On her special day, NYC socialite Karen Shiboleth looked absolutely gorgeous in a dress by Kim Kassas Couture. She worked closely with Dor Yaakov, the brand's designer, to bring her vision to life. Karen's makeup was handled by Nariman, who is also Anna Wintour's makeup artist in London, and the her hair was styled by George Vallossian.
For the civil ceremony, head of fashion partnerships for Instagram, Clara Cornet, donned a classic Chanel white tweed dress by Virginie Viard. The bride complemented the look with a beautiful ensemble of a necklace, earrings, and rings from Danish brand Sophie Bille Brahe. For the second ceremony, she went for a backless silk dress and stylish square toe heels from Jacquemus' Chouchou collection. Clara finished off her stylish wedding weekend in a see-through piece by Coperni.
Living out her dream, actress Bel Powley chose a Miu Miu dress for her wedding, a brand she's been working closely with for years. She decided to go with a charmingly simple design — thin straps, a square neckline, a fitted bodice, and a bell-shaped skirt adorned with crystals and organza flowers. To complete her bridal ensemble, Bel opted for long pearl earrings by Sophie Bille Brahe. Later that evening, the bride also changed into her after-party look that was inspired by a design from Miu Miu’s spring 2021 collection.
Model Barbara Palvin put a lot of thought into her wedding wardrobe and decided to change not just once, but three times throughout the celebration day. She started off with a classic Vivienne Westwood, switched to a midi dress with a crisscross back by Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini, and wrapped up the day in a gorgeous red dress by Hungarian brand Mero.

Owner of Italian LuBar, Lucrezia Bonaccorsi had a fabulous wardrobe lineup for the wedding celebrations, featuring seven looks. All of them were from her mother's fashion and lifestyle brand, Luisa Beccaria. The highlight was Lucrezia's main dress, custom-made from embroidered taffeta fabric. As the festivities continued into dinner, Lucrezia charmed everyone in a haute couture gown from 1995, which was delicately crafted from tulle and had beautiful lace inserts.
Fashion editor Rosana Lai's wedding ceremony gown from Khyeli was a blend of modernity and romance. The look was complete with a stunning, detachable cape that could be swapped for a pair of long lace gloves. Rosana also chose a striking orange gown by Giuseppe di Morabito for the rehearsal dinner and a bespoke piece with gold details by Robert Wun for the Chinese Tea Ceremony.

Vogue Scandinavia's print editor, Allyson Shiffmane, had no hesitation when choosing her wedding dress. She's always been a huge fan of Dilara Findikoglu's creations and knew she wanted to team up with the designer for her dream gown. The collaboration resulted in a stunning corset dress with black ribbon detailing, an idea that resonated perfectly with Allyson's vision. Keeping things simple, she chose white Miu Miu ballet flats and her mother's tennis bracelet for jewelry. Her second look for the day was a sheer dress by Swedish designer Mega Mikaela.
As a fashion designer, Ester Manas personally worked on all three of her wedding fits. For the civil ceremony, the bride donned a knitwear dress paired with an oversized vintage wool suit jacket and stylish sandals. Her second look was a lingerie dress adorned with laces and intricate cutouts. Lastly, for the party, she wore a white jersey slip dress with delicate tulle accents. Ester complemented each ensemble with jewels from her brand's collection.
We just can't not mention the stunning outfits of fashion publicist Gia Kuan! The day before her wedding, the bride flaunted a gorgeous white satin dress from Bad Binch TongTong, featuring a gigantic bow at the back. For the first part of her special day, Gia donned a drop-waist Simone Rocha dress complete with a multi-tiered lace veil and silver Prada mules. She switched up her style twice during the evening, first rocking a red sequined minidress by Carly Mark of Puppets and Puppets, and then a charming pink set by Kim Shui.

Model Genevieve Abell found her Office Seven wedding dress by chance, but instantly knew it was the one. Even though the bride initially didn't plan on wearing a veil, a gorgeous floor sweeping bow from Kamperett changed her mind. To complete her effortlessly chic French-inspired wedding look, Genevieve chose ballet flats but eventually kicked them off to enjoy the celebration barefoot.
For her big day, Google brand manager Beanca Walker-Roby wanted something chic and classic yet with a playful twist. She was looking for an outfit that could effortlessly suit both a chapel ceremony and a lively Block Party entrance. And the Piera gown by Sarah Seven turned out to be the perfect fit for her vision! Beanca rounded off her look with stylish shoes and statement earrings from Cult Gaia.
In curating her wedding ensemble, creative consultant Louisa Kirk-Duncan took an unconventional route. She started by investing in Loewe sandals with an eye-catching balloon applique. When it came to her wedding gown, Louisa was all about breaking from tradition. Her heart was set on a cream-colored minidress with balloon sleeves from a special collection by Mango. To accessorize, she chose a spiral earring from Jacquemus, another from Chanel, and a chic white Prada bag.
Throughout her wedding celebration, artist Breanna Box made three outfit changes. She sported a vintage pearl-encrusted dress from her late mother, a stunning white "swan gown" by Robert Wun and a unique "mattress gown" designed by Samuel Lewis. For accessories, Breanna had a custom Mugler-inspired draped silk veil, vintage gloves, and self-designed bags.
For her two-day Berlin wedding, content creator Nisi showcased three gorgeous outfits. The highlight was a head-to-toe "Old Celine" look for the registry office ceremony, featuring a white dress with a black fishnet insert from the brand's Spring/Summer 2013 collection. The bride paired it with earrings, sandals and a clutch — all of which were also from Celine's Phoebe Philo era. For dinner, Nisi opted for a combination of a Cortana skirt, Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini top, Chanel pumps, and jewelry from Sophie Bille Brahe. For the party, Nisi changed into a lace-trimmed dress from Beaufille, which she styled with Chanel earrings and white sandals from The Row.
