It's no secret that bridal designers take inspiration from the glamour of the red carpet, but it seems that this year the tables have turned! Watching the Golden Globes last weekend, I was floored by the amount of dresses I saw that began as bridal gowns and were custom-made in a color more appropriate for evening. Check out three ladies I spotted in custom bridal gowns.

While Olivia Wilde wore the original runway version of this now bridal look on the carpet in 2003, Julie Bowen, from this year's Best Comedy Series, "Modern Family," opted for an even more feminine version of this classic Reem Acra bridal style in a blush tulle. Looking for Julie's dress in ivory for your wedding day? You can find it, jeweled sleeves and all, at Gabriella New York Bridal Salon and the Reem Acra Bridal Boutique in New York City.

Another "Modern Family" starlet, Sofia Vergara, walked the carpet in a seductive, body-hugging Vera Wang gown custom-made in this rich shade of teal. Seen this look before? It's one of Vera's fall 2012 bridal looks that was shown in black. But come fall 2012, this dress will be hanging in Vera Wang's Bridal Salon on Madison Avenue in the perfect shade of wedding white.

Dame Helen Mirren turned to the runway for her gown. The first look from Badgley Mischka's fall 2012 bridal collection seems to have been recreated for the stylish Dame in gorgeous navy with age-appropriate sleeves. Opt for it in its original form for your walk down the aisle.
