Have you ever dreamt of being a Princess on your wedding day? Alfred Angelo, inspired by Disney Fairy Tale Princesses, has now made it possible…


SLEEPING BEAUTY (picture above) – Aurora’s tale is retold with a romantic taffeta gown featuring multiple layers of dreamy gossamer tulle, reminiscent of cascading briar rose petals.  The re-embroidered lace and crystal beaded bodice with rose detail add an elegant touch.

Beautiful and rare


Everybody talks about it and everybody knows it is fashionable…


However, when you are at your local wedding fayre, you can rarely spot a dress like that – and then, as a result, you can rarely find a bride in such a unique dress


Why? I honestly don’t know – just have a look at these dresses…

Wouldn’t you like to look really special on your wedding day?

The National Wedding Sho(w)ck

Wow! What a day! :)


Around 300 exhibitors, a glamorous catwalk, bridal coaching sessions and thousands of brides-to-be with their partners, family members or best friends…

And those wedding dresses – short, long, traditional, modern, in vintage style… and the prices were tailor-made too – wherever you looked you could see a sign ‘50% off’! No wonder the queues to the changing rooms were sooo long! :)


Anyway, I’ve picked up some really good wedding ideas, seen ‘Shoot it yourself’ from Dragon’s Den and I’d like to share it all here. So come back later for some more inspiration and info!

Do you know that positive feeling which suddenly occurs when you’re browsing through different websites in search for something you really need and then you suddenly find it? :) When I was writing an article about bridal shops in Herefordsire I visited many websites – and Dresses for Divas and Diva Events’ websites gave me that exact feeling!

I found so many interesting things there and that was before the Alexander Park Wedding Fayre… And then Sunday the 25th of September came and I finally met Jacqui! I’m telling you, if I had the chance to organise my wedding reception again, I would definitely book Diva Events!

They have everything and even more… because the amazing bonus that made me so excited about them is a wonderful customer service, sense of humour and openess! Well done! :)

You must visit their websites and find out more about:

– Custom made Wedding, Bridesmaid and Prom dresses

– Event planning, hire of chair covers and sashes, favours, table decorations, lighting

2012 Wedding Trends: Dresses, Colours, Details, Honeymoons and many more…

Lots of couples are now planning their 2012 weddings so, to help you out, I have shortly described the upcoming wedding trends in decor, fashion, food, honeymoons, and more. What is the most important? Details and creativity!

Decor – elegant, chic and simple compositions. Instead of round tables you will be able to notice long and elegant ones. Reason? They highlight elegant decorations.

Outdoor weddings – something different, interesting and relaxing.

Back to the past – vintage style, small stylised gifts for your guests, Victorian or tsarist style of wedding dresses – long, full skirts paired with corsets, lace, chokers, and high collars. These are the details that you’ll see on runways in 2012. Many brides will choose to have two dresses – a fuller, more ornate dress for their ceremony, and more casual, sometimes short reception dress.

Details – are more important than ever! Every smallest thing should be carefully planned, so don’t forget about original wedding wignettes, stylish chairs, subtle colours. Ultra-romantic wedding bouquets in soft colours will pair beautifully with the romantic wedding dresses.

Colours – neutrals will make a comeback in 2012, however, with choices that convey tranquility, such as beige and pale blue.

Vintage style in photography – wedding albums that look like the ones from 1920s  are very fashionable.

Interesting and sophisticated menu – simple, traditional dishes served in a modern way are the key to success here.

Wedding cakes – are not flat, they are sophisticated, finely decorated with traditional chic. Natural flowers or fruits replace the artificial ones, and the most important thing – a big and elegant wedding cake table. Full-on dessert tables will become very popular, with smatterings of pies, cupcakes, and other treats.

Honeymoons – must be in distant, exotic places such as Bali, Nepal or even Morocco… :) Forget about Mexico!

Are you getting married in 2012? What wedding trends are you spotting?
