Truly classic wedding gowns are chic, elegant and have a timeless quality that really won’t date. They should also highlight your natural beauty, with perhaps just a light touch of understated shimmer to accentuate curves or a pretty neckline.

Our Anna Sorrano collection is all about timeless designs, created with rich fabrics and high-quality lace and appliqués. Its classic wedding gowns combine flattering silhouettes, elegant necklines and dramatic trains with minimal beading. The Anna Sorrano look is always graceful and refined.

Below we’ve picked four modern classics from the range. These are dresses that will look just as fabulous in your photographs on your tenth anniversary as they did when you walked down that aisle…

Simple and elegant 

Shimmering Mikado is the stand-out feature here, giving this clean-cut mermaid style a gorgeous subtle gleam. The cleverly placed seams elongate the body and draw the eye down the length of the dress.

Meanwhile, angular and geometric side seams add a stylish contemporary touch. The sleek sweetheart neckline is also high enough to give plenty of support and coverage.

At the back, the only detailing is an elegant row of covered buttons that runs all the way down to the end of the glossy train. This gives the striking Mikado fabric room to shine.

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.

Beautiful sleek lines

Elton is another Mikado masterpiece. The catwalk-inspired bodice, with its cuff detail and elegant panelling, gives this dress a truly luxurious feel.

There are also neat princess seams that flow effortlessly into the voluminous box pleats on the glossy ball gown skirt. It’s a look that’s elegant and unforgettable.

Elton also features a couture-style internal lacing, which will comfortably support you all day long. And, if that’s not enough, it’s also one of our first gowns to be made from 50% recycled fabrics and yarns!

Keep your look classic with just a couple of carefully chosen accessories. An underskirt is a good idea to add a little more volume to the full skirt. Then our glittering Leonie belt will help to highlight your waistline, while a traditional tulle veil is a final touch you need to feel like a bride.

Understated lace

Not everyone loves a bit of sparkle and the most timeless classic wedding gowns are often the ones that keep it to a minimum. Julyana is a flattering A-line with matt-finish floral lace that’s ideal for brides who want sophistication without shimmer.

It features a classic sweetheart bodice with a flattering scooped V-neckline and delicate illusion straps.

These flow into a full illusion back which shows off the rich matt embroidered lace to the full. Can you also spot the subtle heart motif?

The luxurious embroidery then flows prettily down the full skirt. You can wear this with our ballgown underskirt for a little more oomph. A touch of sparkle at the waist is also a great idea, along with a classic Willa veil.

Alternatively, for a little more drama and the decadent feel of silky soft faux fur, try it with our stunning Gia jacket too.

Short and sweet

Finally, we have fabulous Dollie, which combines a beautiful vintage feel with a flattering off-the-shoulder neckline and pretty lace sleeves. Keeping your style classic doesn’t mean you can’t play around with skirt lengths and detailing, it’s often all about how you style your look.

Dollie’s neckline is made from delicate scalloped lace, which also decorates the three-quarter-length sleeves. The supportive sweetheart bodice sits high at the back to hide a bra strap. This gown is also another that’s made from 50% recycled fibres and yarns.

The bouncy tea-length skirt is just made for dancing and is covered with beautiful lace appliqués that lead to a hem edged in detailed embroidered sequin lace. You can wear this with our shorter underskirt too, for even more volume.

For a look that’s the ultimate in classic sophistication, wear your hair up in a neat updo complemented with a pair of elegant pearl earrings. Dollie also looks great with a stylish Estella belt, a simple veil and our gorgeous Alpha comb with its stone-set design featuring glittering round and pear-shaped crystals.
