Summer Wedding Dresses

No doubt you have put a lot of thought, planning and preparation into making your big day run as smoothly as possible. Of course for women a huge choice will be choosing your Wedding Dress.

You might consider; what style of dress suits your figure, where your wedding is taking place, the theme of your wedding and so on.
An important factor that people often forget to consider is the time of year / season that your wedding will be taking place. For Wedding’s located in the UK this might not necessarily have a huge impact due to the temperamental British weather, however having said that if you are planning your wedding for the Summer season there are certain style dresses that you might want to consider.

On the off chance that you are lucky enough to select a piping hot Summer Day you probably won’t want to be sweltering in a long sleeved, thick hot wedding dress.

Here are some of our favourite bridal wedding dresses great for the Summer Wedding Season.

7 tips to finding the perfect shoes for your perfect day

For an increasing number of brides to be, the shoes are just as commanding as the wedding dress. At the Bridal emporium we have a selection of shoes to fit every brides perfect day as shoes are just as important! However there are a variety of options to consider when looking for those perfect shoes.

wedding shoe1. You have to wear these shoes…

Wobbling around on heels that are too high isn’t a good look. A lot of Brides forget when purchasing their perfect shoes that they will have to wear them from early in the morning till late at night, so when choosing the perfect pair you have to avoid purchasing shoes that might make your feet pinch or rub. If the shoes you choose are too narrow or too wide, by the end of the night your feet will probably be screaming at you to take them off.

2. Comfort is key
Make sure you wear your wedding shoes in before the big day, walk around with clean feet a few weeks before the day, by doing this you will be able to feel where the shoe is causing any rubbing and give yourself time to make any adjustments and stretch them out . This will also mean that the shoes will be moulded to your feet making them a lot more comfortable for the big day.

3. Sometimes bigger isn’t better
When choosing a shoe with a heel you should be careful what size to go for , make sure you choose a height that is comfortable, if you normally wear flats wear a smaller heel for the day, as a sudden desire to wear 6-inch heels maybe one of serious regret. Also consider if your husband would be embarrassed on the day if you are towering above him in your photos.

4. Have a back up plan
It is quite common to have two pair of shoes, one for the ceremony and one for the reception after. It is also a good plan to have a back up pair in case something happens such as a broken heel. Having a different pair of shoes such as flats means that you can dance the night away! Continue reading

Seriously?… Couple Plan to Have Supermarket Wedding!

Couple Plan to Have Supermarket Wedding

Wednesday 11 February 2015

Morrisons are thought to be playing a major role in the wedding’s features with flowers, food and the colour scheme expected to be influenced by them.

Two residents from Cambridgeshire in England are to get married in Morrisons on March 21 and have started a social media campaign in an attempt to get some famous faces at the event. Kent and London Wedding Photographer comment on the unique arrangements.

This supermarket holds special memories for Rebecca Wooller and Blake Green because it was the only place she was able to go with her boyfriend when ill during the early stages of their relationship. The couple are delighted and surprised by the positive reaction to their news of getting married in the supermarket café on Saturday March 21 with Rebecca excited at the unconventional setting.

She said: “We are overwhelmed and can’t believe it – we honestly didn’t expect to get this much attention! Morrisons have been amazing – they’re even planning on putting down a red carpet for me and want to line up customers along the sides of it so I’ll feel like a princess.

“We’re hoping to get Ant and Dec to come along as well because they’ve been the face of the Morrisons adverts and we love them. I did tweet them – it was more of a long shot really – but you never know!”

Morrisons are thought to be playing a major role in the wedding’s features with flowers, food and the colour scheme expected to be influenced by them. Television presenters Ant and Dec are arguably the most well-known pairing on British screens and are involved in adverts for the supermarket.
