For many brides, the time between the poignant proposal and magical matrimony is consumed with event planning, guest list organising, theme choosing, budget juggling, cake tasting, hen party problem solving and most importantly DRESS FINDING.  Surprisingly what a lot of brides seem to forget is that they actually have a groom, a partner who they plan to spend the rest of their life with after the wedding day, for which the day is just as important.

If you want to plan a wedding right, plan it AS yourself.... This statement sounds shockingly obvious but the reality is that so many brides get caught up, frustrated with and overwhelmed by the traditional running order of a wedding simply because it's the norm and what people expect.

Health and fitness advice goes through just as many styles as fashion and food trends.  To try and stay up to date with the newest fad would break the commitment of even the fittest of the fit and would wreck complete havoc with your body, your mind and your metabolism.  Not what anyone, especially an already stressed bride-to-be needs to put themselves through.
A wise woman once told me, 'It's all about foundation.  It doesn't matter how much you spend on an outfit, if the under garments aren't good, it will look like tat. Always invest in good lingerie.'  This piece of motherly advise always stuck with me and how incredibly true it was. Unfortunately not everyone was told the same thing...

Before you get engaged the engagement itself poses so many questions, 'how will he do it, where will he do it, will he have a ring, will I know when he's about to do it?...'. So many questions that can all be answered with the four words, 'Will You Marry Me?'.  But while you were thinking up 101 exciting engagement scenarios, what you didn't realise was that the real un-answered questions and unknowns are only about to appear once you say 'Yes'.

Trends are always coming full circle, but rarely as often to trends reappear as in bridal.  One trend that seems to be back in full swing and firmly here to stay is the wedding gown train.  From royalty to celebrity, think Kate Middleton's to Kim Kardashian's, trains are back on the aisle!  Here's what you need to know about the different train lengths and their appropriateness.

What's really remembered about a wedding day...

It's ever so easy to become submerged and entrapped by all the add on's that you can include in your wedding day.  Needless to say the 'add on's' are also the elements that can dramatically increase the spend and push your budget into the stratosphere.  Let's be honest, when the time comes and it's time to actually plan your wedding day, we all want the day to be the most memorable, special, unique, romantic and atmospheric event of the year...if not of the decade.  But at what point do you stop, sit back and prioritise what constitutes a wonderful wedding  and not just a wonderfully large bill?

Say Yes to the Dress and No to Opinions..

People talk about that moment every bride-to-be has, the moment when shopping for your bridal gown that you step into not just ‘a’ gown, but ‘the’ gown.  The moment that you look at yourself and say, ‘this is it, this is the one, this is the gown I’m going to walk up the aisle and get married in’, is not one to be underestimated.  This choice reflects you as an individual woman and you as a bride, it also is the outfit that will traverse you from this single to married status and is the gown that you will be wearing when you think or look back on your wedding day for the rest of your life.

One Size Fits All is as generic a phrase as you can get, but in no industry has it less relevance than in Bridal.  A brides shape will always be slightly unique to her, merge that difference with an individual style and her unique preferences and the idea of a 'one size fits all' approach is nothing short of impossible.

A full length veil has been synonymous with a bride and wedding dress for many years.  The typical cathedral veil with it's extensive length and volume proving the most popular and predictable over time.  With such exciting strides being made with new styles, fusions and creative designs in the bridal couture sector, it is about time that the world of veils and headpieces has received a breathe of fresh air and individuality.

A wedding day is meant to represent the union of two lovebirds in front of family and friends, remembered as the most special day in any couples lives. It has long since evolved from just a day into what is now a full scale event. Even the term 'Wedding Planner' has now been replaced with 'Event Coordinator'.
