While French tips or any old nude polish may feel appropriate, there's an assortment of minimalist nail designs that are similarly classic, but with just enough individuality to keep you from feeling like every other bride.

If you're going for clean and simple, grow your nails out just past your fingertips, shape them round

over a pearly base polish brings to mind the chimes of Pachelbel's Canon.
