Yellow is everywhere right now. It’s a shade we’ve long loved, having championed it on numerous occasions in the past and it appears the happiest of colours is back with a bang. With everyone from Amal Clooney, Megan Markle, Kate Middleton and Holly Willoughby sporting the shade, as well as lots of gorgeous RMW bridesmaids, today we’re sharing our edit of need-to-buy yellow frocks. Perfect for your best girls right now, but also making the ideal brightly coloured addition to their occasionwear wardrobe. My personal fave, the Needle & Thread maxi, is described, rather wonderfully, as ‘sunflower’ colour, which truly makes me feel warm inside. But whether you’re after sunflower, mustard, lemon, buttercup or good old sunshine yellow, you’ll find a dress in our edit to suit..
When it comes to finishing touches for the big day, you’re spoilt for choice with PANDORA. Their jewellery collections are great for both brides and bridesmaids. Today we’re sharing three of our favourite looks for you and your best girls, with hair styles and jewellery choices to perfectly compliment each dress. It’s not as simple as just adding a pair of earrings and a necklace – jewellery can really enhance an outfit and the style of your hair can completely change a look. But worry not, we’ve teamed up with PANDORA to bring you our guide to choosing the best jewellery to complete your look…prepare for some serious wedding hair goals!
When Fran and Katie launched their collection for Bridesmaids, I knew they’d take the wedding world by storm. Talented, driven, stylish and just really lovely people, they’ve gone from strength to strength over the years, now dressing bridesmaids across the world in their signature styles. If you’ve yet to discover Rewritten, then you’re in for a treat. Every style is so wearable, flattering and elegant in a contemporary way, and the girls always totally nail the colour options.
Today I’m really excited to share with you gorgeous new style ‘Seville’ – an elegant, floor length gown with cape-like sleeve details that drape to perfection and finish with a bow at the shoulder. The ‘Seville’ comes in the usual Rewritten shades as well as brand new colours Ink and Forest, a dark and delicious navy black hue and a rich and vibrant green…
Hi everyone, it’s lovely to be back over here chatting bridesmaids as normally you’ll find me over on our lifestyle site, Rock My Style.
My friend Caroline recently got engaged to her fiancé Bradley and asked me to be one of her best girls. With this in mind Fern and I thought a series of posts from a bridesmaid’s perspective might be helpful. I’ll go into a lot of detail about the hen do planning in the next few posts but for now I thought we should get serious and talk about the responsibilities…
When recently married reader Kerry contacted me with this article, it really resonated. Wonderfully written by Kerry, I nodded my head vigorously throughout. Have a read and let me know what you think. Fern x
A few months before my wedding this year, over dinner one evening, my friend asked if she could be introduced before her speech as “The Best Woman”. We’d been deliberating her title, as weren’t quite comfortable with “chief bridesmaid” or “maid of honour”. The former seemed an Americanised and try-hard modern term, born out of desperation to stamp out the contrastingly old-fashioned honourable maid (images of a smug older cousin or family friend elected out of family duty rather than choice spring to mind). Who is this honourable woman? What if your best friend is a scandalous, hilarious and C-word blaring minx of a woman – does she not fit the bill?
I’ve championed gorgeous bridesmaid’s brand Rewritten since the start, their style led design, in a select range of colours, designed in London and made with the finest crepe which hangs beautifully makes them the perfect choice for discerning, stylish bridesmaids. They are dresses which will be worn again and again, and I’m really excited to share with you lots of gorgeous real bridesmaids wearing Rewritten dresses in the coming months. But for now, here’s the latest Rewritten look book, shot by RMW fave Joanna Bongard at the iconic seaside town of Margate. It’ll make you want to grab your best girls and head to the beach, which is exactly how bridesmaids dress viewing should make you feel 😉
There is nothing cuter than a mini entourage following you down the aisle. When we receive pictures featuring the beaming smiles of flower girls and page boys we all do a little ‘ahhh’. Not just for the cuteness factor but for the look of sheer joy and happiness on their little faces. Children adore being part of your big day. It makes them feel so special and I don’t think you can beat that childhood excitement.
Ok, so they may not always do exactly as they are told (I should know after my darling daughter decided to sit down in the middle of the aisle at my sisters wedding and bawl her eyes out) but having them involved is such a wonderful thing. Whether they are nieces and nephews, friend’s children or your own children you can be guaranteed that they will bring that little bit of extra ‘cuteness’ to the wedding party.
Happy Sunday lovelies!
Today’s post is dedicated to our best girls, but with that vague brief in mind I didn’t just want to talk about pretty dresses…
For some, choosing your bridesmaids might have been a done deal from the minute you got a ring on your finger, but I don’t think I am on my own in finding selecting my beautiful maids one of the toughest wedding decisions of all.
There are more than ten lovely ladies in this world that I would genuinely call a best friend. Some may call it greedy; I just say I’m blooming lucky to have so many fabulous creatures in my life. And that’s before I even get to family, which is really important to me too.
Following Connie’s gorgeous engagement shoot this morning – I thought we’d give you the chance to enter our competition again, just in case you missed it first time around…
Allow me to introduce you to jewellery brand Astrid & Miyu. I’ll begin with a quick warning, their pieces are highly addictive and once you’ve bought something from them, you will have to go back for more…
We discovered Astrid & Miyu as we’re featuring founder Connie’s wedding and we just knew that you stylish bunch would love their jewellery. I wore one of their chain rings and necklaces to a team meeting a few weeks ago and everyone commented on how pretty, dainty and sparkly the jewellery was. Compared to some of the more expensive jewellery lines out there, A&M is better made and looks far more luxe – a savvy investment 😉
