Want to look like an A-lister on your wedding day? Nicole Conner asks boutiques what dresses they stock that match recent celebrity brides
Opus Couture have a dress to match Paris Hilton’s style
You’d expect OTT antics at Paris Hilton’s wedding and she didn’t disappoint – she wore six gowns no less across her wedding weekend. However, it was the custom-made Oscar De La Renta number which she wore to tie the knot in that really got people talking: the Grace Kelly-inspired gown featured a chic high neck, long sleeves and huge princess tulle skirt.
The Fayette gown from Atelier Pronovias, available at Opus Couture, offers a similar aesthetic, as the store’s Susan Lightbody explains: “With its light skirt and soft lace sleeves, this dress is not only incredibly chic, but also super-comfortable to wear all day.” Perfect for brides who want to dance into the wee hours!
Sofia Richie’s high-necked lace gown can be emulated with WTOO‘s Sela

Scottish brides can get their hands on a dupe of the latter with Wtoo by Watters’ Sela number. Two stores in Scotland carry this label: Ayr’s Unbridaled Boutique and Bella Bridal Boutique in Linlithgow.
Kudos Bridal Boutique (Dunfermline) have the perfect gown for Stacey Solomon’s

Get the look with Kirra by Wendy Makin, available at Kudos Bridal Boutiques (Edinburgh). “This is a deceptively simple gown, deriving its impact from the beautiful square neckline and the luxurious stretch crepe fabric which bestows a stunning figure-hugging profile.

Carolyn Baxter can make bride’s a show-stopping look like JLO’s
Do you want to bring the glamour of Hollywood to your big day? Edinburgh dressmaker Carolyn Baxter’s line of gowns can help you do exactly that.

A gown similar to Britney Spears’ w-day number is offered at Unbridaled Boutique
Pop icon Britney Spears opted for a sleek off-shoulder Versace gown with a daring thigh slit when she married at home in LA.
“The Vivianna gown by Jenny Yoo has similar style credentials to Britney’s dress, and is made from luxe heavyweight satin,” reveal the team at Ayr’s Unbridaled Boutique. “The corseted bodice makes the wearer feel snatched at the waist, and its draping is both romantic and strategic for any brides who – unlike Britney – may be self-conscious of their tummies.”
Sassi Holford have a chic dupe of Sophie Habboo’s ceremony gown
After sending the wedding world into a frenzy with the Vivienne Westwood mini dress she sported for her legal ceremony to Made in Chelsea co-star Jamie Laing, Sophie Habboo set her w-day dress standards high. For her wedding in Spain, she opted for something totally different: a bespoke backless Emma Beaumont gown with long sleeves and a sweetheart neckline. Brides looking for something similar will adore Sassi Holford’s Isabella gown with its flattering column skirt, lace sleeves and sexy, plunging neckline.
A style similar to Olivia Attwood’s sleek wedding gown is available at Opus Couture
Love Island star Olivia Attwood married footballer Bradley Dack wearing a jaw-dropping Galia Lahav gown in the summer. The dress featured on-trend removable sleeves and off-the-shoulder detailing – both of which are hallmarks of this gorgeous all-lace Berta gown available at Opus Couture in West Kilbride.
This figure-hugging number also has a see-through back to inject a touch of sexiness, but the lace helps keep it on the right side of demure. Pair with a lace choker to really emulate Olivia’s look and – et voilà – you’re red-carpet ready.
