Nothing beats adorning yourself in gorgeous jewellery, slipping on your favourite earrings to frame your face, sparkling jewels to highlight the decolletage, am I right? I just love the art deco style and glamorous crystals exquisitely set in antique silver plated pewter settings are key this season. Mimco's new 'Empire' range of art deco inspired pieces are great teamed with vintage inspired wedding decor and fashion.  The glass pearls set into the silver plated pewter of the Empire Pearl Choker are garnished with drop set crystals to instantly and effortlessly add elegance to any outfit and a must have in my jewellery box for this season...and after your special day, simply pair it with a tailored shirt for a subtle statement piece.

I am so excited that flirty peplums make have made a major comeback 2012! Peplum dresses have been all over bridal runways (think everyone from Vera Wang to Marchesa and Monique Lhuillier), and for good reason – a ruffle here and a ruffle there can do wonders for any bride’s figure!  This versatile style can create, accent and conceal curves. I just love Vera Wang's latest dramatic sand coloured one-shoulder garza and French tulle ballgown with asymmetrical peplum bodice and draped skirt with tulle petal detail and horsehair and tulle corsage. It is so graceful with such an ultra feminine vibe and appeal making it one of the most remarkable and romantic Vera Wang bridal gowns for this season!!!

Your bridal handbag should be nothing like your normal day to day are not looking for something that's practical, you are looking for something that is amazingly stylish! I just adore the Paloma Pearl clutch and Mathew Williamson's gorgeous 'something blue' satin clutch - these elaborately embellished clutches would definitely make the ideal wedding arm-candy, but I think I'd find a few more uses for them throughout summer too...

Suits for 2012 are all about a cut that compliments the male form, a suit that broadens the shoulders and trims the waist.  It's all about the male physique and the revival of classic suiting elements and this seasons hottest colours!  I just love midnight blue as the on trend colour for men this winter; a staple in any mans wardrobe, this season's blue hues are luxurious - rich opulent fabrics broken up by blacks and rich metallics.  Shades of grey are also the colour to watch...the male counterpart to the minimalistic and monocromatic female trends of the season, look for contrasting trimmings and long lean cuts.  These looks are not only refined and a complimenting shade on any man, they are wearable for many occasions to come.  Oh so handsome, don't you think!!!!

Gypsophila... also known as 'Baby's Breath' has made an almighty comeback - and I have to admit, I am so excited!!! It’s beautiful, it’s girly, flowy and oh-so-pretty. It’s romantic, soft and ethereal and has a sweet innocence that sometimes seems lost in today's modern times. It's perfect for tall standing centerpieces and the key to creating romantic clouds of tiny petals is to make sure they are arranged in a spherical shapes - the overall effect is very subtle, elegant and soooo deliriously dreamy....

Of all the ways to make a personal statement, one of the most telling is a woman’s compact. Such a subtle, quiet accessory, yet it’s chosen with care and elegance and asserts volumes about tastes and attitudes.  I just love Estée Lauder’s compacts, which have become collector’s items each year, and are every bride's perfect handbag accessory. Whether you are known for “handbag elegance” or are waiting for the opportunity to treat yourself to something very special, this exclusive jeweller’s designs – filled with Lucidity Pressed Powder – are made to be loved. And of course, they all have the “click and flick” quality. The click is just the right sound of substance when you snap open the clasp - guaranteed to draw the attention and admiration of all your bridesmaids. On my most wanted list is Estée Lauder’s Golden Alligator compact below, a perfectly elegant powder compact for that quick touch up...

Oh I do love mocha (and not only in my coffee)!!! And if you prefer more contemporary styling like I do, then you will certainly appreciate one of my favourite colours for the season ahead...Magnificent Mocha! Whether its expresso, cinnamon or chocolate, this is certainly my go-to hue for an amazingly styled autumn wedding.  Paired with these amazing lush layers of linens from Wildflower Linen, I am in cocoa heaven!

I'm absolutely charmed by these keepsake bridal bouquets! I never imagined fabric flowers, twisted metal, ribbons and knit bouquets could be so elegant -so eco - friendly and sure last you a lifetime! Fabric rosettes are the perfect bouquet for the whimsical bride...the ultimate accessory for your spring, summer or winter wedding and I especially love that you can display this wonderful memento of your special day in your home for years to come.  Add why not add some color and flair to your wedding bouquet with ribbons! How cute is the knit wedding bouquet - so pretty and cozy. What a creative idea, especially for a fall or winter wedding. I bet it will keep your hands warm, too! And for the artistically inclined bride, this twisted copper metal bouquet is definitely a signature piece to treasure forever.
