Spilling with natural light, this dreamy converted loft in Calgary, Canada is a little boutique we've discovered run by women who are doing things a little differently in bridal. Completley uninspired by rigid traditions and pretentious assistants, Pearl & Dot is built on the desire to create a relaxed experience for brides. Their approach is intimate and personal and their edit is beautifully understated, stocking some of our favorites by Alexandra Grecco, Anna Campbell, Anais Annette, and our latest love Daphne Newman veils.
To make an appointment or view their full collection, visit the Pearl & Dot website.

This week we're inspired by minimalism in all it's forms. In giving gifts that convey meaning (not excess) with the Vintage Luggage Co (above) and in silk slips for brides by A La Robe, that speak to the undone beauty of women.
We're inspired by the pared back beauty and nostalgic sweetness of this meringue creation by cake designer Gillian Bell (above), and by the fluid hand of calligrapher and stationer The Blackline by Lauren, who we recently worked with on our Ocean Allure tablescape at The Avalon on the Beach (below).
And finally, as we head toward the close of 2016 and into the hope, beauty, and limitless of the new year, we pause to dream with UK boutique Ghost Orchid Bride, and this stunning Odylyne The Ceremony gown. A very Merry Christmas to you and yours x

Once upon a time as a bride you had to walk into a boutique to be sure of what you were getting. The fit, the fabric, the quality, the finish, the perfection factor. Not so anymore. With the competitive rise of e-commerce, we want what we want, no matter where it is in the world, and without have to jump on a plane. We seek out the best the earth has to offer, but we don’t want it to cost the earth.
Enter CHOSEN by One Day Bridal. Offering the cutting edge creative direction One Day Bridal is known for, but available worldwide, it heralds luxury at a more palatable price point. View more of the breathtaking Muse The Collection and shop the designs from anywhere in the world here.

For as long as anyone can remember, Paris has called forth the soul of the lover, and is wistfully blamed for many of the greatest love stories of all time. It is a realm of limitless potential, aesthetic wonder and creativity, and the birthplace of modern romance. Falling in love in Paris isn’t anything new, but no two stories are ever quite the same, and for Melbourne based label Nevenka, it is the setting for the story behind the story…
Drawn to it’s magic and answering to the silent whisper echoing within her, designer Rosemary Masic felt compelled to return to Paris; the place where her parents met and fell in love, as an echo of her own journey. Shot by Jennifer Stenglein, her stunning new campaign (featuring breathtaking bohemian luxe bride and bridesmaid options!) is a celebration of life, love and endless possibility. To view more of the exquisite HALO collection by Nevenka and to shop online, see here.

The allure of minimalism is that there is nowhere to hide. It is a discipline that is sheerly exposed, no shrubbery to hide uneven ground, just the angular granite of perfection, culminating in the sum whole of flawlessness.
Forever fans of such artful restraint, we're in love with the UNBRIDALED by Dan Jones collection for this very reason. Espousing a bridal look we're currently obsessing over (the juxtaposition of a minimal gown and ornate cathedral veil, see more here), it is a collection that is symphonic in it's simplicity.
