I am going to be a bridesmaid!!!
My wonderful friends Sheryl and Thomson are childhood sweethearts and are getting hitched on the 27th May and I can't bloody wait.
Sheryl and I have been friends since High School, and I was lucky enough to have her as one of my bridesmaids for my wedding last year.
Sheryl is a stylish chick and so her wedding is sure to be a beautiful affair. Now that we are at the 6 week countdown I thought it would be fun to share some of her ideas with you all.
First up the bridesmaids dresses. Now we are very lucky as the bride has chosen some suitably stunning dresses for us, and they are uber flattering. So needless to say I am very much looking forward to wearing it, it's navy and bang on trend as it is a peplum dress.
We are also going to have an ivory corsage to place on the peplum, with ivory pashminas to complete the look just in case it is a bit cold.
I'll be teaming the dress with the Kurt Geiger version of these Christian Louboutin's (I'm only showing the CL's because I can't find a photo of my ones!). I actually brought them for my wedding but didn't end up wearing them as I was a bit naughty and brought a second pair. So I am glad I am getting some wear out of them.
I will go into Sheryl's theme for the wedding in a later post but the idea is Vintage Glamour – with a hint of Paris. The peplum choice of dress is a nod to a more shapely vintage look – think the look of the women of 'Madmen', and we will be accessorising with pearls to really add the glamour factor.
In terms of make-up we are going for Chanel in the 60s...the more I hear about this the more excited I am, like a kid in a candy store I tell you!
If you are looking for modern bridesmaid dresses, I would highly recommend going to the High Street. Just remember to keep an eye on the seasons and start looking early if you want particular colours. All of the high street faves have plenty of choice.
