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 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.
We hear it time and time again, fashion forward brides-to-be who would love to wear a wedding gown that is a bit different and unique, something that wouldn’t necessarily look out of place on a catwalk but would be just as show-stopping for your journey down the aisle.
It would seem that more often than not however that many of you don’t even necessarily try what could be the dress of your dreams. And we are not entirely sure why that is exactly.
Is it because others (friends, family, work colleagues, anyone who fancies putting their two pennies worth in) have already laid down the rules of what you should wear as a bride?
Is it because you just don’t think certain styles would suit you?
Is it because you have your own deep rooted ideals of what you should wear for the big day regardless of what might make your heart sing?
Whatever the reason, we thought we would invite some of our fashion pack members to discuss some of their own designs that are not on their “bestseller” list. Hidden Gems if you will.
We’ll then invite you gorgeous lot to leave your comments on the featured frockage and why you have chosen the number that you have (or the one you are at least thinking of!)

Those of you who are regulars to these glorious pages of wedding pretty will no doubt be aware of my attempts to offer advice and big day succor to you through the medium of these ‘Ask Lolly’ posts.
Charlotte actually chatted about our decision to make this a regular feature in her post last week and from the overwhelming response to our Ask Lolly inbox, we’re guessing that you folks wholeheartedly approve.
This week I’ll be attempting to soothe the furrowed brow of the lovely Lorna who has got her knickers in a twist about her wedding lingerie (sorry Lorna I just couldn’t resist!).
Take it away Lorna…
I’m struggling and need your help! Having been happily planning our wedding for the past year, I’m struggling to find the right underwear to purchase for ‘the wedding night’ and/or to take on honeymoon. Just in case we end up a bit too drunk/keen/excited/forgetful and I don’t manage to change out of my wedding dress into said underwear on the wedding night.
My wedding dress doesn’t actually need any underwear to go with it, as it perfectly holds me in on its own. However, for this reason I really want an amazing set of underwear to have for my wedding night. But can I even work out where to start – nope.
I don’t really want it to be white and overly complicated – no peep holes and nipple tassels for this bride. All hints and tips appreciated, especially as our wedding is 4th January and I want to try and get myself organised before hosting Christmas for the family at our new house. It’s been a busy 2013!… View the full post.
One of my favourite parts of a real wedding feature is the “getting ready” images of the bride. There is something so beautiful and unique about those moments, the anticipation, the joy – it’s almost like you are being allowed to share a special behind-the-scenes secret.
Stylist and wedding planner Louise Beukes from B.Loved has essentially re-created this scenario and has incorporated some beautiful and feminine boudoir-esque scenes to produce an extraordinarily pretty and unique inspiration shoot.
Rock My Wedding Sponsor Fiona Kelly captured all of the blooms, the delicate and exquisite Ell and Cee lingerie and the dreamy interiors of The George in Rye to perfection. And the colour scheme is just to die for – I can see these images being pinned to within an inch of their life.
Louise at B.Loved: Photographer Fiona Kelly and I shared a vision; to create an undeniably feminine and pretty shoot that captured the dream-like anticipation of a bride getting ready on her wedding morning. We’re both hugely influenced by the beautiful work of Elizabeth Messina, and wanted to capture our version of romantic and beautiful boudoir - without the overtly sexual look often associated with boudoir photography.
I picked a very pared-back palette, using lots of soft ivory, peach and blush tones with the slightest hint of sage green to create an overly romantic and girly look with a grown-up quality.
It was designed to be quite editorial, picking out individual details and beautiful poses to create a very ethereal and dream-like effect.… View the full post.
