Hey girl…

hey girl header Hey girl...

If you saw our ‘Bare Faced Bribery‘ post not so long back then you’ll already be aware that we may have accidentally on purpose used the charms of a certain Mr Gosling to persuade you to vote for us in the Cosmpolitan Blog Awards 2014.

Did it work? Well we’re not so sure of that just yet because the votes are still flooding in from all corners of the UK until the closing date on 29th August. This week we thought we’d try our luck again with the male charms of a certain somebody a little bit closer to home…

adam hey girl Hey girl...

Yes, because if ol’ Gosling wasn’t quite your cup of tea then we’re hoping that our very own Mr Crohill will do the trick for you instead. That and obviously we’d love you to vote for Rock My Wedding because you think we are the bestest wedding blog in the whole of the United Kingdom.

So what do you think? Ready to give the voting thing a whirl? We’d be ever so ever so grateful…

Here’s what you need to do.

First click on this link.

Whizz through to page 8 for the Best Wedding Blog category (or if you have time stop on page 6 first and vote for our sister blog Rock My Style in the category Best Lifestyle Blog).

Mark Rock My Wedding.

Finally click through to page 15 and submit.

And that’s it!

Thank you so much in advance for taking the time to vote!!!

The Ultimate Handmade Wedding.

eleanorandben The Ultimate Handmade Wedding.

Eleanor and Ben’s big day is so full with amazing DIY projects that I really don’t know where to begin! Aside from building their own venues…I’m not sure they could have created anything else themselves for their wedding.

The table plan is my personal favourite project – it’s such a simple idea to thread strings from a hole next to a name, into a hole next to a table number – but it looks so cool and contemporary and I bet they’ll be lots of Brides thinking ‘I wish I’d thought of that!’

Not only was all of the decor made by this creative pair, but Eleanor’s dress and veil were made for her by a friend too. This resulted in a beautifully fitting dress, made from a heavy pure silk in a golden mushroom colour, with lace over the top and crystal band. And it’s absolutely perfect for her! I love the addition of the red Swarovski crystal button on the back too.

Enjoy all of the detail, this really is a wedding full of colour and fun…and some seriously amazing images of the wedding party dancing flash mob style…

Summer & Robin: The Distracting Yet Useful Uncle.

summerandrobin3 Summer & Robin: The Distracting Yet Useful Uncle.

The past month and a half has been crazy busy. Sadly not with wedding planning but with a whole bunch of other stuff. Most of which was tons of fun just not incredibly productive!

My uncle Duane came to visit, all the way from Mississippi and we thoroughly wore ourselves out playing tourist…he promised that him and his wife (hi Paige!) would be coming back next summer for our wedding, yay!)

They own a catering business and actually make all those crazy delicious looking American style wedding buffet tables. Oyster bars, fruit platters, incredible candy stations…swoon. They did say ‘if they could’ they would love to cater our wedding. So obviously I’m expecting them to hire a private jet and do their first transatlantic wedding next summer. Haha joking, not joking.

The Most Perfect G&T.

Georgie Tim The Most Perfect G&T.

Nope. It’s not gin and tonics for us this morning but rather the delicious wedding of Georgie and Tim which is equally as refreshing and will make you just as giddy as if you’d consumed ten of the aforementioned beverages.

This morning’s wedding is a corker and I’m more than a little bit smug to be sharing it with you. If you’re a sucker for a bespoke cocktail bar then this one is for you. If you love romantic veils and beautiful couture wedding gowns then I can say hand on heart you’ll lust after this. And if you go weak at the knees over elegant bridesmaids in uber chic hot pink skirt and top combos then you better go and get yourself a chair.

And I haven’t even mentioned the awesome stationery or the chocolate and strawberry tiered cake or the bird emblazoned table plan nor the blossom at each guest’s table setting.

I’m telling you folks this big day is going to be pinned to within an INCH of its life.

Vintage And Piñatas At Mindaribba House.

Jackie and Craig Vintage And Piñatas At Mindaribba House.

Oh Jackie and Craig you really do know how to throw an awesome wedding don’t you.

A party full of delicious handpicked blooms and floral bow tied ushers and lace shoes and actual wedding cake shaped piñatas. Well actually it’s just the one piñata but it’s so immense and so humongous that there very well could be more of them and we mean that in a totally good way!

Jackie’s Claire Pettibone gown is bound to induce a case of mass envy amongst our Rock My Wedding community too with its delicate capped sleeves and embroidered back detailing which she pairs so elegantly with the most wonderfully dainty headpiece. I think I actually need that headpiece in my life it is that beautiful.

Lastly the ‘guest’ DJ slots idea is pretty blinking fantastic too and I think more weddings should employ the idea. I’ll leave Jackie to tell you more about it!

Investing In The Perfect Smile For W-Day

Cover Image quote2 Investing In The Perfect Smile For W Day

For those of you that have no idea who I am then Hello, I’m Charlotte – the founder of Rock My Wedding *waves*. It occurred to me recently that the best thing I invested in for my big day bar the photography was in fact my….teeth.

I wore braces for just over twelve months prior to walking down the aisle and it was well worth the slight discomfort and flashes of shiny metal bestowed on anyone I spoke to or laughed with in that one year period.

I’ve written about my experience on our lifestyle site Rock My Style so thought I’d mention it here in case you had ever considered wearing braces in adulthood in order to achieve the perfect smile for W-day. Just follow this link.

A Floral Frenzy.

floral A Floral Frenzy.

Now I don’t know about you, but I feel like summer is on it’s way out. Early mornings have a slightly chill in the air, the nights are definitely starting to draw in and I’m already hankering after a piping hot Baileys Hot Chocolate…

Yesterday we even announced the winner of our Autumn Pinterest competition and as much as I love snuggly knits, knee high boots and crunchy leaves I’m DEFINITELY not quite ready to let go of the sunshine and all of the light and vibrant colour it brings. It’s still August for goodness’ sake!!

So with that in mind…today I’m delving into a world of floral print. Versatile and oh so summery – I refuse to believe that there isn’t a floral print out there for everyone! And I’m hoping today you’ll see something you love. Whether whimsical, vintage or bold – floral print provides endless pretty possibilities…

Are you ready to join me in Autumn denial??

I Can See A Rainbow.

Cover Image2 I Can See A Rainbow.

If you are undecided on a colour scheme then why not have a bit of everything like Hannah and Nick? I’m a fan of mis-matched bridesmaids and this way all of your best girls can choose a shade to suit. Incorporating all the colours of the rainbow also means you can go to town with your bouquet and Hannah’s is particularly pretty.

I also enjoyed reading about the food aspect, as a guest I would definitely be impressed by spiced barbecued joints of lamb…..and the cake of course.

Now then, if I was to choose a shade for myself to wear I think it would be the coral. Or maybe the yellow? Hmm….perhaps the green?

Happy Tuesday lovelies.
