You want to look stylish on your wedding day, and you will. However, let's stop for a second and talk about comfort. As much as we love a great pair of heels (we do, trust us!), we tend to kick them off and opt for bare feet on the dance floor instead. In order to keep your shoes on for your entire day, we suggest pairing your dress with a fabulous pair of flats. So without further ado, see our top five favorite styles of wedding flats in the slideshow.

We understand why brides wouldn't want to take big risks with wedding day beauty (hello, these pictures are going to be around for a while!) but we love it when brides go bold. And making your lips the focal point of your wedding look only feels risky -- lipstick is actually about as tried-and-true of a beauty look as you can get. When you pair red lips with clear, glowing skin, rosy cheeks, and simple eye make-up, you get a look that's surprisingly sweet. Or dial up the drama with a hot pink or deep maroon lipstick. Here are some of our favorite lippy brides.

Black and white - it's a centuries old palette, yet every time we see a wedding using these colors we can't help but think how stunning it continues to look. We also love how easily the same colors can transition from classic to vintage by swapping out a couple of details. Even though we love this classic, we thought we would dream up a twist to this elegant palette: black and white complete with stripes and pops of pink (yellow makes for an awesome alternative too!).
Curious how it all came together? Check out what we've dreamed up in the slideshow.

It's a known fact: you will spend your reception toasting, eating, and dancing the night away with your closest friends and family. You will have a blast, but the downside is it does have to end. However, don't let your reception end with a final dance. Instead, consider slipping into a shorter dress for your getaway and plan for guests to cheer you on during a sendoff as you leave as husband and wife. Time and time again, couples say it's one of they're favorite moments. If your reception comes to a close during the day, plan for your guests to let a sea of balloons go, in your wedding colors perhaps, as you pass by or shower you in confetti (an easy DIY). On the other hand, if your band hits the final note under the stars, jump in on one of the latest trends and put on a fireworks show. We've rounded up our top five creative sendoff ideas, and there's more inspiration waiting for you on Lover.ly.

Neon is one of the most popular trends in fashion, but this trend doesn't have to stop at your favorite blouse. Instead, weave these colors throughout your wedding day palette. Whether your aesthetic is modern or rustic, start by largely including neutral colors, like white, which will provide a base so the neon does not become overwhelming. Then layer in pops of other colors, such as chartreuse, bright blue, and bright orange into your invitations, cake, linens, and favors. Creating an area with lounge seating is a perfect place to make an impact with your neon palette while also providing your guests with a place to relax. If you're not quite ready to take the full neon leap but love hot pink (we're fans!), choose a fun shoe option or add a bright wrap to your bouquet. We've rounded up a few options to inspire you in the slideshow, and there's more waiting to be bundled on Lover.ly.

In honor of the premiere of season 17 of "The Bachelor", we thought it was high time to talk about our not-so-secret-anymore obsession with the show. This season, 26 women from across the country are vying to walk down the aisle toward Sean Lowe. We have to say, we're smitten with this self-proclaimed family man already.
A viewing party is not complete unless we make guesses as to who we think will receive a coveted rose during the ceremony each week. Because the rose ceremony is such an integral part of "The Bachelor" and red roses are the epitome of romance, there can't be a better time than now to focus on bouquets filled with this flower. From classic formal options to more rustic arrangements, we've pulled together our top 10 favorite red rose bouquets for any wedding style inspired by "The Bachelor" in the gallery.
