TO HAVE AND TO HOLD

It wouldn’t be a proper British summer without a good wedding to attend. If you know of anyone getting married this summer, they will have probably tied down most details; the cake, the flowers, the table plan and the dress will be hanging up (covered up) waiting for the big reveal.

When it comes to choosing ‘the dress’ most brides-to-be know the type of dress they are looking for. The most popular style of dress over the last few years has been the strapless fitted bodice, with full skirt. According to a study by TheKnot.com and WeddingChannel.com, 73 per cent of brides last year opted for a strapless design, but thanks to The Duchess of Cambridge and her gorgeous lace & satin Alexander McQueen dress, the trend is now changing. She has influenced a real shift in wedding dress design with brides choosing lace, long sleeves and illusion necklines, all inspired by Kate’s dress. In fact, Kate’s wedding dress is so famous; it even has its own Wikipedia page.

The best kept secret (for now)

 

Make your special day extra special

Make your special day extra special

 It’s the question on everyone’s lips; who gets the task of designing Kate Middleton’s wedding dress? And more  importantly what will it be like? Will she go flamboyant and go for a big dress or opt for something simple and elegant? Rumours are rife about who might get the job and we’re sure that a lot of effort will be going into keeping the dress maker a secret, for as long as possible anyway. We’re sure however that it won’t take long for someone to spill the beans and find out the truth about the designer to the royal wedding.

 A wedding dress is one of the most important things to get right on your wedding day, save for finding the right man to marry but usually that’s already been a while in the making. However, just as important as having the right dress is what is worn underneath. The style of underwear needs to fit the style and shape of the dress as well as allowing the wearer to feel comfortable and supported all day long as this is paramount to how the bride will feel on the big day. No matter how expensive the dress is, wearing your old strapless bra underneath will do everything to make you feel less than special. Although with a more or less infinite budget we’re positive that Kate won’t have a problem finding the right lingerie to go with her elusive wedding dress. Not every bride-to-be is as lucky, but don’t panic, Bravissimo has a whole range of bridal lingerie to suit every taste as well every dress in sizes D-KK. From straps to strapless, bodies to basques, plus don’t forget the swimwear for the honeymoon and extra special sets to ensure your love life is as hot as the honeymoon destination!
