    Okay so I'm not a fan of Topshop normally, although you can find sometimes really nice pieces of clothing most of the clothes are ugly and is it just me or do their dresses have really unflattering cuts?

    Now imagine my surprise when I found out that Richard Nicoll was designing a bridal range for Topshop. Now imagine my horror when I actually saw these dresses.

    I'm used to Topshop having ugly dresses but these just take the cake. I don't think that ANY bride would be seen dead in these dresses:

    So what do you think TSR fashionista's- do you think these dresses should never see the light or day or do you think their a " a modern affordable alternative to meringue culture"????

    People who wear those are only wearing it for the brand name, they don't really care what the dress looks like. I would never be seen dead in that on my wedding day :/

    What brand name? Why would you do that with a £200 dress?
    As for the dresses themselves, I quite like a couple of them, but more for bridesmaid dresses than wedding dresses. I can see why people would wear them though, they're understated.

    Top****e is ****e anyways.

    Be it wedding dresses or not. They're just making money from the whole sheep-clone population, as they know people will buy those dresses because top**** is 'oh so cool'.

    right, and you buy all your clothes from one off boutiques; and only wear one-offs?
    Stop being so anti-trendy, it's boring.

    I wouldn't wear them on my wedding day, they're absolutely vile. I wouldn't even let my bridesmaids wear them. I saw this article this morning and to be honest I am utterly shocked by them - a wedding is meant to be the best day of your life, these dresses honestly look like something I'd wear to bed.

    I do like topshop, however I think it's overpriced.
    These dresses are hideous though! I wouldn't dream of wearing this on my wedding day.

    I physically cannot buy clothing from topshop as it seems to only make clothing for the flat chested.

    And for the majority of the time I do actually either make my own or buy from charity/vintage shops.
    If I do spend money I'd rather spend it on designer that every second person in the street will not be wearing.

    And a £350 dress from Topshop? For real? I'd rather spend the money on Gant.

    I wouldn't let my bridesmaids wear them at all - and certainly I wouldn't wear any for my wedding.

    Ugh!

    Some of them are quite pretty but I think they are too "fashionable" for a wedding (especially that floaty one!) I'm sure a bride would wonder what she was thinking 20 years on.

    Yeah... Would not be seen dead in something like that on my wedding day :hand: The one that the model is wearing could be quite nice for bridesmaids, on the right person and at the right type of wedding.

    The pink ones are all vile, mainly because the weird thread detailing on them looks like spider veins :lolwut:

    It looks like it's more a publicity stunt than any thing else, like asdas 17p valentines day card.
    (thats a don't tell the bride i'd like to see if the groom proposed using asda smart price card and bought her a top shop dress to wear)
