• A splash of Spring!

    Posted by Aimee Green

    With Spring less than a month away (...finally!), now's the time for us to start looking at THE colours of the Spring wedding season... 
    Blush tones... we don't think blush tones will ever go out of fashion, particularly for bridal, however we are seeing a swing towards nudes and naturals over shades of pink. Easy to tie in flowers and accessories, nudes and naturals offer a contemporary colour palette, but also plenty of options for your bridesmaids to wear again post-wedding - always a bonus!
    Burgundy, merlot, garnet, ruby... definitely the colours of Winter, we expect to continue to see deep and rich reds featured across weddings throughout the rest of the year. Our popular picks? Zara in Merlot and Samantha in Burgundy. Teamed with a nude heel and simple, classic accessories, this is a look we know won't date. 
    Nothing says Spring like a pop of something bright! We know it's not a traditional colour palette, but we are loving the yellow of these Jenny Yoo gowns. Not quite a mustard, this shade of yellow offers great depth and richness. 
    Or, for something a bit different, try for a print. Jenny Yoo's 'Inesse' dress is available in both prints and plains. Loving the flowing, romantic style with a soft palette of florals.

  • Netflix & Chill

    Posted by Aimee Green

    If you're anything like me, this weather's got us feeling all 'Netflix & Chill'. In the midst of even the most mild Winter, there's nothing better than having a pyjama day. Ugg boots, blankie, hot chocolate and pooch at the ready to curl up for a few hours of uninterrupted screen time. 


    Check out our best bridesmaid-themed viewing... and yes, this totally counts as wedding research. Relaxing? Tick. Productive? Tick. 
     
    Bridesmaids: Ok, ok totally obvious. But if you can't laugh at someone taking a dump crossing the street in a wedding dress then when can you? And we dare you not to have 'Hold On' by Wilson Phillips stuck in your head for the rest of the afternoon. 

    The Wedding Singer: Even if you're not a fan of the plot (or a guy in his 30's still living in his parent's basement) this is totally worth watching, even if only for the killer 80's soundtrack. And rapping grannie. 
    My Best Friend's Wedding: Julia Roberts in her heyday. Rupert Everett. Cameron Diaz. The guy who played the groom who nobody can remember. If nothing else, this movie just is a classic reminder that we can't all be perfect at everything... cue Cameron Diaz doing a terrible karaoke routine. Make a note for the Hen's Night ladies. 

    Muriel's Wedding: Our favourite Aussie wedding flick. Actually, just one of our favourite Aussie flicks all round. Safe to say Porpoise Spit has had its fair share of wedding drama but who can go past the orange frocks and high fringes of the early 1990's? ... It's Mariel. 

    Four Weddings and a Funeral: Because we just couldn't have a list of rom-coms without Hugh Grant. And a funeral thrown in for good measure. 

    Kick back, pop your feet up and chillax.
