Legendary designer Oscar de la Renta passed away yesterday at the age of 82. He and his timeless designs were known, respected, and loved by many people around the world—including all of us here at WedLuxe.

Over the years, we have been incredibly fortunate to have had countless numbers of his iconic gowns grace the pages of our magazine. We have loved each and every one of them. Each was effortlessly beautiful, always graceful, and timelessly chic. We have collected a few of our favourites from recent years, including two incredible gowns from our own pages (above), Amal Alamuddin's ivory beaded-tulle wedding gown, and Sarah Jessica Parker's show stopping 2014 Met Gala gown.

Oscar once said, "The great thing about fashion is that it always looks forward."

Yes, Mr. de la Renta that's true, but we'll forever look back and celebrate you.

We adore the all-white floral displays and sparkly details at Menny and Chris’ oceanside wedding.

Menny said “I Do” in a stunning Romona Keveza mermaid-style gown purchased from Vancouver’s Blush Bridal and Special Occasions. She paired her gown with dazzling Elsa Corsi designed headband that matched her diamond Lugaro engagement ring.

The tablescapes included golden accents and lucite candelabras topped with white roses, hydrangeas, and orchids from Poppies Floral Art. Lori Miles of Sweet Pea Photography was on-hand to capture all of the wedding eye candy.

Vera Wang describes her latest collection as “sexy, sensuous, young, cool, and beaded.” The designer’s Fall 2015 collection is full of inspiration if you love tulle and volume, and aren’t afraid to show a little skin. Chantilly lace, silk organza embroidery, and architectural draping are found throughout the lookbook featured below. We’re drawn to the rose V-neck empire gowns with metallic appliqués and the beautifully beaded sheaths, but which would you wear?

New York’s Bridal Market showed many different trends and beaded detailing is one that we’re loving! This styled shoot from Modern Romance Productions gets ahead of the Fall 2015 trend with embellished, flowing gowns from Bisou Bridal and jewelled headpieces.

The pinks in the Le Gateau Bakeshop desserts and the greens of the Design by Dainty stationery offer feminine touches that are both romantic and classic. Vancouver’s vistas are on full display from the top of the Shangri-La Hotel adding a contemporary feel to the shoot.
