Afternoon folks! And we’re back to earth with a bump after the glorious weekend. Yep it’s Monday but have no fear, we have a whole heap of pretty up our sleeves for you to indulge in this afternoon.
If you stopped by the blog last week then you’ll have seen our Midsummer Night’s Dream inspired extravaganza and this week we’re back with another dose of inspiration for you – namely Peaches And Cream.
Honestly it looks good enough to eat!
Having been shoved to the back of the inspiration cupboard for so long, it’s no secret that Team RMW are huge fans of the peach colour scheme wedding. Perhaps it’s because it’s such a pretty shade or maybe it’s because it’s such an adaptable and flattering hue for all seasons of the year, either way we just can’t get enough of it.
And so as a way of paying homage to the ‘Peach’ wedding, we’ve decided to dedicate this afternoon to it by way of a whole heap of delicious decor, beautiful bouquets and decadent dresses moodboard inspiration.
I hope you like it…
Now I have to be honest here and tell you that green is not my favourite colour. It has just never appealed to me in the same way as gorgeous shades of blue and grey. But having seen this shoot – I have to say that I now see green in a whole new light!!
The sheer number of different shades of green on show here is unbelievable…the vibrant and fresh apple green, the muted and slightly grey sage green, the richness of ivy green and the yellowness of the young budding flowers. All created by nature. Amazing.
I mean just look at that table scape below…it’s like a glimpse into a hidden tropical garden of Eden!
I love the idea behind the shoot too – just because you are getting married in a rustic venue, doesn’t mean that you have to compromise on the glamour!
Every so often I like to share a moodboard or two with you lovelies. In the past these glorious concoctions of delicious images, carefully curated from my favourite blogs and sites, were a far more regular occurrence but I confess I’ve probably been a bit remiss of late in sharing such inspiration with you.
This makes me sad. I have been a bad blogger. But I’m determined to redress the balance over the coming weeks and set about on my mission to inspire and invigorate you beauties once more starting with this Midsummer Night’s Dream affair this afternoon.
This post is a bit of a departure from my usual inspiration posts however. Because I’ll readily admit that as nice as it is to see the most wonderfully composed images slotted perfectly into a neat and tidy moodboard there’s always a part of me that scratches my head and wonders where I’ll be able to source that elegant vase or those calligraphed place names or even that elaborate headdress.
Have you ever felt like that?
The lightening bolt feeling when your eyes land upon the most perfect cushion/desk/pair of sparkly shoes on paper yet you cannot for the life of you find a source for the god damn things and google won’t play ball either.
Well far be it from us to add to your daily frustrations. This post will provide you with a link to each and every item that appears below should you take a shine to one thing or another.… View the full post.
It’s Monday afternoon and that can only mean one thing folks…yep you guessed it. Another healthy dose of wedding D.I.Y magic. I don’t know about you but there’s something infinitely calming about sitting down and making something pretty from scratch.
Speaking of creating glorious and pretty things, as you read this, the RMW team is currently shooting their next piece of editorial on location (hopefully with the sunshine blazing I might add) – we’re beyond excited to share it with you. In the meantime if you want some sneaky peeks or a laugh at Mr Crohill up some ladders then it’s worth checking our instagram feed for some behind the scenes action as the day progresses.
Anyway I digress, back to the post in hand…
As you’ve probably guessed, this afternoon we’ll be showing you how to create a DIY flag topper your cake can be proud of.
Shall we get on with then…
Afternoon folks! And how are you after that damn fine piece of weather yesterday? Rested? Perhaps slightly sunburnt? Or are you feeling slightly despondent with a case of the Monday blues?
Allow me to attempt to cheer you up with another glorious glitzy DIY project for your big day as a way of whiling away the hours until the going home bell rings. It’s probably the easiest D.I.Y project we’ve ever posted on Rock My Wedding…aside from the Glitterific Table Numbers that is.
Hell to the yes! It’s time to get your glitter on!
Afternoon lovely people.
So how was your weekend? Did you tick any items off the wedmin list?
Perhaps you selected your wedding day blooms or decided the theme for your reception decor? If you are anything like I was when I planned my own big day then you’ve probably experienced a miniature meltdown at some point about all the things you’ve still got to do before the big day arrives and panicked ever so slightly at just how much everything costs…
Sound familiar? Well have no fear, if you’re still unsure about how best to ‘number’ your tables from a decor perspective then we have a completely budget friendly but oh so fun DIY project for you this afternoon.
Actually it’s quite possibly the easiest D.I.Y project we’ve ever posted on Rock My Wedding…
Let’s get crafting!
This lunchtime we are introducing you to Pumpkin Events, an award winning, bespoke venue styling company specialising in design and decoration. Renowned for stylish design, they offer the ultimate transformation for weddings, corporate events, private parties and much more.
Pumpkin Events are based in the West Midlands, but are happy to work at weddings & events across the UK.
Voted the Best Venue & Styling Company in the West Midlands 2014 at the Wedding Industry Awards, the Pumpkin Events team, led by Abigail Cunningham, will happily help with styling your big day.
We are revisiting this simple and effective DIY compact disc cover and packaging as it has proved to be one of our most popular DIY downloads of all time… But there must be so many of you newer brides to be who have not yet seen it… SO here it is…
Music is such a big part of your wedding day, and many of you are spending more and more time deciding what live music you’ll have, and also what your wedding playlist will be.
It’s common now to ask your guests for suggestions for the playlist on your Save The Dates. It’s a great idea as it makes your guests feel like part of the celebration from the word go and it helps to ensure a jam packed dance floor on the big day its self.
A nice touch for your favours would be to give guests a selection of tunes from your playlist on a home made mix cd… so why not build the whole thing into your table decor?
Today I am going to show you how to make place settings that double as a cd holder and all you need is one sheet of A4 paper for each place setting… you don’t even need a pair of scissors!
Here Is One I made Earlier…
First of all, to make life super easy for you lovely people, I have popped together a Word template for you to download (we love a free download at RMW). In the document you can see where all the text needs to be in order for it to all fold up correctly.… View the full post.
Have you ever had one of those days when you feel like writing everything in capitals? Not because you’re angry or because you want to make a point but because you’re EXCITED.
Today is one of those days. Don’t ask me why…
Perhaps it’s because I’m relishing the bright mornings and the longer evenings (yes even on this grey drizzly Monday). Maybe it’s because the plethora of colour pop and heavily fragranced blooms that stretch as far as the eye can see along country lanes and in green front gardens make me very happy indeed. Or actually (and far more realistically) it’s because the long Easter weekend is on its way with its promise of a chocolate overload or two…
What better then than to share a smidgen of inspiration with you dolls this afternoon inspired by Spring lambs, snuffle-nosed bunnies and Easter chicklets in homage to this frankly awesome time of year. Perhaps it will inspire you in your own wedding decor planning or maybe even provide a few ideas on how to style your Easter lunch…
You can’t fail to have noticed that today is Saint Patrick’s Day. Yes the day where we traditionally celebrate all things Irish… leprechauns and Guinness and shamrocks and soda bread and celtic knots and all things green with bucketloads of revelry and a healthy amount of drink.
It seemed only fitting then to pay homage and create a moodboard inspired by…yep you guessed it…all things of the mint and emerald and granny smith apple variety. That’s green in case you hadn’t guessed already…
We have everything you could possibly dream of in order to integrate this invigorating colour into your big day – from racing car green bouquets to beryl coloured maids dresses and mossy hued cakes.
Honestly you can’t go far wrong. What is it they say about the luck of the Irish…?
