Another week, another round-up of the hottest wedding news in the world. Or at least on the web.
1. Alberta Ferretti’s new dresses are here!
Trust Alberta Ferretti to come up with a genius plan for her new wedding dress collection: fashioning the dress to the location. Tali Lennox is modeling her new collection of 12 dresses all inspired by some of the world’s most timeless palaces. So if you’re looking for a confident, sexy, sculptured dress you’ll probably be drawn to the Alhambra strapless number. Or if you’re more whimsical, romantic country girl you’ll probably like the vintage feel of the Balmoral – especially with that veil wrapped around your forehead. “Working on the bridal collection it’s an emotion that renews itself every time,” says Ferretti. “This year I wanted to create dresses that are somehow suspended in between dream and reality, protagonists of a modern fairytale that tells its story through the richness of fabrics and sartorial details.” Success.
2. There’s a bridesmate wedding dress debate brewing
Mainly because there’s a new report out saying that brides to be are having to cut back on the cost of their wedding and instead of having a smaller ceremony/less people a third are asking their bridesmaids to pay for their own dresses. Which isn’t going down very well with a few who don’t love having to shell out for a peach/pastel creation…
3. And are you ready for Honeymoonsters?
No, this isn’t a joke. Facebook magnate Sean Parker – the one who had a gothic fairytale $10m wedding last month – has raised the stakes and introduced a whole new trend: honeymoonsters. Or in other words, newly married couples who spend their honeymoon monitoring how their wedding has been recorded online – and then asking guests to delete anything they don’t like. It kind of makes sense: I mean who wants to pay for a professional photographer for the day only to be faced with an aisle of camera phones and unflattering pics put on Facebook the next day? On the other hand: shouldn’t you be sipping a cocktail on a far flung beach on your honeymoon rather than scrolling through your BlackBerry?
