As the couturiers revealed their spring/summer 2018 collections, we take a look at the top wedding gowns seen on the catwalks – a highlight of Paris’s haute couture fashion week. Future brides will find much to inspire them in the season’s most opulent and extravagant wedding dresses. Meticulously handcrafted, these couture wedding dresses are the ultimate examples of breathtaking design and execution. Designers such as Ralph & Russo and Ziad Nakad proved that bigger is better with showstopping gowns that swept down the catwalks complete with intricate veils and painstaking embroidery. Those looking for a sleeker, more modern silhouette should take inspiration from Stéphane Rolland and Givenchy who nipped in the models’ waists with leather belts. Schiaparelli, meanwhile, presented ethereal looks with barely there lace dresses.
