What’s Inside The Rock My Wedding Book…

If you’re looking for a book to assist you with wedding planning, or perhaps a gift for a newly engaged friend, then our book, Your Day Your Way, is the perfect thing. As with anything from the RMW team, it’s brimming with gorgeous imagery and styling BUT it’s also full of really helpful checklists and wedding planning questions to help guide you through the wedding planning process seamlessly.

Your Day Your Way is written by our founder, Charlotte O’Shea, who not only knows a thing or two about weddings, but tells it like it is too. RMW was built on Charlotte blogging about her own wedding planning journey, and the book is very much in her own inimitable voice. For those of you yet to discover the book, here’s a peak inside…

Wedding Cake {How Much Cake Do I Need To Feed My Guests?} Pin Image

Wedding Cake {How Much Cake Do I Need To Feed My Guests?}

When it comes to wedding cake, we are definitely in the camp that it’s a wedding tradition to firmly uphold. After all, a party without a cake is just a meeting and the same is true of weddings so I’ve heard 😉

If you’ve never fed cake to hundreds of people before, it can be really confusing trying to work out exactly how much you need to feed your guests. Whether you’re ordering a cake from the supermarket, or having one made for you by a fabulous cake maker, no one wants to have too much or even worse, too little!

So we’ve put together this guide to help you work out just how much cake you need to order, what kind of icing you’d like to chose from and some ideas as to how your cake could look. But remember, whether it’s bright and bold, or soft and pastel, covered in icing or stripped back to show off the squishy sponge, the most important thing is that it tastes delicious!

Stylish Wedding in Tuscany at Vignamaggio with Vintage Ape Bar

If this doesn’t make you want to book a destination wedding in Tuscany immediately, I don’t know what will. The views are to die for and wedding venue Vignamaggio is the ultimate setting amongst all the beauty. Emma & Jake compliment it beautifully with simple but stunning white and green flowers, and the most stylish wedding stationery and signs. Not to mention an adorable vintage ape bar.

Bride Emma is a vision of beauty in a lace Pronovias gown & veil bought lovingly by her Nan, and Jake looks dapper in a light blue linen suit from Suit Supply. Talk about couple goals.

After you’ve swooned over the images by Samuel Docker, I strongly urge you to sit back relax and watch the heartfelt film by Paul Van too. Warning you may end up crying in your cornflakes (other breakfasts are available!).
