Think full-on lace is to old fashioned? Sparkle down the aisle with an organza or satin gown that will reflect the light and make you shine like a star.

Sparkly details are working doubly hard this year. Not only are they glamorous, they’re practical too. Sparkly belts cinch in waists while embellished shoulders balance out pear-shaped figures.

Hollywood glamour

Fabrics with a subtle sheen will lend your look a red-carpet feel. If you’re planning a glamorous Hollywood-inspired celebration, silk or satin dresses will be perfect for you. If you want to flatter your figure look for gentle fishtail designs with sweetheart necklines and ruching at the waist.

Celebrities love Suzanne Neville’s designer gowns, but companies like Maggie Sottero, Sincerity and Romantica of Devon all have some great budget-friendly alternatives.

Crystal and diamanté accessories work best with this look. Planning a winter wedding? Go for duchess satin as these will be slightly warmer in the cold weather.
