Bringing the best of 1920s glamour, this dress has a decidedly vintage feel with the angular chevron pattern and gorgeous gold beading and sequins.
Overlaid with delicate tulle, this traditional sweetheart-neckline dress is given a fresh face with some glittering bead embroidery.
The metallic gold highlights on this ivory dress give a subtle timeless elegance to a whimsical and feminine gown.
No need to adjust your screen, this gown is actually green. Elizabeth Taylor was a fan of coloured dresses, wearing green, yellow and purple at three of her weddings. Taking on the pastel trend, this shade is ideal for a spring or summer wedding and a bride with a bold sense of style.
This sleek, simple cut has an Edwardian feel, but the beaded tulle overlay gives the capped shoulders and high neckline a new, modernised aesthetic.
