We are poised on the cusp of an exciting new year. 2016 promises new designs, colours and styles flooding in from our designers. Not only that, but weddings hats and increasingly, hatinators are being seen as the perfect way to complete an outfit. Let’s take a closer look at what to expect from three fabulous designers of dresses and the different ways each one has put their creative ideas into colour and fabric.
The way your dress fits is exactly what makes it so fantastic. This is why dress alterations are so common; to ensure the perfect fit for each individual. We are all unique and that means we are a variety of different shapes and sizes. Whilst dress designers try to cater for this, more often than not, a few tweaks from a seamstress can really make all the difference. Many women also change shape ever so slightly, between the time they purchase their outfit and the day of the event itself. Below we have shared some common types of dress alterations that you might require before the big day.
Even though it might feel like it, winter isn’t quite here yet, but it’s definitely on the way. The first official day of winter is the 22nd of December and despite the bitter cold English weather, it can be a lovely time for a wedding. If you’ve been invited to a winter wedding for the upcoming season and you’re not sure what to wear, we hope you find this article helpful.
As your involvement with the wedding will differ depending on a few things; your relationship with the couple, how much you want to be involved and how traditional the wedding is. If the couple have opted for something quiet and intimate, keeping the whole event very low-key, then there are far fewer things to organise and much less to be done on the day itself. We’ve compiled 5 things that you should be able to do, regardless of the scale of the wedding.
In the eyes of any mother, the moment that their son becomes a groom, is one of the proudest moments in your life. This is your son, who you’ve raised to be not only a great man, but a loyal husband and no doubt a father some day too. Every proud mother wants to be involved in their offspring’s wedding day and of course this includes the planning leading up to the event too.
The day you walk up the aisle with your family and friends watching on, will be the happiest day of your life. A day that no doubt will have taken months of planning, to ensure that everything is as special as you had imagined it to be. During the planning stages, it’s likely that some of the most important people in your life will have offered their advice and assistance, taking care of all the small things and keeping you calm and composed, as you slip on your wedding dress. But how do you thank these people adequately?
No outfit is complete without the perfect pair of shoes to finish it off. Once you’ve selected that beautiful dress and sparkled it up with some gorgeous accessories, it’s time to turn your attention to your shoes.
Dressing for a destination wedding can be difficult. If the couple are leaning away from the traditional church setting, you might be unsure about what sort of styles are appropriate and how you can fit in with the setting, but stand out as the beautiful Mother of the Bride.
