Dream weddings fashion alert: Elie Saab is launching a bridal collection. Yes, the designer responsible for whipping up beyond exquisite princess-worthy gowns (worn by the likes of Jennifer Lopez and Elizabeth Banks) is translating that aesthetic for the walk down the aisle. It's important to note that this isn't the first time the couturier has ever done bridal. As tradition would have it, he closes out his Elie Saab Haute Couture shows with the couture bride, who is typically clad in some breathtaking bespoke creation or another, with sweeping dresses and exquisite embroidery that celebrates his craft in all of its glory.
But now, he's making it official with an Elie Saab Bridal line, kicking it off with 25 extraordinary wedding dresses that stay true to the brand's design femininity-meets-daring ethos—gowns cut from clouds of tulle, slinky lace columns that reveal glimpses of skin here and there, and jumpsuits reimagined with floral embroidery and minimalist silhouettes. To round out the range, the collection also includes shorter dresses, along with bridal accessories, including matching veils, Swarovski crystal-encrusted headbands, shoes, and clutches.
Elie Saab Bridal won't be available until October (in all Elie Saab boutiques and select department stores), but in the meantime, click through for a major dose of wedding dress inspo from Elie Saab, Marchesa, and more designers from Bridal Fashion Week.
