3 designer-inspired celebrations that will make you dream in couture


There’s no better way to get wedding inspiration than from the tastemakers themselves. So we created three distinct celebrations using three of the world’s top design houses as our muses. Check out these photos by Lori Konawalik of CaptureMeCandid Photography and be inspired to make your wedding fit for a fashionista.

Channel your inner Ralph Lauren country-club prep with a refined ensemble. Rich plaids, equestrian touches and classic staples will make your big day a timeless affair.


To give your fête a free-spirited sensibility worth of Missoni, take the celebration outdoors to a patchwork of blankets, poufs, and dazzling patterns. Color—and an elegant lunch on the grass—has never been more chic.

Embrace the avant-garde Alexander McQueen aesthetic with bold silhouettes, onyx ornamentation, and a heavy dose of metallics. Because when glamour marries mystique, the impact is unforgettable.
