Kaviar Gauche

Price Range: $460 – $6,660

German fashion house Kaviar Gauche stole our attention at the end of 2020 with their incredible new bridal collection, Cloud 9.

Aware of the quickly-changing bridal world – with Covid-19-era weddings adding smaller events & garnering a need for alternative dresses shoppable online – Kaviar Gauche created a civil line that allows brides to make a big statement even with a mini dress (and mini budget!)

Find drama with even the smallest of dresses, adorned with twirl-worthy fringe and eye-catching silhouettes. The collection includes all the needs of a 2021 bride: mini shorts and dramatic overskirts, tailored pants and sexy bridal blazers, jumpsuits, midi dresses, to-die-for minis & even a modern ballgown.

Their past collections, also shoppable online, include even more lavish embellishments ready for your bigger event, hopefully soon to come.

Arcade Vintage Boutique

Price Range: $200 – $1,100

Another treasure trove of vintage bridal gems from our friends down under. Arcade Vintage Boutique curates a gorgeous wedding dress collection alongside their everyday wear, from luxuriously beaded 1920s dresses to long-sleeved lace gowns from the 1970s. With new collections of vintage wear arriving periodically, you always have a chance to find a one-of-a-kind wonder.

One thing we truly love about Arcade Vintage Boutique is that they photograph their bridal collection on-location rather than in-studio. We find that often it’s hard to “imagine yourself” in a vintage gown on your wedding day when they’re normally photographed on mannequins or in-studio catalog shots. Arcade goes the extra mile to show you how beautiful & special these gowns will make you feel on your wedding day.

PS: for brides looking for the perfect, vintage cape, this lace bridal jacket has the most incredible train!

Dub this one a “Claire Favorite”, our Editor-in-Chief has been inundating the Bridal Musings group chats with every single gown by The Own Studio. And rightly so! Our latest bridal designer discovery from the UK has the team spellbound by their unique take on the sexy, silk wedding gown.

Not just another bias-cut slip dress, The Own Studio has created a collection of silk wedding gowns that feature one-of-a-kind detail and avant-garde silhouettes. Take Style 023 for example, this would-be-halter-gown features illusion paneling and eye-catching sleeves – a sleek bridal style we truly haven’t seen before. Or Claire’s favorite Style 017, which is a smooth satin silk halter that reveals the most unexpected & stunning scarf tie & keyhole back.
