The shows at Paris Fashion Week just wrapped, and we're bringing you our top five looks from the Spring/Summer 2015 collections to inspire your own wedding-day style. From the powerful confidence of Elie Saab's gown to the most delicate lace to Giambattista Valli's masterful cascading embroidery, the Parisian runways were full of designs to inspire your bridal style.
Alessandro Dell'Acqua: Dell'Acqua's third collection for Rochas, the French house known for ladylike dressing, played with beautiful transparency, texture, and paired graceful fabrics with various types of lace. We love this short mod dress with transparent mid-length skirt for the wedding after party.
Giambattista Valli: This collection focused on streamlined shapes (a contrast to the feats of construction he shown in the past) pared down to focus on the body, and thereby, the woman. This beautiful soft-white column features cascading floral embroidery (similar to the embroidery of Amal Alamuddin's pre-ceremony dress from Valli's Fall 2014 haute couture collection — love!), which seems destined for a springtime garden celebration.
Valentino: Dreaming of a seaside wedding on the French Riviera? Step beyond anything you've seen on Pinterest and take a minute to take in the delicate air of this Valentino beauty. The nude organza gown, with its plunging neckline and whisper thin fabric, is simultaneously sexy and refined; perfect for an evening ceremony on the Cote d'Azur.
Elie Saab: Bridal-world favorite Elie Saab never fails to impress, and this spring the designer is back with his fail-proof gowns and romantic silhouette-defining embroideries. This lace dress is entirely bridal, with a bold spirit — a reimagined take on the Elie Saab dress worn by Brides cover girl Olivia Palermo.
Ellery: Australian-born and Central St. Martins educated, designer Kym Ellery's collection for Ellery once again included eveningwear with a twist. We loved the final look of her show, this ultra-chic pant look, paired with a strapless top of cloudlike organza; the fluid shape of the top renders a bouquet entirely optional.
