Elysian Bridal
Henry Roth’s Diana

I think it’s pretty, especially the cut but I wanted more lace/beads…

Elysian Bridal is a small bridal shop in Central. They have mid-tier international brands but don’t have a lot of dresses, around 20-30 I guess. Service was alright… but i won’t say great. They were late in my first appointment and I had to wait outside at the small corridor with poor air ventilation. Not much advice given. Price was pretty affordable (around HKD 20,000) as their brands aren’t the top tier ones, but the mark up is obviously quite high as I know the prices in US and Australia.

Giuseppe Zanotti – my bridal shoes

Bridal shoes are one of the most important item on the bridal list (what isnt?!) when i wasn’t looking, pretty shoes are everywhere. when i started looking, they were in nowhere.
I had to make sure my bridal shoes are super comfortable, preferably in platform (since ill be wearing them all day long), tall but not too tall (no more than 4-inches so that i keep good visual with my fiance!), in blush colour (easy colour to match with and my all-time fave!) and sparky (no silver!)
Looked through all the brands like Jimmy Choo, Valentino, Sergio Rossi, Christian Louboutin, Miu Miu… And been to Lane Crawford and Harvey Nics for a dozen times…. NOTHING caught my eyes.
Until I saw them…

I had never shopped in Giuseppe Zanotti, thought their shoes are too high profile. Lady gaga is not my cup of tea. And they are expensive!
But I surrendered when they told me these were the last pair… And they are in my size!!! Not to mention they fulfilled all my requirements.

Honestly, spending 5 digits on a pair of shoes is a bit insane to me… Oh well, there they are!

作為準新娘, 婚鞋是我非常著緊的一環(其實其他我也超緊張的)! 以為我要求的鞋應不算難找… 但我.錯.了. 要看的都看過了… Jimmy Choo, Valentino, Sergio Rossi, Christian Louboutin… 連卡佛Harvey Nics 都行了不知多少次, 全部失.望.而.回!
我要的鞋重點要舒服! (要穿上整天嘛)
不能高過四吋! (要高但也要保持與新郎視覺上的最佳距離)
膚色粉紅!
暗閃, 不要老套銀閃!
原本沒打算行Giuseppe Zanotti, 嫌這牌一般太誇張. Lady gaga的路線不是我的茶… 但無心插柳竟然給我找到! 最後一對還是我的size! 雖然要5位數是有點不值… 為盡快了結這事, 我還是投降了.
