Trudy Lee Wedding Dresses 2011
Whether Cinderella’s still secretly your favourite film (we say Shawshank, too), you daydream about hitting the red carpet or you’ve got your heart set on the ultimate, skyscraper city wedding, Trudy Lee have a wedding dress that will leave you looking stunning way past midnight…
A Dream is a Wish Your Card Makes
We admit it: when the real world gets us down, we still turn to chocolate and Disney. And now we’ve grown up (sort of) into strong, independent women, we can own our dream-come-true – starting with this fairytale strapless, ballgown wedding dress. We’ll add lilac shoes to match that subtle sash, a delicate flowery necklace to tie in with the detail and a sparkly tiara (you’re never too old) to all-out princessify.

We’d Like to Thank Our Groom
Roll out the red carpet: that halter neck, wrap bodice and wintry snowflake-sparkle say serious Oscar-season glamour. Earring bling (think sexy diamond drops or slinky twists of silver) gives the look that finished A-list polish; just a slick of scarlet lippy and you’re a Forties Hollywood sweetheart.

We want floor-to-ceiling windows at a sky-high wedding venue in the heart of the big-city action. And that’s why we heart the total urban-scene sophistication of this figure-loving wedding dress. We’re tempted to up the ante and go full-on fashion-forward: think a so-now top-of-the-head bun with oversized (and strap-matching!) bow. Or we can rock understated class with a minimalist-sleek chignon, plus bracelet and earrings in forever-chic pearls.

Just A Girl
Between our Gwen Stefani Harajuku Lovers perfume and our undying obsession with Uniqlo (we’re sure our fluffy-hooded jacket is what drew our groom to us in the first place), our head is well and truly in the Japanese style zone. Step up this exotic-goes-trad wedding dress with origami neckline and we’ve got our big-day Eastern-fashion fix. Just add a spritz of Ometasando Girl and some red and gold earrings (and try to resist the metallic pink parka, just this once).

All the Fun of the Fête
We’re feeling fun and flirty – and our hubby’s flirting right back – in this offbeat Fifties knee-length wedding dress. We’ll flash our model pins at our chilled-out outdoor altar – with a flower in our hair and cutesie, footloose ballet pumps – then get stuck in at our summer fête reception; skittles, cricket and do we spy a bouncy castle? No way a train and platform heels are stopping us!

Can’t Be Tamed
Who says the bride doesn’t get to make a speech? Break all the rules – white wedding dress included – and toast your man, mum and maids in this champagne bridal gown. Swap big-day-classic pearls for a leaf-shaped gold pendant or earrings if you’re tying the knot in autumn, or opt for quirky little birds in spring, fuzzy-but-fierce bees in summer or wise, big-eyed owls in snowball season.

Watch My (Tu)lips
Prep the throne: we just became the queens of co-ordination. Wedding dress, bouquets and bridesmaids, anyone? That super-girlie tulip neckline got us thinking about pew ends, centrepieces and down-the-aisle posies of the pretty bloom, and we figured that tum-tucking wrap-round bodice style would flatter our best girls, too. We reckon we’re a pearl-and-crystal headpiece away from total wedding harmony.

Sex and the Seashore
Give us sun, sea, sand and top-to-toe cool at our far-flung beach reception; all we need is this floaty wedding dress and an SATC shore-side cocktail. Make like Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha and pile on the on-trend accents – a chunky eclectic bracelet or cuff and big gold, chandelier earrings – and sneak luxe embellished pumps underneath, for your – and his – eyes only…
