For most brides, a wedding dress is the most cherished part of their wedding day, which is why when it comes to selecting a dress, it’s vital that the right dress is picked out. The problem is, of course, that when it comes to the process of choosing a wedding dress, many brides are overwhelmed at the amount of choice on offer to them, and can struggle to find their perfect dress.

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.

Don’t worry there are so many much simpler ways of transforming your look…
