Take First Prize for Best-Dressed 

Half the fun and excitement of a wedding is that the bride, groom, and bridal party get to dress up. Whether you’re thinking romantic and nostalgic, or chic and elegant, you’ll have a lot of fun exploring wedding dresses to suit your theme.

Vintage-inspired wedding dresses, made from gorgeous lace or satin, are best suited to a chic, sophisticated theme, like the 1920s. These styles of wedding dresses are generally embellished with pearls or crystals, and should sweep the floor as you make your way down the aisle. What we love about vintage-inspired wedding dresses is that they easily lend themselves to “something new”, so be a bit adventurous and original, even if your theme is nostalgic.

Fairy tales can come true for princess brides who want to feel like Cinderella on their wedding day. If you’re leaning towards wedding dresses which take you back to childhood dreams of Prince Charming, a ball gown silhouette is a perfect start. Be the belle of your ball in one of these wedding dresses, available in various designs, and materials such as gorgeous lace, tulle, and organza. What we love about the princess look is that ball gown wedding dresses are varied. They can be floor or knee-length, and can be strapless, V-neck or sweetheart, with many other unique variations. And, let’s not forget the gorgeous sparkly detail these wedding dresses love showing off. Fit for a princess, indeed.

As beach weddings have become more popular, designers of wedding dresses have pulled out all the stops to wow brides who want to feel sand between their toes. If you’re heading for the beach on your Big Day, think about comfort first. You should be exploring wedding dresses that are lightweight and hassle-free. We love chiffon for a beach wedding dress – it’s airy, light, and flattering. Beach brides have a lot of scope to personalise their look to match their theme without altering the dress dramatically. We believe simple elegance is the way to go with beach wedding dresses.

Flirty wedding dresses are very popular too, especially if you’re going for a fun theme, like perhaps a 1950s carnival theme. Think tea-length, just below the knee, and personalised touches, like perhaps capped sleeves, an embellished bodice, or a pastel underskirt. We recommend looking for wedding dresses made from organza, if you really want to put a bounce in your step. You’ll be on cloud nine!

Many brides want nothing short of glamour on their Big Day. Make a statement in a shimmering body-hugging fishtail gown to show off your curves, and go for a V-neck or sweetheart neckline. Diamanté is your best friend when it comes to finishing off these types of wedding dresses.
