One of my favorite things to do is watch red carpets to see all the celebrity fashion. The biggest night in fashion is arguably the Met Gala, where Hollywood’s brightest walk up the museum stairs striking poses as they go. Seeing how people play off of the theme (or don’t) is so much fun! Everyone looks stunning, it is high fashion at its most opulent. When I was watching I couldn’t help but think how the Met Gala styles could be applied to wedding fashion. There are some amazing trends that could cross over easily. Here are a few of my favorites:

Headpieces were all over the carpet, it seemed like everyone had a statement piece on. A cathedral length veil, headband or crown would be a great way to use this trend. You don’t have to take it to the extreme though, even some flowers in your hair works with the style.

Gold, gold, gold! The religious theme of the exhibit brought out many celebrities in gold embellishments. Gold can be applied to your décor or your dress, it adds so much depth and elegance to your wedding.   

Wearing pants instead of a gown was also seen on the carpet. Surprise your guests with a white jumpsuit or pantsuit, a trendy look that will wow.

Extreme trains made for beautiful poses on the museum staircase. Go long for your ceremony to make heads turn and get some fantastic photos. A major train makes your walk down the aisle a moment to remember.

Florals were the dominant pattern on the staircase, to incorporate this trend go with a patterned gown or linens for the tables. The pattern on the Met Gala was bold and jewel-toned, but there are so many different types of florals to choose from.

Embellished capes were worn by a couple of celebrities. They can be short or long, covered in sparkle or simple. A cape is a great way to include a trend, but still keep your bridal look classic.

And one for the guys: Don’t be afraid to add some embroidery or bling to your look. A well-placed pin or a jacquard printed blazer is luxe and shows some personality in a menswear look.
