Planning a wedding may be stressful. But if there’s anything about it that excites blushing brides-to-be, it has to be picking the wedding gown. As a little girl, you may already have made up your mind about the design even before you met the man you wanted to spend the rest of your life with.
But saying yes to the perfect dress may actually be a tougher box to tick off for some ladies. Certain classy, vintage wedding gowns that you’ve always dreamed won’t suit all body types, after all. Not that we’re pressuring you to diet hard and fast, but you can’t expect anything less from the trendier styles, right?
This is why choosing the right designer is very important. Aside from getting someone who can deliver your dress the way you want it in respect to your body type, deciding to work with bridal experts who would go to extreme lengths makes counting the days leading up to your big day extra special.
Although going to a local bridal gown boutique is the most convenient, it’s hard not to fancy having our gowns made from talented designers based abroad. So, we listed down bridal gown designers, who can create the wedding gown to give you that bridal glow. They may not be as popular as Vera Wang, Monique Lhuillier, or Marchesa but they are as professional. And their creations? Equally stunning. Here’s more.
Michael Cinco is a Filipino designer, who launched his atelier in Dubai. Since 2003, he has been dressing Arab royalty and upscale clients in the Middle East with a mark of his own extravagance. And if his couture designs and Swarovski-laden gowns on celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce, Rihanna, and Lady Gaga can take the spotlight on Hollywood stage and red carpets by storm, imagine the effect his opulent princess gowns and mermaid dresses can do at your wedding.
Blushing brides-to-be who are more into Bohemian chic fashion will find their hero in Alice Temperley, the British designer who founded her brand one year after graduating college in 2000. But she only launched her bridal collection of ethereal and romantic bridal gown silhouettes two years later. True to her British roots, Temperley is known for creating modern bohemian looks that is both feminine and effortless.
For those who didn’t know that Delpozo’s Creative Director Josep Font actually designs wedding gowns, your prayers have just been answered. He has been doing it in the last two years, and fashion girls all over the world have been coveting his creations for their extraordinary colour, volume, and silhouette. His training in architecture and couture translates well in bridal collections made with soft silk tulles, replete with innovative appliqués. You may find his designs at prestigious retailers such as Lane Crawford in Hong Kong.
When haute couturier Viktor & Rolf launched a made-to-order collection for the aisle last year, the wedding industry was abuzz. And they can’t be faulted. Its latest bridal collection for Spring/Summer 2018 simply wowed with a well-rounded range of 21-piece avant-garde look, which include two mini length, flirty dresses that embodied the same forward thinking that the French fashion house had been known for. We won’t mind getting married in a Viktor & Rolf bridal jumpsuit at any given day, if you ask us. Our favourite? The simple yet regal, Watteau train gown.
The German design duo Alexandra Fischer-Roehler and Johanna Kühl behind Kaviar Gauche may have been designing wedding gowns since 2009. But we’re as in love with their young, fresh perspective now as we were. Their simple yet regal designs reflects the brand’s deep grasp of what modern brides want on her special day. So, if you’re looking for details that feel unexpected, feminine and undeniably wearable (think long-sleeved or halter laced tops, tulle overskirts, and modern Victorian dresses), check out Kaviar Gauche.
