Category Archives: What To Wear
Do you live in London? Are you getting married? Are you free this Thursday 6th March? If so, then you need to get yourself to Fever London’s Wedding Fair.
Fever’s wedding stylist, Alice, will be on hand for fashion advice and the event will also be attended by Cakefully Yours, who will be showcasing their new collection of beautiful wedding cakes, and wedding hair and hat Designer, Alexyi Reneece. Jazz duo, Jazz In Paris Project will also be performing throughout the day.
The event is running from 12pm – 8pm at the Fever London Store (52-53 Eastcastle Street, W1W 8ED). On display will be dresses for weddings and occasion wear, all inspired by vintage design and round-the-world travel. I’ll pass you over to the Fever Team to tell you a little more about their SS14 collection.
There is sunshine outside, proper actual sunshine in February. I know, who would have thought it?
To celebrate this tiny window of Spring we’re sharing with you a super colourful bloom-packed extravaganza that should give you plenty of inspiration for your forthcoming wedding. I have always wanted to wear a full-on fresh flower crown, and it’s no secret that a backless number is my favourite type of dress, this feature therefore has been an absolute pleasure to put together.
I am particularly enamoured by the outdoors table set up, if only the UK weather could be relied upon to always offer the opportunity of table dancing amongst the crockery, pretty paper goods and stylish centre pieces, now that would make for a fun reception. Oh and a swing. Every W-day needs a swing.
All of the pretty images are by Katherine Ashdown.
If you have not yet heard of the brand What Katy Did Next then let us introduce you. Founded by Katy Howesion, she makes lots of lovely accessories for your wedding day. Today we are showcasing “The Reign Collection” which includes some particularly delicate and ethereal designs including a fingertip length veil with twinkling hand sewn star trim, birdcages with glitter and an array of beautiful feather, leaf and floral detail embellished with Swarovski pearls and crystals.
I am particularly taken with the Eugenie shoe clips, fern leaf silhouettes hand cut from Italian leather. Unique, modern and oh-so pretty.
If you haven’t heard of Kitty and Dulcie before then you will be unaware that their gowns are all priced at under £400.
Perfection for a bride on a budget or perhaps even a consideration for a second gown specifically for…. dancing? (you can never have too many dresses I say.)
This morning we are debuting their newest “Got The Love” collection, four flirty frocks, a pretty veil and a snazzy (yet super practical) jacket. We are also including some film footage which I think is particularly useful for seeing how the garments actually move.
All of you lovelies that are getting married this year (Does excited wave/embarrassing jig) may have already decided on your perfect accessories for W-day, you may have even bought them already.
And if you are very recently engaged (further excited waving and jigging action ensues) then well… have you even considered your accessories yet?!
From a personal perspective I enjoyed this aspect of planning very much indeed, every girl loves a bit of bling.
One of the things I love the most about the Christmas break apart from the copious amounts of Terry’s Chocolate Orange and feel good T.V. is hearing all of the heart-stoppingly romantic stories of you lovelies getting engaged. You see there’s something about the holidays that encourages folks to pop the question…in actual fact 1 out of 5 engagements take place between Christmas and NYE.
Completely-useless-but-actual-fact right there for you.
