Q. I want my wedding dress to stand out and look amazing. Do you have any ideas of how I can do this?

A. Edyta Ziomek says: A bespoke hand-painted gown is sure to make you stand out on your big day. At Tropical Ever After, we design and create one of a kind, tailored, hand-painted wedding dresses for women who reach for their dreams and are not afraid to go beyond the usual standards.

If layers of tulle and laces seem inappropriate for your wedding ceremony, opt for something perfectly tailored to your figure. When choosing your dream dress, you can pick a ready-made creation that will be tailored to your measurements or create a bespoke design especially for you, fitted to your figure with personal character. When looking for your dress, opt for a style that will reflect your personality. We can also provide bespoke gowns for the bridesmaids, flowergirls and matching accessories for the groomsmen.

Q. I'm looking for a dress that's fun and a bit unusual. Do you have any ideas of what I should look for?

A. Sarah Betton says: We often get brides wanting something a bit different to the norm. A great way to achieve this is by looking for an alternative colour to the traditional ivory or white. Many designs are now available in a range of colours, from subtle blush pinks to daring blacks.

Considered a tea-length dress. These look fun and quirky, especially when teamed with unusual shoes. A pair of bright coloured heels can tie the whole look together.

A huge trend for 2022 is 3D florals, and we can't get enough of them! Whether it's a decorated train or the whole dress, these embellishments are a great way to ensure you stand out on your big day.
