When Freddie met Lilly brides Nicole (2)So please tell us – with months (or even years!) of planning, did the Big Day run smoothly !?
Our day was perfect. Is that even possible? Apart from the bride arriving before the groom, a few laps around the block and we were walking in close behind them to see all our guests eagerly awaiting our arrival. We were so lucky to have the help of some loved ones and suppliers to take care of all the details on the day and what a wonderful job they did.

Was your wedding themed? Did you and your hubby go for a traditional feel or more contemporary style?
For our wedding we wanted to go for an elegant, modern glam wedding, with a touch of tradition. We had hues of silver, white/ivory; sequins and fairy lights.

Who knew that planning for formal was such a stressful task? I certainly didn’t! Don’t even get me started on how even more stressful the day of formal is, but nevertheless, I definitely had one of the best nights of my life! It was such an amazing experience that I will forever cherish with me and my closest friends!

I have chosen to wear the Sabella Stretch Gown in RedI think red is just one of those colours that will match pretty much every person while still keeping it simple and elegant. For my hair, I just had my hair down in curly waves with a soft smokey eye look. For my accessories, I kept it plain with silver jewellery to match my belt and a white clutch. Again, I love having the idea of keeping everything simple but elegant; I think it just makes the whole look sophisticated and classy.

When Freddie met Lilly’s new collection, Indianna, will be launched at Australian Bridal Fashion Week. The 24 piece collection featured stunning European laces and silks in romantic silhouettes that show off a woman’s beauty and elegance.

So please tell us – with months (or even years!) of planning, did the Big Day run smoothly !?
Our wedding was perfect. Everything ran smoothly and honestly, I had no stress leading up to the wedding and especially not on the day. I enjoyed the whole process and actually miss planning a wedding now that it’s over! We booked our venue 12 months before we got married so that was the perfect planning time for me.

A growing trend for modern weddings is to incorporate personality, tradition and vintage style together to create a special celebration that will be remembered for years to come.

While there are many aspects to planning a wedding, and dozens of details to take care of, most people would agree that a wedding gown is one of the most important and should be chosen with care. Your wedding gown is not something to be chosen lightly.

So please tell us – with months (or even years!) of planning, did the Big Day run smoothly!?

In all honesty, there were a few hiccups in the morning before the ceremony from the groom losing track of time whilst eating lunch out with his groomsmen (lucky him!) to the car driver getting horrendously lost and making an illegal u-turn on the highway, cutting somebody off. These events are comical now, looking back, and in fact just increased the level of comfort that I felt when I saw my handsome groom standing at the end of the isle after I survived the car ride in. The rest of the day ran smoothly and was so relaxing!

high neckline wedding dress wfml adelle gownWhen you’re planning a wedding, there are dozens of details to take care of – but none more exciting than choosing your wedding gown. Whether you and your fiancé have chosen a simple affair, or a more elaborate gathering , your wedding dress is the star of the show. All eyes will be on you, so it’s important that you choose a dress that suits your personality, taste and style.

If you’ve decided to go the more traditional route with your ceremony and reception, you may want to think about a high neckline wedding dress; these are also the perfect choice for getting married in the cooler months.
