The best in fashion from around the world


Wedding dresses to suit your dream theme

When it comes to planning your big day, theme and style come into play early on. The style of your wedding or the theme whether it be vintage French, cinema chic, English countryside or bohemian beach, has an impact on the venue that you choose.

After that you will find that you build upon your theme, making sure every last detail works together and culminates in the style of wedding you have always dreamt of. Of course the wedding dress will fit into your chosen theme and can be the centre piece of your creation.

When I’m talking of themes here I’m talking elegance, concept, drama; not Disney, wild west or the big top at the circus! Plus I list three star features that will make your wedding stand out from the crowd.

Great Gatsby

Think glitz, think glamour. A hefty touch of black in your wedding stationery and styling, of course balanced out with over the top gold, a little rose and a touch of cream hues to make it all the more dreamy. If you are working the 1920’s ever so popular Great Gatsby theme, the a Jenny Packham wedding dress is the order of the day.

Sparkle, sophistication and a touch of the American speakeasy after dark glamour. Every bride dreams of a Jenny Packham wedding dress at least once and the Simone dress is just beautiful. Flowing and free spirited with detailing to make you sparkle as you walk down the aisle.

  • Location – New York City Hall
  • Palette – Gold, blush champagne, cream and a touch of rose gold
  • Star Feature – Champagne Cocktails with gold sugar

“In his blue gardens men and girls came and went like moths among the whisperings and the champagne and the stars.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Italian Riviera

Perhaps you are holding a destination wedding to the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento or are recreating such a theme on your home soil. Think deep azure blues of the sea, heady greens of the pines on the sand dunes and a touch of sun shining of white houses as your colour palette for your Italian wedding.

The Marseille dress from the Opera Collection by Caroline Castigliano oozes Italian glamour. The lace dealing makes me think of Dolce & Gabbana photo shoots and the V shaped back and scalloped hem speak volumes for stylish European destination weddings.

  • Location – Monastery in Ravello, Italy
  • Palette – Azure blue, off white, sage green
  • Star Feature – Blue wedding cake

English Rose

If you are staying true to your British heritage or simply want to emulate everything that is fabulous from an English country garden. Think vintage rose prints, Grandmother’s china tea cups, outdoor games for the children and a village festival theme.

You can look elegant and whimsically beautiful in this fairytale dress from Tara Keely, designed by Lazaro Perez. The collection is inspired by feminine silhouettes and make fabulous dresses from soft alluring fabrics. Think detailed laces, lush tulles, and accents of shimmering sparkle.
