Choosing a Fragrance for your Wedding Day

Millicent Poster

By Sophia Fannon-Howell, Deco London

Fragrance is personal. Most of us know what we like and what we don’t. However, buying a fragrance for a special occasion can be difficult, especially if that occasion is your wedding day – a moment you will remember for the rest of your life, making the scent you choose forever associated with the memory. Specialising in a range of vintage perfumes, reimagined with a modern edge, we asked Sophia Fannon-Howell, founder of British perfume house, Deco London, for her advice on finding the perfect Wedding scent.

Perfect Jewellery for the groom or groomsmen on that special day!

Cufflinks

Abi Insoll Fine Jewellery today launches its vibrant and magical Vintage Button Cufflink collection, which sees buttons of glass and metal - originating from as far back as the Edwardian era - mounted on silver or gold for the perfect wrist adornment. Designed and made by hand in Abi’s workshop on Eel Pie Island, each unique set of cufflinks has been lovingly crafted with comfort, style and ease of wear in mind; perfect for the groom or groomsmen on that special day!

 

Slaters’ Statement Collection – September Wedding Style

Slaters’ Statement Collection – September Wedding Style

September is often considered a bit of a transition month for style, summer fashion seems a little outdated but it’s not quite time to break out the Autumnal colours yet. So with that in mind, we would recommend that a September groom shifts his focus from colour to pattern.  

Slaters’ statement collection has bold prints at its core, and is the perfect option for those transitional months where you just can’t pick a colour of the season.

The main print we’d recommend for September is a check, Slaters’ collection of checked suits are available in various colours, and range from being super bold, to a little more subtle, so whatever your style, you can make a patterned suit work for you.

So often we see amazing new dresses for the bride and even bridesmaids but what about something different for the groom? With more couples choosing an alternative wedding, whether it be boho, festival or vintage, getting a suit to match the look can be a tricky one.

Let us introduce you to 20th Century Chap, a vintage inspired menswear collection aimed at the dapper gent or the hipster groom.  Think Don Draper cool, with a bit of Peaky Blinders mixed in, with pieces that are closely based on the early designs from the 1930s-1950s.

Men are ditching the 'hire' option and going for a suit they can wear again and again

Britain’s biggest independent menswear brand with stockists across the UK has reported a spike in sales of lounge suits as grooms ditch something borrowed for something blue (to keep) when it comes to their wedding outfit.

Now determined to enjoy the wedding shopping experience as much as the bride-to-be, men are steering away from hired top hat and tails and choosing to buy sharply tailored suits instead with vivid blues the favoured colour.

Douglas​ said more grooms were investing in a suit they could keep with many also treating their best men and ushers to their own suits as gifts for helping out on their big day.

If this sounds familiar, then it might be time you considered investing your time and money into a tailored suit that will give you a lot more freedom in your design and fitting choices.

Read on to find out how to you should go about ordering a customised suit that will help you to look great and feel comfortable when the time comes to exchange your vows.

Low backs with intricate detailing

Stunning backs are an ever growing trend in modern wedding gowns. With your back turned to your guests for most of the wedding, brides love to have an intricate and beautiful design to accentuate the back as well as the front, wowing both their guests and their future partner.

Knutsford Wedding Gallery, Cheshire say “The trends for 2016 are heading towards stunning low backs, either sheer with delicate detailing or completely backless, allowing for beautiful elegance with a sense of drama”
