Florals - Dare to be different.
We have a curated collection of bold, elegant dresses for the modern bride who wants to stand out from the crowd and embrace an ultimate luxury. This print and hand painted ballgown ‘Valentina’ by House of Savin epitomises this ethos. Crafted in sumptuous satin with a full skirt and boned bodice ‘Valentina’ expresses a timeless elegance. Imagining a huge English country garden wedding or Manor house, this is a classic theme for British brides and calls for a romantic style to match. Our floral hand painted gowns are at the heart of this look. We have an enchanting collection of floral gowns with 2 more being made for us as we speak. Book this Autumn to try on this collection.
Bohemian with contemporary ethereal styling.
The much-loved Boho trend is here to stay and at May & Grace we offer a grown up take on boho styling. We have a beautiful selection of relaxed gowns perfect for this trend but the design is always sophisticated. These dresses are perfect for a magical garden setting, a woodland wedding or beach destination that are bohemian in essence. The floaty tulle skirt, bandeaux neckline and leg split seen on dress ‘Esla’ lends a youthful, fun and feminine feel to the gown; whilst the beautiful, intricate beaded bodice embroidery adds romance and depth. The perfect combination of prettiness and fun for laid-back vibes. Thigh high skirt splits and detachable sleeves sit among this trend perfectly, mostly with volume, they can really add a dramatic effect to your silhouette!
Modern Minimalist -
There is a huge trend for wrapping, folding and draping luxurious fabrics. This exudes elegance when crafted in sumptuous fabrics and a clean silhouette.
Gown ‘5058’ by Paloma Blanca is perfect for the bride looking for an eternal sophistication and a contemporary feel. This strapless charmeuse satin gown with a sweetheart neckline radiates elegance, the draped bodice is on trend for 2024 and adds a luxurious feel to the silhouette. Just add a show stopping veil from our collection and you have a bridal look ready to wow and stand the test of time! There is no need for added embellishments here, the quality of the fabric and cut are the stars. See some examples of this trend below.
Cool, Relaxed & Chic
We have seen a shift from the traditional wedding with a vast guest list to some more intimate affairs. Smaller scale unusual weddings, 15-40 guests and some really interesting venue choices. This has opened up the bridal design world to embrace a more informal almost anti-bride design aesthetic. Now, don’t get me wrong, there are still a majority of weddings going ahead that are on the grand scale but it has been really exciting learning about your smaller more intimate weddings and locations. We have a contemporary collection of dresses especially for this idea.
‘Kaia’ from our 2024 contemporary collection offers an easy, breezy look, perfect for location weddings on the Riviera, town hall weddings, cool urban venues or perhaps a second dress option to change up your look throughout the day or ideal for a more laid back setting. This youthful two-piece wedding dress is crafted with fine crepe. Featuring an asymmetric neckline and on trend cape creating an effortless nontraditional style! All Eyes on You! We Love this dress!
This trend has been bubbling away for the past year and we have now seen a real variety of styles coming through with this flattering neckline for 2024. The square adds a modern shape to the neckline and can elevate a dress by offering a real contemporary look. It feels ‘modern’, ‘neat’ and ‘chic’!
