Did you catch any of the Oscars on Sunday night? Although I haven't seen many of the movies, I love the red carpet and all the lovely dresses. There are always many stunners that would translate wonderfully to a Portland wedding, many with familiar and favorite wedding couturiers such as Reem Acra, Vera Wang, and Elie Saab. Here are a few of my favorites:

Inspiration was readily found for mothers-of-the-bride and groom as well: my personal favorite was a crimson lace design from Reem Acra on Bette Midler – truly divine! Take a look at the rest of our picks below:
