Steam Punk

I have to say, I don’t really know what steam punk is…but from what I gather it’s this – a mad hatter, crazy colour, super duper ott, satin, goggled, gothic extravaganza! Is that somewhere close?

Vintage Glam & Fun

Chris & Carly’s vintage glam wedding was planned with fun in mind..that was it – lets have a blast! The pair didn’t want traditions or fuss to play a part, instead focusing on great style (white bridesmaid dresses oh yes!), a ton of character and a party that they could claim as their own.

Under the Spotlight – Whirlingturban

whirlingturban

Have you been dreaming about a gorgeous vintage style gown but have been afraid of the potentially massive price tag? Well Katherine Robinson of Whirlingturban has the answer!

From a career in Hollywood making glamorous outfits for superstars, Katherine relocated to Bali (!) 8 years ago where she designs and makes vintage reproduction dresses.  Her stunning ready made creations for example start at just $400 in her wedding boutique and for a completely custom dress you’d be looking at prices from only $800. As everything is done online she will even ship out a loaner dress to you to make sure the cut and fit are perfect before she makes your dress.

One if their most popular dresses is the beeeautiful Wing Bust Dress. Not only is the fabric hand woven locally especially for the dress but you can add your own accent colour to match your wedding theme. Whirlingturban has a plethora of accent colour choices and you can even supply your own fabric if you have something more specific in mind.

Thanks to Katherine and the girls at Whirlingturban for taking part in the Under the Spotlight feature, and as a little bonus for you all they have offered a FREE matching bolero to any Rock n Roll Bride reader who quotes ‘Rock n Roll Bride’ when ordering the wing bust dress. Orders must be placed by 13th November 2009 to qualify.
