Thursday May 26 2011.


I’ve decided to introduce a more unified format to my blogs so you Bijou ladies know what to expect from The Bijou Bride’s Blog.  Inspiration Tuesday’s will be features on real brides, celeb style, how-to’s etc – Thursday Thread’s will showcase new Designer collections and style edits – Sunday Love’s will be there to introduce you to life’s beautiful things.  As always I love hearing from you so fire away with any thoughts or finds, it’s good to share!


Do you remember the Romany Gypsy Bijou post which featured the handcrafted Spanish wonders from designer Yolan Cris?  I fell head over heals in love with their unique designs in crochet and silk so I couldn’t wait to meet the team at this week’s White Gallery.   Walking into the Yolan Cris showcase room was like walking into the wardrobe of my inner bohemian goddess.  Watch their 2012 promo video below and you’ll see exactly what I mean – I want to be at that party…

The 2012 collection is seriously awesome with lots more embellishment, experimental layering and dresses named after U.S. states (I promise to share soon).  With festival season upon us I’ve put together a Yolan Cris 2011 style board to help inspire my fellow rock chick bohemian babes on their wedding days.  Why not organise your own wedding festival because one day of festivities is just not enough.

I am so thrilled that the awesome Yolan Cris bohemian inspired collections will finally be landing on English shores this summer- stockists will include Mirror Mirror and Bride Couture in London but check the Yolan Cris site for further announcements: 

You heard it here first.
