Today, UK Black Pride turns 15 and we thought that was something well worth celebrating. UK Black Pride provides a safe space for LGBTQ+ people of African, Asian, Caribbean, Middle Eastern and Latin American descent. Founded by Lady Phyll back in 2005, it has grown into a movement supporting and celebrating the LGBTQ community.
Surprise surprise! Nope, it’s not Cilla, it’s me, your Friday quiz Queen Becky. It seemed fitting that I put this post together for you today all about the ultimate wedding (and hen do) quiz, Mr & Mrs. Whether you’re a Mr & Mrs, a Mr & Mr, a Mrs & Mrs or anything in between, you can have great fun with this game that’s all about how well you know each other as a couple. Whether you play it at your wedding or on your respective hen do or stag do, it can be a lot of fun. So without further ado, here’s the ultimate list of Mr & Mrs questions.
Have you been looking into how you can nail comfort and style when it comes to your bridal shoes? Maybe you’ve tried taping your toes together (whaaaaat), perhaps you’ve tried those jelly cushion things, slathering vaseline on the heel maybe? I’m here to tell you that you don’t need to do any of those things. I know. Shocker right. If you get the right shoe in the first place you’ll be skipping from the aisle to midnight in total comfort. (Skipping, staggering. Same thing.)
I mean, it’s not a title anyone wants to write is it? But since we know that having a socially distanced wedding is a reality that our couples may face in the coming months… We want to help prepare you.
So, is it possible to have a wedding with restrictions still in place? Is it possible for your guests to adhere to the distancing rules? It is. Be prepared to approach it with an open mind and be willing to make some changes. But rest assured that although your vision for your day may change, that it will still be full of love, magic and cake. Or cheese, if that’s more your thing.
We have been sent lots of incredible elopements recently to share with you and it’s spurred us on to dedicate a post to elopements; how you can have one, what does it even mean and it’s an opportunity for us to re share some of our all time favourite eloping couples. As well as elopements we thought it was a good opportunity to touch on smaller gatherings in general especially as that is now becoming a consideration for lots of planning couples what with the ongoing government restrictions put in place because of COVID-19. We have enlisted the help of elopement enthusiast Emily Black Photography to answer your questions. You can find out more about Emily here on our recommended directory. Thanks so much for all your insights Emily.
Do not let lockdown hinder your celebrations. I repeat, do NOT let lockdown hinder your celebrations. Who is up for being virtually reunited with their best girls, playing some hilarious games and dancing until they fall asleep on their sofa? I see your hands up. Here we go…
What time are you getting married? Due to the recent (we won’t say strange or unprecedented times) surge in wedding postponements you might find that to secure a new date that you’re happy with you have had to accept an alternative time for your wedding. Perhaps you had originally planned for a 1pm ceremony but now you’re looking at an 11am or a 3:30pm ceremony instead. All of this culminating in the fact that you now need to plan for an alternative order of your wedding day.
You may have caught our Instagram Live where Charlotte and I talked through all the things we love about winter weddings. We also have a post on the same subject if you wanted to check that out. We know a lot of weddings have been postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak and that a lot of you are now planning an unexpected winter wedding. You were so close to your wedding date (be it an April or a July date) that you will have had almost everything sorted. Now that your spring or summer wedding has been postponed to autumn or winter we thought it would be really helpful for us to give you some tips on how you can make your spring wedding work in winter. Because it can work. Promise.
We have been inundated with requests to big up the winter weddings vibes. With Coronavirus meaning many spring postponements, a lot of you now find yourselves setting a new date for the winter months and are keen to know the benefits of having a winter wedding.
