“You can’t wear white to a wedding.”, they used to say, but times are changing. Brides are getting more and more confident in themselves and want everyone at their wedding to look and feel their best. Now, that’s not to say you don’t want all eyes on you. It’s still your time to shine, but you don’t need to be the only one wearing white to make it clear who the bride is. You simply need a look that will set you apart from everyone else, a look that sets the tone for the whole day. A look that says, "I’m the main character." There are three easy ways to make sure your ensemble is the look to end all looks. First, take up as much space as possible-the biggest dress in the room wins. Second, add a pop of color–main characters always do something unexpected. And third, bring down the house with some serious sex appeal, nothing stops people in their tracks like a confident, sexy woman. We’ve rounded up some killer dresses that are serving some serious main character vibes…enjoy!
