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.

Mira Zwillinger 2017 Whisper of Blossom - Flora Dress

Mira Zwillinger 2017 Whisper of Blossom Bridal Collection

Mira Zwillinger’s 2017 bridal collection, Whisper of Blossom, embraces palettes of nudes and roses, combining shimmering branches and vines with gentle, hand-cut flowers. The gowns, with ‘light as-air’ appearance, are exquisitely feminine with sequinned clusters, silk petals, and sheath silhouettes.

Mira Zwillinger 2017 Whisper of Blossom - Flora Dress

The collection has been designed around the beautiful moment when the first buds of life appear on the naked branches, still shuddering from the cold winter. When nature starts to whisper and hum its tune of rebirth and renewal. The moment of humble grace right before the flourishing blossom. The moment of pristine stillness, hinting at the eye-opening magnificence to come.

Mira Zwillinger’s 2017 dresses feature delicate fabrics of silk, chiffon, lace, and tulle, all covered in hand embroidered flowers and branches, and bold 3-D floral appliqués. There are sheer sheaths, separates, a-lines, and column dress styles.

The Whisper of Blossom dresses are edging on daring, with lots of sheer fabrics and illusion looks. Our favourite wedding dresses from this stunning collection are…

Flora

A strapless, tulle ball gown style dress, Flora has a beautiful branch embroidered bodice and hand floral appliqués.
