Wedding season is officially upon us. So far I don’t have a single wedding invitation this summer and I’m kind of disappointed. I thoroughly enjoy weddings, and is it just me or have they gotten way better over the past few years. It seems every couple is trying to put there own unique spin on their special day, from DIY touches to elaborate destination weddings.

Over the next few weeks we here at the Design Tree will be bringing you a few wedding themed posts, sharing with you some truly extraordinary wedding decorating, design and diy ideas. To kick things off here’s a look at a few simply gorgeous wedding fashions.

This photograph of Delhi bride Megha is beautiful, as is her gold and pink sari. Indian wedding traditions are so amazing. I love all the colour, the jewellery, the henna and of course the exquisite clothes.

Dolce and Gabbana made this pop art inspired black and white wedding gown. I’m not sure if many brides want to compete with the iconic Marilyn Monroe on their wedding day, but this definitely is a show-stopper dress, that’s for sure.

If you are a fan of traditional Japanese fashion I recommend having a peek at  Uno Kanda’s Scena D’uno collection, which includes this unbelievable pink, plum and gold kimono seen above, it’s pure opulence. To see more Japanese wedding fashions by Uno Kanda here’s a video from her 2010 runway show.

Here’s another non-white dress made out of peacock feathers. Made out of 2009 peacock tail feather’s and jade, this dress took over two months to construct and costs 1.5 million dollars. That’s a lot of feathers, and one incredibly unique dress.

In case you didn’t hear, two crazy kids in England got married last Friday, apparently it was a pretty big deal. Unless you’ve been in hiding for the past week chances are you’ve seen Kate Middleton’s dress about a million times already, but a stunner like this deserves another look. Sarah Burton, designing for the Alexander McQueen fashion house, really rose to the royal occasion. That dress is absolutely fit for a princess.

Stay tuned for more wedding awesomeness, next time we’ll take a look at some DIY decorating ideas.
