Deceptively simple

Shimmering Mikado does all the talking here. This clean-cut, mermaid style has been designed to elongate the body, with elegant seams that draw the eye down the length of the dress. There are also feature seams across the side of the bodice and it has a high sweetheart neckline for plenty of support and coverage. Lastly, detailing has been kept to a minimum, with just an elegant row of covered buttons that runs all the way down the back to the glossy train.

Try this dress with our clever Wunderskirt, to add extra volume and to kick the train out perfectly. It also looks amazing with a subtle touch of sparkle at the waistline and a pair of statement earrings.

Uncomplicated chic

Ellwood is a modern sheath that mixes flattering plain crepe with on-trend lace to striking effect. Crepe is the perfect material for keeping it simple. It’s easy to wear and skims curves without clinging, before falling into a softly draped train.

The lace here is beautifully understated and adds subtle detailing to the bodice and neckline. The full-length illusion sleeves are super pretty and provide attractive coverage and, at the back, there are a neat row of covered buttons. Pair this look with a classic tiara and you’re ready to go! 

Sleek lines and chic lace

Finally, we have beautiful Theoni, which combines simple, flattering crepe with slightly more intricate Chantilly and embroidered lace. The on-trend bodice features sophisticated semi-sheer lace and a delicate scalloped neckline. The straps also sit perfectly on the shoulders, flattering the arms and décolletage.

At the back there are neat buttons that lead down the skirt to the striking cut-out lace hem, edged in soft eyelash lace. For brides who want a subtle and classic look, we’d suggest keeping the accessories to a minimum, so the focus is on the sleek lines and stunning lace. Simply add our stylish plain veil and a pretty hair comb to finish the look.
