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.
