You've got the ring and the guy of your dreams. Now it's time to start planning your perfect wedding. Believe it or not, a quick glance inside your closet can tell you a lot about your big day. Think about it: Your wedding should reflect your personal style, so naturally, your clothes are a precursor to your celebration's vibe or theme.
Read on to find out what your favorite fashion store says about your wedding style.
Anthropologie, Free People, or ModCloth
A rustic-chic wedding is in the cards for this bride! She'll most likely tie the knot at a dreamy, nature-inspired ceremony, as seen above. The boho bride will probably be decked out in a lot of lace (think a flowy, vintage-style wedding gown from BHLDN). Her hair will either be worn down in long, loose, romantic waves topped with a floral crown, or be pulled back into a whimsy braid. For décor, expect to see some string lights and hanging lanterns, chalkboards, mason jars, DIY goodies, and bright pops of color.

J. Crew, Banana Republic, or Kate Spade
Whether it takes place in an old church, at a five-star hotel or a posh country club, this bride's preppy summer wedding will be the party of the year. Similar to her classic style, her ceremony will be truly traditional with a timeless color palette to match. Look out for lots of nautical stripes, polka-dotted details, bold patterns, and dainty bow accents at the reception, too. Her dress? An elegant strapless gown paired with pretty pearl earrings. She'll wear her hair up in a chic chignon or leave it down and perfectly curled. Naturally, all guests will go home with some sort of monogrammed wedding favor.

Nasty Gal, Opening Ceremony, or Karmaloop
Expect the unexpected at this edgy wedding! The dress (as well as everything else) will definitely be unconventional. Think short and white with a black leather jacket or a full-length gown in any color but white. As far as the food goes, this chill bride could care less about stuffy, sit-down dinners and seating charts. She'll probably just feed her guests buffet style to get the party started sooner. Her signature drink? Something cool, like a Whiskey on the rocks or a Moscow Mule, but her wedding band is what guests will be raving about for years to come.

Barneys, Net-a-Porter, or Intermix
This modern bride's big day will be every bit as fashionable and fabulous as she is. She might celebrate with a luxe ballroom wedding, say, "I do" at a renowned vineyard, or tie the knot in a historical building. No matter what though, her swanky ceremony will be like something straight out of a movie. When it comes to all the small wedding stuff, you can rest assured no expense will be spared either. From the lush flowers to the menu cards, her A-list wedding planner and the bride have more than got it covered. Foodwise, she'll be dishing out only the finest fare at a sophisticated dinner complete with live entertainment.
