Jennifer Aniston has been engaged to Justin Theroux since August 2012, giving her plenty of time to pick out a wedding dress right? You would think! We had designer wedding dress sketches commissioned for her as soon as the news broke — after all, this is one of the best-dressed ladies in Hollywood. And yet, news on the gown front has been relatively quiet. As our favorite former Friend plans her second trip down the aisle, we're more than happy to offer her some insight into finding the right wedding dress.
Aniston is a well-known fan of slinky, streamlined silhouettes that showcase her perfectly-toned body. She also favors strapless and halter necklines — and can you blame her with those arms? But it's most exciting style-wise when she mixes it up with a short, funky cocktail dress or a princess-worthy ball gown like the one she wore when she brought Theroux to the 2013 Oscars. And it's anyone's guess what her favorite wedding dress style is since she never released a full-length photo of the dress she wore to her 2000 wedding to Brad Pitt.
With all of this in mind, we looked to the recent Spring 2015 runways to find Aniston a few dream wedding dresses fresh off the runways.

If any wedding dress designer is Aniston's spirit animal, it's Amsale. Filled with clean lines, sheath silhouettes, and minimalist detailing, every gown in the designer's most recent collection would be a knockout on Aniston. This one in particular stood out to us because of how it would spotlight her enviable figure. It's sleek, modern, and refreshingly simple — so very Jen.

This ballerina-inspired Vera Wang gown embodies Aniston's occasional desire to step out of her comfort zone. (This is a woman who wore dreadlocks to the Emmys once, after all.) This one has a neckline she'd love, and the voluminous tulle skirt is whimsical and festive, exactly how anyone would want to look on their wedding day.

Speaking of necklines Aniston would love, this delightfully refined Houghton wedding dress is an arm-flattering halter. It's reminiscent of her trademark style, with its figure-hugging shape and unadorned material. We especially love how the model has a small braid woven into her hair — just the kind of hippie-meets-surfer-cool-gal vibe that Aniston's perfected since she got together with Theroux.

Aniston knows how to flaunt what she's got, and she has a lot to flaunt. To her credit, she always picks one asset and lets it shine, whether it's her arms, her shoulders, or her legs. This sophisticated Marchesa is ideal if Aniston is planning a low-key or City Hall wedding. The illusion lace neckline is conservative and ladylike, but that short hemline would make her legs look amazing.
