2012 Academy Awards

My favourite red carpet moment has arrived- The Oscars! I love seeing the celebrities looking like the movie stars they are and this year they did not disappoint- elegance was the word of the evening. We saw many strapless gowns as well as a few long sleeved dresses and one shoulder silhouettes. Again nudes and flesh tones as well as the popular pastels were a huge hit and black was also surprisingly seen on many celebrities. As we did the rest of the awards season last night we saw many glitzy and intricately beaded gowns.

Personalised Cufflinks

As I always say it is the little touches that make a wedding personal and memorable- so why not have all the men in the bridal party wear personalised cufflinks? They are so easy to order off line and there are so many different varieties for all the important men involved in your big day. My personal favourite are the Father of the Bride cufflinks- they are so sweet!

Wedding Pennant Banners

A trend we are seeing more and more often are the pennant banners. I think these are popular especially with the DIY brides as well as the fact that you could use them for just about anything according to any theme in any colour- the opportunities are endless!
