Delphine Manivet 2014 Collection

 

You know that feeling when you see an amazing collection for the first time, one that literally makes you say ‘WOW’ out loud and skip through all of the images really quickly as you can’t wait to see everything?

No? Surely you feel like this, even looking through the ‘New In’ section on the Topshop website! 

Well, this is the feeling you will get as your eyes feast on the delights of the new Delphine Manivet 2014 Collection.

 

Seriously, if you had to pick one favourite from this collection you would be hard pushed to select just one. Each elegant gown displays delightful (and in some cases intricate) detailing whilst at the same time being oh-so-wearable. Dropped waists, beyond-beautiful lace panels, long bows and capped sleeves are just a few features which give the modern twist to this stunning collection.

 

The Delphine Manivet bridal gowns are perfect for destination brides-to-be too; from knee-skimming styles perfect for beach brides, to city-sleek silhouettes and lightweight lace and backless beauties, wherever your day is taking place there’s a dress for you.

The BHLDN SS14 Bridal Collection is brimming with gorgeous gowns that are ideal for a destination wedding. 

 

When you are choosing a destination wedding dress you need to consider the climate you’ll be in on your wedding day. Lightweight gowns in chiffon or silk are perfect for keeping a fly away bride cool and comfortable in the summer sunshine, as well as being easy to pack and transport, with minimal creasing.

 

The floaty, feminine styles in the new BHLDN Collection are everything a destination bride could dream of; not only are they created from destination-ready delicate fabrics, but each one features exquisite detailing too and they all come with a price tag that won’t break the bank.

Phase Eight SS14 Bridal Collection

 

The new season Phase Eight Bridal Collection has arrived and it is exquisite! Inspired by the glamour of vintage Hollywood, the sleek and sophisticated styles are simply perfect for a destination day or a wedding closer to home.

 

Here to tell us more about the collection is the Phase Eight Bridalwear Designer:

 

What was the inspiration behind the wedding dress collection?

  • “The collection was inspired by glamorous Hollywood looks of the 1930’s and 1950’s with embellishments taken from exquisite vintage embroidery and beadings.”

 

  • “I would describe the collection as ultimate femininity, with a glamorous and whimsically beautiful vintage feel. Real wedding dresses that are soft and special to wear with delicate detailing, lots of beading, fringing and lace.  Each bridal gown, accessory and bridesmaid dress has been created to ensure that you can customise and personalise your look with beaded belts, lace edged veils, coloured sashes to link in with your bridesmaids and capes in feathers and beading to give glamorous coverage.”

There’s something so timely and elegant about lovely long sleeves on a bridal gown. Practical for a winter wedding, sleeves will give a bride more cover as well as adding a tasteful, traditional twist to a wedding day look. Remember how demure K-Middy looked in her graceful Alexander McQueen gown? Chic and then some!

 

If you decide to go for a sleeved dress, make it super special with ‘wow’ factor fabrics; intricate lace inserts, delicate beaded detailing or angelic, floating chiffon.

Bringing Sexy Back – Wedding Dress Inspiration

You Mean The World To Me

On your wedding day you want to look uber-gorge from every angle going and especially from behind as you saunter down the aisle (we’re thinking Pippa Middleton styley!).

 

So when you’re choosing your wedding dress, you might actually pay as much attention to the rear view as you do to the vision from the front. Of course those crafty bridal designers are clued-up on this and some seem to make the back even more dreamy than the detail on the front.

 

We have a real obsession with beautiful button details on a bridal gown; there’s something so timely and elegant about a buttoned-back gown. They conjure up images from the movie ‘Atonement’ and the oh-so-ethereal Kiera Knightly, elegantly sashaying around a country manor in a slinky 1930s number. Anyway, we digress!

 

So in the words of our favourite trouser snake Justin, if you’re planning on bringing a bit of ‘sexy back’ to your wedding day ensemble, we thought we would share some beautiful imagery with you for inspiration: from beautiful buttons and delicate details to long swaying sashes and silky shoulder straps.
