A pregnant bride’s guide to shopping for a wedding dress

October 20, 2015

I’m about 6 weeks to go before my 2nd baby arrives. Anyone who knows me know I love bridal fashion, I obsessed over it. So naturally, I’m also obsessed with as to how to rock a bridal baby bump! How do you choose a wedding dress for pregnant bride?

I scoured the net for fashion ideas! Comfort is the key, but I’m sure any pregnant woman, or pregnant brides will say this, we still want something that is beautiful and and most flattering for our baby bumps.

I had a chance to speak to the owners of Toronto’s Bridal Boutique Sash and Bustle. Here are some suggestions. High waisted line dresses to prevent any restrictions to the bump. Flowy skirts to flatter the baby bump.

Wedding Rehearsal Dinner English Garden Inspired

October 4, 2015

When a Brit marries a Canadian..I got to style this English garden inspired rehearsal dinner and it was a blast! Their love story is one that I will treasure to be part of.From getting to know this couple to the styling, and to the seeing both families come together for the first time.

My vision of the day was to incorporate Marie’s upbringing in England. That included lots of garden style floral arrangements from the talented Rose Mint Studio. The day was to be filled with soft pastel colour palettes, and to include their love for rustic and vintage all together in the styling.

One of the special moments of the day was a little surprise for Marie. I had secretly asked Will to give me a list of quotes of why he loves Marie – and boy was that special! Even for me – reading the quotes warms my heart to know how much these 2 are in love!! These quotes were then calligraphed by Blush Paper Couture, and pinned onto a custom made frame I made. It was hung on the walls of The Hartman Gallery where this all took place. It was meant to surprise Marie while she got her hair and make up done there.

For more of Will and Marie’s love story – head on over to the feature on Ruffled Blog!!!
