Your wedding dress is the centrepiece of your whole celebration so it has to work with your theme. So we asked the experts at Impression Bridal to pick 8 of their best new gowns to complement 2014’s hottest wedding looks and here’s what they’ve come up with…
Best for… Blush theme
Statement wedding dresses don’t come much better than this! Style 10211 from the latest Impression collection has a dramatic laser cut swirl and flower design and the tulle overlay can be ivory or rose gold as pictured here. The latter shade would be perfect for a blush theme – this year’s hottest bridal shade.
Best for… Vintage theme
Style 10230 is a beautiful trumpet-shaped slipper satin dress with beaded illusion, sweetheart neckline – one of the most flattering styles around. Your natural curves and waistline will be accentuated by the clever pleats and ruching here, with further shape dramatized at the knee with a fabric pinch.
Best for… Fairytale theme
A romantic ballgown perfect for a fairytale theme, style 10234 from Impression is easy to wear and flattering for any bride. Dramatic embroidery can stand out in rich Antique Gold as pictured here or in all ivory for the more conventional bride. This colour is also ideal for an autumnal celebration.
Best for… Glamorous theme
For brides who want to make a statement in lace, Amanda by Cristiano Lucci is the perfect choice.
