Gone are the days of being surrounded by an army of bridesmaids frantically trying to fix a crooked veil. Be fashion forward and opt for a traditional bridal cape instead. These beautiful floor length capes make for a dramatic and regal look. Also a perfect way to transform your look for the reception by simply removing your cape and fully exposing your beautiful gown.

Not every bride wants a traditional white gown. So for our more daring women we suggest the metallic gown. This look is a major part of many fashion designers 2019 bridal collections and is a sure way of taking the limelight! Why not dress your reception room in subtle tones of whites and creams and wear the bling yourself instead!

Bows are one of next years more feminine rages. From oversized floppy bows to perfectly positioned diamante bows you can’t get it wrong. A coloured bow is a great way to make your look more vibrant or even tie in with the days colour scheme.

Finally a timeless style that never fails to deliver. A classic number turned chic and modern is the simple tailored gown. The term “less is more” is beyond accurate in this case. No need for bling or embroidery. A beautifully understated, high neck, silk gown will just as equally achieve the wow factor every bride is looking for.
