If Mary-Kate and Ashley are any indication, it's pretty clear that the Olsens are a tight-knit family. So much so, that the twins' little sister Elizabeth got engaged to boyfriend Boyd Holbrook just two weeks after news broke that Mary-Kate was set to marry French banker Olivier Sarkozy. Initial excitement about a double-Olsen wedding aside, we faced an even bigger realization: These two affianced sisters are destined for wedding dress greatness. Mary-Kate is a style icon and is at the helm of two critically acclaimed fashion houses, The Row & Elizabeth and James, while Elizabeth is a young budding actress known for her effortlessly cool street style.

So, what will the fashionistas wear down the aisle? We have some ideas. Here, our top picks for Mary-Kate and Elizabeth's big day:

While her style has become more modern over the years, Mary-Kate has always been boho at heart — she and Ashley did pioneer the boho-chic craze of the mid-2000's. Currently, though, she tends to lean towards shapeless silhouettes in neutral hues with impeccable tailoring. Because of this, there are a few directions we could see Mary-Kate going in for her wedding.

One thing's for sure: Mary-Kate is definitely wearing a wedding dress with sleeves. This sheer long sleeve sheath Pronovias dress — with a collar! — is just bohemian, free-flowing and tailored enough to suit Mary-Kate's taste.

If Mary-Kate is throwing a more rustic and bohemian summer wedding, we can see her in this airy, layered spaghetti strap Houghton dress.

Next up: a silky Jenny Packham three-quarter sleeve dress with a keyhole neckline. Whether Mary-Kate chooses to tie the knot in New York or in France, this choice is appropriately sleek for a more formal urban setting.

Last but not least, we have a tulle and organza Naeem Khan with an illusion neckline. It's a little bit more out-of-the-box for the actress-turned-fashion-designer, but it boasts just enough embellishment to be a different choice for her big day. Though it still features the free-flowing silhouette we know she loves.

While Elizabeth's tastes are similar to her sister's, her wardrobe tends to feature more subtle feminine details. The younger Olsen also loves to play with shapes, often mixing structured pieces with the airy aesthetic. We looked for more minimal designs that feature just the right hint of romance.

Elizabeth would practically float down the aisle wearing this! Monique Lhuillier's pink silk sheath is structured with its straight skirt, yet the sweetheart neckline and on-trend blush hue make it a dash more girly.

Last, we think Elizabeth could totally rock this lace, asymmetrical crop top ensemble on her wedding day. A mix of tradition (um, hello lace!) and modern trends (crop tops + asymmetrical hem = cutting edge) this look sums up Elizabeth's effortlessly chic street style aesthetic.
