~Trendy Mondays~ ‘Something new’ to carry down the aisle!

Say no to flower power and opt for something completely different!  With each bride wanting to add a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ to their wedding, there are so many alternatives to choose from.  As beautiful as flowers are, they are not for everyone but some of these other “details” might just be down your ‘aisle’!

Bouquets have been replaced by many things that make a statement reflecting the bride’s tastes and personality. Check out some of the items that have made an appearance at weddings.  

A parasol can add elegance to the bride’s outfit, especially in satin, lace or silk. It is also practical too for an outdoor wedding to shade you from the sun or protect you from the rain!



How about a decorative fan to match your theme?



Light up with a candle bouquet for that romantic ambience.



Whether it be metal or paper, lanterns are a great alternative to the traditional floral bouquet.  Bring out your personality with this detail of your wedding.  It could even double as a part of the reception decor!  The bridesmaids place their lanterns on the head table and there you go - instant decor!


Normally this would be the bible, but brides nowadays are going for their favourite books instead! 


A plethora of ideas to choose from and the list doesn’t end here, anything goes!

Have fun with it!

Wedding Gown Trends

Gowns with high, elegant necklines appeared in many of the 2013 bridal collections.  Now this is a trend that we just love!  Classic.  Elegant.  Romantic. Some of the designs are a little reminiscent of Jackie O don't you think?    A welcome alternative to the strapless gown, high necklines still keep the romantic, feminine and modern feel that brides are looking for.  Here are just a few that inspired us and would love to share!  Let us know what you think!

Our favourite of the day..... seriously gorgeous.
