When it comes to finding a wedding dress, the internet can actually make things pretty hard - finding your dream dress then discovering it's from five seasons ago and is only stocked in New Zealand can be a bit of a bummer. There's also the fact that your local boutique might not stock any of the designers you love. Well luckily for you, more and more boutiques are starting to shoot Look Books, where they style the dresses they stock in a gorgeous piece of editorial. I'm loving this new trend as it really allows brides to understand the vibe of the boutique, making sure their visit is productive. Love the look book? Then you'll be likely to find the dress of your dreams at that particular store. The latest look book from Archive 12 is right up my street, 90s styling + celestial details = bridal perfection. This is what happens when the world of fashion and bridal collide...I like to think of it as a cosmic explosion...
{Behind The Scenes}
Archive 12 is changing the game for Irish bridal style, offering a unique edit of original vintage and designer wedding dresses. We cater for BOHEMIAN and MODERN brides, who think outside the box and want a wedding dress that truly reflects their personality and style. We have selected the coolest bridal designers, bridesmaids and bridal accessories, all exclusive in Ireland to help style your bridal look. The LOOKBOOK features dresses from bohemian US brand Daughters of Simone, and bridesmaids dress from Rewritten. DOS have a relaxed boho vibe for the free spirited bride - captured in crochet lace and off the shoulder gowns - is heavily inspired by the 1970s and the rock n roll music scene. The Mykonos dress in Chianti by Rewritten was a perfect addition as its lovely dark tones complemented the light and shadows within the shoot. The cold shoulder style dress also picks up on the 90's styling and would be a great match with the Laurence gown by DOS.
