Having looked so far on our stroll through Summer wedding ideas at some beautiful Rose stationery, the most elegant Summer tablescapes, stunning and scrumptious Summer wedding cakes, breathtaking Summer bridal bouquets, some stylish and cool Groom’s attire and the most perfect palettes, we have covered almost everything you could possibly need for your summer celebration. So with just a couple more weeks to go, today’s Snippets, Whispers & Ribbons is all about THE dress! With 5 of the most perfect wedding dresses for all of you Summer brides…..
1. Off the Shoulder
Thanks to the ever stylish Mrs Clooney wide open necks with off shoulder sleeves are a big trend for this year and couldn’t be more romantic or perfect for Summer. Keep it gossamer light and floaty for a relaxed beach or garden wedding, or look elegant in lace for a timeless formal celebration…..just be sure to slather the sun cream on those shoulders!

2. Plunging & Portrait Backs
Flashing a little flesh to keep cool, whilst maintaining the requisite air of elegance and modesty for walking down the aisle, is no mean feat. But plunging and portrait backs might just be the answer! They walk the fine line between demure and sexy, and are guaranteed to leave some dropped-jaws behind you as you make your grand entrance on your wedding day…..

Colour is a trend that is growing in popularity, with brides and designers alike, and is perfect because not only does it give you the opportunity to show your unique personal style (and in a dress that you could even wear after the big day), but in the pretty palette of pastels that graced the catwalks for 2015, could anything look more summery and sweet?…..

4. Tea Length or Short
Nothing says Summer like flashing those bronzed pins, and nothing says vintage quite like a tea length wedding dress – so what could be more perfect for a vintage Summer bride? They are fun, flirty, fab for showcasing your fancy footwear and not forgetting super cool for those long hot summer days…..

5. Separate Cover-ups
Of course whilst the days may be hot the evenings can still be cool. So why not add a layer of lace for a little warmth, and create a whole new look for the evening celebrations with a delicate bridal coverup? For all of you in love with long sleeves but planning a Summer wedding this is the perfect compromise!…..
