Whatever you’re looking for, shop the LKB Bridal range to find the one to walk down the aisle with.

Different Types Of Bridal Silhouettes

A bridal outfit is a hugely personal thing, and can differ from bride to bride. Some may choose to opt for a classic and timeless style, whereas it might be a fashion forward fit that you want to wear.

If there’s a style that LKB can do well, it’s effortlessly vintage styles with a modern twist that exude an elegant and classic feel. Wedding pictures can live on forever, so opting for a timeless shape and style can take you far.

For a thirties inspired silhouette, try the Rose Ivory Jacquard Bridal Dress. It's a maxi style with a V-neck, statement puff shoulders and long sleeves featuring a feminine bow at the back.

Sleeveless bridal gowns are a popular choice, as with the long, maxi length of a dress many brides choose to have their arms out if they don’t want to feel too covered. Such as the Hyacinth Ivory Low Back Wedding Dress. A dress that’s wonderfully simple but adds drama to the shape with a long train.

For a bride that wants to turn tradition on its head, a bridal suit can be the perfect way to do just that. Whether it’s a smaller wedding or you simply prefer the look of trousers, a suit can be an elegant way to do a wedding for the modern bride.

The Iris Tuxedo in our bridal collection is crafted from beautiful ivory crepe which falls beautifully for a contemporary bridal look.

Our Contemporary Wedding Dresses

Our bridal dresses are crafted with the modern wedding in mind, from registry offices and rustic outdoor weddings to grandiose ceremonies. Each piece is made with the signature LK Bennett design code, to be effortlessly elegant and timeless.

The collection has a distinct vintage influence with contemporary twists for unique yet modern wedding styles.

The Hyacinth’s cut is minimalist and classic, yet the front slit offers movement along with a fresh feel. Our Lily bridal gown is in a warm ivory with a vintage style lace, yet the cuffs and embellishment bring a touch of modernity to the style.

Finding Your Perfect Bridal Style

When finding the right style for you, ensure you consider more than just the shape of the dress, but also the fabric and the hue.

Bridal wear can also depend heavily on the colour of the garment. Although referred to as a white dress, there is a spectrum of shades. Some of which work better with some skin tones than others.

A bridal fabric that is a bright white often washes out the bride wearing it, often not translating well to photos. Opting rather for a warm ivory helps to complement both lighter and darker skin tone.

Above the colour of the bridal gown, you need to think of the whole outfit you’re trying to build. Make sure to not overlook accessories. Having a shoe that gives you the right height and comfort are a must. Ensure you find the heels you’re wearing before having any alterations finalised so you can be sure it’s cut to be the right length.

Our Josephine Ivory Heel have a block heel for comfort in a slimmer version to maintain the elegant and sleek feel. Browse our range of bridal heels here.

Never an outfit without a bag, a clutch might often be passed to a bridesmaid to look after for the ceremony and pictures - but having one place to keep all your important things ensures nothing gets put down and misplaced on a very hectic day. Shop our range of bridal clutches here.
