When you’re daydreaming about your wedding day, how do you imagine you’ll feel? If, for you, it’s all about being beautifully relaxed and free and able to celebrate in your own way, then you’re very much a Heidi Hudson bride. 

Effortlessly carefree and understated, Heidi Hudson designs are all about feeling naturally beautiful and absolutely true to yourself. The secret is in the marriage of her deceptively simple silhouettes with the prettiest florals and the softest luxury fabrics. This gives the designs an ethereal quality that’s ideal for brides looking for modern romance.

Below we’ve pulled out the key elements that we think make Heidi’s dress stand out from the (boho) crowd. Let us know if you agree…

Carefree, light fabrics

Each Heidi dress is expertly crafted to fit perfectly without feeling restrictive. To achieve this she uses lots of billowing, lightweight fabrics. These are designed to move easily with you as you laugh, celebrate and dance the night away.

Tulle is the ideal choice for floaty boho designs that move softly as you walk. In the new collection there are delightful sleeves and, of course, airy tulle skirts. You can keep it simple with plain tulle or go for stunning cascading lace appliqués.

Softer than tulle, chiffon has a transparency and fluidity that gives a fabulous bohemian swish to any style. Heidi uses it beautifully to create slim balloon sleeves, pared-back silhouettes and lightweight skirts that drape prettily.

A new way with lace

Contemporary lace is her other design secret. To keep her boho styles feeling fresh and modern, she mixes soft fabrics with modern florals. Sometimes from head to toe and sometimes delicately scattered across bodices and skirts.

She also skilfully uses lines of pretty tape lace, to highlight waistlines and necklines and to give her dresses soft, figure-flattering shaping.

Whimsical straps and sleeves to wear your own way

Heidi's sleeves and straps are always delicately arm flattering. Whether that’s gauzy tulle straps decorated with floral lace or full-length Chiffon balloon sleeves with chic button cuffs.

And what about the straps? Off-the-shoulder straps are ideal for a relaxed feel, and feature softly draped straps decorated with the prettiest lace.

Thoughtful design means that most of the straps and sleeves are also detachable. So, you can style your Heidi dress to suit you perfectly. What’s more, you can also create two looks in one with extra coverage in the daytime followed by a sexy strapless evening look.

Beautifully-cut necklines

A sweetheart neckline is a classic bridal style However, Heidi softens it with delicate lace and off-the-shoulder straps to give it a boho makeover.

There are plenty of plunging necklines too, but these are in relaxed chiffon or surrounded by pretty lace florals to soften the look.

Made for a breathtaking backdrop

Lastly, these designs are made for a picturesque view. That might be gently lapping waves on a tropical beach, rolling countryside or a charming woodland or garden setting.
