To Veil or Not to Veil

That is the question many brides ask themselves. The options are endless, whether your style is traditional or you want something more unique to suit your personality and of course your dress.
I personally went very classic and simple with a very long, very fine french tulle as my dress was quite detailed with all the ruffles.
Traditional with a twist is a great compromise, like the veil below which has been accented with gorgeous feathers.
Your dress designer is the best person to give advice on the style of veil, headpiece or hairpiece which to complement your gown.

Daily Wedding Inspiration: Wedding Styling

These paper-bag lights are so simple yet the ambiance the soft light creates is so beautiful.

To avoid any unfortunate mishaps look for bags made from flame retardant paper like these.

Daily Wedding Inspiration: Wedding Flowers

I couldn't resist including the stylish couple who selected such an a gorgeously different bouquet. Black calla lillies paired with berries- wow! One look at the bride in her short gown, oversized bow and black heels is enough to know she has seriously amazing style and likes to put her own spin on things.

Happy Valentines Day

Have a wonderful day, celebrating LOVE!
My husband and I will spend our first Valentines Day as a married couple on separate flights to our holiday in New Zealand (long story).
A week together exploring such a beautiful country, where my husband was born and lived until he was 8 in fact, will be heavenly and totally make up for the lonely flight.
