Everything from delicate lace or shimmery sequins to luxurious fur – faux of course, capelets can be the perfect accessory to a brides gown.

Whether you want to keep away the chill in the night air or add a little something to your gown a capelet is a must!

The Daily Collective: Something Blue

2 May

Something Blue: Nails

On your wedding day you need something new, old, borrowed and blue. One of our fave blogs Oscar PR Girl uploaded the above image of a model in Oscar de la Renta Bridal showing to-die-for nails painted in a pale shade of blue.

We are totally in love with this look and think nails painted in shades from midnight  to pale blue would be a gorgeous addition to your wedding day look.

Of course you don’t have to stop at blue you could make a statement in any shade of polish. We personally love the OPI selection at Melli Cosmetics in Terrigal but her Minx Nails are what have us head over heels!

Spotlight On: GG Events

GG Events

Intimate or grand, elegant or casual GG Events are a boutique event styling company on the Central Coast who create beautiful and inspiring spaces.
We asked GG Events for the current trends and what couples are looking for when it comes to styling their weddings.
Over to you GG Events…
__________________________
Wedding styles have changed dramatically in the last few years, gone are the simple glass vase and candle centrepieces and in their place are pieces to reflect a couples personal style.
Our couples don’t want a cookie cutter event with a theme or colour scheme, they want to incorporate their style and personality into their wedding day.
We love completing a wedding set up and hearing that guests could feel the couples personalities shine through in every aspect of their big day. Wedding styling has become such a personal thing.
Current trends we are seeing embraced are rustic, earthy and natural tones. The vintage look while still popular is being combined with bright flowers, coloured glasses etc to take the vintage feel to a fun new level.
Make your wedding day a true reflection of who you are as a couple.. Event styling is limited only by your imagination!

Spotlight On: Suzy O’Rourke Millinery

5 Mar

Suzy O’Rourke Millinery

Working from her salon/studio in Sydney, Suzy O’Rourke is the woman who handcrafts luxurious headpieces for brides to adorn on their wedding day.

Your headpiece is the second most important item on your wedding style list right under selecting your gown. Your headpiece is a statement piece and while it is important for your personal style to be reflected, you must choose with care because, like your gown you will be wearing it all day.

Suzy O’Rourke has a stunning bridal range or for the bold bride we suggest her Gilt Collection 2012. You can also collaborate with Suzy to design a custom headpiece.

Finally, remember to store your headpiece correctly after your wedding. It is essential that you treat it with care like your gown and store it properly.

We would like to say a big Thank You to Suzy O’Rourke for allowing us to write a piece on her beautiful millinery work and for permitting us to use photo’s from her website.

The Daily Collective: Ombre`

The Ombre` Effect

The ombrè effect is taking the wedding world by storm at the moment. Everything from gowns to invitations and flowers are getting the ombrè treatment.

For those of you who are new to the ombrè effect it is essentially taking a colour in its darkest shade and graduating down to the palest shade or even until it fades to white.

We heart this trend in a big way because you can either use this effect throughout selected areas of your wedding or just take one piece like your gown or wedding cake and make a dramatic statement with colour.
