Design by Louma will wow your guests months ahead of time. The founder, Louma Bardawil, creates bespoke invitations, place settings and seating plans based on each couples’ cultures and personalities. Previous invitation designs have included a beautiful silk gatefold, brown cardboard “lollipops”, and a napkin displaying the details of a bridal shower.
The cake is always an important focal point of a wedding: Gayu Lewis, the pastry-chef founder of Sugarology, promises to create “an edible work of art” based on your specifications. Past feats of sugar engineering have included a three-tiered cake covered in pink ombre roses (with the shades getting lighter towards the top).
For luxury accessories, it has to be Christian Louboutin, whose super-high stilettos are incredibly flattering. This season, the red soles adorn bridal shoes including the laser-cut gold and white Impera design (Dh4,490), lacy white Pigalace (Dh3,250) and opentoed silver Youpi (Dh2,490). Need somewhere to put your lipstick? Grab the Mina clutch (Dh11,490).
