Finding THE perfect bridal gown to suit your silhouette and personal taste can seem like a daunting task, but it really doesn’t need to be complicated. In fact, it’s quite simple! It’s all about choosing a gown that accentuates your best features and makes you feel truly amazing. So, stay calm and let your Enzoani fairy godmother guide you through the wonderful world of bridal, as we introduce you to some of our favourite silhouettes and trends of 2019.
Glitz and Glam
If you’re obsessed with everything glamourous and glittery, then the 2019 Enzoani collection is the perfect place to start your search. Many of the Enzoani styles are adorned with glittering sequins and gorgeous, intricate beadwork and crystal buttons. These fairy-tale worthy gowns are designed to glitter and shine with movement, creating a dream-like vision as you glide down the aisle or dance the night away.
For ‘triangle’ shapes (broader shoulders with narrower hips), A-line gowns such as Nellie, Nile or Nadine will streamline your figure, and a plunging V-neckline will flatter broad shoulders, so keep this in mind when selecting your ultimate shimmer dress. We love how the glamorous, full-length glitter tulle cascades down the length of the Nellie skirt and creates sparkle and shine as it swirls!
Alternatively, a ball gown silhouette has layered fabrics below the waistline which will flatter 'pear' shapes (hips wider than shoulders) by shaping the top half of the body and drawing attention to the waistline. The Nalee ball gown features a beautiful unlined bodice with plunging sweetheart neckline which is ultra-feminine and will also complement a smaller bust.
If you’re rocking an 'hourglass' figure, then these full-length, mermaid showstoppers could be your perfect match. The Nicky and Nikita gowns are perfect for a beach wedding as their unique embroidered patterns and eye-catching sequins will glimmer with elegance in the sun. The figure-hugging shape, illusion bodice and illusion side panels of the Nicky gown are a little more daring, while the thin, beaded band creates a flattering and flirtatious back. Brides-to-be who love all things glitter and want to show off their curvy contours are destined to fall head over heels for an Enzoani mermaid gown.
Ladies looking for something a little more unconventional and unique can rely on the 2019 collections for some gorgeous vintage vibes. The Leonora gown has a high neckline and beautifully intricate, laced long sleeves which are perfect for ‘triangle’ figures and taller brides. This timeless style is balanced with modern illusion embroidered lace and a flirtatious figure-enhancing shape.
For brides-to-be who adore lace but want a modern style and like to show off a bit more skin, the Lillium gown features an exquisite plunging V-neckline and a delicate triangle back. A layer of soft and detailed Chantilly lace gives Lillium the illusion of being as light as air, making this gown perfect for summery boho-inspired weddings.

Now, let us whisk you away to the 1920’s in this Great Gatsby-inspired gown - Neville. This gown will accentuate and define your waist, which is perfect for 'hourglass' or 'pear' shapes. The beaded all-over lace and scalloped hem of the skirt is effortlessly elegant and oh so timeless from top to bottom. Strapless gowns will also beautifully elongate your silhouette, so Neville is perfect for petite figures.

Statement trains continue to strongly influence the Enzoani collections. One of the signature looks of 2019 has been created by combining uniquely designed embroidered laces with elegant, high-quality stretch georgette material and flowing lace trains. Gowns such as Lena, Lainey, Linda, and Luz are extremely figure-flattering and the perfect statement style for an eye-catching wedding photo. Each of these gorgeous Blue by Enzoani gowns has its own unique take on this signature style, which offers the modern bride the option to select the gown that best fits her own personal style. The choice is yours!
These long cathedral trains appeal to a lot of brides as they tend to suit most figures, so really, all you need to think about is whether or not it will suit your wedding location. If you’re tying the knot in your back garden, then a cathedral train might look a bit over the top and be impractical in a small space. However, if you’re planning on securing a luxurious location with lots of space and a long aisle to walk down – then a statement train is a MUST! This style of gown will be your wedding photographer's best friend as it looks INCREDIBLE in photos, especially cascading down a grand staircase.
