20 Gorgeous Wedding Dresses with Sparkle for the Season!
Following on from last week’s post full of the most perfect bridesmaids dresses for the festive season (if you missed it, go take a peek, there are some seriously droolworthy dresses in a swanky palette of gold, black, silver and ivory) I thought I would turn my attention this week to the all important bride with 20 wedding dresses sure to make you shine like the brightest star on your big day!
As a New Year’s Eve bride myself I know the challenge of finding a dress to cause a stir, with just the right amount of glamour and wow befitting of a seasonal wedding. So I have trawled the net to find you the sassiest, most sumptuous wedding dresses with just the right amount of sparkle, for every bride.
We are talking all out, head to toe sparkle sure to knock your grooms and guests socks off – these dresses are perfect for the bride really looking to make a statement and be the belle of her ball!……
If you are looking to channel your inner Hollywood siren then look no further than Johanna Johnson’s Muse for a glamorous yet elegant look that screams sophistication!
Or for a splash of Art Deco romance it would have to be a Jenny Packham…..
(I can just see the ever stylish Duchess of Cambridge in the above design)
For Art Deco with a distinct edge how about a Gwendolynne design?
Or, if you wish to look a little more timeless, then Monique Lhuillier could be your gal!
If you want a dress that is a little less slinky Reem Acra’s Angelika may be just the look with its full skirt….but if boho is more you, then look no further than this Sarah Seven design…..
Now if all out, head to toe sparkle is a little daunting, show-stopping can still be achieved with semi sparkle! Just take a squiz at this lovely design from Temperley London‘s Iris Collection……
(stunning isn’t it? especially with that Juliet cap veil!)
Or you could go for a glimmer adorned bodice like these dazzlers…..
Or for something a little more organic and subtle but equally breataking and with a dusting of sparkle sure to catch that romantic seasonal light Claire Pettibone’s Gossamer…..
I don’t think the above photo really does the beauty of this dress justice, so here’s another look, including the back (the lady sures knows how to create a dramatic back!)
Splash of Sparkle
Of course sometimes all that is required is a hint of shimmer, especially when the dress is as breathtaking as these…..
Who needs a statement necklace with a dramatic crystal neckline and detachable bolero like this one from Hayley Paige
Reem Acra’s Frances also ticks all of the boxes with its elegantly wide and exquisitely adorned illusion neckline.
I love how the detail on this Hayley Paige design is so subtle from the front but makes such a statement on the back!
If long and floaty isn’t for you, show some spirit (and some leg) with these short and more than sweet bridal gowns…..
Oh how I love this funky Temperley London design from her Iris Collection – especially with the fabulous matching coat!
And how about this cute little number from Blue by Enzoani (with just a hint of Audrey about it, don’t you think?)
I am going to finish with a couple of ideas for any of you that might be sparkle resistent brides-to-be – these designs will make a big statement without a single sequin or piece of glitter to be found….
