The Dorchester Wedding

Dorchester Hotel, London, wedding dress, CG Bridal,

Silk duchess satin wedding dress by CG Bridal

It could not have been a more perfect sunhine Spring day for the wedding of CG Bridal client, Elaine to Noel.
A marriage of two continents, China and Jamaica unite set atop the stunning London panoramic view, including a traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony. The latter, a first for Clariscia to experience. CG truly had her, work cut out, as the bride was in her fifth month of pregnancy. The brides outfit came together beautifully with the grace of God and the sewing fairies who drifted in on gossamer clouds. Working carefully and neatly around Elaines growing bump making sure no button was out of place on the very delicate, appliqued lace tulle jacket and that no pleat fell adrift accross the dress front. An unfussy neatly edged veil completed the brides ensemble.
The Dorchester Hotel staff descreetly provided the finest backdrop, attending to every need without overshadowing the intmate gathering of relatives and friends. A very special day and we at CGHQ wish the newlyweds, many years of happy marriage together.

Bridal Jewellery – How Do You Choose?

What accessories to wear on the day of the wedding is just one of the many decisions a bride will have to make as she plans ahead for the big day. Should she wear something in her hair? Should she go for a tiara or a comb? Wear her hair up or down and will a tiara complement that best or should she just plump for a subtle jewelled headband?

Bridal jewellery comes in an increasing array of different types styles, plain or with beads and stones, these include Swarovski, diamante, fresh-water pearls, Mother of pearl, Venetian glass and seed beads.

Tiaras are again a very popular choice of headwear for a bride. Available in a large array of shapes and sizes with designs ranging from classic diamante styles to intricate handcrafted stunners using wires and beads. The choices are endless.

At CG Bridal, we recommend that you choose your accessories after choosing your dress rather than before, with this in mind, our in house jewellery range is always carefully selected to compliment our gown collection. If you opt for a fuller skirt style wedding dress that is adorned with sparkling crystals or one that has a busy lace pattern, it would be wise to go for very simple, contemporary accessories. Maybe a delicate crystal or pearl necklace and simple headband or comb in your hair. To go for anything more ostentatious would be overkill and would detract from the beautiful presence of your dress and you.

On the other hand, if you opt for a modern, simple style then you can push the bat out a bit more on your accessories by making more of a statement. A bit of sparkle on a tiara or an extravagant choker or cuff bracelet will not be out of place.

The trend for vintage bridal jewellery is huge at the moment. Gorgeous statement diamante vintage necklaces from 1930’s look beautiful if worn with a vintage satin dress. A 1950’s diamante brooch for instance can transform a very plain dress by placing it on the waistband, sash or placed on a feather bolero or stole. You can also add a touch of glamour to a simple bridesmaid dress by attaching a statement brooch. Why not also combine your vintage find as your “something old”. Have a look and see what is lurking at the bottom of grandma’s jewellery box, you never know what treasures you may uncover!

Swarovski crystal is still by far one of the most popular choices for brides when they are choosing their jewellery and wedding accessories. The AB coating on the crystals give a dazzling rainbow effect when it catches the light and this is what makes it such a glamorous choice for the bride on her wedding day.

By choosing the correct accessories and jewellery to compliment your dress, it will only serve to help make sure that you feel like a million dollars on your special day.

“Blue” Wedding Dresses London Victoria

Those brides who have opted for a less traditional non white dress, it’s not that non-conventional after all!  The traditional colour for Wedding Dresses here in the UK was blue which was viewed as a symbol of purity up until the reign of Queen Victoria who opted to wear a white Wedding dress for her wedding ceremony to Albert in 1840.

All has not always been as it originally appears with other traditions held dear to us in regard to tBlue brideshe Wedding ceremony.  The throwing of a bouquet to be caught competitively by an eager hopeful bride to be was formally marked by a glass ring hidden in the Wedding cake being found. And speaking of the cake, this was shock horror, in the past made of meat!

Even the engagement ring as we know today was a new introduction in the 19th century, implemented by diamond company De Beers as a clever marketing campaign to boost the sales of rings.
