Hello Bijou fans I admit this is a shameless request from a girl dreaming of fashion world recognition!

You may have noticed the new ad adorning the right hand side of the blog here, yes Cosmopolitan have launched a hunt for the best new blogs and I would love The Bijou Bride to be considered as one of them.

Thanks to your readership and support, finding my twinkling blogger feet has been an amazing ride so far.  I started writing The Bijou Bride Blog to provide a source of inspiration for trend savvy brides.  My aim was to bring the best bits from the fashion press into the wedding world – something I felt the traditional wedding publications lacked.  It became clear rather quickly that Bijou brides wanted a dedicated wedding fashion site with my posts on bridal style trends in not only clothing but hair and make-up, as well as Celebrity focused features proving most popular.  Well ladies, I promise to keep it up and make Bijou bigger and better over the coming months and (fingers crossed) years – with designer interviews, guest editing for other style sites, amazing competitions and exclusive events to inspire Bijou brides & grooms.  

Stylish at a young age? That’s me far right with my adorable sister & brother
I also recently employed the talents of fashion illustrator Jacks Club to give the blog its own Bijou personality.  I hope you like Miss Bijou who embodies the chic, sassy, confident yet demure bride I think we all want to be.  As always I love hearing your thoughts, so don’t be shy in telling me what you want to see more or less of, sharing your wedding journeys and cool finds.

So here’s the nomination link (note Bijou is less than 18mths old), pretty please show Bijou some love:

If we get listed be prepared to witness my tears of joy and emotional speech!

Bijou hearts to you.
