Without a doubt, celebrities are responsible for establishing and dictating fashion trends, and their influence on bridal wear is no exception. Although 2014 is only about halfway through, some gorgeous celebrity brides have donned show-stopping looks that will most definitely inspire bridal designers for seasons to come. Though we have seen several celebrities walk down the aisle this year, there are some famous brides who made headlines because of their bridal wear. And though we may not have the luxury of having an esteemed fashion designer customize our dresses for our special day, since a wedding dress is one of the most important things a woman will wear, we can take inspiration from some of the most adored bridal looks of 2014.
Olivia Palermo, socialite and fashionista of MTV’s “The City” fame, has been sprawled all over most fashion media outlets for her genius ensembles and effortless aesthetic. However, her custom Caroline Herrera three-piece wedding “dress” could perhaps be one of her most innovative choices yet. At her quaint June New York wedding to model Johannes Huebl, Palermo’s look consisted of a simple white cashmere sweater with hints of ostrich feather, a pair of white shorts, and a tulle overlay with floral embroidery and a high slit. Since posting a beautiful photo on her Instagram of her look, it has been raved about, and deservingly so; many non-traditional brides are looking for new ways to achieve a bridal look without settling for a typical white dress, and Palermo has blessed these ladies with another brilliant idea.
As one of the most talked about celebrities of this day, fashion insiders and fans alike were shaking in anticipation to learn what Kim Kardashian would wear for her third trip down the aisle. At her wedding to rapper Kanye West in May, Kardashian wore a Givenchy Haute Couture gown that was the epitome of elegance. With a high neckline, sheer lace long sleeves, the perfect silhouette-hugging fit, and a slight flare at the bottom, Kim Kardashian was a stunning bride. The dress was an incredibly elegant, fashion-forward departure from Kim’s usual style, but an open back and cut-outs at the side were elements of sexiness that we’re used to seeing from Kim. When photos of you and your new husband break Instagram, you know you have picked the right dress.
Open backs have been on-trend for bridal wear for a long time. In order to maintain the support you need, while eliminating straps from your open back look, we recommend the adjustable and comfortable Forever New Bra Back Converter available on Now That’s Lingerie, which will allow you to feel confident in your backless pieces while giving you the option to wear a bra.
Although rapper Eve hasn’t been in the spotlight for quite some time, she definitely caught our attention with her extravagant custom Alice Temperley gown at her lavish wedding to businessman Maximillion Cooper last month. Her gown featured some bridal staples and favourites; sparkling jewels, floral embroidery, decadent lace, and even some understated fringe that flowed out of a front slit. Although Eve’s gown contained a large amount of elements, it all came together beautifully with her cathedral length gown and pretty braided hairstyle.
What a bride decides to wear on her special day is significant, as it’s a day she will regard as one of the most important of her life. When the festivities are over and it’s time for extra rounds of celebration, what she wears underneath her gown is important too. At Now That’s Lingerie, we have a unique and stunning selection of bridal lingerie to not only pull together your bridal ensemble, but to remind your new husband at the end of the night what a lucky man he is to have just married you!
