Bridal Separates To Suit Every Style, Taste and Budget

bridal seperates for every style taste and budget

When I was at London bridal fashion week I was thrilled beyond belief to see so many designers offering separates. Don’t get me wrong, I love a beautiful wedding dress, but I completely adore the idea of walking down the aisle in a skirt and top combo.

You can mix and match styles and really make your wedding day look your own. In fact, this year there are separates to suit every type of bride.

SHINE BRIGHT LIKE A DIAMOND ETSY

Diamonds… gems… all things sparkly. I mean, what’s not to love? Well, the price for one thing. Surely there must be a way to include nods to your obsession with bling without covering everything in sight in Swarovski crystals and chintz?

Oh girl, you know there is!

How to Remember Deceased Loved Ones At Your Wedding

Intimate Halloween wedding by candlelight

By the time a lot of people get married, it is quite likely that they will have lost someone near and dear to them. I’ve had quite a few people email me about this over the past few weeks, so today I wanted to share some simple ways you can include a loved one who has passed away in your wedding day.

While many people might wince at the idea of including a memorial as part of a wedding day (for fear of it being too depressing or overshadowing the celebration), there are many ways that you can honour and include them in a subtle yet special way.

30 Dresses That Prove You Can Get a Gorgeous Wedding Gown for Under £250

amazing wedding dresses under £250

Is it possible to get a beautiful wedding dress for less than £250? The answer is very much “Yes!” so long as you think outside the box a little bit. In fact there are plenty of options for budget savvy brides these days.

Firstly, you should check if any bridal boutiques near you are having sample sales. They will often sell end-of-line or their showroom samples for a lot less than the retail price. Places like Etsy and eBay are also great to browse through, and websites such as stillwhite.co.uk and preloved.co.uk (where brides can sell their pre-worn wedding dresses) can hide some real gems!

The high street is a really great place to look too. Most of the beauties below are from places like Coast, BHS, Monsoon and Phase Eight. All of them do amazing and inexpensive bridal ranges. I’m also loving ASOS right now. They are just killing it with their pretty spring/ summer offerings and so much of their occasion wear is totally wedding appropriate!
