Whether you want to evoke Disney princess vibes or prefer something more modern, there’s surely a movie moment that aligns with your vision. To find your perfect, customized bridal style, check out 5 Galia Lahav gowns that reflect some of the most memorable wedding looks from the big screen.
Characterized by its billowing skirt and massive sleeves, Giselle’s wedding gown in Disney’s Enchanted is quite literally something straight out of a fairytale. The exaggerated silhouette might be a bit over the top for a real-life wedding, but lots of brides are after a similarly dreamy style.
Galia Lahav’s Lady G gown from the Do Not Disturb Collection is truly fit for a princess. The statement satin ballgown features detachable puff sleeves, so you can easily change up your look from ceremony to reception. The peplum corset top flows into a full gathered skirt with a pointed-tail train, creating the ideal amount of drama for your special day.
There’s a reason that Cinderella has been inspiring wedding gowns for decades. Brandy’s ball gown in the 1997 movie adaptation is classic, regal, and elegant, complete with a corset top, full skirt, and tulle cap sleeves.
A whimsical take on a classic Cinderella gown, the Esmeralda gown from Galia Lahav’s Amor collection features a crystal embroidery trimming the décolleté of the structured corset top as well sheer gloves with crystal embellishments.
Lace is a surefire way to create an elegant and timeless bridal look, and Allie’s wedding gown in The Notebook is no exception. The sheer panel paired with the off-the-shoulder neckline is endlessly chic and the addition of a satin skirt peeking from underneath the lace bodice creates interesting texture.
The Gina gown from Galia Lahav’s Amor collection offers an updated take on classic lace bridal looks. The sculptural dress boasts a draped off-the-shoulder silhouette and luxuriant French lace embroidery. The satin-covered buttons on the back panel also harken back to the delicate buttons along the top of Allie’s gown.
Crazy Rich Asians
The world took a collective gasp when Rachel’s gold-embellished gown was revealed in the 2018 film adaptation of Kevin Kwan’s novel Crazy Rich Asians. The sparkling details and layers create a breathtaking, head-turning look that’s fitting for the opulent affair.
For something similarly memorable, look no further than the Diamond gown from Galia Lahav’s Iconic collection. Its low-waisted corset is embellished with clear crystals for an ultra-glamorous feel and the layered skirt made of tulle ruffles is simply magical.
Kiera Knightly’s gauzy, feathery ensemble in Love Actually is a departure from the traditional bridal look, which is precisely what makes it so iconic. The juxtaposition of the gown’s long sleeves and sheer fabric is undeniably sexy yet chic.
The Leticia from Galia Lahav’s Amor collection is a similarly fresh take on a modern bridal look. Like Knightly’s dress, this gown features fluttery feathers along the A-line skirt, creating whimsical texture as well as playful movement. With its ballerina-inspired scooped neckline, delicate spaghetti straps, and floral embellishments, Leticia’s corset top adds a dainty, feminine feel.
