Dressed to Impress: 7 Modern Wedding Looks We're Loving
1. (above) Modern Traditionalist
Edgy details counter the classic silhouette of Rosa Clará’s “Neon” dress. Flaunting a V-neck front and V-neck back, the raw gazar gown also sports pockets and frosted beading motifs. A bow-tied belt flatters the waist while exposed arms show some skin. Price upon request, from designerloftnyc.com.
2. Party Streamer
Evoking an airy aura, the “Hettie” dress with bateau neckline by Temperley London Bridal is irrefutably romantic. The figure-flattering gown’s full-length cape gives the illusion of streamer sleeves as it effortlessly floats across the floor. Pair with the Ionie hair comb for sparkle. $7,350, through a bridal representative at +44 207 229 7957.
3. Baby Got Back
A sweeping train, cutout back and tulle skirt godets take this modified A-line Jim Hjelm gown from simply stunning to over-the-top gorgeous. The front features a curved V neckline and crystal-trim waist detailing. Price upon request, from the JLM Couture Flagship Salon in West Hollywood.
4. Hot Pants
For the trendy bride who doesn’t want a dress, look no further than “The Province” two-piece set by Lela Rose. A shimmery, bow-back strapless top pairs with high-waisted trousers that elongate any frame. $1,995 (top), $1,295 (pants), from Jin Wang bridal atelier in San Francisco.
5. Petal Pusher
Oscar de la Renta’s ivory guipure lace column gown boasts elegant embroidery and tantalizing texture. Remove the floral lace caraco top with silk petal accents and satin ribbon tie for a revealing reception look. $10,980, from Oscar de la Renta Melrose in Los Angeles.
6. Cut It Out
This white macramé lace and mikado gown by Angel Sanchez is sporty yet feminine. A high-waisted skirt counters the high-necked halter top with skin-baring racer back. $9,640, from A Bride by Samantha in Los Angeles.
7. Skirt the Rules
Strut down the aisle in style, courtesy of Monique Lhuillier’s “Beaumont” dress with cascading high-low skirt. The sleeveless silk Chantilly lace ball gown also features a breathtaking floral-embroidered illusion neckline. $8,990, from the Monique Lhuillier Bridal Boutique in Los Angeles.
