In the interest of keeping things consistent I thought I’d finish this week with another nod to Americana chic! If there’s anyone competing for a stake iconic American bridal style, it has to be J. Crew. From classic elegance, to romantic hollywood glamour there’s a dress in their new collection for every kind of bride! If you don’t quite have the luxury of travelling to their bridal store in the U.S, you can browse the entire collection online (which includes adorable bridesmaids dresses, sharp suits and stunning accessories) and have your perfect dress shipped to Ireland! So if you always fancied a slice of the American dream…this might just be it!
The Alessa: A silk and faille gown, combining a modern silhouette with a soft organza bow, and oodles of tulle!
The Cecelia: Clean and classic, it captures the essence of simple American elegance, and at €524 is a surprisingly affordable option!
The Corrina: A modern take on Hollywood glamour, it’s how I imagine the dresses from Atonement would look in 2012, and again at around €500 it’s a budget friendly choice.
The Sophie: There’ll be no getting away from long lace sleeves along as the Royal Wedding still is fresh in our minds! I love this fresh and simple take on the look, and although not quite as pocket friendly as the last two options, it’s a gorgeous design for a bride looking for a fresh interpretation of lace.
The Escalier: This certainly makes a romantic statement with it’s criss cross layers and soft sweetheart neckline, but as always it doesn’t loose it’s trademark J.Crew simplicity! High drama without the meringue bit!
The Georgina: Currently on sale, the dropped waist and one shoulder is like Great Gatsby meets Grecian Goddess. Whatever way you look at it, the silk chiffon pleats and delicate buttons are like the icing on the cake!
