Happy Friday friends! TGIF, right? Right! And we’re taking the opportunity to get you all revved up for the weekend with a bout of shopping (we’re click and buy friendly here, folks!) or if you wish, just the opportunity to simply swoon over some damn good looking gowns for as long as you so shall wish.
Now, as you may well have seen, we have recently gone all out in the fashion department for the women who want to turn a few heads on their big day. There’s 20 of Our Fave Short But Sweet Gowns and 20 Bridal Gowns With Smokin’ Statement Necklines (yes, it’s a mouthful, but gawd it’s a goodie guys) and now we are coming in hot with 20 of our favourite 90s style gowns worth wearing. So go on, dive in. They speak for themselves and provide some serious food for thought, even if you lived through this epic era the first time round.
I mean, the options are endless, but what speaks the loudest is the jaw-dropping fabrics (luxe silks for the win!), necklines and sleeves (or lack thereof) that nod to the nineties without the OTT trimmings (or making the mistake of combining all of these elements together). The result? A much cooler take on the trend. So look for one-shoulder styles, cut-outs (hi, Prea James), sleeves (the puffier, the better, thank you Karen Willis Holmes), sheer overlays (like the Alca Line Bride number) and slip dresses for days (Lilia Cass and Fiona Claire we’re looking at you).
So if you like what you see, lock in a time with your local boutique. When it comes to gowns (and everything, really) we do love to first and foremost support local, so for Sydney lasses, head into some of our faves, Love Marie Bridal Boutique and Hope x Page (don’t miss some epic real weddings linked to Hope X Page’s Directory listing here), if you’re in ACT, Mrs Fray is for you and if you’re in South Australia, check out The Bride Lab.
Finally, once you’re done scrolling (and swooning) over the dresses below, head on over to 20 Cool Veils and Capes for Your Wedding Day to get some serious ideas on how to accessorise them.
