Truvelle 2018 Bridal Collection - Andrianna Wedding Dress

Truvelle 2018 Bridal Collection

Oh my days, I am totally smitten with the Truvelle 2018 collection. I am also delighted we’re one of the first to showcase the brand new collection, available online from 6th September and in bridal boutiques at the end of September. These wedding dresses are ultra feminine with sexy backs, plunging necklines and full tulle skirts.

Truvelle’s 2018 bridal collection focusses heavily on design elements carefully curated for real women. Besides providing bridal options for a range of body types and sizes, the new collection boasts Truvelle’s most feminine designs to date, with floating lace elements, endless back details, and added skirt volume. New necklines, like those on the Andrianna and Alix dresses, have proven universally flattering while providing an unparalleled level of comfort.

The indie bridal brand has managed to maintain the minimal style brides associate with Truvelle by infusing simplicity into their details. Long trains in light chiffon give an airy flow, soft layers of tulle add texture without weight or distraction from the clean silhouette, and the ever-subtle infusions of colour create a blank canvas for brides to play with.

Truvelle 2018 brings the brand back to its foundation in effortless and unconventional design, creating simple silhouettes with unique details for the modern bride. The final product is something of a dream.

It was so hard to choose my top three favourite dresses from the collection as I love them all. But, after much deliberation, here they are…

Kim

Come on, how could I not choose ‘Kim’, a beautiful chiffon dress with beaded lace and a modern back tie? While the dress appears simple at first glance, a closer look proves the opposite. Within dreamy layers of off-white chiffon and satin lies a subtle leg slit for added intrigue, and a seemingly uncomplicated bodice is embroidered with beaded Spanish lace. Hidden elements, like a beige mesh, add to the dress structure and comfortability. Chiffon ties wrap around the waist into a unique back feature, where from the skirt flows into a statement train.

Temperley Bridal Dahlia 2018 - Virginie Dress

Temperley Bridal Dahlia 2018 Collection

This has to be one of the prettiest collections of wedding dresses for 2018. The attention to detail and intricate embroidery on the dresses in the Temperley Bridal Dahlia 2018 collection is amazing.

Embroidery features heavily in Temperley Bridal’s beautiful new collection of 11 wedding dresses. The dresses are ethereal, romantic and quintessentially feminine.

The 2018 Dahlia collection brings a distinct sense of individuality to Temperley Bridal. Embellishments inspired by decorative necklaces and tiaras of the art nouveau period adorn the dresses. Finest silk, chiffon, French lace and exquisite tulle combine an art nouveau inspired artwork and create a classic 50’s couture feel.

Temperley Bridal Dahlia 2018 - Virginie Dress

The Temperley Bridal Dahlia collection is all about mixing and matching details from some of fashion’s most iconic eras. A little art nouveau, flashes of 20th-century bohemia and a hint of 1950’s couture. There is a wedding dress for every bride, whether you are looking for timeless classic or heirloom chic.

“I love designing bridal. There is something magical about designing the dream dress for that very important day in a woman’s life. I am allowed to imagine the ultimate fantasy piece and am always so honoured when someone chooses to become a Temperley bride.

“Each dress has to be the perfect blend of functionality and fantasy. A bride must never feel overwhelmed by her dress; it should allow them to be the ultimate version of themselves.” – Alice Temperley

Three of my favourite styles from the collection are…

Emmie

So Sassi 2018 Bridal Collection

I’m sure you know by now how much I adore So Sassi dresses, and the So Sassi 2018 Bridal Collection is delightful and unique. So Sassi is the esprit label from Sassi Holford, with the dresses designed and handmade in their design studios in the South East of England.

The 2018 So Sassi Collection celebrates brides who want to embrace their own style. Brides who are not afraid to make a statement and want a twist on tradition. The collection sees a blend of styles, silhouettes and fabric that creates a fun-loving vibe. New design elements include cold shoulders, fringed back details, feature sleeves and ballerina length tulle skirts. It is a collection that wows!

All the dresses in the 2018 collection are ultra-feminine, have a modern twist on the classic dress and are dancing-friendly. The way the skirt moves, the way the bodice keeps its shape, and not forgetting the internal corset which makes you feel fabulous and sexy, mean you can dance like no one is watching and feel super-confident.

Each style starts its journey in the mind of one of the design team. Whether their inspiration is from the runway or a film, the focus is always on creating something special for a bride’s big day. You can see how they create each So Sassi and Sassi Holford wedding dress in the handmade in England video below.

Designed and handmade by an expert team of pattern cutters, seamstresses and hand-beaders and I’m sure these fabulous dresses will blow you away. I’ve chosen my favourite four dresses from the So Sassi 2018 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.
