6 Really Great Bridesmaid Gift Ideas for Your Leading Ladies

This week we bring you some really great bridesmaid gift ideas for the ones who have made this wedding planning experience even more special for you.

Bridesmaid Gift Ideas

So they’ve agreed to be your bridesmaids; against the odds and even after you have already told them that you plan to be a bridezilla and will milk this wedding planning time to your advantage and to no end.  They’re still up for it and you really want to reward them.  They have made the process beautiful and seamless; they have held you when you cried in sheer frustration because your mother-in-law has added yet another unknown cousin to the guest list.  They have shouted down the phone at wedding suppliers who refuse to reply your emails; even though they told you that they are never open at 12 midnight.  They have trawled round a 1000 bridal shops with you looking for the perfect wedding dress and oohed and aahed over every single dress you tried on.  Girl, please reward them and reward them well.  Here are some really great bridesmaid gift ideas that will make them forgive and forget your bridezilla moments and appreciate you even long after the wedding.

Bridesmaid Gift Ideas – Beautiful Sparkly Earrings

Amazing Wedding Photography: Supplier Spotlight on Litehouse Photography

Are you looking for wonderful wedding photography by an internationally renowned and recognised photographer, then look no further than the fabulous team at Litehouse Photography.

Amazing Wedding Photography

 

 

 

 

 

We worked with Kole who is the head photographer on a photo shoot recently and to say that we are impressed would be an understatement. There is one thing that I always look for in photographers and it’s not just creativity or the ability to create an absolutely stunning image which Kole has down pat but the ability to be patient.  For any type of wedding photography, if you have a photographer who does not listen to your ideas or try to understand your vision, then you have a big problem on your hands.  When I gave Kole the brief for the shoot, I was delighted by his understanding of what we were trying to achieve.  Even though he had his own style of working, he put aside what he would like and listened to what we wanted.  On the day itself, everyone on the team commented as to how patient Kole was throughout the whole thing. We were there for a whole day and not once did he complain or stress out. He was calm and took all the pictures that we required.  Here are a few sneak peeks from that photo shoot for our 2015 wedding dress collections

Amazing Wedding Photography in Milton Keynes, Estilo Moda Wedding Dresses and Bridesmaid Dresses, Red Bridesmaid Dress, Wedding Dress with V Neckline, Vintage Wedding Dress, Lace bridesmaid dressKole of Litehouse Photography describes himself as a story teller when he shoots; expressing his vision of the moment and how he sees it in a dramatic and striking way. He never attempts to picture a conclusive story because he loves to allow the viewers mind to tell their own story. His passion for wedding photography and all other types of photography was born out of the need for the shortage of that style of photography. He loves that through his wedding photography, he is preserving special moments in people’s lives. Kole works with couples all over the world and I view him as a jet-setting w edding photographer :).  Here are some images from wedding photography jobs he has had in the past

The National Wedding Show: Estilo Moda Bridal at Birmingham NEC

Estilo Moda Bridal was at The National Wedding Show which took place at Birmingham NEC from the 27th of February until the 1st of March 2015. It was our first time at Birmingham and 2nd time at the National wedding Show, the whole experience for us with the wedding industry big leaguers is still new and definitely a learning curve.The National Wedding Show Birmingham NEC - Estilo Moda Bridal

Estilo Moda Bridal at The National Wedding Show Birmingham NEC. Wedding Dresses and Bridedmaids Dresses Milton Keynes

A few weeks before the show, we posted pictures of dresses on Facebook asking our fans which dresses they would like us to take to the show and the response was overwhelming and oh so helpful. Thank you to everyone who helped us to choose the dresses that made it to the show. Your choices were just the right dresses for the show and the brides loved them.

The National Wedding Show - Estilo Moda Bridal Wedding Dresses and Bridesmaids Dresses

We spent many hours planning and putting things together from what our stand would look like to what dresses to take, to how the team would be dressed, which props to use to create a beautiful and welcoming scene for the brides-to-be. We were still positioned close to the Catwalk and VIP Lounge and we had our own exclusive changing room and so we knew we really had to create something amazing for the brides to see. We noticed that we were one of some of the most amazing and popular brands in the wedding industry who were positioned around the catwalk and VIP area and believe me we were honoured.

We set off on Thursday to set up our stand to reflect the welcoming ambience of our beautiful bridal studio in Milton Keynes, using such props as vintage stacked boxes, birdcages, bunting, hanging vintage pom-poms, and other quaint and quirky decorative items. We took our time to set up our signatory flowery wallpaper and we felt the stand looked amazing! Unfortunately, we forgot to take pictures as we wanted to take the pictures the next day when we had brought all the dresses and props to complete the look.

Day 1 of The National Wedding Show: We set out bright and early and got stuck in so much traffic that we thought we would never get there before the brides did. Thank God, the traffic cleared up in time and we got there that morning with a few minutes to spare. When we walked into the hall, we could see from a distance that there was something wrong with our stand. OMG!!! The wallpaper had fallen off. The same wallpaper that we had so painstakingly put up the day before and were so proud of. It reflected our brand perfectly with its flowers, birdcages and so on. We were heartbroken but in true EM fashion, we wiped the shock horror off our faces quickly and got on with it! Due to the wallpaper disaster, our walls were uncharacteristically black but lots of people said, they could see the dresses even more clearly and from a distance. We were also commended by the brides on our matching company blazers! Friday was busy but we knew it was nowhere near as busy as Saturday or Sunday would be but we still had lots of brides leave us with their details and we promised to get in touch with them.

Day 2 of The National Wedding Show: We were so ready for Saturday because we had been advised by a wedding photographer who had been to the National Wedding Show in Birmingham in previous years that there were 8000 brides registered for the Saturday show. The brides came in droves; very eager to find out about us and what we do. Many brides and bridesmaids tried on wedding dresses and bridesmaids dresses and we had chairs ready for Mums and Nans who happily commented on what worked and didn’t work on the dresses for their beloveds. It got to a point where it was so busy, we had to give out appointment slots for brides to come back and try on dresses. It didn’t stop until the end of the day and some brides found their dream dresses there and then and other brides booked appointments to come in and speak to us in our Bridal Studio in Milton Keynes. We spoke to the brides about the features of Estilo Moda Bridal’s Savvy Chic and Jade Bridal collections and they loved the idea of having the option to choose from either a luxury or budget collection to suit your taste and requirements.

Day 3 of The National Wedding Show: If anyone had told us that Sunday would be even busier than Saturday, we would have found it hard to believe but it was. Brides attended the National Wedding Show from all over the country and were delighted to hear that we are well accustomed to working with brides not only countrywide but also worldwide. In fact, some of these brides have already ordered their wedding dresses from us and it’s been only four days since the show. Some brides who had their wedding dresses sketched on the spot could not believe it and said how amazing the experience was for them. We had more brides book appointments to come in and see us right there and a whopping amount of names of brides as well as their contact details who wanted us to send them more information about us.

Throughout the three days, never did the smiles leave our faces, not even when we had to take turns to go for a 10 to 15 minutes lunch breaks on day 3 and not even when our feet felt like they were on fire from standing for such long hours. Many brides and their families commented on what a friendly bunch we were. Someone said it was refreshing. The best part was how much the brides who attended loved our dresses. We had comments like “the back of that dress is to die for”, “I can definitely see myself wearing that dress” and “eek, I think I’ve found my dress” and “what do we have to do to get this dress”.

5 Easy Mistakes That Can Cost You Your Dream Wedding Dress

Brides have said to us time and again that they feel like it’s such a minefield trying to find their perfect dream wedding dress. In fact, some of them have said they had to ditch perfect and resolve to go for the best they could find. Others had to settle for a wedding dress after searching for so long and then had to buy another wedding dress when they just could not be happy with what they had chosen.

Easy Mistakes that can cost you your dream wedding dress

We believe that finding the perfect wedding dress already created and waiting for you in a bridal shop may simply be impossible.  Most women know the dress designs they love because they have lived with their bodies all their lives and they know what suits them. Others who are more open to what is available out there feel let down because they never knew they would be so fussy and end up not liking any of the wedding dresses they have seen.

These are some of the reasons we have identified why brides are finding it so difficult to pick a wedding dress and be happy with it:

Easy Mistakes That Can Cost You Your Dream Wedding Dress NUMBER 1 

 Believing That Wedding Dresses on Models in Magazines and Bridal Websites Would Be  Perfect for You

Cleopatra Neckline pearl beaded chiffon sheath style very low back wedding dress perfect for destination wedding and beach wedding

Many brides go through loads of magazines and pictures on the internet before they venture into the bridal shops and more often than not, a bride will see a wedding dress on a model and decide that she wants that look for herself on her day.  The downside to this is that the dresses don’t always look on the bride as they would on the model.  We know from experience that models are photo-shopped in many of those pictures we see to within an inch of their lives.  The brides want this photo-shopped perfection that not even the models can take credit for. Therefore, we get a bride who comes into the shop to try on some dresses and is really shocked that some of the wedding dresses she was so sure would suit her actually don’t.  This leaves a bride feeling extremely frustrated and not really sure of what her dream dress is any more.  We always say to our brides that when they come in to see us, they should come armed with their pictures and ideas but we would prefer to see them try on some dresses and we can design a wedding dress for them that not only suits them but also incorporates some features of the dresses they love in a clever way and would make them look amazing.

Easy Mistakes That Can Cost You Your Dream Wedding Dress NUMBER 2

 Wanting to Try on a Wedding Dress  Way Over Your Budget Just to Satisfy Your Curiosity

This could be the absolute worst thing that you could ever do to yourself.  We always ask our brides what their comfortable budget is.  We believe that it is better to be honest with the bridal consultant and not state that your budget is much lower or much higher than you can afford.  A good bridal consultant should steer you away from wedding dresses that are way above your budget to save you the heart ache and pain of falling in love with a dress that you simply cannot afford.  We found that this had happened to a few brides who had come in to see us and what we did to help them was to choose elements of the dress that could either be created with less expensive fabrics and trims or we edited the design not to be so intricate so that it could be affordable for them.

Easy Mistakes That Can Cost You Your Dream Wedding Dress NUMBER 3

 Having Too Many Opinions at Your Bridal Consultations

1912031_723857647699133_5030964216926525554_n

It is really lovely to have your Mum, Sister, Bridesmaids, Mother-In-Law and everyone else who is able to make it at your first few bridal consultations. However, when it comes to time to make the hard and tough decision of which dress out of the hundreds you would like to pick or which wedding dress design you would like to be created for you specially, then it is better that you make this decision with only one or two people who know you best. Many brides have come to us either with too many people or with the wrong people and some of them have ended up changing their minds down the line regarding the style of their wedding dress.

Easy Mistakes That Can Cost You Your Dream Wedding Dress NUMBER 4

 Leaving Your Wedding Dress Shopping Too Late

We advise our brides that planning is key when it comes to putting together  a wedding day that you would look back on with joy.  This goes for choosing your wedding dress also.  It is really important that you start booking bridal appointments as soon as possible to get an idea of what suits you, what’s available.  For many bespoke designers, 18 to 24 months before the wedding is the typical time that we would love to start discussing your dress.  This is because the process before the production actually starts on the dress and the actual production as well as the many fittings you may need to fit the dress perfectly to your body may take longer than anticipated.  For us, each dress is created indicidually and uniquely and the entire process has to be repeated from design to drawing technical flats, to choosing fabric, to creating patterns etc for each and every dress and this takes time.

Easy Mistakes That Can Cost You Your Dream Wedding Dress NUMBER 5

 Trying on Too Many Dresses

Drop waist lace ball gown and sweetheart neckline wedding dress White Lace Tulle Skirt Illusion Neckline Wedding Dress Lace and tulle dipped base neckline, fit and flare wedding dress with beautiful duchess satin mermaid wedding dress shaped lining. Absolutely stunning.

Our recommendation for trying on wedding dresses before you decide on one dress or which dresses you would like to use for inspiration to design your wedding dress is seven to ten.

From our experience, brides who try on much more than ten get really confused and the decision becomes even harder.

When you find yourself in a position where you are unable to choose any one dress because it lacks something to make it perfect for you or you feel that you would like to combine features of different dresses to create one for you, then you may well be a candidate for a bespoke design wedding dress.

 

 

 


We hope you find this information useful when you head out to the bridal shops.

Have a fun filled wedding planning

The National Wedding show – Estilo Moda Bridal at Birmingham NEC

The National Wedding Show is the biggest wedding show in England and takes place in some of the biggest cities in the country.  Estilo Moda Bridal will be displaying some of our stunning designs from our Jadé Bridal and Savvy Chic Labels at The National Wedding Show at the Birmingham NEC at the end of February.

The National Wedding Show

 

In October last year, for the first time ever Estilo Moda exhibited at The National Wedding Show in London Earls Court. It was an exhilarating three days for us, we thoroughly enjoyed meeting loads of new Brides and hearing their likes and dislikes on the design of their Wedding Dress.

The Exhibition was a huge success for us we had a large of Brides who visited our Studio and ordered their dream dress from us. With the Brides that travelled to our Studio we asked what they liked about our stand and our services. The first thing they would say was how welcoming and down to earth we all were. Many of them commented on how we decorated our stand, it really stood out to them.

Here are a few photos of the stand:

With decorating the stand we tried to recreate the look and feel we have in the studio; Girlie and vintage. For The National Wedding Show in Birmingham, we are trying to think of ways to improve our look from the last show. One thing that will be different is our New collection Savvy Chic which will have their first outing. It will give us feedback on the new Collection; which will help us massively with the 2016 Collections.

We are hoping that we will be as busy as we were for the National Wedding Show at Earls Court London last September; with plenty of brides wanting to try on our dresses. We had to create appointment slots as the queues for trying on dresses were covering the whole stand.

The National Wedding Show

We are now wanting help from you all! Every week we will be posting pictures of two dresses and we want you to all pick which dress you think we should take to The National Wedding show. We are unable to bring all our dresses as the stand just isn’t big enough, and it is extremely difficult for us to choose as we have grown so attached to each and every dress.

Enjoy your Wedding planning and thank you for taking the time in reading this blog

7 Tips for Planning The Most Amazing Christmas Wedding

So it’s that time of the year again that we absolutely love!

I smell Christmas in the air everywhere I go and I am sure you do too.
I am so excited; everywhere looks beautiful, magical and there is so much love with Santa, Rudolph, trees, stockings, mistletoe, sprouts, shopping, exchanging gifts, putting up the decorations…
As excited as we are about Christmas and all its magic, we never stop thinking about our lovely brides and how we can make their wedding planning journey easier.

For all you lovely brides getting married during this most romantic season, we have put together some ideas on how to embrace the season beautifully. We bring you lovely Christmas Wedding Inspiration. The one worry with planning a Christmas Wedding is that what if there is no snow on the day. Won’t it be lovely to have a white Christmas Wedding? However, while there is no guarantee from dear Mother Nature on how the weather would be, you might just be lucky and she gives you lots of white, frothy, beautiful snow for your Christmas Wedding.

Here are some tips on how to create a themed Christmas wedding that would embrace the season in the most amazing fashion:

1) Choose a Venue That Does Justice to the Season

A magical season deserves a magical, beautiful, atmospheric and seasonal setting with rich sumptuous colours, roaring log fires and so on.

2) Choose Your Christmas Wedding Theme Carefully

Play with Twigs, Christmas Colours, Shimmering crystals, Floral, Berries, Snowflakes, play with naming your tables because you are spoilt with choice, Winter Wonderland theme is great, engage your guests by having Christmas Carols, add some finishing touches with Holly wreath decorations, get yourselves a brolly and wellies don’t worry about the weather, get out there and rock that umbrella for the best ever photos.

3) Set The Tone for Your Christmas Wedding With Your Invitations and Save The Date

Your invitations or ‘save the dates’ will be the first insight into your big day so they are important for setting the tone for your big day – Silver and white are popular around this time of year, along with rosy reds and greens. You don’t necessarily have to stick to a snowflake or Christmas theme during winter.

4) Consider a Wedding Dress That Keeps You Warm

You may want to look at wedding dresses with a higher neckline or sleeves and if you are having a 50’s style dress you can’t go wrong with pretty stockings or tights

5) Choose Your Make-up and Hairstyle Carefully

You may want to consider makeup and hairstyle that would be understated but fierce at the same time. The season is great for red lips and lovely cheek highlighting. You may have a natural glow from the cold weather any way and this just looks so beautiful in your pictures.

6) Choose a Lovely Festive Bouquet and Flower Arrangements

You can get creative with your bouquet and Christmas Wedding flower décor incorporating flowers that show off the colours of the season. You don’t want to pay premium price because the flowers you have chosen are out of season so research the flowers that are in season as well. Your guests would love to be gifted some of the flowers from the décor for the day and for your bouquet; depending on what you choose, you may be able to keep it for life.

Moodboard of the week – Royal Blue Wedding Inspiration

We love a royal blue wedding.  Even the name royal says it all.  Royal blue is this seriously cool, extremely elegant colour that has been very popular over the years and doesn’t seem to be going anywhere.  This week we looked at the electric and exciting colour Royal Blue! A truly mesmerising colour which is a also great wedding colour. Brilliant in any season royal blue, is bound to add a bit of wow to your big day.

Royal blue is a perfect colour for bridesmaids dresses as it makes the white or ivory of your wedding dress really stand out from the crowd. Adding things like ribbons, candles and accessories in this fab colour works really well creating some colour to your royal blue wedding but not too much as you wouldn’t want it to overpower anything else.

Royal blue works beautifully on it’s own and there may not be need to add any other colour to this already stunning one.

Did we say we love a Royal Blue Wedding!Here are some royal blue bridesmaid dresses we have in our Bridesmaid collection
