Australian designer Alex Perry is an amazing designer. I am in love with the way he shows off a woman’s shape and for over seventeen years he has not only been designing stylish gowns for the stars and starlets but also amazing bridal couture.

Now Alex is turning his hand to a ready to wear range featuring his signature designs. The range will consist of over 30 different gowns and the team at his boutique trained to deliver high quality service and a true bridal service.
In Alex’s words “I have included the most requested and timeless details in the ready to wear bridal range … the ultimate strapless corseted bodice, the most flattering sweetheart neckline, the slinkiest of goddess gowns and the most romantic floaty silver screen chiffon skirts” he says of the designs.
Colour palettes include pearly sheens, milky whites, creamy almond, blushing rose, platinum and champagne gold hues.

So after today’s spoiler by Cynthia Nixon (which, don’t worry I’m not mentioning) about the forthcoming Sex And The City movie, I had to post this pic of the girls on Carrie’s wedding day.
Can’t wait! Now to con someone into seeing it with me. I promise there may be cocktails! (oh who am I kidding, there better be!)

‘Jo Gartin’s Weddings: An Inspiring Guide For The Stylish Bride’ is a fabulous book full of little ideas and inspiration for your wedding day. The ideas are achievable for the average bride but are creative enough to allow you to put your own touch on it.
In the book, Jo showcases some of her wedding invites, transforms budget wedding gowns with simple tricks, provides simple guides on colour choosing and little thoughtful gestures for your guests like a basket of pashminas or parasols, lolly buffets and guest book ideas. You can buy the book from any bookstore or Amazon.

You’ve just gotten engaged and you spot the massive advertisements for the big bridal expos! Hooray! A day of wedding goodness!
American Candy Stand Cupcakes exhibited at a bridal expo in Adelaide.
These shows aren’t for the faint hearted, so here’s 7 hints for making your way through them!
- Pack water and lots of it- the halls will get hot with the masses of people
- Take labels pre printed with your name & address to save you handwriting onto all those forms you want to fill out
- Consider skipping the fashion parade or going to a later one and talking to suppliers while the parade is running. It’s quieter and you can get a good look at their stalls
- Gather as much information as you can so you can sift through it at home rather than trying to make decisions in the crowds.
- Wear comfortable shoes!
- Have a giggle- there are some weird and wonderful things at these expos, so take it easy, be relaxed and have a giggle or two. Don’t forget to try the samples while you’re at it!
- Stop for coffee breaks! You’ll need it to unwind and regroup.
