Well today has turned out to be pretty exciting all in all, as you read this not only will Team RMW will be at The National Wedding Show but we have a ridiculously delicious exclusive to share with you all.
It’s no big secret that I am a sucker for fashion. Even more so when a collection is beautifully styled and the pieces are A. Complete. Bargain.
Imagine my delight then when Kirstie Taylor (she of Flo and Percy fame) and new business partner Shelley-Carter Bright (beauty writer for many a fancy glossy) asked Rock My Wedding to feature their brand new range of vintage-inspired gowns.
Kitty Paine and Dulcie Smith were Kirstie and Shelley’s grandmothers who in the war-torn years when money and materials were scare, shared an undeterred and fierce passion for dress-making. In their honour and loving memory Kitty and Dulcie was born, an on-line boutique of affordable, beautiful and catwalk-worthy W-day dresses.
The Kitty And Dulcie website has everything you could possibly need for purchasing your favourite frock at the touch of a button, all-angle images with zoom feature (LOVE a zoom me….) and a video that demonstrates exactly how each delectable number “moves”.
So without further ado, sit back, relax and enjoy the pretty.
The Cockney Rebel: Goodness me the swooshyness… layers of tulle make me giddy with glee, and I love the mix of princess-esque dress with bohemian headpiece and rock n roll make-up. £375.
The City Slicker: Yes I know, who knew a full length slinky applique number combined with a bowler hat would look so darn HOT? If I was offered the opportunity to wear this to the local market I so would. £375
The Bobbi Dazzler: Fun and flirty, one-shoulder floral corsage detail is gonna be HUGE for 2012 brides. And not that I want to make you buy even more or anything but… at £285 you could purchase it just for the first dance right?
The Pearly Queen: Make like an extra from Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan with a knee-length full-skirted number. There are sparkly beads AND sequins people. £285
The Dolly Rocker: The bow… how I love thee. And you know what? it’s the biggest bargain of the lot, £250. I’ll have two please….
Head Candy: If you were wondering what the to-die-for head accessories were then they are the Wilderness headband and the Temptation headband, both by Flo & Percy. And with such an under budget gown why not treat yourself?

Every Kitty and Dulcie dress arrives beautifully tissue wrapped complete with pretty padded hanger for you to try on in the comfort of your own home. I really want one. And as I can’t find a suitable enough excuse to flex the plastic I am hoping some of you gorgeous lot certainly will.

P.S Does anyone else order clothes off the net that are essentially just for themselves giftwrapped for the sheer pleasure of receiving fancy parcel? No? Oh dear. Just me then.
