A blushing beauty

Contemporary bridal

The shimmering fabric needs little embellishment, so we’ve simply added a touch of beading to the striking, catwalk-style double straps.

Strike a pose

Turn around and you’ll reveal the straps in all their glory. It’s an on-trend, contemporary style that’s perfect for the modern princess. A row of eye-catching crystal buttons completes the look. We think this dress looks amazing with a little extra sparkle too, so try it with our stylish Estella belt and our princess-worthy Regency tiara.

Bold and beautiful

The luxurious Mikado fabric is perfect for a show-stopping ball gown skirt and the box pleats here are an elegant way to add fullness. We recommend wearing this with our 163 underskirt too, for maximum volume. And, if you love princess wedding dresses in luxurious Mikado, we think you’ll like Porsha and Delancey too.

A touch of detail

Princess wedding dresses can also look amazing with a little more embellishment and Phillipa is the perfect example. The subtle lace detailing here works beautifully with the crisp Mikado fabric to create a look that’s totally contemporary.

Regal style

If you loved Meghan Markle’s gorgeous wedding gown them you’ll love this super flattering boat neckline too. It’s an on-trend look that also provides plenty of stylish coverage.

Understated elegance

The layers of embroidered and Chantilly floral lace add subtle but understated detail to the stylish bodice.

On-trend design

The sexy low back is another key trend that’s offset by the high neckline at the front, giving brides who want a little coverage the best of both worlds.

Sleek lines

The detailing continues down the waist before making way for the glossy Mikado fabric, which flares out beautifully to the floor, creating a magnificent silhouette.

Simple accessories

Try this dress with our beaded Nova belt for a little extra shimmer. It also looks amazing with our London veil, covered with a scattering of chic appliqués. If you’re looking for more princess wedding dresses with subtle detailing, take a look at Georgia too. We think you’ll like it!

A timeless classic

If you’ve been daydreaming about the perfect princess wedding dresses, then Dawson probably comes pretty close! A beautiful ball gown shape, we love the contrast between the embellished bodice and the sweeping satin skirt. It also comes in both ivory and a subtle shade of oyster, so you really will be spoilt for choice!

Exquisite embellishment

The intricate lace on the bodice is embellished with just the right amount of understated sparkle. It also forms pretty cap sleeves over the shoulders, which are super flattering.

Lace detailing

Look closely and you’ll see that the sweetheart bodice has been overlaid by exquisite embroidered lace.

Delicate cap sleeves

The pretty sleeves also delicately frame the open back and the attractive row of stylish covered buttons, giving just enough soft coverage.

Added extras

When it comes to styling princess wedding dresses, you can never have too much sparkle! We think Dawson looks perfectly pretty with our Estella belt and a pretty Deco comb, securing our simple Willa veil.

Full volume

The striking skirt is made from rich, flared satin, which has a stunning sheen. The wide pleats add extra volume and you can also wear this with our 163 underskirt for even more bounce. And, if you think the bigger the better when it comes to skirts, make sure you take a look at Tara, Delancey and Aviana too.

Shimmer and shine

Finally, we have Estelle, a super flattering A-line style. The beautifully pleated bodice is covered in soft tulle and has been lined with organza for a subtle extra shimmer. It’s just divine!

Tumbling appliques

We love the stunning lace appliqués that fall beautifully down the soft skirt. They perfectly highlight the waistline and show the skirt off to the full. This traditional sweetheart bodice is also essential for creating that dreamy princess look.

Figure-flattering details

At the back, there’s contemporary lacing in rich satin ribbon. This classic feature is pure elegance and also ensure the bodice fits like a dream.

Fit for a princess

Take in the full silhouette and you’ll see that Estelle is the epitome of classic princess style - feminine, flattering and totally captivating. Wear this with our 163 underskirt to give the skirt a little more majesty and volume.

So unique

There are so many ways to style this versatile design. Here we’ve added one of our charming lace jackets and a glittering belt to highlight your waistline. You could also wear it with our pretty, detachable Andi straps for a totally different look. And, if you’d like to see more strapless princess wedding dresses, then you might like Camellia, Bethanie and Leanne too.
