Mikaella Fall 2018 Bridal Collection - 2215 Wedding Dress

There are so many exquisite details in the Mikaella Fall 2018 collection. Styles like 2206 and 2215 exemplify today’s style trends, blended with stunning accents which in turn create a beautiful visual harmony. Intricate spaghetti strap backs and corset bodice designs also complement this season’s ultra-feminine collection, as seen in styles 2201 and 2209.

On a ‘side note’, Mikaella has also included some sexy side slits and side seam pockets to enhance some of this season’s alluring designs. 2212 is the essence of sophistication, elegantly fashioned with a sequin lace bodice, full organza skirt and side seam pockets. Style 2202 on the other hand is catered towards brides looking to capture a more glamorous look for their wedding. This wedding dress features a halter neckline, elegant beaded appliqué and full mesh tulle skirt with a side slit.

With so many beautiful wedding dresses, choosing my top three was a hard decision, but here they are…

Style 2200

Wedding Dresses from the Paloma Blanca Fall/Winter 2018 Bridal Collection

French Alencon lace features a lot in the wedding dresses in the latest collection. With intricate design details and a smooth delicate texture, this lace embodies femininity and style, without losing the entrancing shape of Paloma Blanca’s signature silhouettes. Styles 4806 and 4813 are perfect examples of this.

Chantilly lace, soft organza and Italian tulle also feature, giving a soft and romantic feel to each design. Styles 4815 and 4816 both show how the use of texture in fabrics can create sophisticated designs without sacrificing sass.

Super-hot this season, removable accents give brides the ability to evolve their style throughout the day. The beautiful removable sequin Chantilly lace capelet shown with Style 4805 perfectly complements this Crepe fit and flare wedding dress as it add shape to the shoulders.

So, those are some of the standout wedding dresses in the Paloma Blanca Fall/Winter 2018 collection, but here are a few of my favourites…

Style #4804

4804 Wedding Dress from the Paloma Blanca Fall/Winter 2018 Bridal Collection

Created using beautiful sequin Chantilly lace, I adore this fit and flare wedding dress. The deep V-neckline makes this stunning wedding dress super-feminine. It’s classic yet modern, and would look amazing no matter what style of wedding you choose.

The 4804 wedding dress is available in natural lace with blush satin, pearl satin or champagne satin lining.

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

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.

The BERTA Seville F/W 2018 collection brings a feeling of sophistication, glam, and daring use of a keen artistic approach to design. These beauties are some of the stand-out dresses in the latest collection…

Style 18-109

18-109 Wedding Dress from the BERTA Seville F/W 2018 Bridal Collection

I think (after much deliberation) that 18-109 is my favourite dress in the new collection. The long sheer sleeves with floral wrist and shoulder detail look so pretty, and this pretty floral appliqué is then carried over the entire dress, giving a very unique look. Talking of unique looks, I also love the combination of the sheer bodice panel against the lined skirt. The back of this dress, with its deep scooping feature, is really flattering.
