Searching for a wedding dress to complement your personality, style and shape? Then look no further than boutique wedding shop Toni Bridal based in the heart of Surrey. We asked owner Angela for her expert shopping advice…
A free-spirited bride-to-be needs a simple and effortless dress that moves with her. A modest lace wedding dress like Andrea by Encore offers a sleek and easy look with a beautiful A-line floor length skirt. The only additions should be a flower hair garland and embellished flat sandals. Encore gowns are sexy, sweet, sensational and so versatile for any wedding celebration. They belong to the Watters family of labels catering for all styles and budgets.
Been dreaming about a magical day ever since you were a little girl? Then we’ve got the perfect wedding dress for your personality. The Alfred Angelo Disney Fairytale Weddings Collection is inspired by, and named after, eight of the iconic Disney princesses. These glamorous gowns offer a grown-up and sophisticated take for our modern day princesses. There are eight princesses to choose from but our firm favourite is the Ariel gown. The organza swirls mimic the movement of the sea so well and make it such a dreamy dress. It’s the perfect dress for your happily ever after!
If you are opting for a black tie affair, then Art Couture is just what you’ve been looking for. Art Couture wedding dresses are aimed at the bride who is looking for that something different for their wedding day. Their gowns hark back to bygone eras of Hollywood glamour, made from fantastic laces and taffeta. Classy and elegant, this lace number (style AC369) would be just perfect for a chic city or boutique hotel reception. The crystal-encrusted trim, illusion neckline, nipped-in waist and fishtail hem all guarantee you will look sleek well into the night.
Just because you’re counting the pennies doesn’t mean you have to cut corners. Choose a classic shape like the Bailey by Pure Bridal. The full skirt, embellished bodice and contrasting sash (that ties in a full bow at the back) all give it some extra glam points and will ensure you look a million dollars (for less!). Pure Bridal dresses are extremely good value for money yet they do not scrimp on quality or style.
Want to feel like your dress has been made-to-measure? Try WTOO by Watters. Their Curve Plus Brides collection is perfect for fuller figures. The gowns are beautifully proportioned to size 32W for curve, comfort and compliments. The Eloise is cleverly structured with straps offering added support yet it fits and flares in all the right places for a confident look.
