We're going to let you in on a little secret: Whistles (a fashion brand adored by Kate Middleton herself) just added three new wedding dresses to its bridal collection and they're so gorgeous, you won't even believe how affordable they are.
Known for its contemporary aesthetic, Whistles's pieces are timeless, versatile and effortlessly cool—and its wedding dress edit is no exception. "We always aim to cater for a broad range of women with varied lives and professions, so the same applies when it comes to wedding designs," creative director Nick Passmore tells Brides. "The Whistles bride is a modern woman who is stylish yet understated. This is a truly considered collection which we hope appeals to all brides and suits all occasions, whether that be a registry office, a city wedding, a beach wedding or a more traditional affair in the countryside."
Each design, including the eight pre-existing styles, is inspired by and named after different romantic heroines. The "Maria," which features a halter neck and open back, pays homage to the iconic The Sound of Music star; the "Mia," a figure-skimming silky satin gown, is straight out of La La Land; and the lace bardot neckline dress dubbed "Melba" channels the Two Weeks With Love character from the 1950 film.

"Maria, Mia and Melba are vibrant characters who perfectly reflect the mood and aesthetic of the designs," shares Passmore of the latest inspiration. "We are consistently looking for ways to evolve the collection and designing three additional designs felt instinctive."
Whether your wedding aisle is the hallway of a courthouse or the grasses of a garden, the Whistles wedding collection has you covered. Scroll through for your first look at the latest styles and the rest of the collection.
