Wedding dress or jumpsuit? Over to you.... 

Let me ask you a question. Would you be brave enough to get married in a jumpsuit?  
 
Sophie Turner was, when she married Joe Jonas of the Jonas Brothers in Las Vegas on 2 May 2019. The couple had attended the Bill Board Music Awards and got married in front of an Elvis Impersonator (who else) afterwards 
 
Super cool Sophie chose a Bevza ivory jumpsuit, which she wore with a wedding veil, as a nod to tradition. She paired it with gold 3.5 inch heel 'penny knot' mules from the achingly du jour Loeffler Randall. Sophie pulled it off of course and it was all filmed for insta (well, what else did you expect)

Bridal gown heaven.... 

One wedding is not enough of course, or is that wedding outfits? Royalty we know have at least two and Lady Gabriella Windsor had four (tut, tut, Lady Gabriella, that's what we call trying to upstage our beloved Princess Kate)  
 
You didn't really think that Sophie was going to sacrifice that lovely swishy feeling you get in a proper bridal gown? Of course not. Creative director at Loo Voo, Nicolas Ghesquiere did the honours and came up trumps I think 
 
Sophie was the poster girl for modest but revealing and proved beyond doubt that it is possible to be sexy without showing your bits. Go So!

Our top ten brides (chosen for effortless style and all over super-dooper bride-y-ness) 

We've only chosen three at the moment but watch this space... 
 
1. Kate, needs no other description, she was gloriously princessy but graciously modest all at the same time, we just love her  
2. Princess Eugenie, boldly went where no other princess had gone with her low-back and inspired many, we salute her 
3. Sophie Turner, didn't feel she needed to show her bits to be sexy, watch and learn ladies  
 
BTW, Loo Voo is nice if your other name is Sansa Stark and you've married a pop star, but if not, try Lychgate
