For the bridesmaids:

Beaded Mermaid Gown, $259.95

Beautiful necklace with a sophisticated side split.

Chiffon One Shoulder, $449.95

One of my favourites – definitely a dress you could wear again.

Jewelled Fishtail Mesh, $379.95

A flattering cut with ethereal beading at the neckline.

Strapless Beaded Bust Goddess, $319.95

Love the gorgeous cobalt colour and floaty chiffon.

Strapless Embellished Party Dress?, $299.95

What a fun bridesmaid dress, and the sky blue is so pretty.

Jacquard Suit Dress?, $279.95

So elegant, with a flattering waist sash with oversized flower.

Cascading Ruffle Dress?, $249.95 and Bolero?, $119.95

Beauty guide:

Some of our favourite new products to make sure you look your best on the day.

L’Occitane Angelica Eye Roll-On, $26.95

We can’t stop gushing about L’Occitane’s latest Angelica range, especially this ultra-fresh eye roll-on gel. A quick swipe de-puffs and reduces dark circles, a must if you’re still feeling the effects of the bacherlorette party!

Tom Ford Traceless Foundation Stick, $110

Yes, it’s on the pricey side, but you want a foundation that makes your skin look amazing (those photo albums don’t lie). Create the coverage you need, from light to heavy, and keep it in your purse for touch-ups.

Clarins Rouge Prodige Lipstick in Miami Pink, $42

The prettiest pink lipstick that’s universally flattering and comfortable to wear all day.

Innoxa Candy Apple Nail Polish, $13.95

The perfect pale pink nail polish that compliments any outfit.
