Even though the season is halfway over, summer nuptials are still in full swing -- which is great news if you love cake and the occasional toss of a bouquet. And in the heat, I always give summer brides credit -- it's no easy task trumping down the aisle in those big, bustly, and heavy wedding gowns.
The dress is, after all, why we go to a wedding. Picking the right one is a HUGE deal. And it's just as important for brides who walk down the aisle for a second or third time.
You don't want something too frumpy, too frilly, or too reminiscent of your first gown. Right? Right. And you don't want to look like an overstuffed cream puff, either. Your dress should capture your new stage of happiness. So in the spirit of the season, check out six of our favorite fashionable and feminine wedding gowns that make any try at happy ever after a pretty one.
