Wedding Accessories for Her

As well as the traditional “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue”, there are plenty more ways to add accessories and personal touches to your bridal ensemble.

An embroidered handkerchief

Have a friend embroider a dainty handkerchief with a supportive or funny message for you to be surprised by on the day. Having a handkerchief on hand is also a great idea, for if you get teary during those special vows! Plus, it can be a wonderful keepsake from the day.

Garter

Here’s a fun one! If you’re planning on doing a garter toss, you can make your own garter with your bridesmaids before the wedding. Make two; one to keep as a memory of the day and one to do the toss. 

A dreamy hair wreath

This is another one that can made with the bridesmaids before the wedding, and used as chic accessories for the day. Each bridesmaid can make her own wreath […]

Why We Love Wedding Flowers at Our Venue

Why We Love Wedding Flowers at Our Venue

Wedding flowers are more than choosing the perfect bridal bouquet. Flowers in your home, church and of course venue create an opulent environment that injects a true essence of visual beauty, as well as an aromatic delight.

The Wedding of Finah & Chris – 22.11.2015

It truly doesn’t get more romantic than Chris and Finah’s love story. After a short period of being together, they both knew that they were each other’s soulmates, and of course Chris proposed in such a memorable way. From the moment Chris and Finah walked into our Melbourne wedding venue, we loved their appreciation for each other, and most of all we could see a deep and profound love between them both. It’s not everyday that you find your soulmate, but when you do we hope that you have a story to tell like Chris and Finah.

The Proposal
We were together only  for a little over a year before Chris proposed. I had my suspicions as he was being quite sneaky and I was sure he was going to propose on Valentines day! But, two weeks before Valentine’s Day of 2015, we went to have dinner at his mum’s house – […]

The Benefits of Winter Weddings & Indoor Ceremonies

When it comes to setting a date for your special day, most brides envision to pick a date where they can be assured to have the perfect weather. The reality is though, that if you live in Melbourne or plan to have your wedding there, then chances are that there is no guarantee that you will be blessed with the best weather on the day. This is why it’s important to look past the weather when choosing your wedding date, as you can still have the most beautiful, stylish, and elegant wedding day right in the very heart of winter.

For the recently betrothed who are still deciding on what date to choose, they will certainly find the advice from one of Melbourne’s most iconic and awesome celebrants, Russ Macumber most useful as he discusses the benefits of winter weddings and indoor ceremonies. He also goes into great detail to explain […]

A Desire For Wedding Hire

Let’s face it, times have certainly changed when it comes to the styling and decor for your wedding day.

At present, our Melbourne wedding venue hosts a completely different styled wedding every week, which is why we are fortunate enough to see the best wedding hire decor in Melbourne.

A Guide to Wonderful & Comfortable Bridal Shoes

At Vogue Ballroom, we are fortunate enough to come across a new pair of glistening wedding shoes every week, and if we’re lucky we may come across three pairs a week! When it comes to a bride selecting her desired pair of shoes for the big day some choose comfort, whilst some may choose the look and of course the brand name of the shoes. A new trend that we’ve seen among brides has been that they use two pairs of wedding shoes for the day. One pair is used for the morning video and photo pre-shoot, then by the time they’ve reached the reception some brides slip into a more comfier shoe for the night.

Here is a selection of some truly beautiful, as well as comfortable shoes fit for any bride on her wedding day:

These shoes are truly remarkable, and of course – there is enough bling on these shoes […]

Wedding Cakes That Make A Statement

At Vogue Ballroom, we are fortunate enough to see a variety of wedding cakes every week. If one things for sure, it is that no two cakes are ever the same. From elegant centerpieces, to real or sugared flowers, to even cakes that have towered over the bride and groom – we’ve truly seen it all! Depending on your budget, some bridegrooms choose to allow a small or generous costing for their wedding cake. Here are our some of the different and most beautiful cakes we’ve had the pleasure of serving at our venue:

The Wedding of Sofia & Edress

Apart from its height and delicate floral work, what really makes this cake is its stunning base and opulent white colouring. If you are choosing to accompany your cake with flowers, white is always a good choice of colour to show a balanced contrast.
