I’ve never much cared for her music, but I’ve always had a bit of a thing for Lily
Allen. She somehow manages to occupy a rarified world of pop stars, models, and first class travel, while appearing about as untouchable as a loaf of tip top.
Weight problems, miscarriages, pimples, a smart mouth and a tendency to get
drunk in public. It all makes for rather an endearing character.
Now, I’m no wedding tragic-no more than the average sarcastic, bitter mid 30’s blogger- but I did pay close attention to Lily Allen’s wedding garb, simply because her accessories were so great that her somewhat blah dress was elevated to the status of ethereal by virtue of association.
And that, dear brides, is precisely what your jewellery and accessories should be doing. Elevating your look from simply beautiful to sublime. Seagull gifts offer a comprehensive selection of classically gorgeous wedding jewellery.
Finding the perfect wedding jewellery often takes a backseat to finding the perfect wedding gown. The dress is seen as the main event. Lily Allen knew better. Earrings, necklaces, headpieces and veils can make or break the overall look. Getting it right is crucial.
Now, most brides wouldn’t seriously consider selecting their dream jewellery prior to purchasing their dream frock, though there is some wisdom in this approach. Falling in love with the jewellery first, and building your outfit around those choices, can eliminate the stress of discovering that the perfect complementary accessories for your perfect (and paid for) dress simply don’t exist.
So what was this accessory of Lily Allen’s that so captured my attention? It was a 1920’s style Spanish lace mantilla, which framed her face beautifully and managed to look romantic and dreamy without turning the bride into a piece of sugary sweet Princessy confectionary.
