A Vera Wang gown might be out of the question for you, but for Barbie? Piece of cake. Use the Vera Wang Bride: The Traditionalist Barbie Doll as a topper (along with a suited and booted Ken of course) or as part of a quirky centerpiece and pay homage to the designer without crushing your budget, around £106.

Sophia Webster, how we love you. Just when we thought the designer’s ‘Wifey for Lifey’ courts couldn’t be topped, she collaborates with Barbie on a range of women’s and children’s shoes, celebrating the doll’s first pair of flats. There’s high tops and slip-ons, but we squealed over the heels, especially these dolly-beaded Tyra shoes, £395.

Life in plastic, it’s fantastic with retro brand Truffle Shuffle’s Perspex Barbie logo statement necklace, £7.99.
