At last, one of fashion's (and film's) most prestigious events is finally upon us again: the Cannes Film Festival. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we certainly missed seeing all of the over-the-top red carpet looks, especially the ones that give us major wedding dress inspiration.
Now that the annual event is back and the 74th Cannes Film Festival is in full swing, celebrities are embracing all of the glitz and glamour that they missed out on last year. And we've seen quite a few looks in France this year that are perfect for any wedding you're attending—whether you're in the bridal party, a guest, or walking down the aisle yourself.
From Jodie Turner-Smith's edgy studded and ombré gown to Andie MacDowell's stunning one-shoulder dress, scroll on for our favorite wedding-inspired Cannes looks so far.
The actress's one-shoulder white and silver-beaded gown perfectly marries the glamour of Old Hollywood with the sleek aesthetic of the modern bride.

The model wore a stunning structural gown that's elegance on top and party on the bottom. This edgy ensemble is perfect for a bold bride who wants a look that won't restrain them on the dance floor.
Angele van Laeken
The singer's cascading black dress with gold beaded detailing would make for a beautiful wedding guest look. The long gown is ideal for a formal winter wedding, and would even be a beautiful and unique option for a bridal party around the holidays—say a New Year's Eve wedding?
The French actress attended the Benedetta screening in a sophisticated tea-length, long-sleeved dress, which she paired with white pointy-toed pumps. The whole look is suited for a casual ceremony or even a bridal shower.
One word: obsessed. The model stunned in a '90s-inspired structured gown with a slinky white bodice and skirt. Black tulle peaked out of the top that tied into a halter before flowing into a long train. It's must-see inspiration for the daring bride.
The model's sleek halter dress was simple yet timelessly elegant. Intricate beading bordered the top and neckline of the gown, which would be perfect for the modern, minimal bride.
Simply iconic. The actress stole the show in a campy strapless gown with bra cups accented with leather and gold studs. The dress's white sheer bodice featured visible boning that flowed into a feathery white and yellow ombré skirt. Ideal for the high-fashion bride who wants to turn heads.
The singer and model attended the Annette screening, looking poised in a dazzling, one-shoulder beaded blue gown. The sleek gown doubles as a great option for your bridesmaids or for the mother of the bride. We just found your something blue.
Ferragni's bright flowing gown would make for a bold and bohemian choice for the boho-loving bride. The fun neon shade of green was offset by delicate silver metal flower detailing along the neckline, arms, and midsection.
The actress's green beaded and printed chiffon gown would look beautiful on bridesmaids lined up at the end of the aisle, especially during an outdoor summer wedding.
This sophisticated suit, donned by French actress Leila Bekhti, is ideal for the progressive and fashion-forward bride. The cinched waist gives the jacket a feminine cut while the sleek off-the-shoulder lapels create a chic modern look.
Nidhi Sunil's stunning and spunky cocktail dress would make for a fun reception look when it's time to hit the dance floor.
The actress, who is also a member of this year's jury, attended the Annette screening in a shimmering ivory strapless gown paired with a matching high-necked cape. It's perfect for the timeless bride looking for something with a bit of an edge.
The ruffled ivory chiffon dress featured a pleated plunging neckline that gave off a Grecian air and would look elegant at a beach or outdoor wedding.
This square-neck babydoll mini dress would make for such a cute and classic wedding guest look. It's also incredibly versatile and could be worn to both summer and winter weddings, depending on how you style it.
Last but certainly not least: a fringe and sparkle jumpsuit for the bride to slip into once she's ready to party.
