For better or worse, for richer or poorer (and yes, we believe it’s worth breaking the bank on a truly badass bridal trousseau), the days when a ceremony dress and a party dress would suffice for a fabulous wedding are officially over. Solange Knowles  — Beyonce’s younger sister, and a phenom in her own right — set a new standard for style-obsessed brides with a flair for the nontraditional at her recent New Orleans nuptials, complete with four wholly original costume changes (the jumpsuits! the capes! the Wonder Woman-worthy cuffs!). Fortunately, Etsy sellers are already offering up similar pieces for like-minded brides. Read on for fashion-forward ideas for your own big day.

Rolling up to the ceremony on matching white bikes (with a bike bouquet!) takes casual cool to a new level. We’re still in awe of Solange’s chic take on the bridal jumpsuit: practical, sexy, and figure-flattering.

For the wedding portraits, Solange went minimal and regal in a floor-length look that was anything but Ice Queen. Pair a long tunic or frill-free vintage dress with wide brass cuffs to achieve a similar effect.

So long, solitaires. Solange’s cuff-style dual diamond ring is destined to become a new classic.

The reception is for dancing and cocktails. An asymmetric mini (or a one-shouldered playsuit like Solange’s) allows for easy movement without sacrificing drama.

For all of Solange’s wedding weekend looks (and there are more!), check out Refinery29 and Vogue.com.
