You’ll know by now that I love Vivienne Westwood. The voluptuous drapes and quirky structures of her dresses are perfect for bridal. Showstopping bridal. As an affiliate, I hear about discounts and special offers, and today I have a great one for you: there’s FREE worldwide shipping until midnight on August 31st, 2015. I thought I’d take the opportunity to show you my favourite bits and bobs from the Vivienne Westwood website for your wedding inspiration. The couture, capsule, made to order and bridal collections require you to be fitted at the Davies Street store, obviously, but the groom accessories, shoes and jewellery can be bought online with the free shipping offer. Just use the code – FREEWWDEL – at the checkout.

Before I show you the more traditional bridal, I thought you might like to see the capsule collection for more offbeat choices of dress. It’s good to be open-minded about looking at designers’ ranges other than straight-up bridal. Any of these could be wedding-appropriate in today’s world. I think my favourite dress to walk down the aisle in is the pink one with the belt. Killer.
These are much more familiar as bridal in shape and structure, but the colours add a drama perfect for a way out bride.
Even though these are much more traditional in terms of colour and shape, there’s no mistaking the Westwood touches.
My favourite range of the recognisably bridal collections, definitely. Far quirkier than the range above, these designs lean on the boundaries much more and are very much statement pieces.
We cannot skip over shoes when it comes to a Vivienne Westwood bride. Those well-known gorgeous PVC shoes are colourful and sexy, not to mention affordable for designer apparel, and so are incredibly popular among alternative brides. They’re becoming a cult item. I’ve also chosen some others from the range that I love.
Alternative brides, check these out for your jewellery: we have skulls, bones, keys to the heart and a three-loop set of pearls with the famous orb. These pieces are excellent in their difference, and yet not too different to upset your mum.
There are very few men’s ranges that get me excited, but Vivienne Westwood’s are one of them. Men are never boring with her. There’s just as much colour, pattern, innovative drapery and theatre in these garments as with the women’s collections. Grooms often get left behind in the wedding planning, so for the ones who want a piece of the sartorial action on the big day, Vivienne Westwood is where to go!
