A refined grace
Sorrento is the perfect marriage of modern and vintage, which gives it a beautiful timeless quality. This sheath design hugs the curves but still feels modest and the classic lace looks stunning combined with the sleek silhouette.

The V neckline is low, but not too low, so it still provides plenty of coverage. The bodice also features an underlayer of Chantilly lace, for a totally luxurious feel. We love how the lace continues down the hips too, accentuating their shape. If you take a closer peek at the bodice, you’ll see it also features beautiful clear sequins, for a subtle touch of sparkle.
At the back, the illusion straps frame the shoulder blades perfectly and provide plenty of support, while the concealed zip ensures a great fit.
The crepe skirt skims curves beautifully and then finishes in a small but elegant train, which is ideal for brides who want a gown that’s easy to move in. Wear this with our fitted Wunderskirt too, which will sculpt and define your figure so you feel super confident in this figure-hugging design. Then it’s time to have fun with the accessories! This understated style is a dream to dress up, so you can add as much or as little as you want. For a look that simply won’t date, try it with our traditional Regency tiara and our satin-edged Loulou veil. Then, for a little extra shimmer and to highlight your waistline, wear it with our simple Leonie belt too. Alternatively, if you’d like a similar style but with a slightly higher neckline, take a look at Diana instead.
Gorgeous Landon is an elegant strapless crepe sheath with a delicate covering of romantic lace. Stretch crepe is the ideal material for classic wedding gowns, as it hugs the figure and creates an unfussy but flattering silhouette. It's the ideal match for our clever Wunderskirt too, which will enhance your curves even more. The sweetheart bodice also looks effortlessly elegant and features supportive boning, so you’ll feel confident and comfortable all day long.

Back to basics
The back is simplicity itself, with its low scooped neckline and layer of decorative lace. The simple row of covered buttons is all the detailing that’s needed here. We think this style looks divine with an equally simple, full-length veil too, such as elegant Willa.
The exquisite embroidered lace continues onto the hips and then down to the beautiful trailing skirt. The contrast between the soft ivory crepe and the lace cut-out train is just breathtaking. For a bit of extra sparkle try this look with our Estella belt and our Petal tiara. Alternatively, if you’d prefer a sheath with straps, take a look at Richmond instead.
