bridalNEXT! 2016 - The Rock n Roll Bride Award

Established in 2012, bridalNEXT! is an initiative set up by Most Curious to support and promote fresh, fashion-led, new and innovative talent in the bridal industry. Not only launching them into the spotlight, we are also bringing them straight to the creative, stylish and cool loving brides and grooms.
AND A SELECT FEW WILL BE RECEIVING THE 2016 ROCK ‘N ROLL BRIDE AWARD! (here's VELVET JOHNSTONE receiving her award for winning the BRIDAL WEAR Category last year).

To propel our bridalNEXT!ers firmly into the spotlight, there will be a special Rock 'n Roll Bride Award, given for possessing big-time innovation and directional qualities, chosen by the candy hair coloured, expressive wedding queen herself Kat Williams, founder of the internationally famous and respected Rock 'n Roll Bride blog and magazine. There are two categories, BRIDAL WEAR and SERVICES, and a winner and runner up in each.

Who is she gonna chose?

Plus a t-shirt range with slogans like #bridesquad and #bridezilla!
