It's that time of year again! Couture fashion week has come and gone in Paris and we are officially drooling over the gorgeous brides that came down the runway.
As is tradition, most Haute Couture runway shows close with a bride coming down the runway. The Spring/Summer 2020 season's crop of brides didn't disappoint and we got a taste of all the trends we can expect to trickle down to bridal on these runways. While Couture Fashion Week usually gives us some seriously over the top fashions—think larger-than-life ballgowns with overflowing layers of fabric, balloon sleeves—this coming season we're seeing things a bit more paired down. From a casual civil ceremony-ready look closing Chanel, to an array of Grecian-inspired gowns fit for a goddess at Dior, and short little numbers that would give Audrey Hepburn's Funny Face wedding dress a serious run for its money at Georges Chakra.
