We’ve spent a lot of time this year so far focusing on Brides, their dresses, their needs and their whims, but what about the stylish groom? We hope you’ll forgive us Gentlemen, especially when we are sympathetic to the fact that the wedding industry can be so female orientated and focused. Your needs are just as important and we appreciate that your journey to find the right wedding outfit for you is equally as ambiguous.

For instance, the tweed suit, blue suits, casual linen attire and bold prints and braces.
If you are a Groom who simply wants to look his best on your wedding day, without seeming to have tried too hard, but also with a hint of originality, here are our top tips on how to go about this arduous task: Read more

Why not take inspiration from your colours at your wedding venue? If you want to be really creative with your colour schemes and draw upon multiple shades, we have drawn up five unexpected palettes to help inspire you.
The similarity between these palettes are the repetition of colours such as Sage, Blush, Salmon and Gold; this is because each of these colours re easy to incorporate into your wedding set up. For example, sage green in the foliage of your floral arrangements, pale blush and salmon within your bouquet, and flashes of gold added with the help of a tin of spray paint! Colours such as Bright Red, Yellow and Navy Blue may require a little more detailed research. Read more

You may have noticed a thread of similarity between our recent blogs and that is the wedding dress trends for this year. So far, we have looked at the floral dresses, pantone dresses, tulle dresses and now…wait for it…bows.
No, we’re not joking, it really is like being transported into the 1980’s. Be it small, pretty and decorative, or huge, unmissable statement bows are all over the bridal designer catwalk. Top designers Victor & Rolf and Oscar De La Renta have gone big and bold with their designs, elegantly placed against simple silhouettes. Other designers feature bows on a smaller scale, such as Reem Acra and Monique Huillier.
