So, if you’re looking for amazing modern wedding dresses, then look no further! We have three stunning new Viva Bride dresses to reveal. There’s glamorous Sophiella, romantic and playful Camellia and drop dread gorgeous Erika. The only problem is which one to choose…

 

Modern Wedding Dresses - Camellia Camellia, available in sizes 8 to 26

 

It’s a love affair

Camellia is a flattering blush-coloured ball gown with stunning lace detailing from the bodice all the way down to the beautiful lace hem. It’s also a classic silhouette that looks great on everyone, whatever your shape, as it covers the lower body and draws attention to your waist.

Layers of lace

The sweetheart bodice, with its stylish modern lace, is just divine. The floral lace has been layered up for an extra luxurious feel and is also scattered prettily down the skirt. To keep the look playful and fun, wear it with your hair styled in loose waves and pinned with our gorgeous Luna comb.

The perfect fit

Sumptuous ribbon lacing at the back means that this bodice will hug your curves to perfection. The combination of fitted bodice and voluminous skirt is also designed to give you the perfect nipped in waist!

Smart design

And, if you do need any alterations, the lace appliques on the bodice can be unpicked at the side seams to make changes super easy. Yes, we're tried to think of everything!

A modern masterpiece

The ravishing floral hem is the pièce de résistance of this stunning dress and will trail seductively behind you as you glide down the aisle. Double up on our 153 and 163 underskirts for the perfect modern princess look. And, if you do still need a length alteration, we’ve designed the lace hem so it can be removed and reattached quickly and easily.

Daytime style

Glamour puss

The stand-out feature is the glamorous romantic lace, which covers the entire bodice from the seductive illusion straps to the fitted waist and hip lines. There’s also an on-trend plunging neckline complete with small illusion insert, so it’s just the right side of revealing.

Quality and craftsmanship

Look closely and you’ll see the exquisite craftsmanship that has gone into the bodice. The intricate lace is embellished with hundreds of beautiful beads and glittering crystals, which look amazing over the soft champagne-coloured lining.

The star of the show

The wonderful detailing continues at the back, which is cut attractively low for a sexy and playful look. There’s also pretty ruching across the hips, which will craftily hide any lumps and bumps!

Here we’ve styled it with our regal Aurelia tiara and some sparkly statement earrings to really up the wow factor.
