Fit for a Princess: DSTS Spring 2011 Wedding Guide

We’re just hours away from one of the most celebrated weddings of the century, and whether you’ll be watching from the Abbey or the sofa, there’s another big day coming up that commands oodles of thought, a whirlwind of excitement and a moment in the spotlight – Yours!  Whether you’re a closet groom-zilla in the making, a dedicated maid of honour or the glamorous bride-to-be, we’ll make sure you get down the aisle in style…

Fit for a Princess: DSTS Spring 2011 Wedding GuideThe Dress
For a dress worthy of a royal affair… First stop is The Landmark’s Central Weddings, which is home to collections by standout designers Vera Wang and Monique Lhuillier (2869 8666). Next head straight up Queen’s Road Central to Designer Bridal Room, which houses some of the world’s most sought after wedding dress designers including exquisite gowns by Valentino Sposa, Karl Lagerfeld Bridal, Pronovias, Rosa Clara and Elie by Elie Saab (2167 8708).  Now march on down to Hitched! in Sheung Wan which specializes in wedding gowns, bridesmaid dresses and accessories with a glamorously contemporary edge including Priscilla of Boston, Nicole Miller, Lela Rose, Rivini and Selia Yang (2815 8330). Last stop is White Bridal Couture, which has a lovely collection of designer gowns including Melissa Sweet and Romona Keveza and can also outfit your ladies in waiting as HK’s exclusive home to the Vera Wang Maids Collection.  While there, get a head start on the finer details with their beautiful bridal jewellery and accessories as well as specially procured services by local vendors, from stationery to styling (2521 3288).

The Day
If Westminster Abbey is booked… The Verandah’s traditional glamour and impeccable service will transport you into a bygone era of colonial splendour (2292 2830). You’re bound to have suite memories at the stunning Presidential Suite at the InterContinental featuring multiple terraces, jaw-dropping views and the hotel’s signature “weddings with style” coordination. Make a splash with a poolside soiree at the Grand Hyatt’s serene indoor/outdoor gardens, glass encased banquet rooms and harbor-view terraces or sail up to one-thirtyone in Sai Kung for a casual alfresco celebration, keeping things light, fresh and fun (2791 2684). For something a bit more urban and artsy, check out Philia Home, a new intimate events venue in SoHo, or The Space in Sheung Wan, which has the feel of a New York loft and can be styled to suit your whimsical imagination.

The Details
For your royal highness only the best will do… For live entertainment with soul and style, look no further than Grammy nominated musician Howard McCrary who (we can personally attest) can keep a dance floor going from cocktails until well past dessert. Speaking of sweets, Bonnie Gokson of SEVVA will soon be opening Ms. B’s Cakery, featuring the city’s most gorgeous, delectable cakes and confections and the perfect end to your chic celebration (until then orders can be placed at 2537 1388). For printed pieces that reflect your personal style, Malia at Studio M Stationery can help you create anything from elegant Save the Dates and Invitations to kitschy Favors and custom Thank You cards. And if you need an extra helping hand, The Wedding Company are at your service for anything from day-of-event coordination to a full year of wedding planning including bridal showers, morning after brunches and everything in between.

The wedding countdown has begun…all that’s left to say is “I Do”!
