First Kate Middleton, then Charlene Wittstock, and now Zara Phillips: it's been a ripe season for royal weddings. The queen's granddaughter married English rugby captain Mike Tindall in a relatively low-key wedding in Scotland. Zara wore a Stewart Parvin gown, with a chevron-pleated bodice and dropped waist. Her mother, Princess Anne, gave her the Greek diamond tiara to wear. Stylish attendees included Kate Middleton, who recycled a yellow jacquard jacket she's worn in the past, and princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, who both chose skirtsuits and fascinators. The queen, like Zara, also chose the British couturier Stewart Parvin, along with her trusty handbag. Click our slideshow to see all the royal wedding looks.
Before your best friend walks down that aisle looking fresh, innocent, and beautiful, you share a night of total debauchery, celebrating those last days of "freedom" before she gets hitched for life. It's called the bachelorette party, and the kind of party can vary — some do low-key weekends on the beach; others opt for a wild night in the city. Style wise, it's all about celebrating the power of girlfriends, and that means a dress to live up to your sexy self. We found cocktail dresses for every kind of bachelorette party, at every price point, from a $15 strapless number to a draped Halston dress on sale for $150. Click our shopping widget to see. And have fun at that bachelorette bash.

We hand the platform over to you: create a wedding day outfit, complete with shoes and accessories, that doesn't feature a traditional wedding dress.
