A vintage wedding dress silhouette has been showing up regularly on the runway lately; if it looks familiar, it may be because it reminds you of the dress Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis wore when she married JFK. With a full skirt, nipped-in waist, sweetheart neckline, and off-the shoulder or cap sleeves, this look is so flattering and fashionable. Go full-length for a more formal wedding, or try the fun tea-length version. Either way, you'll be continuing in the tradition of many beautiful brides from the 1950s, 60s, and today.
