The story behind the Carbonne Dress

Happy Friday everyone!!  September has been really busy so far at Francis Bridal with a feature from Love My Dress and lots of lovely ladies wanting to try our dresses! We are now booked out until October, so please get in touch to book your space, we don't want anyone to miss out!

We've also just managed to bring a new London based supplier on board to make your gorgeous wedding dresses and I am so thrilled that we have Nailya and her amazing team working with us. We go back 9 years and she works with the best in the business and will ensure that all our Francis Bridal wedding dresses are made to perfection. October is also shaping up to be a busy month with a trunk show at Rock the Frock Bridal who are located in Battlesbridge in Essex. This would be a great option for dress lovers who are located further to the East!

Today, we thought we’d focus on a beauty of a dress from our summer collection that our ladies adore. A true rock star of a wedding dress, Carbonne is just captivating. With a softly plunging neckline and gently gathered skirt, she's boho maxi bridal gown dreaminess personified!

The inspiration came from all those glamourous iconic 70's babes who just always look like they are totally rocking it and in their own way.

The beautiful embroidered chiffon fabric is the true star in this wedding dress. Because the fabric is so stunning, we've kept the Carbonne design simple to let the embroidery do the talking. Its lined in nude stretch silk satin to keep the dress light and to highlight the beautiful patterns in the embroidery.

Sometimes its nice to have a wedding dress with sleeves, even better when they are sleeves like these:
