Among the rising trends is an Alice in Wonderland wedding.

What is an Alice in Wonderland Wedding?

When most people think of this fairy tale, they envision the Mad Hatter, a rabbit hole, and a pretty but curious little girl. These may not be the typical elements of a fairy tale wedding, but these whimsical and elegant characters can be transformed into a real-life fairy tale for a day that will be remembered forever.

Without a fabulous dress, the wedding just isn’t the same. But the question, “what to wear under your wedding dress,” is of the uttermost importance before the big day. What you wear underneath can either enhance your dress or diminish its entire look. Even the most stylish dress will not look right if you don’t have the right accoutrements underneath.

Luckily, most wedding dress shops, like When Freddie met Lilly, carry a wide selection of both dresses and accessories, so you can choose the right one to wear that will complement your dress and make you look like the beautiful bride you were meant to be.

Congratulations on your engagement! Next is where all the fun starts, planning your big day. However, when you are planning you will have a lot of important decisions to make. One being whether or not you should go with short or long bridesmaid dresses. Thankfully, Brisbane designer When Freddie met Lilly offers the best of both. In the end, however, it will be up to you to choose which style goes best with your overall wedding theme.

Consider the Formality

One thing you always need to look into when trying to decide on which style dress is best is the formality of your wedding. If you are going to the traditional, formal, church wedding, you might consider going with a longer dress instead. Shorter dresses are more for more relaxed or outdoor weddings.

When Freddie met Lilly brides KyraIn this edition of when Freddie met Lilly brides our beautiful bride Kyra reveals her secrets for a perfect wedding day.

So please tell us – with months (or even years!) of planning, did the Big Day run smoothly!?
We had a long time to plan our wedding!  We had been engaged for about five years (can’t rush these things) and only really started to get into planning after I had bought the dress.  Even then the date we set was 18 months in advance – so heaps of time to plan!!

Our wedding day ran so smoothly.  The preparation on the day was super relaxing. I had the two most attentive bridesmaids you could ask for and it was so cool just hanging out all day with your best friends (and mum!) drinking champagne, listening to music and getting pampered with hair and make up.

In this edition our bride Laura Spencer talks about her wedding and her perfect wedding dress. She got married in January.

So please tell us – with months (or even years!) of planning, did the Big Day run smoothly !?
The day ran totally smoothly. I was never the type of little girl who always dreamed of getting married and had this pre-planned idea in my head. Instead, all of the preparations happened in the six months between us getting engaged and the wedding. We were pretty relaxed and knew that some things wouldn’t work out as we imagined, so we just ran with anything that was a bit ‘off script’.

wedding dress train addie gown when freddie met lilly brisbaneWhen it comes to weddings and your wedding dress, there is no set rules. However, there are several traditions that brides feel the need to live up to. One tradition being the train. Brisbane designer When Freddie met Lilly want you to know that your wedding can be anything you desire. Although there are no set rules for a wedding dress train, here are some basic guidelines you can look into.

Wedding Dress Train for a First Time Bride

Trains are more or less for anyone and everyone. However, they say the only time you should avoid a train is if you are renewing your vows or if this is your second wedding. A wedding dress train is more of an elaborate statement that should be left to those who are getting married for the first time. This goes hand in hand with the bridal veil; both are for the new brides only.
