Mia Mia 2012 Collection

Mia Mia have released their 2012 wedding gown collection, and (this is a first for me – no, really) never have I before felt compelled to slather a collection of photos all over my body :D.   They are deliciously rich and creamy, like an expensive moisturiser or an exceptionally good slice of cake.  And testimony to the fact that investing in beautiful photos makes your product just that much more desirable.  Drooling over photography aside, the dresses are equally delicious.   Mia Mia never fail to deliver beautifully fashionable gowns that are downright pretty, yet not meringue-esque.  Check out more on the Mia Mia website »

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.

Designer Spotlight: Paula Del Vas

Paula Del Vas is another new (to me at least) designer who I stumbled across recently.  I’ve found myself more and more drawn to fashion forward wedding dresses of late, and her designs well and truely fit into that category.  Beautiful lines, completely wearable gowns, with the odd slightly avant garde design thrown in for good measure.

Designer Spotlight: Kisui

I’ve just discovered Kisui.  There is one word that nicely sums up their gowns, and that is ‘wow’.  Simple, clean lines, beautifully put together in the latest fashions to create deliciously beautiful wedding gowns.

They’re based in Germany so I’m not sure about the stockist status for elsewhere, but I’ll get in touch with them to see. Meanwhile, have a look at these beauties:

Wedding Dress Designer for Mila Kunis in Ted

If you’ve joined the ranks of admirers of the beautiful wedding dress worn by Mila Kunis in Ted, you officially have good taste. A gorgeously warm taupe/gold colour, her wedding gown was designed by the inimitable Monique Lhuillier – a designer whose work is so delicious, it gives you eye ache.

Now oddly, the dress used is from a couple of seasons ago – called Amelie – and it’s not available anymore.  🙁  HOWEVER.  Monique Lhuillier has many other gorgeous creations, some in a similar vein.  Here are some other mermaid/fishtail concoctions from Monique Lhuillier that may just fit the bill.
