Still searching for that perfect bridal dress? Well call off the hunt - Suzanne Neville's Dali gown from the latest collection is the dress for every season, theme and wedding venue (and it's likely to be perfect for your body shape, too!)
Here are our three reasons why:
It's a timeless shape; but with a modern twist. The plunging neckline (which can be made to whatever you desire) and the A-line skirt are a nod to tradition, but the floral texture and panelling at the waist are contemporary additions. Suzanne says: 'This makes it ideal for either a modern venue (think slick, city hotel) or a more trad, country house setting.'
Still deciding between a summer or winter do? The gown is light enough for an outdoor party (we even asked the model wearing it!) but has a full enough-looking skirt for winter - plus the floral design is subtle and ideal for any season. Suzanne says: 'I find that brides nowadays prefer their floral patterns not too in-your-face; it's the raised texture of this pattern that makes it stand out - but not in an overbearing way.'
This dress will suit almost any shape. Why? It may have a soft, romantic look, but it is cleverly structured inside so will nip you in at those all-important places (namely your waist!). 'I'm known for my corsetry; it's one of my specialities,' says Suzanne. 'I'm able to hide scaffolding within even the softest looking of shapes.' The shoulders are exactly the right width, so that the eye is drawn in to create a slimming upper body silhouette. And that silk damask fabric of the skirt? It's designed to fall in all the right places.
