Hi babes! You know how much I love wedding dresses, even though I’ve been married for 2 years, I still have a soft spot for bridal fashion. This time we’ll discover together the beautiful AW Bridal wedding dresses.
AW Bridal* offers beautiful yet affordable gowns, bridesmaid dresses and wedding guest dresses. They also have accessories such as tiaras, wedding sashes & headpieces, along with personalized ceremony decor items. Their bridal dresses feature different silhouettes, mostly A line, sheath and ball gown. The majority of the gowns are made of tulle but you can also find some in lace, organza and satin, or combinations of them.
AW Bridal designs always aim to be as flattering as possible, after all, the goal of any bride is looking a their best in one of the most important days of her life. A-line dresses are my favourite, and they make some gorgeous, ethereal, princessy gowns to die for. Tulle bodices are insanely gorgeous as you can see how the fabric wraps up your figure. So in that sense, AW Bridal designs remind me a little bit to David’s Bridal. They’re classic, elegant, but always including trends here and there.
Speaking of trends, the one of mixing sheer tulle or mesh panels with lace appliqués is not going everywhere, and AW Bridal knows it. They have some amazing bodice appliqué dresses, perfectly balancing romantic and sensual. Many of them are sleeveless but you can also find a some with the same technique applied to the sleeves. The latter is a personal favourite, as some of you might remember from my own wedding dress.
SHEATH & MERMAID DRESSES
Their sheath, mermaid and column designs are equally gorgeous. On my top picks is the Esther dress, a stunning vintage-looking, fully-embellished sheath gown. The level of detail in this dress makes it almost impossible to believe it’s only $400 (at the time of writing this).
Another beautiful sheath dress is the Lottie dress. For some reason, the intricate pattern that covers all the dress makes me think of art-deco pieces and very sutble 30’s flapper influence. The sweep train is gorgeous and a reminder that this dress is far from being simple. Perfect for the girl who doesn’t want heave embellishments.
Last but not least, I also checked AW Bridal accessories and found many lovely pieces, but my favourites by far were the hair accessories and the sashes. Both of these sections were filled with romantic and luxurious details such as pearls, flowers, rhinestones and satin textures.
Funnily enough, I found AW Bridal’s version of my rose gold tiara. If you’re unsure about tiaras I’d say go for it. I thought it was going to be too much at the beginning, yet I still ordered it. It was one of the best decisions I took, wedding-wise. It complimented the look perfectly, as I had some small rose gold touches (my engagement ring and wedding band, as well as my shoes). Tiaras look equally beautiful but less formal with loose, wavy hair.
All in all, if your budget doesn’t get you a Vera Wang, don’t panic. AW Bridal will still make you look like a million dollars for an affordable price. Which was your favourite item?
