House of Mooshki 2017 Wedding Dresses

House of Mooshki’s approach to bridal design is what sets them apart from other bridal houses. And what they do best — whimsical and romantic gowns in classic, vintage inspired cuts —  is a godsend to brides looking for a Wedding Dress that’s timeless yet unlike any other traditional Wedding Dresses in the market. The 2017 collection features layers upon layers of tulle, soft pastel colors and a contrast of soft and heavy laces.

“Stepping away from the trends and believing strongly in timeless elegance and classics silhouettes of the 50’s and 60’s, 2017 sees Mooshki doing what we do best. Along side our cutie pie tea length gowns and defining pencil dresses with detachable trains we are making a big feature of our sumptuous 1950’s ball gowns. Big bold statement pieces that will most certainly give the WOW factor. Accessorizing our gowns with either a simple thin belt and bow or going full on rebel with our new satin buckle belts there really is something for every bride, from classic and romantic to rebellious and fun.”

Ines di Santo Bridal Collection Fall 2017 – The Ethereal Bride

01 Apr 2017 Posted by trubridal in Wedding Dresses

The mother-daughter team of Ines Di Santo designs Wedding Dresses for every type of bride. “I travel around the world meeting brides and what they dream of is so varied,” Ines said. “People can expect to see a collection emerged from my respect for the spirit and style of today’s lovely brides.” Her daughter, Veronica, grew up in the atelier and inherited the same passion as her mother. She mixes her mother’s classic look with unexpected twists, like pastels, which you can find in this collection of Wedding Dresses.

“For this collection I was inspired by exquisite Parisian confections,” Di Santo said. You’ll find white and ivory mixed with a soft and sweet color palette of pastel pinks, purples and blues (even the models’ nails were painted these colors!). Full tulle skirts that as airy as cotton candy. The delicate textured embroidery found on the bodices is like the perfect topping found on the most delicious French dessert. What we’re really loving is the use of power blue in the collection: it’s different yet elegant for the bride who wants to combine unusual and traditional for her gown. Take a look at Ines Di Santo’s Fall 2017 bridal collection—it really is a treat.

“Valerie” Sleeveless soft tulle ball gown with scooped neckline, sheer illusion bodice and hand painted overlay embellished with beading.

12 Wonderful Wedding Heirlooms to Pass onto the Next Generation

26 Mar 2017 Posted by trubridal in Wedding Ideas

One of the most wonderful things you can do post-wedding is protect or pass on precious items to the bride and groom. Many of us don’t get to re-live the magic of generations before us with heirloom gowns, suits, tiaras, rings and garters and instead have to make do with all those pretty memories captured in old photographs.

When I was due to be married, I had hoped to include something special from my own family – a bauble, an accessory, a trinket. Alas, it wasn’t meant to be…so I started my own collection.

After I wed my beloved husband, I made sure I put aside my Wedding Dress, wedding veil and bridal jewellery for my daughters to wear on their own special day. So often we forget to save meaningful things to pass on to our next of kin, which I think is a great shame.

Below you’ll find some brilliant ideas to kick-start the heirloom process yourself. Like the saying goes: “Something borrowed, something new” – a winning wedding day combination!

1. Bridal Veil 

Bridal veils are timeless and have barely changed throughout the eras. A good example is the retro birdcage veil which is still popular today. Cathedral and mantilla veils are classic accessories that can be passed down through the generations. Just remember to wrap up all that delicate tulle and store away carefully!

2. Bridal headpieces

Stash that bridal headpiece away for your daughters, cousins or nieces. Better still, match a La Belle hair accessory like the Mae Chignon Hair Wrap or the Chloe Golden Bridal Comb with your grandmother’ precious antique brooch or earrings.

3. Ring 

From gifting engagement rings to bequeathing wedding bands, passing down jewellery is an emotional moment for all involved. Brides and grooms love to cherish special rings from passed-over loved ones, so make sure you keep yours clean and polished.

4. Jewellery 

If you aren’t lucky enough to own a ring from a long gone grandmother or grandfather, a vintage piece of gorgeous jewellery will always suffice! Think pearl necklaces, elegant chains, tie pins, and slender bracelets.

5. Silk Handkerchief 

A delightful keepsake for your son, cousin or nephew, a silk handkerchief doubles as a pocketsquare and can easily be slipped into a suit jacket. Alternatively, gift to a favourite Bridesmaid to slip into a handbag.

6. Wedding Ribbon 

Easy to store before passing down to younger generations, a wedding ribbon can be utilised in a number of ways including securing in the hair or tying around a wedding bouquet.

7. Wedding Gown

Don’t underestimate the power of a vintage Wedding Dress! Not only will you save your daughter, cousin or niece a ton of hard earned dollars, they may absolutely love its cut, fit and colour! A retro dress allows a bride to carry on family tradition. What’s more, plenty of older gowns boast a beautiful bohemian vibe and incredible fabrics from yesteryear.

8. Ring Bearer Cushion 

A lovely little hand-me-down for a child ring bearer at the altar. Wrap in plastic and store away for your next family wedding. Alternatively, a cherished family Bible also makes an ideal presentation platform. Leather-bound or gold-leaf trimmed – the older the book, the better!

9. Champagne Flutes

Rarely going out of style, the classic champagne flute is an heirloom for everybody. Bestowed to both men and women, it’s the unisex gift that keeps on giving!

10. Garter

Intimate, sentimental and ever so pretty, the traditional bridal garter is a perfect present for a special woman in the family. If your dress is not required, this timeless accessory surely will be. Brides simply love slipping on this good luck charm, which will then be tossed to the unwed male guests!

11. Wedding Favour 

Passing on a secret recipe for delicate little wedding favours is a must for any bride and groom. Maybe you’re hiding a secret love heart cookie formula or better still – chocolate mousse! I bet your grandmother holds a treasure chest of tried and tested recipes. There may even be one for a wedding cake amongst the mix – ring her and ask her!

12. Wedding Vow

Book Carry on a time-old tradition by gifting romantic inscriptions in a wedding vow book. Generations can pen vows and musings on the pages as a continual living document!
