The best way to stay cool during your wedding? A breezy dress! Photographer Xela Mandel thought about this when she married literary agent Luke Janklow on the beach in Turks and Caicos in a sheer wedding dress. According to Vogue.com, Xela's mother, shoe designer Cydney Mandel, also wore the dress when getting married nearly 50 years ago. Cydney and Xela's grandmother Barbara Berliner designed the dress, and it was made at the Beverly Hills Saks Fifth Avenue around that time. It was a perfect fit for Xela, with no alterations needed, and she made it tastefully sheer and modern for a beach wedding.
