Motasem's Alaya dress - the perfect fit ...

Last Friday we thought Pippa Middleton looked radiant in her slinky cowl neck maid of honour dress, almost overshadowing the Royal Bride. And it just so happens that London based label, Motasem Bridal, one of our favourite partners, already has just the thing in their collection.


The Alaya dress, designed by Sabina Ali, is a highly flattering bias-cut cowl neck dress made in that beautiful crepe silk. Perfect as it is, the Alaya dress can also be produced with bespoke detailing such as cap sleeves, a little lace and puddle train, enough to make any bride feel like a princess on her special day.

Priced from £695, it’s the perfect choice for green brides on a budget looking for a classy, understated wedding dress. The Alaya dress is available to order from a sample collection at Motasem's London studio and delivered within 5 weeks.
