Wedding Retinue Dresses

The closest people to the bride and groom is the wedding retinue. They are of huge importance and planning for the bride and her wedding day.

Looking your best is essential, as the bridal party is part of many factors and photo’s of the wedding celebration. 

The dress a bridesmaid or maid of honour chooses to wear should complement the wedding as well as who you are, your figure and most importantly, be a comfortable fit as the wedding day is a long and exciting day with many responsibilities.

With Sandy Toes & Salty Kisses, We Became Mr & Mrs

beach wedding dresses

It’s hard to imagine a more romantic setting for a wedding than the beach.
 
Exchanging vows at sunset, feeling the sand on your feet. Enjoying the breeze through your hair and the whisper of wind on your cheeks. Not to mention the natural flow of your beach wedding dress.
 
Choosing the best dress for your special day, you should be taking all aspects into consideration. If you as a bride and groom are stepping on to the sand to exchange your vows. Light weight fabric will create the perfect beach wedding gown.
 
A bohemian style wedding dress is always one to consider. With simple finishes, more flow and not extremely long. A chiffon wedding dress would add a sense of elegance and romance to your beach wedding day.
 
If the beach serves as the scenery, then the dress can be slightly more complex. Still with breathable fabrics like a linen or cotton but slightly more accessorised with a few embellishments.

  • Soft Tulle Mermaid Dress
  • High Low Dress

From Subtle To Extreme And Anything In Between

themed wedding dresses

What best way to share your wedding day with loved ones than by truly expressing your passion or obsession and who you are with a themed wedding.

By adding a touch of colour, a specific print or image, or finishes and embellishments to your dress and decor. Your wedding ceremony suddenly becomes a story. A themed wedding is not only unique, it’s also memorable.

Some brides choose to have their dress custom made in solid colours such as green or red, maybe even black and white. 

Traditional African weddings are also a very well known used theme, using traditional prints as finishes or adding detailing to the dress. 

The exciting aspect of having a themed wedding means you can go crazy! No limits. From a simple romantic whimsical ceremony to an extreme TV Show or movie inspired wedding concept such as the Game of Thrones.

A Bridal Classic Made Fresh For The Modern Bride

A true vintage wedding features historical references while still keeping a modern touch. 

A vintage wedding is styled to reflect the look of a time gone past.

Besides the venue and decor, the theme is highly expressed through what wedding dress you decide to wear. 

Vintage bridal dresses often include fabrics such as lace and details such as pearl buttons, long sleeves, cap sleeves and low backs.

  • Embroidery
  • Bronzes And Golds
  • Frills And Flair
  • Bell Sleeves

Be Naturally Beautiful

plus size wedding dresses

Naturally, every bride has her own version of what her wedding gown should look like.

Without a doubt, lace continues to be one the favourite fabrics for curvy brides due to its elegant sophistication and timeless appeal. It adds a feeling of pure romance and a feminine charm to your dress and look. 

Sleeves are most definitely in for a plus size bride. All lengths of sleeves offers a bride lots of choice to maintain the balance in coverage and an all over look. 

A less structured wedding dress is comfortable, elegant and less figure hugging which provides a softer silhouette for a fuller figured bride. Satin and tulle gowns also create a less fitted look without losing any body shape or curves that a curvy bride loves.

  • Empire Dress
  • Satins & Chiffons
  • Sleeves
