With over two million followers, the Galia Lahav Instagram is filled to the brim with much-loved photographs. Our GALA wedding dresses, bridal couture gowns and real-life #GLBrides are ‘liked’ by thousands of you every day. So we decided to do a round-up of our 10 best and most popular Instagram posts of all time. Prepare to swoon.

The Bella gown

One of our highest-ranking Instagram posts, this shot is all about those twinkling lights, our glittering Bella gown and the sparkling #GLBride wearing it. Lauren looked absolutely dazzling in this long-sleeved design from our Le Secret Royal Part I couture collection. Taking inspiration from ripples of water, a nude slip is overlaid with shimmering embroidery to create the ultimate bridal glow. Lauren’s nude bridal manicure was the perfect finishing touch.

 

The Thelma gown

It’s not often you get to dress royalty, so when Queen Bey decided to wear our Thelma gown for her vow renewal ceremony with Jay Z, we were completely starstruck. The style icon chose the couture design from our Victorian Affinity collection, and features billowing sleeves, vintage-inspired lace and a curve-enhancing fishtail skirt. At Galia Lahav, we’re lucky enough to dress many wildly beautiful and talented celebrities for their events, but being a part of Beyoncé and her family’s special day was an honour. Our Instagram followers were just as excited about it as we were!

 

The Bellina gown

The Alegria collection’s Bellina gown is one of our most romantic. Soft silk tulle in the loveliest shade of blush, dramatic puffed sleeves and a corseted bust create an ultra-feminine silhouette. The off-the-shoulder neckline is a very current bridal style, loved for its elegant reveal of the décolletage without being too sexy. Everything about the Bellina is pretty – and the way Tali wedding photographers captured it in the light makes this shot truly arresting.

 

The Luca gown

Low-backed dresses are chosen by lots of brides looking for adding sensuality to their big-day look. The plunging back of the Luca from couture collection Queen of Hearts caught the attention of our followers. The deep-V cut is a summery statement and was a beautiful choice for this bride’s Marrakech wedding. Hand-embroidery and delicate sequins perfect the look.

 

The Fabiana gown

3D floral lace appliqué and spaghetti straps give this dress a youthful Midsummer Night’s Dream aesthetic. The Fabiana is from our Alegria collection of wedding dresses, which were all influenced by the romantic Latin culture, architecture and landmarks of Portugal. ‘Alegria’ means happiness in Portuguese – the best name to reflect these dresses’ place in the happiest days of our brides’ lives!

 

Signature couture

‘I need to try this on’, said one of our Instagram devotees when she saw this picture. And that’s exactly what this gown inspires in so many soon-to-be brides! It captures the majesty of Galia Lahav bridal couture: painstakingly designed and handmade dresses that are worthy of royalty. A double-layered corset and illusion sleeves with lace cuffs add just the right amount of edge to this couture creation.

 

The Tony gown

Natalie’s joyful smile and lush hair are what make this candid portrait so special; the Tony gown just adds to the magic as we’re given a stunning close-up of its floral motif. Hand-embroidered flowers are a signature Galia Lahav finishing touch, while those dainty straps were a custom alteration requested by the bride. And this gown does look like it was made for her, thanks to our dedicated seamstresses who make every single wedding dress to order.

 

The Gia gown

Just look how gorgeous that couple is! This very sweet photo of real couple Aylin and Tobias sums up everything we love about working with brides: we get to help create their most special and joyful day and make them feel their best for it. Aylin truly did look spectacular in the Gia gown, one of our most popular designs from the Le Secret Royal II collection. Strapless sweetheart neckline, crystal embellishments and trailing embroidery make this nature-inspired dress effortlessly striking.

 

The G-112 jumpsuit

Chic bridal jumpsuits are the fashion-forward trend that’s here to stay. The G-112 is a GALA favourite – and our Instagram followers agree. Tailored high-waisted trousers are paired with a delicately floral-embroidered bustier and detachable statement train to achieve an extremely empowering look. This alternative ensemble is undeniably stylish. Perfect for the bride who wants to do something different.

 

The Bellina gown (again!)

We had to end with fireworks, of course. This is a quintessential big-day shot, filled luminous sparklers and radiating love. It’s one of our favourite real-life wedding photos, as well. And our followers love the Bellina gown so much that it’s made it into our top 10 most popular Instagram posts not once, but twice!
