Body Shape Match: All body types (styling tricks like belts and shoes help highlight the features you love!).

In a year filled with such turmoil, changed plans, postponed and virtual weddings, it could feel odd to be focusing on fashion. But with every story, we found that looking at the positives and focusing on the beautiful elements that make up a wedding day was always present. And that includes the wedding dress.

Choosing a wedding outfit is such a milestone in the wedding planning process, that even the couples who chose to scale down their celebrations didn’t skimp on fashion. Whether it was opting for a sublimely chic lace shift dress instead of a traditional ballgown, showing some whimsy in a pouf-sleeve mini dress, or just saying “to hell with it, I’m wearing the dress anyway!”—2020 brides were up against a lot of challenges and showed tremendous creativity and resilience as they plotted a new course.

Whether it was for a pre-COVID blowout, an ocean-side micro-wedding, or an at-home elopement, this crop of brides were just as fashionably epic as the last year’s—and they had a lot more to deal with!

A Custom Made Gown

“I bought my first dress prematurely,” Upile Chisala admits. “It took a few months for me to regret the purchase and that is when I emailed my dear friend Syreeta and asked her to make me the real dress of my dreams.” Together, Upile and Syreeta spent weeks going back-and-forth, going from an ivory mermaid style to the final masterpiece: a stunning satin ballgown made of a nude-pink material that the bride found on Etsy.

“She [Syreeta] singlehandedly made this heavy dress in Maryland while I was in South Africa! I only tried it on once and my sister, Ngawina, brought it with her to South Africa. It had its own suitcase on the plane!” she admits with a laugh. “This dress was very mine not only because it was custom and Syreeta let me participate as much as I could, but because it was the result of love and came together because of so many people and cultures.”

Her advice? “Please do not buy a dress on your very first trip to the dress shop! If you love a dress, go home, and have a think about it before swiping your card. Sit down and be honest about how exactly you envision yourself on the day. “https://3ca75955d7967ae53aa08bc1fd204244.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-37/html/container.html02of 30

On the second day of their wedding celebration, this couple threw a mehndi party, where guests were adorned with henna. The room was decorated with South Asian lanterns and antique lamps to evoke the Lake Palace, then accented with cascading orange and pink flowers. For this party, Monis Alam opted for an untraditional look: She wore a magenta lehenga choli, customized by Pakistani designer Ali Xeeshan.

The designer has been a friend for years, so Monis knew that she would wear one of his conceptions. After narrowing it down to three outfits, Monis sought her father’s advice, someone who has long shared her love of fashion. “When he suggested I go for the third look, I knew he was right,” Monis says of her final look, which included a custom dupatta.

Josiane de Fatima Gomes Monteiro knew exactly what she wanted in a wedding dress so she e-mailed designer Luis Carvalho to make it happen. “Luis was amazing!

Ultimately, the gown was made with two pieces: a detailed underlay—that Josiane rocked on the dance floor later—and a long-sleeve draped wrap dress as a topper.https://3ca75955d7967ae53aa08bc1fd204244.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-37/html/container.html08of 30

Jenneh Bockari knew this dreamy BHLDN number was “the one” before she tried it on.

I tried it on last, just to give the others a fair shot.” Between the plunging neckline and back, floral appliqués, and tulle skirt, Jenneh says it “was just the perfect amount of interesting—and was so comfortable.”

Isha Sathya and Suraj Philips flew to India together to pick out their bridal looks, including Isha’s Sabyasachi sari. She wanted to honor her South Indian roots and wear a sari, and she was elated to happen upon this tulle number from an archival collection.

“When I stepped out of the fitting room with the sari draped perfectly, I knew it was the one,” Isha says. “The sparkles gave it the perfect amount of glamour without being over the top. It was edgy, modern, with a hint of sensuality.”18of 30

“I love it because it’s an upscale and more glamorous version of the types of things I typically wear,” says Clare Stone of her minimalist Alexandra Grecco crepe silk gown. To create the illusion of a slip dress, she added thin, delicate straps—a task that was completed mere minutes before the ceremony began. She adds, “There’s something so powerful about feeling like yourself on your wedding day.”19of 30

“I couldn’t stop thinking about it and was comparing all the other dresses I tried on to that one,” says Megan Roup of her silk chiffon gown by Reem Acra. However, while Megan knew the dress she wanted, she says saying “yes” wasn’t entirely seamless—she had to go dress shopping by herself thanks to COVID-19 restrictions!20of 30

Goddess Vibes in Sophie et Voila

Dulce Martin’s dress shopping experience was an international one. “I tried on dresses in Mexico, Los Angeles, Nashville, London, Paris, the Netherlands, and Spain,” she admits. “I also did it all by myself, as I wanted to hear myself think and decide according to what felt perfect for me, and I also wanted to surprise everyone, including my mom. Nobody saw the dress until I walked down the aisle.”

She ultimately chose two dresses: A custom-made gown for the ceremony and dinner by Sophie et Voila, and a second for the reception by Cortana Brides. “Both of them felt unique, they were both very comfortable to wear, and most importantly, they felt like me—or a very elevated version of me,” she says with a laugh. “They reflected two very different sides of who I am. One is classic, elegant, with a goddess vibe, while the other one is a little rebellious, and slightly sexy but simple and classic too.”21of 30

When Danielle Moson went shopping at The White Dress bridal boutique in California, two Adam Zohar gowns caught her eye. “I literally couldn’t decide,” she admits. “One was super geometric and edgy—what I always thought I’d wear—and the other was beautifully soft and romantic—not my personality at all.” But when she came back to the boutique the following morning, her dress choice was clear: She had to go with the latter, a light-weight long-sleeve chiffon gown with intricate floral details.

“Up until the day of the wedding, I thought I was going to wear a sage green collared shirt under my white blazer even though I never really loved the way it looked,” revealed Laine Strickland. But, she made a last-minute switch the day-of, wearing a floral 7Diamonds collard shirt with her white J. Crew suit instead. “I am so glad that I did and Kaila loved the whole look,” she says.
Kaila Strickland tried on several dresses before slipping into this strapless Pronovias number. “I loved it instantaneously,” she says of the gown, which featured a deep sweetheart neckline and lace overlay.

Lilla Goettler chose bridal separates from BHLDN. “I spent about a month trying the outfit on over and over again before I decided,” she admits. “I really wasn’t expecting to love a long-sleeved dress, but it ended up looking great and keeping me cozy.” She paired her dress with a pair of white sneakers. “The outfit didn’t feel completely right until I tried on the Converse,” she says. “It was a great androgynous touch that made the whole outfit feel more ‘me.’”26of 30

Following the ceremony, Maanasa Indaram changed into lace-and-crepe gown by Sarah Seven. “After having gone dress shopping several times in San Francisco, I was prepared to show my mom, mother-in-law, and sister the dress that I was intending to buy while on a trip back to New York,” she recalls. “However, when we walked into the studio, all our eyes caught this dress. It was comfortable but flattering, sweet but also very chic.” The icing on the cake? The designer was in the studio and gave the Maanasa her seal of approval. She says, “Sarah immediately stopped by our group to give me the thumbs up when she saw me in it!”27of 30

“I’ve modeled many wedding dresses during my career but never fell in love with any,” Meaghan Garland admits. But, when she tried on her Mikado silk dress by Pronovias, “it became the dress of my dreams!” Meaghan completed her look with a veil, pearl drop earrings, pearl hairpins, and a diamond-and-gold necklace passed down to her by her mother.

Kiyomi McCloskey chose a white suit made from the same Mikado silk material as Meaghan’s dress. “It was unique, chic, and everything I’d envisioned,” she says. She completed her look with personalized cufflinks—which were a gift from Meaghan—as well as a white tuxedo shirt and a white bowtie. Her boutonniere featured plum ranunculus, heuchera leaves, and olive branch.28of 30

Choosing a dress (or three!) was easy for Stephanie Puntillo: She turned to client-turned-friend Brandon Maxwell for everything she wore on her wedding day. “I told Brandon I didn’t want a big princess dress, but when I showed up for my first appointment, the photo I brought with me was of the biggest pink dress from his Spring 2019 collection,” Stephanie says with a laugh. For the ceremony, he created a white basket-weave organza ball gown with a fitted scoop-neck bodice. Stephanie wore her hair in a sleek chignon to match the gown’s clean lines.29of 30
