Stand out from the crowd in a statement wedding dress
Stylish, dynamic, unique… a statement wedding dress is one that will completely take your groom’s breath away when he first catches sight of you.
We’re not talking about over the top or flashy, the perfect statement wedding dress combines elegance and sophistication with a design that is distinctive and truly memorable - no easy task!
To show you what we mean we’ve put together a selection of four designs that are all about standing out from the crowd. Figure-hugging, seductive and with trains to die for, these dresses really do have wow factor with a capital W. Enjoy…
Enzo is a glamorous sheath dress from our exclusive Signature Collection. It features ornate embroidered lace from head to toe and there are stunning lace appliqués scattered prettily across the bodice and all the way down the beautiful skirt.
Get ready to dazzle
Everywhere you look on this design there’s dazzling detail. The sweetheart neckline is feminine and flirty while the Chantilly lace underlayer gives the bodice a lovely vintage feel. There’s also fashionable exposed boning, cap sleeves and soft illusion straps, which give great support while looking sensational.
The low square back adds a modern twist, while the sheath-style skirt gently skims the curves before flaring out into a detailed lace border. Did you know that each point on the hem is made up of separate lace appliqués, for a really luxurious feel? It’s truly spectacular! A statement wedding dress can always take a little more embellishment too, and we love this style with our fabulous Petal tiara and gorgeous Willa veil. Finally, add our sparkling Leonie belt and their won’t be a dry eye in the house!
A statement wedding dress doesn’t need to be about frills, feathers and high drama, as you can see from our Ginger design. This fit and flare dress, with its delicate embellishment and low V-neck, is understated yet totally eye-catching.
Shape your look
The bodice is covered with beautifully embroidered appliqués that finish just below the hips. It has elegant beaded straps, inspired by this season’s catwalk trends, split into three stylish smaller straps. If you like this look, check out Dominique too, for similar detailing.
This fit and flare style is amazing for accentuating the waist and you can tailor the look to suit you. Wear it with our 189 underskirt for a softer feel or with our 190 underskirt for more volume. Then just add our fabulous Leonie belt and you’re done!
Glorious Hemsworth, from our Signature Collection, is a stunning sheath design with a super slinky fit and double spaghetti straps that are one of the stand-out features.
Strike a pose
It’s made from figure-hugging crepe and embroidered lace, embellished with shimmering pearls and clear beads. The low illusion back and modern crossover straps are also key to this design’s chic contemporary edge. We love it styled with equally modern accessories, such as our Solstice belt and Deco comb, along with our show-stopping Delevigne cape to finish.
And then there’s that train! The slinky crepe skirt ends with stylish cut-out floral lace, which gives the design a unique finish. Alternatively, for a similar statement wedding dress, take a look at Hayden, Sawyer and Phoenix instead.
And finally, make a truly memorable entrance on the big day in Bali. This figure-flattering Signature Collection design certainly has wow factor! The head-to-toe sequins and plunging neckline are straight from the bridal catwalks. And, if ivory isn’t your shade, it comes in striking champagne too.
The latest trends
This high fashion wedding dress combines two of the latest trends; a sexy plunging neckline and illusion detailing. There’s also a subtle illusion panel across the low neckline, so it looks dramatic but doesn’t compromise on coverage or support. It’s also entirely covered in sparkling sequins, making it super eye-catching!
Beautiful back detail
Turn around and you’ll revel the dipped illusion back. It perfectly frames the shoulder blades, while the chic row of covered buttons provides a stylish focal point. Why not reveal the back design in all its glory by wearing your hair up in a loose contemporary bun, secured with one of our beautiful Calli hair vines? We also love this dress styled with one of our sparkling belts to really highlight your waistline.
A bold statement
And last, but not least, there’s the slinky and seductive skirt. It hugs the curves before trailing beautifully to the ground in a pool of exquisite embroidery. There’s no need to wear an underskirt with this figure-hugging style, so you can splash out on more beautiful accessories, like one of our contemporary veils. And, if you like the look of this modern style, we think you’ll also like our dramatic Wyatt, Harley or Cyrus designs too.
