Engagements have been cropping up everywhere recently, with one particularly close to us as Studio Ombre HQ, so we've turned our design eye to outfits fit for happy couples.
We looked to the very recently Paris Couture Week for inspiration and found some spectacular garments for members of every wedding party, regardless of aesthetic.
Alberta Ferretti Limited Edition F/W 17 Couture
Lace, feathers, pleating... This collection is a vintage lover's el Dorado with beautifully proportioned dresses that skirt the line between costume and couture but always land on the side of impecccably tailored perfection.
The coral embroidery and scalloped ruffled give us an undeniably marine vibe so we can see these dresses walking down the aisle on an old pier by the sea in Brittany with the reception in a lighthouse.
Vêtements F/W 17 Couture
Make your worse nightmare a dream come true with these looks that resemble waking up late on your wedding day in soviet Russia, throwing on whatever is lying on the ground, calling it couture, and running out the door.
The next time you see hip-high boots, remember they may just come in handy when you least expect it.
Elie Saab F/W 17 Couture
Looking to the past can sometimes be the most modern, and with the Art Deco and Art Nouveau references in Saab's latest couture collection, we think he's keeping it 100 (years ago).
The hand-embroidery and delicate appliqué work on these gowns is astounding and just goes to prove that traditional garments always look more modern with contemporary, luxurious finishes.
Alexis Mabille F/W 17 Couture
What are wedding dresses if not the intersection between volume and fantasy. Mabille's odd collection of what seem to be exclusively wedding party garments takes us to the past, the future, and after party of weddings.
From daring architectural pieces to demure, form-fitting pieces, each of these dresses is an exercise in romance with a little history lesson thrown in for good measure.
Dolce & Gabbana F/W 17 Couture
To be honest, D&G aren't our favourite designers but this collection of outlandish near-costume couture is the right mix of romance and drama for a day that's all about pageantry.
Happy couples in contrasting outfits made using ultra-luxe materials that go a little over-the-top. Is there any other day more appropriate for splurging on something as joyous and daring as this?
