When it comes to wedding dresses, brides-to-be look for inspiration via a variety of mediums, from bridal magazines to Bridal Fashion Week. One frequently untapped resource is the haute couture runways. We’ve been big proponents of meticulously scrutinizing what those upscale Parisian collections have to offer as designers traditionally close their shows in grand fashion with a show-stopping wedding dress. But there are also quite a few bridal looks peppered into the presentations, including white dresses prime for a red carpet or a walk down the aisle to crisp pantsuits perfect for the office or a trip to city hall.
This season, there were lots of colorful bridal picks, from blushing shades to a bold yellow piece topped by a coordinating veil to a hot pink covering and even a golden strapless gown ideal for the unconventional bride. Stark white and creamy ivory hues weren’t pushed aside by the rainbow of alternatives, however. Extensive embellishments, supremely structured details and a slew of capes helped make the more traditional colors seem more modern. So if you’re still in the planning stages of your upcoming nuptials and haven’t honed in on the type of wedding dress you’ll be saying “I do” in, here are the top bridal looks straight from the Spring 2017 Haute Couture shows for you to lust over.
