Chiffon wedding dress picks made for summer brides

Chiffon wedding dress picks made for summer brides.

With spring underway and summer now in sight, the practicalities of marrying during peak wedding season are firmly in focus for summer brides- and grooms-to-be. On paper, summer may be more pleasant than any of the other seasons, yet it doesn’t come without its challenges. If you are blessed with great weather on your summer wedding day, adding the extras that keep your guests cool will be a priority. So, how can brides be more comfortable in the face of rising temperatures?

It all starts with your wedding dress. There are several bridalwear designs that are better suited to summer, and when it comes to material, chiffon is certainly up there. Here Simply Wed Bridal explains why choosing a chiffon bridal gown is a great move for your summer wedding day:

“Elegant, lightweight, and luxurious, a chiffon wedding dress is soft to the touch and offers a slight sheen. This makes it a popular choice for destination weddings, beach weddings and botanical-themed venues. The breathable fabric makes for a super comfortable relaxed feel, and it drapes beautifully over the body, perfect for a romantic feminine look. Not only is it easy to wear but a light steam will easily remove any wrinkles if necessary…”

So, you’re set on chiffon for your summer wedding, what next? It’s time to explore the many beautiful chiffon designs that are out there on the UK bridalwear scene! In this blog post, we share our top chiffon wedding dress picks to get you started…

India by Kelsey Rose

With its V-neckline to the front and back, and lace bodice, India by Kelsey Rose is a stunning, ultra-feminine design that’s delicate and elegant.

The result is a classic chiffon ensemble and a truly timeless bridal look.

Love Swan by Phillipa Lepley

Beautiful in blush pink, the Love Swan dress by Phillipa Lepley is one of the finest examples of how to do chiffon justice. 

This beautiful design uses not one but two layers of silk chiffon drape to form a romantic, billowing skirt that’s made for movement. The couture dress also features an exquisite corseted bodice to add structure to this refined bridal look.

Like all of the dresses in the Phillipa Lepley collection, this gown is made in England and boasts the luxury, style and comfort every bride deserves on their wedding day.
