Finding my bridal shoes was something that indimidated me constantly. I take fashion personally on every level. Being a stylist I take great pride in every detail of any outift. You can’t see them at all, so why should it matter. Well, it does. It matters a whole heap of a lot to someone like me who overthinks what shoes to wear to downstairs bodega. The shoes I’m was going to marry the love of my life in couldn’t just be any old pair. They had to be special. And just like the quest for my wedding dress, the hunt for the perfect bridal shoe commenced after the date was set. I even had to look around on sites like Peter Sheppard and others for ages to find some suitable shoes to swap into when I got tired! View Full Post

There’s a lot to think about when you’re getting married. You’ve got to think about who you’re inviting and then work out the venue based on this. Then once you’ve sorted this, what are people going to eat? How will you get to the venue? Do you want an nj limo service? Or a horse-drawn cartridge? Even deciding the theme is a big deal! But there’s one time you can forget all of this, and that’s your bachelorette party! And, my goodness, I was going to make this day last as long as I could!

For my bachelorette, I told my MOH (Maid of Honor) that all I wanted was sand. I wanted to be on the beach somewhere. We didn’t have to go to Miami, or the Bahamas, I just really wanted to hear the ocean. So I and four of my girls went to Tybee Island, Savannah Georgia. I would say so far it’s been one of the most memorable experiences of my wedding process thus far! Planning a bachelorette party with your friends doesn’t have to be expensive, especially as you’ve got the wedding to look forward to and the money you’ve spent on that big day. It’s all about having fun and being able to create memories with your friends. Looking for inspiration on what to get the bride to be for her bachelorette party? It may be worth checking out 40 Chic & Classy Bachelorette Gift Ideas She Will Love for some inspiration. With all this being said, as long as you have a great time, that’s all that matters! But I’m sure they’ll appreciate the gifts too.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I actually celebrated last night with Bren. We went out to Raclette – you know that video where a wheel of cheese is melted onto a plate of food? Yes that place! It was MAGICAL. I came home to a lot of flowers and a little treat from my favourite lingerie shop (La Petite Coquet) that makes me feel like I could happily show all on Nu Bay… Or not but you get the point. What were your plans for V- day? OR, if you’re not currently taken, singles awareness day!

Either way I hope you spread lots of love or get cozy with a cashmere sweater today. <3 with love, Belle

For many years now, the wedding dress has always been in my mind- the dress. It’s the dress you hope your grandchildren admire in tastestfully framed photos lining your mantle. It’s an embodiment of love, and a symbol of utter joy to most. Whether you buy one from somewhere like Winnie Couture Bridal, or you rent one out for the day, you’re wedding dress is very special. Tossing in these very iconic ideologies on bridal gowns, AND someone who works with couture fashion everyday and you have a recipe for a lot of fittings. View Full Post

Hello everyone!! It feels like a lifetime ago that I posted and a lot of you have been wondering where in the world I’ve wandered off to this time. Well as most of you know I’m getting married to my sweet Bren-whom I’ve been with for 5 years now. I’ve been elbows deep in color swatches, work, bridal magazines, and more. He was also busy looking into sites like https://stagmadness.com/prague, in order to plan a lads trip away. I guess I couldn’t say no. I should add that during this whole time I’ve had a smile plastered on my face. There’s so much to look into. From wedding invites, transport decisions such as arriving in something like a wedding limousine, a car, taxi or even a bus to the dress, bridesmaids and so much more.

I have several updates for everyone. View Full Post
