Classic Designer Wedding Dresses with a Modern Flair

Some classic wedding gown designs have leapt back into fashion and we love it! Traditional elements in a modern twist have become a trend in wedding dresses in 2017.

And seeing as traditional-with-a-twist is what the brides-to-be are after, here are a few blends to help you realise your perfect combination –a combination second to you and the groom of course.

Pockets! Pockets! Pockets!
You had me at “pockets”.  Timeless design elements take on a whole new meaning when paired with a simple pocket.

The Primura design is simple, elegant and refined: a simple high-waisted, sweetheart bodice and long satin skirt with applique detailing. It doesn’t get much more classically graceful than that, right? Wrong, the only way to improve on what is otherwise perfection is POCKETS! It gives an edge to the by-the-book design. And we like a little bit of edge to our couture wedding dresses.

The Plaza’s dropped neckline and flared skirt is stunning too. But when you add the pocket you get the most relaxed bride with hands so warm, feet not at all cold. She’s standing there looking incredibly pretty and composed.

Veils and Long Trains

This is a very traditional style that seems to be making a comeback with young brides. Wedding dress designers have embraced the combination and added their own variations. The pairing of the two may be traditional but the way it is being interpreted is not.

As seen with Provonias’ Amanda wedding dress, the combination is undeniably beautiful. It is structured and minimalistic and sports a small satin bow below the sweetheart neckline. The veil falls in line with the train and geometric line detailing creates a focal point and emphasises movement.

The Plunge

We’re not talking about taking the plunge of getting married – we’re talking plunging dresses. Classic designs like the A-line tulle of the Prala (on the left of the picture) are reminiscent of traditional couture wedding gowns. However, the moment she turns around – BAM: the plunge! It accentuates the length of her torso and the femininity of her back.
