Sophie Turner’s second wedding dress left many in awe after it was revealed that the Louis Vuitton gown took more than 350 hours to make.
In all their bridal glory, these are our favourite wedding gowns that dropped on our feeds recently.
Ellie Goulding’s star-studded wedding made headlines but her dress requires a moment of its own. The UK star wore the most incredible hand-embroidered gown by luxury fashion maison Chloé, featuring glass beads and Victorian-inspired details. The long-sleeved floor length gown also featured button detail along the forearm. The fashion house shares that the silk tulle veil alone took 590 hours to make with the couple’s initials on it.
With the tag #BecomingMrsM, Samkelisiwe populated social media in her glorious Orapeleng Modutle wedding gown. The designer who has become popular for creating decadently-embroided gowns for stars such as Thando Thabethe and Boity Thulo, lent his gifted touch to create Samkelisiwe wedding gown. Beading work galore, the gown also features a bodice, an overskirt, sheer illusion and ultra-volume topped off with a royal inspired crown.
In the spirit of this nuptial season, these are the other wedding gowns we’ve love.
Former OWLAG student Glori Neslon shared pictures of her wedding earlier this year. In traditional all-white, Glori looked ever-so-gracious in a floor length backless gown with button detail along the sleeves. She accessorised with bright white pearl tier earrings and Manolo pumps.
Lydia chose to wear a custom-made black Roberts Wood silk organza gown. The designer refers to this ornamental creation as a “hand-linked non-stitch ruffle X-ray dress with super-long ruffle train”. While covered in ruffles this dress has mesh details around the shoulder area and sealed off with a crew neck. The superior details on this wedding matched the distinction in which the dress was made.
