…Fit for a Queen

We are uber-excited about the royal wedding (due to take place in just a few hours!) and we cannot wait to see the decorations (and, of course, the dress). And that got us thinking, our winter theme from the 2011 Decorating Shoot was the perfect colour palette for a royal wedding. Inspired by Wedgwood's Anthemion Blue dinnerware, our winter theme featured a rich cobalt blue and with contrasts of lavish gold, it was unashamedly extravagant and truly regal!

Pronovias 2012 Advance Bridal Collection

The Pronovias 2012 Advance Collection is here! Below are some of our favourite wedding dresses from the Manuel Mota and Fashion collections. 

Manuel Mota Collection… Curves and hips, symbols of femininity, are accentuated with rebrodé lace, swathed with double silk organza or glimpsed under guipure lace. The empire line versions captivate with their high waists or are updated, gathered up in gracious abullonés, producing floaty camisoles scattered with lace.

Fashion Collection… For setting trends softly and subtly, which glow from within, we use soft, refined fabrics like Sofia gauze and pleated Paris organza. Today's woman was the inspiration for these gowns with pure, discreet lines, fitted at the waist or hips by delicate drapes and ruffles.

Sensual and feminine and always with an edgy allure, Vera Wang managed to renew and reinvent her bride for the Spring 2012 wedding season. Romance filtered in through corset fitted tops with sweetheart necklines and pleats. Matching oversized tulle bows around the waist and as headbands. The colour palette consisted of neutral tones of stone, dusty rose, pale nude and even minty green.
