Ethereal yet seductive, a beguiling mix of sheer sensuality and heirloom femininity, a glimpse of skin, a drift of hem, a subtle intrigue. The delicate, featherweight dresses to grace recent runways translate beautifully into a monochrome bridal party palette, of barely there gowns.
Imagined in wisps of tulle and the sheerest of silks, slips of chiffon and soft clouds of georgette, these pieces layer perfectly with self-coloured slips, or tones of nude for the daring at heart.
White tints (inset with lace) offer a softness and whimsy, think Picnic At Hanging at Rock meets Virgin Suicides, just add delicate florals. Darker shades on the other hand will feel perfectly appropriate after dark, a cocktail or black tie wedding, best completed with gilded adornment.
