Just in case you didn’t know, colour is a big trend for 2013 bridal collections and Lazaro has made that clear!
As soon as I saw the collection it screamed out fairytale, princess bride! And there’s no doubt that if you were to wear one of these dresses on your special day, that you’ll feel like Cinderella.
The collection features sweetheart necklines, tiered voluminous skirts, lace appliques and plenty of tulle. Enjoy!

Gele, head tie or head wrap, whatever you call it, this is the tiara of a West African bride. It is the crowning moment that completes her traditional attire and must not be taken lightly!
Not only can a Gele be worn by a bride on her wedding day, it can be worn by her guests and at other special occasions such as the traditional engagement. If you’ve read the blog post on ‘African Wedding Attire’, you would know that the Gele is traditionally worn in the second stage of the wedding reception when the bride and groom have changed into their traditional wedding wear.
The art of Gele head tying is not an easy one to master, which is why most brides have theirs professionally tied by an expert. Segun Gele is known as the number 1 in African head tying. As a little boy watching his mum struggle to tie her Gele before church, Segun would jump in at the opportunity to help. It was from this little seed that it all took off for Segun and has now turned into an international Gele artist!
