Picking your wedding dress is one of the most important decisions in any bride's life, but how does it work when you design clothes for a living?
It’s officially wedding season. Whether you’re planning your own wedding or just interested in the eye candy, the spring 2019 bridal collections have arrived — and they’re stunning. Designers from Lela Rose to Jenny Packham, two favorites of Kate Middleton , continue to justify that bridal pants are here to stay. But one designer, Naeem Khan , took casual bridal dressing to new heights, debuting a bedazzled bridal tracksuit. Though the most standout dresses are from designers who went outside the box. Vera Wang , an icon in the bridal world, did not debut a single white gown. Instead, Wang opted for dramatic hues and silhouettes that are tailor-made for a big fashion editorial moment. It also helps that the collection was shot by famed photography duo Inez & Vinoodh . But if there ever was a statement wedding dress, it would be from Wang. On the other hand, Elie Saab , another celebrated designer, successfully intermixes traditional style with modernity quite beautifully, resulting in wedding dresses that feel traditional and royal but also timeless. Ahead, see all the dreamiest wedding dresses from Bridal Fashion Week — from simple courthouse-style looks to the princess-worthy gowns you’ve always dreamed of.
