Wedding Gown Inspiration

Available from Alison Burgess Couture

When you are looking for wedding gown inspiration, look at how the celebrities do it and plan accordingly. Think about someone who you admire and see if their signature look could work for you. If you like classic, elegant style check out pictures of Grace Kelly’s wedding. Her fabulous taffeta and vintage lace dress has a timeless look and the Duchess of Cambridge had a similar style of dress in the sweetheart neckline and full length lace sleeves, but a different shape to the lower part of the gown, showing that elegance never dates even though their weddings were fifty five years apart.

Amal Clooney, Reese Witherspoon and Catherine Zeta-Jones all opted for classic elegant styles , with off the shoulder design, blush satin and sash, beautiful silhouettes and lace overlay; any of these elements could be incorporated in to your own design or used for wedding gown inspiration when trying to choose which gowns to try on.

If you want a more relaxed feel check out the beautiful flowing dress worn by Kate Moss at her wedding; with beautiful beaded detailing and feather applique at the hem it kept her boho credentials intact, but the layers of sheer fabric might not be for the faint hearted so consider whether the detailing could work on a slightly heavier fabric.

If you want to have something that is fun, but more demure, check out Jess Ennis’s dress with its pleated wrap style bodice and full skirt packed with lots of frill detail. For full on up to the minute styling look no further than Gwen Stefani’s wedding dress; even though her wedding to Gavin Rossdale was in 2002 and the couple reportedly split this year, the ombre style of the white and pink gown still looks right up to date and definitely makes a statement.
