Why We Love Pronovias

We also love Pronovias gowns because of the fabrics. Really, they’re just heaven. Gorgeous laces are major features of many of the dresses and they’re just perfect. Check out the illusion necklines and bodices – swoon! We’re head-over-heels with the lace sleeves and embellished hems too.

There are also plenty of First-Lady style gowns in the collection too. Fitted waists, full skirts, elegant necklines and on-trend pockets are just so chic and stylish. We predict that these classic, sophisticated styles are going to be VERY popular indeed.

WEDDING DRESSES – WHY WE LOVE LACE

Here at Flossy & Willow, we’re in love. We’ve lost our hearts to lace and we know that we’re not alone. So many of the gowns we stock feature this fabulous fabric and our brides fall for it time and time again. Today, we’re going to indulge ourselves and see why this material is perfect for wedding dresses…

If we go back in time, brides used to use lace in their wedding dresses because it was expensive. It had to be crafted by hand and as it was so labour intensive to produce, the costs were sky high. This meant that wearing lace made a real statement about your family and your position in society.

Nowadays, designers are filling their collections with lacy delights for many different reasons. From delicate Chantilly to bold Guipere, lace is romantic, delicate and downright gorgeous. Not only that but because there are so many styles of fabric, you can choose one that suits you and your wedding.

We also love that this super sweet material is now being used in so many different ways. From layered skirts to show-stopping illusion backs, lace can bring a whole new level of gorgeous to your gown. So not only is it fashionable and feminine, it can also be modern or more vintage and you’ll find every style at Flossy & Willow.

Our Designers Love Lace Too!

Catherine Deane’s collection includes lace sleeves and layered bodices that create really interesting and unusual necklines. Benjamin Roberts also uses lace to create bodices and cap sleeves but there are also slinky lacy skirts and plunging V-necks with delicate fabric inserts.

Willowby by Watters’ collection is full of lacy loveliness and we’d happily wear every single wedding dress they design! Gorgeous tops are teamed with tulle skirts and lacy overskirts become dreamy trains. Willowby’s bridal separates are just brilliant and allow you to create your own look with our beloved fabric. Our Mikaella by Paloma Blanca edit also features oodles of this exquisite material and we swoon for the figure hugging designs that are sheer perfection.

If you’d like to fall in love with lace, come and visit us to try on our selection of designer gowns. We bet your heart will be beating faster in no time!

DESIGNER STYLE FILE – WILLOWBY BY WATTERS

When we were choosing the designers we wanted to stock at Flossy & Willow, there were some names that we just knew we had to bring to the boutique and the simply adorable gowns from Willowby by Watters were high on our must-have list. So many Flossy & Willow brides have fallen in love with these beautiful gowns since we opened our doors earlier this year that we thought it was high time that we took a longer look at these wonderful wedding dresses…

Willowby-5

Willowby is the laid-back label from the brilliant wedding design house, Watters. Willowby wedding gowns are soft and sultry. They mix fabulous fabrics with a range of styles so whether you’re a Boho, vintage, beach or romantic bride, you’ll be spoiled for choice. And we do mean spoiled rotten!

So, why do we love Willowby by Watters? Well, we’ve mentioned fabrics already but there’s pretty lace, tulle, satin and so much more. The laces are downright amazing and you won’t find these motifs anywhere else. The tulle skirts are probably the most romantic thing you’ll ever see and the satins bring a touch of sex appeal to the collection. In short, wow.

We also adore the shapes of the Willowby gowns. There are strapless bodices, straps of all sizes, deep V-necks and every dress has it’s own unique neckline that’s designed to make you look great. There are also illusion backs (swoon!), sweeping trains and the most flattering skirt shapes that a bride could wish for plus skirt/top combos that are bang on the bridal separates trend.

You’ll be comfortable, confident and, most importantly, you’ll find at least one dress in the collection that really represents who you are. In short, we love Willowby wedding dresses because they are who you are – fantastically individual and all-round gorgeous.
