Advice on Wedding Dresses and Bridal Fashion

Saturday, September 6th, 2008

Author: Aus Mark

It is said that a woman has three significant moments in her life: The day she was born, the day she gives birth, and her wedding day. With the first and second moments, sense of fashion and style is irrelevant. But with the third, looking and feeling your best is crucial! Unfortunately for most brides-to-be, the days leading up to the wedding can turn out to be some of the most stressful, and the end-result is far from perfect. However, it need not be so.    The most important aspect of the wedding is the bridal wear – the gown for the bride, dresses for the bridesmaid and mothers of the bride and groom, and the suits for the groom and bestmen. The number of fashion options available for wedding and bridal couture is endless, and the task of choosing the right styles can be daunting.    While off-the-shelf wedding dresses are often easy to find and purchase, the fit is rarely perfect. Therefore, the best advice for a bride-to-be is to have a dress tailor-made. Standard wedding dress materials include silk, chiffons, georgettes and laces (for accessories).    To look good is to feel good, and so the right match of material and style is important. d’Italia, a designer fabric store in Malvern, strongly recommends a visit to some top-end bridal boutiques to try on different styles before visiting the fabric store, for the following reasons:    •    to be sure that the style you had in mind does in fact suit your body shape  •    in case you might see some other styles you had not considered, which you should try on in case you end up liking them better  •    to compare the feel of different types of fabrics, such as soft, flowing crepe satins or stiffer, firmer dupion or duchess satins  •    to literally move - and we mean MOVE!- around in the styles to be sure you will be comfortable sitting, dancing, getting in and out of cars, etc…this is most important  •    to experience what it is like to wear different lengths of trains, as you may decide afterwards that you would prefer not to have one at all  •    to see what different shades of traditional bridal colours actually look like on your skin - such as white, silk white, ivory, champagne, oyster, etc.    d’Italia has in store the finest in bridal couture quality. It also has optional referral services to some of Australia’s best wedding couture seamstresses. Additionally, recommendations of best fit and styles are available in-store. For those stressed-out brides-to-be, visiting such a store is the best option available to obtain the perfect wedding dress.    d’Italia’s cloth comes directly from the same European manufacturers who supply to haute couture labels like Gucci, Armani and Escada. The available fabrics in-store are also perfect for the tailored creations for bridesmaids and mother-of-the-bride dresses. Referrals to seamstresses who specialise in evening wear and dinner gowns are also an available option.

Birthday Cake My dearest hubby


Tomorrow is my hubby’s second birthday! :o What??? Second birthday? And that too of hubby??? Can’t believe? Oops, I meant second birthday after my marriage. :D

I have a sweet and small family of five - I, my hubby, my parent in laws and a sweet sister in law. We plan and celebrate each occasion together. My parents join us too.

Last year we had made his birthday full of surprises. The whole day we gave him lots of surprise gifts; starting from the 12am (early morning) by decorating our bedroom, cake cutting and lots of gifts, then in the morning (gift near his pillow) and visit to temple (gift in the car), lunch (gift in the plate) till the organization of surprise outing, dinner and lunch. Was a fun filled day for him (and us as well) J

Tomorrow is his birthday and I am confused as how to make his birthday grand. Actually was thinking since long and also have though of gifts. Infect have already bought them. Now you are getting confuse too as to then what’s so confusing for me? Well, am not confused for gifts but the celebration ideas. Actually, I love surprise, both to give and to take :D . So my confusion is how to make his birthday interesting, fun filled, unique and memorable this time.

For this I searched on lots of sites, but couldn’t find any new idea. Now only a day left… Think Shreya. Think, think and think. Exercise your brain. And yes! It clicked in my mind while was in my research center. Research center? (my bathroom :D , where my mind is most productive and innovative. Lol).

Ok, ok, I know you all are eager to know the plan. So here you are.

  • 12am tonight (infect early morning of 1st August) – Decorating room with ribbons and balloons. We will darken the room and lighten the candles on the surprise cake (yummy strawberry cake which is his favorite).
  • Will write birthday wish on the white paper with the lemon juice. So the paper will look blank and the wish will be invisible. Will put the paper above the lightened candles on the cake before he blow off them. And the magical wish will appear! How’s it?
  • Then we are gonna gift him a new iphone. Which I think will be the best gift. And hope this will make him happy.
  • In the morning, I’ll make his favorite breakfast.
  • Think, I haven’t written him a love letter since long (it’s a love marriage friends). How about writing him a love letter (and not a love e-letter/email J) ! I think it’s the best way to express my love and feeling towards him and also recall our old days as boyfriend/girlfriend.
  • Will hide different colored douche roses at different places in home. Will be waiting for the moment to see his dimples after finding those roses! J
  • Have prepared a Crossword of digits, consisting of birthday and anniversary dates of family members, car and bike numbers etc. If he will fill it correctly, we will present him a surprise gift (formal shirt). Just to add fun with the surprise gift.
  • Will go out for Dinner with family and friends, may be at PizzaHut.

Hope these will make his birthday grand. Finally an idea of showering him with tons of birthday wishes clicked my mind. And I was confused till moment that how to make this possible? Nothing clicked me even after giving it a deep thought.

And suddenly while writing this post, I realized it is not possible without the help of my dear social networker friends. Only they can help me make my plan successful. Friends, will you help me out making my plan (of thousands of birthday wishes to my dearest hubby) successful???

A humble request to all my friends - please help me out, and wish him here. This will be the best gift for him I suppose. I’ll send him the link to this blog tomorrow evening so he can go through the tons of wishes for him.

Am sure you friends, you won’t disappoint me. Thanks in advance for your kind support.

Note :  It is the fact and not done in any way just to drive traffic to the site. It is my personal request and not a professional attempt.

Know your ‘type’ of wedding gowns

Monday, June 30th, 2008
by Ann

The first thing you should do when shopping for your wedding dress is decide which style of gown you prefer. Some styles are better suited for particular body types.

Whether you are short, tall, thin or curvy, you will be a beautiful bride.

Here are the five basic styles of wedding gowns.

A-Line (Princess)

A-line dresses are fitted around the bodice and flow outward to the ground, resemblingA-Line the shape of an uppercase A.

There is no marked waist or other cuts in the structure of the gown. A-line gowns can be short (above the knee) or flow all the way to the ground and include a long train.

A-line dresses are ideal for many body types. The long, continuous lines elongate a shorter bride. The A-line skirt slims and hides a heavier lower body.

Fairy Tale WeddingBall Gowns
Ball Gowns

Ball gowns will remind you of fairy tales. The bodice is fitted and the skirt is very full.

These type of gowns are very formal. Ball gowns come with a variety of different necklines and sleeve lengths - including sleeveless. Ball gowns can be worn with or without a train.

Ball gowns are best for slender figures or pear-shapes, as the full skirt hides large hips and thighs.

Column (Sheath)Column (Sheath)

The column wedding dress has a very slim shape that flows straight down from neckline to hemline.

These type of gowns are normally floor length and can be worn at casual or extravagant weddings, depending on the fabric.

Column gowns are best for thin brides. The straight design does not allow to hide many body flaws. This kind of dress looks especially nice on short, lean women, as it elongates their silhouette.


The empire gown has a raised waistline that begins right below the bust. From there, the dress flows toward outward to the floor. Traditionally, the empire dress has a square neckline.

This design is very versatile and comes in a variety of skirt styles from contouring to A-shape. Sleeves vary from sleeveless to flowing, bell styles.

Empire dresses can be worn at outdoor, casual weddings, as well as fancy church affairs. Though it is nice for any body type, the empire gown is especially fitting for small breasted women.


The mermaid dress looks exactly as the name indicates. The dress is contoured against the body all the way to the knee. Then the gown flares out to the hem.

This style is considered the sexiest of the five basic wedding gown types. Because it hugs the body, you must be very confident to wear this style.

The mermaid gown is normally worn by slender women. However if you love your curvy figure and want to flaunt it, this dress may be for you.
