We all know that the best part of any awards show actually happens before the show even stars, the red carpet! Offering up expert critique on the ensembles the hottest stars are donning is arguably the most fun part about awards season. As a bride-to-be, this is also a great place to look for bridal fashion inspo since the aisle is basically your own red carpet. Lucky for the recently engaged, there was no shortage of wedding day looks at this year’s Golden Globes.
