Calling all brides -to-be.
I know it’s only the end of January but if you’re getting married this summer, and you’re on a budget, now is the time to start planning.
Brides have an increasing number of budget options. Monsoonwas always the ‘High Street Go To’ for wedding dresses under £250 but now French Connection’s 2019 bridal collection has become a strong contender. Collectively, they beg the question, “why spend three months wages on one single gown”.
Those looking for a traditional dress for their upcoming nuptials might find the Emilina dress appealing. With lace sleeves and a full-skirt, it’s an update on the Palermo gown, which was a bestseller from the retailer’s 2018 collection. While there are no cupcake gowns this season, there is a slick column dress and a lace midi-dress with a fluted skirt and pockets that feel very contemporary.
Bridesmaid aren’t forgotten either. In sorbet shades of raspberry, strawberry and lemon, this micro-range is designed to complement the bridal wear. Each dress has hero details such as floral embroidery, lace or bursts of beads.
After such a positive reaction from customers towards their debut bridal collection last year, launching a second capsule for 2019 was a no brainer.. The essence of the collection retains its modern feminine French Connection identity, evolving the most popular designs.
The Palermo dress from 2018 was a bestseller, for the customer who loves intricate hand-embellishment and a classic bridal shape. But the beautiful Emelina dress for 2019 brings a new element to this timeless design.
The latest collection launches on the 18th of February, but keen brides-to-be can pre-order from FC’s ‘The wedding Shop’ online from the 1st of February.
