I have just been to Buckingham Palace
to see the wonderful exhibition of the Queen’s dresses throughout her reign,
charting significant events in her life and the nation’s history. The magnificence of her wedding dress and coronation
dress is just incredible and the beading takes your breath away.
If you are planning your forthcoming
wedding one of the most important and exciting parts of the process is looking
at, and trying on, wedding dresses. My advice is to always keep the
design simple and flattering to your figure, the fabric shouldn’t be too heavy
and the dress should not be figure hugging. Don’t forget that walking
down the aisle is a most beautiful moment for any bride and her dress, but you
are then going to have to stand for photographs and during the reception you
will sit down for dinner and then move around the dancefloor with the lightness
of a fairy.
A top designer will advise you on
what will work best for you and your particular wedding style and theme, so
choose wisely and visit at least three before making your final decision.
Bespoke is always best, however if your figure is great but your budget not so
then do look online for vintage or pre-worn items.
The Queen’s wedding gown, 1947 by Sir
Norman Hartnell. Duchesse silk satin, white seed pearls, silver thread,
sparkling crystal and transparent appliqué tulle embroidery, silk tulle veil.
