Buying bridesmaid dresses online is the perfect solution for couples whose bridesmaids live far away. (This is so often the case these days!) For example, Susie was your best friend at school and you’ve always known that she would have a special role at your wedding, even though she now lives several hours away. If this situation sounds familiar, then perusing the vast amount of choice on the internet might be a great option. You can even do it together if you use Skype or Facetime. Let’s say you want to review designer bridesmaid dresses. Firstly pour yourself a glass of wine (optional) turn your smartphone towards the computer screen so Susie can see, and have a look at what’s available. Susie knows what colours and styles suit her and most dresses online will provide more than measurements and fitting guidelines, than you actually need, so you should be able to choose a design that you’re both happy with.
Tips for buying dresses online
When you place your order, make sure that you put Susie’s address as the delivery address. This will save you sorting out the postage at your end. When it arrives, she will be able to model it for you via your video messaging service (what did we do without Skype??) and if it’s the wrong size, you’ll probably be able to return the dress and exchange it for a new size within 14 days. Make sure Susie knows to keep the tags on until she’s sure that the dress is not being returned. Shopping online is fun. You’re more likely to find the perfect bridesmaid dress this way, than restricting yourself to the shops in the high street!
Have a good time shopping for dresses online with your Susie! x

The Burlesque wedding is the new cool trend in marriage fashion. It has shed its slighty iffy image and is now globally embraced by a number of style icons and the populous at large. Often championed by vintage-lovers and modern knitters as well as the usual flamboyant suspects, burlesque is very now. Love it or hate it, it has joined the mainstream. If it’s not your cup of tea, that’s fair enough. But if it is, there are quite a few burlesque-themed wedding suppliers who can help you create your dream cabaret-inspired nuptials.
Woolacombe Bay Hotel was the venue at which Steph and Jamie tied the knot. Their beautiful beach wedding was full of sunshine, smiles and sand. I love their sandcastle-shaped wedding cake!

Gill and Dan’s Cornish wedding took place at Seiner’s Inn in Perranporth. This is beautiful venue has an incredible view of the beach below! Dan proposed to Gill on Christmas Day after they had been going out together for 18 months. They choose Perranporth as the perfect marriage location as Gill’s grandparents used to live in Truro and Perranporth was a place they would always visit when down on holiday. Their fab photos were taken by the brilliant Alchemy Photography.
