The ballgown wedding dress features a nipped in waist and romantic, voluminous skirt
created by layers of underskirts and tulle in classic princess style. A detachable ball gown
skirt can be worn over a fitted dress and removed as an evening surprise.
An A line dress nips in at the waist and falls smoothly from the top of the hip continuing that
line to the floor. In plain structured fabrics this silhouette creates a chic and sophisticated look.
In soft flowing fabric it can become romantically boho.
Fitted wedding dresses create an hourglass silhouette. Falling from the lower thigh, a
mermaid/fishtail flares out for a glamourous look while a fit and flare falls from the upper
thigh, a lovely combination of fitted and A line. A fitted column falls softly from mid thigh
for effortless elegance.

Plain and timeless, fabrics such as structured mikados, silks and satins or soft, free flowing
crepes and chiffons make a bridal statement that is simply stunning.
Hats off to the designers who take lace to a new level every season. From statement to
subtle, geometric to floral there is a lace out there for every bride. If you love detail this may
be the fabric for your dress. A combination of lace and plain fabric is also a fabulous option
for those who like a little of both.
Amazing beading creates amazing effects… from a hint of twinkle to full on sparkle, from
contemporary style to vintage glamour. The contrast between the plain and beaded areas of
the fabric are carefully designed to enhance the form of the dress.
A high neckline frames the face, neck and hair beautifully. Round, Bateau (boat)
and halter necks create a feeling of elegant modesty and designers will often combine
this with a dramatic back to provide an element of surprise as the bride walks away.
A sweetheart neckline curves over the bust and dips in the centre. It looks equally stunning
with or without straps and sleeves. A sweetheart line is often used to create the corset look
under transparent lace as in the wedding dress worn by Kate, Duchess of Cambridge.
A V neckline creates a flattering, elongating effect, drawing the eye down to the waist. It can be worn
with straps of any width or with sleeves. A dramatic plunging V adds drama for the evening which can
be softened for the ceremony with a detachable modesty panel.
Off the shoulder straps extend the line of the neck and shoulders elegantly covering the top of the arm.
Bardot or soft drape…the effect ultra feminine.
On the shoulder straps can be delicate like a ballerina’s, a wisp of beaded lace
or tulle or bold for dramatic effect. Shoulder straps create a pretty frame the face
and form the structure for the design of the back of the dress.
A strapless gown flatters the neck and shoulders while drawing the eye to sparkling eyes and an excited smile.
Fitted correctly under the bust, a strapless neckline acts as a corset, nips in the waist and does not slip.
A sleeveless dress works beautifully with a high neckline and creates opportunities for a
dramatic back to the dress. It can be created in transparent or opaque fabrics.
Long sleeves whether fitted or full, transparent or opaque, make a timeless, elegant statement
and draw the eye to the wrists, hands and that all important wedding ring.
A covered back frames the hair and the back of the neck beautifully.
It looks equally stunning in plain and decorative fabrics.
A low back creates a jaw drooping, elongating effect by drawing the eye down the entire
length of the dress to the tip of the train.
Head turning back detail can take the form or elaborate straps, beaded or lace illusion,
a key hole or a combination of all three – the sky is the limit.
A short train makes a simple statement and is perfect for ease of movement in an intimate wedding venue.
Looking for the wow factor for the ceremony and photos? then a long train is the way to go.
Voluminous or flat to the ground, simple or elaborately trimmed, a long train can be bustled
up for dancing the night away.

of the fabric it is made from. A very detailed, beaded lace for example is more expensive than a simple lace.
