Nigerian Wedding Trend: Sequins Do it..

4 Feb

 Hello everyone!  So looking back on your responses in 2013, I was a little surprised that you all loved my wedding posts more than all the others. Here’s the thing, I love creating them! I have a lot of fun writing them. At one point last year I considered making this a wedding blog. Restricting my blog to one subject? That could never happen. My mind is far too random. Let’s face it, so is yours! Who likes just one thing?

In the light of the popularity of the wedding side, there will be more inspirational bridal posts in the year 2014. There should always be time in the day to dream! As a result of my resolution, it’s half 3 in the morning(can’t sleep, this is a scheduled post) and I’m typing.

Many west Africans will recognise the above face. She is Tiwa Savage, singer, recently married hottie/babe of life. This was her second dress on her special day. Tiwa definitely didn’t start the trend as I had seen a few sparkly wedded numbers before. But, she is definitely a worthy trend confirmer! I love that she chose a silver toned dress. The key to making this dress a hit and not a miss is picking a colour-way that suits your complexion.

So here’s a little inspiration….

Bridal Fashion: J.Crew

26 Sep

J.Crew staged a London invasion the Summer. Thus bringing the covetable brands unique styling onto our side of the globe. Don’t even get me started on the women’s wear. Major web drooling occurred !

The J. Crew Wedding department has combined the right amount of fairy tale and style. My favourite brides always have a mix of both. It is very whimsical and perfect while not being toooo put together. Quite frankly, It’s gorgeous. What should be going down the aisle? This!

The dress is a the perfect juxtaposition between playful and elegant. The cami style top makes the whole wedding dress thing not so serious. But the feather embellishment and high quality fabric bring substance for a bride who isn’t afraid to try something different.

Every now and then you see something that quite literally takes your breathe away. This just took mine..

wedding veil

by Caroline Tran Photography

Quite simply, this is everything. I don’t quite know where to start. The veil is stunning.It features tulle, white polka dots and lace. A beautiful accompaniment for a dream like blush coloured wedding dress. It would add texture for a bride wearing a simple choice on her big day. The photography is my favourite kind, natural, vintage inspired but timeless. Far from hideous over photoshopping that looks fashionable at the time and tacky 5 years later. Team this bride with rose gold, greens and pinks and you’ve got yourself a fairy-tale. My mind is running away with me, one thing at a time.

Well done sibodesigns, a beautiful veil.

Succulents at Weddings

15 May
First of all…..what in the world is a succulent? The funny thing is that I’ve always known what these unusual flowers are called, but never why? Succulents are plants that are thicker in appearance so that they can store water in harsher climates. Heaven thinks of everything!

Succulents are for the home grown bride and groom. For the couple planning a rustic inspired wedding, or looking to add some roots to a modern day.

I love how both floral designers have blended fresher and brighter looking flowers with the succulents. Pairing the bright’s with the muted tones stop the bouquet looking archaic.

Where are the price tags? At Weddington Way!

8 Apr

It’s no secret that the more luxurious the product is, the more absent the price tag is. This is all well and good with items of massive value, certain pieces of jewellry, watches etc. Maybe it’s just me, but I get super duper annoyed when I go to clothing websites with no prices. In my few years on earth I have helped countless brides with sourcing information. In these challenging financial times, it helps to shop within your budget.

             Weddington Way is an incredible initiative, giving you the option to create an online profile for your entire wedding party.  Shortlisting is so much easier, whilst allowing everybody to have their say. Your entire bridal party will actually get to see the dresses AND the prices. Easy as pie….me thinks so!

            Judging from reviews it seems that the customer service was really incredible, or not so great. However, they are doing something that nobody else is doing at the moment. That has got to be worth the risk right? Have you used Weddington Way before? I’d love to know what you thought in the comment section!

Weddington Way includes prices for Lela Rose, Watters, Dessy, Donna Morgan, Alfred Angelo, After Six….so get shopping.
