10 celebrity wedding dress choices that beautifully break from tradition

When it comes to wedding attire, some people are all about tradition – and that’s fine. Tradition can be beautiful and sentimental but you can re-work the rules, particularly when it comes to your dress. Sometimes, going down the non-traditional route is what elevates the gown to unforgettable. As small wedding gatherings will soon be permitted, below are ten celebrity dresses we’re still talking about – for future inspiration 


OLIVIA PALERMO

Palermo’s stunning Carolina Herrera ensemble – crew-neck jumper, shorts and an embroidered tulle overlay – was an understated choice but looks so, so chic.

WHITNEY PORT


Her custom high-low wedding dress she co-designed with Ashis Studio is out-of-this-world and those floral wedding shoes by Paul Andrews are to die for.

SOLANGE KNOWLES

This Humberto Leon for Kenzo caped number is beyond beautiful – it feels very traditional yet has an ode to modernity; the cape adds another layer and texture.

POPPY DELEVINGNE

Model and socialite Delevingne (Yes, big sister of Cara), wore custom Emilio Pucci by Peter Dundas for her second wedding. We love everything about this floral peplum gown.

KEIRA KNIGHTLEY


Knightley’s short, ballerina-esque Chanel Haute Couture dress has been re-worn on a few different red carpet outings since her 2013 nuptials. Its elegant simplicity completely works.

A post shared by Lydia Hearst (@lydiahearst) on


Model and actress Hearst chose a pink ombre Christian Siriano gown with a high-low hem for her 2016 wedding to comedian and TV host Chris Hardwick.


For her 2014 New Orleans-themed nuptials to fellow actor Stephen Kay, Perabo decided on long-sleeved silver Michael Kors gown – who says you can’t do a metallic wedding dress?

KRISTEN BELL

Her outfit was black, low-key and the whole wedding apparently only cost less than $150.

ELIZABETH TAYLOR

Elizabeth married Eddie Fisher in 1959. She wore a moss green hooded chiffon dress by Jean Louis – a reminder that short and chic make for the best wedding outfits.

This former Glee star tied the knot with Mumford and Sons’ Winston Marshall in an off-the-runway nude Valentino gown and delicate crown.
