  1. Familiarize yourself with the ceremony aisle beforehand if you're planning to wear a dress and hat combo like this one by Karen Hendrix.

  2. A couple (kind of obvious) things you need to have in order to wear this Maria Karin wedding dress: ridiculously flat abs and really open-minded grandparents.

  3. Vegas wedding chapel, anyone? This sparkly number by Elizabeth Fillmore will do.

  4. We'd suggest a strict prewedding lunge routine and a serious dose of confidence before your big entrance in a dress like this one by Pronovias.

  5. The bold black fabric on this Vera Wang dress is textbook daring.

  6. Embrace your inner flower child before strutting down the ceremony aisle in a Pnina Tornai jumper.

  7. You definitely have to be in love with the gathered skirt trend to pull off this Karen Hendrix dress.

  8. It may offer full coverage, but the two-tiered and gathered skirt combo on this Karen Sabag wedding dress is best left for the more experimental types.
