Well, Romania has done it! They have made the world’s longest wedding dress train, according to the Guinness Book of World Records. The train came in at 1.85 miles long. Yes, you read that right! The train & dress were made out of approximately three miles of taffeta and 18 feet of lace. I had no idea there were so many records set for wedding related events. Definitely check them out…it’s fun to see all the hard work people go to hold these crazy records!
Asking your bests to take a place of honor at your wedding might sound simple enough BUT if your loving groom puts so much thought into popping your question, why not do the same for your girls? It can be a lot of fun and absolutely builds the excitement from a mere question to embarking on an adventure!
Consider this entertaining way to pop the question – wouldn’t you love to have this show up in your inbox?
Create a fun and yummy-licious presentation with tiny banners that read “Will you be my bridesmaid?” and place your little banner of joy in their favorite flavored cupcake.
Have a friend who loves accessories? Find a fantastic headband and attach a little note that reads “Will you head down the aisle with me?” (or perhaps “I need help keeping my head on straight!), or pick out a lovely little hat box and fill it with ring pops – yes, those ring pops! – and ask away!
Create a Bridesmaid’s Survivor Kit by filling a pretty box with a compact mirror and lip gloss, measuring tape (for her bridesmaids dress), her favorite candy or gum, Tylenol (for all the headaches you are bound to cause!), travel sized fingernail files, bobby pins and other fun goodies or you can purchase one of these lovelies from My Wedding Favors. Something catchy like “How can I survive without you?” is a sweet way to tag this gift!
Whatever you do and however you ask, I’m sure your ladies will be ecstatic at your invitation and will happily say yes (just like you!).
Well this is something I have never seen before, but is pretty cool! Vera Wang has made an app that allows you to browse gowns, store locations, contains a look book, clips from runway shows & much, much more. Here is the description from iTunes: “Your wedding gown represents more than just a dress. It is the ultimate expression of “you” during a timeless moment in your life. This app is designed to give you both inspiration and information. We encourage you to make an appointment to view our wedding dresses in person and gain personalized advice from our experienced wedding consultants.”
I hope that more dress designers will jump on this bandwagon, so you can have all the details you need at your fingertips. Makes shopping for your dress that much easier!
The past two weeks “Tuesday’s Trendwatch” has focused on defining your silhouette. Now WedCandy wants to know what YOU have chosen…. which one is your top pick? the dress of your dreams? or your bridal gown choice?
This summer is going to be all about showing off a good hat and I’ve rounded up my favorite from the UK Vogue top 100. You can see all of them here. Even though I don’t wear hats (I wish I did!) I think they’re really fun and can make a great statement, especially for bridesmaids. With the Royal Wedding last year I think we’ll start seeing more hats and fascinators incorporated into weddings this year. You can find pretty much any style, pillbox hats with little fascinators, ones with feathers, beads and sequins, extravagant, or simple. There really is a hat for everyone!
