I tried to think of a suitable Rock My Wedding type title for this post. Um….and found that actually I couldn’t – there just isn’t any wordage worthy in the English language.
I am not kidding you people.
When I first clapped eyes on the Jenny Packham Spring/Summer 2011 Collection a series of thoughts sprung to mind:
1. It is the most deliciously sexy bridal advertising campaign I have ever seen. Fact.
Have now decided that when I grow up I want to languish idly across an abundance of silk sheets strewn with scented rose petals. I will lie there for what is possibly a considerably legnthy period of time pouting my scarlett lips and batting my long glossy lashes……… until someone notices how utterly lovely I look.
This may make me appear incredibly shallow.
I shall not be apologising for it.
2. No collection has made me wish I had done BIG or indeed SHORT quite as much as this one. Oh and SPARKLY…. how I want to do sparkly….. I want to shimmer down the aisle like the freakin’ blackpool illuminations I tell you.
3. Over the past few weeks I have transformed into a foot -stamping tantrum-throwing green eyed monster of a blog queen. I will never have the opportunity to wear one of these gorgeous frocks and I am positively drowning in envy at the fact some of you lovelies will.
It’s official. I am overcome with one or the worlds most deadliest of sins.
JEALOUSY. It’s a dirty dirty word.
I can’t begin to tell you how difficult it was to chose our top 10 Jenny Packham 2011 Bridal Collection must-haves, I have chopped and changed a few hundred times at least….
But deliver you blue polka dot pages of fashion fabulousness is what we are here to do – and do it we ruddy well shall.
Prepare to be astounded folks.
Want to get your rocks off come W-day? well I suggest you seriously consider getting your rocks firmly on with the divine embellishment details of Asteria and Eden.
If demure and delicate floats your big day boat then perhaps consider the feminine frills of Fontaine and Opera – perfection.
I don’t think I need to spell out how much I am in love with tulle. Dearest and Minerva prove that bigger is definitely beautiful.
Are you blessed with an enviable pair of pins? yes? lucky old you eh…… I suggest you flash them in feather-fringed Dido or lace layered Roberta.
I don’t usually do the whole shiny sequined thing to be honest but Belita and Cascade just made me turn a total one-eighty. I die.
If you are thinking of a Madam Packham for W-day then do let us know. I will try really hard to smile sweetly, nod politely and not just outright steal it from you…
Can’t promise though.
