In fact, many modern savvy brides choose to have a simple classic dress that does not cost the earth, such as these designer wedding dresses.

We selected for you the coolest emerging bridal and headwear designers who create unique masterpieces. Each of them is a true piece of art – a uniquely handcrafted piece and often can be customised to your needs. It will no doubt become a valued keepsake for you and will be treasured for generations to come.
