Last week, we started off this series of blog posts on the tradition of wearing something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue on your wedding day. You can catch up with the Something Old post here and today we go on to have a look at my personal favourite – something new!
Part Two – Something New…
Finding your Something New to wear on your wedding day should be a complete treat! If you have time on your side, you can pull together lists of your favourite things to choose from, or save pictures on your Pinterest page from all of the different catalogues or websites that you have been checking through.
I think the best Something New that we could start with is probably the most obvious one; your Wedding Dress! We absolutely adore this Trudy Lee knee length taffeta dress from Calm Weddings for £500
Jewellery is another great area to incorporate Something New into your look. Perhaps your beau is planning on buying you something new to wear on the wedding day? How about hinting for this stunning pair of handmade cluster pearl earrings from the gorgeous Supernova Gold - £23
Are you going to be investing a gorgeous new pair of shoes to complete your outfit? Choose a fantastic pair that will be both glamorous and comfortable on the day. And if you are able to dress them down to wear again perhaps with a pair of jeans another time, then all the better justification for buying a new pair for the big day!! We’ve fallen in love with these Jenny Pacham Peep Toes for £35 from Debenhams.
Is your wedding hair do going to be up or down? We love this pretty daisy hairclip; with a Swarovski crystal centre, it will add a gorgeous bit of sparkle to your wedding hair style at £10.80 from Flutterby Weddings.
There is nothing quite like the luxury of indulging in new makeup! Going to a makeup counter can be a great idea as you will benefit from the assistants knowledge. You might be able to get a free makeover along with some expert advice on how to apply the makeup. You can also ask for guidance on what colours will work best with your skin tone and the colours you are planning to wear on your wedding day. It is also worth checking out on-line tutorials like the Beauty School at Benefit to get some inspiration on colours and how to apply. For the best prices, shop around on-line on sites such as Pique Perfumes and The Cosmetic House.
Do you want to make sure you make it to the church on time? A brand new watch will be a lovely reminder of your wedding day that you can wear every day after the big day if you want to! We love this delicate stone set silver watch by Oasis for £19.99.
I hope you are enjoying shopping for your Something New… Let us know what you will be including with your wedding day outfit!
