Kate Middleton certainly epitomized the princess bride, but her look isn’t for every woman headed down the aisle. In fact, many brides are abandoning any trace of a fairy-tale motif in order to maintain their everyday sense of style.
Designers, of course, many of whom have ready-to-wear collections, are more than happy to oblige. At the recent bridal shows, Vera Wang, for one, went so far as to offer 15 gowns in black and nude. Nicole Miller took more of an eveningwear route, serving up such understated styles as a strapless allover sequin gown. “My brides aren’t about froufrou, they aren’t about fitting the bridal mold,” said Miller. “They want their personality and personal style to shine through on their big day.”
