Category Archives: What To Wear
This afternoon we’re checking in with our Bridal Fashion Pack members to find out which of their dresses they would recommend for a destination wedding. You can find their latest collections in the Bridal Fashion Collections tab above.
Whether you are getting married on the beach with a bohemian ceremony, at a rustic retreat in the Mediterranean countryside or at a slick and chic city centre hotel – the lovely Fashion Pack ladies have got a dress for you.
Belle & Bunty, Charlotte Balbier, Johanna Hehir, Wednesday Roses, Halfpenny London, Naomi Neoh and Suzanne Neville are all designers with a strong individual identity and between them they have dresses for all budgets, tastes, and with it being international week on RMW – all locations too!
So, as always, we want to know which dress is your favourite? Are any of you lucky enough to be having a delicious destination wedding? Are any of you wearing gowns by one of these amazing designers? Don’t worry, you don’t have to disclose which particular style, but we’d love to know who you’re wearing and where you’ll be wearing it.
And if anyone happens to be wearing one of these dresses in the location the designer has recommended…then please do tell!!
These really are the ultimate gowns for destination weddings, handpicked by our Fashion Pack members.
This afternoon we’re venturing into wedding fantasy land. French wedding fantasy land to be precise. Which is definitely a wonderful place to be.
This dreamy inspiration shoot comes from the lovely Louise at B.Loved who always sends us the prettiest, most romantic inspiration features.
Think blowsy roses, lashings of sage green foliage, delicate hearted shaped macarons, tiny gold forest animals and the most beautiful, unashamedly feminine Johanna Hehir gowns.
And if you loved the photography from this mornings wedding, then you’ll be pleased to know that this shoot was captured by the same photographer. Yes, Anneli Marinovich really is a super star.
Enjoy the pretty lovely ones.
Despite the glimmer of Spring we’ve seen over the last few weeks, it would seem that Winter isn’t quite ready to disappear just yet…
We’ve got a gorgeous inspiration shoot this afternoon that will actually make you sad that Winter is on it’s way out. Seriously – I’m a sun worshipper through and through, but the thought of a crackling log fire always makes me hanker after the colder half of the year.
I’m particularly loving the strong make up looks created by Jodie Hazlewood and now have a very strong urge to reach for the glitter, put on my best frock and sit in a large window looking out over my grounds…
Obviously with a sparkly headpiece from Debbie Carlisle in my hair.
So let’s light some candles, get snuggled up in front of the fire and make the most of the final throws of Winter.
Kate Halfpenny is often regarded as an industry secret (although now she’s on these very popular pages not so much anymore!) and has worked with celebrities such as Rihanna and Kate Moss, creating show stopping gowns for high profile award ceremonies such as the Bafta’s and The British Fashion Awards.
Kate has a BA (Hons) in womenswear and combined with a Masters from St. Martins her bridal collection was finally launched in 2005 after Emilia Fox wore two couture bridal gowns designed by Kate to her wedding. Last summer saw Kate Halfpenny open her first flagship boutique “Halfpenny London” in Bloomsbury’s Woburn Walk, think glittering mid-century glass chandeliers, original panelled walls and an abundance of beautiful gowns hung from copper rails.
Yes. You need to pay a visit lovelies.
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.
