Are you dreaming of an outdoor wedding ceremony on the beach? If so, then you might be in the right place! Utilizing its signature ethereal boho silhouettes and the traditional yet modern approach to fashion, Free People has just released one of its most feminine and quirkiest bridal collections ever, rife with dreamy wedding dresses for this summer 2016 season that will make you have the desire to live happily ever after, indeed. Dubbed ‘Ever After’, the 12-piece line-up features model Anna Trosko, who naturally poses for photographer Graham Dunn donning simplistic, flowing gowns with loads of attitude that already can be purchased from the brand’s website.
Although composed of only 12 different designs, Free People’s Ever After collection is definitely versatile and eclectic, and features some of the most unconventional figures you will probably ever see. There’s, however, a common sophisticated and vintage aura a la Free People that wraps up all of these gorgeous wedding dresses.
Alternating sweeping figures with more curve-hugging silhouettes, floor-length gowns with skimpy tops, the collection reflects not only Free People’s aesthetics, but also that of the designers of the creations, who often provide their artisanal services for the online retailer (as for this collection, you will easily spot lines and cuts peculiar of Gwen Jones, Odylyne the Ceremony, Spell and Houton and Stone Cold Fox).
Overall minimalist and mostly dipped in white, the proposals greatly vary in detailing and silhouettes, making sure all the attention is placed on the bride and her personality. There’s one thing for sure about the line-up, and that’s the fact that wearing one of these 12 dresses will help you walk down the (preferably sandy) aisle knowing that your personal style has been fully voiced.
For those who are not looking for the traditional purely white wedding dress, there is Odylyne the Ceremony’s Icarus gown with sparkly golden embellishments and with a certain Greek Goddess allure, which will just look perfect and natural in any outdoor setting, especially if the ceremony takes place at sunset.
If you are considering holding a ceremony after the sun goes down but are looking for a more boho/free-spirited kind of dress to meet your carefree personality, we recommend considering the Spell and the Gypsy Collective’s Gwendolyn wrap gown with delicate intricate embroidery details on the sleeves, front and back that will make you look like you just gloriously stepped out of the Seventies.
Equally billowy and gorgeous is the Aurora Gown featuring a deep front V slit, scalloped trim and three-quarter sleeves perfectly combining the boho-chic style with a more romantic attitude.
The most unconventional and jaw-dropping proposals include a billowy butterfly-sleeved, off-shoulder hourglass mermaid gown designed by Stone Cold, a two-piece look designed by Odylyne the Ceremony that will make us travel back to 1968 (giving us a glimpse of what an outdoor boho wedding looked like in the Woodstock era), and, above all, the ultra-modern, ultra-feminine Stone Cold Fox Jumpsuit, named ‘Monet’ after the notorious French painter. Made in silk Charmeuse and with lace and crochet inserts, the Monet jumpsuit will definitely make many of you say ‘I do’ (at least to the dress).
