KATYA KATYA Wanderlust 2018/2019 Bridal Collection

Described by the brand as their “most desirable to date”, the KATYA KATYA Wanderlust 2018/2019 bridal collection is dreamy and decadent. Inspired by the desire to wander in life with your loved one, elegant designs transport you to a place of spellbinding beauty.

Wanderlust 2018/2019 includes signature wedding dress designs from past collections, but accented with different lace or crafted detailing. The stunning array of dresses, executed from the finest tulle, silk and lace, mix a cool and timeless feel that gives a chic yet luxe edge to the designs.

KATYA KATYA Wanderlust 2018-2019 Bridal Collection - Sahara Dress

Adorned with intricate embroidery, illuminating pearls and Swarovski elements, KATYA KATYA dresses epitomise sophistication. Handcrafted appliqué details emphasise the gowns, while baroque style scalloping frames the back.

As well as enchanting dresses, Wanderlust sees the introduction of bridal separates to the range, with four tops and skirts available to mix and match. Encouraging brides to show their true persona, it also continues the popular concept of brides choosing a different coloured slip. Available in two lengths, by changing from day to night with the simple change of a slip brings diversity to the bride’s gown.

With so much choice there is something for everyone; capped sleeves, sheer sleeves, two-pieces and incredible appliqué detailing. Here are three of my favourite styles that showcase the KATYA KATYA Wanderlust 2018/2019 collection…

20 Unusual Wedding Dresses and Outfits for Alternative Brides

Who said brides have to wear white? Who said brides even have to wear a wedding dress? More and more brides are turning away from traditional white wedding dresses in favour of the unconventional, and there are so many amazing, unusual wedding dresses and outfits available for brides looking for something alternative.

Don’t Fancy a Dress?

With so many jumpsuits and trouser suits being included in bridal collections many brides now opt for this modern alternative. Model Emily Ratajkowski recently chose to wear a £120 mustard yellow trouser suit from Zara for her wedding, which she teamed with black strappy heels and a black hat with veil. Kristen Bell’s wedding was so low-key that she chose a simple black top and trousers with a striking statement necklace for a little bit of sparkle.

Customise It

Do you remember Angelina Jolie’s elongated train, detailed with embroidered drawings of her children? This is just one example of how you can customise your wedding outfit to make it unique and meaningful.

Alternative Wedding Dress Ideas

Never dreamt of wearing an oversized princess ballgown or a slinky figure-hugging number? Not content with wearing a traditional white strapless wedding dress on your big day? Then how about one of these unusual wedding dresses or outfits for the alternative bride? Whether you fancy a trouser suit, want to swap the white for full-on colour, or show off your figure, it’s your day, so do it your way!

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.
