This past weekend, on Saturday, June 30th, The Big Bang Theory’s Kaley Cuoco tied the knot with her partner Karl Cook. We expected Cuoco, who’s known for her spunky style, to break from tradition when it came to her wedding fashion, but both of her bridal looks totally took us by surprise. She first donned a Reem Acra floor-length cape during her ceremony, then changed into a plunging Tadashi Shoji jumpsuit for her reception. We’re inspired to break the mold, and if you are too, here’s how you can grab her look.
Cuoco’s Reem Acra creation was actually custom-made for the star’s big day. The matching gown and cape feature stunning floral appliques on what appears to be tulle or perhaps sheer chiffon. And how cute is that little satin bow tied at Cuoco’s neck? She looks like a princess from a fantasy flick and we are here for it!
Although Cuoco’s gown and cape combo is a custom creation, Acra has sent several cape designs down the runway that are available for purchase via Reem Acra boutiques and retailers. For example, Acra’s “Passion” design from her Fall 2018 collection is a combination of a halter-neck gown and a flowing cape with structured lace on the shoulder.
And Acra’s “My Dearest” look from her Prophet Collection pairs a strapless gown with a sheer cape that ties at the neck, like Cuoco’s.
Reem Acra designs start at $4,000 at Kleinfeld in New York City. And in Dimitra’s Bridal Couture showroom, a Chicago-based Reem Acra retailer, the designer’s collection ranges between $5,000 and $15,000. You can find a Reem Acra boutique or retailer via the designer’s website.
But, if you’ve settled on a dress and are now on the hunt for an accessory with pizzazz, here are a few of our fave bridal capes that will add some festive flair to your bridal look:
The arm slits on this sheer cape provide easy bouquet access and the floral details are a dainty, subdued version of Cuoco’s appliques.
This lace option looks similar to Cuoco’s but is available at a fraction of the price. Plus, this chantilly lace cape is handmade and can be customized, according to the Etsy seller.
No need to add jewelry to your bridal look when your cape has metallic accents like this piece from David’s Bridal. This look seems like it was pulled from the Heavenly Bodies Met Gala exhibit.
But Cuoco wasn’t done wowing guests with her fashion just yet. She then arrived to her reception in a Tadashi Shoji long-sleeved lace jumpsuit. The plunging neckline matched with those flared pant legs is just about as flattering as a jumpsuit can get, in our opinion.
Tadashi Shoji is not retailing Cuoco’s design, which makes us think this was also a custom creation. But, the designer does have similar looks available for purchase. Their Zeina Jumpsuit offers lace, sleeves, and a v-neck for $498.
Bridal jumpsuits are becoming more popular, which means several other retailers are branching out into the world of onesies. We found a few other wedding jumpsuits that took our breath away.
The Mara has that deep plunge and those wide legs that makes any bride look tall, slim, and ready to take over the world.
The long-sleeved lace detailing is certainly a nod to Cuoco’s look. But this ASOS creation has a bit more coverage and, honestly, you really can’t beat the price.
Whether you’re into capes and jumpsuits or not, you can also take inspiration from Cuoco’s decision to have a look custom made for her. Online bridal gown customization company, Anomalie, allows you to team up with professional stylists and seamstresses to create a wedding look that’s completely unique to you, all while staying at an affordable price point. It’s possible live that celeb lifestyle even if you’re not on that celeb budget.
Cuoco took us by surprise and we’re so glad she did. If you choose to throw on a cape or don a jumpsuit on your wedding day, you’ll certainly turn heads in the best way.
