Bridesmaid dresses by twobirds

This summer, celebrity brides and bridesmaids have favoured twobirds designs for their big day.

When Victoria Pendleton tied the knot last month, her bridesmaids were spotted in amazing pink and purple twobirds dresses. But before them, other celebrity bridesmaids such as The Saturdays’s Mollie King and Lady Gaga had been pictured wearing them.



The adaptable, and very popular, dresses are designed so they can be worn in 15 different ways and it is made to flatter all body shapes, making them a hit!

twobirds dresses are available in three different collections, the Classic, Rosette and Hi-Low. The Classic is available in three lengths and 20 catwalk-inspired colours, perfect for any occasion, while the Rosette adds a little sparkle to the dresses with chiffon rosettes hand-sewn on to the gowns.

The Hi-Low is new to the range this year, and features a stylish, strapless dress available in 20 colours with the possibility of wearing a sash.

All dresses are made and stocked in the UK.

Earlier in the summer, Lady Gaga dressed in a twobirds £250 blush pink dress. She chose to wear hers as a halter and revealed a hint of cleavage, while the other bridesmaids looked more demure covering their chests.

Two of the bridesmaids, including Lady Gaga, accessorised their hair with a big, pink flower to match the rosewater shade of the gowns.

At the end of July, Mollie King wore hers as a one-knot gown tied across the shoulder while her sister opted for the classic halter neck style.

Wedding make-up inspiration: Natural look

I love brides who stay true to themselves on their wedding day. A recent example of this is Princess Caroline‘s daughter-in-law Tatiana Santo Domingo, who ditched a traditional wedding dress and heels for a chic Missoni gown and flat sandals (we will examine her wedding look soon). By staying true to yourself I do not mean going natural, every bride has a signature look, I, for example, ALWAYS wear eyeliner and if I didn’t wear it for my big day I would feel naked!

Although I am still not sure what make-up I will go for on my special day,  I have put together a selection of natural make-up looks to inspire future brides.



I love the looks above, Poppy Delevingne, Gwyneth Paltrow, Anna Friel and Doutzen Kroes look flawless. If this is the look you want for you big day, you just need some face primer and a cheek highlighter to give you that extra glow.



These looks are more up my street. I specially love Gisele Bundchen and Michelle Williams‘s. Too achieve these looks you can use the products mentioned above and add a nice shoft blusher and mascara and eyeliner.


These four looks are similar to the first ones I showed you, but I chose them because they show what type of lipstick/gloss you can combine with a natural look.  Soft pink colours go perfectly, you can opt for a soft lip gloss, like Dakota Fanning, or pink lipstick, like Nicole Kidman.

Which one is your favourite look? What kind of make-up will you be going for on your special day?
