Carolina Herrera Wedding Dresses

See the hottest new wedding dresses from designer Carolina Herrera, just in from New York Bridal Week: April 2011

A modern romance…


“The petticoat of every Carolina Herrera gown is embroidered with the bride’s initials in blue; sweet tradition-ticking hidden detail!” Tweeted our editor, Miranda Eason, from the front row at Carolina Herrera during this season’s New York Bridal Week.


We’re in total agreement! If you’re a stylish, romantic, lace-loving, detail-craving bride-to-be, you’ll love it too. Go starry-eyed for Herrera’s latest collection, straight from the catwalk…

Bow-ed over


Lashings of silk work so well here, because this three-quarter-sleeved dress is so simple. The only embellishment needed is the pretty bow tied at the waist. Keep things simple with a pastel-pink posy and wear hair pulled back into a prim ballerina bun.

Wild at heart


Create your own wildflower fantasy with a trailing bouquet of daisies; worn so well here with this classic column wedding dress.

Tudor Rose


Ever seen Shakespeare in Love? We reckon this heavily embroidered wedding dress has a hint of the Tudor romance about it. Check out the rich white tapestry on the dress itself and the tantalisingly virtuous neckline. Next we’ll be reciting Shakespeare instead of our wedding vows…

A tale of two dresses


As you walk the aisle in this minimal yet elegant little number, you might be mistaken for taking the safe route to matrimony. That is, until you hear the gasps of delight from your seated guests…

Stripes we like


…a dramatic yet modern burst of spring-fresh greens, lilacs, yellows and greys, on a train topped off by a glittering garden butterfly. Now, who said you weren’t daring?

The romantic movement


We’ve come over all poetic for this sonnet-inspiring, romantic wedding dress. With its bustier design and sweeping lace veil, we could definitely compare it to a summer’s day.

Sheer beauty


Brides in search of a dress that covers yet reveals should play the coquette in this sheer, fitting gown. If you’re worried about those upper arm areas, the ultra-pretty sheer detailing across the décolletage and shoulders will make them your strongest asset.

Flower bomb


Become a beautiful floral bombshell by slipping into this stunning flower-themed wedding dress. Not only does it feature a lovely stitched arrangement of beautiful blooms at the front, but we’ve also spied an oh-so-stylish, on-trend asymmetric bow hidden in there too!

Dancing in the moonlight


Why go for a white dress when a subtle shade of lilac looks just as stunning? We love the dramatic neckline on this icy pale number, flecked by silvery sparkles – dazzling for your first moonlit dance.

Georgian glory


The Regency pretensions of this classic column wedding dress put us in mind of Elizabeth Bennett of Pride and Prejudice fame. And we all know the famous Mr. D she ended up marrying…

Poppy appeal


This fit-for-a-princess wedding dress is strewn with pretty poppy motifs. From the waist corsage to the matching bouquet, and then that monochrome embroidery that seems to cascade from the bodice; the life of a botanist never looked so appealing!

Patience is a virtue


If only we had the patience (and time!) to master the art of origami… but heck, we’re leaving it to the professionals! Lucky for us then, the folded neckline of this virtuous empire-line wedding dress is fantastic folded inspiration itself. If anyone asks, we did it ourselves!

All things bright


Like a shiny new silver coin, this icy bright strapless wedding dress will ensure you look bright and gleaming from day to night. Pair it with a natural bouquet to balance out that bright white gleam.

Starry, starry night


We’re dying to see this crystal encrusted wedding dress beneath a full star-flecked night. Perfect for an afternoon-to-evening wedding, we’d team it with a glamorous stole to keep warm when enjoying cocktails with your guests beneath a blanket of stars.

Daisy chain charm


Remember how fond you were of making daisy chains as a child? Keep things fun and frivolous at your wedding with an easy posy of daisies and an unusual flower-rich fabric – just like this romantic wedding dress.
