Jane Lynch's outrageous role as cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester in Glee might lead you to believe she'd head down the aisle in white sweats. (After all, who could forget the episode when she attended a swing-dance lesson wearing a zoot suit?) For her upcoming nuptials, however, we'd love to see Jane show off her tall, slender frame in a few feminine stunners.

Just because she's a 40-something bride doesn't mean Jane can't rock a traditional dress. Although Oscar de la Renta's silk-and-tulle ball gown is reminiscent of a princess silhouette, its tailored A-line shape tones down the frill factor.
Getting married later in life gives Jane more leeway to ditch the classic ball gown in favor of something a little more original. While the ruched, asymmetrical neckline and heavily beaded waistband on this Farah Angsana gown could overwhelm petite frames, it's definitely a head-turner for tall gals like Jane.
This discreet Manuel Mota lace number begs to be worn by a sophisticated bride. The chic high neckline provides extra coverage, but the sexy front slit still reveals some skin.
All these dresses can be seen in the June issue of BRIDES, on newsstands today.
