So last week I talked about how hot the sixties trend is going to be this coming Autumn and Winter, from Mod influenced to the more sultry sixties-bombshell vibe. And it's the latter that's my muse for today. Dotty Daisy is her name, and she is THE sixties sex kitten, with her swept-up beehive, heavy kohled-eyes and sultry look.

But it wasn't all about the sex, this look also had a slight innocence to it too, which is why this sex-kitten is mixing it up with polka dots and daisies for an eclectic yet demure wedding style…

Look Book L-R:  1. Sarah Seven Elope Dress with polka dot netting 2. Tobi Hannah Youthquake Collection Amaze Dress 3. Ban-doHeadband 4. SINDY FUCHSIA POLKA DOT BOW PEEP TOE PLATFORM SANDAL - Topshop £80.00 5. White Daisy Applique Dress - Dorothy Perkins, Was £60 now £30

The look is most definitely all about the hair, big bouncy and tousled or loosely swept-up, complete with heavy-rimmed eyes and a nude lip.

As this is full-on sultry glamour I've chosen a more playful and youthful looking dress, well two actually as I couldn't choose between them. There's the Sarah Seven Elope Dress with a bustier top and polka dot netted skirt. For a much more demure take we have the Amaze Dress from Tobi Hannah's new Youthquake Collection, I featured another dress from them last week too as this designer really has the 60's vibe nailed with their latest collection….

Ban-do have a range of headbands like this oversized bow which will keep the look from straying too far into the just-got-out-of-bed-territory and keep the bride looking alluring with just a hint of sexy.  The pink peep-toe shoes from Topshop add a real playfulness to the outfit

For the bridesmaids this White Daisy Applique Dress from Dorothy Perkins would be a perfect balance to all those polka dots…

Details L-R: 1. Pink wellies and Daisies by By lucia and mapp 2.Cake by  Janet Mohapi-Banks photographed by Sugar & Spice Photography via Bijoux Bride  3.  Confetti Cards by Tokketok 4. Flowers Our Labor of Love via Style Me Pretty  5. Polka Dot Treat Bags by Shop Sweet Lulu 6. Bike & Daisies 7.  Pie Chart Pins by StudioFludd  8. Flowers Our Labor of Love via Style Me Pretty 9. Felt-fetti Confetti by benzie

The details here are an eclectic mix of polka dots and daisies, mixing up the two styles in a palette of pale cream, yellows and bright pink for splashes of colour.

The daisies can be loosely arranged in a variety of retro, vintage glass bottles and dotted around your venue.   If you have a talented cake-maker you can ask them to replicate the delicate daisy petals of your bouquet across your cake, like this one by Janet Mohapi-Banks.

I love the idea of confetti, in fact just the word gets me excited so when I found these confetti cards I was super-excited, check-out Tokketok for more like them. As well as the cards you can also get this felt confetti from benzie, love it.
