If you're looking to theme out your wedding reception with vintage style accessories then you'd be daft not to skip over to Matalan to look at their range within their homewares department. Not only are they great to look at but they'll leave you and your budget smiling.
For some timeless treats, here are just a few of my style steals for today
Looking for a fabulous vintage hat or fascinator that doesn't break the bank? If so, you NEED to head to Marks & Spencer right here, right now to check out their unbelievably jaw dropping collection.
If you're going to a wedding either as the bride, bridesmaid, mother of the bride or guest and want (like me) to embrace the vintage vibe with a hat or fascinator with vava voom, then you're going to love what I have to share with you.
I love them for their underwear and their scrummy food. I'm not, though, a regular to their accessories section and so was literally overwhelmed to spot some stunning collections in store yesterday - so much so that I couldn't wait to scream back to the office to tell you all about them.
So, less talk more visual girls. Here are just some of my favourites....
All of these come under the £40 mark and so you can look utterly fabulous and still have some pennies left to go check out their equally gorgeous handbags and accessories. Brides, look out for their jewellery - I've bought some beautiful vintage style earrings for my big day this saturday!
Today's post has been sponsored by Net-A-Porter but all thoughts, comments and views are my own.
Girls, you'll know the moment you find THE wedding dress of your childhood dreams; THE designer wedding dress, you've disappeared into your day dreams with only to be bought back to earth by the sound of the hoover; THE spectacular wedding dress you've stepped into after stepping out of 100 miserable ones. And chances are that THE wedding dress isn't actually the one you had in mind at all. Your body loving, thigh hugging fishtail dress is suddenly a distant memory as you stand, looking at yourself in a floor sweeping, chiffon dress of fairy tale proportions. And in those first few precious moments, everyone and everything else disappears into the ether as you stare at the vision in the mirror not quite believing that the stunning princess smiling in her exquisite gown is you! It's that same feeling of sipping your first glass of fabulous champagne - you can't put into words but you know you'll never forget it!
This very intimate and personal sentiment is expressed perfectly in Net-A-Porter's new advertising campaign video and is my featured Friday video today.
If you're ready to disappear into your daydreams with a wedding dress you wish you didn't ever have to take off, then take Net-A-Porter with you. This is for the discerning, luxury brand needy bride who wants only the best of the best - it's a place where designer style, fabulous fit and materials comes together. We know it for it's roll call of fabulous high end designer brands, delivering the catwalk to your door. Many, however, might not be so aware of its wedding shop. It's quite possible (given enough breathing space on your credit card) to drape the whole of the female wedding party with just a few effortless click of the keyboard.
The range is simply breathtaking and selecting just 5 of my faves has been difficult - but for a taster of much more in their store - here I go!
Allow, the phenomenal design masters including Alexander McQueen, Emillio Pucci, Lanvin and Vivien Westwood (believe me, the catwalk of creators goes on even further!) to dress you in their works of bridal art. Let them fill your day with a million magical feelings - why settle for mediocre when mesmerising is so much more exciting?
Its Film Friday and that means a dose of fabulous bridal video inspiration. Today's video shoot of this incredible 1950's theme wedding is just out of this world. With a nod to the timeless JFK wedding with a modern twist, I love how vintage meets 21st century with its bold use of lime green and black.
As pictures speak greater volumes than words, I shall let you sit back and enjoy this amazing wedding, shot by Patrick Pierce
