The BellaDonna Bridal Collection
The BellaDonna Bridal Collection was the inspiration of Award Winning Australasian Gown Designer ‘Wendy Makin’, Introduced in 1999, BellaDonna quickly took the market by storm with brides and boutiques realising the significance of Wendy's vision.
Initially designed by Wendy Makin the collection showed simple elegant lines with beautiful fabrics and delicate laces or beading, the BellaDonna collection quickly gained a dedicated following amongst brides which has been enhanced as the label has developed. The BellaDonna philosophy is forged from the Wendy Makin beliefs of making brides beautiful. To do this the team works tirelessly with retailers and brides honing the designs and developing the style of
the collection. From this co-operation the BellaDonna team has developed a much more wearable gown. Their accent is now on comfort for the bride rather than too much boning and structure which makes the gowns too heavy and uncomfortable. A lot of this development has also come from the labels reputation for “Destination Gowns”, as the fabrics and construction make them perfect for taking out of your suitcase to wear for your wedding with the minimum of fuss.
For the budget conscious bride, Wendy-Ann offers gorgeous, easy to wear gowns in soft chiffon. Styled for comfort, and these gowns have a simple elegance that won’t break the bank. The simplicity of the styling, with no train, or boning, makes them perfect for a beach wedding, or backyard celebration.
