Frothy skirts

There is nothing even remotely meringue-like about the new crop of frothy skirts. Naeem Khan masters this look by combining a full layered tulle skirt with a super-sexy longline fitted bodice, letting the bride sway those hips.

Shades of grey: Alternatives to white have never looked so glamorous – this on-trend gown by Marco & Maria is in a flattering blue-grey hue and has a bow neck with bold chain detailing

Shades of grey

The talented Tenerife duo Marco & Maria capture two trends – the bow neck and the blue-grey hue – with this sophisticated gown. Bold chain detailing gives this feminine style a bold edge.

Cocktail glamour: Justin Alexander channels 1930s Hollywood elegance with this free flowing gown that pares back to elegant lines and shimmering silk. And we love the flattering neckline

Cocktail glamour

Unstructured slimline looks cut a dash for brides who want 1930s cocktail-hour elegance. The flattering neckline and luxurious silk of this gown by New York designer Justin Alexander ramp up the wedding glamour.

Bold belts: a clever take on 1960s style, this YolanCris gown also adds a sliken sash and is worn low on the hips

Bold belts

Belts are cropping up everywhere – ranging from wide and waist-cinching to slimline in crystal, pearl and metal. We love this YolanCris chain style. A clever take on the 1960s look, and worn low on the hips, it is interwoven with a silken sash.

Gold standard

Texture is big, as is the trend for evening-style gowns with sparkle – and Ruth Milliam’s gown has both. Featuring a super-long fitted and beaded gold bodice with plunge neck, it also has a frivolous ruffled skirt to take you from ceremony to dance floor.

Cape crusade

Cover-ups – from capes to stoles – are a key 2017 bridal trend. For a super-simple take on the look, we love Zaeem Jamal’s elegant long silk design worn here over a plunge-neck mini. Just the thing for the ceremony, it creates a soft train effect and would also be a great honeymoon piece.
