Hold onto your bridal mood board ladies, I’m about to confess something HUGE! I am currently having a serious love-hate relationship with Pinterest and Instagram. As you know, both my sister and I have been blown away by two wonderful proposals this year and so quite apart from the fact I have a bridal dress business, I’m all over a dreamy, Snowy Wedding Board and #bohobride hashtag! This is the love part of my bridal-image-searching relationship!
However, what has occurred to me – and I say this as a bride-to-be rather than a bridal dress supplier –is that the modern bride is faced a whole extra level of #BigDayGoals to be achieved. From the soft off-white glow of a perfectly strung fairy light, to the hand-crafted favour tied up with unicorn mane, I can now see oh-so clearly where some of our bride’s more out-there requests have stemmed from!
And so, in the interest of maintaining the sanity of myself, my sister and my fellow-brides-to-be, I’m using this month’s blog to help you channel that #BridesInspo out of the bottom of the gin bottle and into creating a look that’s perfect for YOU. Here are my top tips to help keep you grounded, happy and just feeling gloriously grateful to be marrying the man or woman of your dreams!
So, should you ditch the social media? NO! We love a browse through beautiful bridal shoots – all we’re saying is use these boards and perfect bridal images as a starting point for your inspiration – not as the shopping list for a carbon copy day. Trust your own instincts and let us weave some Apple Blossom Magic to help you look back on your big day, knowing it was picture perfect for YOU! BOOK NOW >>>
