The 90s Film Making The Case For Wearing Black At Weddings

Four Weddings and a Funeral, 1994(Film still)

We’re taking style cues from Kristin Scott Thomas’ character, the sarcastic and stylish Fiona, in Four Weddings and a Funeral

“Isn’t she beautiful?” gushes Scarlett, played by Charlotte Coleman, in Four Weddings and a Funeral, as bride number one of the four in the film’s title walks down the aisle. “Scarlett, you’re blind,” replies Kristin Scott Thomas’ Fiona. “She looks like a big meringue.” Such is Fiona’s cutting, wry humour; her lines in the 1994 film deftly convey her sharp indifference towards nuptials. Four Weddings and a Funeral is a bittersweet, charming and quintessentially British – save for the presence of Andie MacDowell in the role of Hugh Grant’s Texan love interest Carrie – film that follows Charles (Grant) and his friendship group as they...

landscape-1479882369-landscape-1448920223-hbz-julia-goldani-telles-affair-00-index
We get you, winter weddings are tough events to tackle. The warm weather months get the most play when it comes to weddings, and by the colder months, you've exhausted your favorite options for dress-up and would rather spend weekends curled up in front of a fireplace or a Netflix binge. But, we'd argue that layers, sleeves, longer lengths and richer fabrics make it that much easier to add interest to wedding guest attire. From slinky gowns to shimmery cocktail dresses, take this opportunity to embrace the jewel tones, velvets and heavily embroidered looks for the pre, mid and post-holiday events you have on the docket. Here, 12 chic looks to suit every woman's style–and make you the best dressed...

What To Wear To a Fall Wedding, From The Shoes To The Dress

landscape-1502213193-v2-10

It doesn't take an American Express survey to let you know that you're hemorrhaging money on wedding season—your bank account probably already knows and doesn't want to talk about it. But the cool thing about preparing for a wedding is that if you find the *right* options (provided you're not a member of the matching Bridal Party troupe), you're good to go with your bad self. Below, colorful dress, shoe, and jewelry options that you'll want to wear way past the reception—primed for whatever your dancing, layering, and budget needs require.

The Wedding Colors Of Spring 2017

Curating your wedding's décor, tablescapes and overall aesthetic starts, first and foremost, with color (or lack there of). But tastemakers and trendsetters are understandably tired with the idea of wedding color themes–and we're the first to admit they can start to feel gimmicky. In planning her wedding, BAZAAR.com's Editor Joyann King steered clear of a palette altogether. "One thing that I really felt strongly about is I just didn't want a wedding with a color scheme–just stop it with the color schemes," she says. "I mean, color can exist around us, but I don't want to just pick navy and fuchsia and have a navy/fuchsia wedding." That theme-like feeling of a two-dimension color palette can easily feel dated, and colors...

Inside A Fairy-Tale Royal Wedding In Bavaria

PHOTO: Karl Anton Koenigs
While their titles might make Bavaria's newest royals seem completely unrelatable, Hereditary Prince Franz Albrecht zu Oettingen-Spielberg met his new wife Cleopatra von Adelsheim von Ernest in a remarkably ordinary way: at a friend's 30th birthday bash. The two were inseparable, and after a few years of dating, the prince got down on one knee and declared that the actress, model, and baroness would become a princess. Naturally, their nuptials were as regal and extravagant as the couple's names might suggest. The event took place at the bride's father's estate in Adelsheim, Germany, with a royal-packed guest list of roughly 800 attendees. Cleo, as her friend's call her, wore a custom-made gown by Milanese designer Luisa Beccaria, Vogue reports, topped with a diamond tiara befitting of a new...

Ciara and Russell got engaged in March and shared a series of super-cute proposal photos on social media. But why marry in England? Because it has castles that you can get married in, obviously. The lovebirds tied the knot at Peckforton Castle, Page Six reports, a 19th-century castle surrounded by 4,000 acres of forest in the area of Cheshire. We have to warn you, if you look at the castle’s web site, youwill fall down a hole planning your...
