This is a mammoth post, to say the least! I’m really pleased to be showing you these gorgeous and bohemian designs from bridal label Minna. There are short styles, maxi styles, and beautiful tactile fabrics, all set to make you shine on your wedding day. I would say they definitely suit the laid back, boho bride, and I can see them rock a summer wedding brilliantly. These are just a few (!) of my absolute favourites from the collection. The range of accessories are also so lovely, and I’ll showcase these in a separate post.
The Story of the Collection
“Why ‘Every Woman,’ you might ask? Hmm… it’s a long story, but let’s keep it short. We launched our first ever bridal collection in 2012, followed by our second collection ‘Love Stories’ in 2013. We then decided to take a year off from designing another collection. We kept ourselves busy designing dresses for clients, growing the business quietly, and speaking with our customers.
“This collection was inspired by the feedback from our lovely customers, with many pieces named after them. This collection features over twenty dresses, ranging from feathery light silk chiffon maxi length gowns, to bohemian style dresses constructed from crochet type lace with an open back. With gorgeous new lace and delicate silk sourced from far and wide, this collection is a feast for the eyes with lots of delicate touches, hand painted embellishment on capes, and flower headdresses to complete the bridal look.
“We want every single woman coming through the door to find their dream dress. Whether they’re getting married on the beach, city, countryside or road. Whether they’re on a budget or are looking for a custom-made dress. Whether they’re a size 6 or plus-size, tall, petite, pregnant. Our dresses all have our signature look – gorgeous materials, an abundance of lace, a little sexiness, and a style that complements your personality and looks like you. We allow our customers to have fun with our designs, change them and add that little bit of uniqueness to the dress that screams out loud their own individual style. That is part of the fun!
“We want our customers to spend their money on an amazing photographer, venue, food and honeymoon, hence we keep our prices affordable, ranging from £380-£1,400 (excluding alterations and bespoke styles). We still do not charge for first appointments, which seems to surprise our clients.
“There are no rules at the Minna showroom or cap on how many people you want to bring. We have seen dogs and babies crawling on the floor, and bridesmaids having champagne-fuelled dressing sessions that last for hours. And why not: we are as chilled out as our dresses!”
