TAILS YOU WIN The first question asked after any wedding is “What did the bride look like?” but Tux ’n’ Tails will put the groom back into the spotlight. The St Albans menswear specialist has launched a collection of slim-fit and tailored suits in a lightweight cloth with summery pastel accessories.
Morning tails are still the most popular for the big day and the new French Navy collection offers both a tailcoat and slim-fit tailored jacket.
Exclusively launching this spring at Tux ‘n’ Tails is the celebrity designer for David Beckham and Mark Wright, with made-tomeasure suits or a capsule range off the peg. LOVE LACE Lace rules for 2013 brides, says couturière Louise Marie of Radlett. This can be anything from full lace dresses to delicate lace appliqués. “There is also a trend towards straps and cap sleeves, often in lace, although strapless is still very popular — and we are seeing a lot of dresses in tulle, from full traditional dresses to fitted dresses using the tulle to soften the line,” says Louise Marie.
At Marshmallow Bride, in St Albans, the Willow range uses lace from Italy and Spain and duchess satins from Paris. Accessorise with Marshmallow’s tiaras, sidebands, combs, hair-vines, veils belts and shoes.
