We have just released our new collection of Swarovski crystal hairpieces, available instore now and making an online appearance soon. These crystal beauties range from the delicately simple ‘Love Note’ to the glamorous ‘Going To The Chapel’ haircomb. See the range below and come to our James Street boutique to be among the first to try them on.
This week we ladies at CDL HQ are dreaming of crystal weddings. We adore simple crystal draping across chair backs or sparkly bouquets for a delicate touch of elegance. But if you share our fervent love for these translucent marvels you will adore outdoor chandeliers and crystal-heeled pumps for high impact glamour.

We have an everlasting obsession with outdoor weddings. Brides experimenting with antique wooden doors, rustic bouquets and French-inspired dressing tables on a backdrop of gorgeous country terrain and luscious forests adds an almost dream-like touch to any wedding ceremony. Are you inspired by any of these charming altars?

It’s important not to forget the finer details on your special day, starting with your choice of nail colour!
With countless close-up photos being snapped of you holding your bridal bouquet and many guests admiring your engagement and wedding rings, your nails won’t go unnoticed. We love the idea of keeping it simple with soft pinks or nudes, with a hint of the unexpected like a single jeweled nail, neon tips or a smattering of glitter. Check out some of our favourite nail art below and be sure to sign up for the cdl newsletter, to receive monthly bridal inspiration straight to your inbox!
We decided to take a trip through the archives for our first bridal post of the year and share with you the incredible work of Renam Christofoletti for the June 2011 edition of Vogue Brazil Bride. Bruna Erhardt plays muse for Christofoletti, wearing stunning lace lingerie accessorised with tulle veils and floral accents. We can’t help but dream of a romantic rendezvous of yesteryear when we look at these pictures…

We had to reblog these amazing cocktail recipes we found over on Green Wedding Shoes. Light and refreshing, they’re the perfect drinks for a summertime wedding! We can’t wait to try the Watermelon Mojito…what is your cocktail of choice?
We love these romantic images from lingerie powerhouse Victoria’s Secret, who used recently married model Lily Aldridge for their 2012 bridal look book. Feminine tulle, ivory lace and pale blue silk are elegantly mixed to create a feminine and classic collection of practical undergarments for your special day. Simply stunning!

We’ve noticed the classic ponytail has been on high rotation on the red carpet recently! As a simple and understated hairstyle to compliment elaborate gowns and high impact accessories, we think it’s perfect for brides wanting to showcase a pair of knockout chandelier earrings or an embellished wedding dress. Whether it’s low or high, loose or sleek, there’s a ponytail suited for everyone. Check out the pictures below for a little inspiration!
With November bringing the start of peony season, we’ve been filling our favourite spaces with this feminine and delicate flower! With the limited peony season only lasting until the end of December, if you’re getting married this month or next, consider adding peonies to your bouquet in soft pink, cream, white, deep rose or even red. Here’s a little inspiration below!
