    Traditional high street wedding dresses

    For the traditional brides, there’s gorgeous fishtails and caped sleeves gowns from the likes of Whistles and Monsoon. While for the vintage lovers and soon-to-be boho brides, Monsoon and ASOS have all your embellished and floaty lace dreams covered.

    Alternative high street wedding dresses

    And for something altogether more contemporary then some of our favourite high street stores, French Connection and Whistles, have lust-worthy collections to make you stand out on the aisle. Think off-the-shoulder lace, asymmetric necklines, on-trend midi dresses and minimalist silk slips, which are exactly what the modern stylish bride needs for the new season.

    We’re also loving RIXO’s first foray into bridalwear, including cute mini dress, perfect if you’re getting married at the registry office. It adds a retro touch to proceedings and you’ll be able to wear it again.

    High street wedding dresses for every shape

    As well as all of these, we’ve found dresses to suit all shapes and heights – from bias-cut silk dresses to full-skirted traditional styles. Not keen on your arms? There are some great long-sleeved wedding gowns that will solve your bridal dilemmas. Want your waist to stand out? Try a cinched style with an embellished belt. Petite figures will suit all the lovely ruffle dresses that are so in at the moment too.
