When all the research shows that young couples in particular would rather spend their money on an affordable wedding and create happy memories from unique experiences, instead of splurging on expensive dresses and suits, the news that Topshop has launched a bridal collection could not have come at a better time.
The Topshop Bridal Collection will go on sale from Thursday 13th April and will be available instore and online. The collection is based on five key wedding dresses that are available in different lengths and colours. These are two floor-length gowns, two vintage-inspired midi dresses and one shorter dress made from tulle.
The Topshop Bridal Collection is said to target the young, modern bride who shuns tradition and wants a more carefree and relaxed wedding. The dresses on offer could be worn in any setting according to the press release, including “a relaxed wedding on the beach, a chic city ceremony, a church in the countryside or a second dress for the celebrations.”
There are limited edition dresses in the collection and sizes start from 4 and go up to 16. Prices for the wedding dresses range from £350 to £795.
As for bridesmaid’s dresses, there are 25 different styles that come in modern and more traditional styles in a range of colours. Bridesmaid’s dresses range from £85 to £245.
The five main wedding dresses are a real mixture of styles, from the two floor-length gowns in a satin fabric that drape beautifully over the body, to the vintage style embellished pencil midi dress and the midi cutwork Bardot dress. The shorter wedding dress is based on a prom-style and uses delicate tulle fabric for the fuller skirt.
The bridesmaid’s dresses come in a range of different styles that can be mixed and matched with any of the five main wedding gowns. There are dresses that are strapless, tie-shoulder, cowl necks, slip-type dresses, cap sleeves, halter-neck, and much more.
The gowns and dresses are adorned with a variety of embellishments too, from silk organza, tulle, delicate pearls, silver thread, draped lace, floral appliqués, ruffles and pastel flower prints.
Silhouettes that flatter every shape and size are on offer, from sweeping gowns that touch the floor, tiered layers, bias cut, long trains, peplums and structured busts.
There is a great range of colours also, from soft pastel pinks, creams and dusty blues, to brighter shades such as navy and full on florals.
As well as the dresses for brides and bridesmaids, Topshop Bridal Collection are also offering a carefully edited selection of shoes for the big day, all of them costing £79. There are also lingerie and hair accessories available.
