Carol Hannah’s 2013 Spring/ Summer Wedding Dress Collection is based on the luxe garden fetes of F. Scott Fitzgerald of the 1920s! Carol said it took her over a year to read his entire collection, and was totally inspired by his books! She named every gown after an estate, or garden that you would want to lounge in.
In her latest collection, there are loads of different hues, such as blush, ivories and greys, as well as attention-grabbing shapes, like peplum, backless and total candy floss (we just made that shape up!)! There are also necklines to suit every bride, from high necks, to very low necks, to necklines in between!
Carol describes this collection as “refined opulence and sophisticated whimsy” – couldn’t have said it better ourselves!
Did you ever think that the above wedding dress sketches could go be transformed in the beauties below? Us neither! We know it all has to start somewhere, but to look at Carol Hannah’s amazingly intricate, yet beautifully simple 2013 wedding dress collection, you would have thought the gowns could only have been ever dreamed up!
Backless wedding dresses are one of the biggest trends for 2013, we love this ‘Pemberley’ gown, the high-neck and embellished sleeves gives the dress the perfect balance to go from the ceremony to reception!
This beautiful ‘Addington’ jacket can be worn over the shoulders for the ceremony or even on a chillier day, but can be removed for the reception and pictures, and worn over and over again!
This blush ‘Grand Palais’ (above) and the silvery ‘Belmont’ gown (below) offers a fantastic alternative to the traditional wedding dress and is perfect for the bride that wants something that little bit different!
We love this ‘Versaille Bustier’ that really complements either the sleek ‘Trumpet Skirt’ (above) or the ‘Crinkled A-Line Skirt’ (below) depending on the look that you are looking for for your big day!
An ideal city-chic wedding gown is the ‘La Cite’! Fabulous, elegant, sleek and backless – with this dress you’ll be ticking every wedding dress trend for 2013!
