Having said, ‘YES’ to your partner whilst he’s down on one knee, is just the beginning of a wonderful journey. We understand the importance of weddings and want to make the planning process inspirational, exciting and stress-free; there’s no room for bridezilla!

When it comes to choosing the perfect wedding gown, the process may seem initially daunting. Questions like, ‘where do I begin?’ ‘Shall I go for ivory or classic white?’ ‘What shape and style best suit my body type?’

DMW have got your back and have selected our favourite wedding gowns for this Spring/ Summer Season.
