An ever-lacing love.

On the 29th of April 2011, Catherine Middleton married Prince William in this stunning number by Sarah Burton (Creative director at Alexander McQueen).

It was one of fashions best kept secrets, with the only people who knew, being those who were assisting in the dresses creation. Even Sarah's parents were completely unaware right up until the eve of the ceremony.  

As well as being one of the best kept secrets, it was also the gown that re-sparked the nations love for lace, especially the sleeve details. Fast forward a year and a half, and here we are with many 2013 collections still rocking this elegant look.

Below are some pictures of our favourite sleeved dresses.

A perfect touch for both winter weddings and those looking to make a bold statement. It just goes to show that covering up, doesn't mean hiding.

Designer Lust; Inbal Dror.

One look at an Inbal Dror design and immediately you see why everyone is talking about them. Her dresses have been circulating Pinterest, setting many hearts a flutter for a while now with designs that quite literally bring sexy back.

Floaty trains and intricate detailing give the dresses an elegantly simple, yet sexy femininity.

The pictures shown are images from both her current, and previous collections. The photos were shot in beautiful surroundings, in Rome, and are just awe-inspiring to journalists, brides and females alike.

Her skin baring designs combined with figure hugging fabrics, aren't for the body shy, but my oh my. Aren't they just incredible?
So what do you think?
Would you dare to bare?

A personal touch.

Incorporating personal touches into your wedding is a magnificent way to make it different. A bit more fun. A bit more you.
Below are some images (Taken from our Pinterest page) that we have found and would like to share with you for inspiration on ways to incorporate personal touches into your big day.

Cocktail hour?
Plastic wine glasses filled with milk and topped with cookies make a brilliant child-friendly edition.

For table numbers that are a talking point,
include a photo of both you and your partner at that age.

A handkerchief for mum, with a personal message makes for a great gift and a personal keepsake.

A wish tree provides people with the opportunity to write a thought, compliment or a piece of advice for the couple. It also provides them with a romantic night in later on in their lives, when they can sit down, relax and read through them.

Personalised hangers.
What a brilliant touch to avoid bridesmaid dress confusion.

Small notes or poems can really transform a gift or an invitation into something extraordinary.

For a guestbook alternative;
 Guests write a message on a pebble.
This looks great in a glass jar and is a perfect way to incorporate meaningful decor into your home after the big day.

A sweet note from the bride to the groom.

A thank-you present with a sweet note is a perfect keepsake your bridesmaids.

Photo booths are a brilliant fun filled way to add something truly unique to your wedding.
There are many ways you can do it.
You can hire booths, however if you have the time and want to get a little crafty there are many templates you can find online.
Or if you're feeling creative you can make your own!

Another charming idea for photos is to have a stand, with each of your guests names on.
Place a Polaroid on the table and get each guest to replace their name with a photo that they have taken of themselves.

For an even bigger personal touch.
Place a framed chalkboard near a camera for your guests.
Get them to write a message for the couple, take a photo, then erase it ready for the next person!

Unsure on how to tell your guests where to sit for the ceremony?
This chalkboard seating plan is perfect if you do not want the structure of a formal seating plan.

Little brown paper bags, tied with a ribbon are a pretty, inexpensive and charming way to say thank-you to the guests that came, or to send to those that couldn't make it.
Fill it with cake or a couple of wallet sized photos for a really personal touch.

Do you have any ideas, that you've thought of or used for your own big day?
