Shimmer down the aisle in this gorgeous satin, sheen gown with vintage lace details and a gathered bodice – totally charming.
We love a dress with attitude – a sexy one shoulder with a netted sash flicked over the neckline is perfect for your red carpet moment. The sweeping skirt is sassy and playful – cute!
Come Softly To Me
Details, details, details! Intricate embroidery and an illusion neckline give this gown extra sparkle. We love the ribbon sash around the waist for a feminine touch.
Good Rockin’ Tonight
An up-do is essential in the hair department if you want to flaunt the amazing crisscross neckline on this gorgeous A-line design. Netted tulle gives it a whimsical feel – style with a wild, trailing bouquet for maximum effect.
Thick netted sleeves and feather details give this dress a real sense of flapper fancy. A real classic.
Twist and Shout
Sassy and strapless, this dress is a go-to design for sophisticated glamour – we love the way the full skirt gathers to one side and the silver embroidered embellishments along the bodice. The right necklace (we’re thinking dainty and sparkling!), could really set this off.
I Put A Spell On You
Shapely and figure-hugging, this design flaunts curves in all the right places. Thick halter-neck sleeves emphasise the neckline and a floaty column skirt creates a soft and romantic feel. Add a bright sash around the waist for a pop of colour, or team with a glitzy headpiece for real wow-factor.
Sleek is the word with this satin sheen design – we love the gathered bodice and capped sleeves. Rock the old-school glamour look with a birdcage veil and a roller-teased hair do.
Oh-la-la mademoiselle! Nothing says coquette quite like a V-shaped sheer panel on a boat neckline. Wear hair up with a crystal bobby pin to give this dress the attention it deserves.
Let The Good Times Roll
Team this love-lace gown with a crystal handbag and dazzling jewellery for a showgirl feel. Let the party begin!
You give me fever…
Dita Von Teese eat your heart out! Intricate lace and a crystal side headpiece make for super cool vintage Fifties styling. Flaunt a porcelain, flawless skin tone and a slick of red lippy to complete the look.
Does this dress remind you of a certain duchess bride? Kate sparked a new trend this season when she wore lace sleeves and a gorgeous veil. A full skirt with a long train means this dress gets our royal seal of approval.
I’m In Love Again
Love lace? Love this. Intricately designed, this dress is detail-fabulous. A subtle lace flyaway veil, which gathers at the crown of the head and drapes down the back is the perfect choice for head candy.
Baby Let’s Play House
After a vintage look without the lace? It’s all in the accessories. Style yourself old-time with a beaded, crystal headpiece – this looks great with a classic ball gown design.
The princess bride
If you’re a bride-to-be come fairytale princess, you might just fall in love with this dress. A full skirt with a satin sheen finish gives it a truly regal glow.
Sea Of Love
Netted overlay, an illusion neckline and crystal embellishments give this gown head-turning potential. Simple and charming.
A real gem
If jewellery designers turned their hands to wedding dress design, we imagine this would be the result. A frenzy of crystal detailing along the bodice, sleeves and skirt combine to make this a dazzling delight.
You’re So Fine
Structured and sensational, this clean-cut design is perfect for a city-chic do. The multi-layered skirt adds striking texture and shape.
My fair lady
Lace meets satin sheen in this elegant corseted design. An illusion lace neckline and an elegant trailing skirt lend themselves perfectly to a graceful city wedding.
Whole lotta love
Embrace your inner temptress and steal the show in this short, prom-style dress. A heart-shaped neckline with a satin sheen bodice and ruffles a plenty make it super girly too.
Little Girl Of Mine
The biggest fashion wave set to cause a bridal riot this season is the cover-up, and this high illusion neckline with lace overlay fits the bill perfectly. Team with a mantilla veil for vintage polish.
Dizzy Miss Lizzy
This dress screams I-just-threw-this-on-and-I-look-amazing! The soft sleeves and silk sash tied around the waist make for effortless chic styling, so you’ll simply float down the aisle with ease.
With the dress sorted…
…now it’s time to style the groom – because a crumpled shirt and scuffed shoes just won’t do. For more big-day fashion tips, check out our behind-the-scenes video of the Divine Decadence bridal fashion shoot, as seen in our Sept/Oct issue (on sale Friday 26th). Totally fabulous!
