5 Swoon-Worthy Special-Occasion Dresses We’d Love to Own

Matric ball. Wedding. Gala dinner… Kweening 👸 ⭐ 👗

‘Life is a party. Dress like it.’ Audrey Hepburn said that and we couldn’t agree more. Whether it’s a cute cocktail dress or a flowing evening gown; a beautiful dress makes an unforgettable statement.

Since 2008, Bride&co has been rocking the evening-wear scene. We browsed their collection and it’s glam for days. The 2018 collection is pure romance – designed for women who want to look nothing short of exquisite. International designers Viola Chan and Oleg Cassini are part of the Bride&co stable, and we lurv their work.

Don’t let the name fool you – Bride&co designs so much more than wedding dresses. It’s a destination for matric balls, gala events, formal dinners, and other special occasions (not that we ever need an excuse to dress up). We’ve chosen five swoon-worthy dresses that are oh-so-covetable. 

1 Bridal | Viola Chan

We’ll start with the show-stopper – a wedding dress by designer Viola Chan. The Viola Chan bride is confident and independent. She keeps it classy and elegant with a sultry edge and a dramatic air of mystery. Yes, please.

2 Bridal | Oleg Cassini

There’s something undeniably magical about the classic white wedding dress. The Oleg Cassini bride embodies a refined, sophisticated look with a touch of vintage appeal.

Matric Ball Dress | Viola Chan

OMG, this dress is everything. We love its figure-hugging silhouette and embellished bodice. In this dress, you’ll be the belle of the ball.

Gala Dinner | Oleg Cassini

This dress will make you look like you’ve floated straight out of a fairy-tale forest. Ethereal and ultra-femme, we love its flattering neckline and dazzling details. There’s no doubt about it – you’ll turn heads in this number.

Formal Dinner | Bride&co

Pleats. Double straps. Classic V-neckline. What’s not to love about this dress? Its classic silhouette and pastel colour make it an all-season staple that you’ll wear time and time again.

PS: Bride&co doesn’t forget about bae, Eurosuit has a range of suits for sale or hire. Ever wondered what bae would look like in a tux? Here’s your chance to find out.
