New Collection: Practical Romantics

Practical Romantics is our new capsule collection for brides who want to pass on a big, flashy princess-style wedding gown that will make you feel uncomfortable and unnatural. Instead, opt for one of our Practical Romantics wedding gowns that will make you feel comfortable and absolutely gorgeous. What our dresses are missing in puffy skirts and extra-long trains, they more than make up for in beautiful simplicity.  They are each designed to be flattering while enhancing your natural beauty for your wedding day.

Inspired by our popular Carbonne dress, Skye features the same embroidered brodierie anglaise georgette, with an open back and loose elbow length sleeves.  The plunge neckline is softened by the scalloped edges of the lace.  The hem, neckline and sleeve edge are finished with a scalloped edge. Skye is also fully lined in nude stretch silk satin which accentuates the embroidery patterns in the lace while giving full coverage.  We love that the Skye dress could just as easily be worn by a beach bride or a city bride.

The Paradise dress a divinely light and flowing dress thats rich in detail while still feeling like a simple wedding dress. A fitted bodice with scooped neckline grows into a loose bias cut skirt so you can comfortably dance the night away. Lined in stretch silk satin to sit smoothly against the body and feel like your dress is giving you a hug.  Paradise would work for a relaxed garden wedding or just as well for a city reception depending on how you choose to style it.

Dreamy Maia comes in super soft stretch floral lace which gently hugs your curves, creating a stunning silhouette. The soft V neckline comes on a fitted bodice & waist, falling out below the knee into a small puddle train. The sleeves are fitted, then dramatically flare out from elbow to wrist. The neckline, cuffs and hem are all finished with a soft tulle binding for a luxury finish. Maia is unlined and comes with a bias cut silk crepe de chine slip in either nude or ivory.

With romantic off the shoulder sleeves and a full 2 tiered skirt for dancing, Aroha is perfect for laid back summer brides.  The light weight embroidered georgette is fully lined in stretch silk satin which feels incredible against your skin.  This style is fitted through the bust and waist then flows into a full skirt. Elasticated arms keep the off-shoulder neckline perfectly in place.  You can wear a strapless bra with this dress. 

The Prosper dress a divinely draping, 70s inspired wedding gown that is striking and theatrical, but also light and flowing in it's simplicity. The stunning vintage inspired dress has intricate lace detailing on the sleeve, waist and skirt, with a train that falls softly behind you. It's show stopping, but also playful and carefree. We imagined this gown being worn onstage by Stevie Nicks  or walking down the daisy peppered steps of an ancient castle.

A stunning halterneck wedding gown with showstopping back detail, Marama will ensure that all eyes are on you! Its fitted at the bust and nipped in at the waist for a flattering silhouette then flares out at the knee into a small puddle train.
