Bridal Gowns

Inspired by Grace Kelly

To this day Grace Kelly remains not just a Hollywood icon but a Bridal icon as well. Her wedding photos are often featured on Brides-to-be inspiration boards as well as designers. So how can you get the look like the original fairytale princess?

The intricate and exquisite lace  long sleeved top is the focal point of Princess Grace’s gown. And this can be seen on many wedding dresses but with their own modern touches.

The belted waist detail on the skirt is also a key point on Grace Kelly’s wedding dress. The waist detail gives the silhouette shape and as your eye is drawn into it, it is a very slimming and flattering look.

If you’d prefer to have bridal separates instead of a dress inspired by this look, Watters has a skirt separate that you can pair with a long sleeved bridal top.

If you are not one for Ball Gowns or don’t have the body shape or height for it, fear not. Instead you can opt for an elegant A Line gown that still has notes of the the Princess of Monaco coming through. The two looks below are a pretty and modern take on the bridal icon so you can still channel your inner Grace.

If you are inspired by the lace detailing on Grace Kelly’s dress and want you wedding gown to concentrate on that, then find a dress that has all over lace detailing. The look below is feminine and has a romantic, slightly vintage feel to it. I love the high neck on this dress, much like the high neck on Grace Kelly’s.

Just as we’ll never forget Grace Kelly’s dress, we will always remember Kate Middleton’s wedding gown which you can see was inspired by Princess Grace. Sarah Burton, who designed the Duchess of Cambridge’s dress, did an amazing job bringing this look into the 21st century. Both of these real life fairytale princesses will forever be Bridal icons with their timeless and elegant looks.
