You contain multitudes: your many skills, your varied talents, your diverse interests, your cultivated tastes and, of course, your distinctive personal style. So, obviously you want all the opportunities to express yourself through your wedding day fashion.
And a bridal gown — or gowns — mean so much more than just a dress. What you wear is a statement on your personality, your excitement for your big day and your dreams for your future with your soul mate. So you want options, which are more than achievable with convertible layers and modular accessories in this season’s Galia Lahav Couture gowns that offer essentially two-in-one wedding looks.
Perhaps you want to be straightforward (and carry-on only) with your destination wedding packing. Or, you want to modify your wedding day aesthetic from royal wedding to dance floor-ready at a moment’s notice. Or you need gorgeously chic layering options for an outdoor evening celebration. So you do you, with these spectacular — and versatile — wedding ensembles to make into your own on your big day.
Feeling flirty or feeling sexy? Well, exude both vibes — and then some — with a sultry corseted ball gown, with romantic beaded swirling patterns and an on-trend basque waistline. A feathered off-the-shoulder capelet adds an Old Hollywood-referential effect, plus a dynamic element for all the photos and videos you’ll cherish forever.
Make the wedding aisle your red carpet in a sultry, convertible mermaid gown amped up with shimmering beaded lace embroidery and body-celebrating contouring. A detachable low-waisted skirt, which covertly attaches to the illusion side-panels on the brilliantly-embellished corset, helps you make that awe-inspiring entrance — and keep everyone guessing on your next move.
Jaws will drop — multiple times — as you make your grand entrance in this dazzling beaded gown, with a daring asymmetrical plunge back, which reaches around to offer a peek at the waistline. Add an air of mystery with a billowing tulle overdress layer, with alluring draped corsetry and sensational side-slit.
Reign over your celebration in a mermaid gown that’s dripping with opulent pearl and crystal embellishments. A corseted sweetheart neckline marries (sorry) romance with glamour, while the mélange of nude, white and metallic shimmer creates sensational dimension. For extra drama, pair the gown with a voluminous box-pleated over-skirt, with a sweeping cathedral train, also glimmering with exquisite adornments.
Take power-tailoring to a new level with a sleek and architectural slim-line gown, in a luxurious double-face silk satin. Extreme lace-up side-cut-outs — to be done or intentionally undone — and low-plunge detailing add an unexpected edgy element. Then, seize the big day with an exaggerated sharp-shouldered overcoat, with matching lace-up detailing on the flowing bell sleeves, that you really could wear again.
Sharp geometric angles counter the dreamy contouring and mermaid flounce of this sumptuous double-face silk satin gown. All eyes will be on you — and the intricate beaded lace embroidery in deco diamond shapes, deep-plunge corset bodice and beguiling décolletage through the strong-shouldered, high-neck bolero shrug.
Pairing this enchanting illusion gown, encrusted in beaded-embroidered lace florals, with a striking hooded cape actually offers you a trio of looks. Wear hood up, framing the face, for a captivatingly enigmatic moment or throw it back to don as an off-the-shoulder cloak silhouette for a majestic flourish. Finally, dramatically throw the robe off to reveal the gown’s seductive low-plunge back.
