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....

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. 
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.

Avoid a fashion faux pas and follow the mantra, Less is More..

It's well known, and often quoted by top fashion designers, that beautiful clothes should enhance and compliment a woman's silhouette be emphasising one particular feature.  The most stunning, high end and luxurious of fashion does not integrate a low neckline with a bottom skimming low back and a thigh skimming high seam.  The classic 'Less is More' rings true and is even more important when choosing your wedding gown.

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.

The New Year brings many things with it, new resolutions, new brides-to-be, new styles and importantly a new start to improve upon everything from the previous year. Be happier, be richer, be skinnier, be healthier, be more adventurous, be less adventurous, speak my mind more, think before I talk more... the list goes on. 

One Size Fits All?? Not in Bridal

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.
