Real Weddings

Jun 7, 2018

Mothers of the bride everywhere know how important it is to help their daughter pick out a wedding dress. At John Charles we believe that choosing their own dress is just as important! We rounded up our favorites, from all different types of weddings and for all different types of mothers.

With an illusion neckline and pearlised detailing this style is a real new addition which visibly benefits from John Charles’ over 50 years of craftsmanship. Crafted in Mikado, this design has a beautiful sheen when it catches the light.

The wide cut flatters every silhouette and by being immaculately pleated from the waist, the shape is perfectly feminine.

Styled with one of our statement, coordinated hats this outfit is in perfect harmony.

High octane glamour.

Inspired by Old Hollywood, this stretch jacquard dress is defined by its exquisite shape which is classically feminine and fitted.

The wide shoulder detail flatters elegantly, drawing the eye to the sheer, pearlised illusion neckline beneath.

Our co-ordinated wide brim hat with statement bow complements the divine shoulder detailing for an unforgettable look.


In Lace & Lux Mikado, this dress is feminine sophistication defined.

The striking wide Mikado A-line is the first thing that catches your eye about this beautiful design. With a soft sweetheart neckline, the tonal lace top is embellished with subtle tonal beading on the floral vines.

The simple, co-ordinated fascinator keeps this look classic.

Harmonious in it’s mix of soft pastel crepe and sumptuous hand-painted metallic lace, this style is one to be remembered.

The simply flattering shape highlights the sensational asymmetric lace embroidery by framing the hips and adorning the sleeves.

The delicacy of this floral pattern is breathtaking, with the hand-painted details offering a couture touch to your occasion look.
