First Look: Jenny Packham's New Bridal Collection Features Plus-Size Wedding Gowns

Wedding Dresses

Jenny Packham's Spring 2015 wedding dress collection is filled with the elements we (and label devotee Kate Middleton) have come to love: Streamlined silhouettes, elegant V-necks, and dazzling beading. Last season, the designer channeled the Belle Époque or 'beautiful era,' which transformed fashion, abandoning restrictive corsetry for flowing silhouettes — an influence that's still evident in the gorgeous gowns above.

We love the spring-appropriate short sleeves on each of these dresses, while the beading elevates the delicate fabric perfectly. It's Art Deco-meets-Old Hollywood, and the effect is simply stunning.

In an even more exciting turn, Packham showed figure-flattering gowns for plus-sized brides, like the one seen above, featuring her signature crystal detailing. But what sets this gown apart from the rest is its fluttery cape. It's a unique substitution for a veil, and it's a stylish way to cover up arms that aren't quite strapless wedding-dress ready.

From a cape that masks arms to sleeves that draw eyes to them! Packham demonstrates how to balance a simple silhouette with a standout detail. Here, the ruffled sleeves offer an avant-garde twist on a standard Packham style —figure-hugging and sleek, with a gorgeous brooch that nips in the waist.
