Welcome to September which is notoriously popular for weddings!
September will also mark my first wedding anniversary to my darling husband. I have been reminiscing about the day and of course my beautiful dress (technically "dresses"- yep I did it, I had two, I'm that bride). I tried on a fair few dresses before deciding that having a dress made was the way for me, it was unique, one of a kind and fit me perfectly. If this is the path for you I suggest you research your designer before jumping on board with the best price going around. I went to my designer Ania G Couture because she had made Jessica's dress and I absolutely loved her craftsmanship and attention to detail, using only the loveliest fabrics. She is also, a little eccentric.
I went to her with a simple off the shoulder, figure hugging silhouette and she turned it into so much more, more than I would have ever been able to describe or dream up, I guess there is a reason why I am a teacher and not a designer...
According to a vogue article I was reading, the trends for 2017 will include, off the shoulder dresses, mid length gowns, metallic and colored gowns
and opting for pants instead of skirt! I've searched the web high and low and found some inspiration for you in varying prices and lots Australian made!
P.s - Good luck ladies, and don't forget to hashtag your wedding, even if it's a bit daggy- all of us who weren't invited love a good stalk and admiring session!
