Wedding dress designers spend years learning about fine art, history, the science of color and texture to create a jaw-dropping wedding gown. They particularly source new and exciting materials and predict (and often define) next year’s trends. We appreciate this and recognize the immense talent that goes into every stitch. Like every other genre, some artists follow suit while others rise to the top.

Thus, we’ve assembled a short list of our favorites. None are more talented than others, but some – just like Van Gogh is the master of Impressionism while Picasso is the master of Cubism. Overall, they all have areas where they shine! Pay close attention and you just may find the designer who’ll craft the gown of your dreams.

How do I pick the right wedding dress?
Keep an open mind! We hear so regularly that our brides commonly buy gowns that are different to what they originally thought they would choose. I mean, we only really try on wedding dresses when we're getting married so for lots of brides, this is their first experience in trying on bridal gowns. Oftentimes, it's hard to know what will suit until we actually start the wedding dress trying-on process, so definitely keep an open mind!

Bridal Dresses by Lihi Hod

One of the largest obstacles for famous wedding dress designers to overcome is the delicate balance between traditional and trendy.
