GLAMOROUS BEADED WEDDING GOWNS

Beaded bridal gowns are a popular choice for brides who want to make a dazzling statement on their special day. Beaded wedding dresses come in a variety of styles, from classic and timeless to modern and trendy. The beads and embellishments can add sparkle, texture, and intricate details to the gown, creating a stunning and eye-catching look. Here are some key points to consider when looking for a glamorous beaded wedding gown.

 

STYLE

 

 

Beaded wedding gowns can be found in various styles, such as A-line, mermaid, ball gown, sheath, and more. Choose a style that complements your body shape and personal preferences.

 

Bead Type

 

 

Beads can be made from a variety of materials, including crystals, pearls, sequins, and glass beads. Consider the type of beads that best match your vision for the gown.

 

Neckline 

 

 

The neckline of your gown can dramatically impact the overall look. Common options include sweetheart, V-neck, strapless, and off-the-shoulder necklines. Choose one that flatters your face and upper body.

 

Back Design

 

 

Some beaded gowns have intricate beadwork on the back, while others may feature a more modest or open back. Your choice should align with your comfort level and style.

 

Colour

 

 

Most brides opt for traditional white or ivory gowns, but beaded wedding dresses can also come in various shades, such as blush, champagne, or even bolder colours if you want to make a unique statement.

 

Silhouette

 

 

The wedding gown’s silhouette is crucial, as it determines how the dress fits your body. You can choose from fitted, flowing, or voluminous silhouettes, depending on your taste and the formality of your wedding.

 

Train Length

 

 

Consider whether you want a gown with a short train, a cathedral-length train, or something in between. The length of the train can impact the overall look and the ease of movement.

 

Body Shape

 

 

Choose a wedding dress  that flatters your body shape. Beaded  bridal gowns can accentuate or minimise certain features, so keep this in mind during your dress selection.

 

Accessories:

 

 

Consider the type of accessories you want to wear with your beaded gown, such as a veil, tiara, earrings, or a sash. These can enhance the overall look.

The gown is made from ivory taffeta and is encrusted with diamanté and has a geometric checkered bodice. The Queen’a vintage dress had to be remodelled to fit princess Beatrice’s measurements.  The beautiful bride paired her exquisite ivory gown with the Queen Mary diamond fringe tiara that was worn by Queen Elizabeth II on her wedding  day in 1947.

Hubert de Givenchy the great master of Haute Couture

The world of fashion has lost one of its great talents. Hubert de Givenchy was the last of the generation of designers of French haute couture. In this article we commemorate his incredible work that has marked an unforgettable footprint in haute couture.

In the 1950s, Givenchy presented his first collection with unique and innovative pieces, like the Bettina blouse, giving a new direction to elegance with simplicity. In this way he created the dresses with the minimum of seams possible, thus enchanting the woman’s body:

“The dress must follow the body of a woman. It is not the body that must adapt to the dress.”

With this idea, Givenchy showed his admiration for femininity and his particular vision of fashion, which we should all follow.

The French designer marked his fame by creating personalised clothing for princesses and first ladies of high society in the mid-twentieth century, such as Jackie Kennedy or the Duchess of Windsor. His most beloved client was the legendary actress Audrey Hepburn who also shared great admiration for Givenchy

“He is more than a designer, he is a personality creator”.

Hepburn commissioned the French courtier to make the emblematic dresses she wore in her most recognised movies, such as Breakfast in Tiffany, Sabrina and Funny Face.

The iconic black dress of Breakfast in Tiffany

Givenchy was the couturier of Audrey Hepburn not only in the movies, but also in real life. In her second marriage to Andrea Dotti, Audrey wore a pale pink long-sleeved wool mini-dress, designed by her close friend. Her cute headscarf was made from the same fabric as her beautiful dress, creating an iconic look that was dramatically different from the traditional bridal veil.

Hubert de Givenchy was part of a generation of designers who sought perfection from beginning to end using high-quality fabrics sewn with extreme attention to detail often using time-consuming
hand-executed techniques.
