If your’e next in line to walk down the aisle I would count yourself lucky (when it comes to the dress department). Never has there been such a wonderful array of dresses on offer from the high street. Brides on a budget have so much choice from an ever expanding bridal collection, from Topshop to Whistles, to ASOS to name only a few, you actually wonder why even those NOT on a budget would bother spending large sums of money, that is how good the options are! I have narrowed down some of my favourites (which may not be yours) but hopefully a link may open the door to your perfect dress minus the hefty price tag….
To me the fabric used to make this dress is absolutely everything, the most delicate lace that has a small foil print all over is so intricate and different. For the unconventional bride! I also think this style would suit a small bust because of the low neckline and wrap style front. Shop here
This elegant dress is a combination of romance and simplicity and would in my opinion take everyones breath away. Perhaps for the slightly taller silhouette having the empire line. Or maybe even a the perfect style for a bride who’s expecting 😉 Shop here
Having a vintage wedding? This little beauty couldn’t be a better fit for the more casual bride, one of the prettiest dresses I’ve seen. Shop here
A structured embellished gown in the most flattering style to suit any figure. Shop here
This beautifully elegant gown is modern but timeless, with its bardot style top and beautifully shaped silhouette gives it a simplicity that will never date. Shop here
Looking at all these beauties wishes I could pick my dress all over again!
I love weddings, no matter how many we all go to, they are all different and special in their own ways and everyone there is always in a happy and loving mood and of course there to celebrate the future of the wonderful couple. Destination weddings are even more fun because it usually means a few nights away with good friends.
A few simple rules to stick by when dressing for a wedding. Check the dress code and stick to it. Do not wear white. Keep your hairstyle simple and elegant.

There are certain items that are necessities for the closet all year round and then others that come and go as the season’s and trends change. This summer (or just for the start of summer, lets be honest we aren’t only going to buy 3 things the entire season!) But I have picked 3 pieces that you wont regret purchasing. These items will come in handy more than once, trust me.
These block mid heel sandals are the perfect shoes to wear to that Out-door wedding, the Polo or the Races. Not only will they save your feet from aches and pains due to the middy height but the block heel will save you from sinking into the grass and potential embarrassing falls. The very neutral and bang on trend sandals will go with just about everything. They will also be great with jeans and are the perfect heel for shorts.

The Boucle Blazer, a smart/casual fabric, a smart fit and an extremely flattering cut is the perfect jacket to throw on this summer. Whether you are off to a formal event, wear it over a dress or it will look super chic over a little strappy vest and jeans to add that extra layer on a slightly cooler evening.

Metallics and sequins are an absolute must for evenings during the summer months. Hopefully you wont have to cover the sparkle up with a jacket and it’s the easier way to jazz up your jeans for an evening out. You will look oh so radiant with a bit of a tan and I just love the way light catches these fabrics in romantic candle lit lighting. If you are looking for a show stopping red carpet moment this gorgeous metallic vest looks even more phenomenal worn together with its matching skirt for a more formal event. You will dazzle and certainly be the belle of the ball in this outfit!
