Two-piece gowns
Two-piece styles are all the rage in fashion these days – including bridal wear! We love how versatile they can be: mix and match different options for a look that's just 'you'. And for a hint of understated sexiness, pair a lace crop top with an ethereal tulle skirt – pure princess perfection.

Sexy backs
Demure in the front, sexy in the back: we're all for showing a little skin with a super flattering backless wedding gown. And in Singapore's sweltering heat, a plunging back is also a smart, fashion-forward option.
