There’s nothing like a bit of dazzle when a bride walks down the runway. Did we say runway? We meant aisle! Well, for the bride with a flair for the bold and dramatic, the aisle is her runway, and a sparkling dress in silver or gold is one of the most beautiful ways to do said aisle justice. Glam, showstopping, and glittering, a silver or gold gown is the perfect choice for the fashion-forward bride looking to make a statement and turn heads.
Whether taking shape in the form of shining metallics, glittering beading, or twinkling sparkles, the Spring 2018 collections were far from short on options. Lozano and YolanCris Haute Couture’s shimmering masterpieces are nothing short of swoonworthy, delivering a gold sparkle that rivals that of any regal queen, complete with ballgown silhouettes. If you’re a bride who prefers the icy cool tones of silver over the warmth and fire of gold, Berta and Naeem Khan have everything you’re looking for and more. Both take on a glamorous, nontraditional approach, albeit in different ways with the former emphasizing its trademark sophisticated meets sexy look with illusion skirts, cut-outs, and capes, and the latter putting a modern spin on vintage influences, whether it’s a 1920s flapper dress or chic and cool 1970s jumpsuit. And if you just can’t decide on which metal you prefer, Mason Hosker offers the perfect compromise, blending both silver and gold for a gleaming modern feel juxtaposed with classic silhouettes.
Trust us, these beauties will do all the talking. There’s no need to dramatize your hair or makeup; keeping them simple will let these stunning gowns shine brighter than they already do. From the sultry and glam to the bold and the beautiful, we’ve rounded up the most dazzling options from the runways. You’ll never want to look at a white dress again.
