we've got the dress for you

Responding to the crisis, a crop of second-hand clothing sites and dress rental platforms have launched with the intent of reducing consumption and prolonging the lifespan of clothing.

And yet the one item that most women still buy new (typically at significant expense), wear once and hold onto forever? Their wedding dress.

The reasons for this are largely sentimental (who wants to wear someone else’s wedding dress, right?) and also down to the fact that brides on a budget can now find myriad affordable options on the high street.

Yet given we are facing a climate emergency, might it be time to change the narrative around wedding dress ownership? Could there in fact be some magic in foregoing fast fashion options and instead wearing something fabulous and pre-loved on your big day?

Fashion is constantly re-cycling old ideas and renewing the most loved (and questioned) styles from the past and it's no different for bridal wear trends. Look to the past and take inspiration from vintage styles without the hefty price tag, or the strenuous hunt through thrift stores. Now with an array of brands from ASOS to Carolina Herrera looking back for bridal inspiration, you can have a dress that will last a lifetime and do full circle as did its vintage inspiration. Whether you dream of regal lace or renaissance puff sleeves - we've got the dress for you.

All royal wedding dresses are keenly anticipated but there is always slightly more interest and slightly more pressure when the gown on show belongs to a queen in waiting. On December 4th 1999, Mathilde d’Udekem d’Acoz walked into the Town Hall of Brussels for the start of her marriage celebrations to the heir to the throne of Belgium, Philippe. Mathilde’s marriage turned her into the first Belgian born woman in line to be queen of her country and she made sure her wedding dress underlined her roots and her role as a consort in waiting. Twenty years on, here’s a look back at the royal wedding dress of Mathilde of the Belgians.

Mathilde had two weddings that day, a civil ceremony at Brussels Town Hall followed by a religious marriage at the Cathedral of St Michel and St Gudule. She chose to wear the same outfit for both. The bride appeared before the crowds that had gathered to cheer her on her way to the altar dressed all in white. Mathilde chose a full length coat dress with statement collar and long, fitted sleeves. The centre fastening, with its neat row of buttons, gave way to a full skirt that fanned into a long train (well, this is a royal wedding dress, after all). Beneath the coat dress was a fitted gown in the same shade of deep white.

It was a classic design but, like the bride who wore it, it had hidden depths. Mathilde chose a Belgian designer for her wedding gown to underline her role as the first home born consort her country would ever have. Edouard Vermeulen of the design house, Natan, created the gown which was also the last major royal wedding dresses of the 20th century.

There were links, too, to other Belgian queens. The bride borrowed an heirloom lace veil from her new mother in law, Queen Paola, to complete her wedding outfit. The vintage Brussels lace had belonged to the family of Italian born Paola for decades. It was held in place by a tiara loaned to Mathilde by Queen Paola but which had first belonged to Queen Elisabeth of the Belgians, the great grandmother of the royal groom, Philippe. Mathilde carried a rather large bouquet of white flowers and foliage.

Ultimate Wedding Outfits To Flatter Every Cute and Curvy Bride!
Hey curvy brides-to-be! First of all, pat yourselves for being blessed with those curves that make a woman look utterly cute and charming. And next, come out of those woes of trying dozens and dozens of dresses to just find your “the wedding dress”. Of course, you need to try wedding dresses before you choose “the one”, but not up to the point of exhaustion. You should start navigating through the shopping process by imagining yourself in the bridal outfit and looking out for photos of brides that look like you. Besides, you shouldn’t conform to the typical trends for curvy girls and try experimenting with a variety of cuts. Because you never know what will end up looking perfect on you! To help you in those beautiful moments of picking up your dream wedding dress, I have come up with the best dressing styles that will not just make you comfortable and confident but even endow you with glamour on your wedding day. This is for every curvy bride! Designer Lehenga With Choli Lehenga with choli is one of the most popular traditional Indian wedding attires that look equally beautiful on slim as well as plus size women. All you need to do is opt for a choli design that has an open neck and camouflages your midsection like jacket style choli, long choli or corset style choli. For lehengas, choose a straight cut design that falls right from the waist without adding volume to the midsection. This ultimately endows a long and lean look to your body. Designer Lehenga Saree This is one of the smart variations of the traditional lehenga choli that makes you more comfortable with a designer pallu that is draped like a saree and covers the blemishes in the midsection. With the lack of pleats and minimalistic design, the outfit adds a lean appearance to the body - reflecting the silhouette in a positive style. Designer Wedding Saree Another favourite wedding attire of Indian brides, sarees are a beautiful option for plus-size women of any body type as you don’t have to worry about size and fit. But you need to go the innovative way and pick a heavy design for your wedding such as a layering trend. With that, be sure to select a soft fabric that drapes snugly around the curves while eliminating the fluffy look. To wear a smarter variation of a blouse, go for a choli style blouse or a long jacket that camouflages elegantly with your body curves. Straight Fit Wedding Kurtas Straight salwar kameez is coming out as a style statement for many and being a plus-size bride you should definitely opt for one. With a straight fit kurta, you can choose from different types of bottoms such as palazzos, churidar, pant, or legging. Indo-western Gowns Indo-western gowns are trending these days and you can choose one to flaunt at your engagement function, reception party or the wedding day. With indo-western gowns, you can choose from a variety of embroidery work or stone and crystal work that simply accentuates your curvy figure positively. Sleeveless Gown In Lace And Tulle Lace and tulle are beautifully compatible with wedding gowns, and a well-blend of textures endows warmth and depth to your appearance. But this type is strictly recommended to have a heavily embroidered bodice. So, this makes a perfect bridal outfit for a beach or church wedding where you can walk down the aisle with confidence. Full Sleeves Gown A full sleeves gown with intricate embroidery, scallop neckline and satin overlay will simply flatter you as a bride. What’s more, lace-adorned sleeves will add an attractive elegance to your look and at the same time make you look slimmer, fashionable, and gorgeous. So, how about a winter wedding? Fit And Flare Mermaid Style Gown Mermaid style gowns are a sexy blend of a classic and aesthetic modern look. These are figure-hugging dresses that will snug to your curves at the right places. For curvy brides, a heavily embellished body, transparent sleeves, and a narrow V neckline will certainly up your style statement. How about wearing a dress with a veil? Bohemian Wedding Dress Curvy brides who are looking for a whimsical and effortless look at their wedding have the bohemian beauty by their side. A long or even short sleeveless lace dress would be a perfect match for the countryside or ranch wedding. Ball Gown A ball gown is a great option to make your wedding day enchanting. It is even more amazing to see how a ball gown narrows the smallest part of your body while disguising anything below the waist. You can choose to go with eternal yards of lace, organza or tulle or a faux fur shrug that equally makes you glamorous and cosy on your winter wedding. Body Types, Fabrics And Colours - Tips For Curvy Brides Besides the types of wedding outfits, the body type, fabrics, colours and embellishments chosen emphasize your appearance hugely. So here are some tips to go the right way. Body Type - Plus size or curvy women are categorized into three main body types that include apple-shaped or top-heavy, pear-shaped or bottom-heavy and hourglass. Hence, explore your ‘the wedding dress’ that complements your body type. Fabrics - When it comes to fabrics, there is a huge lot of variety to choose from. Curvy brides should specifically opt for light and flowing fabrics like crepe, chiffon, soft silk, georgette, and satin that stick around your figure in a positive manner. Stay away from stiff fabrics like cotton and tussar that make you look broad and heavy. Thick fabric like velvet is also a bad option that will make you look bulkier. Colour - You cannot imagine wearing too many colours together as it will end up making you appear larger. As a curvy bride, you need to go for solid colours or colours that are not extremely contrasting - adding to a slim look. A combination of red and pink is a good option. For gowns, curvy brides can opt for a subtle alternative to the traditional white that will certainly stand out. You can choose from a pink, cool-blue, champagne wedding gown with more colours on the list.
Trending Bridal Style for 2015
It's the time of the year again where couple are looking forward to tie the knot. Spring and summer is by far the busiest season for brides. From wedding planning to honeymoon, their bucket is pack with tons of to-dos. If you're getting married this year, I've compiled a list of growing trends. Whether you plan to rent or buy a dress, consider these styles. 1. Sweetheart Neckline This never seem to go out of fashion. This sweet and sexy neckline is more modest than a tube dress. The best part is it looks stunning on almost every size. Definitely, a keeper! 2. Off-White Dress I'm seeing more and more brides opt for a subtle peach and off-white dress for weddings. It's something more dramatic than white but still remains the classic look. Perfect for Spring and Summer lightening. 3. Open Back Beauty Want to add a touch of sensuality while looking sophisticated? The open-back design is the winner. The exposed back design is a compromise between modern and modes without disturbing the crowd. 4. A Touch of Vintage The vintage bride with headpieces is a growing trend last year and this year it will continue to remain strong. The 20s inspired gowns are sexy, low-key and perfect for a boho-bride. 5. Texture Update Want to stick with a classic design and be set apart from all the other brides? A subtle texture with a touch of individuality is the perfect way to go. Look at the tube for example. 6. Tulle Tulle This is a better upgrade of the giant princess-style gown that you've seen in the past. I'm especially drawn by the bottom half design - multiple layers of tulle fabric.
