Whether you're a guest, bridesmaid, or even the bride, weddings are a perfect time to add a braid into your dressed-up style. They can add a touch of romance or bohemian coolness to your look, and there are a variety of ways to incorporate woven strands into your style.

Over the next few weeks, personal trainer and director at Rollex Health, Luke Istomin, is giving the all the brides-to-be out there 12 weeks to get toned.
Having a toned body doesn’t just happen by itself. It takes a combination of planned workouts, prepared meals, and hopefully a workout buddy (or a few) to workout with. To change your upper body, you need to move your lower body, so yes, I’m telling you to move! The more active and physical you become, the faster and better off your body will respond. Ready?
Erin McNaught married her beau, Elliot Gleave, in a private ceremony near Ballina in NSW on Saturday afternoon. English musician Elliot, better known by his stage name Example, has shared gorgeous wedding photos on Instagram, showcasing Erin’s custom-made Steven Khalil gown in all its glory. He captioned the picture, “This happened yesterday,” and posted a couple more cute and intimate moments. He also took a screenshot of Erin’s Twitter profile, which now lists her as Erin Gleave, writing, “This made me smile just now. What a lovely surname.”
While Example has been in charge of releasing their wedding pictures, Erin has taken the reigns with sharing snaps of their Bora Bora honeymoon, which so far includes delicious-looking cocktails and swimming in infinity pools against gorgeous backdrops.
The bridal trends for Spring 2014 leave room to try something a bit different. While gorgeous white gowns and traditional strapless silhouettes certainly made their customary appearance, it wasn't all run of the mill. Vera Wang surprised with black-and-white looks, finished with dramatic black opera-length gloves. Oscar de la Renta dipped into the colour wheel for a true "something blue," Reem Acra turned out cocktail minis topped with veiled umbrellas, and Carolina Herrera debuted a sexier kind of wedding-day ensemble (think deep V-front necklines).

Erin McNaught wed her British musician beau, Example (aka Elliott Gleave) over the weekend in a beautiful, French-themed B&B in the NSW hinterland region. The venue, Deux Balettes, set a romantic tone for the celebrations, but we have to admit it was the former Miss Australia's wedding dress that drew gasps. Special thanks to Example for sharing the beautiful pic! Erin tweeted last month that Sydney's bridal designer to the stars Steven Khalil would be the man behind the frock, and she also shared a sneak peek at her Giuseppe Zanotti for Kanye West wedding shoes! Step inside to zoom in on all the details.
Between dressing Australia's most stylish stars for the red carpet, putting the finishing touches of his gobsmackingly gorgeous 2014 collection, and sending his dresses down the runway at the Ultimate Wedding Planning Party last Wednesday night (phew!) we were able to wrangle a chat with bridal designer du jour Steven Khalil. Along with his trusty assistant Cathy, I hit him with wedding dress rapid fire! Poor guy. Step inside to see what the king of Sydney wedding dress couture had to say about everything from finding non-ugly wedding shoes to the most figure-flattering styles for your big day.

90210's Shenae Grimes and fiancé Josh Beech got married today outside London, but it wasn't the shock of the couple's very quick (read: five-month) engagement that got us. As soon as we laid eyes on her black Vera Wang gown, we had to put the question on blast: are you a fan of this very non-traditional wedding look? The dark creation — a fitted halter-style silhouette meets princess-worthy honeycomb tulle skirt from the Vera Wang's Fall 2012 bridal collection — certainly provided the perfect backdrop for her red rose-filled bouquet. But floral arrangement aside, Grimes's pick was an undeniably unique and unexpected approach to wedding couture. Are you into it? Or would you rather stick to the bridal white status quo?
