3383 - Femme by Kenneth Winston
If you are a sucker for detail, the 3383 Kenneth Winston gown may just be the one for you. This magical dress gives the illusion of thin lace detailed straps holding up a very flattering sweetheart neckline, however the dress covers the chest with a fine sheer layer which can barely be seen. This allows you to have a sweetheart neckline and still be held in. The gorgeous lace applique is a consistent theme throughout the design and the shape is perfect for the curvy bride.
WP165 - White Rose Plus
This type of satin is such a romantic fabric. We love this design because it cinches in the waist to create that all important flattering silhouette and also has a gorgeous sweetheart neckline to add depth to the top half of the dress and elongate your upper half. The added lace detail on one side is just what this dress needs. It allows the rest of the WP165 dress to be simple and totally elegant. All brides will absolutely love this design, we definitely do!
SON9109 - Sonsie by Veromia
Who says wedding dresses have to be white? For brides who aren’t keen on the white wedding, how about mocha? The colour of this dress is very complimentary to skin tones. Taffeta is one of those fabrics with a really romantic sound to it when it’s walked in. The material of the SON9109 Sonsie dresss flatters the colour and the shape of the dress and will leave you with a figure to die for. It has a softer neckline which is less revealing than the sweetheart, and stunning embellishment on the straps which matches the detail on the side. This is the ideal choice if you’re looking for an alternative wedding dress.
E16306 - Special Day BB+
This empire line dress uses less fabric than a lot of wedding gowns and would be perfect for a summer wedding when the weather is warmer. The floaty short sleeve caps are super flattering for the arms and are perfect for brides who don’t want all of their arms on show. We love the simplicity of the E16306 by Special Day BB+, it has just enough detail on it and you know what they say, sometimes less is more.

SON91555 - Sonsie by Veromia
Perfect Grecian glamour dress…Check! This empire line gown is a stunning example of a plus wedding dress which is simply detailed in all the right places. Not all brides want big structured dresses and this is an alternative. The belt comes in under the bust, showing off the smallest part of your body, and is embellished with intricate detail from the shoulders to just below the waist. If your wedding is chic, classy and has a hint of vintage, this SON91555 Sonsie number could fit right in.
1628 - Femme by Kenneth Winston
This figure-hugging dress by Kenneth Winston is ideal for our plus size brides who want to show off those gorgeous curves. The lace which covers this gown is stunning, especially leading down to the pattern on the hem. The train sits perfectly and carries the lace detail nicely, which will make for some amazing pictures. The bustier has some sparkles to add to the glamour and incorporates a very sexy sweetheart neckline. Any bride wearing the 1628 by Kenneth Winston will be a real knockout.
Ivy - Timeless Chic
Calling all vintage lovers! The Ivy from Timeless Chic does the tea-length style such justice. The heavier lace pattern gives it the vintage feel and we love the cute bow which breaks up the thick lace pattern. The wide sleeves are perfect as they keep in line with the rest of the dress. This would be perfectly paired with a chic fascinator or quirky headpiece. 50s and 60s fashion trends are coming back and this fits in perfectly. Match this dress with a retro wedding hairstyle to finish the look perfectly.
BB16316 - Special Day BB+
Bring out your inner princess with this beautiful BB16316 Special Day BB+ design. This strapless white dress will turn all the heads in the room. There’s gorgeous detail on the bustier and lots of layers on the bottom half of the dress which gives a real traditional bridal feel to it. The bodice is structured so it will give brides a great silhouette and the volume which the bottom of the dress holds will make your waist look even smaller – who wouldn’t want that?! It has a gracious cathedral length train which fits the classic wedding dress look.
CW004 - Cara Mia Woman
This dress is classy, simple and understated in all the best ways. The pleated fabric flows in one direction over the middle area and is finished with a flower-type embellishment on the side. This is super flattering as it draws attention to your waist which is given a fantastic shape by the dress itself. The sweetheart neckline is less dramatic than other styles which can be nice if you want a more modest style. The strapless neckline of the CW004 by Cara Mia Woman leaves plenty of room to accessorise with a gorgeous necklace and maybe even some sparkles to match the side detail!
W370 - Allure Bridals
Allure’s modest A-line beauty has all the detail you want in a dress. If you’re a lace lover and can’t see yourself in anything else, you’re bound to love this. The soft champagne colour compliments the lace detail. We absolutely love how the concentration of the lace changes from the neckline to the hem. The W370 from Allure Bridals is very slimming and the lack of fussiness in the shape means it will flatter figures effortlessly!

Polly – Timeless Chic
Now for a shorter dress with sleeves! This little number has cute girly vibes oozing out of it. If floor length extravagant gowns aren’t your thing then this is the perfect solution. The neckline on the Polly by Timeless Chic is great for brides with small shoulders as it is a wider fit and exaggerates the width, making your waist look even smaller and balancing out the volume of the skirt. The sleeves finishing in line with the waist draw attention to the detail of the band which is a lovely aspect to break up the lace. The lace pattern has a warm, romantic look to it and it’s easy to accessorise. Wedding dresses don’t come much cuter than this and we just love it.
