Stay up to date with all that’s new and noted in the world of weddings – we give you the lowdown on this week’s bridal buzz.
‘Tis the season
‘Tis the season to be jolly, and Ecoya is celebrating by producing a range of candles in scents that encapsulate the season. With flavours such as caramelised plum pudding and fresh pine needles, this limited-edition range smells good enough to eat, and from $50 provides the perfect decorative touch for a festive wedding.
Come fly with me
What could be better than a compilation of the most romantic tunes sung by the legendary king of swing? Walk down the aisle or sway together on the dance floor while you are serenaded by Frank Sinatra via this compilation album ($56). His soulful voice is the perfect soundtrack to any wedding or honeymoon.
If comfort is your priority or you’re planning a beach wedding, shoe selection is key for enjoyment and practicality on the big day. Select a pair of ballet flats or sandals such as the Oka-b Lucky sandals ($44) for an ultra-chic relaxed bridal look. Finer details such as jewels and metallic tones show class and style while keeping your feet comfortable and able to dance long into the night.
Worried by the thought of your beautiful bridal makeup fading as the day wears on? Maintain that flawless finish by having a mini makeup bag at the ready. We love Jane Iredale’s new miniature makeup kit with all the bare essentials for quick and easy touch-ups on the day. Even better, its compact size means it is easy to carry around and can be discreetly tucked away anywhere.
Are you a member of the Bridal Party? We have one mini makeup bag from Jane Iredale to give away. Enter by emailing your name and postal address to [email protected] with ‘Jane Iredale’ as the subject line.
