Bebe Wedding Dresses Are Surprisingly Chic (PHOTOS)

bebe bridal collectionJust so we're clear, I would rather light myself on fire than wear anything from Bebe. The brand is not for me. Satin, stretchy club wear doesn't appeal to me in the same way that skinny jeans and boyfriend oxfords do. But that's what makes fashion, and fashion design, great, right? There's something for everyone. My distaste for Bebe is someone else's distaste for Zara. It's what makes the world go round.

That said -- the part about self-combustion -- I will admit that Bebe's new bridal collection isn't terrible. In fact, there's a dress or two I wouldn't be adverse to possibly trying on. Then, of course, there are the high-shine silk one shoulder dresses, but we'll ignore those messes for now and focus on everything not-horrible a Bebe bride could be.

  • Lace Princess Sleeve Wedding Dress, $2,500


    Look familiar? It's clear this was inspired by Kate Middleton's Sarah Burton wedding dress -- not that there's anything wrong with that. Duchess Catherine looked great in it and now you can, too. Thanks, Bebe!

  • Swirl Ruffle Asymmetric Silk Dress, $289


    This dress is short and sweet, just like I like my wedding ceremonies. Perfect.

  • Off the Shoulder Tulip Trumpet Wedding Dress, $1,800


    This one screams Bebe to me, which is why I had to include it. I'll refrain from comment.

  • One Shoulder Silk Wrap Gown, $278


    This is a dramatic look for a less than traumatic price. Not bad, not bad at all.

  • Halter Charm Wedding Dress, $850


    This is a tough sell. This isn't a flattering cut for many women, and the clingy fabric is only going to make things worse. Oof.
