Tie the knot in style this spring: wedding options from low cost to high fashion
Wednesday 09 March 2011
Everyone's talking about the two Kates' weddings (will Middleton wear Bruce Oldfield or Alexander McQueen? is John Galliano still designing Moss's dress after his spectacular fall from grace?), but with spring just around the corner, there are far more weddings that will need fashionable dressing - here are some new options for all budgets.
For the bohemian glamazon: Matthew Williamson
The most luxurious choice on this list but well worth it: after launching a capsule wedding collection with Net-à-Porter last year, Williamson has unveiled his own 12-piece bridal range that also includes bridesmaid outfits. Styles range from cocktail dresses to floor-length gowns, and prices start at $1,400.
For the romantic girl on a budget: Anthropologie
The Urban Outfitters-owned chain has launched its wedding line BHLDN (short for "beholden,"), with the range including dresses (starting at $600), accessories, lingerie, jewelry and shoes. Accessories such as place cards and other decoration material will be added in May, and Anthropologie even plans to offer a team of stylists and wedding planners to guide you through the big day.
For the pragmatic housewife-to-be: Costco
The US discount giant is making its first foray into the wedding business this June, launching a capsule collection with designer Kirstie Kelly. Priced from $700 to $1,400, the dresses aren't as cheap as you would expect, but certainly fuss-free to shop.
For everyone who knows her size: Shopbop.com
E-tailer Shopbop has announced it will launch a shopping area dedicated to weddings on March 14. Dresses will include designs by Halston Heritage, Lela Rose, Notte by Marchesa, Max Azria, Temperley London, Alice + Olivia, and Calvin Klein, with prices ranging from $195 to $5,000.
