Dior’s spring garden motif was a collection a pastels with an occasional pop of neon. The structured jackets and corseted ball gowns were covered in floral patterns that are totally wedding worthy. And, like most recent Dior shows, a natural makeup palette is completed with a brightly colored lip. Love! Would you rock a bold lip for the wedding ?

In a variety of rainbow shades, every gown that came down the runway at Elie Saab was as dreamy as ever. However, what caught our eye the most the royal ball gown at the end of the show. Topped with a luxurious over-the-head lace veil, we were absolutely swooning.

Shortened lengths and narrow waists at Giambattista Valli offered a sexy take on tea-length dresses. What stole the show? Jeweled headpieces and floral belts by Rome designer Luigi Scialanga.

Valentino’s elaborate collection was anything but ordinary. We love this Audrey Hepburn-inspired short dress for it’s intricate detail and texture, sheer neckline and long sleeves. Sexy and sweet don’t you think?

The final look at Zurad Murad was breath-taking (as you can see). This glittery wedding gown was such a show stopper! A soft floral crown and veil was the perfect combination for this model bride. The new take on all-over lace? Shimmer and sheer.
