The Designer Vintage Bridal Show

I’ve been invited along to the Designer Vintage Bridal Show at Hagley Hall in Worcestershire, and can’t wait – the pictures look awesome.   If you like vintage gowns from the ’20s through to the ’70s (I wonder when the ’80s will become vintage.  Though on second thoughts, I hope it’s not too soon, seeing as I remember them clearly.  *gulp*) it might well be worth you trundling along too.

…and I’m back!

Apologies for the lack of blog posts  – I’ve had the week from hell. Four client’s websites were hacked (oh, what fun), but after several very late nights and stress levels through the roof, I think the end is in sight.

See you next week!

New Design

Wedding Gown Town has undergone one last (I really hope!) facelift – we’ve decided what direction the branding of the blog and company should head in, and are unifying it across the board.  Anyway, I hope you like it, and if you have any probs with how the site renders in your browser, please do let me know.  *Whew*.  Time for a celebratory glass of wine, methinks!

Pippa Middleton Wedding Dress

If you fancied the dress that Pippa Middleton wore as a bridesmaid at The Wedding (which was indeed very nice – so nice in fact that it raised the blood pressure of many men across the globe), why not pick up a similar(sort of) one from Motasem here» (at only £695, it seems a bit of a bargain).  – Keren

THAT dress (or should I say THOSE dresses)

Kate Middleton may well have changed wind patterns at the collective universal sigh of satisfaction at the sight of her wedding dress  – it was everything it should have been and then some.  Exquisite, simple, clean lines in only the way seriously wonderful designers seem to achieve; beautiful lace, and modest yet sexy.  Very fine indeed.  And her evening dress was just as beautiful in a similar way, minus the lace.  Well done, Princess William of Wales (and Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen).

(Sorry, I don’t know who the original credit for these pictures go to – let me know if you know…)

Well hello there…

I think it’s time to stick my head out from under this rather cosy rock I’ve been living under these last four months. And what a four months it’s been.  Wills and Kate got engaged, there was a rotten earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand, and another rotten earthquake in Japan. Two mornings I’ve woken up to news of bad earthquakes and felt sick with dread at the knowledge that people I loved were at the epicentres (my brother lives in Christchurch, my best friend was holidaying in Japan).  Both are fine, thankfully, though my brother’s house not so much.

Sandwiched in-between all that was some bad health news (not terrible, I’m not going to keel over or anything, hopefully…*gulp*) that I’ve now mostly managed to get my head around, along with other work that has had to take precedence (paying the rent and all that).  Thus I haven’t been feeling up to posting.  Heyho. QUITE glad those four months are behind me.

SO ANYWAY, I’m back, and raring to go.

The National Wedding Show

It’s the National Wedding Show time of year again, and this year they’ve included us bloggers – I’m going to be blogging at the show on Friday next week, which is exciting!  Details for both London and Birmingham shows, opening times, and where to go all available on their website ».

The London show starts tomorrow.  I’ve been before, and if you’re in the market for anything wedding oriented, it’s well worth the trip.  Catwalk shows, beauty advise – the whole shebang.  Have fun!
