So recently I’ve been doing lots of moodboard inspiration boards trying to mix high st glam with designer influences. I mean we all would love to splurge on Jimmy Choos, or be able to get ourselves that handmade bespoke bracelet we have all been dying to treat ourselves with, and we now can, by being shopping savvy. Putting together these boards has made me stumble across new wedding designers that, and now this the brucey bonus, stock their brand in departments stores we have in Manchester. House of Fraser and John Lewis are the two main ones. Another online company I found stocked some beautiful wedding wear was Net a Porter, brought to my attention from one of my student bloggers. I had heard of NAP before but I just thought it would be uber expensive so never really ventured onto the site, until now, with designer bridal wear starting from £95 it now seems oh so accessible….

If you want to showcase your wedding style and mix up the brands creating your unique look, let me show you how…..

This is a total steal from the Zara SS15 collection. For a summer city bride this floral printed front pleat dress comes in at £59.99 and the shoes at £29.99. For a bold and individual bride, its a wedding look for under £100….yes maam, love it !!

This looks by Oleg Cassini really flatters the curvaceous figure. Nipping in at the waist, hiding the areas we wish to be covered,(arms & bum) showing off those beaut pair of pins, this dress would be a popular choice. Accessorise those perfectly pedicured feet (with a bit of red polish I think) with footwear from Charlotte Mills Bridal and your set. I especially love the colour of the flowers in this heart wreath which you could give a go yourself if your crafty or get your florist to do for a modern twist on wedding flowers.

Another stunning dress to skim the curves is this lace wedding shift dress from ASOS Curve, teamed with these Dune silver shoes £110 from the wedding collection. I especially love the plait hair inspiration, its a real on trend look  at the moment…..

This is my “Something Blue” look. I am in love with this city chic look that was put together. You could source a tulle skirt from Etsy and I found these sparkly blue shoes from Zara for, wait for it…..£12.99 SS15 !!!! Go get em, (they look great with blue skinnies too). For a metallic jumper Next have something similar for £22 !! But this totally a look you can chop and change to suit your colour theme. This blue, peach and ivory wedding bouquet compliments the finished look .

Now this bridal designer is just one of my new finds that I absolutely am in love with. Check out Krikor Jobotian, this dress is totally city chic and his work is amazing, classy and unique. Team with this bold statement necklace £75 and bracelet £65  from Stella and Dot to balance the simplicity of the vest top #pureandsimple

This outfit screams summer style. From Riki Dalal we are seriously feeling this sunshine vibe. Add this peaches and cream wedding bouquet and l’ll be singing summer tunes all day long.

Lastly a golden delicious choice of day to night footwear attire…..How do you do it in style? Why Jimmy Choo footwear and these Zara pumps for £40, its a steal.  This absolute gem of a Dress is from JennyPackham  AW15 collection. One word …..Beautiful.
