What I like, what I've seen, what inspires me, everything about fashion. Lifestyle, celebrities and parties, if it is here it is because I was there.
All my posts are not sponsored in any way, all the products I've written about are featured because I like them and because I've been invited to press events where I've seen them.
Wedding are going to be very frequent in the next few months but obviously you need to organise everything on time. Also, sometimes, it might happen to organise a wedding with a very tight schedule and tight budget. But this doesn't mean that you can't have a fabulous dress and all the nice things that come with the event. High street stores have added a bridal range where you won't have to break your bank account and still be very stylish with a minimum effort. I've picked some companies to look at for the best selections.

*In Store* Coast has got a fantastic range of wedding gowns and bridesmaids outfits, as well as anything you need if you are invited to a wedding. This gorgeous Izzy Lace maxi dress combines a short dress with the length added by the lace panel. Coast Bridal collection has got a selection of very modern and sophisticated wedding dresses, created, for a modern bride who doesn't want a classic wedding gown, in mind.www.coast-stores.com
*In Store* Still with Coast a beautiful collection for the bridesmaids, who will be happy to be chosen. They will be sure that anything that can be picked at Coast will be gorgeous and everyone will look amazing. No more cringing over wedding pictures, the wedding party will look like as stepped out from a fashion shoot. www.coast-stores.com
*In Store* JD Williams is another retailer to look for great wedding gowns without the hefty price tag. This Grecian style dress is by Joanna Hope, exclusive for JD Williams. It is made of chiffon with a bejewelled detail on one shoulder. With its beautiful ivory shade it will be great for any bride. www.jdwilliams.co.uk
*Not Yet* This gorgeous lingerie set in satin is by No.1 by Jenny Packham for Debenhams. The seamless bra is perfect so that nothing shows under the dress like those VPLs. It is not yet in store but check the website frequently so that you can snap one for you as soon as it hit the shelves. www.debenhams.com
*In Store* Another retailer for wedding gowns that will help you in finding the perfect outfit from head to toe is Kaleidoscope. The Rose Embroidered dress is gorgeous with a beautiful floral embroidery that from the neckline goes to the skirt that finishes with a small train. Full of details that make a difference like the satin covered buttons or the concealed side zip, are all pluses when looking for the right dress to wear on the most important day of your life. Check the other styles, equally amazing at www.kaleidoscope.co.uk
*In Store* Let's stay at Kaleidoscope and look at the shoes for the big day. This pair of LunarT-Bar Court Shoes will be glitzy enough but very comfortable at the same time. The upper is in satin with a diamante design, and I know that generally a bride doesn't carry a bag, but a matching clutch bag is available, that can be used on so many occasions that it would be a pity to leave it behind. The shoes have a 8 cm heel. www.kaleidoscope.co.uk
*In Store* Don't forget the gift for the bridesmaids. These beautiful earrings in sterling silver, with a semi precious stone and a diamond set at the centre are by Lola Rose. They are part of the Curio collection and the selection of the stones used on all Lola Rose jewellery makes it possible to match the colour of your bridesmaids outfits to the colour of the earrings. www.lolarose.co.uk

This lovely Wedding Journal is available at Paperchase, together with a whole range of wedding stationery like a guest book or invites and everything needed in the paper department. www.paperchase.co.uk
*In Store* If you want to splurge on something for your wedding outfit do it "Carrie Bradshaw style" by investing in a pair of Manolo Blahnik BB Leather pump. The craftsmanship is superb and it will glam up even a vintage dress sourced in a charity shop. www.manoloblahnik.com
