Our Pinterest is packed with wedding dress inspiration - from short 50s styles to dramatic ballgowns - but which ones are <i>your</i> favourites? Our most re-pinned Pinterest wedding dress is from British bridal designer Jenny Packham from her Spring 2017 collection: a slinky silk gown with sweetheart illusion neckline with a fabulous embellished, jewelled top with cap sleeves. You loved Monique Lhullier's lace midi dress from her Spring 2017 collection, and were bowled over by Hayley Paige for JLM's stunning blush pink ball gown with a dramatic tiered skirt. Romona Keveza's sleek designs also proved popular, including her Fall 2017 collection smart column gown. Click through to discover our 12 most popular Pinterest wedding dresses...
What better way to follow the 'something blue' tradition than with blue wedding shoes? You don't need us to tell you that blue and white look oh-so chic together, and having a pop of something blue peeping out from your wedding dress is the perfect way to jazz up your bridal look. Blue wedding shoes come in a variety of shades: for brides looking for navy blue shoes for a wedding, LK Bennett or Carvela's styles are gorgeous, or if you want a hit of cobalt, the classic Manolo Blahnik pumps are a must. And then there's the sparkle - Jimmy Choo and Stuart Weitzman have pretty, glittering blue wedding shoes that would look fabulous on the dance floor.

Is there a woman in this world who doesn't love Spanx? Forever answering our underwear prayers, they've done it again and created the new "Spotlight On Lace" collection. The range contains Spanx's signature control briefs and body, but with pretty lace details that perfectly straddle the sexy/supportive boundary.
The new Spanx range brings an end to these two camps of bridal lingerie: the sexy, and the supportive. Wafer-thin lace, soft silks and intricate details certainly look beautiful, but they do little in the line of creating the perfect dress for your wedding dress. Shapewear, sturdy bras and knickers Bridget Jones would be proud of do this job perfectly, but they're most probably not what you want to slink around in at the end of the night - especially when it can take a good 10 minutes to wriggle out of them.
Top tip: white underwear shows up under most white dresses, so opt for the nude for truly invisible lingerie.
