We know Carrie Underwood's a busy gal, and we love her laid-back country attitude, but the girl has a wedding dress to choose. (It takes time to have a wedding gown made, even if you're an A-lister!) So we at BRIDES thought we'd help by selecting some fab looks for her upcoming wedding weekend. We took our cues from her personal style and the chic wardrobe changes she made at this year's Country Music Awards. Are you listening, Carrie?

Priscilla of Boston's retro, scoop-neck version of Carrie's plunging V-neck cocktail dress is a sophisticated choice for the rehearsal dinner. It's a bit more conservative, to suit a gathering of friends and family, and is perfect for a southern belle like Miss Underwood.

Carrie has always conducted herself with grace and poise, but she's no shrinking violet. If any bride can get away with wearing Lazaro's floral hand-painted ball gown during the ceremony, it's her. The daring print and flattering silhouette is a stunning combination.

Romona Keveza's two-in-one dress is a perfect reception frock—Carrie can start the party wearing the side train and rip it off when she's ready to dance! The asymmetrical neckline and crystal belt add flourishes of red-carpet glamour, and the fitted mini shape will make a petite girl like Carrie appear taller.
