Classic Bride

Get the Look: Classic Bride


Modern, edgy or casual looks can be gorgeous, fun options for wedding styles, but nothing really beats a classic bride.

A timeless, princess shaped gown like this stunning dress from Elie Saab, is the perfect centerpiece for this luxurious look. Add a sheer veil to emphasize the traditional feel and then accessorise with other classic items for a cohesive ensemble.

An elegant drop gold and pearl earring is simply stunning, and nothing is more classic than iconic Chanel No. 5 fragrance to help capture the essence of the look.

When it comes to bridal heels, Manolo Blahnik is one of the go-to brands. This elegant pump with a covered toe is a fitting choice and the crystal blue-encrusted embellishment is a nice subtle nod to another wedding tradition.

Adding to the ‘something blue’ touches, you could opt for a soft blue bridesmaid dress like this long, silk taffeta Monique Lhuillier gown which features an asymmetrical twist on a classic style. A garter, an old tradition in itself, is a sweet addition that can also feature this hue.

When it comes to other wedding features it’s best to keep the classic theme going too. For florals you don’t want anything overly bright - think English roses, blush nudes and ranunculus. A minimalist white tiered tower cake is very traditional and eye-catching, and a special wedding guest book with smart type font is a lovely keepsake to help capture the overall theme for the day.
