RYCHELLE – LOVESTONED
Today we have interviewed that beautiful Rychelle from LOVESTONED Bridal. Recently we had the pleasure of collaborating with this wonderful woman for her very first styled bridal shoot. One Day was blown away by her passion, professionalism and her devotion and love for what she does. So what better person to be inspired by than someone who takes inspiration to the highest of heights.
IF YOU COULD DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN, RECREATE YOUR WEDDING, WHAT WOULD YOU CHANGE? Or IF YOUR NOT MARRIED, TELL US ABOUT THE BEST WEDDING YOU HAVE EVER BEEN TO AND WHY…
Oh I can’t even imagine what my wedding would be like. After all I think my instagram trumps over my future wedding. However I am in the process of helping style and set up a wedding for a dear friend. Lets just say the theme is, floral dripped in gold….. does that not just set the tone for how magically epic it is going to be before it has even begun. A 2 day event, located in the southern highlands, a drop dead gorgeous bride, marrying a pilot, gold sequins, an endless amount of florals…. Can it get much better, I guess ill have to wait and see and keep you updated.
THE DRESS, WHAT WOULD YOU WANT TO WEAR RIGHT NOW?
That’s like asking to choose which child you love more!!!! Ahhh the pressure.
ELIE SAAB…. He can legit do no wrong, that man is a gift from god!!!
IN THREE WORDS DESCRIBE YOUR WEDDING STYLE.

TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT HOW YOU BECAME INVOLVED IN YOUR INDUSTRY…
As the young ones fall in love so quickly these days… so many friends all got engaged at once, and we had the kitchen teas, bridal showers, I started to look into buying some bridal magazines (mind you this was only 2 yrs ago, I have never been the girl growing up dreaming and planning that dream day) But once I started looking I just fell in love with the so many different styles and approaches couples were taking when styling their wedding or dressing for the day.
So what do you do when you then have an endless amount of images, start an instagram of course…. It was purely just as my own personal source of inspo, but within months, the followers kept growing and girls were asking who the dress was by, the flowers, the venue etc.
So I decided to make it a small side hobby, to blog everything I love and adore in the fashion bridal world, and guide others to the vendors that took my breath away. The rest is now history, and I am looking into making LOVESTONEDbridal a go to wedding agent/directory to assist in guiding brides to the vendors of their DREAMS…..
WHERE DO YOU DRAW YOUR INSPIRATION FROM?
Pinterest is a MAJOR source…. I find it is constantly on trend, as so many blogs have the pin it button and as soon as they have posted their newest wedding feature, runway show, a designer collection, or a jaw dropping photo shoot, that’s were you can find it.
Also instagram – being able to follow other designers and bloggers and florists, you see what is happening now.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE SOCIAL MEDIA PAGES?
TheLane – those girls and Karissa can do no wrong

YOUR WORDS OF ADVICE FOR ANY FUTURE BRIDE.
Stay true to what you love.
When it comes down to it, its your wedding, you’re the one wearing the gown, choose the dress that you fall in love with every single time you see it, that you feel, makes you more beautiful then you already are and that you cant, for the first time fault one thing wrong about yourself in it.
The styling, the theme, the venue- again make sure its what you and your man want, not the mother in law to be, or the aunty that think she knows what you want. The day is all about you two. You will be the ones looking back at the photos and reliving everything you loved about it.
As weddings can be costly, I think you and your man should choose each what you think the most important aspect of the day will be. To some it’s the venue, to others it’s the photographer (as sometimes they can make a magical day look even more magical and can capture every second moment) OR if it’s the dress, then it’s the dress. Your man will want as much as you do, for you to be the queen of the day. Put attention into the detail you want the most, and then make up a costing plan, it will save time and indecisive moments in the lead up to the day.
Enjoy it. Don’t rush it. It doesn’t have to be stressful. Involve your man. And over the time of planning the wedding and being engaged, fall in love every day that bit more.
