Are Bridal tights for you?

So, you have ‘said yes’ to the dress for many brides the most exciting part of wedding planning. It’s perfect, everything you have dreamed about but it doesn’t stop there. Now you are searching for the perfect veil, lingerie and hosiery to go with your dress.


Choosing your wedding dress

When I got married, I wore a strapless bra and lace pants, along with stockings and a suspender belt. All very ivory and pretty, I think that having something pretty under your wedding dress really helps you to feel confident and sexy on your wedding day.

Of course it is all dependant on what you are wearing. It could be you have a short dress, a long silky dress, backless, A-line, princess style. There is such a wide variety of wedding dresses and each one would need something different underneath. Some brides are wanting to wear stockings, or tights and some do not feel the need for either.

Choosing your bridal tights

Of course not only does your choice of dress effect this, it also depends on your shoes. For me open toes and tights is no, however I know that many people are happy with this. But footless tights could be just thing answer to this, if you are really wanting to wear tights and open toed shoes. Also if you are going to have a rather high heel, then you might need to think about the possibility of these needing to come off as the day goes on.

Would you be wearing flip flops, shoe-less or changing to a comfy flat pair. I know that I’m a shoes off kind of girl when it comes to my feet hurting, but I’m also more than aware that it often leads to holes in your bridal tights and stockings, which might not be want you want. So popping a pair of flat shoes under the table might be a good idea. It’s awful when your feet start to hurt.

One of the other things to think about when choosing your wedding underwear is, are you having a garter? Or are you wearing a garter but not having it removed by your new hubby during the evening reception? I think this will play a part in deciding if you are wearing hosiery.

There are so many things to think about when it comes to planning your big day, and I think you often forget the small little elements when you first start to plan.

Outfit styling with Fashion World

I love clothes and shoes and bags and jewellery and just about everything else you can buy in online fashion stores. I do like to clothes shop on the high street, but sometimes I just do not have the time to go to the nearest city which is about 50 minutes away from home. So I turn to online fashion retailers.

I generally shop online when I need something for an occasion, it’s not often I have a browse through and buy lots of new things. As much as I would love to do this, I just do not have the time to spend hours looking for new clothes.

Fashion World on-line got in contact and challenged me to put together an outfit with only got in contact and challenged me to put together an outfit with only £100. I’m always up for a challenge and I love to shop so I thought why not.

My outfits from Fashion World

It took me hours to select items that I loved, that would then go with something else. I kept on adding trousers, jackets, t-shirt, dresses, boots, bags and jewellery to my shopping bag. Then removing them, then finding something else.

In the end I was able to put together two out fits for the £100 budget. I chose a two different dresses, pair of boots, a handbag and a belt.

I love dresses, it’s not often you will see me wearing jeans or trousers, in fact I don’t think I have one pair of trousers that are not jeans. I find that you can dress most of them up and down depending on what you are wearing them for.

The first dresses I picked was the Vero Moda Ally midi dress (on the left) is more and everyday dress, that I can wear in with flat shoes, one of my large tote bags and a scarf. Or I can dress it up with the heeled boots, the belt and the quilted bag, which I think would look lovely for a meal out with my Hubby or friends. I wore this dress out for lunch with my Hubby and his Aunty and Uncle yesterday, I had a few people comment about how pretty it is. One of my school Mum friends even asked for the link for it.

The second dress Scarf Print Midi (Below) dress Is to me more of a evening out with friends style, I can see it in the cocktail bar while out with my girly friends drinking one to many cocktails. It will go perfectly with the belt, bag and boots. I love the pattern of this fabric, it also feels lovely to wear, if I didn’t want to wear it with the boots I have chosen, I could easily add a pair of heels.

Fashion World have a fabulous selection of different clothes to choose from, and the other thing I love is that they come in a wide range of sizes. The footwear is also available in a range of width fittings as well, which is perfect for me as I have wide feet.

I will be going back to Fashion World when I’m next shopping around for something nice to wear.

What do you think to my outfits?
