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
Bling alert! We’re so excited for the new ‘I Am’ Autumn/Winter 2014 collection from Kagi Jewellery. The versatile (and reversible) designs are a great way to infuse your bridal ensemble with personality and flair. Keep an eye out – the ‘Purple Reign’, ‘Cubist and Geometric’ and ‘Pink Blush’ collections launch in April.
For the girls
Hitting the shops for bridesmaid attire this weekend? If you're in Auckland, make sure you swing in to K Road's Hera Bridal – the design house's JOLI 2014 bridesmaids’ collection is on the racks, and we couldn't be more in love. Available ready-to-wear or made-to-measure, the elegant and uber-femme chiffon and silk creations come in a mix of subtle pastels and bold hues – there's a look to suit all palettes and visions.
Looking to give your celebration a rustic edge? Be inspired by the new range of disposable cutlery from The Pretty Baker, ideal for dessert bars, bridal party get-togethers and easygoing wedding receptions. The new range features wooden utensils, plates, crafty noodle boxes and paper straws that are both affordable and stylish.
Win win win
If you’re after the perfect tool for creating your wedding invitations, decorations, favours, or a scrapbook at the end of it all – we’ve got what you’re looking for. Watch your vision come to life with Brother’s new ScanNCut machine – the world’s first home and hobby cutting tool with a built in scanner.
In exciting news, we've got one to give away to Bridal Party members (haven't signed up? Do so here). To be in to win, members just email [email protected] with your name, postal, address, phone number and the subject line 'Scanner' and the ScanNCut – valued at $699 – could be yours.
Dress with sentiments
Calling all Canterbury brides! Australian designer Gwendolynne's dresses are now stocked in Christchurch’s Mille Feuille. The classic beaded designs are delicately handcrafted to reflect a vintage style – soft, romantic and timeless. The collection fits perfectly with the Mille Feuille studio, which features a mix of local and international brands and has recently reopened in the Christchurch rebuild.
