The ultimate Angelica Bridal style guide

You’ve found your venue, now it’s time to find your dress: Bridal stylist Maisie shares her top dress picks for different venue styles

With the plethora of styles we have on offer here at Angelica, there is well and truly something for every bride. Whether you plan to tie the knot in a grand castle, on a Spanish beach or perhaps a rustic barn, we are committed to helping you find that perfect dress for your special day.

Of course, a versatile selection comes with the seemingly impossible task of selecting just one dress. Despite the endless possibilities and options, it is vital that you pick a gown that reflects your own style and individuality. However, if you are still having trouble narrowing down the style, it could also be helpful to think about your wedding venue, and perhaps how well the dress will tie in with the venue’s aesthetic.

With that in mind, here are my favourite wedding dress picks for these contrasting wedding types:

A Picturesque Vineyard

There is an undeniable romance about a winery wedding venue, and the same can be said about Madi Lane’s 916084 dress. Crafted with exquisite, sequinned Chantilly lace, this enchanting gown exudes elegant allure. 916084’s mesmerising full circle skirt is complemented perfectly by a contemporary sheer- corseted bodice, adding a modern twist to this ethereal creation. Adorned with embellished botanical motifs that glisten in the sunlight and mirror surrounding greenery, is the perfect choice for a vineyard wedding.




A coastal look

Do you desire to overlook the ocean as you say “I do”? This glorious silk showstopper by Australian designer Martina Liana is ideal for a celebration on the sand and a golden hour glow. Featuring a Vivienne Westwood style corseted bodice with architectural draping, this sultry silk off shoulder number is sure to wow the crowd. Browse 538913 by Martina Liana and more here.





A traditional Church Wedding 

Who said that a church wedding dress couldn’t be stylish? Enter 914021 by Elbeth Gillis. Expertly crafted by South African bridal designer Elbeth Gillis, this mesmerising Mikado ballgown incorporates classic elements but with a modern twist. Vivian’s Audrey Hepburn style bateau neckline and grand full circle skirt makes it church appropriate, and its sophisticated low back and sheer side panels add a contemporary touch for the modern, fashion forward bride.




A Stately Home

An idyllic stately home surrounded by nature is the perfect private yet picturesque venue choice.  Depending on the level of grandeur that you desire, there are a variety of different dress directions you can go in. Our choice is Justin Alexander’s 608957 gown, a statement style designed especially for the bride who craves a bit of drama. Adorned with tonal lace beaded appliques which glimmer over the added depth of the Chantilly lace underlay, this fit and flare gown is incredibly striking and truly fit for a fairytale.




A barn wedding

A barn wedding is synonymous with the free-spirited bride, and Rembo Styling is the go-to label for a bold, boho look. Our 578888 gown in particular epitomises modern romance and is the perfect choice for a rustic setting. Featuring a unique modern lace bodice which seamlessly blends with its lightweight chiffon skirt, Cayo Coco is the embodiment of ethereal allure. Browse Rembo Styling here.
