Time for another round of Brides Seeking! To make it easy to find things, each Brides Seeking post will be updated with answers from the comments and emails- so check out the previous Brides Seeking for some answers!

Bride #1 I am in search of the perfect Tiffany Blue heels. I don’t want too high of a heel, preferable less than 3 inches. I want peep toes so that my manicured toes can be seen! icon smile Brides Seeking Edition #2 Thank you!”

Bride #2 “I am trying to look for a diary of folder of some sort that can help with the organisation of weddings and has all the essentials within so you don’t miss the finer details. one that can hold who is doing what and quotes and also arrangements so that it’s in a neat tight package for the bride to keep with her if she is really busy.”

Bride #3 “I’m seeking dotted / flocked tulle similar to that used in Pronovias veils recently, in ivory. Thanks!”

Bride #4 “I am a Melbourne ‘bride to be’ thinking about DIY-ing the flowers for our wedding reception. Thus looking for wholesale suppliers of flowers + places where I could hire vases?

Also – looking for sources of white or green calligraphy pens or else, simply white or green ink cartridges…”

Bride #5 “I’m looking for ivory, pointy-toe kitten heel/short (ideally 1.5 inches or so) bridal shoes. It’s really hard to find glamorous ivory shoes that aren’t 3 inches tall! My fiance is only a little taller than I am, so I don’t want to tower over him, but I’m still a shoe-lover! Thanks!”

Bride #6 “Seeking a hair & makeup artist that has fantastic experience working with Asian brides in Melbourne. Not many out there have skills to NOT paint our faces silly due to our skin tone, shape of the oriental eyes, high cheekbones, etc. Have done as much research as I can and found a few average ones so just wondering if anyone has further recommendations? Thanks a million!”

Bride #7 “I am seeking a flat silver/pewter/other silvery metal cake stand that is big and strong enough to take a 10 inch/25kg cake, which rests on several little ‘feet’ rather than a single column stand. Have looked everywhere and cannot find anything suitable!”

Bride #8 “I am seeking bird cages – of all shapes and sizes!”

This post will be updated with answers as they come in. Remember- leave a comment or send an email to be in the next Brides Seeking!

Kasia Fink Veils

by | Accessories, Bride


Wedding blogger Kasia (who you might have seen as Mrs Seabreeze at Weddingbee) has taken the gorgeous birdcage veil she made for her wedding day and turned it into a business.

The veils come beautifully made and beautifully packaged (just check out the one she made for Budget Savvy Bride)
