PHOTOS: 10 Bridal Jumpsuits You Can Shop Right Now

BHLDN's Coral Jumpsuit

BHLDN’s Coral Jumpsuit

It’s hard to believe that it was back in 2014 when bridal jumpsuits first became a thing. Two years later, the wedding dress alternative is still going strong, and if this month’s Bridal Market is any indication, it’s definitely here to stay.

It was J.Crew’s lace bridal jumpsuit that first caught our eye in 2014, and once that style hit the market (and once Beyonce approved the look), it didn’t take long for other bridal brands to experiment with the trend as well.

Over the years, we’ve seen plenty of designers incorporate jumpsuits into their bridal collections, and the most recent shows (for spring/summer 2017) were no different: Everyone from Elie Saab and Carolina Herrera to Monique Lhuillier and Christian Siriano sent so-pretty jumpsuits down the runway.

Watch: Kanye’s Latest Speech-Interrupting Venue: A Wedding!

You know, every once in a while, Mr. Kanye West forgets himself and shows the world just the slightest glimmer of a sense of humor—and even more rarely, perhaps, a bit of self-awareness. Well, he displayed both in a funny little incident at a wedding over the weekend, and today we find ourselves in the weird position of having been made to giggle … by Kanye West.

On Saturday, Kim and Yeezy were at the wedding of their friend and club owner David Grutman, when ‘Ye got up and reenacted his infamous and obnoxious interruption of Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, with magazine publisher/wedding toaster Jason Binn playing the part of T-Swift:

PW Reader Ring: Dana & Alex!

Dana's ring!

Dana’s ring!

The couple: Dana Ross and Alex Veston, from Delran.

The ring: My ring has a round diamond set in white gold with a diamond halo and diamond band. Alex designed it at James Jewelers in Parsippany—he hand-picked the stone in the shop and then they custom-ordered the ring.

We never went shopping together, though I had mentioned I liked round diamonds. It ended up being exactly what I would have picked out if I had gone my self!

WATCH: An Inside Look at the Makings of Oscar de la Renta’s Spring 2017 Bridal Collection

You saw how excited we were to announce that Oscar de la Renta’s gorgeous wedding gowns were once again available here in Philly. (ICYMI: Elizabeth Johns in Ardmore’s Suburban Square is now the exclusive carrier of the brand in PA.) We’ve long been fans of the late designer’s fashion house—which is now under the direction of the talented Peter Copping—and it seems the designs are only getting more beautiful with each passing season.

Just last week, Oscar de la Renta’s Spring 2017 bridal collection hit the runway at Bridal Market, and once again the new gowns were romantic, ladylike and quite varied in style and silhouette (you can check out all the looks here!).

Obviously the finished products are the best part of any bridal collection, but it’s also really fascinating to see the work that goes on behind-the-scenes in preparation for the big debut. Harper’s Bazaar joined Copping for a tour of his NYC headquarters to give us all an inside look at the makings of Oscar de la Renta’s latest batch of bridal gowns—and we thought any of you ladies with your eye on an Oscar gown would appreciate it as much as we did.

For many brides-to-be, the months and weeks leading up to the Big Day are laden with beauty treatments galore—and it goes well beyond the expected wedding-day hair and makeup: There’s waxing, brow shapings, lash extensions (and refills), spray tans, facials designed to tighten, brighten and smooth your skin to baby-like perfection. It’s a lot, and let’s not forget the diets, cleanses and strict workout regimens to get your body in tip-top shape, too.
