My Favorite Bridal Gowns

Monique Lhuillier
I love everything about this 1920s-inspired dress - the high neckline topping off a Victorian lace bodice, the youthful sash, and the flowing mermaid skirt.  This design is a refreshing and girlish departure from the ubiquitous, overtly sexy, and often unflattering strapless wedding dresses that seem to be the only option at many bridal shops.  Unfortunately I am not sure whether this dress even exists, because Monique Lhuillier submitted the design as a potential wedding dress for the character, Bella Swan, of the Twilight film series.

Emanuel Ungaro
The draping is sublime.  I am attracted to the simple elegance and avant-garde cut of this bridal gown.

Marchesa: Resort 2010
Two words: Greek goddess. 

Christian Dior: Spring 2009 Couture
A Disney princess would wear this, as would I.

Versace: 2009 Atelier
If I am in the mood to party like a rock star at my wedding . . . 

I would like the back of the last Versace dress more if there were (1) a zipper instead of a lace-up; and (2) no cut-out.


  1. I love the Monique Lhuillier one and the rockstart Versace one!!! HOT!

  2. I wish I were rich so I could buy them all. Haha :)

  3. Hahahaha, you and me both! :D

  4. Where can I buy the Emanuel Ungaro one shoulder grecian dress? Please email me!
