I’m about to embark on a hunt for my very own wedding dress and I’ll be honest, I’m finding all a little bit daunting!
As a luxury wedding planner & stylist there’s already that pressure there to find an incredible wedding dress, and whilst with clients I can always tell almost immediately what style of wedding dress would be perfect for them, it’s probably the thing I’m most worried about for my own wedding! I have to admit I have a major problem with FOMO in every day life let alone when it comes to wedding dress shopping, and I literally feel like I want to try on every single wedding dress and visit every single bridal boutique out there before I make my big decision! There are so many stunning and unique designers out there it’s often so hard to pinpoint exactly which one to go for.
I’m sure that there are a lot of other brides out there feeling exactly how I am, and as a luxury wedding stylist I know a thing or two about bridal wear, so I wanted to give you ladies some ideas of designers (as opposed to particular dresses) that I particularly love and that would suit all different brides tastes and wedding styles.
Designer # 1 - Pronovias
This Barcelona based designer is a go to for any bride who adores a classic, sophisticated and very elegant style. the look evokes a modern take on the style of Grace Kelly. it's traditional silhouettes and the use of luxurious laces would make any bride feel like a european princess.
Designer # 2 - Inbal Dror
If you're the type of person who likes to sparkle, Inbal Dror is the designer for you. eACH DRESS IS BEAUTIFULLY COUTURE AND DETAILED USING Beading, emBELLISHMENT AND INTRICATE EMBROIDERY. THE COMBINATION OF SHEER ELEMENTS AND TULLE GIVE THESE GOWNS AN ETHEREAL QUALITY, PERFECT FOR A ROMANTIC SETTING.
Designer #3 - Rime Arodaky
Perfect for the ethically minded bride, Rime Arodaky creates stunning designs that have a hint of rock n' roll style combined with the most feminine and pretty details. i'm particularly obsessed with her 'love is in the air' collection. Rime is part of the modern bridal designer movement that is moving away from the more traditional silhouettes of full skirted gowns, and instead adopts a chic, bodycon yet bohemian style. plus I absolutely love the fact that her designs are inspired by one of mine and nancy's idols stevie nicks.
Designer #4 - Karina Galstyan
This belarus based designer creates a modern fairytale look using ethereal embellishments. i particularly love the crystalised effect of the beading that karina creates. If you're looking for a really unusual coloured gown, this designer would be perfect for you.
Designer #5 - Cortana
Spanish designer Rosa Esteva creates simple yet extremely elegant bridal gowns. the lightweight quality and sheer materials combined with pastel water colours are perfect for any bride who wants to keep cool whilst looking incredibly chic and understated.
