HOW TO PICK THE RIGHT WEDDING DRESS WITH EMILIA WICKSTEAD BRIDAL
Shopping for a wedding dress is one of the most exciting parts of getting married, and since my wedding is planned for 2018, I thought I’d better get a move on! Lucky for me, Emilia Wickstead has just launched a 10-piece collection for brides-to-be, so I had to book a consultation at Emilia’s luxurious bridal showroom on Sloane Street. I brought my girlfriends along with me to treasure this special moment. The experience did not disappoint. After a toast with chilled champagne, it was time to try on my first wedding dress.
You probably thought I would try on something elaborate or sparkly because I am a jewellery blogger after all! But I have something else in mind. Bridal trends can change overnight and so too can our perceptions change. That’s why I like Emilia Wickstead as she offers a wide range of classic and contemporary bridalwear to suit all personalities. Her signature silhouettes, voluminous with high necks and T-shirt bodices, capture the allure of the 50s Parisian salon. So chic, so now. The first collection includes nine dresses and one jumpsuit. Lots to choose from and all ready to try on! Keep reading to see which dresses I tried on. I’d love to know which ones you like the best. After showing the photos to my fiancé, it gave me a good idea of his favourite style. I still have to decide, but the Helene wedding dress was the one he thought suited me the best.
It’s easy to get lost in the excitement of trying on wedding dresses and forget about the location of your wedding. Your wedding dress doesn’t just have to be the right one for you, it also has to fit in with your venue. I am dreaming about a beach wedding. We are still trying to decide which country, but it made me realise how it can affect your choice of wedding dress. From the length to the weight, if you’re getting married on a beach in a warm climate, a heavy ball gown is probably not the best option. Before this experience I never thought about these things and I feel it is important to share these revelations with you! So this post is dedicated to finding the right wedding dress for the venue. Simply follow these three steps…I definitely will!
