Q - I want to look on-trend on my big day. What’s fashionable at the moment, and are there any designers I should look out for?
"Dressing for your wedding day is all about finding a gown that represents your inner style and personality. If you want to take inspiration from the hottest bridal trends, there are some fantastic options out there.
"Statement sleeves – there's a wide range for you to choose from including big shoulders, ruffles and detachable puff ball sleeves. This will add drama and edginess to your gown without going too far outside your comfort zone.
"Texture, texture, texture – consider all over lace, 3D fabrics, appliqué or a splash of colour. It’s all about combining fabulous fabrics with glorious textures. By mixing and matching, you’ll be able to create a truly bespoke gown with the wow factor.
"Capes – these are perfect for brides-to-be who don’t want to wear a veil. The designs are super stylish, romantic and perfect for someone who dares to be different.
"Clean lines – timeless and elegant will always be (knock onto one line) on-trend and at Elisa Belle Bridal, we love simple, clean lines in the most fabulous of fabrics. British designers with an eye for detail and a pursuit for perfection do this best. Our go-to favourites are Caroline Castigliano and Sassi Holford.
"Hot designers – Halfpenny London is a brand that’s coveted by the fashion elite and the most fashion-conscious of brides. The designs combine cool with a luxe sensibility, creating innovative, chic dresses and separates for the modern woman. Savin London, whose latest collection is drool-worthy, perfectly blends timeless elegance, craftsmanship and exquisite design that reflects the desires of 21st-century brides."
