Cre­at­ing the per­fect fairy­tale

The Jewish Chronicle - - LIFE -

IF YOU’VE just got en­gaged, are en­gaged or will soon be en­gaged, you’re one lucky girl. When the fash­ion folk talk about find­ing the one, they’re mak­ing no ref­er­ence to your part­ner but, in­stead, de­signer frocks that wow and shoes that would make even Cin­derella jeal­ous. Some of the big­gest ready-to-wear names are mak­ing waves in the bridal world with fash­ion-for­ward brides search­ing for that per­fect dress with ease. Let’s be up­front, wed­dings and the gen­eral kit­ting out of a bride does not come cheap. It’s easy to be car­ried off to the land of fan­tasy and child­hood dreams, but you need to be real­is­tic. Most dresses do come with a hefty price tag so you may need to de­cide whether you’ll sac­ri­fice your ac­ces­sories for the sake of your dress or vice versa.

With on-line bridal bou­tiques and luxe fash­ion web­sites get­ting in on the act, the choice is vast. En­sure you spend plenty of time swish­ing about in dresses. A word of ad­vice, once you’ve ‘found the one’, don’t keep look­ing at bridal mag­a­zines or shops. Don’t ques­tion your de­ci­sion and just go with it- a bit like your fi­ancé re­ally. FOR­GET THE OLD and the bor­rowed and just stick to the new and/or blue with these head­turn­ing add-ons. BLUFF YOUR WAY to a toned new you by wear­ing the right un­der­wear. It will in­stantly give you a smoother and slim­mer sil­hou­ette. For a flat­ter­ing fin­ish, ask your dress­maker about hav­ing your bra sewn into your dress for se­cret, built-in sup­port. If you choose a dress with a cut-away or open back, in­vest in low-sit­ting un­der­wear that won’t peek out of your dress. For bridal un­der­wear that won’t break the bank, check out Kelly Brook’s new bridal range for New Look.
