Lhuillier hails from the Philippines and is now regarded as one of the world’s premier fashion designers. Her Ms. Eternal Daydream Spring 2015 wedding dress collection wowed audiences with incredible bridal gowns, including her gorgeous classic off-white dress complete with flowing double layers, a slight sheen, and ruched detailing. She began designing wedding dresses in 1996 after being amazed at the lack of choice available when choosing a gown for her own wedding.
This American fashion designer creates outfits deemed to be the height of haute couture. As well as designing dresses for exhibitions and competitions, Wang is well-known for her stunning bridal gown designs and unique shows. Her latest showcase consisted of a short video outlining her dazzling range. Wang is famous for completely defying convention, and a prime example of this is her black and white wedding dress with a cut-out bodice and leather gloves. If you want to be the center of attention, choose Vera Wang!
Oscar was born in the Dominican Republic, and despite being 81 years of age, he still cuts a dashing figure and remains at the forefront of bridal gown design.

This Lebanese designer is fast gaining a glowing reputation, as an increasing number of stylish celebrities are turning to her for their ensembles. If you long for a bridal gown that is more than a little bit daring, look at Arca’s spring bridal collection. One of our favorites is the mini-gown, which is revealing yet elegant and gives you an adorable ballerina look. However, it is probably not the best choice if your guest list includes a plethora of traditionalists!
