Seen The Dress But Don’t Know Who Designed It?

Having spent weeks visiting all the local bridal stores and searching what feels like the whole, entire internet, you have at last spotted the most incredible wedding dress on some random web page or social media website. The problem is, all you have is an image to go by. You have no idea of the name of the dress nor the name of the designer! It is a most frustrating position than an increasing number of brides are facing in this modern digital age.

So you’ll be relieved to hear that help is at hand thanks to our unique, International Wedding Dress Search & Identification Service. Just send us a pic of the dress or a link to the image and not only will we be able to identify the name of the dress and the name of the designer, but we can also tell you if it’s available to buy or hire and how much it is.

Furthermore, if it is available we can order it for you and have it shipped directly to you or to a store of your choosing. And if you then need help with the fittings and alterations we can even arrange all that too! What more could a bride-to-be ask for?!

To find out more about our exciting new Wedding Dress Search & Id service just give us a call or email us.

Yolan Cris – Fringe Wedding Dresses

Fringes were first seen on dresses back in the 1920’s when women started wearing short dresses cut above the knee. A fringe simply offered the illusion of length and a more modest style of dress, at a time when flesh was not so openly flaunted as it is nowadays!

Yolan Cris Cedro 2017
Yolan Cris Cedro 2017

Fringes have been adorning wedding dresses in a variety of formats for a few years now, but never more so than today. Here we bring you a selection of dresses from Yolan Cris’s 2017 impressive collection. Funky, bo-ho, stylish, super hot and sexy – perfect for shaking it on the dancefloor!

Lusan Mandongus Bridalwear

Ethereal, timeless, refined, sensuous, sophisticated, mysterious and sublime… these are just a few words that have been used to describe Lusan Mandongus bridal dresses.

It comes as no surprise then that the Spring & Autumn 2016 collections are no different as the creative team behind LM continues to astound and impress brides across the globe.

Drawing on a range of influences – none more so than the constellations and stars in the night sky – the inspired 2016 collection unites a richness of heavily embroidered, overlapping couture lace and beadings with a baroque-like style.

Incidentally, the names of all the dresses are taken from the stars and constellations they are inspired by.

As predicted, the 1920’s art deco influence on bridal dress designers remains strong.

Interestingly you will see that a number of designers have been drawing inspiration from the 1960’s.

Wedding Dresses, Autumn 2013

It was New York’s Bridal Fashion Week earlier this month. To sum up, here are a few random comment from the media.
Mindy Weiss: “This season, the designers are doing a lot with lace and sheer sleeves. This adds such a delicate and Grace Kelly-like touch to the gowns that make them timeless and elegant.”
Time Magazine: “…juxtaposed dramatic flowing skirts with sleek columns, delicate lacework with voluminous tiers, and headpieces galore…”
Elle UK: “…from simple, barely-there necklines to ethereal confections lavished with lace.”
Daily Mail: “… traditional romanticism reigned… with dramatic flowing skirts walking next to sleek column silhouettes, all prettily decorated with delicate lacework or tulle tiers; and in an ode to Anne Hathaway, veils were replaced by statement headpieces.”

I’ve included a very small selection of dresses that stood out for us. More to be seen on our Pinterest site.
