We see it everywhere. We see it in many different forms from Dresden to Chantilly. Yes, I’m talking about lace. We love a lace gown here at RMW and as fashions change and grow and develop so does and will this magical world of lace. And we’re very excited about it.
Someone else equally as excited about this is Chloe from The White Room and she’s here to tell you lovely lot more about new trends and how to work this beautiful material to your advantage.
Chloe teamed up with photographer Cat Hepple to bring this gorgeous shoot to our pages.
Creativity And Styling
Chloe from The White Room: The concept of the shoot was to embrace the huge trend for lace within the industry but try to bring it to a modern and fashionable edge, allowing elements of lace to be present without necessarily being the whole gown, adding hints of colour or quirky touches to make it more than just ‘another lace dress’. We wanted to really bring to the forefront the femininity and softness of the gowns and show that less, can be more and a little creativity and styling.
What I love about the designers stocked at The White Room is just that, their ability to design a gown with the overall end look in mind, selecting the fabric which makes the gown so special, rather than sticking bits of lace on a gown and expecting brides to buy into the ‘vintage lace’ dress. They have thought with detail about what lace suits each cut of gown and what is needed to make a bride fall in love with quality, style and design.… View the full post.
There’s something about this time of year that makes me seek out a whole new look – a kind of spring clean on the fashion and beauty front so to speak.
Be it a wardrobe sort-out, a spree at the Chanel make-up counter or a new haircut, you can bet your bottom dollar I’ll be participating in a full on hair and beauty make-over as soon as the clocks have gone forward.
And so with the return of blue skies and sunshine and the feeling of warmth on your face (I know folks, Spring might actually be here!) I have no greater pleasure in sharing the latest (and hottest!) round of glorious inspiration for your big day bonce.
Hell, why even wait? Why not try out some of these chic looks in the run-up to your nuptials – at your hen for example or even down the pub with friends.
Which one will be your favourite?
Much like the popular return to more traditional wedding dress shapes and styles à la K-Mid,we’re seeing more and more brides revisiting classic hairstyles for their big day too…albeit with a 21st century twist.
Top knots were huge last year and whilst they’re still in vogue, the lower simplistic chignon is the updo making waves right now.
We do love an alternative colour palette here at RMW HQ, especially one that is both opulent and pretty. Stylist Elisabetta at Linen and Silk chose teal with accents of gold set against a neutral back-drop of white on white.
The gowns and statement jewellery are divine, such perfect choices for the romantic location of Ranger’s House. I defy any of you not to fall in love with the tulle polka dot and the intricate statement cuff – I know I have.
Elisabetta offers plenty of useful styling and planning tips throughout the post so make sure you grab yourself a cup of tea and a biscuit (or um…a few biscuits) and drop any styling questions or queries in the comment box below.
Enjoy you gorgeous lot you.
Elisabetta from Linen and Silk Weddings: The inspiration behind this photoshoot came about when I visited the actual location of this shoot – Ranger’s House. This opulent Georgian mansion, housing a rare art collection by Sir Wernher, is often used by mature couples or second marriages, so I decided to take on the challenge to show how a younger bride, with an appreciation for traditions and art, could style this venue in a fresh and stylish way, without compromising its integrity.
When I first visited Ranger’s House, I was immediately struck by the amount of gold and the imposing painted tapestry hanging on the walls. One thing that is often hard to do with environments like this is introducing colour in a way that doesn’t clash or create a cluttered feel.… View the full post.
Did you know RMW designer favourite Charlotte Balbier has a new collection coming soon?
Oh yes she does.
It’s called “A Decade of Style” and is aimed at the bride of the next generation – “confident with her choice of gown she glows with a beautiful edge of elegance”.
Yes – that’s you lot all over…..all a glow with your edgy elegant-ness.
Each gown has an identity, a distinct look and feel, it’s own story behind the magic; The collection captures the imagination and that’s just how Charlotte intended when designing each fashion forward piece with the bride in mind. Each bride embarks on a journey and each bride is consumed by love, and they all have their own consuming love story to tell….
“Love is above all, the gift of oneself”
In-between a halo of blush pink blossom they fell, deep into a summer of love like no other. An indulgent romance of an unconditional kind, just like the fairy-tale dreamt of many before her, Libby’s smile was voluminous and vibrant an obvious show of a woman in love. This tender love she holds is the kind to be wrapped up in an abundance of layers, layers of soft cloud like tulle to protect it from the forces of the world surrounding it.

A love so strong no-one can take it away, a willing and a bursting anxiety to please but who should she become?… View the full post.
Firstly HAPPY FRIDAY, I hope you all had an amazing Valentines full of love and laughter and generally nice stuff.
Secondly I just wanted to drop you all a reminder about the fact that you can book an appointment with either Belle and Bunty to try on Bridal gowns or Maids To Measure to find something sophisticated for your best girls at our Pop Up SHOPS….. (or why not try both?!)
If you’ve ever considered either range but London seems like a bit of a mission because you are based further up north then you can come to the Midlands on March the 17th and play dress up there, alternatively we also have appointments available on Sunday the 24th March too.
We are loving Maids To Measure,s prints and Lolly and I have already our a request in for the sexy coral bell-sleeved maxi (no we are not bridesmaids anytime soon but who said this wouldn’t be perfect for holidays……)
And if the whole colour scheme thing has you in a tailspin how about a suits-all navy? always chic, especially with all-white blooms.
Have you found “the dress” yet?
Have you ever considered Belle and Bunty? they offer some beautiful gowns.
Well if you haven’t then we definitely advise you try a frock or two on…you just never know.
And besides, who doesn’t like playing dress up?
