Our top picks from Stella York

The summer wedding season is in full swing here at Oscar Lili, and we’re excited to be welcoming the sunshine as well as a selection of fabulous styles from the Stella York 2019 collection that showcase this year’s key summer bridal trends.

The Australian-inspired design is youthful and fresh this summer and in true Stella York fashion, there is no compromise with glamour. We promise you will be glowing on your special day, and with expertly crafted fit and perfectly figure forming silhouettes all eyes will most definitely be on the bride. This season traditional ballgown styles are a must-have for the bride who wants to make a statement and one of our favourites is Stella York 6581.

Think traditional with a little extra something; this wedding dress is an update on a princess style with an amazing voluminous tulle skirt and long train to give extra impact. The clean structured mikado bodice is super flattering and the deep plunge V-neckline, V-back and side cut-outs add a sexy, contemporary edge. The nude tulle inserts give reassurance when wearing this more revealing style and if you want to show a bit more skin for summer but feel a little wary then this could be the perfect dress for you. A concealed zip back fastening adds extra ease of wear, while the bodice is lightweight and the tulle skirt provides a lot of movement which is ideal for warmer days.

If you are looking for more detail then you’ll be glad to hear that the romantic lace trend has been big on the runway; with embroidery, appliqué, soft tulle and florals taking centre stage. The perfect look for summer, we think Stella York 6732 is a style that has it all.

This dress would be beautiful for a garden wedding with its floral patterned lace covering the bodice and creeping down onto the voluminous tulle skirt. 3D organza flowers are also scattered across the soft sheer tulle fabric to add subtle texture and romanticism. The bodice is a flattering corset style and has sheer areas between the lace, with off-shoulder pearl straps giving a real touch of glamour.

Another option if you love the whimsical floral look but want a more Boho bride feel, is Stella York 6646.

This is such an elegant, contemporary dress which is also something a little different. It is all about the details with satin covered buttons fastening all the way down the back. The bodice is nude illusion with a beautiful statement floral lace which appears to flow off the shoulders, down to the waistline and just onto the French tulle and matte satin skirt. The long lace sleeves, A-line silhouette and lightweight feel of the gown provide a lovely relaxed style for summertime; however, with a dramatic plunge neckline and sheer open back you will still make quite the impression.

Whether you are looking for dramatic and traditional, elegant summer simplicity or perhaps something a bit more playful, “with each creation a perfect complement to a bride’s attitude, style and spirit”, Stella York have ensured that there is something to suit everyone. We know you can never have too much choice when it comes to your wedding day and to make sure you find the perfect match we have a wide variety of styles for you to choose from in our Edinburgh bridal boutique.
