TDT's favourite movie wedding dressses

We at The Dress Tribe always love a little bit of bridal inspiration – from the old to the new, from the traditional to the boundary breakers. Whilst we spend endless hours of our lives discovering bridal brands, lusting over new designs and staring at old pictures of Audrey Hepburn on her wedding day, sometimes there’s nothing quite like pinning overt the dresses brought to life by the big screens designers.
