Top Wedding Dress Designers Every Bride Should Know

Top Wedding Dress Designers Every Bride Should Know

It's taken as read that all young women daydream about their future nuptials, imagining everything from the wedding flowers and menu to the happy couple's first dance. Right? But not every female can relate to that feeling. It's safe to say that I don't. 

When a friend initially asked me to predict what sort of wedding gown I'd want to wear, I was stumped. What sort of wedding dress should I get? Which would you recommend: a cheap dress or a more expensive one? What should I do, taking trends into account or not? All of these were concerns of mine, and I'm sure of any future bride's, as we searched for the perfect dress.

It may be just as challenging to track down the perfect wedding dress as it is to locate the perfect partner. There's also the strain and financial burden of planning a wedding. The presence of so many amazing artists, from renowned designers to up-and-coming stars, makes even the idea of getting ready for the big day exciting. In this vein, I've done some digging to uncover the top five wedding dress designers now enjoying widespread acclaim among the fashion set. Whether you're really planning a wedding or are just intrigued, you should keep these designers in mind.

Danielle Frankel

Danielle Frankel

It's hard to predict when you'll experience a whirlwind romance, but Danielle Frankel's meteoric rise in the fashion industry was always a given. The bridal atelier, founded by Danielle Hirsch in 2017, has swiftly become a favorite of the fashion forward. It's in part due to the fact that Hirsch was invited to participate in the 2019 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund before any other wedding designer. Hirsch's bizarre aesthetic choices are ultimately responsible. You can't help but swoon over a Danielle Frankel dress, what with the Chantilly lace, satin-piped corsets, and bubble hems.

Markarian

Markarian

In a universe filled with billions of lives spread out across countless generations, it's hard to fathom finding your true love. A comet viewing is a moment as exceptional as any other, therefore an equally unusual costume is in order. Markarian takes the initiative and comes forward. Alexandra O'Neill opened this New York City shop in 2017 to sell "celestial romanticism" bridal and evening gowns. Because of this, you'll notice that the designs are timeless and the craftsmanship is impeccable (floor-length silk column gowns adorned with bows, crystal embellishments, and embroidered-on sequins). Consequently, the selection of bridal gowns seems to be extraterrestrial.

Vivienne Westwood

Vivienne Westwood

 If you can't find the right wedding dress, make it yourself. Punk pioneer and legendary fashion designer Vivienne Westwood reportedly did just that in 1962. Since then, custom-made wedding gowns and the designer's haute couture creations have been all the rage. Any Vivienne Westwood dress, with its exposed corsetry, recycled tulle, vegan silk, and three-dimensional ornamentation composed of crystals, pearls, and ostrich feathers, will not be mistaken for a "traditional" wedding gown.

Khaite

Khaite

Your preconceived notions of the New York-based label Khaite may be cast aside since the brand is always developing and evolving. Since launching her ready-to-wear label in 2016, Catherine Holstein has kept the fashion world on its toes with her unconventional take on high fashion. The essence of this brand may be summed up in the phrase "low-key luxury," in contrast to the "more is more" mentality of certain other houses. Not at all affluent looking. Instead, it uses a soft, romantic tone, as though speaking to a lover. But don't fall for it. The bridalwear made by Khaite is by far the most intriguing thing company sells. The brand's simple dresses are perfect for an intimate ceremony since they don't need a lot of embellishment but yet look stunning because of their ballerina-inspired drop waists, expert pintuck pleats, and cozy cotton.

Galvan

Galvan

Choosing an outfit may be challenging in general, but it's much more so when it's for your wedding. Thankfully, Galvan is a real thing. Katherine Holmgren, Carolyn Hodler, Anna-Christin Haas, and Sola Harrison launched this company in 2014, and it now makes some of the most sophisticated bridalwear on the market. Its designs are simple and versatile, making them suitable for your wedding and any other event thereafter (Such as floor-length silk jacquard halter-neck gowns and matching white suiting pieces).
