A wedding gown is the most important and memorable dress a woman will ever wear. And when you’re a celebrity, everyone in the world can view (and judge) your gown through photos. Today we’re taking a look back at some of the most photographed and memorable wedding gowns we’ve ever seen, and how you can get the look for less at Lotus.
The woman who started it all: Queen Victoria. The reason we all wear white! Queen Victoria was one of the first woman to wear white on her wedding day. Colors were typically worn on your wedding day. It was seen as a symbol of innocence and purity, and also as a sign of wealth, since white was a difficult color to achieve and maintain at the time.
While the details of this gown are no longer in fashion, a satin ballgown never goes out of style. Here are some beautiful options available at Lotus Bridal:
This beautiful satin gown from Casablanca is fit for a queen. The beading at the waist gives just enough sparkle.
This gown from Allure has an understated elegance about it. The ruched bodice shows off your waist, and the back is adorned with a bow.
When Carolyn Bessette married John F. Kennedy Jr. in 1996, she rocked the fashion world. Her silk sheath gown gave brides everywhere the green light to ditch traditional silhouettes on their wedding day and wear something a little sexier.
With the same shape, but a bit more sparkle, this dress from Allure is sure to wow!
Here’s another beautiful sheath gown from designer San Patrick.
Of course, no list of iconic wedding gowns would be complete without Princess Diana’s. Possibly the most famous gown of all time, Diana’s gown when she married Prince Charles in 1981 may no longer be the gold standard for wedding gowns, but it’s certainly historic.
What was most memorable about Di’s gown was the 25 foot long train. While us non-royals might not be able to get away with something quite so extravagant, this gown from Sottero & Midgley has a beautiful train at a much more manageable length.
This gown from Casablanca has intricate embroidery on the train. It is sure to make a statement as you walk down the aisle.
Continuing with the royal weddings, Kate Middleton and Grace Kelly had beautiful and similar dresses.
For a similar top, but with a sexier shape, check out this gown from Allure. It has the same v neck and lace sleeves, but will show off your curves!
This gown from Casablanca looks positively princess-like.
The lace top is actually a jacket! That makes this dress 2 in 1! You can be covered for your walk down the aisle, then take the jacket off for your reception.
Chelsea Clinton’s wedding dress was a gorgeous organza creation.
The dramatic folds in her skirt are part of a big trend in bridal right now.
