Wedding Fashion: VIP inspiration

Getting married is one of the most expensive things you can do. The average cost of a wedding is now upwards of £18,000 – though thankfully that includes the honeymoon! But it’s your special day, and nothing should stop you enjoying it like a VIP. Brides-to-be are always looking for inspiration for their wedding day, and where better place to look than the weddings of celebrities? They’re always at the forefront of the latest trends, and there’s plenty to inspire you from lots of different weddings. From gowns and venues to cakes and bridesmaids, you can take inspiration from your favourite VIPs to create the wedding of your dreams.

More Than One Dress

When your wedding dress could cost you a thousand pounds or more, it might seem insane to buy more than one. But money is no object for Kim Kardashian, who reportedly wore three different Vera Wang gowns for her special day. Although, she actually wore two different dresses from two designers. You don’t have to splash out on three designer dresses, but many women choose to have a separate outfit for the reception. Your beautiful white dress might not be suitable for eating and dancing in, so get another dress if you would prefer to slip into something more comfortable.

Simple Dresses


It might seem a bit of a surprise, but a lot of celebrity brides are choosing to go for simple, understated wedding dresses. You don’t need any fancy jewels or embellishments when your dress is subtly enhancing your natural beauty. You can choose a gown that has one distinguishing feature, like Khloe Kardashian’s white Vera Wang bridesmaid dress and its fishtail skirt.

Outdoor Weddings

Celebrities are pretty fond of getting married outdoors, but you can hardly blame them when they have so many beautiful landscapes to choose from. You can make nature your wedding venue and play off the environment with your decorations. Celebrity wedding planner Tara Guerard Soiree has previously used rose petals strewn across a grassy green aisle for a dreamy fairytale effect. Just make sure that when you send out your wedding invites all your guests know that it’s going to be outside.

Destination Weddings

When you need to invite guests from all over the world, it’s best to go somewhere neutral than squabble about whose home you’ll go to. Several couples got married abroad in 2014, including Kim and Kanye, and Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka, who both chose Italy as their destination. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie went for a quiet and intimate wedding in France. If you’re going to get married abroad, it’s best to keep it small, so why not keep the guest list to your close family and friends for an unforgettable time in another country?


All in White

It’s traditional for the bride to wear white, but some celebrity brides chose to take the white theme further. Kim Kardashian had her bridesmaids in white, while Solange Knowles has the whole wedding party dress in ivory, from the groom to the guests. You could pick your own single colour scheme for that wow-effect.
