Wedding dresses from Christos Bridal are soft and feminine, but this season they are “a little bit softer, younger and sexier”, says Amsale Aberra about the spring 2016 collection. The fabrics are very soft and suitable for a summer wedding. The designer opted for silk chiffons, lightweight laces and softest tulles.
The inspiration for this collection came from a young bride, and the silhouettes are very relaxed and modern. From slip dresses with ball gown overlays to sexy fit-and-flare frocks with sweetheart bodices and illusion detailing, there is a style for every type of bride. The wedding dresses are effortless, but not bohemian – perfect for a summer wedding by the ocean in the country, or even in a city venue. All the dresses are minimalistic with very subtle beading that adds just a little bit of texture and shimmer to these soft clouds of floating white fabric.
The show was opened with a tulle dress featuring a ball gown skirt layered with point d’esprit and corded lace hand appliqué on bodice. We loved this look because it is so simple and sophisticated with the A-line silhouette that looks great on most brides. A wedding dress with floral hand beaded illusion bodice and soft tulle skirt is perfect for a more traditional bride and a more glamorous event, while the ruffled off-the-shoulder gown made from silk chiffon is just ideal for a girl who wants a romantic and effortless frock for her daytime summer wedding.
A figure-hugging beaded Chantilly lace gown with white crystal shimmer closed the show and we think this wedding dress would be perfect for a glamorous evening event, whereas the fit-and-flare gown layered with point d’esprit and tulle, and decorated with corded lace appliqués on skirt and bodice is a very chic frock for a daytime ceremony.
The perfect wedding make-up to match the vibe of this collection is a natural, fresh-faced look that combines flawless complexion with shimmery eyes and peachy pink lips, while the hair should be tied at the back in a perfectly neat chignon. We can also picture a bride wearing a more relaxed hair-do on her summer wedding in one of these captivating dresses from Christos Bridal!
