I Wanna Be Adorned.

Etsy-Quote-Header

Not so long back I was lucky enough to be invited to a wonderful lunch hosted by the lovely folk at Etsy UK in order to celebrate the brand and talk to some of the talented suppliers who sell their products on the site.

For those of you not au fait with Etsy, I recommend that you get yourselves acquainted with this awesome site quick sharp. Essentially though it’s a site where you can buy (and sell) all things handmade and it is particularly handy for those of you planning a big event like say a wedding for example. That’ll be most of you lot reading this then….

From a personal perspective I could wax lyrical all day long about the delights of Etsy. I’ve bought everything there; from bespoke paper napkins (complete with an oak tree and both my own and the boy’s initials) for our engagement party, ironic and satirical prints which I’ve framed in their tens for the new house, cute cuddlies for newborns, cards for all manner of occasions, decor for hen dos, Christmas decs and even the odd fancy dress accessory.

In fact I love the whole Etsy buying process from start to finish – it’s simple to buy, easy to communicate with sellers and then doubly wonderful to receive deliciously wrapped items in the post from all over the world. And they are wrapped with such care and such love that opening the goodies themselves is just as much as a treat as the actual product inside is.… View the full post.

The Weekly Round-up: 14.09.14

weekly-roundup

Blimey! Is it Sunday already? Hasn’t time flown this week! If you’re anything like me then I’m guessing that you’ve just popped onto the net for a quick surf whilst your roast dinner bubbles away in the oven.

Well you’re in luck; we’re back again with this week’s round up of all that’s been great and glorious on Rock My Wedding during the last seven days. It’s actually been incredibly difficult to pick the best of the best given the amount of gorgeous weddings and delicious inspiration that has appeared on the blog lately but we’ve managed to select our favourites…

This week marked the first of our Beauty DIY series that we’ll be sharing with you over the coming months. A wonderful collaboration between photographer extraordinaire Rebekah J.Murray, make-up genius Jodie Hazlewood and the team at Rock My Wedding we kicked things off with a Bright And Bold Lips DIY that sent many of you running to the nearest make-up counters to recreate the look.

Lips-header

Talking of colour pop beauty did you see the amazing wedding of Chess and John this week photographed by the wonderful Dale Weeks. They decided against wedding ‘rules’ and ‘themes’ opting for a whole bunch of colour and love instead.

Honestly I couldn’t get enough of this wonderful wedding with the largest rainbow bouquet I’ve ever seen, an actual Maypole that guests danced around and a splattering of epic bearded action; you need to check it out.

Chess and John’s wedding wasn’t the only big day to feature a heap of cool hipster guests.… View the full post.

Pretty New Blues From The Wedding Garter Co.

weddinggarterco

At RMW we love the romance and nostalgia evoked by garters, and pretty shades of blue always make us swoon – so we’re really excited to share with you the new lavender and cornflower blue garters from The Wedding Garter Co.

Just like all of the garters from The Wedding Garter Co, each of the new collection is hand cut and sewn and crafted from the finest tulle, silk, velvet or lace. They truly are heirloom pieces and the new blue collection means that you can invest in a ‘something blue’ which can be passed on to future Brides in your family…which I think is such a lovely thought.

To celebrate the new colours, use the code ‘RMWblue’ at the checkout and the first 10 customers will get ​15% off the new collection of blue wedding garters (only until the end of the weekend though so be quick!)

If you’re in the South West of England, you can buy in-store too by visiting The Wedding Garter Co. in their new garter boutique.

The shop looks beautiful and I’ll definitely be popping in next time I’m in the area. So go on…treat yourself to a really special ‘something blue’ and if anyone questions you – tell them RMW said you could ;)

Wedding Day Drinks with Cin Cin.

cincinfeature

This afternoon we’re handing the blog over to awesome Love Lust List members Cin Cin. If you haven’t come across Cin Cin before, they are based in the South East and offer a mobile Italian catering service to weddings and events, serving bubbles & nibbles from their super cute vintage Fiat van.

Being connoisseurs of good food and wine, we’ve asked them to create an awesome guide to selecting and ordering drinks for your big day – as well as advice on taste combinations and different options for every budget. Cin Cin have also included some really useful information on how to order alcohol in bulk for your wedding day.

If your choice of wedding venue means that you are in charge of ordering drinks for your big day, you really will find this guide useful and if there is anything else you’d like to ask please leave us a comment.

Cin Cin are also hosting their first ever supper club in Brighton this Thursday 11th September. The Autumn Feast menu will feature signature Cin Cin antipasti and Prosecco, followed by a three course Italian feast prepared by top chef Jamie Halsall.

My mouth is watering after reading the menu…honey glazed figs with goat’s cheese & late summer truffle…heirloom tomatoes & burrata served with fresh basil and sherry vinaigrette…roasted damsons with zabaglione and crushed amoretti biscuits…YUM.

For more details and to purchase tickets, see here and for their guide to matching wines & cocktails to food & canapés read on…
