Delphine Manivet Wedding Dresses

The 2012 Spring/Summer Collection from Delphine Manivet is unbelievable.

These wedding dresses are just the perfect mix of vintage and contemporary, and while the designer has clearly gotten inspiration from several decades of fashion, this works wonderfully for the collection. Delphine is already a popular designer in her homeland in France and is quickly making a name for herself in the UK, and slowly but steadily all over the world.

“The search for my own wedding dress made me want to share with other women my vision of the modern bride, that of a woman who doesn’t necessarily get married at 20, who doesn’t want to look like a meringue, but who wants the dress she imagined in her little girl’s dreams…”

Here are our picks from the Delphine Mavinet 2012 Spring/Summer Collection…

Delphine’s wedding dresses are either floor-length or really short – as in thigh-grazing, bohemian short – and this kind of contrast is actually a refreshing change from the traditional tea-length wedding dresses. There is one ankle-length 1950s tweed dress, though, which has that quiet, graceful look about it. The long gowns remind us of the 1930s elegance, with their high collars, dropped waists, and lace sleeves.

    Simply amazing wedding dresses! Brides and bridesmaids formal and casual all neutral tones and wearable after the wedding day. Delphine Manivet has brought back style and simplicity to the archaic tradition of a marriage ceremony. Simply elegant. These dresses and gowns would suit any Gold Coast Wedding back drop and occasion.
