Audrey Hepburn Wedding Dress Style for Classic Brides

Share this post:

If you dream of being the most classic of brides, you will love the Audrey Hepburn wedding dress style in this post, and you just may find *the one* here.

I have been a longtime Audrey Hepburn super fan. I have been watching her movies and reading the best books about Audrey Hepburn for decades!

When it came time for my own wedding, I KNEW I wanted to wear an Audrey Hepburn style wedding dress. To me, this meant that it should definitely have the bateau / boat neck neckline she so often wore, but beyond that I was open. I also wanted it to not have a lot of embellishments but a bit was ok, especially if it was more about the structure of the dress and not tons of rhinestones or sequins. Lastly, I didn't want to look like I was wearing an Audrey Hepburn costume -- I wanted it to be unique!

Luckily, I found my dream dress online the first night I looked at wedding dresses! I loved how it mixed the classic Audrey neckline with more modern construction and romantic lace. Here it is:

As I continued to look for similar alternatives, I soon learned this type of Audrey Hepburn wedding dress style can be hard to come by. That's why I'm here to help you find your dream dress too!

About My Wedding Dress: My Audrey Hepburn wedding dress style that is pictured above is BHLDN's Whispers & Echoes brand in the "Tuscany" style. I purchased it in 2018. If you want this exact dress, it's still floating around the internet if you Google it. You can also see what BHLDN is currently offering and/or read my full BHLDN review.

Now, let's get to more Audrey Hepburn wedding dress style you can learn about and shop for yourself. Below, I discuss the Audrey Hepburn wedding dress in Funny Face, as well as its designer, and then I show you where you can get a nearly identical tea length wedding dress. Lastly, I provide a more wide variety of shoppable options for an Audrey Hepburn-inspired wedding dress.

Audrey Hepburn Wedding Dress in Funny Face

The Audrey Hepburn wedding dress in Funny Face is probably the most iconic of her wedding looks, be it in real life or on film!

It's the exact style I modeled my wedding look after. I even carried a bouquet of only lily of the valley flowers just like her!

This dress has the bateau / boatneck neckline which Audrey so often wore, and it remains beautiful to this day, as well as classy and modest! To me, this is the staple detail an Audrey Hepburn wedding dress style should have.

I talk about this detail even more in my Audrey Hepburn Capsule Wardrobe.


Audrey Hepburn Wedding Dress Designer

The designer of the Audrey Hepburn wedding dress in Funny Face was none other than Hubert de Givenchy. Audrey and Givenchy had a unique, decades-long friendship that transcended fashion, and he is responsible for most of her most famous looks, including *that* Breakfast at Tiffany's little black dress.

If you love to swoon at timeless fashion like me, you will love the book Audrey and Givenchy. It's a great coffee table book for the most classic of fashionistas. Since this is primarily a book blog, I had to sneak this one in here. I love it!


Audrey Hepburn Tea Length Wedding Dress

The Audrey Hepburn wedding dress from Funny Face is tea-length, meaning it falls below the knee and above the ankle. This is a very unique look, which is not for every bride. But, if it's right for YOU, I did find some good options for you. First, you can have one custom-made on Etsy just like Audrey's. And I provide additional shorter options below.


Audrey Hepburn Inspired Wedding Dress

Below are even more options for an Audrey Hepburn-inspired wedding dress. As I mentioned earlier, to me the main feature is that it should have that bateau / boat neck neckline. But, beyond that, I really tried to give you some options, so your wedding dress matches your unique personality as well.

This style dress is surprisingly hard to find right now! The best options I found came from very unexpected sources -- Amazon and Etsy!

These are not the most high-end -- but neither was mine (I paid $800 at BHLDN for the above-pictured wedding dress I wore)! To me, it was all about the shape of the dress and how that shape would look on pictures for years (and decades) to come. And the neckline is what does that.
