Mix 'n' match
All that glitters
The exquisite embroidered lace has been embellished with glittering sequins to give it a subtle shimmer whenever you move. Also, did you know that the classic sweetheart neckline accentuates the décolletage, making it perfect for brides who want to enhance or create the illusion of curves?
At the back, there’s stylish lacing so the bodice fits your figure perfectly. This also means you shouldn’t need any alterations.
Then there’s the sumptuous ball gown skirt, which features more lovely lace that tumbles down the train before it ends in swathes of soft tulle. If you like this look, why not check out Rowan and Courtney too, which have a similar romantic feel?
Emmy is a fabulous A-line gown with a gently dipped bodice covered with beaded lace. The stylish silhouette enhances curves and is very figure flattering. Don’t forget to try both colours too, to find the perfect shade!

At the back, there’s more of that gorgeous lace surrounding luxurious ribbon lacing, which helps to give the perfect fit. For a pretty princess feel, this dress looks amazing worn with tumbling tresses set off with our vintage-feel Regency tiara.
The sumptuous skirt flares out beautifully, ending in a stunning lace hem. Wear it with our 190 underskirt for even more wow factor as you swish down that aisle. Alternatively, for a similar strapless style, take a look at Amanie too. Or, if you’d prefer this look with straps, check out our Louisa dress instead.
