Bride and joy; GET A-LIST LOOK ON YOUR BIG DAY; STYLE ON SUNDAY.
Byline: with DEMELZA DE BURCA
FORGET fussy meringues and frills for your wedding dress and follow in the footsteps of some of our favourite A-list brides.
Traditional fairytale princess gowns can be stunning but they're not for everyone.
Take Beyonce's little sister Solange Knowles who delivered the biggest fashion moments of 2014 in her wedding attire.
The cape, the jumpsuit, that fantastic fro - it doesn't get more modern.
Solange told Vogue: "Everyone I worked with on the wedding are friends who I love. Everything was a labour of love."
Her floor-length gown with a long circle train and cape was made by her pal designer Humberto Leon for Kenzo.
You can get the look for less with Asos's cool bridal jumpsuit with detachable cape, a steal at just [euro]211.26.
Celebrity model Poppy Delevingne also ditched tradition for a more contemporary, trendier look at her nuptials - albeit in Chanel.
The bespoke gown was worn as a maxi dress for the ceremony but come evening party-loving Poppy whipped off its chiffon hem to leave behind a haute beaded mini.
If you're looking for a budget-friendly wedding gown you can have a boogie in, we love Self-Portrait's elegant Oblique dress ([euro]422.52) which boasts panels of diaphanous, contrasting lace on the column silhouette, while a double peplum effect breaks up the sheer hem.
Iconic wedding gowns don't have to mean ruffles and tulle which Kate Moss proved at her wedding to Jamie Hince in 2011.
The ageless supermodel channelled the 1920s and 30s in a decadent couture John Galliano flapper dress which took 701 hours to embroider.
Be a copy-Kate in Phase Eight's pretty Maeve sequin wedding dress ([euro]895 at Debenhams) or Ghost's bias-cut Sana gown ([euro]508.35) in heavy satin and complete the look with a Juliet Cap veil.
Former MTV star and fashion designer Whitney Port tied the knot last year and has single-handedly brought back the asymmetrical hemline.
Shunning tradition completely, she skipped the meringue and went for a pretty perfect pearl-adorned lace Ashi Studio design.
It's a trend we haven't seen in a while but on leggy Whitney, it's contemporary and cool.

The limited edition ivory dress reduced to [euro]794 at Davids-Bridal.com) is designed in a two-tier A-line style and detailed with tulle overlay to create a modern waterfall look with hem trimmed in elegant Chantilly lace.
