How to choose a wedding dress with the wow-factor

How to choose a wedding dress with the wow-factor Q – I’m looking for a fashion-forward dress that will wow our guests. Do you have any suggestions?

"Every bride has their own interpretation of the perfect gown, but there are some who are searching for a fashion-forward design that will leave their guests in awe. Here at TDR Bridal, we are all about standing out from the crowd and helping you find something that you never would have imaged yourself in but represents you perfectly. It’s that moment when you step out of your comfort zone that amazing things can happen, however, this doesn’t necessarily mean you need to have the most extravagant and bold dress. In fact, sometimes it’s quite the opposite. This is your chance to look and feel confident and when a bride feels secure, she will ooze style and sass. While micro weddings and sleek, simple looks are on the rise, there are still so many brides-to-be desperate to express their adventurous side with sparkle and colour.

"The biggest trend at the moment is sleeves. These are the perfect way to add personality to your gown and work well with a range of styles. Puff sleeves are bang on trend with off-the-shoulder versions making a huge comeback. We’re not saying Princess Diana here, but it’s the modern-day equivalent.

"Necklines are becoming a predictable trend in 2021, with an increase in higher, more demure styles. The opposite of that is a very low V neck, almost to the waistline, which if done correctly can be utterly stunning. The sharp, square neckline is also becoming hugely popular in bridal, flattering the collarbones and shoulders and it works with heavy satin, full lace and simplistic crepe.

"We have seen an influx in the number of brides opting for a cape rather than a veil. Visually capes are a statement piece that add extra coverage, a dramatic train and create two looks.

"If you have had to postpone your 2020 wedding, think of this as an opportunity to express yourself even more with the latest fashion-forward trends. Remember your style must guide you towards your perfect dress, no matter what is currently on-trend, be you and you’re sure to wow your guests."
