When you think of fashion houses like Ralph Lauren, bridal attire may not be your first thought. Many aren't even aware that Ralph Lauren wedding dresses exist - and there's a reason for that. 

Ralph Lauren is a fashion designer synonymous with rugby polos, Oxford shirts and polo apparel. Though they have branched out into homeware and offer more women's lines now than ever before, there is no such thing as a Ralph Lauren bridal line.

However, Ralph Lauren himself has, over the years, designed one of a kind celebrity wedding dresses for a handful of famous faces, and boy are they impressive! Because you can't buy a Ralph Lauren wedding dress off the rack or in a boutique, his bridal designs are arguably some of the most exclusive and rare there have ever been.

A handful of lucky celebrities have had the opportunity to wear custom made Ralph Lauren wedding dresses and, looking at the few designs there are, it seems there are a few signatures that the designer is becoming known for. 

The Best Ralph Lauren Wedding Dresses in the World

High necklines, hooded veils, exquisite lace and influence from Grace Kelly's royal wedding dress are all common themes within Ralph Lauren's wedding designs - but the true beauty of these masterpiece designs is that no one wedding dress is the same as the other.

Every design in our round up of the best Ralph Lauren wedding dresses has been designed and crafted alongside the bride, bringing each nearlywed's dream and vision to life. Are you ready for some seriously chic couture? 

1. Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka Chopra wore three wedding dresses when she married Nick Jonas in a string of pre-wedding celebrations, wedding ceremonies and post-wedding parties. She looked incredible in every single bridal ensemble, but it was her Ralph Lauren wedding dress that really stole the show. 

The one of a kind dress was made using 5,600 pearlised beads, more than 11,000 Swarovski crystals, almost 2.5million high-lustre sequins and hundreds of satin-covered buttons and spools of ivory thread. Materials aside, the craftsmanship required to make a Ralph Lauren wedding dress this superb was extensive. It took 15 skilled seamstresses more than 1,800 hours to finalise the design.

Emily in Paris actress Lily Collins was always going to wear an iconic wedding dress - she is one of the most fashionable celebrities out there - but we weren't expecting something this good! Lily worked directly with designers at Ralph Lauren to create this masterpiece of a wedding dress which compromised of a long sleeved fitted lace gown with Ralph Lauren's signature high neck. 

The real star of the show was the intricate lace hooded cape which Lily wore in lieu of a wedding veil. It's Little Red Riding Hood if Little Red Riding Hood was a famous actress marrying a film director in a super chic ceremony. 

Speaking about the designer wedding dress on Instagram, Lily said, "It's my ultimate dream combination of Western Americana and British Victorian. Carefully handcrafted over nearly 200 hours, every detail was perfect - from the Calais-Caudry lace to the Swarovski-beaded micro flowers and silk organza petals.

"It's the most beautiful, memorable gown I will ever wear and I couldn't have imagined it any other way…"

3. Naomi Biden

This picture of Naomi Biden in her custom Ralph Lauren wedding dress is *everything* - we love the block wedding heels in hand, the way the sunlight hits her pleated skirt, the intricacy of the lace bodice the sweet pearl wedding earrings - the list is genuinely endless! 

The Ralph Lauren wedding dress was crafted from Chantilly lace - only the best for the President's granddaughter - organza petals and an organza cathedral-length veil. Her look was completed with jewellery from Tiffany & Co - the entire ensemble was classic and timeless.

In all the excitement of the dress, we almost forgot to mention Naomi's landmark wedding venue! The wedding took place at the White House, where only 19 other weddings and receptions have been documented - talk about exclusive! A wedding hasn't taken place there since President Obama's Chief Photographer married there in 2013.

4. Jennifer Lopez

When Jennifer Lopez married Ben Affleck, she wore not one, not two, but three custom made Ralph Lauren wedding dresses. Go big or go home J-Lo!

Her first Ralph Lauren wedding dress had Ralph's signature high neck, but not as we've seen it before. The gown had high-neck ruffles, a fitted bodice and open back which led to one of the most voluminous ruffled skirts we've seen on a celebrity wedding dress.

It's giving us Vera Wang wedding dress vibes with the fishtail ruffles - and they weren't easy to make. It's reported that 500 meters of fabric and more than 1,000 handkerchiefs were used to create this one-of-a-kind wedding dress - and that was just the first gown. 

Her wedding celebrations continued, with Jennifer wearing a cute column wedding dress embellished with Swarovski crystals next. Her final wedding dress was another mermaid silhouette with a keyhole neckline, also adorned with Swarovski crystals. 

High necklines weren't the only Ralph Lauren signature that J-Lo rocked on her wedding day. Her final wedding dress was paired with a sheer wedding hood, similar to the iconic lace hood veil we saw from Lily Collins above. 

5. Lauren Bush

Considering she was marrying Ralph Lauren's son, it's no surprise that the gorgeous Lauren Bush wore a custom made Ralph Lauren wedding dress, alongside her husband who rocked an equally smart custom made Ralph Lauren suit. In an interview with Vogue, it was revealed that talks about the wedding dress design began over family dinners and festive celebrations - just a casual family chat then?

Her Ralph Lauren wedding dress was a vision, adorned with intricate lace appliques all over. It's reported that her gown took 100 designers more than 3,000 hours to make which doesn't surprise us, it's a true masterpiece. The elegant lace and high neckline pay homage to Victorian styling, but the sparkles and glistening veil gave the bride's look a modern feel.

And speaking of veils, Lauren's was equally as impressive as her dress. Her wedding veil, also made from antique tulle, was adorned with hand-embroidered Swarovski pearls and beads. Keeping it real as always, Lauren opted for flat wedding shoes and actually wore cowboy boots with her wedding dress.

6. Kate Bock

Model Kate Bock married NBA star Kevin Love in June of this year in a gorgeous library wedding venue - New York Public Library to be exact. When searching for a bridal gown to match her elegant, historic wedding venue, Kate opted for a breath-taking custom Ralph Lauren wedding dress.

Luckily for her, Ralph Lauren is an old friend of Kate's, so having him dream up her ideal wedding dress was merely a friendly favour. Speaking to Vogue about her vision, she said, "I was inspired by Grace Kelly's wedding dress, so we used that as a jumping off point for a modern day beaded lace gown that was totally my style."

Her wedding dress was incredible! Adorned with more than 2,000,000 hand-embroidered beads, no detail was spared in this masterpiece. The long sleeves paired with the open keyhole back gave a gorgeous contrast of styles and we love the signature high neck that we often see in custom Ralph Lauren designs.
