The Gown, The Suit and all in between

With the theme in mind you want to ensure you look the ultimate part, and why not bring your wedding party and wedding guests along the ride too.

Your gown will be the hero of the day! Think dainty lace details, intricate beading, long soft and sheer sleeves and ultra-low back (if you wish!) You don’t want anything to get in the way of those killer dance moves and something that will allow you to take a seat (possibly on a cushion on the floor) comfortably.

And if these details aren’t your thing ... you can leave it up to the shoes and other accessories to do the talking!

As for your bridesmaids – perhaps something a little more relaxed and miss-matched. Pick your colour palette and let the ladies pick something well suited to them!

Of course, we cannot forget about the groom and groomsman. Think texture!!!! Lin
