Love at First Sight: Essense of Australia’s Spring 2018 Wedding Dress Collection

It will be love at first sight when you discover the new Essense of Australia Spring 2018 wedding dress collection, which puts a modern spin on the bohemian style Essense brides love. Airy chiffon skirts are paired with lace bodices and off-the-shoulder sleeves, while detailed latticework is hand-placed through the hips, and delicate straps crisscross to form geometric-inspired patterns in the back. This season’s highly-coveted V-neckline is also found throughout the collection, accentuated with organic lace or illusion tulle to create a variety of gowns that are sure to take their breath away during that emotional first-look moment.

Unique to this collection is the versatility element, allowing brides to use their wedding dress like a blank canvas to accessorize. One of our favorite ways to do this is through the use of overskirts. With the addition of just one piece, a wedding dress is transformed from a slim silhouette to a breathtaking ballgown. Trust us, once you add an overskirt to your bridal style, it will be love at first sight!

Latticework continues to grow in popularity in the bridal fashion world, and this wedding dress collection is no exception! What makes latticework such a unique detail is its versatility. This season, you’ll see it placed over side cutouts to add coverage, through the hips to sculpt and show off the body and over floral and swirling lace to give a rich, dimensional look to the gown.

Another trend worth all the double taps –  strappy backs –  makes the perfect finishing touch of chic and sexy wedding dresses. From glamorous gowns with sparkling, silver-beaded straps to boho styles with crisscross shoestring straps, there is a gown for every bride with an interesting strap detail in this collection.

While the V-neckline has been popular with brides for many seasons, this season, we’ve given it a completely romantic update, perfect for everyone from our princess brides to our boho girls. Accentuated with organic lace detailing, illusion tulle or off-the-shoulder sleeves, this new neckline adds an instant touch of romance to each gown.
