Bridal Fashion


When choosing your dream dress, the term bridal fashion probably doesn't come to mind, but bridal fashion is very much a thing. Bridal designers follow trends for each season just like their counterpart fashion designers who might design on-trend military-inspired collections one season and animal inspired prints the next.

In this blog category, you can find everything you need to know about bridal fashion, from our much-loved dress of the month blog to popular choices right now and the latest fashions for sleeves, skirts, ballgown wedding dresses and more. If you're looking for the perfect styles for beach nuptials or a winter wedding, look no further. We even bring you a sneak peek into our latest collections and our ever-popular insight into our real brides' big days.

Beach-themed weddings
When it comes to wedding dresses fit for the beach, lighter is often better - and not just for packing.

Sleeves
In the early noughties, strapless wedding dresses were in favour but since Kate Middleton walked down the aisle in 2011, long sleeves have made a huge comeback. Whether you're looking for something demure for a church wedding or a warmer option for the great outdoors or a winter wonderland wedding, we bring you the lowdown on wedding dresses with sleeves - and what's hot right now.

Ballgown skirts
Fashions fade, but style is eternal. This famous quote from Yves Saint Laurent certainly rings true when it comes to the most iconic wedding dress skirt - the ballgown. The beautiful ballgown has never gone out of bridal fashion thanks to its iconic silhouette fit for the bridal princess but, as with other dress details, it's not immune to trends with classic and simplistic styles becoming increasingly popular as weddings become smaller and more intimate post-COVID. Our blog on ballgown wedding dresses showcases some of our most beautiful and on-trend ballgowns to bring you up to speed.

Real brides
Whether you're a die-hard fashionista or not, it's nice to see dresses on real women and bridal fashion is no different. Our real bride stories showcase what other brides are wearing right now so you can see bridal fashion in situ, on real women, in real wedding venues and with real guests.

If you're a fashion-forward bride or completely clueless, stay tuned for the latest insights so you can be sure your big day and dream dress follow the latest bridal fashion trends for wherever you choose to get married.

If you'd like us to cover a different bridal fashion topic or your real bride story, send your suggestion or details of your big day to enquiries@ronaldjoyce.com.

Day-to-Night

Blog Covers (6)

Every bride wants to look elegant and stunning on her wedding day, but many brides are asking us how to change their look from day to night? Perhaps you want more of a party style for the evening or a more conservative look for your church service. Of course, we could get a completely different outfit for the evening with a new hair and make-up stylist… but that is both time consuming and very expensive! Don’t worry there are so many much simpler ways of transforming your look…

To many, the winter sets a mood for magic and fairy tales, and dresses like the Lilith can help you fit that picture perfectly. Lace motifs, illusion sleeves and an illusion back and neck create a fantastical and elegant look. Meanwhile, ballgown style skirts offer not just a little more comfort and protection for your legs. They also serve to heighten the look like you have taken a step right out of a storybook.

The Beauty Of Blush

Ronald Joyce Blog Cover (5)White may be the traditional option, but bold brides from all over have long decided and discovered that it’s not the only one available. In most cases, many tend to choose an off-white colour to help display their personality.

Blush may once have been the “go-to” colour for bridesmaid dresses, but many brides are finding the colour lets them add a touch of romance, warmth and delicacy to their look.
