From flirty frocks with a retro twist to sophisticated lacy dresses, we’ll show you four of our favourite fashion trends for your leading ladies and which stores to send your girls to to pick up their gowns.
Are you looking to add some European elegance to your celebration? You should definitely consider incorporating toile accents into your decor. Toile refers to a French fabric or pattern (dating back to the 16th century!) that depicts flowers and idyllic scenes of country living. We love the idea of giving this old-fashioned fabric a modern twist on everything from gowns to favours and more.
