Illusion bodice detail.

This a very daring and sexy look, the floral detail covers up the right places. What I like about these designs is that they are not too full on. The nude design is very tastefully placed.

3D Floral Appliques:
This detail is very romantic and can bring a wedding dress to life. Whether the floral embellishment is a small feature on the dress or throughout.This trend is sure to be a show stopping look.  


This is just oh so glamorous and it shouts "HOLLYWOOD" to me. Add a twist of elegance to your look with this trend  This look like the floral appliques can be just a touch of feather detail or full on.  

Keyhole Neckline:

Midi Dresses

I know a lot of Women out there can relate to this one. Searching for the perfect outfit for a special occasion. A look that is both classy and comfortable.

I would describe it as a boutique wedding fair and YES it was as described (Pinterest brought to life). All the supplier stands were so beautiful, you could see the time and effort that went into each one of them, just really fab altogether.

My Husband came along with me and he was even impressed. We both agree that events like this were missing for us when we were planning. From chatting to some of the suppliers, we were in agreement that this is unique and something that has never been done before. 
The whole wedding planning process has changed since we got married.There are so many more options available now from venues,invitations,photographers and cakes.The list could go on,suppliers are offering more of a bespoke service.
Brides and grooms ar…
