The Best Bohemian & Alternative Wedding Dresses in Surrey

Papillon_2019_Eva_afront.jpg

It’s no secret that in our boutique we like a bit of colour and dresses that have a little bit of ‘je ne sais quoi’ about them. Colours, patterns, textures - it’s all good and all very welcome in our Surrey bridal shop. When we first decided to launch BRIDE by Aster in spring 2018, we knew that we wanted to have a great variety of dresses. All shapes, textures, colours, patterns. Designers you have never heard of from all over the world who don’t necessarily follow the bridal trends.

If I’m honest, my personal style is more bohemian, floaty and whimsical, but I have such a massive appreciation for design and adore ballgowns and mermaid dresses alike. Here are a list of my TOP 10 BEST BOHEMIAN WEDDING DRESSES currently available in our Surrey bridal boutique.

In no particular order, here we go…

EVELYN

EVELYN is a dramatic trumpet lace gown in a stunning shade of nude with a beautiful contemporary vintage style lace covering the whole dress. Her detailing is exquisite and she is formal yet relaxed, romantic, soft and truly striking. EVELYN by Modeca can be dressed up or down, but we love her for a boho wedding in Surrey, with rustic flowers and a symphony of colour.

ESMEE

One of our most dramatic wedding dresses in store is ESMEE by Modeca. She is a magnificently unique wedding dress in shades of ink black and layers of ivory, complimented with navy blue lace applique. Her overall effect is sometimes navy and sometimes grey; that’s the beauty of her, you can never quite tell! The lace applique are made from exquisite sculpted birds as well as romantic florals. If you want a statement wedding dress, ESMEE could be the one!

ATHENS

The true meaning of ‘boho’ comes out to play in our gown ATHENS by Anny Lin. She shimmers and moves like a fairy, has the most uniquely detailed bodice we’ve ever seen, and has the most delicious lace skirt that floats in the breeze. Her skirt and bodice have a layer of champagne tuille to add warmth and colour and to make the delicate lace stand out in ivory. Not convinced? She comes with signature see-through pockets! Game. Set. Match.

FLEUR

Fancy making an entrance to end them all? FLEUR is your dress. Stiflingly beautiful in an abundance of pink and purple florals printed onto a raw silk skirt, FLEUR is finished off with a hand embelssihed bodice and skirt using Swarovski crystals. Her bodice has visible corsetry which is bang on trend, and her sheer back is perfection. She has a super long train and packs the ultimate fairytale punch!

ELEANORA

A favourite wedding dress in our Surrey based bridal shop is ELEANORA. She is a quintessential fairytale ballgown in shades of pink, blue and ivory, giving her an overall shade of lavender. She has floral appliques accented with shades of champagne, salmon and petrol blue and has so many delicious layers of the softest and most indulgent tuille, she could very well be fattening.

DEMETRIA

Floaty, feminine, understated, a little bot of lace, no sparkles and totally dreamy, DEMETRIA by Modeca is the epitome of bohemian elegance. Throw on a flower crown and a pair of fabulous boots or sandals and you’re ready for the aisle! DEMETRIA has gorgeous lace straps, a sexy plunging neckline, exquisite low back and a beautiful sheer lack waistband. The pleated chiffon is hopelessly feminine and chic and she is one of our favourites!

EMMA

One of the most delicious colours for a wedding dress in 2020 is mocha. It is rich, warm, romantic and so bohemian I could cry. EMMA by Modeca has large lace applique detailing and a fitted lace bodice over a delicious mocha gown. There are two layers of lace adding another dimension to this intricate gown and it’s train is understated and so elegant.

EVA

Long sleeves, pink, lace, low back…..EVA by Modeca is a bohemian dream come true! She is a stunning shade of mink below her layers of warm ivory tuille and is detailed with pink, champagne and ivory applique flowers. She has a plunging mink bodice that is discreetly covered with the most delicate lace and her back plunges to a deep V to reveal a little skin.

ARIEL

Another totally unique Anny Lin creation, ARIEL is truly one of a kind. She sparkles in a shade of champagne, has the most glorious back detailing I think I’ve ever seen on any dress AND she has wings! For a truly unique, totally fairytale wedding dress, ARIEL could be the one for you!

EDEN

EDEN by Modeca has an altogether vintage bohemian feel. She is effortless, chic, glamorous yet totally relaxed. Her incredible elbow length sleeves are pure indulgence and her unique patterning make her one truly to be rivalled with. Make EDEN vintage with a gatsby style headpiece or truly bohemian with a savage flower crown!
