Maggie Sottero Cordelia 2017 Collection - Dylan Dress

Maggie Sottero Cordelia 2017 Bridal Collection

Maggie Sottero dresses have long held a special place in my heart, as my own wedding dress was a Maggie dress. I absolutely love the romantic, graceful look of the dresses in the Maggie Sottero 2017 Cordelia collection (oh to get married again!).

Maggie Sottero Cordelia 2017 Collection - Dylan Dress

The 2017 collection infuses woodland enchantment with refined styling and artful details. Made with simple satin, understated crepe and sheer organza, the dresses feature delicate lace motifs and shimmering embellishments. The elegant beading and natural lines offer a modern twist to fairytale ball gowns, while boho-chic lace motifs add romance to the soft silhouette shapes of the dresses.

I cannot choose a favourite dress from the Maggie Sottero 2017 Cordelia collection as they truly are all so beautiful. Instead, I have chosen three dresses to showcase elements of this stunning collection.

Evangelina – Favourite Dress Back

Just look at the back on this dress – it’s such an elegant shape! The illusion and Swarovski crystals accent the shoulders gliding into a shimmering ribbon of pearls and beading that ties in the plunging back. Simple yet chic, the Evangelina dress is such a head-turner!

Irma – Favourite Strapless Dress

If you are looking for a strapless wedding dress then I really hope you love Irma as much as me. Gorgeous lace appliqué cascades over the strapless bodice and hemline of this stunning tulle ball gown. The cute bead and Swarovski crystal belt adds a touch of shimmer to this princess wedding dress.

Bride and bridesmaids throwing confetti in the air

How to Make Something of Your Confetti Moment

The confetti moment continues to stand the test of time. The throwing of confetti features at most weddings, at the point where the couple have just married and can start to relax and really enjoy their day. And what could be better than having your nearest and dearest shower you with beautiful natural petal confetti.

So, why not make something of your confetti moment. Break the mould and do something unique by capturing some alternative confetti photographs. Shropshire Petals share their favourite ideas…

Blow Petals at the Camera

Bride and groom blowing confetti from their hands

Blowing confetti at the camera makes for a stunning photograph, and you can make this as intimate or as fun as you like. Why not get your photographer to capture you blowing into the camera and then groups of your guests too. After the wedding you could print the pictures onto separate canvasses as a great feature for your home.

Romantic Petal Path

What could be more romantic than walking on a bed of petals down the aisle towards your other half, to your favourite song or tune.

Bride and groom on path of confetti petals

Scatter petals down a pre-made aisle or make one by lining each side with small glass jars filled with fresh flowers. You can scatter as much or as little confetti as you like to create the path, depending on how dense you want it to be.
