These designers know how to turn the classic white wedding dress into a work of art.


There’s no such thing as boring when discussing Vivienne Westwood. The quirky designer brings the brand’s iconic personality to classic white wedding gowns. From the couture line is the elusive, lacy number, while designer Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood charms with endless ruffles.


We can’t decide if we love Vera Wang’s Bridal Spring 2020 or Fall 2020 collection better. Both highlight statement pieces – gigantic corsages for spring and black headpieces for fall, but spring has a twisted fairytale feel to it, while fall adds a touch of goth-chic to the look.


Carolina Herrera’s Bridal Spring 2020 collection is really a sight to behold. The line has all the dreamy elements any blushing bride would dream of – ruffles, bows and delicately detailed lacy flowers – and yet, if you take a closer look, you will find a couple of sharp silhouettes that carry modern sass and attitude. Take note of the high collar detail and the pantsuit dress.


Guess who’s bringing ethereal veils back to the couture wedding scene? Elie Saab, that’s who. At a quick glance, it looks like the brand plays it safe with classic cuts and timeless shapes, but the finesse lies in the detail of the veils. From lush foliage to pearl-like sequins, if you want to cover yourself, it had better be with something pretty.
