Unless you’ve been on a social media break (go you) over the past week, you’ve probably seen photos from Paris Hilton’s gorgeous November 11th wedding to her new hubby, Carter Reum.

The wedding was an outlandish, Hilton-scale three-day event that ended in a giant carnival party.

Despite Paris usually being known for her tiny mini skirts, outlandish disco outfits, and an array of sunglasses, her wedding dress was a very sophisticated affair. 

It’s a high-necked, long-sleeve gown with a floral design flowing into a tulle ballgown skirt. 


We’re kind of obsessed! And it seems we're not the only ones, with Google data revealing searches for ‘high neck wedding dress’ exploded by 1200% in the days after photos of Paris' look were shared online.

It’s a similar classic style to Paris’ mother and sisters own wedding dresses and pays homage to Grace Kelly and Lady Kitty Spencer’s gowns.

Although an Oscar de la Renta dress may be, uh, slightly out of our dress budget, we’ve tracked down a gorgeous selection of affordable alternatives.

ASOS EDITION Elizabeth beaded bodice wedding dress, $320

This beauty of a dress is very similar to Paris’, although the top half showcases beaded embellishments rather than florals. 

The high-neck and long sleeves are of the utmost modest glamour, and the flowy chiffon skirt will make you feel like a princess.

ASOS EDITION Ayla embroidered bodice maxi wedding dress, $190

Another dress that works as a gorgeous homage to the Hilton gown - featuring floral features overlaid on chiffon and a lightly pleated full-length skirt. 

Google searches for ‘flower wedding dress’ jumped 1300% after the wedding, while searches for ‘long sleeve wedding dress’ also saw a hike of 127%.

This design will satisfy both those criteria and elevate you to feel like the most elegant, regal bride there is.

Zhivago Angelus Gown, $1,264.09

This dress, for the top half, is almost identical to Paris' own. 

The high neck and floral appliques are stunning and set with silver metallic thread, so you'll literally be shining like a star. 

The dress then takes a daring twist at the skirt, with an asymmetrical lining that shows off your legs below the floral lace.

It features an ivory tulle and silk skirt, with embroidered ‘Kopaneli’ (handmade lace designs) and a lattice trim on the neck and chest.

Medeleine Dress Bronx and Banco AU$ 684.10

Adore the style, but want to switch it up a bit?

The skirt length hits just above the knee, perfect for a daring bride who wants to combine modern and classic styles.
