We had a sneaking suspicion that Adele's pregnancy was a precursor to another impending arrival—an intimate, glamorous wedding. Although she and partner Simon Konecki have yet to announce or confirm an engagement, the singer is reportedly looking for wedding dresses for an upcoming wedding! Even better? Her designer of choice is apparently bridal guru (and Kate Middleton favorite) Jenny Packham. "Adele has her heart set on Jenny Packham and is keen to get things under way," an unnamed source claimed, according to tabloid reports. "She is currently planning a ceremony for the end of summer or early autumn." Packham, a fellow Brit, seems like a smashing choice to make Adele's custom wedding dress—they share a similar feminine style with echos of Old-Hollywood glam. We looked at some of Packham's frocks that seemed particularly Adele-worthy to figure out what might inspire Packham's creation.

When we saw this super chic short dress from Packham's Spring 2013 collection, we immediately thought of how sophisticated and modern Adele would look walking down the aisle in it. This knockout gown that Adele wore to the 2013 Oscars was designed by Jenny Packham, after all. The dresses share intricate beading, long sleeves and a flattering neckline. Plus, Adele is known for rocking short dresses at even the most formal events, so why should her wedding be any exception?

What was so exciting about the floral Valentino Adele wore to the 2013 Grammys was how unexpected the pink color was for the black dress-loving singer. The gamble paid off, and reminded us how versatile and wedding-worthy her style is. Jenny Packham's Fall 2012 collection included this dress, which features a similar knee-length tulle skirt. The illusion neckline is also an Adele fave—not to mention totally trendy.

Kristen Bell may have already stepped out in this design from Packham's Spring 2013 collection in lavender, but we can't help but think Adele would completely make it her own as a wedding dress in the original white version. She favors retro, Art Deco-inspired details like the neckline on her VMA's dress. This Packham gown has a similar vintage-esque neckline, as well as a gorgeous, flowing skirt that would complement the bouffant hairstyles she wears so well.
