2. Elizabeth Hurley
Elizabeth Hurley is a timeless beauty, and so is this elegant lace gown which she sported in 2017. Its sleek silhouette is ideal for brides who want to steer clear of Princess dresses, and the puddle train and three-quarter sleeves make it a real classic.
3. Helen Mirren
Proving that age means nothing when it comes to looking incredible, Helen Mirren looked every inch the goddess when she rocked this dress in 2015. The sheer lace bodice steals the show while the long sleeves are trendy addition, and what’s handy for brides is that the pleated skirt is loose enough for busting shapes on the dancefloor.
4. Nicole Kidman
If you’ve been keeping up with Bridgerton, you may already be falling for puff sleeves and delicate satin, and this 2019 Nicole Kidman showstopper is another tick in the vintage-style box. Boho brides may want to pair this kind of dress with angelic waves and antique jewels for maximum effect.
5. Penelope Cruz
If this doesn’t scream bridal chic, then we don’t know what does. Penelope Cruz looks fit to glide down the aisle in this breathtaking number she donned for a red-carpet appearance. The draped tulle and appliqué lace only adds to the glamour, and the sweetheart bandeau neckline keeps it modern.
6. Jessica Biel
In 2018, Jessica Biel stepped out in this fabulous dress, and it’s a style that would suit any modern-day bride. The straight-cut neckline and dramatic asymmetrical ruffles give it an eye-catching silhouette and the geometric patterned fabric provides further fashion points.
7. Jennifer Aniston
If you’re not the shy and retiring type, then a figure-hugging bridal gown à la Jennifer Aniston could be on the cards. In 2020, the actress wowed in this slinky satin creation which featured a cowl neckline and fishtail hem. Team the dress with a slick of red lipstick and sparkly jewellery to nail wedding-day glam.
8. Margot Robbie
Actress Margot Robbie looked a vision in all-white as she attended a glittering Oscars ceremony. The fashion-forward design featured statement draped shoulders, an elegant layered skirt and a sophisticated train. If you want understated elegance on your dream day, this style could be ‘the one’.
9. Halle Berry
How do you fancy sashaying down the aisle in a sultry Halle Berry-approved design? The silky gown with plunging neckline comes with a pretty lace overskirt, and styles like this often come with the overlay as detachable to allow you to switch up your look.
10. Lupita Nyong’o
Ensure all eyes are on you with a top-to-toe beaded gown, just like the wonderful Lupita Nyong’o‘s. This mermaid-esque gown is the epitome of bridal decadence, and perfect for getting married at night or if you’re planning to wear a second dress on your big day.
