Whether you just need some inspiration or want to tie the knot in one of these fabulous ready-to-wear outfits, have a look at our favourite creations from famous fashion designers:
Oscar de la Renta’s spring/summer 2015 collection also featured a white cocktail-style lace dress but it had long sleeves and a wide belt. He once again delighted us with some fluttery, colourful gowns adorned with delicate florals, but also presented some adorable feathered mini and maxi dresses with a hint of vintage flair. We also loved his strapless blush pink gown with almost invisible illusion neck and sleeves and delicate embellishments which was worn with lovely heeled sandals in the same shade.
With his gorgeous fifties-style lace cocktail frocks, Michael Kors proved that a crisp white sleeveless summer dress can be a great choice for a modern, laid back wedding. It features a chic leather corsage around the waist, while big floral patterns on the lace are bold and eye-catching. You can wear this dress at your beach or country wedding along with flat sandals and very natural hair and make-up.
One of New York’s favourite fashion brands BCBG also flooded the catwalk with white dresses which were very modern, but also delicate and feminine with plenty of draping and ribbons floating around the body. Max Azria described the whole collection as “bohemian-chic-luxe look” and the white dresses are just ideal for dreamy beach weddings.
British born designer Jenny Packham is well known for her glamorous red carpet gowns and opulent wedding dresses, and her latest ready-to-wear collection featured a lot of designs which would look great as bridal outfits. From elegant column gowns to relaxed tea-length styles, her best creations are adorned with intricate beadwork, while the lightweight materials makes it perfectly wearable during hot summer days.
Inspired by spring blooms and modern technologies, Carolina Herrera was very innovative this season and played with hi-tech fabrics and bold floral prints to create a truly stunning collection which is ideal for fashion-forward brides. Her white dresses feature clean geometric lines and punchy graphics with abstract floral motifs. We adore her deconstructed white ball gown with huge splintered skirt and a blown-up floral print.
For brides-to-be looking for unconventional and girly designs for their big day, Honor created a wonderful sixties-inspired collection that features many adorable white dresses. From romantic floor-length gowns to cute cocktail frocks, you have to admire delicate textures enriched with scalloped edges and embossed detailing, but also playful elements like big bows, small ruffles and tiny drops of vibrant colours on white fabrics.
Monique Lhuillier incorporated some of her bridal inspiration into her ready-to-wear collection and showed us a few lovely romantic gowns which could easily work on the aisle. We loved her white and gold shimmery sleeveless dress paired with metallic sandals, as well as her ethereal strapless gown in lavender blue.
Tadashi Shoji teamed long white skirts with white tops to create his unique bridal outfits which we think are extremely romantic and feminine. He used pleated fabrics, lace and embroidery to achieve that luxurious boho effect which could be your perfect solution for a summer wedding. His collection also features a charming short-sleeved tea-length dress in blush pink which is a great choice if you want an elegant alternative to a classical white wedding gown.
Zac Posen surprised us with an impressive range of wedding dresses on the catwalk which he dedicated to soon-to-be-married women. He used brocade and high-tech fabrics like neoprene-bonded crepe to create his sleek white dresses with long capes and sophisticated silhouettes.
