Wedding dresses are indeed special. They are more than a fashion piece.  The wedding dress speaks volumes and has the ability to embody a bride’s personality in the most creative way.

A silk ball dress without bling or lace embellishments.

This is suitable for brides who want to keep a subtle bridal glow, love clean lines and want to look elegant while living her fairy tale dream of being a princess bride. This look is usually accompanied by minimal jewelry, natural looking bouquet and a messy hairdo.

Princess ball dress with dramatic tulle skirt.

This style is relatively light weight and easier to move around in. Many brides love to have a ball dress silhouette for their ceremony and a mermaid style for their reception. This traditional wedding dress style never goes out of style . The bodice can be completely blinged out and embellished or made with lace accents placed on the sleeves, and neckline as well. This dress can be styled with a cathedral veil and a dramatic bouquet.

Mermaid dress with sheer fitted bodice and exaggerated tulle skirt.

I call this a combination of vintage and traditional wedding dress style. The intricate laces placed over the sheer bodice and onto the sheer backside adds a visual interest and texture to the dress while revealing an enviable figure. The dramatic tulle skirt flows from beneath the upper bodice into a full train detail that is simple yet striking. This mermaid fit has an apron skirt of tulle for a dramatic ending.


All-Laced sheath dress with a detachable train.

This timeless traditional style is suitable for minimalist brides. The train is usually detachable to allow for a quick switch for the reception.

A dramatic ball gown that really screams ‘belle of the ball’. It’s time to debunk the idea that you won’t look good in a big ball gown. The perfect bodice paired with just the right size skirt is exactly what you need for that grand entrance!

2 in 1 dresses are not only a great way to minimise your outfit changes on your wedding day, but a fantastic way to still get your princess dream, but elevated with a sexy silhouette.

Are you the Drama? Well, you know what they say- diamonds are a girls’ best friend 😍. Unapologetically main character energy, and we love it!

Sometimes, less is more. Other times, more is definitely more! We usually suggest a simple silhouette with extravagant detail, or vice versa, but one trend we are completely on board with right now, is more more more. Still classy, but definitely MORE.
