Phase Eight SS14 Bridal Collection

 

The new season Phase Eight Bridal Collection has arrived and it is exquisite! Inspired by the glamour of vintage Hollywood, the sleek and sophisticated styles are simply perfect for a destination day or a wedding closer to home.

 

Here to tell us more about the collection is the Phase Eight Bridalwear Designer:

 

What was the inspiration behind the wedding dress collection?

  • “The collection was inspired by glamorous Hollywood looks of the 1930’s and 1950’s with embellishments taken from exquisite vintage embroidery and beadings.”

 

  • “I would describe the collection as ultimate femininity, with a glamorous and whimsically beautiful vintage feel. Real wedding dresses that are soft and special to wear with delicate detailing, lots of beading, fringing and lace.  Each bridal gown, accessory and bridesmaid dress has been created to ensure that you can customise and personalise your look with beaded belts, lace edged veils, coloured sashes to link in with your bridesmaids and capes in feathers and beading to give glamorous coverage.”

First up for inspiration from the Pantone palette was Violet Tulip

This week, let cheerful Freesia brighten your big day.  

“…a blazing yellow that is sure to illuminate wardrobes this season. A tropical, floral-inspired shade, Freesia’s warmth and energy help set the stage…”

“Designers take a modern twist on the traditional for spring 2014 by pairing soft pastels with vivid brights to create a colorful equilibrium. Inspired by a mixture of blooming flowers, travels abroad and strong, confident women, designers use color to refresh, revive and defy conventional wisdom.” – pantone.com

 

“This season, consumers are looking for a state of thoughtful, emotional and artistic equilibrium,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “While this need for stability is reflected in the composition of the palette, the inherent versatility of the individual colors allows for experimentation with new looks and color combinations.”

You Mean The World To Me

What says ‘British bank holiday’ more than a backyard BBQ? Okay yes, we thought ‘rain’ too but when the summer sun is-a-shinning there’s no better a way to enjoy al fresco dining than with a bit of grillin’ and chillin’.

 

So today we’re taking some inspiration from this quintessential summer meal. Serve up a luxury outdoor BBQ direct from the grill with a bountiful buffet to create a relaxed, casual wedding celebration. For a Mediterranean destination wedding, go local with cold meat platters along with sizzling meat and fish.

 

Whether you’re dishing up this memorable outdoor wedding meal for a homely backyard barbie or a barefoot on the beach banquet, decorate your reception accordingly with strings of lights and long wooden tables, use oversized chalk boards to showcase your menu and table plan, then serve up delicious drinks and signature cocktails in mason jars.

 

Feast your eyes over these luxurious summer BBQ ideas for your wedding.
