About Bride Chic

If you see yourself dressing for the ceremony in a totally different light than the reception I have some great news. Finnish born London transplant, Catherina Eden has premiered a new bridal line recently that adapts to the occasion. In her South Wimbledon Atelier called, My Eden, she creates gowns for brides who want to add or subtract layers as the party goes on... convertible wedding dresses that will take your breath away! She offers wedding dresses that work one way for the ceremony, and, like a layer of veil, are removed or readjusted for the wedding reception. Say you want a formal look for your ceremony and picture yourself in a skirt with organza falling into a chapel train as you walk down the aisle. For your reception however, you want something totally different: a sheath—like something you might wear to a cocktail party. And these photos show just that. Go ahead. Wear that sheath for your ceremony; only wear it under a detachable organza over skirt. By reception time you have a short sheath/cocktail dress to party hearty in. Every piece offered in the collection is made in an eco-friendly way. Catherina cares passionately about ethics and the environment. All of My Eden's gowns are made in her London Atelier using only the best natural fibers and eco-friendly cottons. And here's the start to a tradition I've never heard of... 'We have developed a unique alternative for bulky petticoats that are too big to store and are seldom used again. We urge all our clients to dispose of their petticoats in a novel and romantic way. With every order we include a special bag of My Eden Forget Me Not seeds and a planting guide. Why not plant your petticoat in a special place, wait to see your own flowers grow and enjoy all the amazing memories again and again?' What do you think of the My Eden gowns?
