Fantasy Wedding Dresses

I’m getting married in the next year or so, here are my dream wedding dresses if money was no object.

TEA LENGTH DRESSES

05-dice-kayek-resort-black-17_wedding

Above: I love this Dice Kayek Resort 2017 dress. It’s simple, and I wouldn’t have to worry about complicated underwear.

Below: I love the structure of this Simone Rocha Spring 2016 dress, but obviously I would have to re-work the top so it’s not sheer.

SEPERATES

luisabeccariaspring2016_wedding

Above: I love the idea of wearing separates. I love the skirt from the Luisa Beccaria Spring 2016 look above, and the Rosie Assoulin Spring 2016 look below. Just a matter of finding a different top.

LONG SLEEVES

monique-lhuillier-pre-fall-2016-lookbook-wedding

Above: I love the simplicity of this Monique Lhuillier Pre-Fall 2016 dress

I want a cool-weather wedding for sure (hard pass on wedding season, thanks), so long sleeves are just practical.

Below: My utilitarian bride look from Alexander McQueen Spring 2016

alexandermcqueen_spring2016_wedding

Below: Another super-simple dress, this one by Kate Ermilio from her Fall 2016 collection.

SOMETHING DIFFERENT

Above: I love, love, love the blooms and bright colours of this dress from Emilia Wickstead Spring 2016

I’m not wholly committed to wearing white, if I see a colourful or print dress that I want to be married in, I’m going for it. These three dresses definitely caught my eye–perfect for a party, elegant, and memorable.

08-valentino-resort-17_wedding

Above: This Valentino Resort 2017 dress is mostly white, tea-length, and the print is just enough.

Below: Love them long sleeves and tea length, plus black and gold for maximum drama? This Marchesa Notte Spring 2016 dress is amazing

marchesa-notte-spring-2016_wedding

Below: This Raquel Allegra Pre-Fall 2016 dress is the most casual on this list for sure, but hey, if all the wedding planning drives me crazy and I’m too stressed to get into something more formal, I would definetly wear this.

THE CLASSIC BRIDAL LOOK

36-rosie-assoulin-fall-2016-ready-to-wear_swedding

Above: This Rosie Assoulin Fall 2016 dress is definitely the most recognizable as wedding dress, and I do really love it. It looks like it presents some logistical challenges underwear-wise, but I love all the structural details.
