The Perfect Silhouette.

‘The Dress’. The item on the planning checklist that most brides look at first and I don’t blame them. You want and will be the centre of attention so it’s important to find the right silhouette for your body shape. You might have been eyeing on that strapless number but it may accentuate your already broad shoulders or if you’re pear shaped, then an A-line dress will be the perfect fit. Follow SimplyBridal’s flow chart to save your time before the start to your dress hunt!

If You Like It, Put a Ring On It!

This one’s for the men and for a selected group of  ladies who are non-traditionalists. Those at SimplyBridal, have shared with us a flow chart on how to figure out your other half’s ring size without them finding out before the proposal. Awww you romantic. In my case, the hubster went through great lengths digging around my bedroom and coincidentally, the one ring I owned was sent to , a Hong Kong accessories boutique for a custom hand-made ring. Instead of trying other methods, he courageously took a guess, using his pinky circumference as the sample. And to prove our compatibility, he got the ring size right. First try. So, for you folks looking at finding out the ring size, there’s no right or wrong strategy. Follow this flow chart and see what works for you and if all fails, go with your gut.

Simply Bridal: Online Bridal Shop + Giveaway!

How many times have you looked at a wedding dress and had to stop and breathe because of the astronomical price and wondered when you’ll ever afford it? Reality check. After all, not all couples who get married are minted. In comes SimplyBridal, the bridal shop founded by Lawrence Ng, that takes the stress out of wedding budgeting by removing the middleman and selling their products online (with only one showroom in L.A.) and in turn, passing the savings on to you. Now, aren’t you lucky? With a biannual collection (spring and fall) designed by a Fashion Insitute of Technology graduate whose had over twelve years of experience in the fashion industry, including BCBGMAXAZRIA and Suzi Chin for Maggy Boutique, you can be assured that the gowns are fashion forward. What sets SimplyBridal apart from other online retailers is that their dresses are custom-made. That means, no matter what size you are, your dress will be made to fit you and on the off-chance it doesn’t (especially if you’ve become a gym freak within the 40-45 days order time frame), there’s a 30-day risk free return policy that’ll give you the peace of mind. Dresses are currently shipped to the U.S., Canada, U.K., Australia and New Zealand and their expansion plans mean that they may well be shipping to you (if you don’t live in any of their current shipping zones) very soon, so keep an eye out. For now, you can get a glimpse of what they produce by entering the veil giveaway at the bottom of this post!

So, where do you start before placing your order? Shelly Adams, Relationship Manager for SimplyBridal advises brides to do a search on their site for dress shapes that they like before heading into a dress shop to try on gowns in the shape of interest. Enlist the help of your bridal party so they can give you honest opinions so that if you look ridiculous in a lace dress, they’ll be sure to let you know. Follow the guide on how to take your measurements on SimplyBridal and click away. Who would’ve thought buying a wedding dress could be as simple as a few steps? There’s even a collection for bridesmaids with a variety of colours and styles that’ll make your wedding planning relatively stress-free.
