Last year we saw an abundance of long-sleeved, formal wedding dresses up and down aisles all over the country, no doubt inspired by Meghan Markle’s long-sleeved wedding dress, but there’s been a turn in the tide this year, with more relaxed, alluring wedding dresses taking centre stage – one look at Billie Faiers’ plunging wedding dress can tell you that!
With this in mind, it comes as no surprise that Maggie Sottero’s Charlene wedding dress was voted Wedding Dress of The Year in the UK Wedding Awards, brought to you by You & Your Wedding and Hitched.
“The beautifully embellished bodice and flattering a-line silhouette of the Charlene dress made it a winner for our brides,” says Group Editor Michelle Royle. “It’s a truly romantic and wearable gown.”
From the beaded bodice, to the sheer side insets, this dress has an undeniably sexy vibe, and that’s before we mention the beaded spaghetti straps, the open scoop back and the princess seam slit in the tulle skirt.
The gown is finished with covered buttons and a sprinkling of Swarovski crystals to add a touch of inimitable bridal sparkle.
