The aisle is the new runway.

While the big wedding and its guests are back in full force this wedding season, convention has been cast aside quicker than a bouquet toss, with brides and grooms saying “I do” to chic, creative ways that put their own stamp on wedding style.

The new matrimonial mantra? Individuality reigns supreme. When it comes to bridal fashion, the grand veil-and-train entrance will always have a home, but brides and grooms are bucking convention more than ever, and upping the ante on nuptial style with a more fashion-centric approach that has taken its influence everywhere from the runways to street style and Savile Row-influenced menswear.

Interestingly, there is one category that is leaning more traditional: home. Couples are into feathering their nests with a renewed desire for china, crystal and other key entertaining and home comforts. Let’s face it, there’s a good chance that today’s newlyweds are still working at home together!

So, if you’re walking down the aisle soon or your summer calendar is chock-full of invitations, we’ve assembled a chic selection of wedding offerings for brides, grooms and guests to love and cherish all season long.
