A year in review: wedding dresses

By Bride and Groom 20 December 2017

As the year draws to an end Bride and Groom is looking back at the stunning nuptials we have been lucky enough to share with our readers.

Over the coming weeks we’ll take a look at all of the aspects that make up a wedding day, from the standout outfits right down to the best bonbonnieres.

To kick off Bride and Groom’s year in review, journalists Jessica and Alana fondly remember the wedding dresses that will stand the test of time.

While some brides have always dreamed of wearing a ball gown on their big day, others are choosing to make a contemporary trip down the aisle.

From sleek sheath styles to two piece designs, all eyes have been on the Goulburn Valley’s 2017 brides’ stylish wedding dresses.

Long sleeves are having a moment in the spotlight.

Valley Bride Emily Gemmill made this trend her own with a sophisticated Scandinavian inspired dress for her relaxed wedding-meets-festival celebration.

It was a simple yet elegant gown that made Valley Bride Laura Thomson say yes to the dress.

The stunning design featured clean lines, a sweeping train and was complete with a cathedral length veil for a bridal look that will stand the test of time.

For Valley Bride Sharne Milne, her wedding was never going to be completely conventional, and her wedding dress was case and point.

Walking down the aisle in a custom-made top and skirt combo, Sharne ensured that her wedding dress was unique, just like hers.
