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!!!

Flower girl dress trends, like wedding fashion, continuously change...and for the wedding season ahead, I am so loving the miniature ballerina look for flower girls - little girls will be pretty, cute and above all trendy!  Sooooo squeeled with excitement when I came across these amazing designs by Love Baby J Couture that I just had to share.  Luscious layers of skirt, shimmer tulles, ruffles and feathers come adorned with crystals, silk ribbons and accent flower embellishments. Little girls will just love these posh pettiskirts, pettidresses and tutus made to impress the most discriminating of mini fashionistas!

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...
