This is one of the highlights of the haute couture fashion shows: a final reserved for the bride. But if spectacular dresses may seem inaccessible to those who are about to say yes, other immaculate models stand out as real sources of inspiration.
Majestic, spectacular, breathtaking … There are many qualifiers to describe haute couture wedding dresses. Sometimes at the risk of doing too much. It is indeed difficult to imagine yourself in a dress weighing several kilos because of its rich embroidery and other pearls. And sometimes requiring four assistants to help the mannequin who carries it to move. Even though you have dedicated bridesmaids, freedom of movement remains invaluable for those who are about to commit for life.

Fortunately, the couturiers do not shy away from their pleasure and imagine multiple evening dresses within their couture collection. If we imagine the most colorful coming to dress the personalities of the red carpet, the immaculate versions are undoubtedly a source of inspiration for D-Day. And for next spring-summer, styles vary to satisfy all desires. The most classic will find the famous strapless dress revisited asymmetric version with chiffon petals at Ralph & Russo or embroidered with millions of sequins at Zuhair Murad. The court offers an attractive alternative to Alexandre Vauthier, especially for those who would like to do only a civil ceremony. Finally, for even more originality, the openwork swimsuit embroidered with crystals seen at Chanel.

Warm colors and spring embroidery
But white is not absolutely essential in the imagination of couturiers. At Giambattista Valli, we let ourselves be captivated by the scarlet creation that closed the show; a very theatrical asymmetrical dress, with ruffles and a veil speckled with small red roses. At Schiaparelli, the white dress is refreshed with delicate multicolored floral embroidery for a spring look. Something to seduce all future brides in search of originality or simply inspiration.
