If you ever wished to go boho on the most important day of your romantic life, sit back and enjoy a cup of refreshing lemonade while we review Free People’s 2016 bridal collection consisting of dreamy wedding dresses! We all remember Free People’s last bridal collection called FP Ever After, and although our memories are still fresh (not even a year has passed since the happy occasion), we are equipped and ready for a new wedding gown lookbook called “City Bride” that’s already available for sale on the website. We can’t complain; the more, the merrier!
So, here’s what you should know about Free People’s new wedding dress collection.
1. No, It’s Not a Nightgown
The lookbook is called the “City Bride,” a very modern, urban, metropolitan name that would make us think the collection includes short stylish bridal dresses that won’t make any inconveniences on the subway. But no, it’s just not what Free People does, and our perception of a city might not be in tune with the brand’s boho vision.
Some of the designs could be worn like the most comfortable nightgown you’ll ever own, but resist your temptation; a wedding gown needs to get the attention it deserves. Loose fit, flowy silhouettes, the soft white fabric not caging your body… we’ve already started describing your perfect boho wedding; can you feel the excitement?
2. It’s Very Comfortable
We have no bullying intention, but the fact that some of the dresses could be worn like nightgowns actually speaks of the comfort of the designs (so take it as a compliment). It’s your wedding day, and you should live that day to the fullest.
A complicated dress might kill the mood, your movements, and eventually the day. So, if you’re into boho fashion, these bridal dresses are just what you need. You don’t believe us? Think again, what other brand would offer you to wear a jumpsuit to your own wedding? It can be your alternative for later into the party, but you’ll most certainly look fashionable in that.
3. It’s Soft, Simple and Chic
Minimalism is always trendy, and Free People’s designs are always loyal to the brand’s vision. Just like any other collection unveiled by this brand, “The City Bride” is very feminine and chic. Not overwhelmed with unnecessary details and trends, these dresses have captured the ideal recipe of simplicity and elegance.
And although Marine Deleeuw has done a great job by falling head to toe into boho chic, it’s the dresses that rule the shoot, not the model. No traditional wedding dress can look as graceful as the wedding separates. A full lace top matched with a skirt of a slight mermaid cut.
So, let the romance flow out of you and forget the traditions of the past. Build a new style and a new trend, because on that day, you are allowed to be happy just the way you want to.
