If yesterday’s post on trends for 2012 got you excited about your gown shopping, then today’s post should have you literally snapping out your credit card! Now we all know that twice a year (July and December), the world goes on sale. And none more so than one of my favourite online stores, Net-A-Porter.com. I just so happened to have a peek at their wedding sale and it is amazing! I might not be getting married at the moment but even I feel like buying a couple (haha!). Here are my favourite picks from the lot and I’ve taken the liberty of roughly converting the prices to USD:
Simple, sleek and the ruffle gives it that classic Marchesa touch. If you’re not familiar with the brand Marchesa (my fave brand atm), it’s worn by many A-list celebs and known for their detailing and feminine designs. Click here to view.
Price: USD 2560
Vivienne Westwood Gold Label
Remember when SJP donned this in the first Sex and the City movie? I swear this is a similar version to the one she wore! Chic, glam and stylish – how can you not love this gown? And its price tag…
Price: USD 1768
For the traditional bride, this Lela Rose gown is a great option. You can’t see it in the pic above but there is an embroidered floral pattern on the dress that is subtle but gives it an added shimmer up close.
Price: USD 3434
Temperley London (1)
If you’ve been addicted watching Downton Abbey like me, then this number might just remind you of the hit show (plus Mathew and Mary). This ivory stretch-silk and tulle gown will ensure you’re the perfect vintage bride. And who could say no to Temperley!
Price: USD 2375
Temperley London (2)
Do me a favour and click on the link to check out this gown up close because it wins on the detailing. Embellished with crystals, this silk chiffon gown is said to flatter any silhouette.
Price: USD 1100
A little more pricey than the rest, to me this gown is not only flattering to the figure but I love the layers and raw edging used to give it that fashionista touch.
Price: USD 3200
This crepe and ruched chiffon gown is so simple yet so chic! For some reason I envision a bride who’s a career woman wearing this (don’t ask me why!). Add some jewelry to the mix and I think you have an extremely elegant gown. The price is also really reasonable if I may say…
Price: USD 1421
A little bit of a bohemian, chilled-out vibe to this silk-chiffon skirt and top by the Wu man. Great if you’re having that destination wedding by the sea or in some beautiful castle in the South of France… ok, daydreaming!
Price: USD 1215
I love Halston full stop. Sexy, classic and feminine at the same time, this gown will add a touch of glamour to any bride. And it’s a steal (again, if you ask me!)
Price: USD 485
Hard to pick just one, right? x
