Anyone who has read this blog for a few months should know that I am always on the hunt for swiss dot. I love the stuff, particularly in wedding gowns. It seems others are catching on to my addiction, so I thought I'd post a few of my favorites here.
We have Lily, the original dotted bride, wearing gorgeous Carolina Herrara. Photo by Thayer Allison Gowdy.
Currently, two bridal lines account for most of the swiss dot options, and each of those lines has a more famous design. The first is Melissa Sweet's "Dora," photographed here by Jasmine Star.
This lovely bride, photography by Sloan Photographers, is also wearing the "Dora." See more from this wedding here!
Another Dora, this time photographed by Raya Photography. See more here.
I love that this shot of the Dora shows off the pretty detailing along the bust. So gorgeous! Photo by Orchard Cove. See more here! Melissa Sweet has one other design that features swiss dot, the "Gigi."
The other swiss dot line is Christos. My favorite of the bunch is the "Maribel". Here's a bride that chose Miss Maribel, photographed by Jen Curtis:
Christos also carries the "Lydia", the "Zinnia", and the "Desiree", all of which are dotted numbers.
For those interested in a short dress, I have to recommend the "Elope" dress by Sarah Seven. At $755, it's not cheap, but it's also considerably less than some other options out there.
If you're interested in accenting your look with a dotted accessory, I've got inspiration for you, too! I love this shot from Jonathan Canlas:
I could be mistaken, but I think she's wearing the "Dotted Voile Veil" from BHLDN.
I also love this adorable yet stylish bow comb from BHLDN:
For vintage lovers, I recommend this cap or this cap from Twigs & Honey (gorgeous photo below by Elizabeth Messina).
Lastly, a few current preowned dress listings for those of you who, like me, adore the Dora and Maribel but can't afford to buy new:

Happy hunting! Now, make me jealous: did you wear either of these dresses (or anything swiss dotted, for that matter) at your wedding?
