Paris-Inspired Philadelphia Wedding Fashion for Your Big Day

If you’re anything like us, you were a bit enamored with the styles of Emily in Paris. They’re over the top, unexpected and, quite frankly, downright fun. So we decided to have some of our own fun with the latest Philadelphia Wedding fashion feature, which you can find in our summer/fall 2022 issue. We asked ourselves: What would Emily wear to her wedding? (You know, if she ever settles on a someone.) We think it would be something bold, blue, and entirely non-traditional — and maybe that idea is right for you, too. So, let these colorful gowns, chic dresses and dreamy ensembles — photographed amid Old City’s most Parisian spots — be the inspiration for your fashion-forward Philly Big Day.
