The ‘Must Have’ Bridal Silhouette


Polka Bridal Press Jan 16GLAMOROUS weddings are back and the elegant fishtail dress is here to stay.

Whether tightly fitted with a structured drop train, or dainty and feminine, this flattering style can be beautifully tailored to suit many a figure and the timelessness and versatility of this style means that each Bride can make this silhouette their own.

Off-white colouring works beautifully with rustic weddings and adding elegant sleeve detail will soften the on-occasion structured appearance of this shape.

A delicate Chantilly lace works perfectly on longer sleeves and a three quarter length cut or scalloped edge will add a flattering finish.

A more classic approach would use silk or satin alongside the structured silhouette. This look is perfect for a more slender frame and looks beautiful with an open-back or tiny pearl-embellished straps.

For the ultimate contemporary touch, opt for feather or crystal detail to add another level of glamour. A long, floor-length veil will frame your look beautifully and add a timeless twist.
