These 4 celebrity weddings are perfect for summer “I do” inspiration


Seeking summer wedding dress inspiration? From lacy romantic frocks to 1920s glamour fashions, celebrities offer summer wedding style inspo!

If summer love has turned into planning a walk down the aisle, we know what you need: Wedding dress inspiration! We can look to our favorite celebrities who recently tied the knot for the best looks and trends. Rather than play “who wore it best,” we’re sharing the best inspiration from these gorgeous wedding dresses worn by lovely ladies in love.

Kelsea Ballerini

What to do if you can’t choose which wedding dress to wear this summer? Take your style cue from Kelsea Ballerini, who wore several different fashions during her wedding weekend.

The “I Hate Love Songs” songstress wore a flowing gown by Berta. The lacy bodice featured a plunging neckline that flattered Kelsea’s figure. Bring on the romance with the full skirt and complete it with two slits. And since the ceremony was held on the beach, Ballerini showed her boldness by going barefoot.

Soon after Kelsea exchanged vows, she swapped her gown for an outfit by Grace Loves Lace. And Ballerini didn’t stop there. She finished up her wedding weekend in a Tadashi Shoji jumpsuit.

Wedding style takeaway: If you want to feel freer during your post-wedding reception or dance event, consider becoming a quick-change artist. This is particularly advantageous in the summer when you might want to wear a long, flowing gown for your ceremony and then slip into a teeny tiny sleeveless style for an outdoor reception.

Ashley Greene

Ashley Greene (also known as Alice Cullen in the Twilight series) chose to have her ceremony held in a grove of redwood trees. Ashley told Brides that she and her new husband are “both romantics.”

While Ashley chose a dress that bared her back for the wedding ceremony, it’s her reception gown that’s giving us inspiration vibes. Greene chose Windi Williams-Stern, owner of Studio Unbiased, to craft the frock, and we tracked down the design modeled by Ashley herself on Windi’s Instagram.

This fabulous gown is sheer romance with its 3-D flowers. Ashley calls the result a “masterpiece,” praising the designer as a “magician.”

Wedding style takeaway: Summer is the time to go for sheer brilliance. Appliques in romantic shapes such as flowers can turn your wedding gown into a lacy artful cloud.

Kaley Cuoco

Kaley Cuoco took a trip back in time, going for the 1920s bridal look. The glamour of that era was transformed by Reem Acra into a stunning silk chiffon gown.

But can we talk about that beaded cape? While the floral appliqués are lovely, the embroidered tulle puts this bridal outfit over the top.

Wedding style takeaway: Channel the 1920s and get your glitzy glamour on with a fabulously extravagant cape.

Vanessa Paradis

Vanessa Paradis chose to keep it simple and traditional, and the result was gorgeous. Her white dress with its sheer sleeves and tiered skirt channels old-fashioned bridal gowns. For an accessory, Vanessa channeled throwback styles with her mantilla white silk veil.

Wedding style takeaway: Traditional simplicity is beautiful. If your mother still has her wedding gown and has been hinting that she’d love you to wear it for your summer wedding, consider going for the sentimental style approach by wearing her frock or, perhaps, her veil.
