Our Favorite Wedding Dress Designers
Many women begin the search for their perfect wedding dress by searching and reposting their favorite wedding dress designers on Pinterest in their high school years. Little do these women know that by doing this, they are already narrowing their search for their ideal wedding dress and style. Although the average bride can’t afford a designer wedding dress, she still uses it as inspiration. Here are five of our favorite wedding dress designers to check out for some wedding dress inspiration.
The queen of bridal fashion with an eye for the unique, Vera Wang has been a leader in the wedding fashion industry since her initial launch in the early 2000s. Her most recent bridal collection for the spring of 2020 draws inspiration from the garden. Unique layers, lace prints, and specifically placed flowers create an exceptional flow resembling that of a river. We love Vera because she’s not afraid to overstep the boundaries of wedding attire. Many of her dresses are light ivory, but it is common to find primrose prink, mauve, lavender, and sage-colored dresses and accents in her gowns.
Oscar de la Renta
Oscar de la Renta’s Spring 2020 collection, which was on display in New York Bridal Fashion Week this past April, showcases 14 new looks ranging from a satin white jumpsuit to a mini dress with an array feathers inspired by the roaring ‘20s. Renta’s fun and free-spirited designs inspire many brides with their versatile designs and simplistic approach to photography. He sticks with the traditional white dress but varies the length, layers, and fabrics. A bride using Oscar de la Renta’s bridal collection as inspiration is looking for a subtle glam wedding dress.
Modern-day fairy godmother (or godfather in this case), Paul Vasileff, owner and designer of Paolo Sebastian, has unquestionably made his mark in fashion. Many women fantasize over his designs because each one draws inspiration from a fable or fairytale. Any fashion princess idolizes Paolo Sebastian due to his combination of flowers and sheer fabrics creating a delicate look. Wearing a Paolo Sebastian, or a dress inspired by him, requires a minimalistic hair and makeup look, allowing the dress to do all of the work.
For the bride looking for a dress to indulge in her romances, Monique Lhuillier creates a depth and dimension of romance that is enchanting. Her long-sleeve dresses are timeless and her dramatic capes, high-low hems, and detachable skirts are unique accessories that pair well with the modern bride. She transforms classic silhouettes and white floral prints into a contemporary classic. You will feel like Meghan Markle if you decide to use Monique Lhuillier as inspiration for your bridal gown.
Maggie Sottero offers three designer labels under her name that appeal to a variety of bridal budgets. We love Maggie because she produces luxurious options for every bride but at very reasonable prices. Many of Maggie’s designs incorporate the use of white lace and a silhouette that hugs the body. She has bridal collections for every season, every style, and every type of bride. Her eye for detail and stitching shows in all her gowns in conjunction with her diamond white traditional fabrics. If you’re looking for an affordable wedding dress designer who resembles that of a luxury designer, Maggie Sottero is the designer for you.
