The perimeter of our imaginary 40′ x 80′ tent is 40′ + 40′ + 80′ + 80′, so you’d need 240 feet of wall. Solids, clear, and cathedral (walls with windows) are standard. Fabric walls are nice, but they are for looks only. They won’t keep in the heat or keep you dry. Food – Have some…even if all you are doing is a champagne toast, but be careful not to overdue it. No one is going to feel like dancing if they’ve just finished off a 20 course dinner with 3 different meat courses.

In India, the wedding rituals and clothes make the wedding as much as that of the bride and her groom. Both look their splendid best in gorgeous clothes. Not just the couple, but the guests attending the family and the relatives are often seen dressed up to the teeth. The bride is dressed up in auspicious colors, whereas the bridegroom is dressed to exude a regal aura. This style of dress will flatter pear shaped or slender shapes. The full skirt will hide a rounder bottom and give a fuller look to a thinner bottom. Your unexpected item is a way to add even more individuality to your wedding day look. It could be anything from a statement necklace to a brightly colored shrug to an armful of bold bangles. The point is to add something that really represents you and what you love.

Vera Wang is not the only high profile bridal designer who got her start due to the lack of selection when she planned her own wedding. Amsale Aberra, who was born in Ethiopia, had a very similar experience. Amsale grew up in Ethiopia, which she left to attend college in Massachusetts. Her focus at the time was commercial art; Aberra later said that while a child in Ethopia, she did not know that there was such a career as fashion designer. It was while in college that Amsale became interested in designing clothing; it all began when she started to sew her own clothing to save money. What was born of necessity turned into a passion, and Amsale moved to New York to attend the famed Fashion Institute of Technology.

I wore a really simple black slip dress with a low cut back and a slit at the front, the dress was beautiful on it’s own but as I was there for the whole day I thought best to wear my Kate Moss slip dress over the top and then that way it felt a bit dressier for when the evening guests arrived.

As for Princess Diana, around the time of the famous Will and Kate wedding there was a whole special on that dress.

A cocktail style wedding would call for a figure hugging gown with a deep v-neckline. They also wore a couple of shades from white, and colours like ivory, salmon, rose, or violet. Inviting guests to pre-wedding events where a gift is required, like a bridal shower, and then not inviting them to the actual wedding is a big no-no.

Flaunting your fancy celebration and then not allowing them to attend is just cruel.
