Floor Length Veils 

Channel your inner Grace Kelly with a floor-length veil this season. There’s nothing more regal and elegant than a stunning show stopping veil, which is why this vintage trend is one of our favourites.  

We really love the Giselle Veil from Kinn Óir bridal. Soft, feminine and oh so delicate, this veil is the perfect choice for the season ahead.

Classy Cocktails 

The party continues with the hottest cocktail trends. 

Raise a glass to summer celebrations with champagne towers that exude elegance and sophistication. The trend of the bride and groom pouring champagne together is a fresh and fun tradition that we just adore. 

And let’s not forget the Espresso Martini—a deliciously caffeinated libation that will keep the party going all night long.
