French Connection Launches Dreamy New Bridal Range

A 2018 collection inspired by Kate Moss and Bianca Jagger


High Street luxe label French Connection has launched a brand new bridal collection for 2018, and offers gorgeous gowns for the modern free-spirited bride.

With weddings becoming increasingly expensive (costing in the region of £20,000!), many brides-to-be are continually looking for ways to save money without compromising on quality or style. So it’s no surprise that French Connection are the latest high-street brand to jump on the affordable bridal wear bus, with a new capsule collection launching February 2018.

The brand has followed in the footsteps of other major retailers and high-street chains such as Topshop, ASOS, Dorothy Perkins and Whistles to launch a range of bridal and bridesmaid dresses that won’t break the bank.  Meaning all you future brides can walk down the aisle in the dress of your dreams, even on a budget.  So what can we expect from the edit which ranges from £65-£250?

The collection is inspired by female fashion icons and their former wedding gowns, including Kate Moss, Poppy Delevigne and Bianca Jagger. With modern cuts, sorbet hues and bohemian vibes these dresses epitomizes great British fashion and style.  We LOVED this boho-inspired 70’s gown with bell sleeves!

It’s all about simplicity… this sweet little gown would be perfect for a summer soiree.

Design director of French Connection, Maria Chen told Vogue:

“With the growing trend of wedding dresses that don’t blow the budget, as well as bride’s wearing multiple outfits on the day, the idea was welcomed by our inner circle of brides-to-be… Our moodboard was filled with the details that made their bridal wear special…for example, Poppy and Kate’s beading, Bianca’s tailored separates.”

From boho-inspired gowns with romantic bell sleeves, whimsical skirts, trouser suits and hand embellishments this collection is perfect for modern ethereal brides.  Additionally, French Connection also offer bridesmaid dresses to compliment their bridal, with candy tones, colourful embroidery, tulle galore and beaded blooms.
