06 Dec 2018

Priyanka Chopra

What she wore: What didn't she wear! The Bollywood star wore not one but two wedding gowns to marry US singer Nick Jonas in Rajasthan, India. For the couple's Christian ceremony, the bride wore a custom-designed dress by Ralph Lauren. The bejewelled look was made up of a sheer long-sleeved gown embellished with Swarovski crystals, and a strapless column gown made of over two million mother of pearl sequins worn underneath. The look was then completed with an over-the-top 75 ft tulle veil.

For the Hindu ceremony, Priyanka wore a traditional red lehenga created by Sabyasachi Mukherji, which she accessorised with a Chopard 16-carat oval-shaped diamond headpiece and necklace comprising 84.50 carats of pear-shaped diamonds.

Why we loved it: Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas wedding was undoubtedly the most over-the-top celeb wedding of the year (even beating out her best friend, Meghan's, royal wedding). While her veil was the talk of the internet, it was her traditional red lehenga the was our style highlight.

Meghan Markle

What she wore: For the most anticipated wedding of the year, Meghan chose a very sleek bracelet-sleeved, bateau-necked gown designed by Givenchy's new Artistic Director, Clare Waight Keller. While the design looked simple and was free of any embellishment, the couture dress was made from silk cady and cushioned by a triple-silk organza underskirt.

Following the ceremony, Meghan was photographed on the way to the royal reception wearing a custom-designed, slinky halter-necked dress by British designer Stella McCartney.

Why we loved it: "I was really pleased to see something chic, minimal and sophisticated," says Brides Fashion Director, Bryony Toogood. "After years of all-over lace, sparkle and sheer in bridal, it's a clear style statement and undoubtedly something that will be much emulated."

While both dresses have since proved very influential, it was the halter-necked Stella McCartney that has been the more popular. Halter-neck wedding dresses are one of the hottest wedding dress trends for 2019, plus Stella McCartney launched the design as part of her debut bridal collection.

Gwyneth Paltrow

What she wore: Gwyneth collaborated with Valentino designer Pierpaolo Piccioli to create a floral gown featuring an illusion neckline, cap sleeves, a full skirt and a keyhole back. The traditional look was completed with a tulle chapel length veil.

Why we love it: For her first wedding (she eloped with Chris Martin), Gwyneth Paltrow went all out in a romantic floral wedding dress, proving, at 46 years old, you’re never too old to live out your wedding gown fantasy.

Mandy Moore

What she wore: A custom-made pale pink ruffled tulle gown by Rodarte and matching tulle veil.

Why we love it: Who knew Mandy Moore would go so unconventional? Originally the This Is Us actress hinted to People Magazine that she didn’t want a ‘stereotypical white wedding dress,’ but no one could have predicted just how beautifully untraditional the dress would be. Not only do we love the colour (see our favouritepink wedding dresses), but the delicate polka dots and beaded floral applique on the waist make this dress all the more special. Perfect inspiration if you’re an alternative bride.

Princes Eugenie

What she wore: An ivory portrait-neckline gown by British designers Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos. Instead of a veil, Eugenie opted to wear the the Grenville Emerald tiara, which was originally owned by the Queen Mother.

Why we loved it: After so much attention on Meghan Markle’s simple and sleek wedding dress, it was nice to see Princess Eugenie go in a different direction that stayed true to her own personal style. The portrait-neckline (a more formal and classic version of an off-the-shoulder style) was a surprise and a delight to see, especially when we found out Eugenie wanted the dress to reveal the scars from her back operation that she underwent for scoliosis.

“I think you can change the way beauty is, and you can show people your scars, and I think it’s really special to stand up for that,” she said in an interview with ITV.

Chiara Ferragni

What she wore: The blogger bride walked down the aisle in a demure long sleeve and high neck bespoke Dior Haute Couture ball gown, designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri.

Why we love it: As an global Influencer documenting her truly fabulous and fashionable life, Chiara’s gown was a complete bridal fantasy. According to Vogue, the wedding dress itself required 400 metres of fabric and more than 1,600 hours of work to create. Interestingly, while the complete look is incredibly classic and demure, Grazia Chiuri designed it so the skirt tulle skirt could be removed to reveal a very short and sexy crochet jumpsuit, so Chiara got to enjoy the best of both worlds.

Millie Mackintosh

What she wore: A bespoke, strapless white dress with detachable bubble sleeves by Halfpenny London.

Why we love it: It’s all about those sleeves! Made from silk organza with spotty tulle over the top and hand appliquéd lace flowers, we love the way the sleeves completely transform the strapless French lace dress and add a fashion-forward, bohemian vibe to the overall look.

Chanel Iman

What she wore: Chanel wore a silk tulle floral appliqué wedding gown, matching bolero and tulle veil, all designed by Zuhair Murad.

Why we love it: As a supermodel, Chanel could have worn anything down the aisle and looked completely amazing, but we love that she chose a romantic floral gown with a matching bolero. Taken from Murad’s Fall 2018 bridal collection, according to Vogue, the gown is made out of silk tulle embroidered with shimmering 3-D floral appliqués, which took more than 100 hours to make.
