This time last year we were all still reeling from watching Kate and William tie the knot. The whole country was swept along in the preparations and the big day itself. Weddings tend to do that to people, a normally reserved and unromantic soul can be turned into a sobbing wreck when two people make that ultimate commitment to one another and it doesn’t matter if you’re royal, famous, or neither, we all love a wedding.

Recently Kate Smith and Frazer Seed, a lovely couple from Preston in Lancashire, were the first couple to get married on a British beach in a Wedding Chapel/Beach Hut. They married on a Bournemouth beach on the 27th April and not only were they surrounded by friends, thousands of ITV’s Daybreak viewers also tuned in to watch.

So the 2012 wedding season has officially begun. If you have been invited to one this summer or maybe you have a whole summer of weddings to look forward to, then you are going to need a dress and this is the time to start looking around. Pepperberry, our sister brand, have three brand new and very pretty prom style dresses that are definitely worth checking out, all three would be perfect wedding attire and take you from daytime to evening.

Corsage Prom Dress

Corsage Prom Dress


The first is the Corsage Prom Dress, it’s a lovely prom style dress from Pepperberry. It has a net underskirt and is a classic fifties shape. It can be worn with the satin belt and corsage, which is a lovely detail, or if you chose to wear it without, you can accessorise it with another belt. For a different look, try a gold skinny belt and matching gold clutch for a great evening look. The coral colour is great for summer too.

The second dress is the Silk Floral Prom Dress. This dress could be vintage it’s so lovely, it has a net underskirt too and a cute fixed bow at the waist. It is available in luxury silk blend fabric, in this fabulous floral print, which again looks like a print from the fifties. There is a matching Nude Clutch Bag, which is available in satin. This would look fantastic with matching nude heels and a tangerine tailored jacket.

The third and final dress follows the huge trend for lace, and the Lace Full Skirt Dress is totally gorgeous. It has a full fifties style skirt, with a ribbed waist tie and net underskirt. It is available in navy or red. If you opt for the red version, go for navy accessories. We know this dress is going to be a real winner with our Bravissimo ladies.

And if that’s not enough great wedding wear ideas, we have many more dresses that will help you get to the church (or beach) on time, at Bravissimo.com.
