Stay up to date with all that’s new and noted in the world of weddings - we give you the lowdown on this week's bridal buzz.

Silky smoothBrides to be, look like a star getting ready on your big day, wearing the sleep and loungewear range from For Every Minute. You’ll be so comfortable you might not want to change into your gown! Every piece screams modern glamour, from silk robes to chemises for your wedding night or honeymoon. And when you wear it around the house later you’ll feel as fabulous as you did on your big day. Our fave? The rose drawstring chemise. 

Just lovely
When using a traditional gift registry, it can often be hard to get everything you want from one place, or agree on what you want – until now. Enter The Lovely, a site that allows you to create a personalised gift registry for any occasion, much like a Pinterest page. From jewellery or home decorations for you, to games and appliances for him, you can add gifts from anywhere, anytime, that reflect your personality and taste. And it's super easy for everyone to use. 

Finest accessories
Astra Bridal is renowned for having New Zealand’s biggest range of international designer wedding gowns across three locations (Auckland, Hamilton and Wellington). But did you know it also stocks a range of other bridal details, from garters to cake toppers? Our accessory of the week is the gorgeous personalised bridal bag, valued at $65, ideal for holding big-day essentials such as an emergency kit. We have one of these fantastic Astra bags to give away. To enter, sign up to the Bridal Party via our website and email us with your name and address before 5pm on Friday, February 28, 2014, and you’ll be in with a chance to win.

Handsomely tied
Listen up, grooms. Having created superb quality neckwear for just under half a century, Barkers is well equipped to get you looking sharp on your big day. Choose your fit and preferences from Barkers’ vast collection and ‘tie’ the knot in style.

The team will consult with you one on one to craft your fresh and modern, yet instant classic new accessory. Visit them today for a piece combining sparkle, exquisite colour and rarity - yes please!
