He’s gone down on one knee and has popped the question – and your answer? Is it a difficult decision? Of course not! You can already picture yourself at the altar in a beautiful bridal gown. Now the picture is a bit out of focus so you can’t see the dress in detail but you know it’s going to be the most perfect of all bridal dresses. You start the shopping marathon to find the perfect dress and find that they are all looking lovely. Well here from the International bridal Fashion Fair at the white Gallery are a few choices to confuse you even more:
As the name suggests, these gowns are big and glamorous, and are taking no chances that they will not be noticed or discovered. Bodices are fitted, sleeveless and beaded whilst skirts are full and multi layered. Long satin gloves add to the Hollywood glamour. Colours are white, champagne and ivory, but they also have pale pink and their signature glamorous and provocative red.
Not for the faint hearted but elegant swooning is allowed.
What about shoes – well Rachel Simpson’s new Noir collection would complement a Hollywood Dream gown as it is inspired by the decadence of vintage Hollywood. The Amarante shoe with its red roses and black lace platform would be perfect for the red Theodora gown
Pepe Botella’s collection is called “White Moon” with Spanish top model Marta Espanol as the face of the collection. Here you see ethereal designs in chiffon, soft ruffles, and drapes creating flowing dresses with a touch of the Spanish influence. Crystal detailing glitter like white stars, tussah silk and diamond satin create moonlight shadows and jacquard, lace and picots in a palette of whites add depth.
Sigh -You’ll need your bridegroom’s hand to stop you floating away.
For shoes Rainbow Club’s Rainbow Couture range provides simple elegant satin shoes with pleating and diamante detailing.
Johanna’s collection is inspired by different fashion eras. From the 1950’s era her dresses take the smooth bodices over the hips with full Parisienne skirts. Light pink ribbon round the waist adds a touch of colour. The 1930’s look concentrates on the back detailing, keeping the body lean with fabrics in velvet and delicate diamante details. The 1920’s brings fun with lace, feathers and fringing.
Shoes – Rachel Simpson’s boot shoe Etienne (Noir collection) with its art deco fan design on the side would set the 1930’s look.

The 2011 collection is inspired by the myth of Atlantis. Mother of pearl and crystals detailing, sea foam of frothy tulle and draped fluid silhouettes are some of the looks which help create the modern day interpretation of the Atlantis myth. The colour palette is light from salt white to mother of pearl.
