Ralph Lauren had dressed only three brides with bespoke wedding dresses – all for his family members’ daughter, daughter-in-law and niece until Priyanka Chopra’s 2018 wedding.
The designer forked out for the actress to craft one of the most stunning wedding trousseaus in history. Now, why did Ralph Lauren break his cardinal rule for crafting wedding dresses just for family is a question. The quintessential label was not a usual choice for bridal wear but serendipitous and iconic for the star. In the year 2017, Priyanka Chopra and now husband Nick Jonas walked the Met Gala as Ralph Lauren guests together.
At the time, the designer or the world had no idea what’s brewing between the iconic couple. Nonetheless, they sent paparazzi on the red carpet in a tizzy and set the red carpet on fire.

When choosing a dress, make sure it fits your biggest area. For some, that may be the hips and for others the bust or the waist. The rest can be taken in. Otherwise, if a dress needs to be expanded, there may not be enough fabric to let out. That could mean ordering more material, and some designers don’t sell their fabric. Many brides also arrive with a dress that is three or four sizes too large, which creates extra work, which ups the bill.

Couples are buying them for themselves as well as getting them as wedding gifts.
“Masks at first were considered a purely medical device, but as they have evolved into our new normal we received an overwhelming amount of messages requesting if we could create them,” said Hermione de Paula, a London-based bridal designer. “We found it really important to help our clients find a solution to still feel beautiful on their most important day.”
