A new day, another bridal collection. Today we’ve ventured off the British Isles and gone to… Canada. Here we came across the latest collection of Alfred Sung. The latest additions to his collection seem to cater for whichever whimsy the bride-to-be may have, whether it is full skirted like Carrie in Sex and the City, a more 1920’s style gown or a fishtale cut that would make Ariel jealous. Which is your favourite?
The new Charlotte Balbier wedding dress collection is a stunner. Named Romantic Decadence, it is as pretty as it sounds with rose pink coloured pure silk gowns that evoke a dreamy and romantic feel, while creamy soft satins and rich taffeta offers a timeless elegance. And we’re delighted to see that Charlotte’s signature vintage-inspired French lace gowns are included too.
The Claire Mischevani bridal collection may offer a few dresses for the more voluptuous wedding belles, but we think it has something for all blushing brides. Offering a bespoke service, Mischevani creates ‘one-off’ masterpieces to make you feel unique on your day. Below is a selection of gowns which has been created in the past.
We’ve always embraced our natural curves and know that it is not the size that matters. The most important thing when it comes to fashion is not to opt for the latest trends but to choose a cut that flatters you and your shape. This is particularly important on your wedding day.
Look for a dress with a wide neckline which displays your décolletage without showing too much of the girls (no-one except your husband needs to know what they look like). Choose a dress that highlights your best assets: Got a perfect hourglass figure? Find a gown that accentuates your tiny waist. Often a fitted corset top and a full skirt will do wonders.
An empire line wedding dress on the other hand can make you look top heavy and potentially start pregnancy rumours… The more structure the better, as it keeps those curves under control. And don’t forget the all-important bridal lingerie, as this creates the foundation of your bride masterpiece.
And if your girls need a bit more support, there are no wedding rule book that says the bride has to wear a strapless gown. Consider a 50s inspired dress, complete with halter neck for that essential support!
The autumn bridal collection by Douglas Hannant is a twelve piece delight, full of statement gowns, intricate details and interesting silhouettes. Long sleeves give a nod to the 1930s while one of the full-skirted dresses looks like an origami champion have been let loose. Which one is your favourite?
The 2013 wedding dress collection by Modeca offers delicate lace, beautiful hand beading and lots of layered fabrics for that ultimate feminine touch. Yet another great range from Enzoani, we can already see several brides falling for these gowns. Which one is your favourite?
If there is one thing we can thank Christina Hendricks and Mad Men for it’s that we can finally embrace our curves! Oh and that if you want fiery red hair for your wedding that’s ok too.

Take a look at the designs in the gallery below.

2012 may have been all about pink wedding dresses with celebrities like Jessica Biel and Anne Hathaway opting for the hue at their nuptials, but next year is set to be rather blue if you ask Alfred Angelo and Disney.
We’re not implying that the next twelve months will be depressing in any way at all, but rather that the designer has included some striking blue princess-like gowns in the extensive autumn 2013 collection. But there is a reason for this…
The five ‘glass slipper blue’ dresses have been inspired by Cinderella to celebrate the much loved Disney film’s upgrade to Blu-Ray.
