Lace is one of those beautiful things that using even a hint of it adds elegance and refinement to your wedding theme. Its timeless look makes it the perfect way to add romance to your big day and really show off your vintage chic side.

We’ve been swooning over lace for sometime now and wanted to share with you 7 lovely DIY ideas to use lace on your big day!

1. Get creative: Creating your own custom lace trimming couldn’t be easier if you are based in Dubai. The local fabric shops in Satwa (Regal & Deepaks) have a never-ending supply of lace – you are guaranteed to find an option that works with your theme. Build upon the lace trimming by adding pearly white beads along the edge. If you are using lace for an evening event, consider adding subtle sequins as they reflect well at night. Remember that lace can be dyed to any colour and it is relatively inexpensive, so you can get lace trimmings to match your colour palette. Again, the local fabric shops in Satwa will be able to help achieve your desired hue.

If there is one thing I love about the wedding industry it is discovering new wonderfully talented and creative people out there. Soymilk Wedding is one of those discoveries. Jenni and Paul have worked their socks off to bring something truly unique to the industry and I think that you are going to fall in love with them a little bit. They beautifully recreate love stories through unique stop motion animations for wedding receptions, invitations, proposals, speeches, gifts….in fact, for just about anything.

Come and meet Jenni and Paul and watch for yourself their works of art.

Tell us a little bit about Soymilk Wedding and how it came about…

Paul is an Animator/Illustrator and I’m a Design maker. We are both French and have settled in sunny Queensland, Australia. Soymilk Wedding started about a year ago, thanks to a friend who came to us to with an idea of creating a memorable gift for her best friend who was getting married. Together we turned her awesome friendship story into visuals and motion for a unique bridesmaid’s speech. This very special gift was such a hit during the wedding that we started to think about developing this idea into a concept. After a few days of brainstorming, Soymilk Wedding was born! Fast forward to today and the company is now a brainchild of our Design & Animation Boutique,  Soymilk Studio.

LITD ~ Tips and Toes_0000

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of visiting Tips and Toes in Jumeirah for some serious and overdue pamper time.

I had the gelish manicure, the regular pedicure and my first LPG cellular regeneration treatment i.e. anti wrinkle treatment. It was a glorious afternoon of ‘me time’ and one that I hope to repeat soon……
