This is the nation’s dream wedding dress as designed by the experts – that is, thousands of British brides.
The women were asked to come up with their perfect gown, picking every detail from dress shape and length to sleeve style, fabric and embellishment.
And here is the result – brought to life over ten days by top bridal designer Stephanie Allin, who makes all her gowns by hand at her workshop in Wales
The catch? Anyone who wants to walk down the aisle in this one will have to pay £15,000 for the privilege.
Around 3,000 readers of Brides magazine provided their views about what made the perfect dress
More flattering is the sweetheart neckline, chosen by 39 per cent and shown by the likes of Lanvin, Prada and Gucci on their autumn/winter 2013 catwalks.
Designed to add femininity to a dress, the sweetheart works to emphasise the bust – whatever your size – without being revealing, and balances out those tricky cap sleeves.
Together with a waist-cinching embellishment and on-trend fishtail skirt, this hourglass-enhancing dress is truly something that will flatter any figure.
Mrs Allin, who has been designing wedding dresses for 22 years and has a store in Marylebone, Central London, said: ‘It is made from French Chantilly lace, with silk crepe and silk chiffon underskirts, which give it a beautiful swishing feeling.’
