Every so often I come across a designers work that I love, admire and if my bank balance allowed, had all their gowns in my wardrobe! This time round I have stumbled across a few who's work I think reflects the modern day bride and shows that theres no hard and fast rules when it comes to wedding attire.
For a chic looks with a dose of glamour, One Day is the designer for you. Geared toward the bride who wants something "a little less bridal, a little more modern," One Day steers clear of the standard bridal look, but still remains wedding-day appropriate.

DRAMA, DRAMA, DRAMA!! My new found designer that i stumbled across a few weeks ago! With a range of designs to choose from, these are ideal for the woman looking to make a statement on the big day. Alternatively, the dresses can be worn for other occasions if you want to stand out from the crowd.
Downtown NYC based designer Meredith Stoecklein is all about keeping things simple, easy-to-wear and inspired by the key women in her life. With various styles and silhouettes to pick from, each look speaks to a different woman and celebration.
Sophie et Viola
With most bridal gowns chock-full of lace, embroidery, beading and appliqué, there usually isn't much options for the minimalist bride who wants to keep it simple and low key. Sophie et Viola creates the wow factor that every bride requires, but with a modernist slant, focusing on sleek, clean, standout silhouettes without the fuss. Mix and match or create your own bespoke look, there is something for everyone.
One of my favourite designers. There is nothing simple about this collection! Ashi Studio has a keen eye for innovative, architectural dramatic silhouettes and intricate embroideries. Definitely geared towards those that like to try something different.

Focused on real women's bodies with vintage inspiration, there is a wide range of well-priced options to choose from. Ideal for those seeking an effortless look without being restricted to a particular garment.
