2020 may not have been the best year for weddings, but 2020 wedding dresses have made extensive strides when it comes to inclusivity. Katharine Polk Bridal is the latest bridal line to join the ranks of new brands with every body in mind. Houghton founder and designer Katharine Polk’s debut bridal collection launched earlier this week in sizes 00 through 30. Her inspiration was, of course, real brides with whom she’s worked on custom gowns for over the years as well as looks voted on by loyal IG followers. The line is truly a people’s choice venture!
Capes and charming arm details—think billowy, puffy sleeves and even one design with an arm chain—take center stage here. Prices range from $500 to $4,650, so you’re likely to find a style that fits your budget and taste. And if you don’t see something you like now, check back again next month because new styles of bridal and ready-to-wear pieces will be added monthly.
Oh, and here’s a sweet deal for savvy shopping brides: Polk’s newly launched shoppable website offers Shop-pay, enabling brides to make payments toward their purchases. Bridal orders typically ship within four to six weeks.
Did we mention Katharine Polk Bridal is ran by a team of women? “I couldn’t be prouder to be a self-funded and completely female-run company. Although you can't please everyone, I am committed to working hard to create something for everyBODY,” Polk shared in a press release.
If you’re as excited as we are, check out the styles you can shop right now below. Then go to Katharinepolk.com to see a sneak peek of Polk’s Friday to Sunday: Easy, effortless pieces designed for the whole wedding weekend, including denim, tees, lingerie, swim, accessories, and bachelorette gifts.
Two words: Greecian goddess. The arm chain detail here is unmatched!
We can't stop staring at these easy, breezy sleeves (and your wedding guests won't be able to stop staring at them as you come down the aisle, either).
The puffy sleeve styles of the '80s are back with a few upgrades like this tasteful back cut-out.
If you're that bride looking for her Cinderella moment—here it is!
And if casual is more your speed, then look no further than Karmen.
It's all about the décolletage with the Lexi. Stunning, no?
Whether you slip into this sexy little number for dress no. 2 of the celebration, or come straight out the gate wearing it, you can't go wrong.
Let's be honest—who doesn't love a good cinch at the waist?
We were sold on this style as soon as we saw the pockets.
Talk about drama! This caped gown has plenty of it for your big day.
