STYLE FINDER: We help one bride with the search for her dream full-skirted dress


Written by Sarah Tippett


Bride-to-be Rachel got in touch after falling in love with Ian Stuart's Balanchine gown, which is no longer available. Our Fashion Ed. Sarah started the search for something similar...

 

 

 

Our brand-spanking new glossy STYLE FINDER is going down fabulously with all of you brides-to-be! It's the perfect bridal tool if you're having a bit of a shopping moment and can't find something! Our Fashion Ed. Sarah is here to help you discover and purchase the perfect thing, whether you're a bride without a dress, or a guest without a wedding outfit! 

 

We helped Rachel after she emailed in with the following question...

 

 

THE BIG Q

'I spotted the Balanchine dress by Ian Stuart and was gutted to find out it's discontinued! If you could find me a similar dress with the tiered tulle skirt that would be brilliant!'

STYLE FINDER RESPONSE

Hi Rachel,  

Thanks for getting in touch with Wedding's glossy new STYLE FINDER and CONGRATULATIONS on being engaged! 

So, I've had a look (keeping your dream dress from Ian Stuart in mind) and come up with the below, handpicked suggestions...

 

#1 To start off with, I'd suggest looking at the rest of Ian Stuart's fabulous collection. This one on the right is quite similar with it's tulle skirt and decorative ribbons. While the gown on the left, from Sophia Tolli  - also creates a similar silhouette.

#3 This layered tulle dress is from Ivory & Co Bridal, while this strapless tulle beauty is by Madeline Gardner New York - we love the embroidered flower detail on the skirt!
