The Vow Factor

With six more days to go before the highly anticipated Vintage Wedding Fair in Chiswick, London,  I am feeling the pressure. Trying to organise your stall in London when you're currently in Southern Europe is just a little bit over-ambitious. But, I have a few days to run around and chase my tail.

I'll be taking mostly short lace dresses from the 1950s, and Maxis from the 1960s and 1970s. The best part is knowing that  2011 is the return of lace. So for the brides-to-be who are after some examples of  this style, look no further. Please come and see us at our stall. There will be over 30 exhibitors, including an on-site alterations stall run by Unique Dress , hair and make-up, vintage live music and vintage cars.

The two unforgettable brides of early 2011

1. Duchess of Cambridge
I particlularly like the stunning wedding gown that the Duchess chose to wear. I know you've seen this a million times but I keep on coming back to this one. I love the way she looked back, and whilst doing so showed the back part of her dress. The Royal wedding was a momentous, happy occasion, not just for Great Britain, but for all the romantics of the world!

2. Lily Allen
One of our  friends recently came back from his god-daughter's wedding. Lily looked absolutely gorgeous in lace! Congratulations to  Lily and Sam! (And baby bump).
