You don’t have to break the bank to look great on your big day-the high street has some great bridal gowns, which can make you look gorgeous for less. Coast’s latest collection has a range of dresses that can look perfect on any bride, and nobody will know that you paid less. Here’s a bit about a selection of Coast’s latest range.
Coloured dresses are big news this winter, so why not opt for ‘Allure’, a beautiful gold dress – available in 2 lengths. The maxi version of Allure is great for brides who want to have a classic floor length dress, where as the shorter version is great for those who want to show off their pins (short wedding dresses are also in this winter!). The empire waistline on this gown makes it suitable for almost any body shape, as the empire waistline can create curves on athletic bodies, and hide big hips or tummies on curvy girls. The detachable ribbon and corsage is ideal for those who want to add a bit more colour to their dress, and can emphaise your waist even more. But, for those who would rather stick to a elegant white dress can also try this dress in white. And with prices starting from £135, what could go wrong?
A vintage bride doesn’t need to look any further than this Marilyn Monroe style dress. ‘Sabitini’ is a beautiful halterneck dress that can look great on almost any bride. The low v-neck is ideal for a bride with a bigger bust, while the thick waistband emphasies your waistline, creating curves for girls without any. The babydoll skirt is great for hiding lumps and bumps, and can make legs look even longer, which is perfect for this shorter dress.
Those going for a classic Grecian look for their big day need to look no further than ‘Harmony’, a dramatic maxi dress with elegant draping – which is ideal for those trying to hide a big tummy. The strapless style of this dress is a classic cut, so it is ideal for chic wedding. And the hand sewn silk flowers add extra elegance and making the dress even more special for your big day. Harmony is also available with black draping instead of white, which is perfect for a bride who wants to keep with the latest trend of coloured dresses.
‘Goddess’ is a gorgeous, classic halterneck maxi dress, which is perfect for a simple bride. The low v-neck is great for girls with a bigger bust, while the flowing maxi skirt would be flattering on a taller girl. The thick waistband can both create curves, or de-emphasise curves, according to the shape of the bride. The simplicity of this dress also makes it a perfect style for those petite girls (although you may have to get it shortened a few inches!).
More daring brides can make a statement by wearing a dress like ‘Birdsong’. This dress is perfect for brides with small hips or an athletic build. Why? Because the puff ball skirt emphasises the hips, and so it can make a girl with small hips look like she has bigger hips-therefore creating curves. So beware if you’re a pear-shaped bride, this one could make you look big! The short style also makes this is a great dress for taller girls, as it will make your legs look even longer. The black ribbon and corsage detail makes the dress look girly and will draw some attention to your waist-creating even more curves where they are needs.

Why stop at your wedding dress? Picking the right dresses for your bridesmaids can be tricky, so here are our recommended bridesmaid’s dresses by Coast.
Prom dresses are perfect for girly bridesmaids who aren’t afraid to show off their legs. This style of dress tends to be flattering on most body types, as they are nipped in at the waist (usually with some kind of waistband). The A-line skirt is great for making wide hips seem smaller, and can create curves for slim, athletic girls. When it comes to prom dresses, the girlier the better!
For an elegant, chic wedding, why not try picking maxi dresses for your bridesmaids? Maxi dresses can look great on all figures, as long as the right shape is chosen, and they can look effortlessly classy.
Or for something chic without the length, why not try some of these gorgeous shift dresses?
