With the V&A's new exhibition - a tribute to British Glamour Since 1950 - we've fallen head-over-heels for the elegant frocks all over again.

BALLGOWN-INSPIRED WEDDING DRESSES

In the past, ballgowns could cost as much as a house and took months to make, and although that awe-inspiring beauty is sometimes attributed to the expensive price tag, this charming Twobirds dress proves otherwise.

The gorgeous rosette skirt has a definite ballgown feel, but in a very modern and affordable way. It can be wrapped in 15 different ways, so you can be sure to have a very glamorous and unique gown on your big day.

We particularly love the ivory dress, but it is also available in rosewater (both shades are perfect for brides) or windsor navy, aubergine, slate and black for your bridesmaids.
