One of Kate Middleton’s favourite high street brands now sells gorgeous (and affordable) wedding dresses

When it comes to weddings and occasion wear, L.K. Bennett has long been one of the first ports of call for the perfect show-stopping outfit. Now the British brand is taking it one step further, switching from wedding guests to the bride herself with their latest launch, a capsule collection of wedding dresses and bridal accessories.

This isn’t the first time L.K. Bennett have ventured into the bridal market though – in 2018, they teamed up with bridal and occasion wear designer Jenny Packham for a collection of gorgeous wedding shoes so it’s no surprise they’ve made the jump to a full bridal collection.

L.K. Bennett Bridal launches today

Wedding dress shopping can be one of the most stressful – not to mention expensive – parts of the preparation process so it’s no wonder that many brides are eschewing the traditional big designer frocks in favour of cheaper but equally chic off-the-peg options. Brands such as Rixo, Whistles and Phase Eight have all successfully launched their own wedding collections over the last decade, while online retailer ASOS launched theirs in 2015 and sold over 800 wedding dresses a day in spring 2021.

Launching today, L.K. Bennett’s venture into bridal is exactly what we’d expect – consisting of four beautiful dresses with prices starting from £799, they’re sure to be snapped up by stylish brides in the know.

Our favourite? The stunning cream silk Colette gown, which features a gathered front and self-stripe pattern on a diagonal, priced at £1,299.

With a distinctly vintage-inspired feel, the high-necked Lovette dress, £999, is the ideal winter wedding dress. With full-length sleeves and a corsage at the throat, as well as a delicate floral adornment across the fabric, this dress is definitely a chic cold climate option.

Meanwhile, the ivory Harlow dress features an on-trend statement collar, delicately puffed full sleeves, as well as a fitted silhouette finished with covered buttons giving it a designer bridal feel but with a price tag of only £999.
