Here, we chat to Vera about bridal style, shopping for your shape and how to plan your dream wedding...

How can a bride 'work out' her wedding style? What should she be considering?

You should never go wedding gown shopping assuming you ought to know right away [which style of dress is for you]: keep an open mind! Your wedding gown should reflect where, what time of day, the season and the style of celebration. Ultimately, there will be one that will speak to you.

How can a bride find a wedding gown that suits her body shape?

Petite girls should stick to silhouettes that are narrower and/or A-lines. The dress should feel as good as it looks. In fact, A-lines look flattering on all body types. Mermaids tend to accentuate curves and soft fabrics tend to flatter and feel less formal.

Any tips for making sure a bride doesn’t regret her wedding style 20 years from now?

When you choose a dress, make sure it is really who you are. If you normally dress conservatively, your wedding is not the time to try something risqué. You want to be comfortable. A wedding gown is about self-expression. The bride should choose a gown that reflects who she is before all else. A wedding gown must always embody the individual. Nothing can date a wedding look, it is your day to truly celebrate your love.

How can accessories transform a bride's look?

Scent is one of the most unforgettable accessories. Wear a fragrance you love on the day of your wedding. For the rest of your life, the scent will remind you of the happiness of that day. As for other accessories, keep jewellery to a minimum but a beautiful veil can create a sense of romance.

What tips do you have for creating a beautiful, memorable day?

Just try and really have a good time. Because in the end that’s what it really is about. You should have some wonderful memories about how you enjoyed yourself and how you really were in that moment.
