Dresses That Inspire

Martha Stewart Weddings, Fall 2001

Every bride is a work of art on her wedding day. This atelier of gowns celebrates the bride as muse.

Crystal beads and feathers adorn the strapless bodice of this shimmery confection in cafe-au-lait taffeta. White opera-length gloves cover the bride's arms, in which she cradles a spectacular bouquet of roses, lilacs, and peonies.

Below, romance reigns with this demure Renaissance-inspired silk satin organza dress. A pair of satin ribbon sashes encircle a bodice of vertical pin tucks, its dropped waist giving way to a full, gathered skirt. The bride's bouquet is bicolor hydrangeas.
