There are so many flattering bridal trends this season that it’d be a shame not to take advantage of them, right? Boho, A-line and princess styles are big news, while lace and colour are top of the list when it comes to the must-have features brides want to see in a high fashion wedding dress.
So, we’ve rounded up a few of our absolute favourite on-trend styles - no easy feat - to help you find your dream dress. There’s style, glamour and lace aplenty, so enjoy!
An on-trend classic
This stylish design taps into the A-line trend and features a contemporary Mikado skirt and a classic sweetheart bodice covered with exquisite lace.
The pearl-embellished lace on the bodice finishes neatly at the waist and provides a stylish contrast to the sleek Mikado fabric of the skirt.
Look closely and you can see how intricate the detailing is. There’s also an understated shimmer, which is a key trademark of the Anna Sorrano collection.
At the back the lush satin ribbon looks totally elegant, while making sure the bodice hugs the curves tightly.
Add some accessories
Georgia is a great blank canvas for accessories. Here we’ve added our high-necked Caprice jacket, which gives tasteful coverage for the daytime. You can also balance that out with a little more sparkle at the waist. Our Estella belt is the ideal match!
A sleek and simple train
And what more could you want from a high fashion wedding dress? Well, the perfect train of course! Crisp and contemporary, this train will ensure you glide down the aisle in absolute style. Just add an underskirt, or two, for even more volume. And, if you love this look, take a peek at Rowan, Kimberley and Dawson too. We think you’ll like them as well!
Aden is another modern A-line style in shimmering Mikado fabric. The clean-cut silhouette is a look that’s straight from the bridal catwalks.
The bodice is all about subtle understatement and the perfect cut and fit, rather than an excess of glittery embellishments. We love it simply styled with an elegant updo and a sparkling belt to highlight the waistline.
At the back, the luxurious fabric has been subtly accentuated with a simple line of delicate buttons. This design really comes into its own when you look at the glorious train, and the expanse of glistening Mikado satin gives this traditional feature a modern edge. Alternatively, if you love this mix of modern and classic, then you might like our Amber design too.
Leon, from our Signature Collection, ticks all the boxes when it comes to a high fashion wedding dress. There’s the sexy plunging neckline, catwalk-style boned bodice, slinky skirt and so much more!
The big reveal
This daring V-neckline is perfect for fashion-forward brides. Did you know, it’s also cleverly cut to accentuate the décolletage and elongate the body? There’s a subtle crepe belt too, to help define the waistline. Although, for a little more sparkle, you could wear this dress with our glittering Solstice belt instead.
The back of this design is just as breathtaking as the front. The symmetrical lace appliqués are a key trend this season and the high neckline is perfect for offsetting the low-cut front. The appliqués also continue down the fitted skirt, accentuating the hips. Lastly, there’s the magnificent train, which features dramatic cut-out illusion tulle decorated with more beautiful lace. It’s just divine! If you’d like to see a few more dresses with the same kind of wow factor, take a look at Orlando, Houston and Sawyer too.
Light as air
Finally, we have stunning Adalia, which works perfectly for this year’s beautiful boho trend. The floaty chiffon skirt and floral Chantilly lace are a match made in heaven! We also love the combination of the sweetheart bodice and the high illusion neckline, which are the ideal mix of style and coverage.
Go with the flow
It’s hard to believe but the back is even prettier than the front! Dainty floral lace appliqués frame the shoulder blades beautifully before trickling down the top of the skirt. This dress is the perfect match for our bohemian Calli hair vine too, which can be trailed seductively through your hair. Then just add our sparkling Solstice belt to highlight your waist. Paisley and Elsie are also very similar styles that you should also add to your must-try list. Alternatively, if you’d prefer straps, then take a look at Sicily instead.
