10 ways to make sure you enjoy your wedding day – and the final preparations

It’s one month to my wedding day. The skin around my finger nails is raw, I am liable to get stressed if asked what I’m having for lunch, suddenly get overwhelmed at all the things that need to be done, people called, emails sent, final purchases bought. ‘Enjoy the lead-up to your wedding day,’ everyone keeps saying. ‘Seriously, enjoy it. And remember, on the day, enjoy it. And don’t expect everything to be perfect, and don’t worry if things go wrong, because they will.’ As if often the case, that is easier said than done. So, for any brides-to-be that are ripping the skin from their fingers and shouting at their beloveds, here are 10 ways to – CALM DOWN!     1. Don’t take everything so seriously. So many decisions, so much energy and so many hours spent mean that the stakes get higher and higher – but remember […]

Bride On Time

Being a bride undoubtedly brings plenty of excuses to indulge in lavish treats, with endless rounds of exquisite cake tasting, beautiful dress fittings, and dream locations to explore. But one area often overlooked by those pampering themselves in preparation for their big trip down the aisle is that of wrist wear, with the focus often being on a certain other item of bling. Don’t get us wrong, we’re all about the engagement sparkler, but why can’t a girl have both? Investing in a special timepiece to mark this important time in your life is the perfect way to ensure that all of the memories you make during the months of wedding planning, the big day itself, and the dream honeymoon live on long after the confetti has been swept away. We may not be able to live the dream of being a bride forever, but a beautiful watch can transport […]

Don’t let ‘bad beauty’ ruin your big day!

Don’t let ‘bad beauty’ ruin your big day! It is no secret that weddings can be extremely expensive with most couples usually looking for ways to save money and cut corners in order to make their big day a reality. The average bride spends at least £220 (or more) on beauty, with so much to think about and so much to spend out on who’d blame a bride for trying to save a few pounds wherever possible. Wedding hair, beauty and make-up can pose many a dilemma for brides. Do you have everything done by the professionals? Do you let a friend have a go at helping you out? Do you save money and go down the DIY hair, beauty and make-up route? There are a few things that are worth keeping in mind when making these decisions. Allergies and reactions to products are real possibilities and can have dire […]

Wedding speeches: should a bride make one?

YES! Absolutely, definitely, totally… if she wants to, of course. Some brides may not wish to stand up and get emotional in front of their 90/150/200 guests for a wedding speech, in which case there is absolutely no need to. But for those who are wondering if they would like to, mulling over the chance to say a few words to their nearest and dearest, I would say, do it. I would say, I’m doing it.     It’s daunting. Public speaking is a whole art, after all. But if fathers of the bride, grooms and best men have been making wedding speeches for years, then I think we can manage it too. I spent a fair chunk of last weekend on the internet (quelle surprise), reading tips on how to write a wedding speech and watching YouTube videos of brides who have been there and done that. What I learned […]

Wedding Dresses For Your Body Shape – Inverted Triangle

  Wedding Dresses For Your Body Shape – Inverted Triangle   Working in a bridal shop I often see girls with a very specific idea of what they want their wedding dress to be like. Often times I can tell by looking at the girl whether their ideal dress is going to work on their body shape or not. It can be a very disappointing experience for a bride to be to find out the dress she has been dreaming about simple doesn’t suit her because it just doesn’t flatter her body shape.   Here is a simple guide to help you stay focused and realistic when it comes to scrolling through Pinterest and flicking through bridal magazines. There is no harm in trying different shapes and styles on if even just for the heck of it, it is supposed to be a fun experience but if you are finding it difficult […]

What’s your Shape?

Have you ever wondered how you’re going to find that perfect dress for the big day? Or what is really the difference between a mermaid and a trumpet? Well don’t worry because we’re here to help you decipher the world of bridal gowns. There are certain styles of dresses that look flattering on each and every body type. Throughout this post we’ll help you understand your amazing body type, and what kind of dress style that you might want to consider when looking for your wedding gown. Let’s get started!

3 girls, 3 nights and 3 ski resorts…

For many years now I have been envious of friends when they have talked about going away on their skiing holidays! Days spent whizzing around on the slopes in picture perfect surroundings followed by cosying up by a crackling wood fire with a warming drink and gastronomic delights aplenty, it always sounded like the most fantastic holiday so naturally I was super excited when an opportunity finally came for me to tick this amazing experience off my bucket list and what better place to start than the Austrian Alps. Getting to the Austrian Alps from the UK was really easy and my journey began with a short two hour flight from London to Innsbruck airport after which we made a scenic 60 minute drive to Ischgl, a small town in the Paznaun region of the Tirol in the Silvretta Mountains. Ischgl is known not only for being one of the […]

Top conversations between a couple preparing a wedding

We all know that preparing a wedding is one of the most stressful things you’ll do in life. It brings out your differences, highlights them and then bounces them off the walls in front of you. There are tiffs, arguments, dilemmas, big decisions and important personal choices to make – one after another after another. I wish I’d written them all down but here are a few of my top pick of conversations with my other half while planning our wedding.     I’ve put Her and Him, but we all know that it’s Me and my beloved, Oscar… Her: “I want a wedding half that size.” Him: silence. Her: “They’re going to sew it into the dress.” Him: “The knickers?” Her: “You have to understand…” His dad: “I understand. And you have to understand…” Her: “Are they coming?” Him: “They have to come.” Her: “We still have loads to […]

Make Your Wedding Bouquet YOURS

www.stylemepretty.com How will you make your bouquet YOURS?  When you start to think about this, and do a little research, there are actually many ways.  The above photo, with the remnants of a wedding veil, MUST have a story…my guess is that the bride is honoring a beloved family member who was unable to attend her wedding – maybe a mother or grandmother? A bride’s bouquet is a beautiful way to add a sentimental wisp of whimsy to your wedding. www.flowergirlsoftulsa.com How about the lavender and white bouquet above?  I love the pearl necklace woven through the blossoms.  I’m sure it has some special meaning, belonged to someone dear to the bride. craftyourownwedding.com The white ball of flowers above is embellished with vintage rhinestone broaches.  Broaches?  You know…the pins older ladies used to wear.  Queen Elizabeth, Queen of England, is a serial broach wearer. :-) www.w-weddingflowers.com The image of the […]
