“Our new 2018 Over the Rainbow transforms you into a dreamy world where you feel as if you are walking on clouds. This collection encompasses a fresh and soft pastel palette such as powder blue, light mint and light peach. Each piece evokes delicate formations of clouds in featherweight tulle, wispy feathers and illusion details. Every dress we create is a work of art, with no two exactly alike.” – Mira Zwillinger

I am in love with all these dresses, but especially the dresses that dazzle the most (I do love a bit of sparkle and unique detailing!). These are my top three dresses from the Mira Zwillinger Over the Rainbow collection.

“The inspiration for this entire range has come from my travels around the world. Having been in Australia for the last couple of months, this has inspired my light, flowing dresses.

“As well as the design of the dresses, the fabrics have had a global route too. This particular collection includes fabrics from Italy, France, Portugal and even from as far away as Asia. I worked very closely with a hand-beading expert in India which helped me to come up with lots of beautiful beaded designs. The soft, flowing fabrics are a key part of the feel of the collection, making this range perfect for laid-back, boho brides.” – Shanna Melville

The bohemian vibe lent itself perfectly to the sun-soaked photo shoot in Byron Bay, Australia. Powder-soft sand and gleaming sea was the perfect backdrop for the gorgeous 2018 collection.

My favourite three dresses from the Shanna Melville 2018 collection are…

I have always loved a lace wedding dress and Ava has to be one of my all-time favourites. The intricate lace work that overlays the blush underskirt is so pretty, and the lace detail on the sheer back looks amazing.

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.
