5 Wedding Dresses Inspired by Lauren Conrad’s Bridal Style
Lauren Conrad still hasn’t released any official pictures of her wedding — we’re still on Instagram watch, so we’ll report back the minute she does. However, we are slowly getting details of her dress, including a sketch (shown above) from the designers’ Instagram, who you may have heard of … Mark Badgley and James Mischka? As in, THE Badgley Mischka? Yeah, we’re jealous, too. As People StyleWatch reports, the sketch was custom made for Lauren by the designers, and the official full unveiling of the gown (no pun intended) can’t come soon enough!
Until then, we’ve done some research and have picked a few gowns that we think fit Lauren’s aesthetic of “glamorous, simple and classic,” as the bride told Us Weekly. If you’re trying to channel the always chic Lauren for your big day, look no further: we’ve got you covered.
This Romona Keveza gown is ideal for a classic bride, and shares intricate detailing and a lacy neckline with Lauren Conrad’s wedding vision. It’s visually similar to Grace Kelly, as well, whom women the world over use as inspiration for their wedding day — and LC is no exception! Stars … they ARE just like us!
StyleWatch describes the custom gown as a “lace column,” and this Reem Acra is a perfect fit for that description. It’s lace from head-to-toe, with a soft column silhouette and strapless for a bride who may not want a high-necked gown.
‘Mischelene’ by Maggie Sottero has every element of Lauren Conrad’s dress you could ever want — without having it custom made, of course. It’s lacy, beaded with a high neckline and a slight train. It’s Old Hollywood glamour and perfect for a classically romantic ceremony.
‘Kingsley’ by Anne Bowen is a good compromise if Lauren’s style is a little too buttoned-up for your taste. It still features a gorgeous train, fitted silhouette, and beading — but the beading is focused solely on the bodice, allowing more movement in the skirt. It’s a modern style which still evokes a bit of timelessness, which is perfect for a less traditional bride.
After the ceremony, HollywoodLife.com reports that Lauren changed into a strapless Monique Lhuillier mermaid gown for the reception. If classic, Grace Kelly-esque isn’t your style, the Oscar de la Renta mermaid shown above might just do the trick for you: it’s easy to move and dance in, just like Lauren’s second gown, and it isn’t as fussy as a lacy, beaded dress.
