Winona Ryder-inspired Bride

Remember that movie "Reality Bites"? Let's fathom, for a moment, that Lailana and Troy actually got it together and, cut to the age 30, they're ready for the next big step. We're having a major '90s fashion moment right now, so I surprised myself when I started fantasizing about a wedding inspired by this exact moment in time, where "Reality Bites" and "My So-Called Life" converge.

I picture the alterna '90s-inspired bride getting married in a backyard wedding, with a whiskey cocktail hour, a farm-to-table family-style dinner and a surprisingly buoyant first dance to "500 Miles."

Reality Bites Wedding
A delicate, vintage-inspired dress get a major romantic boost from a halo of red flowers, red velvet Mary Janes and earrings/a ring that looks like they came out of a Dutch master's painting.

Dress by Carven, lip gloss from American Apparel, shoes by Casadei, headband from some store in England (boo), earrings from Banana Republic and rose gold ring from Etsy.

Our bride can let the Rayannes, Angela Chases and Janeanes of her life choose their own variation of the Courtney Love baby doll lace dress, in lovely jewel tones paired with mary janes.
