Everything but the dress: local suppliers advise on dressing the wedding party
Here at Your Berks, Bucks & Oxon Wedding magazine, we think your wedding day look isn't just about the bride's wedding dress or the groom's suit. Yes it's the first item you want to think about purchasing for your big-day attire, however the right co-ordinating accessories can really make or break your outfit.
Depending on the type of wedding you're going for, what season you're aiming for, or even the time of day of the ceremony, you may be considering a change into an alternative outfit. Think about some comfortable shoes for dancing or even a cocktail dress to wow your wedding guests.
Whether you're searching for the finishing touches to your bridal look, or the perfect accessory for your hubby/wife-to-be or bridesmaids/bridesman, here's what's in store now across Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire boutiques and retailers...
