Fab ideas for bride to be

We (brides) often wonder what the next big thing is going to be in the world of weddings. Well, we can’t keep up with them as there are so many. Here are some things I have come across that brides should be aware of when planning the big day.

 

Wed-Sites

Yes, you heard me right. A website that is built for your wedding and your wedding only. With the details of the day and where to stay, it’s a sure hit with guests these days. They can even suggest their favourite song to be played on the night. So this is a great way to compile a song list without doing all the hard research.

 

Redo your shoe

Redo your shoe is a spray for jazzing up your shoes. It can be hard to decide on shoes for the big day. After all, you will be wearing them for hours so you need something comfortable yet nice to look at. So, if you have your favourite shoes of all time, why not wear them? Invest in a tin of sparkly “redo your shoe” and voila you have brand new pimped out shoes. Perfect for the occasion.

 

The Wet Knot

What on earth is the wet knot? Well you know we live in a very wet country so its possible it could rain on your big day. How do you protect yourself from the rain without ruining the look of your dress? Invest in the latest bridal cover up-the Wetknot. This should be in every bride’s survival kit for a wet wedding.

Picking the dress is one of the hardest things to do for the wedding. Oh decisions decisions! You have spent hours browsing the internet and bridal magazines and have pinned dresses that you love. But wait, there is one problem. Will they suit your shape and frame? This is the key element to your dress. 

If you book an appointment with me, I will take you through the perfect style for you. What are the shapes for ladies?Image…here you will find out…

 

Neat Hourglass
This is where your bust is well defined and you have soft curves to your hips, bum and tum. Luckly this is the easy one and most shapes will flatter you as long as you have balanced proportions.

***    Shift
A Bias Cut dress will hide nothing, so it is a perfect choice for a neat hourglass

 

 
Full Hourglass
A Fuller bust to an neat hourglass, well defined waist, full hips and possibly a curvy bum. If you get a good fit on the hips you will often find the waist on skirts and trousers are too large. close fitting designs are your best fit.
*****  Fishtail
*****  Ballgown

A Ballgown dress is what dreams are made off and it is the perfect dress for you!

A Fishtail dress will emphasize your figure and create interest below the knees to give the wow factor.

 

Column

Rectangle
You may be full or flat chested and your rib cage seems to go straigth down to your waist. You have a flat bottom and hips and may carry a little weight around your middle. Straight styles are best for you, so find a dress that gives the illusion of a waist.

A shift dress will look striking with embellishment and detail.

If you have a large boned structure you will be able to scale up the details and accessorise.
