JLM are a really well established New York label that went under my radar before my bridesmaids boutique opened on the first floor of Miss Bush HQ. I often hear brides and their friends talking about 'wear-again' potential of bridemaids dresses. Is this likely? Well have a sneak preview of the Noir by Lazaro and the Alvina Valenta bridesmaids dresses and I think, yes, it is likely that they could become very useful LBD wardrobe staples.

First was Matt Maurice and his partner Lotte from Matt Mauice Event Music http://www.mattmaurice.co.uk/ . Matt is the event DJ of choice for some of the countries brightest and best wedding and event planners. Although he has a team of DJs I am very fortunate that my event is early evening and in 'low season' for weddings otherwise I would never have tracked down the man himself! (Word to the wise - like photographers - there is only one Matt - so book without hesitation!)
Secondly was the wonderful Liz from Stressfree Hire http://www.stressfreehire.com/ . The only problem I think I'll encounter is wanting everything they do! If you attend on the 23rd don't be surprised if there is some wow factor - I'm itching to share the plans - but I can't spoil the surprises!
Take a look at the kind of work they do -

high praise in deed! Lisa is going to event plan the cocktail party and fashion show on the 23rd March. I can't wait to see her, a UKAWP pro, in action. I am expecting lists, spreadsheets, guest management, supplier coordination all wrapped up in a very stylish manner - no pressure then! My aim is not to act like a Russian oligarch - flying in forests of flowers to meet my extravagent tastes. Using an event planner should free me up to do what I do best - obssess over the dresses.
Finally a few more dress sneak peeks - I was supposed to see my Jesus Peiro agent last week - but traffic chaos prevented it. What I do have, however, is some jpegs of some of my favourite Spanish label's 2013 collection. Want to see? Yes I thought you would. I am still deciding which dresses to order - in light of the fact I can't have them all! Feedback would be marvellous - especially if you are a fan of uber minimalist lines. These are a few that stood out to me...
