All Of The Most Whimsical Wedding Dresses We Want To Wear From Couture Week
Each season, no matter our personal budget (or even relationship status), we look to Haute Couture week for all our bridalwear inspiration – and this year’s four-day event in Paris certainly didn’t disappoint.
Whether you’re putting together a trendy micro wedding, opting for an extravagant blow out or planning something in between, when it comes to the dress, it’s all about dreaming big. And where better to start than Giambattista Valli’s OTT layers of tulle, Zuhair Murad’s glittering gowns or Dior’s phantasmagorical creations? Even if all they do is convince you of the benefits of going for the exact opposite, and rocking the power bride look in a simple suit.
Most brides’ wedding dress reality is rather far from these extravagant looks, all of which have been meticulously made and embellished by hand with the most luxurious materials available. But there’s no harm in looking to these glorious creations for inspiration, and perhaps even choosing to incorporate a few elements into your own dress for the special day. A splash of contrast diamanté à la Chanel perhaps? Maybe a draped, Grecian-style tulle bodice as per Giambattista Valli? Or an all-over lace look from Dior?
Whatever you end up choosing for the big day, there’s nothing wrong with dreaming in the meantime…
