For all the television lovers out there, we know the Emmy Awards are a chance for you to watch your favorite TV characters get the recognition they deserve. However, for Brides, the Emmys (most specifically the red carpet) is a destination for us to scour and search for the ultimate wedding-worthy looks.
At this year's award show, we saw celebs like Kerry Washington, Issa Rae, and Sydney Sweeney grace the "gold carpet" in their best iterations of bridalwear. In addition to several other stand-out looks, there was no shortage of inspiration for brides looking to wear a celebrity-approved ensemble to their own nuptials.
So ahead, here are the top 10 wedding-worthy dresses from the 2022 Primetime Emmy Awards. You never know, you just may find "the one" on the red carpet.
Amanda Seyfried in Armani
Calling all glam brides! Take a cue from Amanda Seyfried and rock a sequined, blush pink ensemble for your trendy ceremony, reception, or after-party. Follow her styling lead and accessorize with a tennis bracelet and diamond drop earrings.
Kerry Washington in Elie Saab
Kerry Washington not only came out in her best bridal-inspired look, but she took it a step further and wore a dress by renowned bridalwear designer Elie Saab. We adore the oversized organza florals that add a romantic touch to this award-worthy look.
Zuri Hall in Rami Kadi Maison de Couture
Cue the drama with this gorgeous ankle-length gown, embellished with all-over feathers. We absolutely love the way Zuri Hall styled this look with a sleek pony and classic pumps, an amazing and chic ensemble for a trendy bride.
Ayo Edebiri in Giambattista Valli
While Ayo Edebiri's Giambattista Valli mini could work for a city hall or courthouse wedding, we also see it as a stunning dress for engagement photos or rehearsal dinners. The soft pink hue and three-dimensional floral embroidery, paired with the ethereal cape, are everything you need for a one-of-a-kind wedding dress.
Jean Smart in Christian Siriano
Jean Smart stunned on the gold carpet with this long-sleeve Christian Siriano gown. For brides looking for a no-fuss wedding ensemble, be sure to draw inspiration from this piece and lean into design elements like the off-the-shoulder neckline and non-embellished fabric.
Sydney Sweeney in Oscar de la Renta
Sydney Sweeney's stunning Oscar de la Renta gown was made to be worn at an elegant bridal affair. The beaded embroidery adds texture to the column silhouette, and coupled with the silver hue, dramatic bustle, and scooped neckline, it's no wonder why everyone's raving about this unique ensemble.
Issa Rae in Sergio Hudson
A favorite look of the night, Issa Rae illustrates why brides should lean into the keyhole cutout trend. For those drawing inspiration from the writer, actress, and TV powerhouse, be sure to also embrace the black and white color palette and drop waist silhouette.
Rosario Dawson in Christian Siriano
Rosario Dawson's Christian Siriano gown highlights different design elements that make up a perfect wedding ensemble: corset bodice, fit and flare skirt, and off-the-shoulder neckline. However, this gown turns it up a notch with its rose pink hue and ruffled neckline—a lovely combination for the bride looking to add some drama to her day-of aesthetic.
Dichen Lachman looked absolutely stunning in this mini, and brides everywhere should take note of this minimal but contemporary ensemble. The geometric, sequined pattern on the dress also adds dimension, and would be a stunning piece to wear on the big day.
Zendaya in Valentino
While some may see a black gown and immediately write it off as "non-bridal", at Brides, we see this daring color as a way to stand out and show your personality. Zendaya never disappoints on the red carpet, and this gorgeous Valentino ballgown was made to be worn by a bride as bold and confident as the Euphoria star.
