 Selecting outfits for your junior bridal

party members could possibly be one of your

most enjoyable experiences in the lead up to

your wedding day 
There’s something rather special about the delightful expression on a little flower girl’s face as she twirls around in her dress, or the proud grin of a page boy who is wearing his very first suit. Co-ordinated well, your junior attendants can enhance your entire bridal party’s look and make a stylish statement.

 Even those brides who seek fashion forward

style for their bridal party will still 

choose a traditional gown for their flower 

girl essentially because little girls look

 best when they're dressed as little girls

Stellina Cute Couture For Children has introduced exclusively in Australia an exciting range of ready-to-wear flower girl and page boy wear by UK Designer, Nicki Macfarlane. Nicki Macfarlane was chosen to create the flower girl dresses for the Royal Wedding of Prince William to Kate Middleton.

It is an honour to be able to bring Nicki Macfarlane’s range to Australia, says Melina. Her designs are truly beautiful using rich fabrics with a clever combination of modern and traditional styling 

Australian brides will even have the opportunity to dress their flower girls as Kate Middleton dressed her own flower girls with the inclusion of the “Eliza” dress in the new collection- a dress based on the The Royal Wedding flower girl dress design.

Hair styling options now go beyond fresh flowers or the traditional tiara- hair spirals and hairpins are on trend and these can create a sweet, subtle look- a few single pearl or crystal hairpins dotted around a stylised bun creates a gorgeous hair accent. 

 When it comes to jewellery and make-up,

less is definitely more- a fine bracelet and

perhaps a little light lip gloss on older age

flower girls is all that is needed for 

 beautiful results

Wedding Dance

Your first dance together as husband and wife will be a memory of a lifetime. It is quite a tradition and should be fun.

By the time it comes to dancing at the reception people are ready to let their hair down and enjoy themselves.

It is an opportunity for the newly married couple to show their love for each other and surprise or entertain their guests with a slow waltz or a beautiful choreographed dance routine.

The dance and music you choose should be a reflection of you both as a couple.

Here is a fabulous video of Ryan and Frankie having their first dance and having LOTS of fun!

Growing in popularity is for the wedding party to perform a routine together after the bride and groom have performed their first dance. This idea can even add to the fun of preparing for the wedding with routine visits to the dance studio.

Tradition says the bride and groom dance together first and then the parents follow. The father of the bride will dance with his daughter and the groom dances with his mother.

Then the groom's father dances with the bride and the groom dances with his new mother-in-law.

This tradition came about as a way of showing the new mix of the two families.
The first dance is usually performed after the main course is served and ideally, directly after the cutting of the cake.

If you are performing a set routine for your wedding dance you will not want your guests joining you on the dance floor so an announcement by your MC is a good idea! Something like the following:

“ Ladies and gentlemen I would now like to welcome the bride and groom to the dance floor to perform their first dance as a married couple.  I would ask all guests to keep the dance floor clear until our couple have finished their first dance together. I would also suggest you get your cameras and tissues ready as I know they have planned a beautiful routine that is sure to capture your hearts."

When it’s all said and done though, it’s your wedding day so you can always start your own tradition and have a great time!
