You Do You On Your Wedding Day

belle & bunty dune London bridal wedding collection bride shoes fashion blog

It’s been around 8 years since we both got married and 7 years since we dipped our toes in the bridal world. Things have changed. When we entered the World of Weddings there was a very limited choice in the style of how a wedding should look and things were set in their ways. A certain dress you should wear {strapless without question}, a certain {horrendous} bow you should tie on the back of your chairs, even a certain {v v dated} hair chignon that was just the norm. There were traditions that really had to be adhered to for fear of upsetting your Great Great Aunt Edna twice removed that you never see.

Fast forward a few years and now luckily for those of us that like wearing something a little different and god forbid even flattering, wedding style has evolved. If ever there was a time to ‘Do You’ it’s now. Independent designers like us showcasing their ideas of how they envisage great style on your big day and high street brands like Dune London who have just launched their shoe & accessory Wedding Collection showing you that there are lots of different options out there on your big day to make it truly yours. Now is the time, on your big day: You Do You.

It’s a conundrum. Hunting for a wedding dress when you never really wear dresses. You’re not the girl that’s always dreamt of a giant extravaganza of a ‘Big Day’. You don’t like big skirted, princess dresses but you do want a lovely frock. Obviously.

More paired back than piled on. ‘Cos when it comes to weddings ALOT can be piled on.

Sequins, lace, crystals, embellishment, beading, the Bridal Bling Squad can be out in full force. Let us level with you, we don’t wanna be in that crew. We’d rather hang out with Dune London and our own range of dresses, thanks.

What to Wear to a Winter Wedding


The world can be a strange place {let’s not get started about the political news this morning} As soon as the clocks turn and it looks like Winter is here the shops start drip feeding black into our wardrobes. A little black knitwear here, dark denim there, and right about now the sequins start. Light you’re self up like an Emo Christmas tree and you are party ready? Well no, not in our book. There are alternatives to black that are anything but basic, because who wants to rock up to their BFF’s wedding or work Christmas Do wearing boring ‘ol black #notus

There is of course a time and place for black and we appreciate it’s sartorial safety net but we think that when the party season rolls around you can do better. Dare to be different, try something new and opt for the more colourful versions. This we think is true for both clothes and accessories and Dune London look like they agree.

Tradition. Modern women can be a whole heap of contradictions. Paying for the bill. Opening doors. Wanting everything our way. We want the pleasantries but want it on our terms too. We know what we want and how to get it but when it comes to our Big Days somehow something traditional is, well, pretty nice. Even if you have to fight it out with Caitlyn Moran, when it comes to weddings ladies always resort to some sort of convention. What happens in bridal fight club….

It’s a fine line. A balancing act between enough modern but a sprinkling of those lovely old fashioned traditions that make a wedding A Wedding. If you are anything like us, when planning your big day the deliberation over your whole Look is pretty lengthy, how the get the balance right so you feel like You but on a really good day.  In Part 2 of our collaboration with Dune London we’ve styled up 2 looks that illustrate both fashion forward vs. traditional options.
