Perfect Bridal Lingerie For Your Wedding Day

I think I’ve mentioned a few times in the past here on Rock My Wedding that I’m more than a little bit enamoured with all things from the smalls drawer. Frilly knickers and lacy bras, balconettes and Brazilian briefs, thongs and French knickers, garters and bustiers…the list goes on.

But we all know for your actual wedding day, you need something a little more sensible and supportive than colourful, super pretty lacy numbers. I wanted a set of bridal lingerie that offered me support in all the right places for my big day, but not so robust that my guests could see every piece of wiring and boning underneath. It needed to be comfortable too…not a lot to ask then! Today we’re bringing you some expert advice from Lingerie specialists, Rigby & Peller, whose knowledge and service is unrivalled, with over 75 years at the top of their game and a Royal Warrant to boot.

The sheer choice of bridal lingerie available to brides can be overwhelming – I certainly found this to be the case in the lead up to my own big day – but that doesn’t mean that every style of bra or brief will be compatible with your chosen wedding dress design. Where to start? Which style will be suitable for your bridal gown? Rest assured, along with Rigby & Peller, we’re here to help with our handy guide and top tips below.

Four Beautiful Table Centrepiece Ideas For Your Wedding Day

One of my favourite activities leading up to my own wedding day was collecting masses of inspiration and planning my table centrepieces for my reception. Given that we were having a sit down meal and that my guests were likely to be sat in the same position for at least a couple of hours, I wanted to provide them with an abundance of pretty to look at on the table in front of them.

Beautiful And Unique Ways To Decorate Your Wedding Aisle

One of the many reasons I picked Love Lust List members Iscoyd Park as our wedding venue back for our October wedding over four years ago was the amazing space they called their ceremony room. With floor to ceiling windows and swooping arches and glistening chandeliers I knew that very little was needed to make this space truly sensational on my wedding day.

Beautiful Ideas On How To Integrate Gypsophila Into Your Wedding

Once the preserve of petrol garage forecourts (although I was always a fan even then!) Gypsophila has been making waves in the wedding world for a good five years now and the trend shows no sign of abating. It’s easy to see why the flower is so popular with brides, after all the bloom is very pretty and when used en masse it takes on the appearance of fluffy little clouds. Totally dreamy!

Perfect Blush Colour Themes For Your Wedding Day

One of the enduring wedding trends that continues to feature so frequently (even from the moment I joined Rock My Wedding back in 2012) is the blush colour theme. Piles upon piles of exquisitely framed images all using tones of peachy, pinky blush hues with a dash of gold here or a splash of dove grey there. And it never gets old. Not ever.

Well it doesn’t for me at least. In fact I don’t think that it’s a colour scheme that can be bested in terms of the romance, love and classic glamour that it imbues…plus it flatters all venues, all brides (yes and grooms too!), all settings and all seasons. The colour palette has versatility in spades.

How To Stylishly Theme Your Wedding Day With Animal Motifs

One of the enduring trends that has featured so heavily in the beautiful weddings we’ve showcased on the blog this year has been that of animals. Piles upon piles of exquisitely styled animals – from woodland rabbits and stags through to more exotic creatures such as flamingos and lions. And it’s a trend that looks set to continue into 2017 too.

Katie & Alistair

How utterly exquisite is the image of this morning’s beautiful maids dressed in blue with equally delicious pastel florals at the top?! Isn’t it wonderful!

I am in love with every single aspect of Katie and Alistair’s rustic farmyard wedding held at Brick House Farm that it’s impossible to know what to tell you about first. Let’s start though with Katie’s gorgeous gown – the Stacey by Modeca – which has tonnes of frothy, gorgeous, lace amazingness complete with blush pink bow. I know! Immense.

And then there’s the piles of hydrangea, the baby blue dining candles, the oversized balloons, the trestle tables and rustic buttonholes and the chintzy hay bales. It’s pastoral heaven.

All the action was snapped by the wonderful Frances Sales.

You have GOT to see the flowers in today’s decadently Autumnal wedding! I mean quick, start swiping through the amazing slider of beautiful images if you haven’t already to cast your eyes on some truly glorious centrepieces and one magnificent bouquet.

Cara and Rich decided to tie the knot at East Riddlesden Hall in Yorkshire accompanied by lashings of seasonal blooms, some seriously contemporary black and white striped decor and layers of festoon lighting.

I adore Cara’s heavenly smokey eyes, her mismatched bridesmaids and her rustic decor which is imbued with charm just like Cara and Rich themselves. All the fun and games and those beautiful sunlit portrait shots were captured by Photography34.

Ella & Tom

I’ve been lucky enough to attend an event at Kensington Roof Gardens in the past and can attest to its gloriousness so it’s easy to see why Ella and Tom picked it for their wedding day. Despite the amazing views, it’s easy to forget that you’re in a capital city once you set foot in this urban oasis. And yes there are ACTUAL flamingos.

The pair decided to celebrate their nuptials by paying homage to the venue itself choosing an art deco twist for their decor and using little accents of pink to tie in with the resident flamingos. Cute!! All the action was captured by Fiona Kelly Photography.
