Catherine Deane's Charlotte

 

London-based designer Catherine Deane is a magician with fabric. After traveling the world, Deane started her bridal line in 2005 and ever since has been striving to create modern designs inspired by traditional techniques she observed during her nomadic travels. Her dresses are fresh and elegant with a touch of laid back bohemian. Our gown of the week, the Charlotte, has a vintage feel. It is streamlined and easy to wear yet completely decadent. The scallop-lace edge neckline speaks to the art nouveau era, while the silhouette is completely timeless. 

 

 

 

Motil Fine Design Romantic Vintage-Inspired Wedding Gown

Originally named one of Buzzfeed's 50 Dreamy Wedding Dresses You'll Fall in Love With, this unique, vintage-inspired Motil Fine Design's gown features a structured crepe viscose and silk tulle bodice hand-decorated with vintage lace and large faux pearl. The silky chiffon skirt is basically perfection, while the scoop back is all girly and romantic. A sweet satin belt sinches the waist to beautifully finish the silhouette. We love this gown for a sweet and simple garden celebration or even an intimate wedding at a small country inn. It has so much potential. 

Kirstie Kelly's Dahlia

When we think about wedding gowns that embody pure romance, Kirstie Kelly always comes to mind. Her couture collections consistently feature classic styling, glamorous fabrics, and intricate detailing. The Dahlia gown’s mermaid skirt is paired with a rouched silk organza bodice, deep V neckline, and dramatic low back with silky draped detailing at the shoulders. It’s all about the flounce and flow of the fabric, and the way this gown moves is totally dreamy.

Emily Riggs Ophelia

A colorful wedding gown is definitely a unique choice and it takes a certain type of bride to take the plunge, but the jewel tones in the Emily Riggs collection make our knees go weak. The Amethyst tulle of her Ophelia is something otherworldly, paired with two layers of Italian crepe silk satin and a beautiful French floral lace bodice with fluttery fairy princess sleeves.

Mara Hoffman's Juno

Oh, Mara Hoffman, you never cease to amaze us. White, silver, and beige sequins embellish this ivory silk chiffon, long-sleeved wedding gown. The fitted bodice and full skirt starting high on the hip is a traditional silhouette, no doubt, but the front and back cutouts at the waist, sheer sleeves, and geometric beading take this wedding dress to an entirely new level.

 

Elise Hameau's Iris

Elise Harneau’s 2015 bridal collection is chock-full of grace, style, and bohemian beauty. Her innovative designs have been taking the industry by storm since her first debut in Paris in 2012 and her Iris wedding gown is our absolute favorite. A mesmerizing mix of crepe silk, chiffon, lace, and delicate embroidery, the modest high neck gives way to a raised, striped bodice and lace skirt, while the unexpected open back features an intricate floral embroidery. 

Sarah Seven's Quincy

A gown fit for a goddess, this Sarah Seven wedding dress features a dramatic pleated sweet heart bodice and light silk-chiffon off-the-shoulder sleeves, which reveal so much pretty shoulder. And the slit in the ethereal, flowing skirt is perfection. We love this off-white, grey hue for a romantic late fall or winter wedding.

Zuhair Murad’s Mauriane Gown

For the fashion-forward, boho bride seeking a wedding gown with less frill, there are many sleek and fitted options available in the new collections, but Zuhair Murad’s Mauriane gown is one of the most jaw-dropping garments we’ve seen on the runways this year. This illusion sheath is made of hand-embroidered tulle, which falls gracefully to the floor, and the sheer long sleeves are all romance.
