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.
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
Whatever you are doing this Tuesday afternoon – you need to stop for 10 minutes and have a look at this divine inspiration shoot.
The bridal pretty comes courtesy of Miss Gen Photography and it literally has us weak at the knees…the bed-head hair, the just-been-kissed red lips, the soft drape of georgette and the voluptuousness of satin, gauzy veils edged with vintage lace, delicate and ornate wax headpieces…honestly, I’m bursting with excitement for you to see it!
The shoot draws inspiration from fairytales – two fair maidens trapped in a tower, waiting to be rescued by their true loves. And like any good fairy tale heroines, these two are in elegant gowns, with bespoke accessories and surrounded by bountiful blooms.
Exactly how I’d like to be on my wedding day!
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.
With the weather being so beautiful, this afternoon we’re turning our attention to outfits for summer occasions – be it a garden party, a pool party, a trip out on the river, a glamorous beachside bar – our Fashion Pack members have got it covered. Actually, that doesn’t really do it justice…they’ve got it covered with style!
So, let us know if any of the designers have picked things you love, if you’ve been tempted to purchase anything…and if you’ve got any great recommendations for the perfect outfit for a summery celebration then do let us know – the RMW team don’t need much encouragement to shop!
If you are looking for a very special something blue, or if you are looking for something to remember your wedding day by, or perhaps even something to pass on to your daughter on her wedding day – then the new range of lace garters from The Wedding Garter Co. is definitely for you.
Hand made in lace sourced from a long-standing family of lace makers, with every pattern hand drawn and every bead sewn on by hand, these lace garters really are something to treasure forever.
And not only that, but they are made in The Wedding Garter Co.’s ancient workshop just outside the beautiful town of Bath, England.
Achingly pretty and so feminine, they really are the final piece of any Bridal outfit. Even if the only person who gets to see it is your Groom.
So I know it’s May, not February…but Valentines Day is a day that celebrates love and romance, as does a wedding…
So when we received this pretty shoot from photographer, Eva Sanders, we just knew we had to share it with you. Albeit a few months past February 14th.
The inspiration shoot features the gorgeous new collection from Corrine Smith, a Scottish designer who makes all of her pieces by hand.
Decadence celebrates 10 years of business for Corrine and is a truly stunning collection. I’m in love with the Magda headpiece, with a crystal and pearl detail and delicately draping gold chain.
I love the styling of this shoot too – elegant in it’s simplicity, light bright and airy, but with warmth from the muted tones AND a sense of fun from the colour pop make-up and the floating paper hearts.
There’s also a bouquet that will make you go weak at the knees and see carnations in a whole new light…just look at this image below…
Despite the glimmer of Spring we’ve seen over the last few weeks, it would seem that Winter isn’t quite ready to disappear just yet…
We’ve got a gorgeous inspiration shoot this afternoon that will actually make you sad that Winter is on it’s way out. Seriously – I’m a sun worshipper through and through, but the thought of a crackling log fire always makes me hanker after the colder half of the year.
I’m particularly loving the strong make up looks created by Jodie Hazlewood and now have a very strong urge to reach for the glitter, put on my best frock and sit in a large window looking out over my grounds…
Obviously with a sparkly headpiece from Debbie Carlisle in my hair.
So let’s light some candles, get snuggled up in front of the fire and make the most of the final throws of Winter.
