Have I Got TOMS For You.

Last week, we introduced the wellies as alternative wedding shoes for rainy weather but how about comfortable shoes for sunny days? TOMS, the uber socially responsible shoes brand have come up with a wedding collection that’ll make you reconsider the need to wear heels. Their glittery styles come in various colours or if you’re feeling artsy, you can even customise your own pair of TOMS, getting the white ones as your blank canvas. It’s not only for the ladies; men are included too. Besides the comfort factor, you’ll also be contributing to the greater good, that is, helping the children in need. Every pair you buy, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in one of the 40 countries they support. Go on, you have a big heart. Get yourselves and the bridal party decked out in these funky shoes.

A Cork-y Affair.

In the last few years, we have seen scores of wine shops opening one after another, and every Tom, Dick and Harry attending wine appreciation classes. After all, who doesn’t like a glass of wine or two? Just enough to get you a little merry? Incorporate your love of wine into your wedding day by using cork as the prime theme. It’s uber versatile and a fantastic complement to your big day especially if it’s held on a romantic vineyard. Dreamy. Even if you’re not a wine connoisseur, nothing’s going to stop you from loving the rustic feel of the good ol’ cork. Start drinking and collecting!


DIY Cork Escort Card

Bottle cork
Sharp Knife

1. Carefully cut a slit in the bottle cork and cut till you reach the middle.
2. Write or print the guest names on a piece of thick paper 8cm x 5cm (normal printer paper won’t work as it’s too thin and will flop).
3. Insert the paper into the slit you cut earlier and voila. Easy ain’t it?

I went for a dose of retail therapy yesterday (not that I needed it) and bought a metallic skirt from Zara which inspired me to write today’s post. Who doesn’t like a bit of glitz and glam once in a while, especially when it comes to your wedding day? Usually associated with New Year’s celebrations or sci-fi movies, the metallic is back. It’s no longer seen as tacky (unless you go OTT) and can actually add a bit of class to a very special day. Swap your virginal white frock for a glittery number or foilstamp your invitations to give your guests a glimpse of what’s to come. Have fun, you sparkly chick!

Do You Want to Be a Bebe Bride?

There’s yet another US retailer that’s jumped onto the bridal bandwagon and this time it’s Bebe, the brand synonymous with clubbing outfits. That means short, tight-fitting dresses that bares a little more skin than your average parent might allow. However, their new bridal line in collaboration with Project Runway’s Rami Kashou, has been designed to a certain extent, with the sophisticated bride in mind. If you want to feel like a princess for the day, you can even buy the Duchess of Cambridge’s Alexandra McQueen lookalike wedding gown, albeit with more cleavage on show. There’s also something for the bridesmaids that’ll flaunt their figure. Bebe ships internationally so if you’re pressed for time and like to be a bit risque, you’d better start shopping.

p.s. Topshop (go Brits!) will be launching their debut bridal collection in June, with Richard Nicoll as the designer and is apparently based on a ”modern alternative to meringue culture”. Feeling giddy!

Give a Dress a Second Chance.

If Carrie Bradshaw’s boutique-sized walkin wardrobe in Sex and the City is only but a dream for you and you’ve gone way over your wedding budget, it might be wise to sell your wedding dress and evening gowns on the second hand market (of course, only after you’ve tied the knot), unless it has significant sentimental value or you want to pass it down the generations. Likewise, if you’re one of those eco-friendly chicks who’s not bothered about wearing ‘something new’ (no one will even know it’s a used dress!), then you may want to give Recycled Bride or Designer Gowns HK some serious thought.

Both websites are essentially a marketplace for Mr. & Mrs.-to-be and those who’ve already signed on the dotted line, to buy and sell wedding related items. This means if you’re a buyer, you can save money and if you’re a seller, you can earn. It’s a win-win situation. Designer Gowns HK is Hong Kong based and charges a 7% fee with a cap at HKD500, whilst Recycled Bride is an international portal that’s completely free. You read right, it doesn’t cost you a dime to sign up. The terms of sale and prices are entirely your choice so act now. Your hubby can’t complain that you’re wasting money now can he?

It’s Vintage Darling.

How many times have you watched a period drama, or more recently the ultra-addictive Downton Abbey and thought how glam you’d look wearing a 1920s frock? Unfortunately, this city ain’t big on anything old (just look at the sheer number of high rises vs the historical buildings) and vintage shops are hard to come by. Luckily Ruche, the online vintage inspired boutique with a modern twist, has started a bridal collection that is affordable and most importantly ships internationally. Start shopping!

Stripes In Your Eyes.

Don’t you just love the stripes on zebras? So classy and sexy yet giving off a fun vibe. You too can bring effortless chic to your wedding day by incorporating the stripe-y print: blue and white for a nautical theme, black and white for understated elegance or experiment with bright colours to reflect your playfulness. Don’t go overboard though or your guests will be seeing stripes in their eyes.

Oh hello, I’d like one of those. Red stripe beer I mean.

Team Neon Pink + Turquoise: How Neon Can You Go?

First it was Katy Perry at the Roc-Nation Pre-Grammy brunch, then it was SamCam at yesterday’s London Fashion Week reception. They have both brought an explosion of colour to a very psychedelic 2012. We’re only two months into the year and already, we’ve seen much extreme colour blocking everywhere. Now it’s your turn. Just make sure you don’t wear a neon pink wedding dress, unless you want a cameo in My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding.

Team Tangerine + Fuchsia + Lemon. Hotness 2012.

Bridelicious is in that bright mood today. The sun is out and it’s hump day, so what better way than to celebrate using this year’s Pantone colour of the year, tangerine tango. If you’re the type of bride who likes all things bold and beautiful, add even more oomph to your wedding and treat your guests to a festival of colours by pairing tangerine with fuchsia and balancing out the strong hues with subtle splashes of lemon. Now, no one can say that ballroom looks boring.

Brighten up your guests’ day.
