Dearest Gentle Readers

If you're anything like us, you're likely completely swept up in the Bridgerton craze, which has been gracing our screen this summer. With dramatic storylines, steamy romances, and opulent ballrooms gracing our screens, it’s impossible not to fall in love with this period drama.

Now that season three has finally been released on Netflix, after much anticipation, we can’t get enough of the new romance which is blossoming between the Colin and Penelope.

After seeing what is now the ‘wedding of the season’ we thought that we would look back at our own style to help you find your very own Bridgeton wedding dress and explore a little bit more into the style on the show.

"Bridgerton’s" wedding dresses are inspired by the Regency-era styles, which typically consists of a fitted corset style bodice and A-line skirt with a ruff cap sleeve. These dresses embody the elegance, sophistication, and romance of early 19th-century fashion.

Here are some detailed elements that characterize Bridgerton-inspired wedding dresses which you can incorporate into your own wedding day look and become the diamond of the season:

Key Elements of Bridgerton Wedding Dresses

  1. Empire Waistlines:

High waistlines just below the bust, which creates a long, flowing silhouette that is both graceful and flattering. This style was faltering for most body shapes as it allowed the dress to drop down and create the illusion of a smaller waist.

  1. Delicate Fabrics:

Light and airy materials like silk, chiffon, tulle, and organza were often as they create a more princess theme which elegantly guilds behind rather than weighting the dress down. These fabrics lend a romantic and ethereal quality to the dresses.
