Well, just when we thought we'd seen it all, something else comes along and knocks us off our feet.

Speaking of feet, an absolute fashion atrocity has been committed, and someone needs to call the police before this crime to humanity gets out of hand.

An Etsy shop owner is now selling custom Crocs for your special wedding day, which are covered in sparkling sequins and come in a range of colours. We feel attacked.

The company renowned for their comfortable, but controversially ugly shoes tried to change its footwear up with fanny packs and individual designer's 'Goth Crocs'.

This latest attempt to modernise their audience and cater for brides who don't want to be hobbling down the aisle in painful shoes may actually be successful, but they're fairly expensive.

Bridal Crocs are currently about €91 if bought online, minus shipping, due to the fact that they are custom made for the wedding day.

If the exorbitant price doesn't bother you, and you're seeking unbeatable comfort and sparkles for your special day, grab yourself a pair online now.

Maybe prepare yourself for the legions of people who will undoubtedly slag you all day though, just sayin'.

Selena Gomez has been keeping a very low-profile of late, only recently making a quiet return to her social media stage.

The 26-year-old Come and Get It singer is coming back to our Spotify playlists this year, collaborating with Julia Michaels on her upcoming EP track Anxiety.

While the rest of us spent our weekends in a burrito blanket, bingeing Sex Education on Netflix, Selena was throwing her BFF a BRIDAL SHOW from heaven.

Selena's certified #1 Hun Courtney Barry captioned the gorgeous post of polaroid snaps; "A few of my perfect girls threw me a perfect shower."

Oh look, Selena herself is in the background. Looking happy, relaxed and stunning in a red dress that's GASPing for spring to come.

Eagle-eyed fans spotted the singer in her friends photos, having organised the event for her BFF Courtney.


The singer and her long-time bestie have known each other years, with Gomez thanking her in numerous posts for her strength and kindness.

The pair even got matching #1 tattoos to solidify their everlasting friendship, dang that is CUTE.

Now it's Courtney's turn to get married, and Selena looks like she's supporting her like a great pal.

She captioned this post; 

"The way you handle life’s most confusing moments is indescribable and graceful. You are moved by the littlest stories to the most heartbreaking ones, you will give someone your perfume if they say you smell nice, you are freaking hilarious and always stand firm in your faith, a loving sister, an amazing friend and a beautiful daughter."

"You are the definition of FEARFULLY and WONDERFULLY made baby!"

Selena has taken time out from the spotlight after continuous physical and mental health issues, we can't wait to see what 2019 has in store for the gal.

Hopefully she has found the help she needs and deserves, it looks like she's got a wonderful bunch of pals around her.

Penneys is our one-stop shop when it comes o essentials like tights, coats and bobby pins, but shopping for bridal-themed accessories wouldn't be the first thing that would cross our minds.

To a 'Bride' embroidered sunhat to 'Bride Squad' swimsuits, prepare to be decked out for an oh-so affordable price.

Given the interest the public had in Kate Middleton's wedding to Prince William back in 2011, it's no real surprise that that fascination is somewhat intensified when you throw a Hollywood star into the mix.

So, ever since news broke that Prince Harry had gotten down on bended knee and popped the question to actress, Meghan Markle, fans of the couple have speculated over what to expect from the couple's big day.

And more specifically, what to expect from Meghan's choice of gown, hair style and bridal bouquet. While we remain in the dark over the first two, royal tradition means we're given a sneak peek into the third.

Reports confirm that the former Suits actress will be following in the footsteps of the Queen, Princess Diana and the Duchess of Cambridge when it comes to her floral arrangement, and will be carrying a sprig of myrtle up the aisle.

Myrtle is an evergreen shrub which symbolises love and marriage, and is understood to come from Queen Victoria’s own flower garden in the Isle of Wight, which is now 170 years old.

Meghan will be marrying Prince Harry on May 19 this year.


For some women, white lace gloves conjure little more than hazy memories of their Communion Day – a style move they don't intend repeating.

For others, the vintage element that a pair of gloves lends to a bride's look makes them a hugely sought after item.

But what design should you go for? Lace, pearl, long, short; the list is endless.

If you're toying with the idea of including gloves in your look for the big day, but have yet to settle on a style, why not cast your eye over the best that Instagram has to offer.

They're not for everyone, but hey, it's worth a look, right?

1. Bold, but delicate.

2.  With a hint of diamanté.

3. Opting for the longer look.

4. Distinctive, individual, quirky.

5. Then there's the fingerless option.

6. Then there's the really ornate…

7. Crochet FTW. 

8. A pearl and sequined delight. 


Some brides will happily sacrifice comfort for style on their wedding day, and many others just aren't about that life.

In fact, the idea of feeling anything other than comfy AF on their big day is not something a lot of brides will entertain.

And that is where wedding pumps come in.

With countless brides opting to go flat on their wedding day, it's no surprise that Instagram is currently awash with thousands of stylish designs just perfect for the bride who's never even heard of 'car to bar' shoes.

And here is just a glimpse of our favourites…

1. We mean….

Most of us have learned the hard way that when it comes to leaving the salon with the cut or style we envisioned, we need to let a photo do the talking.

Providing your stylist with a photo of your end goal is much simpler than talking in circles (and leaving in tears), and if ever there was a time to do this, it's in the run-up to your wedding, right?

With this in mind, we trawled Instagram for some of the most stunning bridal party hairstyles, and frankly we're in a world of contentment right now.

Would you just look at the sheer beauty of these creations?

1. We want to reach out and touch…

2. Oh stop, we know.

3 *Keels over*

4. We know

5. Yep

6. Please excuse us 

7. And we're done




If you're getting married later this year and you're a lover of Topshop, then you're going to be very excited about this news.

The high street fashion house is launching a collection of bridal gowns, and we can only imagine how gorgeous they're going to be.

Topshop Bridal

As well as wedding dresses, the store will also stock bridesmaids dresses, accessories and lingerie.

Very few details are known at the moment, but Elle has confirmed that the collection will consist of five wedding dresses, with prices starting at £350 (€410), and bridesmaids dresses starting at £85 (€100).

Launching in April, we're looking forward to seeing if Topshop reach outside of the box or go down the pretty, traditional route.


With almost 200,000 followers on Instagram alone, Ireland’s leading fashion blogger, Suzanne Jackson, knows a thing or two about style. 

But while the founder of So Sue Me insists that the key to dressing well involves a combination of high-street clothing and upmarket accessories, she says she will not be opting for an online label for her highly anticipated 2017 wedding.

Speaking exclusively to SHEmazing!, the cosmetics entrepreneur reveals that she has yet to start shopping for her August 5 ceremony – when she will marry long-term love Dylan O'Connor – but eagerly explains the importance of finding a gown which is totally unique to her.

“I kind of want to go all out,” admits Suzanne. 

“I’m going to have something that hasn’t been seen before on another bride… I have my eye on a couple of different designers so I don’t know yet, but I know I won’t be in high street for my wedding day.”

Having recently returned from a Sofia Richie-led Pretty Little Thing event in London, things seem to be going from strength to strength for the 31-year-old Dubliner.

Styles from her new lash line have already been a huge hit with beauty lovers. Meanwhile, her country-wide workshops have completely sold-out and she's just about to reveal the next instalment of her beauty line which is due to debut in pharmacies this November.

But despite her success, Suzanne remains adamant that her brand would not have reached such heights without a lot of hard work and, of course, the valued support of her readers.

“Everything I do is 150 percent,” explains the popular brunette. “I built So Sue Me from the ground. I wasn’t famous before I did it. I didn’t have any backing from anybody. I built it from nothing and I’m very proud of that.

“My readers are the reason why I am successful today, so I like to build relationships with them. [My workshops] give me a great chance to meet them and for them to hear my story.

“I think people leave very inspired and I think that it’s really important as well to give people inspiration and give them the motivation to go do something for themselves.”

Noting the change in weather, Suzanne says faux leather is her favourite trend for the Autumn/Winter season, but insists that no matter what time of year it is, she stands behind one key style rule.

“My tip for people no matter what the season, is to always invest in your staple pieces. I would say to get a really good winter coat that doesn’t look too over the top, a nice jacket maybe with a faux fur trim around the neck that could act as a scarf… Invest in a really nice pair of ankle boots, good denims and I think you’re ready to go.”

Sounds like solid advice to us!
