In keeping with the website’s trendy yet sophisticated aesthetic, the edit of dresses here is infinitely wearable but not ones you’ll see other brides donning anytime soon.
Some of our favourite pieces are a Temperley London all-over lace dress with cap-sleeves, a short, flirty Marchesa number and Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti bias-cut, ankle-length vintage-inspired gown. There’s definitely a variety of styles and brands to suit both traditional and funky tastes.
The Wedding Shop is also home to Greek fashion designer Sophia Kokosalaki’s wedding dress collection, featuring her signature draping and elegant body shapes.
Want to show off your decolletage? The Electra dress is a voluminous strapless piece which can be worn as a skirt too.
Accessories aren’t run-of-the-mill either — leopard-print pumps with blue platforms from Charlotte Olympia’s first bridal collection, glitter sandals from Jimmy Choo, a Lanvin feather-trimmed veil and more.
A nifty feature is The Outfit Creator, sort of a Russian roulette bridal-style.
Line up an accessory, dress and shoes of your choice to see if they go well together. It totals up the price (especially useful for the budget-conscious ones) and you’ve got your entire wedding day outfit sorted.
Bridesmaids, mother-of-the-brides and guests will be happy to know they’re not left out either. And you get more fun out of your choices too with flirty Prabal Garung, Roland Mouret, Lela Rose, Preen and Missoni dresses.
