The Most Memorable Celebrity Wedding Dresses Of Recent Years
Although tens of thousands of couplesacross the U.S. are postponing their weddings in 2020, there’s no reason why brides can’t continue to be inspired by celebrity wedding fashion. With access to unlimited funds and top designers, celebrity bridal style never fails to be stunning, memorable, and unique. In particular, Hailey Bieber, Amal Clooney, and Ellie Goulding have worn some of the most beautiful wedding dresses in recent years.
Hailey and Justin Bieberhad their wedding ceremony in September 2019 after officially getting married a year prior. For the ceremony, Hailey wore a custom floor-length, off-the-shoulder, lace gown with pearl beading designed by Virgil Abloh, artistic director at Louis Vuitton and founder of Off-White, a luxury street-wear brand. The stunning dress featured long sleeves, a sweetheart neckline, a mermaid silhouette with a long train, and a beautiful cathedral veil. The classic and elegant look was given a modern and edgy twist with the addition of “‘TILL DEATH DO US PART” stitched in bold block print towards the end of the veil. Hailey also had several outfit changes. For the rehearsal dinner, she donned a white mini dress by Vivienne Westwood, a Ralph & Russo halterneck gown during the reception, and finally changed into a simple Vera Wang slip dress and casual trainers in the evening.
Although George Clooney’s intentions for a surprise proposal at homedidn’t exactly go to plan, he’s been happily married to Amal Alamuddin since 2014. Amal’s flawless appearance on her big day went down as one of the most iconic celebrity wedding styles of all time and she continues to provide brides-to-be with timeless inspiration today. The dress in question was custom designed by Oscar de la Rentaat 82 years of age; it was the last piece he created before his death later that year. The gown was an off-the-shoulder, ivory design embroidered with pearls, beads, and diamanté accents on the bodice. It also featured a gorgeous lace overlay and a full skirt with a beautiful Chantilly lace trail fourteen-yards long. Amal reportedly paid $380,000 for the dress, which isn’t much compared to the $4.6 total cost of the wedding.
Ellie Goulding’s unique wedding day style provides perfect inspiration for brides looking for ways to personalize their bridal outfits. Ellie married Caspar Jopling last year in a bespoke Chloé dress designed by creative director Natacha Ramsay-Levi — it took over 640 hours to make! The long-sleeve gown featured a ruffled lace collar and striking silk tulle veil embroidered with Ellie’s and Jasper’s initials. For an extra sentimental touch, her radzimir petticoat featured hand-stitched White Roses of York with beautiful glass beading; this embellishment was a thoughtful tribute to Jasper, who grew up in York. After the ceremony, Ellie changed into a simple white off-the-shoulder dress designed by Stella McCartney.
Celebrity wedding fashion never fails to disappoint. Hailey Bieber, Amal Clooney, and Ellie Goulding will be providing brides with style inspiration for years to come.
