Elbeth Gillis Mystique 2018 Bridal Collection

As the name suggests, the new 2018 bridal collection from Elbeth Gillis is all about mystique, and it’s just magical. The Elbeth Gillis Mystique collection includes 13 lavish new wedding dresses with mystery and allure.

Everything about these dresses oozes glamour, and I absolutely adore the bodices. They are all sensual and figure-defining, overlaid with transparent fabrics that both hide and reveal with such mystique.

Elbeth Gillis’ 2018 bridal collection features a lot of nude-look lace, an assortment of exotic designs and floral patterns, delicate straps, sexy plunging necklines and backs, stunning sheer back detail and sparkling beadwork. There is an array of silhouettes within the collection; from full skirted ball gowns to flowing mermaid skirts, there is a style for everyone.

As I mentioned there are many stunning bodices within the Elbeth Gillis Mystique 2018 collection. Some stand out more than others for their dramatic style and sumptuous designs, and these are my favourites from the collection.

The bodice on Celia is incredible. It’s daring and sexy, and utterly feminine. The sheer bodice is really flattering, and the intricate lace and beadwork are extremely pretty. This is a real head-turner.

Katya Katya Shehurina Morning Mist 2017-2018 - Cyrene Dress

Katya Katya Shehurina Morning Mist 2017/2018 Bridal Collection

Step into a world of feminine bridal beauty with Katya Katya Shehurina’s 2017/2018 bridal collection, Morning Mist. This collection captures the romance of the countryside and picturesque landscapes of wildflowers, and is so incredibly beautiful and utterly feminine.

The inspiration behind these gorgeous wedding dresses is the earthy, wild, botanical world of romance, where the night ends and the day breaks. For the modern bohemian bride this place feels like home, so quiet even the flowers have not yet woken from the night’s slumber. Yet beauty radiates like the mist all around; hence the name of the collection, Morning Mist.

Katya Katya Shehurina Morning Mist 2017-2018 - Cyrene Dress

“The new collection started from a picture of a girl running through a field. You can only see her back but you can almost feel the warm sun touching her skin and hear her happy laughter. A lot of my inspiration comes from what’s around me – the elements, wilderness, wildflowers, and the contrast of colours. This collection remains routed in the beauty of nature and the feeling of pure happiness and freedom which comes from this.” – Katya Shehurina

I have long been a fan of Katya Katya Shehurina wedding dresses for their creative approach to the designs. Their collections always offer something a little different.

Katya Katya Shehurina dresses are aimed at brides who want to distinguish themselves with elegance and allure, and to let their personality shine through on their wedding day.

The thing I love most about the Morning Mist collection is the pretty coloured dresses, including blush, pink and blue. It’s so lovely to see a bridal collection that really offers something unique.

Walk with Katya as she takes you through this beautiful world with delicate silk flowers and intricate hand embroidery, adding fine detailing to signature laces which have been timeless throughout the Katya Katya Shehurina collections.

All of the dresses in the 2017/2018 Katya Katya Shehurina Morning Mist collection are simply divine. I can’t choose a favourite as I really do love them all, but my ‘stand out’ coloured wedding dresses from the 2018 collection are…

Chantilly

I’m totally in love with Chantilly. I adore the colour and abundance of tulle that creates such a fabulous full skirt with an ethereal aesthetic. Also the adorable white lace appliqué on the bodice with the flattering V-neck that is also mirrored at the back.

Alan Hannah Veritas 2018 Bridal Collection - Enchanted Garden Dress

Alan Hannah Veritas 2018 Bridal Collection

The incredible new Alan Hannah Veritas 2018 collection launched at White Gallery London in May. The collection came to light on the catwalk, and viewers swooned over the beautiful wedding dresses… I can see why!

I adore this new Alan Hannah collection for 2018, mostly because there are some really unique styles and shapes for the new season. The Veritas collection sees slim crepe dresses alongside full dresses adorned with fine beading and hand-painted flowers.

Alan Hannah Veritas 2018 Bridal Collection - Enchanted Garden Dress

“2018 will see a return to sophisticated structural silhouettes, both in full skirted ballgowns and column dresses like Lilith and Dorothea. Fabrics will reflect this, with favourites of ours being Japanese Mikado and Duchesses satin, and for softer lines, silk georgette and organza. Embellishment is subtle and natural with freshwater pearls and floral motifs. Other trends include softer, unstructured crepe and soft satin dresses with interesting details, soft asymmetrical panels, bows, and frills on sleeves and skirts.” – Alan Hannah

Enchanted Garden (pictured above) is my absolute favourite dress from the Veritas 2018 collection. A spectacular dress with scores of tiny embroidered flowers and strong hues of blue and purple, it epitomises femininity.

There are some unique styles in this new collection, so if you are looking for something a little different then how about these stunners…
