Picking a bridal outfit should be one of life's greatest gifts. But alas, the task is often overshadowed by too many choices and the forever looming question, what kind of bride do I want to be? Do you want a Meghan Markle-inspired classic boatneck, a mini-lace dress paired with sneakers like cool-girl bride Hailey Bieber, or perhaps you're more of a quirky bride like Sophie Turner, who opted for gold shoes and Elvis Presley glasses?

Whatever the case may be, finding pieces to suit the look you're going for creates its own set of problems. The new wedding edit at luxury retailer MATCHESFASHION is a one-stop-shop for everything bridal - no matter which one you turn out to be. Plus, the pieces are designs made to be worn more than once, making the search for that special item all the sweeter.
"We have noticed an increase in sales across our eveningwear and modern tailoring categories, particularly in monochrome tones. We wanted to create a dedicated area where our clients can find unique pieces for their wedding and special events that can be worn again for many years to come," Natalie Kingham, Fashion Buying Director, says. "We are thrilled to partner with some of our favourite designers on special collections for the launch, from Christopher Kane, Erdem and Giles to Stephen Jones and Molly Goddard."
With that, the edit considers its six main brides as muses to muses to encapsulate pieces for a wide spectrum of personal styles, including the Romantic, the Fashion Pioneer, the Curator, the Free Spirit, the Purist and the Warrior. Below, take a look at some of the different categories of bridal personalities.
Graceful yet grounded, the romantic bride style features relaxed silhouettes and romantic details like floral embroidery and lace ruffles.
The Fashion Pioneer
The bold and adventurous bride, always on the lookout for new and inventive ways to celebrate the tradition. From modern suiting to asymmetric necklines and beaded bags, forgo everything you previously thought about the big day.
Some brides enjoy the simplistic elements of bridal fashion - from sleek slips to classic points, there really is nothing that can beat traditional gowns and accessories.
