Best Wedding Gowns by Christa Vagnozzi

The Best You Can Get

  • Oscar de la Renta

    Christa says: If you’re going to go short on your wedding day, you need to make a big style statement. This Oscar de la Renta number does just that with a dramatic V-neckline punctuated with a rosette. This dress would be perfect for a destination wedding in an exotic city (think Capri or Paris).

    • Style: Marilia
    • White silk faille
    • V-neckline
    • Knee-length
  • Jenny Packham

    Christa says: Bling never looked so sophisticated. This Jenny Packham dress, with a 1920s-inspired silhouette, gets a modern-day makeover thanks to hundreds of Swarovski crystals.

    • Style: Charlize
    • Allover Swarovski crystals
    • Cap sleeves
    • Draped back
  • Carolina Herrera

    Christa says: My new favorite wedding gown fabric: taffeta. It’s so much fun to move in and can be molded into any shape or form. Mrs. Herrera used taffeta to create playful ruffle detailing on an otherwise simple strapless gown.

    • Style: Bonjour
    • Ivory silk faille
    • Strapless
    • Trumpet skirt
  • Vera Wang

    Christa says: Okay, I admit it — I have a thing for flowers that pop on a gown. I simply love the way this oversized, hand-cut corsage balances out the fit-and-flare silhouette of this Vera Wang dress. So simple, yet so chic.

    • Ivory taffeta
    • Strapless
    • Mermaid silhouette
  • Angel Sanchez

    Christa says: If you stuck to your bridal boot camp routine, get ready to show off your toned physique in this Angel Sanchez creation. The raised, squared-off neckline highlights the shoulders, while laminate floral appliqués and a ribbon at the waist provide a feminine touch.

    • Style: N4011
    • Silk gazar
    • Raised neckline
    • A-line silhouette

You will be happy with any of these

  • Adele Wechsler

    Christa says: Always one to get behind anything eco-friendly, I love Adele Wechsler’s Eco Couture Collection, which was not only green but stunning as well. This strapless dress was made from vegetable-dyed silk, while scrap materials were salvaged to create the train’s wraparound vines.

    • Style: Fern
    • Organic silk
    • Strapless
    • Mermaid silhouette
  • Anne Barge

    Christa says: Anne Barge knows how to update a traditional wedding gown. Take this classic look with a modest split bateau neckline and add pockets to create an instant trendsetter.

    • Style: Ana/506
    • Pearl silk
    • Split bateau neckline
    • Trumpet skirt
  • Amsale

    Christa says: Let’s face it: white doesn’t look good on everybody. That’s why I like this blush pink ball gown by Amsale. Bonus: The high-low skirt is perfect for showing off a new pair of Jimmy Choos.

    • Style: Aurora
    • Silk taffeta
    • Strapless
    • High-low ball gown skirt
  • Elizabeth Fillmore

    Christa says: This Elizabeth Fillmore dress evokes Old Hollywood glamour, while the metallic halter straps and crepe satin wrap give it a modern flair.

    • Style: Cora
    • Satin back crepe
    • Halter neckline
    • Sheath
  • Reverie by Melissa Sweet

    Christa says: The key to a memorable wedding day: Have fun! Melissa Sweet makes it totally easy with her new Reverie wedding gown line. Who wouldn’t have a blast sashaying down the aisle - and on the dance floor - in tiers of lace and net?

    • Style: Mykonos
    • Alternating lace and net
    • Strapless sweetheart neckline
    • Mermaid silhouette
