Celebrity wedding dresses can be sources of inspiration. From quirky to classic, there’s a range of trends that celebrity brides encompass. Here are some of our favorite wedding looks!
After the Duchess of Cambridge’s world-famous lace Alexander McQueen gown, long-sleeved wedding dresses have made a serious comeback. When marrying Kanye West in Italy, Kim Kardashian selected a form fitting lace long-sleeved Givenchy dress. Adding a touch of extra sophistication to your big day, long sleeves are appropriate for any location and will always be seen as classy. They’re also perfect for fall or winter weddings!
Style Tip: Balance the long sleeves with a lower back or neckline, this will create an elegant yet modern look.
Short and Fun
Many celebrities who want to let loose and dance at their reception are opting for flirty cocktail-length dresses. Cheryl Hines’s knee-length dress at her wedding to Robert Kennedy, Jr. was eye-catching and comfortable. Keira Knightley’s wedding dress was a Chanel cocktail dress that she had previously worn to a premiere. You’re guaranteed to feel beautiful and free in your short wedding dress, and there’s always the possibility of wearing it again in the future!
Style Tip: Be sure to play up your fun look with matching accessories and a youthful hairstyle like a ponytail or a messy bun. This will complete your look.
Chic pant suits are a departure for the classic wedding gown. But equally stylish and svelte, they elongate the figure and make a bride stand out. Solange Knowles and Amal Alamuddin included pant suits as part of their wedding trousseau. Use this stylish look for your court marriage, rehearsal dinner or bridal shower.
Style Tip: Since this is such a modern take, keep your makeup and hair minimally styled. This will give you the sleek look your are looking for.
Actresses Kaley Cuoco, Jessica Biel, and Reese Witherspoon all opted to wear pink wedding dresses at their respective weddings. Wedding gowns in bright colors are perfect for the non-traditional bride who wants to show some personality and pizazz during her big day. Bright colors juxtapose wonderfully with all-white décor or light pastels. If you’d like to go a little more subtle, try Jessica Simpson and Piper Perabo’s approach of off-white metallic-tinged dresses with a lot of sparkle!
Style Tip: Wearing a colored dress is already a departure from the norm. Don’t overdo your look with too many statement accessories. Focus on highlighting the color you’re wearing.
