One quick look around Bespoke Bride and you’ll find it’s pretty obvious that we’re not HUGE fans of being traditional, you wouldn’t find me throwing a beautiful bouquet that someone has poured their heart into creating just because it’s tradition and I’m not sure I would wear ‘something blue’ on my wedding day but one tradition I do really love is the garter.

Right, let’s talk dresses shall we? Because it’s not always easy to know what style of garter you can wear with different types of wedding dresses. For example, if you’re wearing a dress or skirt that has lot’s of layers then you really can choose from a wide range of garters, in fact you could wear any type that you like, whether it’s lace, silk, tulle or embellished, the garter world is your oyster!

However, if you’re going to be wearing a tight fitting gown then you might want to consider a simple silk garter, The Wedding Garter Co have garters (Like the ‘Hera’ garter) that have been specifically designed to be more sleek and discreet, making them the perfect hidden accessory. (Top Tip: Wear them just above the knee to keep them more concealed)

The Bespoke Bride Collection by Jessica Bennett

'Luella' Jessica Bennett Bespoke Bride

We just love getting to be the first to have a little sneaky peek at a brand new collection, especially when the photos and styling are as gorgeous as this!

As I flicked through this range I was instantly drawn to the gorgeous layers, the ruching, the embroidery, the open backs… My list was endless and I just had to share it with you too. With so many of you getting engaged over the holiday period it is likely many of you will be looking for some dress inspiration and by golly gosh and I think we may just have found exactly what you are looking for!

We would like to introduce you to Jessica Bennett’s Bespoke Bride Collection. Bespoke by name Bespoke by nature, Jessica Bennett aims to create bridal gowns to suit brides who desire a unique wedding dress that has been designed exactly to fit their shape and specification.

To kick us off I would like you to see my favourite, otherwise known as ‘Luella’, if you have an hourglass figure such as myself the peplum can be extremely flattering. I also love love love the boleros or ‘separates’, I am a little self conscious about having cleavage on show so a bolero such as the sleeveless vintage which can be seen on ‘Gabriella’  is a great little cover up without losing the beauty of the dress. For those of you conscious about having arms on show then you should totally take a look at the embroidered tulle long-sleeved bolero paired with ‘Millie’.

Dresses start at just £780 which is you ask me is a totally mind blowing and is an opportunity not to be missed! And dont forget these ladies specialise in Bespoke wedding dresses so if you have something else in mind you really must give them a shout!
