Tiffany Copeland Wears White Gown For Fall Wedding: Below Deck

Last September, Tiffany Copeland took to Instagram with some sparkling news. Flashing a princess-cut diamond that boyfriend Evan Jones had just slipped onto her finger, the Below Deck Mediterranean alum made it official: She was engaged!

Fast forward just over a year, and the former marine biologist was standing under a rose-clad altar, looking like a total dream in a floaty white gown.

Tiffany and Evan wed in an outdoor ceremony this October. The wedding took place at a North Carolina ranch, and the pictures showcased Tiffany’s gorgeous gown against a backdrop of autumn trees and sunlit fields. (But of course, there was also some water nearby: The couple said their vows in front of a placid lake.) 

The bride wore a strapless dress with a sweetheart neckline and a cascading, ruffled train. For her beauty look, Tiffany opted for an elaborately braided updo, and let a few romantic, wavy

How The Crown’s Costume Designer Made Diana’s Wedding Dress

Amy Roberts, The Crown‘s costume designer, did an impressive job re-creating Princess Diana’s iconic wedding dress. Emma Corrin, who plays Diana Spencer, will be wearing the dress for the royal wedding scene with Prince Charles (Josh O’Connor) in season four of the series — and Netflix recently shared some new details on the making of the iconic replica.

Princess Diana’s original ivory-silk wedding dress worn at Buckingham Palace on July 29, 1981, was designed by Elizabeth and David Emanuel. It featured a 25-foot train, a 153-yard tulle veil, three-quarter-length puffed sleeves, and ruffles along the neckline and back of the gown. Netflix shared on Twitter that, for The Crown‘s re-creation, Roberts “wanted to pull in many of the style choices and create the same spirit of David & Elizabeth Emanuel’s original design, but make something new.”

Netflix added: “Without access to the original patterns, Amy collaborated with David

But it wasn’t just the soft, petal pink hue and curve-hugging silhouette that

What Is a Mantilla Wedding Veil?

While most veils are simply a fashion statement, mantilla veils are full of rich history and are traditionally rooted in romance-language cultures. Spanish, Latin, and even Italian brides have been wearing this look on their wedding day for hundreds of years. The veil’s elaborate elegance transcends the passing of time and looks as stunning in ceremonies today as it did centuries ago.

What Is a Mantilla Wedding Veil?

A mantilla wedding veil is a timeless, sophisticated finishing touch to a bride’s perfect wedding day look. The Spanish-style circular veil features a thick lace trim along the edge and intricate embellishments cascading down the front, framing the bride’s face.

“Mantilla wedding veils are circular veils with a lace trim around the entire edge, typically with a scalloped lace,” explains event planner Jose Rolón. “They are a popular style for cathedral length veils, but can also be shorter blusher or chapel lengths.”

What Should You Wear for Your Micro Wedding?

The coronavirus has forced many couples to abandon their 200-plus guest lists and opt instead for a virtual wedding ceremony or micro wedding. And with these changes also comes a shift in attire — somehow that elaborate ball gown you envisioned wearing before the pandemic seems out of context.

So what would be more appropriate for an intimate setting? Here are some of our favorite options, plus tips from bridal designers on how to choose a wedding-day look that’s perfect for a smaller celebration.

With so many micro weddings taking place outdoors, airy, romantic gowns are a popular choice. “Dresses made of fabric with movement and flow create a stunning juxtaposition against nature’s setting,” said the designer Claire Pettibone. “Surface textures like delicate lace, subtle beading and dainty embroidery stand out in natural light and photograph beautifully.”
