Would you Tie The Knot in Topshop?

Wednesday, May 30, 2012   |   8 comments


Today, there is just one question that I want to ask you.

Would you get married in one of these dresses?



Topshop are hoping the answer is a resounding "YES!" - these frocks are part of the brand's collaboration with British designer Richard Nicoll to create an affordable, fashion-forward capsule bridal collection called Tie The Knot! for budget-conscious modern brides.

The long apron-alike number on the left is the collection's most expensive at £350, while the lacy short dress on the right clocks in at £170. Prices actually start at just £75 and the colour palette includes blush pinks in addition to the more traditional white.



I love Topshop and I'm definitely a fan of the idea of a cool high-street dress for your wedding day, be it specifically bridal or not, but these... Let's just say that the £75 short white dress looks like the most expensive rag of a slip I've ever seen.


What say you? Are any of these dresses calling your name?

    absofunkinlutely not! From what the model is wearing, if i had to choose one, I'd say the one on the right looks better. The dress on the left looks like badly sewn camisole or something. They all look so cheap, I can't believe they have the neck to charge £350 for some of them. Nah not my cup of tea. What do you think Lynnie, am i being mega harsh?

    Nope Sabrina, I think you're spot on! Doesn't the one on the model on the left look kinda like someone stapled a bit of an old net curtain onto the hem of a white apron..?

    I'm not into meringues, now, but this is madness.

    No, def not my cup of earl grey. I think most women want to feel special on their wedding day,whatever their preferred style of dress is and I can't imagine anyone feeling special in these, they look very overpriced for what they are.

    Ah here, even the model looks like she's thinking WTF. I'm sure topshop think they are being sooo modern and edgy, but they've lost the bleedin plot.

    The "HELL nos" have it, I think ;)

    bethand1 - YES! Bet "Granny nightdresses" won't appear in any of the hipster press coverage, where there's a lot of feverish swooning over this collection (seriously), but you're spot on :)
