Each of the RMW team will pick out something entirely different from each real wedding we feature as their “favourite detail” or their “favourite moment”, I 100% guarantee it. That’s not a bad thing of course, it simply goes to show that we are all individuals with varying requirements for what makes us tick. Much like you gorgeous lot in fact, and why we endeavour to showcase as much variety as we possibly can.
When I first saw Lucy and Chris’s Big Day it was the dress that first caught my attention, so swishy, so elegant, so glamorous. And then it was the blooms. Peach, pink, lilac and spring green, a ray of sunshine all tied up in one ribbon wrapped bouquet.
Of course all that pretty is easy to admire, and as much as I love the obvious aesthetics, my favourite part of this London soiree has got to be when Lucy is walking up the ailse. The way Chris is looking at her. The anticipation of Lucy looking at him. The way they look at each other …..

A 1930′s inspired Natural Look
For my hen party ‘Emma Dennis’ did all my friends hair and make-up for a 1930s themed evening. She did a fab job so I asked her to do my wedding hair and make-up. I went for a fairly natural look so I looked like an improved version of ‘me’ it was definitely worth having a make-up artist because it stayed on all day and night!… View the full post.
So, while we had the lovely ladies together last week we thought we might as well squeeze a little bit more out of the day… nothing like setting yourself a challenge! We spend a considerable amount of time here at Rock My Wedding talking about bringing maids fashion up to date and making your best ladies look a million dollars. We love a colour scheme as much as the next person but we also like individuality, unique style and a bit of good old fashioned affordability so we thought we would put together a couple of looks to show you how good ideas that are often seen in shoots can look in real life.
We put the styling together on a very last minute basis, used a combination of the girls own dresses and our own clothes and a bit of sheer luck when it came to fit and theme but I don’t think the results were half bad?
First up, in keeping with this season block colour trends, how about mixing your brights?
If you’ve been living under a rock, then you may not have heard, but we’re certainly taking no credit for breaking this trend… Spring/Summer 2011 is all about block colour. And that means juicy or primary brights mixed and matched. If you’re a little shy then you can add in a spot of neutral, this look certainly isn’t for the faint of heart and neither are our girls…
The festive season is looming and it’s time to choose a party frock, but it’s also planning season in full swing for the winter brides out there. Todays city chic wedding makes me think of the most stylish maids in cocktail attire, looking and feeling fabulous, but where can you find perfect party frocks, special enough for a Bridesmaids dress, without breaking the bank?
Coast had become a little, dare I say it… predictable for Bridesmaids (and I think I’m allowed to, as my own Bridesmaids wore Coast) but a recent flick through the website left me pleasantly surprised and I just had to share some options for the chicest maids, prettiest parties and general festive flirtations
Navy remains one of my all time favourite colours for bridesmaids. Perennially chic, suited to all seasons and just a general all round winner, it’s classic whilst remaining modern.
I’m particularly loving the old gold colours here with Navy, a really subtle and sophisticated pallet suited to the colder months and a hefty dose of city chic.
I’m really loving the idea of bridesmaids wearing shorter frocks these days… the short skirt revolution is nothing new, but cocktail styles and grown up maids are a match made in chic heaven…
Though most of these are well suited to a winter months affair, I can see the purple with floral details at a fun summer celebration with jewels tones and bright shoes.
Whilst black is not my favourite shade for a bridesmaid, monochrome is a totally different ball game and there are occasions and settings where it can look timeless, modern and up to date in the style stakes.… View the full post.
I am so excited to be sharing this wedding with you today and of course the second part tomorrow. Its a total fashion fest and really for me sums up why I love Rock My Wedding – being able to inspire with Serious Style like this. We’re kicking of with all the fashion and getting to the equally unique decor and reception style tomorrow.
The second reason is that this wedding was photographed by Jon Rouston – one of our earliest sponsors, I’m delighted to be able to finally share some of his stunning photography of an A.mazing wedding. – Thanks Jon!
A Gentle Gothic Dress
The dress was from The Ivory Bridal Collection in Barton North Lincs (beautiful shop!) I saw it on a mannequin as soon as I walked in and fell in love with it! It had a simple vintage feel and was full of all the unique details I’d been craving for like that of mixed textures & materials, a bit of lace here, netting there, messy but elegant, (it had a slightly gothic feel but in the creamy ivory looked so gentle!)
It was just like nothing like I’d seen anywhere ever and looked so beautiful and I’m the opposite of a silky or bling person, so it felt so me! It was a handmade dress (which would mean mine would be different in all its details to the one I tried on, even better!) It took 6 months to be made and to be shipped over from the designers (Cymbeline) in France.… View the full post.
