Caroline Castigliano Celebrating Romance 2018 Bridal Collection

This post Caroline Castigliano Celebrating Romance 2018 Bridal Collection first appeared on The Wedding Community Blog

Today I have a whole lot of pretty for you as I take you into wedding dress heaven. I’m delighted to share the fabulous new Caroline Castigliano Celebrating Romance 2018 Bridal Collection.

The new wedding dress collection is full of dreamy corset bodices, luscious silk organza skirts and an incredible array of silhouettes the Caroline Castigliano brand is famous for. Her understated, effortlessly glamorous style continues in the Celebrating Romance 2018 collection.

This multi-faceted collection features timeless designs with ultra-feminine twists, elevated textures and highly luxurious accents. There is a light, airy feel to these dresses. A range of silhouettes, from A-line, to circle skirts and fishtails, all create beautiful movement and a powerful but understated vision.

Texture combinations include stretch crepe, satin faced organza and unusual textured silks. Featuring intricate lace, from beaded to Guipure and soft Chantilly lace, the Caroline Castigliano Celebrating Romance 2018 collection comes in a colour palette of ivory with soft water colours and hints of nude undertones.

“The inspiration for Celebrating Romance was ultra feminine, very fluid gowns. I wanted to create gowns that feel light and airy but create shape and power. The collection needed to be sensual and playful yet only suggestive.

“My signature style is classic and feminine with exquisite fabrics and a great cut. I would say the Caroline Castigliano brand is synonymous with understated chic and classic pieces, and we’re known for contemporary design styles with a modern twist. A Caroline Castigliano creation provokes impact from the moment you walk into a room.” – Caroline Castigliano

The romantic style of the dresses is what the Caroline Castigliano Celebrating Romance 2018 collection is all about. Three lace dresses that really caught my eye are these stunners…

Burgundy

This is such a pretty wedding dress. The classic A-line dress with full tulle skirt sits gracefully below the most delicate bodice, adorned with an intricate floral pattern across the sheer neckline and sleeves. The deep plunging back of Burgundy is so flattering and such a head-turner.

Falling in Love

Long lace sleeves, high neckline and sexy keyhole back make the Falling in Love dress something special. Of the few wedding dresses with keyhole back detail I’ve seen for next season, this is my favourite. This is a very flattering wedding dress.

I Do

Created using one of the prettiest laces I’ve ever seen, I do is so ethereal and ultra feminine. The cold shoulder that flows into the three-quarter length flared sleeves is another lovely, unusual feature.

Aren’t these lace wedding dresses gorgeous? Are you in wedding dress heaven yet? You definitely will be after you see the rest of the wedding dresses in the Caroline Castigliano Celebrating Romance 2018 collection…

These exquisite gowns start at £2,000. View the full collection in the gallery below, and find out more at www.carolinecastigliano.com.

New Freya Rose Bridal Shoes for 2018

This post New Freya Rose Bridal Shoes for 2018 first appeared on The Wedding Community Blog

For any girl who loves shoes, finding the perfect pair of bridal shoes is so exciting. I’m delighted to share the new Freya Rose bridal shoes for spring/summer 2018 – you may find ‘the’ shoes for you amongst these beauties.

Renowned internationally for her intricate detailing and innovative approach to couture shoe design, Freya Rose is highly regarded as one of the leading bridal shoe designers in the UK. Her inherent use of bejewelled and opulent embroidered designs relates to her childhood. Born into a family of fine jewellers, she was surrounded by and exposed to creative artistic references and inspiration. No wonder Freya Rose bridal shoes are so special.

Freya Rose Bridal Shoes SS 2018 - Jasmine Shoes

Freya Rose Classic Bridal Collection

For brides longing for beautiful, elegant bridal shoes, the Freya Rose Classic Bridal Collection is for you. The classic collection has an array of beautiful shoes. Some feature incredible bespoke hand-embroidery with lustrous freshwater pearls, Swarovski crystals and shimmering mother of pearl heels, and others are more demure, yet still exquisite. These shoes are perfect for chic and contemporary brides.

Freya Rose Capsule Collection

New for 2018, the Freya Rose Capsule Collection is a unique and captivating collection of wearable art, inspired by Freya’s background in fine jewellery and her travels in Bali. Genuine mother of pearl forms the heels in mosaic design, inlaid with a polished brass to contrast the soft tones of the shell with metallic elements. So modern and unique, you really will turn heads in these shoes.

Handcrafted by jewellers in Bali, each heel takes around twenty hours to complete. Passionate about promoting the survival of traditional crafts, Freya believes this makes every shoe in the collection as special as a work of art.

The block heel gives the shoes a great modern look. It also means they offer the utmost comfort, so you can dance the night away in them.

There are three new shoes in the Freya Rose Capsule Collection which are perfect for weddings – Courtney, Zara and Jasmine.

Courtney

If you fancy a strappy sandal then how about these beauties? Freya Rose Courtney is an opulent tie-up shoe featuring a stunning mother of pearl and cross-detailed brass block heel. For spring/summer 2018, the statement Courtney sandal gets a vivacious update, available in playful new shades of pink and blue, as well as eye-catching rose gold.

Zara (White)

Jasmine

If you are looking for a bridal boot, what do you think of these? Jasmine is an elegant white leather boot, again featuring the amazing new mother of pearl and brass block heel. These shoes look amazing.

Due to the time it takes to create each pair of shoes in the 2018 Capsule Collection, Freya Rose only makes 50 pairs of each style each season. Each includes a card of authenticity, personally signed by Freya Rose. You’d better be quick if you want a pair of these beautiful shoes.

Freya’s favourite style of the SS18 collection is the Courtney Rose Gold. She loves that even with its metallic finish the rose-pink colour gives it a subtle femininity. Of the bridal collection, Freya loves the unique Chelsea and its simplicity.
