Best dreamy dress

Linda Lace Angel Sleeve Bridal Dress Ivory



You really can’t go wrong with an angel sleeve on your big day – perfect for those less keen on strapless styles. Plus, the ruched detailing on this bodice hugs your curves in all the right places.


Best romantic dress

Nicky Beaded Lace Bridal Dress Ivory



Puffy sleeves and delicate lace is a match made in heaven (just like you and your bae), which is why we’re totally diggin’ the Nicky dress. When you zoom in, you can also see a delicate line of pearlescent beads stitched around the waist and collar, adding a special finishing touch.


Best royal-inspired dress

Madison Embroidered Halter Bridal Dress Ivory



Channel Meghan Markle’s iconic wedding reception dress with this halterneck ivory number. Our favourite detail? The subtle beading around the bust and oh-so-pretty chevron cut accentuating the waist.


Best traditional dress

Marilyn Embellished Bridal Maxi Dress Ivory



If you’re looking for something slightly more traditional, look no further than the Marilyn maxi dress. The V-neck embellished collar on both the front and back adds a pretty edge, while the A-line shape is a classic silhouette.


Best designer-inspired dress

Tess Brooch Bridal Maxi Dress Ivory



If someone told me this dress was £4k and from a high-end designer, I’d totally believe them. The understated, asymmetrical top, complete with tasteful pleats, is all brought together by a timeless brooch. 


Best vintage-inspired dress

Deja Square Neck Bridal Dress Ivory



Perfect for the low-key bride, this retro square-neck collar is timeless with soft satin piping creating a gentle fit around the bodice before splaying out into a long flowing train.


Best glitzy dress

Shelly Floral Embellished Bridal Dress Ivory



This tulle number is peak glamour with flutter sleeves, a sweetheart necklace, floaty skirt and keyhole cut out at the back.


Best fuss-free dress

Sloane Lace Bardot Bridal Dress Ivory



The Sloane dress has a delicate bardot-style lace collar, complete with a scalloped edge, making for a chic yet fuss-free finish.


Best classic dress

Shauna Crepe and Lace Bridal Dress Ivory



This paired back dress is the definition of timeless, with minimal detailing on the front, classic sleeves and a small lace panel on the reverse. The most noticeable finishing touch, though, is the long line of buttons stretching from the neckline all the way down the back of the dress. 


Best boho dress

Beth Beaded Floral Plunge Bridal Dress Ivory



Boho brides are gonna love the Beth dress, with floral detailing up the top and a slight cinch at the waist before falling into a looser skirt that finishes just above the floor.


Best princess dress

Laurie Lace Bardot Mesh Bridal Dress Ivory



We love a lace wedding dress but the ruched tulle around the neckline takes this piece to a whole other level. Plus, it’s a great option for the bride who doesn’t want a train.


Best train dress

Rebecca Chantilly Lace Bridal Dress Ivory



The only thing better than one type of lace is two. The Rebecca gown combines delicate eyelash lace with dobby mesh which turns into a divine train. Oh, and don’t even get us started on those buttons down the back, k?


Best summer dress

Kate Floral Embroidered Bridal Dress Ivory



The Kate dress offers delicate draping in the skirt, falling into natural pleats, while the intricate floral beading starts on the bodice and works its way down through the entire skirt for a wholly breathtaking finish. 


Best midi dress

Dora Bridal Embellished Midi Dress Ivory



Granted, most of the dresses in this edit have been longer styles, but we wanted to include a nod to the modern bride with this schmick midi option. 


Best for the untraditional dress

Naomi Bridal Embellished Cape Maxi Dress Ivory



Last but not least is this embellished cape maxi which, tbh, sounds as heavenly as it looks. It’s also kinda perf for winter weddings, offering an extra layer of glam goodness.
