Black Pearl Weddings are proud to publish this blog, guest authored by up-and-coming Wedding Planner Charlene Nwaka. Charlene has a particular interest in wedding gowns, and here, she has shared a few of her personal favourites. Over to you Charlene:

It goes without saying that every bride wants to look her best on her wedding day (of course). That said, with all the styles, fabrics and details, can too much choice be well, too much? NAH, not in my opinion anyway. Here’s a few I happen to like :)  from my favourite designers . 

First, Lillian West

This beautiful gown is truly a fairytale. Available in ivory and white with its sweetheart neckline and pearl beaded cummerbund bodice which cinches the waist perfectly, tulle buttons drape the back and finishes with a long length train. 
This slim line lace gown features a mandarin neckline and cap sleeves, fitted and flared at the bottom. Tulle covered buttons which flow behind effortlessly also showing off the keyhole back, available in ivory and alabaster. 

My Second favourite designer is Caroline Castigliano

This gown offers something different (which I love) strapless corded lace bodice, diamante cluster brooch, sash and lace beaded completed with an organza skirt.

This silk fish tale style dress features a gorgeous crossover back with organza straps, corded lace bust cups and pleated cumber band, floaty, flowy, fabulous. 

And for you curvier brides Madeline Gardner has designed a stunning, flattering collection known as Morilee.

This gown really compliments the curvier woman, classic and elegant. Sweetheart neckline, crystal beads on a lovely soft net over Chantilly lace, available in ivory and white.

This gown features a gorgeous delicate detail on the bodice and lower half. Thick straps for that extra support and finishing with buttons down the back, a real stunning look available in white, silver, ivory and light gold.

Well, that concludes my favourite wedding gowns for all you future brides
