“Wow. Just freaking wow.” That was my sincere thought when the stars rocked the red carpet at the 2016 Golden Globe Awards. We found loads of wedding inspiration in their fashion forward looks, so we thought you might want to find some Rent the Runway and budget look-a-likes. Fun times are definitely in store for 2016 when it comes to choosing one amazing wedding dress. So get ready to turn your wedding aisle into one classy red carpet style soiree.
Take The Plunge Dress
This year the plunge dress is all the rage, and the deeper the plunge the more fashion forward the dress. Saoirse Ronan really went for it in this gorgeous Saint Laurent gown. This dress is definitely for the bride who isn’t afraid to make an epic statement.
You can take the plunge on a budget when you Rent the Runway with a White Lea Gown by camilla and marc, $70. Or check out some pre-owned plunging necklines from J. Mendel Paris at oncewed!
The Vintage Inspired Romantic Dress
Rooney Mara went the extra mile combining two trends that have hit the bridal runway this season. She plunged fully fashion forward in this Alexander McQueen number that didn’t fall short on romantic detail.
When it comes to showing off your romantic style, you’ll want to get a bit cheeky and think outside the box. We found a gorgeous Monique Lhuillier Tulle Trumpet Dress in the bridesmaid dress section at Nordstrom. I mean, why not!? All anyone is going to think is that you look phenomenal in a blush designer dress.
The Timeless Sweetheart
Taraji P. Henson left us in awe with her flair for the dramatic in this sweetheart gown designed by Stella McCartney.
Get creative and go for this Jill Jill Stuart Strapless Crepe Fitted Column Gown at Zappos, $388. Just as dramatic, and you can always have a seamstress attach a panel on the back for a modern train.
The Conservative Classic
I’m not going to discount the conservative brides. Some women just aren’t comfortable showing a lot of skin, and want a dress that is a little more conservative. While Jane Fonda’s dress was controversially on the conservative side of fashion, Laverne Cox rocked the look in this Elizabeth Kennedy dress.
Grab a look-a-like on Custom Celebrity Dresses for $149. Or Rent The Runway in a Badgley Mischka look-a-like dress for $115.
