Narrowing down the list of designers when trying to choose a wedding dress can be one of the trying tasks when you’re planning your wedding. Choosing between different styles, cuts and fabrics can lead you in a hundred different directions, and there is just so much choice! However, there is a solution, which comes in the form of the new 2019 Ladybird Collection. This dazzling Dutch bridal fashion design house is the perfect combination of traditional bridalwear and 21st century-chic. Priding themselves on their versatility, and broad range of influences and features – from bohemian-style gowns to classical ballgowns – Ladybird have designed a collection that caters to every woman, regardless of body shape and stylistic preference.
One of the most important things for the bride on her wedding day is that she feels comfortable, and like her dress reflects her personality and character. And this is something that Ladybird provides in ample measure; no gown is too risqué, but still retains a subtle sensuality through the use of slightly transparent bodices and lace appliqués, which are applied to masterful effect. The variety of features means that the more extravagant bride is sure to find her perfect gown amongst the low-cut sweetheart necklines and tattoo-style backs – and so is the more restrained bride, amongst the flowing trains and lace panelling.
Modernising some of the more traditional bridal looks, Ladybird is unafraid to experiment a little with colour and new embroidery techniques. Lace appliqués are expertly applied to the dresses in this collection, with floral motifs a prevailing quality. The use of soft blush and nude tones – a popular choice for next season amongst designers such as Hayley Paige and Temperley Bridal – add to the sense of romance that is threaded through every gown, and reflects the modern influences on this collection. Other design features such as spaghetti straps, dropped backs and figure-hugging bodices also add to the trendy nature of these gowns.
Perhaps our favourite feature of the new Ladybird collection are the magnificent skirts on display. The cascading fabric and use of ethereal tulle creates a mystical and enchanting rippling effect, emphasising just how perfect these dresses are for romantic brides. The masterful layering of tulle, and the maximum volume created, make ballgowns that will not only make a bride feel like a princess, but that will draw the eye of every guest. Brides who want to use their wedding dress to make a statement often find it a challenge trying to find the perfect balance between drama and elegance, but Ladybird’s 2019 Collection is the perfect antidote.
Ladybird can also be credited as one of the most inclusive designers in the entire bridal fashion industry. Whilst many brands fail to cater and create for women outside of a particular size range, Ladybird gowns come in UK sizes 6-34 (European sizes 32-60), meaning that every woman will be able to find the dress she has always wanted here. And on top of this incredible – and very rare – total size inclusivity, Ladybird gowns are also available for pregnant brides! Specifically tailored to suit different bodies shapes and sizes, the new collection for 2019 shows off the incredible effort that goes into designing such a high-quality range of gowns.
From romantic to classic to vintage to bohemian, every theme and style is covered in this extensive collection – and it is done with great quality fabrics that will truly make you feel like a bride. If you’re in the process of looking for the perfect wedding dress, then make sure you don’t miss out Ladybird. Versatile, elegant and luxurious, this Dutch brand is the ideal place to start looking for the dress of your dreams!
