It's just two weeks until Easter Monday, so if you haven't thought about getting eggs-cited about your window display then it's high time you got things sorted! I asked Helen Goodwin from Made You Look Made You Stare for her essential advice… "I like the thought of soft, sugary pastels for your colour scheme – think bridesmaid dresses alongside spring flowers, ribbons and lights, with a few sugared eggs or almonds too. You could even go down the spring greenery vibe with gorgeous vibrant daffodils. Just imagine how your bride might be visualising their spring wedding day and represent that scene in your window and interior displays."

I adore the detail on this wedding dress from bridal gown designer Lillian West, but what I love the most is that it's a combination of short and long. This means it offers wedding guests two totally different views: one from the back and one from the front!

Forget Pantone's Classic Blue – according to our regular Attire Bridal columnist, Caroline Weisters, green's very much the one to watch! "Greens are definitely wading into the water for 2020 bridal dresses," reveals Caroline, the sales and marketing manager of Bridal Fabrics. "Search up water green, sea spray and even apple tones in floaty chiffon."

Myself and my team at Attire Bridal are totally smitten with this Azalea wedding dress from Suzanne Neville's latest Flores collection of bridal gowns.

Find out more in my exclusive chat with the British wedding dress designer, who's created gowns for celebrities including Katherine Jenkins, Christine Bleakley, Elle Macpherson and Kate Winslet, in Attire Bridal's latest March/2020 issue!
I've one word to say about this gorgeous hairpiece, from wholesale bridal hair accessories and wedding jewellery company Starlet Jewellery: WOW!
Perfectly encapsulating the key hair trends for 2020 brides, the brand's owner, Olivier Laudus, tells us more: "The fall 2020 Bridal Fashion Week runway was full of jewel-encrusted hairbands, something we’re going to see a lot of next year. Although the simple floral pieces from the last couple of years were pretty, I think most brides want something that will make them feel really special – and you can’t beat a bit of sparkle for that!"
