In 2019 we traveled across the world documenting fairytales and romances from the old-world villas of Tuscany to the rolling hills of Ireland to the grand boulevards of Paris and everywhere in between. I feel so incredibly fortunate to have been able to make lifelong friendships with so many amazing couples and vendors and am heading into 2020 overflowing with inspiration. To celebrate our adventures, I have pulled together my list of the best wedding dresses of 2019. Scroll down for all of the beauty!

For this beautiful day at Château de Villette (coming soon to Once Wed), the Heather gown by Chana Marelus perfectly reflected the symmetry iconic to traditional French gardens, as see in the gardens of Château de Villette and Versailles.
Additionally, our bride donned a second gown by Chana Marelus. The Daniella gown was a nod to the venue’s architectural detail, with floral appliqués trailing the sleeves – the perfect look for this regal Chateau de Villette wedding.
Coming soon to Style Me Pretty, this bride wore a gorgeous Monique Lhullier gown – perfect for the luxe setting of Château du Grand-Luce. While regal and elegant, it also made a refined feminine statement with the low back and bow shoulder details. Definitely one of my favorites from the best wedding dresses of 2019 (and ever!)
For Clarissa’s autumn wedding in Tuscany, she chose an elegant brocade Monique Lhullier gown. This classic look was perfect for the palatial Villa Cetinale and was perfectly balanced by Clarissa’s softly-tousled locks.
Katherine chose a sophisticated gown for her intimate Parisian wedding, as seen on Trendy Bride. A classic, refined silhouette was made modern with jeweled cap-sleeves and a truly show-stopping train, perfect for photos by the Eiffel Tower.
For Kelly’s destination wedding in Ireland, featured on Wedding Sparrow, she chose a simple and sophisticated gown by Jenny Yoo that perfectly reflected her classic style. Paired with Loeffler Randall heels, a gorgeous updo, and a flowing, ethereal veil, she was truly one of the most timeless and elegant brides I had ever seen.
For Kaleigh & Jame’s European-inspired soiree, Kaleigh donned a gorgeous lace gown from Marie Gabrielle Couture that perfectly reflected her elegant, feminine style.
As seen in Martha Stewart Weddings, Nicole wore a stunning silk Elizabeth Fillmore gown for her dream two-day Santorini wedding. It was one of the first gowns she tried on and perfectly encapsulated the simple, but sophisticated vibe of her nuptials.
For Laura & Craig’s gorgeous Paris pre-wedding session, as seen on Style Me Pretty, Laura opted for a blush pink gown that looked absolutely ethereal in the glowing morning light. Two days later, her silk gown was equally stunning for her Château Bouffemont wedding.
