A Unique Way To Arrive At Your Wedding
Date: April 27, 2007 • Author: Emily • Filed Under: Budgeting & Funny & Transportation & Unique Ideas

Whether you choose a vintage car, a stretch limo, a horse-drawn carriage (á la Jordan and Peter Andre’s wedding) or even a helicopter, there is one important consideration for a bride when choosing her wedding transportation and that is reliability. The last thing any bride-to-be wants is to arrive late for her own wedding!

That is why I was surprised to read about bride Kirsty Ainsworth. For her nuptials in Macclesfield dressed in her full-length white beaded satin wedding dress she strolled down the road from her Mum’s house to her local bus stop with her bridesmaid and patiently waited for the No 10 bus to take them both on the five-mile, 20-minute route to Macclesfield Register Office. I’ve heard of hiring a vintage red London double-decker bus and have even attended a wedding where the guests were ferried around in such a bus but I have never heard of the bride catching a lift on a public bus.

According to Manchestereveningnews.co.uk Kirsty said,

"I just wanted to do something a bit unusual and have a day to remember. I did get a few beeps, some waves and quite a lot of funny looks while I waited for the bus.”

We all know how unpunctual buses tend to be so she was very brave to risk this! I guess it provides the bride with a wonderful story to tell people about her wedding day and of course it will have saved her money – a £3.20 bus ticket compared to the average £300 spent on wedding transportation is a superb saving!

78 Free Wedding Tips And Book

As you plan your wedding you will receive advice from just about everyone. Friends and family have a million and one tips to pass on, in fact here at Wedaholic I have been offering tips galore. For example tips on wedding djs, getting guests to mingle, giving a great speech and tipping wedding suppliers to name just a few!

To give you a flavour of what to expect I have copied the types of wedding tips you will receive below:

Sample Tip 1 :

At the reception hall, fill baskets in the bathroom with miniature hand lotions, breath mints, hair sprays, and hair gels for emergency touch-ups. You may also want to put out a basket with a few inexpensive pairs of pantyhose and
some clear nail polish.

"Thanks for all the tips..and for making them genuinely "free".... the tips I found most helpful of your's were about etiquette ... it helps to remind brides of other people's feelings when they are getting caught up in their own! And that idea about giving framed pictures to the parents is one I will definately do! Blessings!" - Suzanne, US

Sample Tip 2 :

Don’t forget grandparents and other relatives who may feel “left out” during the preparations before the wedding. Take a camera along when you are shopping for your dress or looking at flowers.

Send pictures with a quick note that says, “Here’s me rubbing my feet after trying on shoes that were murder!” Or “Aunt Joan, the flowers were beautiful, but I wish you could have been there.”

"Just wanted to thank you for all of the wonderful tips! I enjoy reading them every week!! I will use you're advice throughout the planning of my wedding and on the big day! Thanks again" - Dan

Sample Tip 3 :

For bridesmaids' dresses, consider separates, especially if you have attendants whose sizes and shapes vary widely. Skip the bridal stores and check out department stores for evening skirts and separate tops that are made of luxurious fabrics and trimmed with beading or embroidered details.

"Dear Emily your tips have been very helpful to me in planning for my wedding thank you for all of your help, looking forward to receiving other tips from you. Best Regards" - Cornelia, US


Key Bridal Fashion Trends From The Runways Of Fashion Week In New York
Date: April 25, 2007 • Author: Emily • Filed Under: Attire & Celebrity Gossip & Celebrity Weddings & Dresses & Industry News & Unique Ideas

If you are having trouble finding your dream wedding dress then why not have a look at these. Last week at New York's Bridal Fashion Week top US designers presented their latest bridal gown creations. The newest trends amongst these gowns included lots of dramatic poufs and layers, high empire waists (very flattering) and stunning gowns inspired by red carpet glamour.

Vera Wang’s bridal collection featured fishtail and one-shouldered gowns, 40’s inspired glamorous dresses and a unique minimalist capri panted pajama suit (which I personally think is cute but not suitable for a bride on her wedding day!). Wang’s distinctive creations also offered eye-catching back details such as dramatic trains, floral appliqués and intricate pleating.

Amongst the superstar designers displaying their work at New York's Bridal Fashion Week was Monique Lhuillier, who famously dressed Britney Spears on her wedding day. According to ETonline.com Monique’s favorite trend for bridal gowns this season are colored sashes, usually in silver or a muted color to accentuate the bride’s waist.

Keep up-to-date with bridal gown trends and take a look for yourself.

One of the much anticipated highlights of New York's Bridal Fashion Week was the unveiling of the "Kirstie Kelly For Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings" inaugural collection. Designer Kirstie Kelly produced her very own themed wedding gowns inspired by classic Disney heroines including Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Ariel, Band Jasmine. The dresses, priced between $1,100 and $3,500, are said to be designed to be perfect for any princess on her wedding day. Take a look at the collection and see whether any of the Disney princess styles appeal to you.

Happy dress hunting!
