Five Gorgeous Bridal Brands To Shop Online

Depending on your bridal personality, the thought of spending an afternoon at a private appointment in a bridal boutique – where you’re fawned over by the attendant, your sister cries at the sheer perfection of you in a white dress, but not before you’ve tried on twenty of them – might fill you with delight, or dread. If it’s the latter, do not despair. Bridal designers are increasingly taking their wares online, offering time-, or inclination-poor brides the chance to nab a frock that’s every bit as chic (and, let’s be honest, often a whole lot more so, since you’re buying foreign) as their made-to-order sisters.

Here are five of our favourite bridal brands to buy online?
