Charlotte Balbier (daughter of Amanda Wyatt, a name that will be well-known to brides!) designs deliciously feminine bridalwear that’s ideally suited to summer weddings due to her emphasis on floral motifs and light fabrics. This one stood out from the collection for me though – not only because short dresses are so ‘in’ at the moment, but because it manages to be so elegant and ‘grown up’ despite its brevity. I particularly love the scalloped edging on the skirt.
Balbier’s dresses are great value for such beautifully designed frocks, coming in at between £795 and £1400, so are a great choice if you don’t want to completely blow the budget but want a designer look on the day. This dress is available along with several other pieces from the range at Victoria Brookes Bridal.
