Princess Claire‘s stunning Elie Saab wedding gown caused a stir this weekend and it has already been proclaimed as one of the best wedding dresses of the year.
But wearing a bespoke gown created by one of the best designers in the world just isn’t possible for us mere mortals, so I have picked out six beautiful, Princess-perfect dresses that will help you achieve Claire’s look.
Pronovias: Elie by Elie Saab 2014
If you really want Elie Saab to be the designer of your wedding dress then head to a Pronovias store. There you can search through the Elie by Elie Saab bridal collection for 2014. It is here that you can find two models that are very similar to Princess Claire’s gown.
The first one is the Cignus Model:
Like Claire’s, this long-sleeved, ivory chiffon gown is adorned with intricate floral motifs. The mermaid silhouette also features a dipped back with pretty bow detailing and sheer shoulder panels.

Second Pronovias option, the Lacerta model:
Made from tulle and Chantilly lace, this gown is decorated with organza flowers and thousands of crystal rhinestones. A bateau neckline and cinchined-in waist perfectly offsets the pleated princess skirt.
Rosa Clará also offer affordable dresses and similar to Claire’s, such as the Canarias model from the Rosa Clará collection.
With layers of pleated tulle and delicate lace, this drop-waist dress with sheer sleeves is an elegant choice.
From the Two Rosa Clará collection you have the Marabú model.
The dress is absolutely stunning and bears a strong resemblance to Princess Claire’s gown.
