Our final (and I’m guessing favourite for many of you) Dolly……. Madam Daydream. And as much as we can turn our hand to the Rock Star/Pop Star styling I think this is where Rock My Wedding excels – the PRETTY.
There’s no denying that this look has some gorgeous gowns but actually, what we really wanted to show you guys is how to accessorise on a teeny tiny budget. We realise not everyone has a W-day money tree growing in their back yard ( oh and if you do can we come over for tea?) and more often than not the “finishing touches” get left until well, exactly then……the finish. The point at which Mr bank account is flashing an angry shade of red and shouting at your subconscious NOT. TO. BUY. ANY. MORE. JEWELLERY.
Or maybe that’s just what happens to me.
Not just for rockers the William Chambers Camillia headpiece also comes in this more traditionally bridal shade of creamy ivory, perfect if the thought of real blooms in amongst your tresses doesn’t appeal.
The dramatically precious earrings from Glitzy Secrets are exactly the right mix of relaxed romanticism, a steal at £32.00 and the colour-pop coral bracelet is even more bargainous at just £3.00 from New Look.
Let’s talk knitwear. Cute yellow cardigan type knitwear. Perfection for the Spring bride who may want a little bit of a cover up to keep out the chill of the evening air or just to update her W-day look from day to night.… View the full post.
The first thing I thought when I saw photographer Rhian Askins submission of Matt and Debs W-day was how incredibly sweet it was. Rhian has captured some really special moments, from Matt’s “Groom anticipation” image to the “I’m going to squish his head” kiss montage of a pair of cute younger guests.
Not to mention the fact that Debs looks beautiful, a vision in lace and sexy suede shoes. Oh and her eyes – check out how blue they are…..gorgeousness.
And you know how much we love a bit of D.I.Y decor right? Well then, there’s plenty of make-it-pretty to inspire too.
Suede And Sparkle
My headdress was from Jenny Packham, who creates some gorgeous pieces. The one I chose was the Acacia II, which looked amazing. I also wore a very pretty pearl bracelet from Glitzy secrets, a fab website full of vintage style jewellery.
My shoes were a gorgeous ballroom style shoes from Rachel Simpson. I always try and add a splash of colour to whatever I wear so set my heart on a cute blue pair.
I looked at a number of dresses but kept going back to a gorgeous lace dress by Art Couture. The dress had an old fashioned, elegant feel, which fitted in with our vintage theme.
I don’t even know where to start folks.
Laura and Dave’s rustic wedding reception at “The Old Barn” in Brandgore is so unbelievably personal and inspirational, with so many unique and clever idea’s that I can’t begin to point out everything that I love about it. The escort card plan, the giant cake, the original and abundant guest entertainment, the sweetie bar…..oh my goodness the sweetie bar, by far the loveliest I have ever seen in the whole of weddingville.
Just the kind of joyous Big Day that I would give my right arm to be invited to….
The centrepieces were designed to reflect the rustic theme and to fit into the silver birch wrap vases that my husband and I had made. They had similar blooms.
I came across an unusual flower that I had never heard of before called ‘Craspedia’ or Billy Buttons and was so taken by them, that I decided I had to have them! I chose to use them mainly for the buttonholes, as they are not overtly blousy or feminine and I thought they would go with the boy’s outfits.
THE Sweetie Bar
I loved the idea of a candy buffet but wanted something different, preferably that would excite our guests. Again, I spent hours researching, but couldn’t find anything that was right, so we decided to make our own unit. The result- a huge dresser with 21 drawers, glass jars and lots and lots of colour co-ordinated sweets!… View the full post.
As you can imagine we receive a lot of real wedding submissions here at RMW HQ and my absolute favourite supplier submitted kind are when the sender ( particularly the photographer…..) seem genuinely genuinely thrilled about the Big Day they want featured and supply us with the reasons behind why they think Rock My Wedding is the perfect place to be showcased.
David and Teri from Murakami Photography are the perfect example and I was immediately taken with their infectious excitement and how much they were completely and utterly in love with the Autumn soiree of Laura and Dave that they captured beautifully in October last year.
Not only does the affair have a whole heap of pretty with a delicious citrus colour palette and gorgeous show stopping fashion but every little piece of decor and I mean EVERY last piece was designed, put together and made by the Bride and Groom and their family.
This is Do it Your Way and Do It YOURSELF Your Way to the max lovelies.
The Right Investment
I spent hours and hours researching which blooms: I even took a floristry course to help determine my decision!
For the bouquets, I decided that I wanted specific David Austin roses in gorgeous apricot and cream (‘Juliet‘ and ‘Patience‘). With those, I wanted a small amount of yellow roses to pick up the overall theme and camomile or September flower for the yellow centres. My vision for the bouquets were rustic country garden. My florist, Sarah at Flowers at 166 in Charminster must have been demented with me as I kept adding or changing things until I had it exactly right, but she did a great job.… View the full post.
