Best of 2015: Wedding Dresses

The brides we featured this year had amazing style, so this Best Of 2015 category was particularly difficult to narrow down. We looked for brides who let their personality show in their style, whether that was through accessories, silhouettes or, even designing the dress themselves.


Mikki and Caleb's Roaring Twenties wedding invited all of their guests to don garments from the decade. The bride herself was the picture of early 20th-century glamour wearing a drop-waisted champagne dress by Sue Wong with a singular feather peeking out from her headband. | photo by Crystal Puim Photography


Meghan worked closely with designer Alina Pizzano to bring the three-piece gown that she designed to life for her Tuscany wedding. The bride channeled Grace Kelly in the details such as the soft bateau neckline, tiny bow belt, delicate lace and high-low hemline. | photo by Lelia Scarfiotti


For their winter restaurant wedding, Erin chose a gorgeous Tadashi Shoji wedding gown and paired it with a Nanette Lepore coat. Family heirlooms ā€” a diamond necklace made from her grandmotherā€™s engagement ring and a pearl necklace that belonged to Virgilā€™s grandmother ā€” were passed down to the bride as her something old, while a beaded purse gifted from her mother was her something new, and a borrowed veil from a friend and a blue floral handkerchief she mother had saved since she was little rounded out the rest of the tradition. | photo by Elvira Kalviste Photography

Dayna and Allie executed their own personal styles for their Brooklyn wedding flawlessly in their dress and accessory choices. Allie selected a romantic Henry Roth dress boasting a sweetheart neckline and beaded embellishment around the waistline. Meanwhile, Dayna glowed in a one-shoulder Jenny Yoo high-low hemline gown, anchored by a gold belt. | photo by Mikkel Paige


The brideā€™s swing-style dress was from Modcloth and she added a crinoline skirt that she dyed blue, creating incredible photo ops every time she twirled during her bed-and-breakfast celebration. | photo by Sarah Tew Photography
