When meeting with your hair stylist and/or makeup artist, it can be a good idea to bring photos of looks you love to help your pro get a sense of the styles you like. Often, celebrities’ red carpet style can provide great inspiration for wedding-day hair and makeup looks. But, which celebs do brides particularly love? We asked 6,500 WeddingWire users to share their wedding-day icons—and here are the results! For more hair and makeup inspiration, visit our WeddingWire photo galleries!
Even though just one photo and a few small details have been released from Allison Williams and Ricky Van Veen’s weekend nuptials, we still have major wedding-envy. From the secret Wyoming ranch location (learn more about it here!) to her amazing Oscar de la Renta gown (check out a similar style from the most recent collection), we’re absolutely swooning. Oh yeah, and then there’s the fact that everyone from Mindy Kaling to Lena Dunham to Katy Perry was there, and Tom Hanks was the officiant. It really doesn’t get much better than that.
At first glance this video has all the makings of a hit rom-com. A beautiful wedding, hilarious speeches, great music, and of course, Kevin Hart. Much like the movies she’s starred in, Gabrielle Union’s wedding to Dwyane Wade at Chateau Artisan in Miami, Florida on August 30, was the perfect blend of romance and fun. The first thing that made our jaws drop? The venue. The actress and her longtime basketball superstar love married at a modern-day castle surrounded by a moat, a perfect fit for the rom-com princess. The bride was walked down the aisle in a strapless sweetheart ball gown by Dennis Basso by Dwyane’s two sons and his nephew. Of course, no celebrity wedding is complete without the vocals of John Legend, who performed the ceremony music. A reception followed in a big room with floor-to-ceiling windows where Kevin Hart toasted the couple. Gabrielle herself also made a speech telling guests “dreams do come true,” which was followed by a gospel choir performance. Guests, which included Ludacris, ended the night by showing off their best moves on the dance floor. Talk about an uplifting reception!
This past Valentine’s Day Weekend one of our favorite pop singers, Lady Gaga, got engaged! Her actor/model boyfriend of four years, Taylor Kinney, proposed with a stunning heart-shaped ring. Gaga is well-known for her unique and jaw-dropping red-carpet looks, making us super curious about what she’ll opt to wear down the aisle. After sifting through some fall 2015 bridal market looks, we rounded up a few bridal looks that only mother monster would be able to pull off.
Sofia Vergara’s booming career has left her little time for wedding planning, but the actress told People Magazine she wants her big day to be more of a fun party than a traditional affair. She and fiance Nick Loeb say the celebration will involve a night of great music, lots of dancing, and delicious food. A breezy beach reception filled with vibrant colors, pretty lights and fresh ocean air fits the bill for this celebrity couple. And if her red carpet style is any indication, we can expect to see the bride showing off those curves in a hip-hugging trumpet gown with a sweetheart neckline.
