FLORAL FRIDAY - BRIGHT BRIDESMAID BOUQUETS

30 May 2014

Pop! Pow! A gorgeous way to add a splash of colour to your wedding is through the bridesmaid dresses or flowers. Sometimes, it can be tricky to match vibrant hues together - especially if you reaaaally want colourful flowers AND bridesmaid dresses (we don't blame you, we're suckers for anything eye-catching!). In order to match colourful bouquets to bright bridesmaid dresses, just follow these simple steps:

  • Choose a block colour as your bridesmaid dress, or else the entire combo may become a little busy!

  • A simplistic dress design will allow you to be more creative with your flowers - anything too detailed might take the attention away from your amaaaazing bouquets.

  • You have two options: choose flowers that complement the colours in your bridesmaid dresses, for example, a gradient of purple hue OR choose the opposite of the colour wheel. This means that if your main girls are wearing a purple dress, incorporate yellow into the bouquet, or if they are wearing turquoise, create orange arrangements for them to carry. This will ensure the colours really POP!

  • Don't forget to check out SA's finest florists at our interactive online Wedding Directory here...

CELEBRITY WEDDING DRESSES

30 October 2013

There are some celebrity brides who capture our hearts not only with their romance, but with their enchanting bridal style. Join us as we count down our top five fav wedding dresses from the past couple of years...

5. Aoife Cogan

Model Aoife Cogan shone in an Amanda Wakeley gold-embellished sparkling halter-neck wedding gown during her nuptials to her rugby star husband. The Grecian style creation was graced with a boho touch, thanks to a stunning pearl headpiece that sat upon her flowing curls. It doesn't get more beautiful than that!

brides of adelaide magazine - celebrity wedding - wedding dress - bridal fashion


4. Jodi Gordon

Australian actress Jodi Gordon's drop-dead-gorgeous J'Aton gown was a definite winner in our eyes. Strapless, with scalloped lace and a beautiful train, the gown flaunted Jodi's fit figure and polished shoulders. Rumour has it that Jodi's ornate ensemble took a total of 300 hours to make...so worth it!


brides of adelaide magazine - celebrity wedding - wedding dress - bridal fashion

3. Hilary Duff

Recognise this much-talked about creation? Hilary's hand-embellished mermaid style gown is by none other than the iconic Vera Wang and fitted the singer / actress like a glove. The exceptionally romantic blush tulle and organza, decorated with blooms, was especially made by Vera for Hilary. Lucky gal!

brides of adelaide magazine - celebrity wedding - wedding dress - bridal fashion

2. Millie Mackintosh

Millie was a breath of fresh air in her elegant, but refreshingly casual wedding gown during her ceremony to Professor Green. The vintage lace gown was modernised with an on-trend peplum skirt and the outfit would not have been complete, of course, without a classic white pair of Louboutins.

1. Rebecca Judd

Yep, Mrs Twigley still has our hearts soaring in her highly-coveted J'Aton masterpiece. The incredible gown continues to inspire brides who crave a little extravagance on their big day. Kudos Bec, you absolutely nailed it.

THE BRIDAL WHITE PANTSUIT

28 October 2013

Style file: the white pantsuit! A fashion-forward option for the anti-bride. Totally chic, comfortable and an incredibly unexpected twist on typical bridal fashion. We love the idea of white pantsuit for your wedding day - it's fresh, sleek and would look so Hollywood with a bright red pout. This look is definitely a fab idea for ladies blessed with long legs, as the pantsuit would accentuate height. Are you a shortie? Don't stress - wear it, OWN IT!

Playing around with gorgeous drapery and defined necklines, vintage glamour is represented exquisitely in their design aesthetic this year. The gowns are feminine, highlighting the beauty of a woman’s curves, and refreshingly unique. We simply love Sok’s innovative approach to bridal fashion; her distinct designs bring an opulent dose of high-fashion to our fabulous Adelaide bridal industry.

We were lucky enough to catch up with Sok to find out exactly what inspires her creative mind...

What drew me to the bridal fashion industry… I am a self-taught dressmaker and studied design for a couple of years. My business has been created with love and appreciation for art, design and fashion. I create gorgeous gowns for women who appreciate the same pleasures and for those who appreciate my skill. I became a designer and dressmaker in Adelaide purely because I had not seen very many gowns that intrigued me as much as the designers interstate and overseas had.

My favourite bridal fashion industry leader…Vera Wang - her designs are creatively engaging to so many women. She challenges herself with design from beautiful to bold and outrageous. I think Vera Wang can merge into any type of design so flawlessly whether it is bridal, ready-to-wear, resort wear, perfumes and home wares.

What inspires me… I have a love for detailing and I see a lot of gorgeous work from other designers. I enjoy the challenge of recreating something completely different, yet with similar elements such as draping, beadwork or cuts.

My approach…my designs are delicate. Every detail has been carefully thought through and hand finishes are strategically placed. I work with the fabric and understand the way it moves and breathes. I start with the basic fundamentals, such as working with a strong silhouette, then work on adding, cutting or changing elements to suit my client’s needs.

Career accomplishments…showcasing in the Adelaide Fashion Festival in 2012 has been one of my biggest achievements, as I was able to stream into the fashion field in addition to bridal.

The first thing I do when I step into work…switch on my computer and turn on some music, check my emails and have a glass of health juice. I find when I have fed my musical tastebuds I feel inspired throughout the day.

A typical day at work… involves a lot of positive mental thoughts so I generally start the day with a morning run or a yoga session. I check/respond to emails at 8am and work through my assigned workload for the day. It could be cutting patterns, sewing, ordering fabrics, designing or organising appointments. On Sundays I plan my weekly work schedule to stay organised.

My favourite wedding story…my favourite wedding so far has to be one of my client’s Alysha. I had the opportunity to design a gorgeous slinky silk satin gown for her wedding in Venice. I loved how she spoke about her plans about marrying her best friend, her friendly nature and meeting her lovely parents during her fittings made the experience so beautiful. I’ve always wanted to see Venice and having someone wear a Malachi gown overseas at my dream destination was a bonus!

My favourite place to shop in Adelaide…my husband and I enjoy taking our kids to Tanunda to walk on the main strip. We love getting ice-cream, visiting op-shops and looking for new treasures for the home or garden.

My favourite place to eat in Adelaide…British India - I love their food and the restaurant interior.

The top of my shopping list…some new exercise gear; I have started a new training program and new programs need new outfits and shoes!

My idea of a good timea lazy Sunday afternoon with good food, wine and great company in the sunshine.

When I am not at work you will find me…in the garden with my daughters. We enjoy planting native plants and shrubs to attract the native birds to visit our property.

What makes me laugh…I can laugh at anything now, as I am pretty random. I don’t take life too seriously and enjoy everyday as it comes.

I can’t live without…music. It clears up the mind when you’re cloudy and soothes you when you’re tired.

Stuck in my head is…”Hall Of Fame” by The Script. It is my work out song and uplifting.

Five words that describe me…friendly, practical, artistic, loyal and ambitious.

My favourite drop…Peter Lehmann Red Wine.

The team at Galia Lahav shared their inspiration..."This season Galia Lahav’s bride explores the French Riviera, sails her yacht and rides her Harley Davidson from the heels of Monte Carlo, to the hot white graveled beaches in Cannes. From the film festival, the Casino and the royal palace in Monaco this is where royalties, actors, super-models, and celebrities meet and this collection is inspired by two princesses, on and off screen Brigitte Bardot and Grace Kelly.

Body-hugging silhouettes, softly embracing each curve, imperial ball gowns, and statuesque red carpet glamour dresses, all in a modern look, but with a wink at the sizzling 60's. Classic silk satins, chiffons, and French laces, Tulle and dotted net, mixed with hand embroidered details, using crystal and pearl embellishments, and antique cross-stitched ‘Gobelins’ medallions and floral motifs."

HERE COMES THE...RING BEARER

13 June 2013

Naaawwww....it's what you're thinking isn't it? How cute are these little lads in their best ring-bearer get up? VERY CUTE we say! Little ring-bearers have a big responsibility - they will be delivering the rings after all, so ensure they look as dapper as can be whilst they're performing their special duties. Here's a few adorable and stylish ideas for the important little man on your wedding day (no, not your husband!). From bow-ties to chinos, suspenders and fedoras, these little guys can be just as stylish (if not more so!) than the rest of the bridal party.

PRIMARY COLOURS

12 June 2013

brides of adelaide magazine - primary colours -

If primary colours immediately take you back to your school days then you clearly haven't been staying up-to-date the big 2013 trends hitting the runways. Designer's have been raiding the crayon box to produce some totally cool combinations of show-stopping red, bright yellow and cobalt blue. Spring 2013 collections saw the likes of Chanel, Stella McCartney, Valentino and Gucci return to classroom basics with styling and couture takes on primary colours. We love this bold trend so much, we're translating it into chic statement-making wedding style. Enjoy!

brides of adelaide magazine - primary colours - brides of adelaide magazine - primary colours - brides of adelaide magazine - primary colours - brides of adelaide magazine - primary colours -

Monochromatic hits of the bright hues is the best way to approach this type of bold styling. Colour-blocking is modern, makes an impact and allows you to mix and match different pieces together. This will ensure decorating is a lot easier - often it is difficult to find primary colour decor. It isn't hard, however, to match a white pair of heels with red nails, throw on a bright necklace or to carry beautiful block colour bouquets. Since you're colour blocking, keep your shapes and colours simple. A bouquet in one bright flower is enough to make an impact - avoid small detail or your styling could end up looking messy.

brides of adelaide magazine - primary colours - brides of adelaide magazine - primary colours - brides of adelaide magazine - primary colours - wedding invitation brides of adelaide magazine - primary colours - brides of adelaide magazine - primary colours -

Simple, bright, vivid and timeless, primary colours are constants in a world where colours are coming and going (a mixture of browns, oranges and olive greens certainly haven't returned in full force from the 70's, have they?) They the base hues of our entire colour palette after all. There's still something so contemporary about this style - especially the monochromatic interpretation made by current designers and the almost 1960's approach on primary colour styling. Whether you decorate in full force, or accessorise with vibrant red, yellow and blue bits and pieces, there's no doubt your guests heads will be turning at the sight of such a beautifully bold decor choice.


brides of adelaide magazine - primary colours - brides of adelaide magazine - primary colours - brides of adelaide magazine - primary colours - brides of adelaide magazine - primary colours - brides of adelaide magazine - primary colours -


Now that the fashion world says that it's okay to binge on primary colours, just remember that everything is wonderful...in moderation. Break up your bright style with a white backdrop and accents. Even a touch of black here and there will keep your decor stylish instead of over-bearing. With that in mind, go crazy! This type of wedding isn't for the conservative folk who tend to hold back! Make that decor pop!

SOUL BROTHER

6 June 2013

grooms shoes - brides of adelaide magazine


It is common these days for brides to ditch the traditional white bridal shoes in favour for some heels with a pop of colour. More and more grooms and groomsmen are opting to show some colour too in the form of brightly patterned socks under their suit pants...but now that suits are getting skinnier and brogues have reached cult status, men can mirror the ladies and wear an interesting pair of shoes on their wedding day. Who says only the ladies can indulge in fashion?

grooms shoes - brides of adelaide magazinegrooms shoes - brides of adelaide magazinegrooms shoes - brides of adelaide magazinegrooms shoes - brides of adelaide magazinegrooms shoes - brides of adelaide magazine


Brogues look cool and suave with skinny suits with a shorter pant hem than normal. If you want to be really creative, a pair of interesting socks will keep the look super trendy, or, if you're really brave, you can show off a bit of ankle. This look is definitely for the fashion forward groom! If you're looking for something a little more low-key, tan brogues are versatile and still edgier than classic black, particularly when worn with a navy or grey suit. If you've got your heart set on a pair of black brogues, try changing the shoelaces to a bright colour that matches your socks.

THE GREAT CAPE

9 May 2013

It may still be warm this week however the winter months are upon us and whilst winter weddings have a distinctly magical quality about them, there’s no doubt the air can get a little chilly! As a bride, you will probably be looking for some chic options to keep those shoulders warm when you’re braving the outdoors!

A cape is a fashion-forward idea that takes the bite off the air but still looks fabulous. We are loving these stunning designs by Johanna Johnson. Not only are they beautifully designed, but they are vintage-inspired, taking on the 1920’s Gatsby trend that the world has suddenly gone crazy for!

VERA WANG SPRING 2014

7 May 2013

Girls! Bridal Fashion Week in New York has just finished – as always, we’re bringing you a dose of the best inspiration from the runways. First and foremost fans of Australian and local designers, it still never hurts to see what is on offer around the rest of the world! Without sounding cliché, one of our most anticipated shows was, as always, Vera Wang. Love them or hate them, her designs are undeniably interesting, from an array or head-turning colours to va-va-voom silhouettes. Wang took a turn from her bright colours of previous years and has produced a dramatic, yet elegant, monochrome collection (trend alert! See our monochrome styling concept for ideas).

Even if you’re a fan of the traditional white gown, these gowns provide some incredible inspiration with their amazing cuts, silhouettes and fabrics. We love the way that Wang has combined traditional styles with ultra-modern in one runway. Lace, princess skirts, fish tails and tulle are on offe for the classic brides, and fabulous cut-outs, panels and mesh fabrics will satisfy the modern brides needs. Once again Wang, we are not disappointed. Sometimes, simplicity is enough to be striking.

TO VEIL OR NOT TO VEIL

2 May 2013

To wear a veil or not to wear a veil – that is the question. The people of Ancient Rome believed that evil spirits would be attracted to the bride, so they covered her face with a veil in order to conceal her face and confuse the spirits, and thus protect her. Today, many brides are braving the evil spirits and leaving tradition behind. In the fashion world, veils are all over the runway, from couture shows from Christian Dior and Giambattista Valli to headpieces designed by Marc Jacobs. Despite the trends, a veil is a personal choice and totally up to individual taste.

wedding veil - brides of adelaide magazinewedding veil - brides of adelaide magazinewedding veil - brides of adelaide magazinewedding veil - brides of adelaide magazine

You need to consider how your veil will work with your dress, face shape, body shape, hairstyle and location. Firstly, identify the main focal points of your gown so that you can complement it with the perfect veil. For example, if you would like to make a stunning low back the feature, choose a shorter veil or an ultra sheer style. If your dress is elaborate and heavily detailed a simple veil would be most flattering. If your dress is simple, a more detailed veil would look beautiful.

wedding veil - brides of adelaide magazinewedding veil - brides of adelaide magazinewedding veil - brides of adelaide magazinewedding veil - brides of adelaide magazinewedding veil - brides of adelaide magazinewedding veil - brides of adelaide magazine

Next step, consider your face shape – not every veil flatters every face! A round face requires a veil that will help make your face look longer and slimmer. Choose a veil that comes to at least your shoulders and preferably with something with volume on top of the head. If your face is square, choose a feminine veil that will soften your frame and add length, such as a circular and cascading style. A rectangle face is usually a bit long, balance it with a style that has width around the face but minimal volume on top. Finally, an oval face suits many styles of veils – lucky you! Time to experiment! Bear in mind the time of year and location – a veil caught on a windy day can be disastrous.

MERCEDES BENZ FASHION WEEK INSPIRATION

11 April 2013

It’s that time of year again. Australia has come alive with the magic, glamour and excitement of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. The time when you cannot open a Facebook, Twitter or Instagram feed without a fashion blogger sharing amazing pictures of their front row experience…not that we’re complaining! We love seeing the surprising and innovative fashions MBFWA has to offer. We have sat back and reflected on the first half of the busy, busy week and chosen our favourite inspiration for wedding gowns and bridesmaid dresses straight from the runway! Enjoy!

Alex Perry, Dyana Kosso, Lisa Ho, Aurelio Costarella, Alice McCall, Bec & Bridge and Camilla & Marc set our hearts racing with unique gowns perfect for the fashion-forward bride.

Alice McCall hit bang on trend with feminine cut outs and Lisa Ho was her traditionally understated, yet cool self with full-length gowns of modern silhouettes. A personal favourite had to be Alex Perry’s figure hugging structured bodice gown with a sexy thigh-high split; so simple but so, so good. Bec & Bridge and Alice McCall had sexy and modern, shorter designs.

Let’s not forget about the beautiful bridesmaids…we are loving the neutral colour palette of the dresses below by Diyana Kosso, Bec & Bridge and Lisa Ho. Neutral, but definitely not snooze-worthy, cut-outs, layers and a-symmetrical designs are the features of these fabulous dresses. Diyana Kosso produced amazing gowns that could be worn by both bridesmaids and modern brides in warm ivory shades.

Lisa Ho went va-va-voom in a show-stopping fire-engine peplum gown with a thigh high split (we’re noticing a trend…), while Alex Perry decided to keep his pop of colour to accessories with a bright yellow belt.

Bridesmaids always look stunning in blue shades. Take a cue from Bec & Bridge and coat bridesmaids in a baby blue pastel shade – modernised with a trendy below-the-knee hem and racer neckline. For a glamorous look, we love this full-length Alice McCall cutout gown in a deep navy.

FLOWER GIRL DRESSES - TUTU DU MONDE

10 April 2013

flower girl dresses - brides of adelaide magazine - tutus

The best part about being a little girl is the joy of dressing up in beautiful clothes, doing a little twirl and feeling like a pretty princess. When we think of sweet costumes, we think of lovely tutu dresses – the epitome of soft and fun femininity. Tutus were originally designed for the ballet in the romantic era to look ethereal and give the ballerinas the appearance of merely floating across the stage. It would be charming to dress your flower girls in little tutus and have them float down your aisle.

These absolutely stunning tutu dresses by Tutu Du Monde are flower girl dresses unlike any we have ever seen and are sure to make any little girl feel special. Your delicate flower girls will sparkle and shine in these embellished tutus, each unique in their design and dotted with sequins, bows, feathers and jewels.

Each tutu is made and decorated by hand and come in an array of dusty feminine colours to suit your wedding theme. Layers of tulle and glittery patterns are the signature features of each dress from Tutu Du Monde, perfect for your mini-members of the bridal party. Vintage inspired sequined boleros are also part of the gorgeous collection and soft jackets for those holding a winter wedding.

We ooh and ahhhed as we gazed through the Tutu Du Monde lookbook in the office, each little tutu was so whimsical and the little models looked truly adorable in them! To be honest we wish we were small enough to float around in one the little tutus. Andrea Rembeck, the designer, described her inspiration as a wonderful make-believe world; “Fairy dust and secret games. Princess dresses and sparkle dreams…at last there is a line of tutus that call to mind a kinder world, a gentle place where little children can imagine being a dainty Ballerina, a helpful fairy and a benevolent princess.”

L'OREAL MELBOURNE FASHION FESTIVAL: RED CARPET RUNWAY

27 March 2013

L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival came alive with a sophisticated collection of breathtaking bespoke gowns from prestigious Australian fashion houses. The spectacular occasion saw LMFF showcase their first bridal show, an event following in the footsteps of Australia’s first ever bridal runway debut at Adelaide’s 2012 Fashion Festival when Brides of Adelaide Magazine presented Bridal Runway Fusion: The Fashion Show.

The exclusive fashion set our hearts on fire as decadent gown after decadent gown was sent down the runway. Luckily for you, we’ve highlighted a few of our stand-out favourites, although let us assure you that narrowing the list down to a mere few beauties was not an easy task! Collette Dinnigan, one of Australia’s most internationally celebrated designers, wowed the audience with her signature delicate pieces. Easily the most wearable collection, Dinnigan successfully appealed to a wide spectrum of brides, utilising a diverse range of fabrics and silhouettes to ensure each and every piece told a different story.

Rachel Gilbert also did a fabulous job of producing a collection that could be plucked straight from the runway and slipped onto a radiant bride-to-be. Classic sweetheart necklines, layers of tulle and detailed bodices made the feminine creations, with vintage 1920s shapes incorporated into her sleeker designs. The bridal outfits were accessorised with a garland of white flowers, proving that the garland headwear trend showcased by bridal fashion powerhouses Carolina Herrera and Oscar De La Renta in S/S 2013 is still here to stay.

Aurelio Costarella’s collection shone with 1920’s sophistication and opulence. Chiffon, silks, sheer head wrap scarves, detailed embroidery, and feather shawls transported the audience to an era of swinging champagne garden parties and roaring jazz. The simply stunning gowns are the very definition of vintage chic.

One of the most fantastic things about the six collections that graced the runway Saturday night was the sheer individuality of each designer. Each artist sought inspiration from unique sources to create truly captivating gowns. Akira looked to his Japanese heritage and the draping silhouette of the Kimono to create his one-of-a-kind collection rich with detail and a hint of the extravagant Victorian period.

The rule with Maticevski bridal is to expect the unexpected, his signature manipulation of traditional silhouettes and use of unique resources bring together a crafted master skill of Haute Couture with a twist of Avante Guard Energy. On the night Maticevski presented gowns that fused soft femininity with structured shapes and materials.

Once again the 1920s reigned supreme as Gwendolynne sent opulent vintage inspired gowns down the runway, the flapper dress evidently has become a must-have for 2013. Sensual and romantic, Gwendolynne’s luxurious couture sparkled with hand-embellishments created with the utmost quality and timeless beauty.

HEART AND SOLE

19 March 2013

Shoes, shoes, glorious shoes. A gorgeous pair of heels is an absolute must on your wedding day; God wouldn’t have given us Manolo Blahniks if he didn’t want us to wear them. Lately, brides are ditching the traditional wedding shoe for something a little different, whether it is a bright colour or a hot platform heel. The current fashion trends have a major influence and as far as stilettos go this season – the sky’s the limit. Style your wedding gown with a pair of white heels and add a touch of glamour with some stylish bling. Feminine cut out shapes are on trend and look amazing with a tan peeping through. If you are a fan of a classic pump shape, snap up a pair with a textured finish to keep your look up to date.

white bridal shoe - brides of adelaide magazinewhite bridal shoe - brides of adelaide magazinewhite bridal shoe - brides of adelaide magazinewhite bridal shoe - brides of adelaide magazine


As for bridesmaids, a silver heel will look great no matter what colour gown you’ve styled them with. The versatile colour is opulent and will finish their outfits with the right amount of sparkle. Just like the brides, the bridesmaids can say goodbye to your typical wedding pump. Modernise their looks with sexy ankle straps and save bridesmaids' feet with a comfortable platform they can dance all night in.

The Hunters and Gatherers collection features earthy tones, vivid jade, turquoise, golds and silvers, romancing the bohemian style. We love the idea of taking a step back from the traditional and adorning bridesmaids in sparkling luxe jewellery unlike any other. Inspired by a girl who lived in Paris for a year and collected trinkets along the way, Samantha Wills describes her pieces as ‘the experience, the midnight walks beneath the Parisian stars. The inspiration, the souls adventure…’

TWO GUYS' BOW TIES

14 March 2013

two guys and bow ties - brides of adelaide magazine - groom fashion


Always on the eye out for new and exciting trends and products, we had to look twice when we came across these dapper wooden accessories by Two Guys' Bow Ties. Yep, these guys (presumably two of them) have reinvented the traditional bow tie, using ‘a variety of rare and exotic pieces of hardwood’ to craft their unique creations. If your husband-to-be and his groomsmen seek to dress down their formal wear, or ‘de-flamboyantize’ it, as designer Tim Paslay puts it, then these may just be the accessory they’re after. Personally, we love them.

two guys and bow ties - brides of adelaide magazine - groom fashion

They’re bows that manage to reflect true masculinity – what, with the woody smell, strong exterior and little bit of softness in the middle (they only use the finest materials and leather). They’re cool, they’re edgy and as the casual equivalent of a bow tie, they will take the flamboyant edge off your groom. Of course.

ELIE SAAB COUTURE - PASTEL PERFECTION

8 March 2013

Elie Saab presented a divinely romantic collection of pastel hues at his Spring 2012 Couture show. Pastel colours are in high-demand and everyone is looking to this memorable 2012 couture show for inspiration. Ultra-ladylike and ultra-sweet, sheer and sparkling powder blues, cotton-candy pinks and minty greens delicately swayed down the runway in intricate embroidery and feminine silhouettes.

We can’t look past the light as air skirts and crystalised tulle flowers as the perfect creations for an opulent wedding dress. If you ever doubted the coloured wedding dress trend, this is the collection that will restore your faith. The frosty pastel colour palette is nothing short of divine and undoubtedly still has women scrambling for a proposal and wedding bells ringing in our ears.

OSCARS FASHION - WEDDING DRESS INSPIRATION

4 March 2013

The red carpet at the annual Oscar awards was, as expected, a walking fashion parade of 2013’s hottest couture looks for the season ahead. Between the display of stunning (and some not so stunning, sorry Anne Hathaway) gowns were a few that gave rise to some serious bridal inspiration. Fashion enthusiasts all over the globe are in agreement that Jennifer Lawrence killed it in her fabulous Dior Couture creation, a structured bell-bottom silhouette we can see trailing down the aisle. Amy Adams looked wedding-worthy in strapless bodice and full ruffled skirt dress by Oscar De La Renta, the soft grey colour providing a subtle tribute to the current coloured wedding dress trend. Amanda Seyfried shone radiantly in Alexander McQueen with a keyhole halter neckline that showed off her polished shoulders. Swept up in the flattering peplum trend, the winner in our eyes (Oscar or no Oscar) was Charlize Theron who perfected modern bride in her pure white Dior Couture gown.

The wedding gown contenders continued beyond the red carpet and into the Vanity Fair after-party, where the likes of Natalie Portman and Rose Byrne sent us into white dress envy. Natalie, forever effortlessly elegant, teamed satin Dior with emerald earrings, proving that brides can wear a column dress and maintain high-fashion class. Rose looked sophisticated ballerina in a Lanvin wrap skirt and backless leotard, a simple style turned bridal with the use of delicate silk. Kate Bosworth pulled off vintage bride in a sophisticated Chanel dress and Allison Williamson’s full-length patterned Valentino gown sent our bridal radar into over-drive. Love it!

PRECIOUS METAL

28 February 2013

Gold was the first metal widely known to humans – and we’ve been obsessed with it ever since! Its discovery was made throughout time in many different locations all over the world and nearly everyone who found it was understandably impressed with its natural beauty and brilliant lustre.

Opulent, decadent, luxurious – these are all words that spring to mind when planning a wedding dripping in metallic hues of gold. Your wedding day is precious, so why not infuse it with the shine of this statement making precious metal.

gold wedding dress - brides of adelaide magazinegold shoes - brides of adelaide magazine table decorations - brides of adelaide magazinegold cake - brides of adelaide magazine

Dip into gold and paint your wedding with a timeless elegance. We think gold looks fabulous and sophisticated when balanced with neutrals such as white and earthy colours, a sparkling combination that is the epitome of classic style. Too many colours will take the look from classy to OTT so keep your palette simple.

Diamonds are a girls best friend, right? Embellish with jewels and crystals for the ultimate in decadence that is eye-catching, yet elegant. Make the most of dazzling metallics by incorporating them all over the styling board, from golden accessories to a chic table setting and shiny metal cutlery. Treat yourself, and guests, to the enviable gold treatment.

STARLETS OF THE SILVER SCREEN

12 February 2013

Paul Vasileff burst onto the Australian fashion scene with his elaborate, elegant and ethereal couture collections in 2007, fusing established style staples with a contemporary edge, creating unique handmade garments that infatuate those with a truly romantic heart. 

Paul continues to cement his mark on the Australian bridal fashion scene with his label Paolo Sebastian as he launches his Autumn/Winter 2013 collection. Paul’s latest collection pays tribute to the ladies of the silver screen, with Audrey Hepburn and Greta Garbo being his greatest inspirations.

“These elegant women exude a certain level of sexuality, whilst still epitomising sophistication,” says Paul. “I searched for months to find the most intricate silver and rose gold laces to create a collection of muted metallics.” The romantic silhouettes and intricate craftsmanship, make Paul’s Autumn/Winter collection unforgettable and we just can't keep our eyes off the amazing slim line silver silk crepe corset gown with beaded lace boat neck...decadently divine!

BOHEMIAN NIGHTS

6 February 2013

Bohemian weddings encompass a mis-matched array of boho beauty in rich colours and interesting textures. We adore the carefree and laidback style of this vibrant wedding theme and how couples manage to creatively infuse their love into every little aspect of the styling. There are no rules when it comes to a bohemian wedding; pre-loved and new pieces come together to create a homely and natural space.

Earthy colours set the base for boho styling, allowing a natural canvas to build and build upon with a combination of bright colours and patterns. Vintage fabrics are charming and can be used as table runners, place mats, flags or any other kind of unique decoration. Coloured bottles and glass will brighten your table settings and gold goes perfectly with the indian-esque bohemian theme.

The relaxed nature of a bohemian wedding means you can have fun with your bouquet and wedding choices; a variety of colours and types can be mixed together, from bridal poppies to succulents. For creative couples who enjoy the unconventional, the boho wedding is the perfect way to express your eccentricities with family and friends on a day to remember.

THE SKINNY SUIT

5 February 2013

If there is one tip you can give your husband before your big day it is this: “honey, you need to buy a skinny suit.” A slim cut suit is modern, edgy and very, very sleek. It is not just a passing phase either, a trend soon to be gone by the winter months - the skinny suit has slowly been working its way into our wardrobe for years and has finally hit cult status. When accessorising the sophisticated slim cut it is important to remember to keep your details in proportion; experimenting with shades and patterns is ideal but chunky shoes and a wide belt isn’t. Keep it simple with a contrasting pocket square, a slim watch and a skinny tie. If you can convince your husband to be to read an instruction manual (for once in his life) ensure it’s our skinny suit styling guide and he won’t be able to go wrong.

SHOE ENVY

1 February 2013

If loving shoes is wrong, we don’t want to be right! We love this gorgeous pair of Chie Mihara bridal shoes in creamy ivory. Yes, the chunky heel is back again – they took a noticeable place on the 2013 Spring runways and have been reincarnated into this stunningly feminine and vintage leather shoe. Grounded by a perfectly proportioned heel, spirited circles cut from the softest ivory leather will showcase polished toes at your wedding. We wouldn't mind them ourselves to show off at balmy summer affairs.

HINT OF MINT

30 January 2013

Can't get enough of the feminine and mystical shades of the sea? Good news! Turquoise is fresh, invigorating and on trend right now. We were inspired by the gorgeous shades of green and blue on the runway at Monique Lhuillier’s Spring 2013 show, particularly the breezy and elegant mint dress featured below. Shades of turquoise and mint look fabulously crisp with white and will have a calming effect on your big day. Pastel nail polish and makeup was also seen all over the runways, a look that we ourselves are sporting in the office (hello, aqua nails!). Minty décor is pretty and soft, try subtle additions such as frosted mint chairs and hanging lanterns, the colour also looks beautiful with bouquets of baby’s breath. Minty fresh!

GO BOLD WITH THE PERFECT GOLD CLUTCH

29 January 2013

Think gold is old? Think again. This year everything is about heavy metal; recent runways foreshadowing 2013 style saw an abundance of gold jewellery, nails, evening wear and trim. At Burberry’s latest show the models shone in chic metallic. Incorporate golden charm in to your wedding day with one of these statement bags, the stunning local versions of Chanel’s 2013 Cruise Collection in Dark Gold Metallic. A clutch is the perfect practical piece to make a statement as it allows you to accessorise with high-fashion golden accents whilst still small enough to remain subtle and elegant. Go for gold and you will feel like royalty on your wedding day.
