SAJA Wedding Collection

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013

Now that I have you up to speed with all that’s new at The Bridal Lounge I am so incredibly excited to announce that I have just become Europe’s first stockist of SAJA Wedding dresses. The addition of wedding dresses to The Bridal Lounge is something completely new for me but I have loved SAJA for so many years that it feels completely right to take this next step. My love affair with SAJA started nearly 7 years ago on a trip to Chicago when I fell in love with a gorgeous emerald green dress in Anthropologie for my friends wedding. Ever since then I have followed the brand and admired their dresses from afar. Today I am so proud to be a stockist and to bring these dresses to Ireland (and Europe) for brides to start their own love affair with them!

SAJA was founded in 2000 by designer Yoo Lee who has successfully created a brand that is best known and loved for it’s beautiful collection of non-traditional wedding and bridesmaid gowns. SAJA dresses are simple yet elegant and both gracefully ethereal and timeless. SAJA offers modern brides designers gowns at an affordable price.

Let it snow…

Monday, December 5th, 2011

… let it snow, let it snow….! Well apparently it sprinkled some snowy dust in certain parts of the country last night – we didn’t see any where we are, but the reports definitely has us convinced that Christmas is really just around the corner!! So we found the perfect Snowy Monday DIY for you all…. SNOWGLOBES!! These absolute stunners are from Anthropologies 2009 Winter Catalogue where they filled their globes with mini-vintage Santas, antique jewellery and other lovelinesses. Fortunately for us we found a super easy DIY project by Well-Worn, to guide us through making our own! We think they would be fantastic decorations for winter weddings : Fill the jars with you and your fiancé / finacéé’s initials, or charms that mean something to you, or use large jars and put your table numbers in them!! Lots of festively fabulous ideas! Now back to work – and here’s the How-to… Enjoy, Aoife & Deirdre xx

You Will Need :

- A jar of your choice – with a lid

- Figurines or jewellery ( or whatever you want to be inside your globe )

- Anti-rust sealant for items that are metal or liable to rust

- Clear-drying epoxy

- Distilled water

- Dash of glycerine

- Large white or silver glitter – NB: the smaller type floats at the top

Steps :

1. Use clear-drying epoxy to adhere your piece to the inside of the lid. Let dry per instructions.

2. After the epoxy dries completely, fill your jar with distilled or boiled water (cooled to room temperature!)

3. Add just a dash of glycerine so the ‘snow’ falls slowly.

4. Add as much glitter as you like. If you don’t like the look of glitter, you can usually find faux snow at craft and haberdashery stores.

5. Screw your lid on tightly and enjoy your snow globe!!
