We have put together some of our absolute favourite wedding shoes available at the moment. There are so many colour and style options out there and luckily these days pretty much anything goes, the main goal is to get through the day without painful toes but with beautiful shoes. No bride wants to be distracted by uncomfortable shoes while having wedding photographs taken. The alternative to this would be to have another pair of more comfortable shoes for the evening reception, when the dancing begins and formal photography ends.
Some obvious things to remember, which we tend to forget when we fall in love with a pair of shoes is by all means make sure they actually fit, are not too slim or wide fitting. Don't make the mistake of wearing your new beautiful shoes for the first time on your wedding day ! Break them in by walking around the house which is also great for making you feel confident and walking tall in them on the big day. (wearing socks can help with pinching).
Another issue to keep in mind is the height of your partner as you really do not want to feel as if you are towering over them. Colour, embellishments, pattern, doubled material...there is so much to try. Another option is to have your shoes as your something blue or matching your wedding theme, our advice would be to get a shoe that you love and will find yourself wearing more than once. We have added some designer labels and different styles for you to swoon over. Look and feel fabulous for your special day!
Wedding hair vines are very on trend this year, but if you are asking yourself “What’s a wedding hair vine?”, let us explain. Wedding hair vines are long, flexible head pieces made on thin twisted wire that can be shaped to any design required to suit your hairstyle. Wedding hair vines generally don’t have any combs attached to them and can easily be pinned into your hair wherever needed. This gives them the flexibility to be worn with many different hairstyles.
So, how should you wear your wedding hair vine...
First, decide on how you will be wearing your hair; will you be wearing your hair down, in a long loose braid? Hair vines also look fantastic in half up half down hairstyles. Simply secure into the section of your hair that is pinned up, and then gentle curve down through your loose waves. If you are wearing your hair in a loose plait, the hair vine can simply be plaited into your hair as it is done.
As we mentioned hair vines are a very big trend for this year and here are our top selling wedding hair vines so far...
Our delicate Gold Leaf and Freshwater Pearl Headpiece, made from individual gold leaves blended with freshwater pearls and tiny diamanté crystals for a little sparkle.
The Gold Vine is a light and flexible headpiece that can be worn to the side, back or across the top of the head. It is simply attached with tiny alligator style clips hidden beneath the piece.
Whatever your mood, style, outfit or budget, there are statement earrings out there that make you happy the moment you put them on. We remember the earrings we wore on first dates and on special occasions and, let’s be honest, we can always find an excuse to treat ourselves to a new pair! When it comes to your wedding earrings, the stakes are a little higher but don’t worry, we’re here today with our top tips to help you choose the perfect pair…
You’ll be wearing your statement earrings all say so not only do they need to be beautiful they need to be practical too. If you don’t often wear long drop earrings it might be a good idea to wear your earrings at home behind closed doors for a few days to be sure you get on with them.
Consider any other accessories you'll be wearing or the details of your wedding dress when choosing your earrings. If your dress has embellishments, you might like to opt for earrings that coordinate with them.
Don’t forget that your whole outfit should be balanced, if you want to wear a glamorous pair of statement earrings, don’t rush to wear lots of other accessories, alternatively if you opt for subtle wedding earrings you can then choose to wear lots of other pieces too, our Alisha, Freshwater Pearl Silver Earrings are perfect for this.
