    H&M’s new Conscious Exclusive Collection is almost here but, before then, the brand has some big news—you can expect wedding dresses sprinkled into the mix of sustainable dresses and separates.

    While the dresses fall into the affordable range, they’re definitely not your run-of-the-mill wedding gown options. Not only are they gorgeous and have us itching to say “I do,” they’re also inspired by art and haute couture from the past few centuries. In fact, the entire collection looked 300 years back at archives found at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, drawing inspiration from the works of Botticelli and Gustave Moreau.

    The line contains three wedding dresses, and three very different ones at that. One dress is a boho-romantic dream, with lace bell sleeves and a high neck for $499, while a more modern style is made of a structured, textured material for $299. The most expensive piece, priced at $649, is comprised of a draped, Roman-esque cut with art deco-inspired embellishments.

    While this isn’t technically their first foray into wedding wear (they released a white dress labeled “bridal” back in 2014), news of their new wedding dresses doesn’t come as much of a surprise. In just the past two weeks, both ASOS and ModCloth have launched their own bridal collections. However, while H&M’s designs may be a bit pricier than their competition, they certainly are the most unique.

    The H&M Conscious Exclusive Collection will be available in 180 stores worldwide, as well as online, starting April 7—which means I have approximately three weeks to find myself a fiancé.
