Should you wear your hair up or down on your wedding day?

February 20, 2020

Should you wear your hair up or down on your wedding day?

Are you trying to make your mind up whether to wear your hair up or down on your wedding day? Brides often face this dilemma, so start by asking yourself…

How do you usually wear your hair?
Are you more comfortable with it up or down?
What style of dress are you wearing?

The answers to these will give you an idea of what you should wear your hair - up or down and no matter which suits you best there are lots of options to add a little bit of wedding glitz to your “do”…
Bride with hair down

For many brides, their reason for wanting to wear their hair up is that it was more like their everyday style and they wanted their guests and their husband to be to see them as themselves and not overly styled, for others it can often be because it feels easier – once it’s up, its up, and there’s no further maintenance required throughout the day. You can also tie in your up-do with the rest of your ensemble with a pretty hair clip or headpiece like the Lynette show below.

Many brides with the lustrous locks want them to be part of their wedding styling, and choose to keep their hair down and rightly so, also Brides who prefer to wear their hair down tend to be girls who always wear their hair down – bottom line, they feel the foremost comfortable, beautiful and assured with their hair down. If you make this choice you can add some 20’s style art deco glamour with our Abigails, Birdcage Veil & Headband. This is the perfect alternative to the traditional tiara for brides searching for an unusual and bold hair accessory, and the birdcage veil can be made as a detachable piece.

There are always ‘half-up’ options too, which may be a good way to keep your hair away from your face, while still showing the length of your tresses, this is often popular with brides who are torn between up or down.
Bride Hair Down

Some brides choose to begin the day with their hair up, then have their hairstylist transform them in time to meet their evening guests with their hair down. If you have the time and also the budget to accommodate this, then it may be really nice surprise for your groom).

The dress also plays an element a choice when deciding how your hair should be worn – if you would like to make a point off showing of a specific detail of the back or shoulders then that may be the biggest factor in your decision. Bridal boutiques can give great advice during bridal gown fittings – and you’ll get a feeling of what looks better with certain dresses as you are trying on various styles.

You will want to look back on your day and remember it as the most wonderful experience, knowing that everything was perfect for you. So, follow your heart and trust your own sense of personal style you’ll feel the happiest you’ve ever felt.

Planning a wedding in uncertain times...
Planning a wedding in uncertain times...

March 30, 2020

Anyone who has planned a wedding will tell you that there is a lot to think about, whatever time of year you choose for it to take place. But if the run-up to your wedding or even the big day itself are happening in the midst of the corona virus outbreak, you might be wondering what you should do to prepare (if that is even possible!) and plan for the potential that your wedding will in some way be affected.
Right now, whether you’re planning a wedding at home or abroad, there are countless moving parts surrounding COVID-19 and since this situation is fluid, what it means for your wedding, specifically, really depends on your wedding date.
Wedding Planning
To help you prepare for what you should do—and help you if you do sadly have to change plans—we spoke with experts across the industry, including travel consultants and wedding planners, to give you a closer look at how COVID-19 is affecting wedding planning right now, and how to prep for the coming months.
No. 1 - Be prepared
Whenever there is a problem, there is generally a solution, or if you can’t find a solution there is likely an alternative. It sounds very cliched but the best you can do is to keep calm and carry on. All of your guests whether they be family, friends, or colleagues all want to celebrate with you, but at a time that is safe and when you can all enjoy each others company.
No. 2 - Communicate with your vendors
Rather than second guess what your vendors are planning, get in touch with them, discuss worst scenarios and come together to create a game plan.

A brides guide to wedding accessories…
A brides guide to wedding accessories…

Choosing your bridal jewellery is one of THE best parts about planning your wedding ensemble and we should know! But there are other accessories that need to be considered in the run-up to the big day, so we have pulled together this guide to make sure you don’t miss anything…

When it comes to shoes comfort is key, remember that you will be wearing these shoes for the majority of the day, you will be standing, walking and dancing, so, go for natural materials, as they are more breathable and will stretch to fit your feet. Also, don’t forget to buy your shoes around the same time as you order your wedding dress. This is very important as your alterations, especially the hem adjustment, will depend on the height of your heel. Buying shoes early on will mean you are ready for all of your fittings and that you have plenty of time to break them in at home.
The timing of your wedding can be a deciding factor on your footwear choice. If you are getting married in winter, you might want a back-up pair of weddingtons (see what we did there!) to avoid the puddles, or if you are having your reception in the summer months you might want a pair of flats or wedges at the ready for walking on grass. In fact, having a back-up pair of flats is always a great idea, just in case!

It is traditionally the job of the groom or the father-of-the-bride to gift the bride with pearls on the day of her wedding. Pearls are seen as a symbol of perfection, purity and innocence, and it is said that the ancient Greeks believed pearls would help ensure marital bliss and prevent newlywed brides from crying!
When it comes to wedding jewellery there are many, many choices when it comes to pearls. You could opt for a pearl choker, a discreet pearl bracelet, some beautiful earrings or one of our favourites, a pearl headpiece, here is our Gold Leaf and Freshwater Pearl Headpiece, which is a great choice for any bride.
