Whimsical Brides and Playful Details – Carolina Herrera Bridal Gowns

The Pinup Bodice Dress

Pinup bodices are hard to come by these days, especially when we’re talking about actual wedding dresses. This Jordana dress features a strapless neckline and a mermaid-type bottom, creating a vavavoom silhouette with lots of sex appeal. And in true 1950s pinup style, the corset presents boning, perfectly paired with layered pleats in delicate organza.

The Fringe & Feather Dress

Not many elements say ‘whimsy’ as clearly as feathery fringes do. This gorgeous creation is an ideal choice for a bride that wants to step outside the box, and that would rather choose 1920s inspired elements instead of classic lace and expected ruffles. Plus, the trumpet style gown cut is flattering to most body types and sizes!

The Nature-Inspired Dress

Talking about playful dresses with a twist, this Carolina Herrera bridal gown will not disappoint you! As mentioned previously, the brand is all about nature-inspired elements and it doesn’t get more clear that in this piece right here – check out this A-line stunner featuring a top to toe flower branch design!

The Delicate & Floaty Dress

What can be more light than this ensemble? A dress as breezy as air itself, made of the lightest fabric, with side ruffles and a satin belt in beige – a perfect choice for an easy-breezy bride, who is about to embark on a magical journey.

The Sexy Bridal Tuxedo

Talking about alternative ways to dress up while maintaining the glam factor on your wedding day! Just right for edgy brides, this Carolina Herrera bridal tuxedo with a lace top simply oozes sex appeal – wear it with confidence and a powerful attitude!

The Stripes and Flowers Gown

If you are one huge supporter of stripes, then this is your dress. And if you are all about mixing prints, then you too should check out this quirky combination: stripes and florals, both in the same gown. This satin and silk organza halter dress has a skirt that will certainly not go unnoticed, ideal for an eclectic bride who loves a playful look, even on her wedding day.

The Party in the Back Dress

From the front, this dress is simple and elegant, while slightly on the safe side. But when you turn, it’s a full on party! This strapless Mikado dress features an enormous and highly dramatic bow in the back – just the element you needed in order to make a true fashion statement.

The Deconstructive Lace Dress

Another example of a gorgeously crafted Carolina Herrera bridal gown: with a bateau neckline that’s always timelessly chic and gorgeous lace flowers that are almost decomposing in a gradual way, this tulle creation is magical and ideal for a spring wedding when the flowers are in bloom.

The Cotton Gown

Tulle, chiffon, silk and organza are the classic fabrics when it comes to wedding dresses. But how about a cotton garment for your big day? Totally a viable option when you look at this fierce dress! With three quarter sleeves and a high-cut front, this dress features pleated cotton details for an overall smart-casual chic effect.

The Blush Dream Gown

If you are one of those brides that would rather forgo the crispy white dresses and choose an alternative color instead, then add this stunning design on your list of possible wedding dresses. Blush is one of the top colors when it comes to non-white bridal gowns and this dress is a perfect example of a blush beauty. Made of tulle and organza, it presents a softly flared shape and lots of romanticism.

The Drama Dress

Talk about drama! This dress is equally mysterious and dramatic. With its lace column bodice and super ample skirt, it is a gorgeous Carolina Herrera bridal creation, perfect for a bride that keeps on making a hard-to-miss entrance.

The High-Coverage Gown

If you are about to celebrate your nuptials during the colder seasons or if you simply want a dress that offers more coverage while still being modern and fashionable, check out this ivory lace gown with long sleeves!

The Peplum Dress

Another example of a dramatic Carolina Herrera bridal gown! This dress features a peplum element – but if you’re not into such a dramatic detail during your entire wedding, then good news: it is detachable! This lace mermaid dress is as innovative as versatile!
