After reading about the wedding dress disaster that happened to a Filipina bride last week, it got me thinking about what I would wear on my special day. Not that it’s going to happen soon but a girl can dream, right?
Going for a traditional white gown is the safest choice to make. We’ve also seen several celebrity brides opting for this. But as the years progress, so does bridal wear as women get married in jumpsuits and different-colored dresses. If you want to go for the unconventional route on your wedding day, check out the celebrity pegs below.
Emily Ratajkowski recently had a surprise civil wedding with Sebastian Bear-McClard in Manhattan. She wore a mustard yellow pantsuit from Zara and a black hat with a veil. Her pug was also present at the ceremony.
Blogger Camie Juan also got married in New York last December. She opted for a blush pink ASOS dress and paired it with nude heels and a Topshop trench coat. She shared on her blog that she wanted to go for a “classic and timeless” look for her special day.
The granddaughter of late designer Sonia Rykiel ditched the traditional wedding dress and went for a white jumpsuit for her civil ceremony. It was a sleeveless crepe sateen piece paired with an ostrich feather-trimmed jacket. “I never saw myself in a jumpsuit. But I tried it, and it was so original, and I thought my grandmother would approve,” Lola Rykiel said.
Journalist and Italian aristocrat Beatrice Borromeo married Monaco royalty Pierre Casiraghi in 2015, and she wore a pale pink Valentino gown for the civil ceremony. Designed by creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, it had a cape, bell sleeves, and gold lace chiffon.
Vania Romoff designed a short Filipiniana-style dress for Nicole CuUnjieng. It had fringe details and based on the comments on it, it was the perfect piece for dancing.
For her second wedding, Avril Lavigne went back to her punk-rock roots and wore a black gown. She also had a black rose bouquet and her husband Chad Kroeger also wore an all-black suit.
Notorious star Piper Perabo went for a silver sequined Michael Kors dress for her wedding with director Stephen Kay. To make it more unique, she paired it with a cathedral-length yellow veil.
An ombré white and pink wedding gown is a piece fit for any pop singer. Gwen Stefani wore a Dior one for her 2002 wedding with singer Gavin Rossdale. The dress was also featured in V&A’s 2014 exhibit titled Wedding Dresses 1775-2014.
