Alexandra Grecco Cloud Nine 2019 Bridal Collection

For Alexandra Grecco’s ninth collection, aptly named ‘Cloud Nine’, she drew inspiration from time spent in Italy in the summer. Captivated by the serene yet vibrant landscapes of southern Italy, she wanted to breathe new life into vivid florals with bold hand embroidery.

Alexandra Grecco designs balance modern elements with effortless style. Striking details in the Alexandra Grecco Cloud Nine 2019 collection include bold floral embroideries, whimsical silhouettes, unique laces and exquisite fabrics. It’s the perfect mix of classic and contemporary. The clean lines and chic silhouettes contrast perfectly with the soft, ethereal details throughout each dress.

Alexandra Grecco Cloud Nine 2019 Bridal Collection - Detail on Verita Wedding Dress

Soft colours are reminiscent of the brilliant sunsets in the hills of Tuscany, with the striking contrast of embroidery against these soft tones inspired by night time strolls through the ancient streets of Matera. One of Alexandra’s personal favourites with this striking contrast is ‘Palermo’, with its bold midnight embroidery on delicate, champagne tulle.

The designs in the Alexandra Grecco Cloud Nine 2019 collection flatter a range of body types. Incorporating more structure into the dresses is just one way the brand makes their line more accessible to women everywhere. There is a whole lot of pretty, with plenty of delicate hand-embroidered tulle plus some edgy numbers including a chic bridal trouser suit.

Here are just a few of the designs from the collection that will wow you…

If you are looking to stray from traditional bridal fashion, dare to make a striking statement wearing Palermo, with its short structure dress with all over embroidered long tulle overlay. The stunning floral appliqué on Italian illusion tulle is made for women looking to make a bold statement, and the detailing is a work of art. The sheer champagne tulle seamlessly blends into all skin tones, and paired with the open back, this dress is not for the faint of heart.

Alexandra Grecco The Magic Hour 2018 Bridal Collection

Oh my days. I am totally smitten with the enchanting wedding dresses in the Alexandra Grecco The Magic Hour 2018 bridal collection – and magical they certainly are!

If I’m completely honest, it’s rare that I come across a new bridal collection and I love all the wedding dresses – there’s usually one or two that are just not my thing. But I can honestly say I adore all the dresses in The Magic Hour collection. I can even say that one is my favourite wedding dress for 2018 (and I’ve seen a LOT of wedding dresses!). I’ll reveal which one it is later.

Alexandra Grecco designs balance modern elements with effortless style. Her collections tend to stray from tradition, while featuring high-quality fabrics and intricate hand-embroidery. The clean lines and chic silhouettes contrast perfectly with the soft, ethereal details throughout each wedding dress. Alexandra Grecco’s signature ‘effortless’ bridal style is making big waves in the industry; she is most definitely a designer to watch.

Alexandra Grecco The Magic Hour 2018 Bridal Collection - Sawyer Beaded Dress

A recent trip to Ile de Re, an island off the west coast of France, along with silhouettes and details from 1920’s circuses, inspired the Alexandra Grecco The Magic Hour 2018 bridal collection.

Polka dots and fringe feathers give a contemporary and playful feel, and incredible floral appliqués, glittery fabric, exquisite hand-embroidery and dazzling details add romance. I love the addition of colour, inspired by the pastel buildings and hollyhock followers that lined the narrow cobblestone streets on the island. The unique Wilder gown in lavender (also available in Perlé, off-white) is a real showstopper.

With a full array of styles and cuts, there is a wedding dress for everyone in The Magic Hour collection. From figure-hugging elegant white dresses, and coloured, floaty dresses with plunging necklines, to beautiful dresses with capped sleeves and dresses with long sleeves and feather trims. For a dress to dance the night away in, Coco, with multiple tiers of ostrich feathers, will twirl with you.

The most alluring feature is the floral appliqués that adorn the Lana, Wilder and Iris Floral gowns. Inspired by the flowers found on the island, the floral elements are hand-embroidered on illusion tulle and made to look like tattoos. Just splendid!

The Alexandra Grecco The Magic Hour 2018 collection is full of surprises, and perfect for free-spirited brides. These are my favourite three dresses in the collection…

Iris Floral

Iris Floral Wedding Dress from the Alexandra Grecco The Magic Hour 2018 Bridal Collection

I am so in love with this dress. It is my favourite wedding dress for 2018. Extraordinarily beautiful, it’s the pièce de résistance of the entire collection, and quite rightly so.

The intricate hand-embroidered floral appliqué is truly a work of art. Coupled with a plunging V-neckline and strappy back detail that nearly disappears, Iris Floral is the showstopper – hands down. Imagine the look on your husband-to-be’s face when he sees you walking down the aisle towards him.

This beauty is available with champagne or off-white embroidery.
