Its that time of the year again when flowers are blooming, love is swirling and twirling in the air, brides are walking down the aisle and we are all on the hunt for a dress to wear to ‘the wedding’, if not several. At The Freedom State HQ we take wedding attire very seriously, we know our stuff and we get super excited to dress you immaculately from head to toe. So, we’ve done the hard work for you and selected our top 7 head turning dresses for the wedding season, with perfect pairing too, of course.
Let me introduce you to the Spell Gypsy Dancer Gown in Caviar colour-way. This one comes from Spells latest collection and has every girl swooning. Capturing whimsy and elegance in one breath, it is perfect for a spring wedding that dances its way into the evening. Compliment and accentuate the stunning detailing with black strappy heels or ankle boots and black accessories – perhaps the dusty star black choker by House of Sky and stud earrings.
Radiate warmth, and glow like sunshine in the Olivia Luxe Lace Midi in Maple colour-way. This dress is exquisite and ideal for a daytime wedding with the elegant ability to carry you through to the evening with ease. Exuding grace and luxury it will take you to the wedding and beyond. We are loving the billowing sleeves softly elasticated at the wrist, perfect lace panel placement and deep neckline, to name a few. Pair with tan wedges and refined gold jewels – the gold solar plexus chakra necklace by Violet Grey is a heavenly match.
Pretty and peachy, the Valerie Maxi in Blue by Free People, emanates femininity and romance in one. We love this one for a beach or garden wedding. Subtle yet stunning with an abundance of gorgeous detailing – our favourites being the ruffled trim throughout, sensual low back with crisscross feature and the versatility of the drawstring waist. Team with heels and understated jewellery to let this dress shine as the star it is.
Subtly sexy and exuding passion and joy, the Free People Sunsetter Mini Dress in Black, resonates with a late afternoon | evening wedding. The vintage inspired print, flirtatious ruffled sleeve and hem, mini length, deep neckline and the gentle fall of this fabric creates a beautiful balance and offers you a dress that is comfortable yet stunning, fun, elegant and sensual. Imagine this one on the dance floor! Bring out the florals with a cream choker and wear fine strappy black heels to complete this elegant ensemble.
My oh my, the Gracie Maxi by For Love & Lemons, is the epitome of boho-luxe and exudes a goddess like vibe. A beautiful contradiction of intricacy and simplicity, we have fallen madly and deeply for the sultry features on this one – plunging neckline, fitted waist, billowing sleeves, softly elasticated wrists and dotted trim all brought together on a fabric that falls like silk. Wear this one with grace and elegance to a more formal wedding and stop the show (just a little) in this stunning maxi. Complete the look with black heeled booties.
Emanating a softness and elegance that is almost indescribable, the Casablanca Line Dress by Natasha, has stolen our hearts. With intricate black embroidery detail atop a subtle honey cream hue and an abundance of features including black piping and defining ties at neck and waist, this dress turns heads and melts hearts. With effortless versatility it can shine at any wedding – day or night, beach or formal – and is perfectly complimented with a black silk necktie by Silk Laundry and bold black heels.
Playful and feminine, the Gracie Mini by For Love & Lemons, is the ultimate mini for wedding celebrations. Harmoniously balancing a sexy mini length and deep neckline with elegant and whimsical ruffles, allows this mini to radiate femininity, romance and play. We love the retro inspired floral print and discerning chiffon fabric. Pair with heeled booties and a simple black choker and your look is completed with effortless style.
By now, your pupils will have transformed into little love hearts and you’ll be heart broken to say yes to one and not to another. We hear you!
