Trendy Wedding Manicure Ideas for 2013 Summer

The latest wedding manicure trends vary from super-fun and tactile caviar polish to elegant nails in full-coverage nudes and the hottest colors of the season.

Ombre Glitter:
Ombre manicures are those where each fingernail is painted in a different shade of the same color or more than one shade on each nail. For summer wedding manicures, ombre polish designs get a dazzling glitter accent.

Diamond Dust Manicure:
This nail look is soft and timeless and made from real diamond dust! Available in colors Asscher, Navette and Princess, we think diamond dust manicures in these shades will make the princess in every bride really glow.

Neon Nail Polish:
Bright neon manicure shades of magenta, lemon and turquoise will really draw eyes to the engagement ring! Beatriz Blanco at Dress Up Dress Down created her own neon ombre manicure look with Lola (neon orange) and La Vida Loca (neon pink) nail shades from Orly.

Real Elegant London Wedding

The bride and groom in the gorgeous pastel green-themed wedding have completely captured my heart. They look so blissfully happy on their wedding day, and you can really tell they're having a brilliant time with all their best mates.

With the soft green colour palette holding everything together. I'm loving the bridesmaid's zingy dresses, the cheesecake wedding cake, and the vintage pictures of their parents' and grandparents' weddings.

Best UK Wedding Venues

You might want to get married in country house, a hotel, or even a castle. Picking the right wedding venue is a decision not to be made lightly, so take a good look around plenty of them and compare value for money and of course which you liked the most.

Despite the fact that the weather can never be relied on in the United Kingdom, most British couples still prefer to get married in their home country and there is a huge choice when it comes to places to tie the knot.  If you want to hold your wedding close to where you both currently live then you can search a particular region of the country and a list of all the different types of places in that area will be presented for you to choose from.

For civic ceremonies, it is possible to hold the wedding ceremony and celebrations at the same place if desired whereas for church ceremonies you will need to pick two separate locations. Many of the venues can provide rooms for guests that will be travelling a long way to attend your wedding so make a good choice for people with friends all over the country.

Hampton Court Palace

There are some great places all over Great Britain, particularly in London, but many couples have found that for beautiful wedding venues Yorkshire and Scotland are hard to beat. Whatever type of place you prefer, there is sure to be something to interest you here.

White Gallery London Catwalk

London’s leading designer bridal event, White Gallery London 2012 continued to delight on day two with four fabulous designer catwalks, solo showcases from Stephanie Allin and Ian Stuart and two stunning compilation shows.

Stephanie Allin gave a lively, upbeat start to the day’s schedule with a guest appearance from Natalie Lowe from BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing who added great movement to the collection.  The Ian Stuart show, a repeat of the first day’s production, in order to cope with the demand for tickets, once again offered the audience a feast for the senses. In the afternoon, the British Talents show opened with Johanna Hehir who focused on a long, sleek silhouette defined by a clever use of pleating and intricate lace and fine bead detailing, while MiaMia’s simple, pared down look was complemented with intricate shoulder detailing and a clever use of ruffles and ruching.

Newcomer to White Gallery, Hazaar of London’s designs delighted with their understated style statement and unique twist on traditional bridalwear which sees adaptable dresses with removable over and underskirts, transforming a look from day to formal to party.
