As in everyday life, accessories set the mood for the big day. Drea rounds out the bell-sleeved embellished Rue de Seine dress (price upon request at A&Bé Bridal) with a Bohemian signature 12th House Venus pendant ($250 at shop/12thhousevenus) and Donald J. Pliner loafers ($250 at Tootsies)—perfect for dancing the night away.

Textured layers take traditional looks to the next level, adding interest and drama. Drea’s red fur jacket from Marissa Webb ($900 at Tootsies) complements the smooth illusion neckline of her Vera Wang gown ($4,500 at Neiman Marcus). Polish off the look with an Elemental Heart Medallion by 12th House Venus ($250 at and statement AEA gold pyramid ring ($1,680 at TenOverSix).

On Normandy, texture takes form in her intricate embroidered Needle & Thread top with sheer embellished cap sleeves ($300 at Tootsies) over a gathered silk taffeta Lea Ann Belter ball skirt ($1,955 at Neiman Marcus) paired with a stunning Emerald City ring ($6,000 at Molly Sharp Jewelry).

Embrace the drama of a classic black and white combination. Drea maximizes her sweetheart neckline Romona Keveza gown ($6,336 at Warren Barrón Bridal) with vintage Western vibes in a Nomia black duster ($595 at TenOverSix), stately black Lonesome Traveler Western bow tie ($38 at, top hat ($350 at Benny Jack Antiques), and Ginette disc ring ($665 at TenOverSix).

Normandy goes glam with a bold black silk Nha Khanh ball gown skirt ($630 at Stanley Korshak) blended with a single-sleeve striped silk Alexis blouse ($295 at Tootsies), and finishing it off with an unconventional black tulle Jennifer Behr veil ($350 at Warren Barrón Bridal).

Black can make for a stately evening wedding, especially if you opt for lacy patterns over heavy-handed solid looks. Normandy’s Nha Khanh chantilly gown ($890 at Stanley Korshak) provides texture and intrigue, while her elbow-length opera gloves and Big Dipper ring ($1,600 at Molly Sharp Jewelry) say ceremony.
