Wedding Dress Inspiration – Jenny Packham, Spring 2015
Standing at a diminutive 5ft 3in, I realised from the moment I started my wedding dress search that a lot of the dresses I was drooling over would look completely different on me compared to the amazonian goddesses slinking down the runways. What I fondly consider my vertical challenge, was what made me fall in love with viewing real weddings online instead. It was great to see how a dress I adored on the runway translated into real life on a "real" bride. It seems one of our beloved designers, Jenny Packham, has understood that her brides are looking for a little more reality during their searches. During the latest Bridal Fashion week she finished and ended her show with plus size models in her ever gorgeous gowns. We already adore her but this has propelled her to even loftier heights in my opinion! Along with the opening and closing gowns, everything in between was as you would expect - flattering to the female form, classic and filled with intricate detailing and embellishments.
