39 Wedding Terms You Should Know

We know wedding planning can be stressful, especially when you don’t quite know what you’re looking for. In some ways, shopping for a tuxedo or a wedding gown can be a lot like buying a car for the first time: Everyone else seems to know a lot of jargon you've never heard before like "cummerbunds" and "fascinators."

Here at The Feast, we've compiled a soup-to-nuts glossary of all the terms you'll likely encounter as you (or your friends) start shopping for the perfect wedding outfit, from empire silhouettes to a Windsor knot.

Hopefully this easy-to-use compendium will ease some of your pre-wedding jitters, and so the next time you get asked if you prefer a chapel or cathedral train, you’ll know just what you’re looking for.
