One of our favorite recent trends that we’re seeing on runways is tons of black and white! Or if you are a fancy lady, you might call is onyx and pearl. Either way, this look will start to make its way into more weddings, which we love. We always admire brides who look to fashion as the jumping off point for the wedding look! To go with the inspiration board below, be sure to check out one of our newest discoveries, Bride Mag out of Australia.

Their collection of wedding gowns and fashion is a perfect resource for those of you gals on the hunt for a fab dress! What we love is that they have SUCH a huge collection of gowns to browse through. When I was on a hunt for a dress for my own wedding, researching the right look was one of the hardest parts! I knew I wanted to narrow down favorites before shopping, because that makes the process so much easier—especially if you have a particular look in mind.

Some of our fave galleries include dress categories for sheath wedding dresses, romantic bridal gowns, peplum style, and lace dresses. In addition to bridal gowns, there’s tons of ideas for bridesmaids and groomsmen! Outside of fashion, Bride Mag also has an amazing collection of hair and make up galleries—like ideas for vintage makeup and summer bridal looks. You can also browse round ups of accessories and even tips on how to choose the right wedding shoes. So much good stuff, right?

We are absolutely obsessed with Bride Mag’s HUGE library of gorg gowns, beauty tips, and inspiration, so get over there and start your hunting.
