There’s nothing more exciting than when bridal designers unveil their latest collections. And it was no exception when Vera Wang revealed her Spring 2013 Bridal Collection on her blog.

Inspired by the colour of love, red – which is also the traditional Chinese wedding colour – Vera Wang’s latest bridal range is simply beautiful. Offering fairytale-like, ethereal wedding dresses, featuring lots of intricately layered ruffle and corset solhouettes that give you waists to die for. If you’d rather keep to the more classic ivory, each design can be made to suit your taste, but we love the fiery passion in these gowns.

Which one is your favourite?

Guest fashion: Five yellow dresses that are perfect for a spring wedding

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on April 4th, 2012

With Easter just around the corner, we’ve been thinking a lot about the colour yellow lately. This can be a particular difficult hue to wear, depending on your skin tone and hair colour. Rule number one: easy on the fake tan. Rule number two: make sure you find a tone of yellow that suits you.

If you’ve got a spring wedding to attend and are thinking about wearing this blossoming  shade, here are five great choices from a Grecian inspired piece to a 50’s rock n’ roll dress.

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on March 29th, 2012

The new collection of Spanish bridal designer Jesus Peiro is an explosion of bridal beauty. It mixes flirty lace and feminine details with more edgy, clean lines.

Hazaar of London 2-in-1 wedding dresses

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on March 26th, 2012

Having several wedding dresses to change into on your wedding day has become somewhat of a trend (especially among the rich and famous). But what if you’ve fallen in love with a specific dress and would like nothing more than to wear it throughout the day, yet would like a different look at the reception – or simply don’t have the money to spend on two dresses?


Hazaar of London has thought of this with their bridal collection. Each design is fully versatile, created to take brides from day to evening without hindrance. The adaptable creations (yes that’s two dresses in one!) make the perfect day possible: walk down the aisle looking classically beautiful in a full-length gown and show off your dance moves in the evening in a short showstopper.

Offering timeless romance, vintage glamour and versatility, each gown is made-to-order in beautiful fabrics sourced in the UK.
