When it comes to creating breathtaking wedding gowns, few people do it better than these five women: Monique Lhuillier, Carolina Herrera, Karen CraigGeorgina Chapman and Misha Nonoo (above).

And while the world has delighted in their designs for celebs—like Jessica Simpson, Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Richie—we haven’t had the chance to obsess over their most personal work yet: Their own bridal gowns.

So we convinced each lady to open up their wedding albums and share a never-before-seen photo from their big day.

Spoiler alert: All of the gowns you are about to see are nothing short of spectacular.

“I actually got married before we began designing bridal, so I took one of the gowns from our runway collection and had it custom made in an ivory color. It was one shouldered and had a hand embroidered bodice and a flowing chiffon empire skirt. It was perfect for a countryside wedding in North Wales.” the Marchesa co-founder explained.

“I designed my own wedding dress. It was an embroidered and pleated tier tulle ball gown with a corseted bodice,” shared the Marchesa co-founder.

“I chose a very traditional dress. It was a silk white duchess satin drop-waist gown, off the shoulders, with lace appliques and a bustled skirt. I also had a long cathedral veil to match. It was the third dress I tried on!” said Lhuillier.

“For my wedding day, I designed my own gown, which was made entirely out of my three favorite types of lace: Chantilly, Binche and Guipure. I particularly enjoyed being able to share this moment with the garment district—specifically the pattern makers and seamstresses who supported me when I was just starting out,” the designer remembered, adding: “I met my husband at an internship in London. I was 17 and tried to get him to do my work for me. I was a bit bossy but he was still willing to do it for me. We’ve been together ever since.”

Although today she is best known for her jaw-dropping ball gowns, back in 1968 Herrera chose to exchange vows in a knee-length dress with floral appliqués.

  1. I’m looking for clothing and style ideas at a reasonable prices for a woman over 25.. . Anyone know any good sites or blogs?. . Seems like everything I find is either geared toward teens or is insanely expensive couture.. . Thanks!.

  2. I wish to write articles based on the information collected through some copyright books. I won’t copy – paste the material but edit or modify it in such a way that the meaning remains the same. I would also give credit to the books and their authors. Am I breaking any copyright laws?.
