Wedding dress styles through the decades… The Change of a dress

When planning a wedding, everything from the venue to the guests can be extremely overwhelming. Not knowing where to begin can sometimes be the most daunting part. One of the most important things to consider, for most brides of course will be ‘the dress’.

We’ve seen some truly iconic wedding dresses throughout the years. From Grace Kelly’s sweetheart neckline and lace detailing of the 1950’s, to the modern day detailed embellishment – as seen on The Duchess of Cambridge. The dress you choose will reflect your style and personality, but most importantly should be something you feel completely comfortable in – especially if wearing all day. You should consider what design will best fit your shape, but don’t stifle your creativity right at the beginning of this process, make sure you hit your local bridal stores to play dress up and see what you fall in love with. Quite often, the dress you really think won’t work for you can be the perfect fit!

If you’re stuck for inspiration, Buyagift have created a great interactive guide on The Change of a Dress. It’s full of fun celebrity facts and trivia, exploring the different styles of dresses that have evolved throughout the years.

How to avoid the hen party from hell

Into the wood cover

 

How to avoid the hen do from hell!

Brand NEW thriller In A Dark Dark Wood by Ruth Ware tells the story of a hen do, which uncovers some secrets best kept hidden…

Leonora hasn’t seen Clare for ten years. Not since Nora walked out of school one day and never went back. Until, out of the blue, an invitation to Clare’s hen do arrives. Is this a chance for Nora to finally put her past behind her? As the champagne corks pop, the secrets begin to flow, and a hen do for an old school friend begins to take a sinister turn…

In A Dark Dark Wood is available to own now in hardback, and to celebrate here on the wedding fairy blog, we’re giving you some top tips on how to avoid a real-life hen do from hell!

1) Don’t hold a hen do at your home, unless you know all attendees well

The drinks are flowing, people are dancing, and the next thing you know, your family heirloom crystal swan given to you by Auntie Muriel has been smashed. Unless you can hide all valuables, or know and trust the hens implicitly, it’s probably best to hold the party elsewhere

2) Strippers, penis straws and Ann Summers parties are not for everyone

When the bride said no strippers or S&M gear, was she joking, or did she mean it? Not everyone is into debauchery and ‘last night as a single gal’ for their hen do, so take time to get hints from the bride and her friends as to what she’d really like to do. Then you can create a memorable event for the right reasons!

3) If you are going abroad, be mindful of budgets

It’s unlikely all attendees will earn the same or have similar amounts of disposable cash; we all have busy (and expensive) lives after all!  If you plan to go abroad, examine different options in different price brackets, and keep all attendees in the loop. Don’t be upset if you have drop-outs, its better they tell you now rather than not being able to afford dinner in Amsterdam!

4) Be wary of inviting relatives

Unless you are really close to the mother-in-law or other female relatives of the bride and groom, think twice about inviting them! They may not enjoy your booze soaked Chippendale fest and you don’t want the bride to be upset if they want to leave. Perhaps organise an afternoon tea or special brunch earlier in the day or the day after that they can attend.

5) Last but not least, Hen parties are NOT a competition to see who is closest to the bride

If you are the maid of honour, do listen to the other bridesmaids and hen’s opinions and suggestions for what to do for the party, to ensure everyone is well briefed and wants to take part in your chosen activities!

Skincare tips before the wedding

Holistic-Essentials

Skincare tips before the wedding… a review of Ayurveda Pura London

I can clearly remember turning 30 and my friend Catrina telling me to ‘step away’ from the shelves whilst browsing the aisles of  a well known high street store! Its counters all the way from this point in she proclaimed. Shelves are dead to me – long live the counter I yelled in a sort of liberated slash defeated type way! To be fair, I could never ditch the shelves even if I wanted too, this is where all the hidden treasure lie, but apparently preservation is the name of the game from this point in and the only place any of us stand a chance of achieving this is at the counter of luxury. By this of course she was referring to the super-beauty brands that dominate our high street department store entrances. A shop within a shop tempting us with their bottled delights of anti-wrinkle bliss. And I must confess, I am a bit of an addict. Always at the front of the queue to try ‘the next big thing’ in ‘skin preservation’ as I now like to call it!

So you can imagine my delight when this little box of tricks landed on my doorstep for me to test out (see below). I had been on the lookout to try a completely new range of product and was keen to test an organic collection as this was an area I had not delved into before. Would going natural be better for me and more importantly better for my skin?! Not meaning to sound superficial here, but if we’re focusing on the skin deep I think we can allow ourselves to be a little vain! In keeping with this theme and like a hound hunting out it’s prey, my first port of call was to sniff out the scent of said product and I have to say, this floral burst of deliciousness certainly did not disappoint. Heaven springs to mind. I am a massive fan of a decent scent, if not mildly addicted and Ayurveda Pura ticked every box for me on that count. I am hooked already!

Skincare tips before the wedding

Ayurveda is an Ancient Indian Holistic medical system that has been practiced for over 5000 years, the principles of which are at the heart of the entire collection. 100% natural, the Ayurveda Pura range is totally organic, suitable for vegans, SLS-free, perfume-free, parabens-free and free of animal testing. They are lovingly hand made in the UK and suitable for all skin types. When I said I wanted to go completely natural I really meant it hey! I’ll be hitting the nudist beach next :-) … maybe not just yet!!

Shampoo Ayurveda Pura

So first up, I kicked off with a test of the shampoo and for me this is an important product. As us guys get a little older, our hair tends to dry out and loose its lust for life, so finding a shampoo that would bring a bit of vitality to my follicles turned into a never ending quest. But luckily, this particular product delivered with gusto on the latter and more importantly, felt as though it was doing some good by stripping all the evil chemicals from my head when I used it for the first time. This apparently is down to anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and blood cleansing exotic ingredients including Neem and Brahmi. I was at one with nature if you know what I mean. Lot’s of lovely goodness being rubbed into my head instead of a chemical mix that’s faking it.

organic face cleansing milk

Next up was the daily cleansing milk, which again felt fresh and full of cleansing gorgeousness as I used it, but for me the most notable point was after drying my face. Probably for the first time ever, it felt REALLY clean. Stripped of clogging oils that might have been lingering for some time, the essential Oils of Neroli, Lemon and Frankincense left my skin feeling revitalised, toned and wonderfully scented. Castor oil also helps fight wrinkles and fine lines. I use this cleansing milk everyday now and intend to continue with it when I run out! Happy days.

Decent under eye cream

Moving on to that all important under eye area… I cannot be the only one who has tried a million creams that all promise to anti-puff but never deliver? It’s always so disappointing when you apply and nothing really happens – in some instances the circles get even darker. Never a good look. I know this is always a massive area of concern for brides-to-be when it comes to beauty prep for the big day and as someone who also looks like they have aged 50 years and gone five rounds with Mike Tyson upon waking every morning – I feel your pain. The tired look is never going to be in, so thank goodness for this little tube of kindness, which is enriched with witch hazel and a blend of essential oils including: Mandarin, Borage, Ylang Ylang and Geranium. This unique formula both cools and calms the skin, whilst helping to protect, nourish and repair thanks to it’s antioxidant properties.  It doesn’t just cover-up it fixes too… this ones a keeper ladies!

Cream

And finally, containing a unique blend of aloe vera, almond, peach and essential oils of rose, neroli and orange to moisturise and replenish the skin, this as they say is my icing on the cake! The consistency is gorgeous too – I cannot bear a greasy cream! And for anyone that suffers with skin irritations or light acne, the Manjistha ingredient in this product also helps to cleanse the blood at skin level to reduce rashes and blemishes. Don’t forget to apply onto your lips too as the almond oil also helps with chapped lips and is anti-ageing. This is my go-to product at the end of a busy day. A little pot of gold waiting for me at my bedside…

And here I am about to apply said Ayurveda Pura cream post shampoo ‘n’ face wash! #gorgeousinaleopard !!

Pre Wedding Celebrations!

Outside The View from the Shard London

Preparing for ascent!
The Wedding Fairy enjoys a pre wedding celebration…

Planning a wedding (minus a wedding fairy!) can be a little daunting and stressful at times – even for the most organised of couples – primarily because it’s designed to be a once in a lifetime experience and as such, one is simply learning on the job as they say! And this is exactly why I always advise couples to book in some fun times pre wedding as a way of escaping the ‘W’ word, whilst also enjoying a bit of ‘you’ time together. Talk of floral centre-pieces, table seating plans and even the first dance is strictly prohibited! This is a chance to relax, unwind and enjoy each others company… so, earlier this month, I decided to road test one such adventure courtesy of buyagift.co.uk by climbing The Shard and enjoying a sumptuous meal at Del Mercato in London with my pal Sinead.

 View from the shard selfieObligatory View from the Shard Selfie moment!

Amusingly, both myself and Sinead are not the best with heights, so minus a glass of prosecco in hands, this was always going to prove a challenge… luckily, the bar was our first discovery on arrival :-)

Bar at the view from the Shard

Nerves in check, we decided to grab the bull by the horns as they say and face our fears! And I have to say, Western Europe’s tallest building did not disappoint, with views stretching over 40 miles of arguably, the greatest view in the World – London.

View from the shard

After conquering our fears, we decided to adventure to the top level platform and although a little dizzy on our feet, we were both blown away by the spectacular views and how small everything down below looked. Check out London Bridge – tiny! It was like watching a toy train set whizz around below your feet as trains departed Waterloo station, whilst the planes above were so close you felt like you could touch them. Simply incredible.

London Bridge from the Shard

And here I am ‘striking a pose’… with some lovely views thrown in too!

Next up, we took a short walk over to the very lovely Borough Market to enjoy a #sensational dinner at the Michelin Starred restaurant Del Mercato. The bubbles flowed and the food, well, it really was a menu to remember as Greg Wallace or John Torode might say!  Let me tempt you with our delicious asparagus and carpaccio based starters that were to die for…

Del Mercato Borough
And the main wasn’t half bad too! Who am I kidding, it was heaven and something a little different… beautifully cooked monk fish on one side, with a delish chicken mozzarella treat on the other. But for me, the proof is always in the pudding :-)

Puddings at Del Mercato
An evening I certainly will not forget in a hurry, in fact wedding or no wedding, we should all take time out to indulge in something a little special every now and then and for me, this one ticked all the right boxes!

Hen party detail

HENS

Me and the gang recently rocked an 80’s Butlins music weekend for a very special hen and beyond our spectacular outfits that paid homage to the era itself, I wanted to ensure we were armed with a suitable box of hen themed regalia to integrate at various junctions throughout our adventure. And as you can see, things kicked off in spectacular fashion the moment we boarded the train! Talk about setting the hen-scene and getting everyone in the mood for mischief… of course, some things in life are a classic for a reason and I include the obligatory ‘L plates’ in that category, but beyond this, there is now an incredible mix of hen-themed accessories available to help you get the hen party started…. phwaaaar – give us a kiss!

BUTLINS_C

As I always say, the real drama is always in the detail and in this instance, I am talking about a real show stopper. To be fair, it’s pretty tricky to beat the random sailor in the background of this shot when it comes to stealing a scene, but hey, every bride-to-be needs a tiara to shine bright like a diamond for their big celebration and this beauty flashes ‘n’ everything. Step back Princess whoever, there is a new Cinderella on the block!

Anyway, enough with all this tempting! Where did I grab such wonderful hen-themed goodies I hear you cry! Well, my lovely friends over at PartyPieces sent me a box full of delights for us to test out and even though I was pretty confident such accessories would be a roaring success, I could not have predicted the outcome… everything got us talking – especially the do-it -yourself hen party booth kit!

Wowed at Tylney Hall

Tylney Hall

Tylney Hall

 

My 24 hours in wedding venue heaven…

When I say I was wowed by Tylney Hall – trust me I am not joking. I was wowed. Totally and utterly. And the magic truly kicks off the moment you arrive, I mean the first visual of the venue front is literally breath taking, but for me, the private car parking space on arrival was quite a touch. That’s special and that’s detail people. Memorable moments make a wedding and Tylney Hall is riddled in them…

 

Tylney Hall Exterior


Welcome to Tylney

The Hall dates back to the 1700’s when it was built for the Tylney family and has quite a rich and varied history behind it. During the first world war, the venue acted as a hospital housing wounded soldiers and in 1948 became a school – until it closed in 1984 – when it was transformed into the divinely luxurious hotel it is today. The venue now boasts a whole host of deluxe facilities including: a gorgeous mix of individually designed suites, an Award winning dining room, a sensational spa with both indoor and outdoor pools, plus the most impressive grounds I have ever seen at a wedding venue.

Tylney Exterior


The Wedding Fairy has landed…

It’s the little touches that take Tylney from great to spectacular. The staff were all so attentive and welcoming on arrival, you really felt there was a genuine passion to make you feel like you were somewhere special. And this superior level of service continued throughout the duration of our visit. The room itself was a real delight and very spacious, with a lovely lounge and dining space combined – quite a treat. Again, the beautiful bowl of fruit and delicious selection of truffles over coffee added perfectly to what was quite a welcome. Once settled in, I decided to pop on those boots that were made for walking to explore the grounds. We could have walked all afternoon to be honest. The lake is a particularly gorgeous spot to sit and relax, but after a couple of hours, I decided to head back to slip into a suit and get ready for pre-dinner cocktails… I am pretty excited at this point, but had no idea about what was to follow!

TYL Italian Lounge gold_low

Quite clearly the only way to kick off such a spectacular evening is with a glorious glass of bubbles darling. We popped into the utterly divine Italian lounge, sank into a chaise longue – Barbara Cartland style – and soaked up the magic as it unfolded. Actually it was more Downton than Barbara. There is something quite wonderful about dressing for dinner and at Tylney Hall, all those indulgences are catered for and then some. In fact at times, it felt like I was starring in an Agatha Christie Miss Marple mystery and I loved every second of it. After taking an hour to relax and enjoy the surroundings, we were invited through to have dinner in the award winning Oak Room Restaurant and again, this was an experience I certainly won’t be forgetting in a hurry…

The Oak Room

Yes dining at Tylney is something everyone should have the opportunity to experience at least once in their lifetime. Candle-lit and utterly gorgeous, we were seated next to the grand piano and immediately felt at home as one show stopper of a tune was being played after another. I had to stop myself from belting out a number. Not so sure the other diners would have appreciated my vocals… once again, the drama really is in the detail here – and I am not talking about my singing skills! The service is second to none and presented with such style and grace – I loved the classic cloche presentation of our main courses! You gotta love a little bit of silver dome action at the table – oh and prob the best steak I have ever tasted in my life to boot. And don’t get me started on the soup – I need a tureen in my life like now! The highlight however, was my creme brûleé finale – best I have ever tasted. Period.

After dinner we resided to the library – as one does – and enjoyed a port night cap, before heading back to the boudoir so we could plan breakfast, which by the way. was served at exactly 8.45 am as requested. A perfect start to the day…

20141012_084811_resized

I guess this is what makes Tylney so unique. You get to live like a King for the day without all the formalities. The only annoying bit is having to leave!

Weddings at Tylney Hall


WEDDINGS AT TYLNEY HALL

Whether you are looking for an intimate space to celebrate with a close few, or a venue that offers a little something larger in scale – Tylney has thought of it all. With access to private gardens and the option for exclusive hire, Tylney can cater for up to 120 seated guests and offers a mix of packages to suit all styles and budgets. The venue is also licensed to host wedding ceremonies on-site, allowing you to nestle into this gorgeous country retreat for the whole day and night – without the worry of transporting your guests from one location too another.

Dealing with nerves on your wedding day

Ailsa-Frank-300px

Banish the nerves and feel amazing on your wedding day!

Here at the wedding fairy blog we are often asked how best to cope with nerves on the big day, so we asked leading hypnotherapist Ailsa Frank to drop by and give us her expert opinion…

Brides or Grooms can build up their wedding day in their mind for literally years, some dream of a fairy tale whilst others worry about a nightmare, suffer anxiety over the speech or worry about being centre stage. When the wedding day gets closer and reality sinks in for some people it can trigger uncomfortable feelings or last minute nerves.

“The work I do is about getting into the AMAZING zone by rising above the negative thinking and the drama. By changing the conversation in your mind you will program yourself to create a positive result. I have helped many clients let go of wedding nerves using hypnotherapy techniques to relax them, let go of anxieties, get them to be more organised, more confident so they can be comfortable within themselves and feel great about their wedding day. A common problem is to worry about being the centre of attention. It can be almost a phobia for some. “How many weddings have you been to where the bride or groom didn’t look fabulous?” I ask them and the answer they always reply to me is “none”. Exactly, I remind them that all Brides and Grooms look fabulous on their wedding day. I also remind them of how enjoyable it is to be at a wedding as a guest, so they can let go of the guilt of dragging their guests to their wedding, as many people feel embarrassed about expecting friends and family to take time out of their schedule for them. People generally love weddings so I teach clients to embrace the enjoyment they will bring to all their guests. It is important to visualise everything going well and the people including yourself having a great time. It is also a good idea to release any bad feelings. Some self doubting can come from previous life experiences, perhaps you didn’t like to perform in a school play? So being centre stage reminds you of those bad feelings or perhaps you were brought up being told ‘not to show off’ so it makes you feel uncomfortable about being a Bride or Groom. I remind people to remember that they are an adult now with a whole new set of skills to the ones they had as a child and remember all the times they achieved things in their life so far. ‘You can and will be fabulous on your wedding day’. If you have any worry feelings imagine them like clouds in the sky and let them pass by to release them from your mind.”

Tips for dealing with nerves on your wedding day

• Visualise the day after the wedding with everything having gone AMAZINGLY well.

• Self talk yourself into the positive “I can do this, I am doing this, it is done, it is all fine, everything has worked out AMAZINGLY well.”

• Visualise someone you admire who looks great and has confidence, imagine stepping into the body of that person, feel how it feels, then take that feeling into your own body and feel good about yourself too.

• Think about all the things you like about other weddings you have been to, then press your thumb and first finger together on your right hand as you feel the good feelings. Keep adding good feelings and then use the thumb and finger press on the day.

• Smile – as you think about yourself looking good and enjoying being centre stage, when you smile you create positive endorphins which help you feel relaxed and happy.

• Visualise the guests smaller in your mind, perhaps as cartoon characters, so everyone feels more comfortable. You can practise this before the wedding and remember to do it on the day if you feel over whelmed at any point.

• Listen to my ‘Build Confidence and Self Esteem’ hypnotherapy recording to reprogram your subconscious mind with positive beliefs about yourself. The recordings allow you to let go of any anxieties or low self esteem issues and replace them with comfortable feelings and a strong self belief. The recordings are a great boost for a confident speech to.

• My book Cut the Crap and Feel AMAZING teaches you how to rise above the negative, release worries and get into the AMAZING zone to create an AMAZING life, which is perfect for getting a marriage off to a positive start.

‘Build Confidence and Self Esteem’ hypnosis CD is available to download priced at £14.99 and the NEW Hardcover book ‘Cut the Crap and Feel AMAZING’ is also out now from all good bookstores £14.99

Pre-wedding non-surgical treatments

Beautify before the big day

The best bit about being a bride, is the opportunity to indulge and pamper oneself a little. If you cannot enjoy a little luxury for your big day, well when can you? This is your moment, so embrace it lady. As I always say, (fingers crossed) it’s only ever going to happen once in your life, so why not go to town on it! And if the budget is a little stretched, make sure you pop a little poppy away each week during the planning process, so you have a beauty fund to play with a few weeks before the wedding itself. Obviously that isn’t so helpful if the wedding is in a month’s time and you are flat broke. If that’s the case beg, borrow, or steel, to treat yourself before the celebrations kick off…

And beyond the usual facial, manicure & full body massage, we were curious here at The Wedding Fairy blog about possibly taking things one step further. Some might say to extremes, others a beauty fix investment for life not just the big day… here we grab a quick chat with Dr Tracey Mountford – highly regarded as a key opinion leader in the ever-expanding field of non-surgical aesthetic medicine and founding member of the British Association of Cosmetic Doctors – to tell us all about the latest trends and hottest treatments currently available in the World of Pre-wedding non-surgical treatments…

DR_MOUNTFORD

Welcome to The Wedding Fairy Blog Dr Tracey!

- Every Bride-to-be wants to look their absolute best on the big day, what treatments would you recommend to someone considering cosmetic work such as injectables or non-invasive treatments for the first time?

For young Brides with good skin I would recommend the Clear+Brilliant treatment combined with IPL Skin rejuvenation. Possibly some medical injectables too, but it’s always best to discuss and assess this on an individual basis. For Brides in their 30’s/40’s medical fillers – subtly done – are always the best option. 

- What are the most popular treatments for brides-to-be?

Non-invasive treatments to create a dewy look for the wedding, plus cheek improvements to beautify and add definition to the face. 

- What timescale would you advise for brides-to-be considering injectables or non-invasive treatments for the big day?

All treatments should be performed at least 6-8 weeks prior to the big day to allow time for settling down and review.

- If the budget wasn’t a problem, how does a bride-to-be achieve the ultimate A-list look?

Dependent on age and skin type:
Gentle medical treatments  to allow movement, but to ‘airbrush’ the upper face & crow’s feet to give a mid-face lift and enhance beauty. Subtle fillers to lift cheeks and support the face. Lip treatments to subtly enhance or replace lost volume – looks fabulous on the photographs. Radio frequency skin tightening treatments or Ultherapy ultra sound treatment(to firm and contour the face naturally). Cool-sculpting for love handles, abdomen and back fat to look super svelte in the wedding gown and to re-contour the silhouette.

All the above treatments would also be relevant for ‘Mothers of the Bride’ & ‘Mother in law of the Bride’.

For more details and further information on all the specific treatments discussed here by Dr Tracey, please visit Juvederm. You can also find the ‘clinic locator’ function on the Juvederm website to help find the practitioner for you.
