Firenze is a district of Florence which is said to be the most beautiful of cities in Italy and this empire-line maxi dress by Phase Eight is aptly named because it’s one of the most stunning wedding dresses you’ll see on the High Street. In sizes 8 to 18 – £375
Paloma is an intricately detailed vintage style dress available in sizes 8 to 18. The dress is priced at £450 and is selling out fast – which is no surprise really because it’s a stunner!
The John Lewis wedding collection has been popular so far but many lines sell out quickly which has caused disappointment with some. It’s hoped that eventually the ‘powers that be’ at John Lewis will realise the demand there is out there for affordable designer style wedding wear and build up the range accordingly – we’ll see?
