Ted Baker has been working on something extra special for all those brides-to-be out there, earlier this month I was thrilled to preview ‘ Tie The Knot’ Spring 17 collection at The National Wedding Show London Olympia, not only because Ted Baker is one of my favourite high street brands but the fact that they have ventured into the bridal world with a capsule range of exquisite designs that will leave an everlasting impression, as well as bespoke bridal accessories that won’t break your wedding budget.
The exclusive capsule features five romantic and show-stopping bridal styles, from chic and understated gowns to princess-worthy dresses with voluminous tulle skirts. Each design is exquisitely crafted, promising to bring the best of beauty, grace and glamour to make every bride-to-be’s special day a thoroughly stylish affair.
Tie the Knot by Ted Baker has something for everyone with one visit you can dress your whole wedding party in style. Bridesmaids can choose from a fanciful selection of dresses in pretty shades, from powdery blue to rose pink. Floral printed maxi and mid length gowns are perfect for a summer soiree in a variation of lengths, silhouettes and necklines.
The ‘TEALA’ and ‘ZAMISA’ dresses boast spectacular jewel-encrusted bodices that nip in at the waist, cascading into luxuriously heavy pleated silk skirts. Offering two different flattering necklines, both premium gowns were made to mesmerise with their astonishing detail.
Elegant in its simplicity, the ‘BRITLEY’ is a stunning choice for the modern bride. Featuring a sophisticated column silhouette, this ivory beauty highlights applique shoulder detailing and a demure front slit.
The ‘SAMTA’ and ‘ALISOT’ offer a shorter hem length, perfect for twirling on the dance floor with your newly wedded partner. The latter features a halter neckline and lavish pearl and jewel embellishment gracing the collar and waistline. With a touch of playfulness, the ultra-feminine ‘SAMTA’ dress boasts a full floral applique sweetheart neckline bodice and layers of pretty pleated tulle.
Tiers of layered lace, applique peek-a-boo embroidery and diaphanous striped hem panels make the ‘HALORY’ bridal gown effortlessly unique. Sheer sleeves add definition to the narrow column silhouette, offering a modern twist for the contemporary bride. The ‘MILAY’ brings an alternative variation in a shorter length, featuring a bejewelled neckline.
For Grecian goddess radiance the ‘CARESSI’ and ‘CERIAN’ feature sparkling trimmed necklines and elegant double cross straps. Add a diamanté encrusted sash for extra opulence.
The ‘IYLA’ dress features an intricately embroidered floral bodice and boasts a Princess silhouette, elegantly cascading into a full pleated skirt. Highlighting an ultra-feminine bateau neckline and lace back detailing. The playful and feminine 1950’s silhouette of the ‘CHALEA’ and ‘FRIZAY’ dress is perfect for dancing the night away and features intricate embossed embroidery and delicate lace cap sleeves.
Ted Baker knows that with wedding planning, detail is everything. His extra special touches this season include applique florals, oversized lace and cut out detailing. Embellished waist sashes, fine jewellery and matching shoes and handbags can be used to mix and match with any look.
During The National Wedding Show a Ted Baker sales assistant took the time to thoroughly explain the accessory line to me, I loved the fact that all Ted Baker’s bridal shoes are engraved with the message ‘Cinderella is proof that a pair of shoes can change your life’. Brides will also be pleased to know that each shoe has been designed to protect your ‘dancing feet’ from aches and pains during the wedding, by special added padding to the most sensitive areas. Ted Baker has left no leaf unturned each bridal boutique will offer a complimentary bespoke shoe engraving service once you purchase a pair of these beauties.
Ensuring your every bridal need is well and truly covered, a range of nuptial accessories is also available to complement each of Ted’s sensational new creations; from sashes adorned with lashings of sparkle to beautifully embellished satin court shoes and matching clutch bags. Ted Baker also created bridal accessory holders, such as a ring carrier, makeup bag, and a passport travel pack for your honeymoon.
Dapper gents can choose from a suitably suave selection of impeccably crafted suiting, available in the finest fabrics and a range of modern cuts. Classic Ted trimmings in playful floral patterns match back to key bridesmaids styles – just the thing for distinguished guests.
Brides to be can enjoy a bespoke complimentary service and relax in one of Ted’s brand new bridal boutiques situated within selected Ted stores. These one-to-one appointments include styling advice, alteration facilities and a glass of bubbly. The Tie the Knot complimentary service is available in select stores from mid-March. #WedWithTed.
