8 Street Chic Wedding Day Ensembles for City Brides

Wedding Dresses

City girls are made up of a serious of dualities. They are chic and classic, yet trendy and effortlessly cool; modern and contemporary, yet as timeless as cobblestone streets. And city brides are no different. They straddle the line between the darling and daring — and they need a bridal ensemble that does the same. So, we've compiled our favorite cool-girl bridal looks in our October/November issue. These breathtaking gowns with elegant details like lace and couture beadwork juxtaposed with a sprinkling of fashion-forward accessories, and crisp, fresh ensembles will have both Upper East Siders and Brooklyn bohemians saying "I do."
