Upcycling – using something old to make something new – has become more popular in recent years. If there’s a dress you love but have never been able to part with, or you love your mothers’ wedding dress but think it’s a bit out of date, why not refashion it into a wedding dress?

Little black dress a bit too morose for you? Why not try a little white dress? Sticking with the traditional white but opting for a shorter length is a quirky way of revolutionising wedding traditions.

Mercy and Steve’s Big Wedding Weekend – Part I

“So, will you guys do it?”

I asked as they walked through the doors of the auditorium and onto the Level 4 – Green Bar. The backdrop is a breathtaking view of the iconic London Eye and the Houses of Parliament.

“Definitely!”

They both said in unison. The response was immediate, enthusiastic and unreserved.

It’s about 7:30pm on a warm Tuesday evening. Along with the members of #TeamNOWE, Mercy and Steve are guests at an Open Evening to hear about the Southbank Centre’s plans for the Big Wedding Weekend (30th and 31st of August) in the Royal Festival. Part of the Southbank Centre’s Festival of Love, the Big Wedding Weekend hopes to bring 160 together people from different backgrounds to celebrate what is arguably one of society’s most recognised milestones — the joining of two lives together in marriage.

The Dress that Keeps on Giving: The couture dress

By Taya Riabkova

If you’re going to splurge on a wedding dress, why not buy a couture dress or the most fabulous one you can afford that you can wear again, perhaps to a formal event? The trick is to stay away from dresses that scream “wedding”. Short or long, red or blue, lace or velvet, the choice is yours! A sleeveless blush pink silk dress with sequin embellishments, for example, is a stunning alternative to a traditional white wedding gown.
