Loving the bridal bow trend? Here are our top 10 dresses that incorporate this statement feminine detail

This year bows are dominating the bridal runways, but this trend is far from ‘Something new’.

Think of Princess Diana’s breath-taking taffeta ballgown from 1981, decorated with charming bow adornments along the neckline and at the cuffs of the famous puff sleeves. Or even further back, Hollywood star Grace Kelly’s elegant long sleeved bridal gown, featuring playful bows which cascaded down her mesmerising train.

Nevertheless, bridal bows are back and better than ever, and they are the perfect addition to almost any bridal gown.

Our array of designers here at Angelica have truly nailed this swiftly emerging bridal trend. Here are our top 10 dress picks for the brides to be who love a bow just as much as we do!
