Choosing your wedding dress can feel like a daunting process. Firstly, there are just so, so, SO many options out there it can be overwhelming. Secondly, how on earth do you choose a dress which is supposed to make you look (and feel) like the most beautiful you've ever felt??! Hello, the pressure!! So together with the bridal industry's very best women's fashion experts, we've put together a handy wedding dress guide that shows you exactly what dress shapes, necklines and trains are available.  If you need some wedding dress shopping tips, we've got those for you too. Hopefully, it will make your wedding dress search a little more fun - Which is what it should be! Happy hunting everyone...


Wedding Dress Necklines

An important detail to consider on your wedding dress is the neckline. This will help you decide what accessories you will be wearing - some necklines scream for a statement necklace, others call for a demure set of pearls. And, in some cases, you will feel that the dress alone is enough! Especially if your choice has an embellished or lace bodice and/or sleeves. Note that the neckline of your gown has a huge impact on what bra you need to wear. So once you've made a final decision on your dress, underwear should be next on your list.


Bridal Trains

Nothing makes a Bridal statement quite like a sweeping train. We've listed the different lengths you'll find on our handy pin below so you can be sure to ask for the right type. And remember to ask your seamstress to add a wrist loop, or a bustle if you prefer, so that you can dance in your gown later on. Or you could always get a second, shorter dress for the evening. We're happy to enable that decision.
