SL: What was your reason for having your bridesmaids wear Silk Laundry Slips and why in a variety of colours?
LM: I wouldn't call my style overly feminine, and the same goes for most of my bridesmaids. I wore quite a minimal and modern Lola Varma dress with a polka dot veil, so tying in the polka dot dresses from Silk Laundry was definitely part of the inspiration. I wanted something a bit unique, something that reflected the girls' style, and something that bucked the notion of what a bridesmaids outfit looks like. I was also emphatic on making sure the girls felt comfortable by picking a style that worked for them. I've seen friends with DD cups look very uncomfortable in dresses more suited to flat chests, and I didn't want any of the girls to have a problem like that.
The colour combinations came from us just sharing what we loved, and I can't believe how good they looked on the day.
SL: Did you choose the dresses for your bridesmaids or did they pick their own style?
LM: A bit of both. One of the girls and I picked our favourite colours, then the girls picked from there.
SL: What was the highlight of your day? Besides saying ‘I Do’, of course.
LM: Looking around and seeing all the people that Haydn and I have grown up with smiling. I can't believe the feeling of happiness and love they all had for us. Plus, getting ready with the girls in the morning, and my friend decorating a broomstick for Haydn to dance with during the first dance (he's known for bringing out the broom at parties).
SL: Did you have a theme for your wedding day?
LM: We didn't have a theme per se, but I'd like to think that I'm not a typical girly bride. As a result, I wanted it to be relaxed and unique; fun tablecloths, polka dot veil, fun music, great bridesmaids outfits paired with colourful heels, a giant tipi, and dried florals. The Silk Laundry dresses tied in beautifully with this!
SL: Do you have a personal favourite Silk Laundry piece?
LM: I am loving the pinstripe in the slip style; timeless and fun at the same time.
