My Big Fat Frilly Wedding

Apologies for being absent over the past few weeks, I was planning on blogging loads since we have officially broken up for summer, but alas I finally got a job!!!!!
I am actually working in what is voted as the best bridal salon in Scotland - the prestigious VOWS awards don't cha know - and although its impossibly busy, I am enjoying it immensely, even getting to do a little hands on sewing which surely will make up for the "fashion, fashion, fashion" we've to be all about this summer???
I have decided to give the blog an overhaul as well, it was getting a little boring after all. I will now be concentrating on all this frilly in fashion and otherwise, and bringing these divine treats to whoever of you out there may be reading. Letting my frilly flag fly clearly. But that's not all!!! Oh no, I will still report on my Uni work - the delights that that may bring - and any other fashion info which I deem superior enough to be on la blog.
So in homage to my new job and the upcoming nuptials of Kazza and Wills, here's how to do frills wedding style.....
First of all Coleen Rooney's Marchesa dress was amazing, the way the fabric moved it looked like she was floating....well thats what I would imagine if I'd been there.....unfortunately her husband didn't float off out the picture, shame really.
Although not traditionally white, the pink adds a little something, something....prom dress maybe?
Vera Wang's Fern dress shows off the right amount of exaggerated ruffles
She does it again with the Eleanor dress, in Stanley's words, "Thats what I want, only BIGGER!"
And of course Carrie's Vivienne Westwood gets a mention, those ruffles are enough all on their own!
And then we move onto how not to get married....with luminous pink bridesmaids maybe?? Although their tans do blend in well with the dresses.
Remember this one, moving fibre-optic butterflies?? thanks.
And finally Princess Diana, yes she's an amazing icon, style and humanities wise....but my goodness what a dress.....ruffles gone drastically wrong, and she had it in silk, hence the major creases!! A lesson I well learned whilst steaming.
So this in turn begs the question.....what will Kate wear? Will she opt for traditional bride like Diana or perhaps something sleek? But the more important question is who will be making it? Obviously it has to be a British designer; I'd love to see a Christopher Kane dress or Sarah Burton from McQueen but if she did one I think it would be a diluted down version of McQueen and not the theatricality that I so desire, however I am also suspecting Westwood.... time will tell though!
