Getting ready to buy your wedding dress? There are so many to choose from, it can be tough to get started! Silk and satin, tulle and taffeta, beading, lace, and crystals, oh my! But even with all the variety, the most popular wedding dresses in boutiques around the world have more in common than you might think. Check out these top five gowns for a little inspiration of your own.
#5. The Sherbet Tulle Ball Gown by Lazaro Bridal
Perhaps better known by its less exciting name “Style 3108,” this gorgeous gown with a ruched, sweetheart bodice and a full tulle skirt has been a bestseller at New York’s legendary Kleinfeld Bridal. Though it’s available in more traditional shades of white and ivory, it’s the soft sherbet color that won over many brides, adding a touch of flair to the traditional lines.
#4. The Gemma Gown by Vera Wang
This dress combines the current obsession for shimmering sheer fabric with the mermaid shape that’s one of the most popular bridal silhouettes. Vera Wang’s signature structural style makes itself felt in the rolling waves of sparkling organza in the gown’s skirt, as well as in the delicate, asymmetric ruching that shapes the strapless bodice. A simple ribbon belt adds the perfect finishing touch.
#3. The Ines Gown by Amelia Sposa
If you want to buy a wedding dress that will make you look like a princess on your big day, this gown will do the trick! Classic and chic with a ¾ length sleeve, A-line silhouette, and flowing train, it’s a bit reminiscent of Kate Middleton’s wedding gown. The Alençon lace overlay on the bodice and skirt is a high-end touch you don’t see on many gowns, giving it a simple sophistication without a lot of glitz. Pair it with a tiara hairpiece to complete your royal ensemble.
#2. The Illusion Neckline Wedding Dress by Stella York
Wedding dresses boutiques can’t keep this one on the racks! Styled with whimsy and grace or classical elegance, it’s the perfect gown for a whole range of brides. The plunging back is sexy but sweet with an illusion lace overlay, a detail that continues into the fit-and-flare skirt and is echoed in the neckline and tiny, off-the-shoulder sleeves. Wear it with rhinestone sandals for a beach wedding, or add a hairpiece with a sweeping veil for a romantic, fairy tale look.
#1. The Hollie Wedding Dress by Grace Loves Lace
This beachy, boho gown by Australian designer Grace Loves Lace became the darling of the internet when it hit Pinterest—believe it or not, it was pinned and re-pinned more than two billion times! There’s something about its carefree grace and simplicity that brides all over the world couldn’t get enough of. In fact, the original run of the Hollie dress sold out entirely, but it’s been recreated with the Hollie 2.0 gown.
