Now that’s a wedding dress! We are delighted that Ian has revamped this gorgeous gown in the form of Cocorico for this bridal season. The figure flattering bodice remains with the gorgeous of flowers but the look is paired down to a simple mermaid skirt with an extra element of surprise – remove the skirt and party for the rest of the night in cocktail length!
