Want to look like a star on your wedding day? These gowns will let you steal a celebrity’s style

We’ve all dreamed of donning a gown fit for the red carpet on our big day. Nicole Conner asks Scottish bridal stores and designers what looks they’d give celebs who married in 2021…

Jasmine Tookes

If a Disney princess got married in real life, we suspect her wedding would look a lot like Victoria’s Secret model Jasmine Tookes’ enchanting Ecuadorian nuptials. Channelling Grace Kelly in a long-sleeved lace number, she looked every inch the fairytale bride.

For Scottish brides wanting to emulate her style, Sottero and Midgley’s Zander gown at Amy King Bridal and Beauty is sure to stun. “Zander oozes glamour. Chantilly lace and a breathtaking train give it a traditional edge, but fashionable elements – like a sheer bodice and scattered 3d florals – make it modern too,” affirms Amy.

Lucy Watson

Despite her wedding taking place in the Greek heat, Made In Chelsea’s Lucy Watson opted to push the boat out with an enormous, off-the-shoulder tulle gown. For an equally extravagant look, check out Loreli from Demetrios’s Platinum collection at Kathleen Richmond Couture.

“This gown exudes opulent glamour,” says Barry Richmond at the store. “Lavish embroidered lace adorns this magnificent off-the-shoulder ballgown with subtle sweetheart neckline and opulent cathedral train.”

Ariana Grande

It was no surprise that popstar Ariana Grande looked sensational at her intimate, at-home wedding when she walked down the aisle in a custom Vera Wang gown. Luckily for Scottish brides, Vera Wang Bridal has arrived at Kavelle Couture in the capital.

The Amadine gown from the new collection bears striking similarities to the singer’s silk charmeuse number. Tony Landa at the boutique says: “This gown is sophisticated and similar to Ariana’s. These dresses are pitched at ‘intelligent’ price points meaning more brides can afford the red-carpet looks offered to celebrities.”

Gwen Stefani

When songstress Gwen Stefani tied the knot at an Oklahoma ranch, she opted for a typically bold look, pairing her extravagant tulle Vera Wang gown with some white stiletto cowboy boots.

If you’re looking for a similarly dramatic skirt, the Orchid gown from Enzoani’s Blue collection may just take your fancy. “The volume created by the tulle and organza train is astounding,” enthuses Megan Carberry from Kudos Bridal Boutiques (Dunfermline).

“It’s so airy and romantic like Gwen’s, but with enough drama to create an extra twist. We love its lace details and the semi-sheer back too.”

Lara Stone

“The Amanda gown is an enchanting, soft and intricately detailed dress that is fit for a star,” beams Louise Kelly from Kudos Bridal Boutiques (Edinburgh). The dress, from Rosa Clará’s Boheme collection, bears stunning similarities to Dutch supermodel Lara Stone’s look from her intimate summer nuptials.

She opted for a long-sleeved number with a flattering V-neck and embroidered detailing. And with on-trend flowing balloon sleeves and a detachable chiffon train that will take you from day to night, you’ll feel like you’re walking down the runway in this gown.

Lady Kitty Spencer

As the niece of Princess Diana, it comes as no surprise that Lady Kitty Spencer’s Dolce and Gabbana bridal looks scored high in the fashion stakes. The gown worn for her ceremony, which was one of five throughout the day (yes, really), was incredibly chic: all lace, full skirt and puffed sleeves.

Georgia Ross at Magnolia Lane Bridal earmarks the Chandler gown by House of St. Patrick for brides looking to go all-out with their dress. The embroidered tulle and lace details and voluminous skirt pack a punch while still remaining feminine.

Binky Felstead

“This vintage-inspired wedding dress is the perfect way to celebrate personal style, whilst creating an iconic signature look,” says Kirsty Grant at Dream Brides.

Romantica’s glamorous twenties style Livia gown nods to the dress worn by Made In Chelsea’s Binky Felstead. At her civil ceremony in London during the summer, she draped a floral-appliquéd bolero over an ivory slip dress.

Camilla Thurlow

After coupling up with her now-husband Jamie Jewitt on the reality dating show Love Island, stunning Scot Camilla Thurlow wed in a sleek fit-and-flare gown with a sweetheart neckline. Keira Stocks from Dundee’s Innate Bridals suggests this gorgeous mikado ballgown by Allure Bridals to mimic her aesthetic.

“This is a ballgown, so not exactly the same silhouette as Camilla’s, but the fabric and bodice are similar. Her dress also had interesting detail at the back, as this one does in the form of a lovely bow.”

Issa Rae

If you can’t wear a ballgown on your wedding day, then when can you? Take a leaf out of actress Issa Rae’s book with the jaw-dropping Federica gown by Ronald Joyce, which is a dupe of her custom Vera Wang couture number. Chrissy Pratt at the label says this dress would be ‘perfect’ for a glitzy celebrity wedding.

“Made of organza, beaded tulle and glitter tulle with a strapless neckline, this gown is everything that a modern princess might desire. The voluminous, sparkling skirt, comprised of layers of opulent fabrics, will twinkle as you walk down the aisle,” she says.

Lily Collins

Despite the wacky and wonderful outfits worn by her Emily In Paris character, actress Lily Collins chose a subtle and elegant look for her big day. Her long-sleeved lace number was the epitome sophistication and is almost a doppelgänger of Joyce Young Design Studios’ Anastasia dress.

“This contemporary, laser-cut lace gown would be an ideal choice for any celebrity bride, but equally as beautiful on the girl-next-door getting married in a Scottish castle,” moots designer Joyce.
