local vendors to design and showcase four distinct wedding fashion profiles. For this shoot, we thought beyond just attire. Jewelry, hair and makeup, bouquet styles and even decorations were thoughtfully chosen to enhance each profile and inspire a cohesive wedding aesthetic.

For the 21st century soonly-wed, an off-the-shoulder, puff-sleeve wedding dress and stacked diamond necklaces makes for a chic and effortlessly beautiful look. A champagne wall and trendy yellow flowers complete the modern aesthetic. A vibrant yellow and green bouquet from The Blue Daisy Floral Designs adds an unexpected pop of color to this classic style.

Inspired by simplistic beauty, this profile is refined yet contemporary. A traditional ball gown is modernized by an oversized bow, while pearl accessories accentuate the dress’s dainty trim. An ombre cake and a floral backdrop bring a dramatic flair to an otherwise elegant style. Dark floral prints and an ombre cake from Nami Bakes make this traditional profile trendy and modern.

Disrupt the status quo and skip the gown altogether — a jumpsuit is perfect for someone who wants to turn heads. The lace bodice and detachable skirt add femininity to the look, while a metallic heel and trendy balloon installation provide a touch of whimsy. Balloons aren’t just for birthday parties anymore. Veronica’s Balloon Design elevated the fun factor with this colorful and dimensional hoop design.

A dress featuring a striking floral and lattice pattern is ideal for the hopeless romantic who loves a bit of boho flair. Add rose-gold accessories, bold colors and macrame details and you’ve got a recipe for an enchanting bohemian celebration.
