High slits, plunging necklines, a bare back—who says weddings need to be prim and proper? Sexy sophistication has made its way down the aisle.

Out with the white, in with the nude. A gold embroidered-lace V-neck gown will have you shimmering at an evening reception. Feather shoulder accents and a grosgrain sash offer original extras.
