Timeless Wedding Gifts From Robert Welch

I love a spot of kitchen chat and could spend hours browsing for new additions. I’m even the sad person that got excited when I received a new set of Robert Welch kitchen knives for Mother’s Day this year. Yep, my five year old daughter presented me with some carefully wrapped (and packaged I might add) knives. I feel Daddy may have got involved with the shopping. Anyway, I digress.

My love of all things home meant that putting together our gift list was a bit of a dream. Who doesn’t love choosing all manner of gorgeousness to adorn your house? There are pieces that you know you will love and use endlessly and that will be constant reminders of the person who kindly gifted them to you. It might be some delicate glassware, a pretty candlestick or some practical saucepans but each and every one should be something you love.

The Secrets Behind the World’s Most Exclusive Wedding Band

If you ask any of the Rock My Wedding Team what makes a great wedding one of the main answers will be the party and with that comes the music. I cannot tell you enough about how important your entertainment is in terms of getting your guests up and dancing and setting the tone for your day. It’s one of the trickiest tasks as you need to really listen to understand if it’s right for you. If you are opting for a band it’s not just about the singing, you want the whole group to sound AMAZING. Every last one of those musicians need to be phenomenal players but also be able to read the crowd and really create that fantastic buzz and atmosphere.

Perfect Bridesmaid Gift Boxes

Having your bridesmaids support you during all the wedding planning, preparations, and the big day itself, is amazing and a little gift is a lovely way of letting them know how much you appreciate them. It doesn’t have to be extravagant but should be something carefully thought through and that really shows how much they mean to you.

The perfect starting point for a gift is a beautiful piece of jewellery as it is something that they can treasure for years to come and provides a lovely reminder of your special day. Whether you choose some delicate studs or some colourful bangles we know your bridesmaids will have the biggest smiles.

Sweet Favours

I have a real sweet tooth and am always the one who has wolfed down any edible favours before the wedding breakfast has begun. I’m not fussy, it can be chocolates, sweets or any combination of the two. I also love a good sweet table. We had one at our wedding (many moons ago!) and it went down a storm with a constant crowd around it. It is possible we bought a few too many but it definitely sustained plenty of epic dance floor moves.

Exclusive Reader Offer From Especially Amy

This evening we have a special offer for our Rock My Wedding readers from the lovely Amy at Especially Amy. We have featured so many beautiful weddings from Especially Amy and she always works with the most gorgeous couples and weddings. This classic day at the Rectory Hotel was a firm favourite with the team and the pictures capture all those perfect little moments. We were also swooning over the colour pops at this French affair for Claire & Hugh. The pictures were full of so much joy and the venue was to die for.

Gifts For The Groom

My husband is a huge cufflink fan. Give him any beautifully crafted pieces and he’s a happy man. There is something about them that just brings a certain something to your outfit and it’s lovely to have pairs that remind you of certain occasions, be it a birthday, anniversary or your wedding day.

It’s those little details that really help make an outfit and it’s only fair that the groom gets to really make his outfit his own.

Cute Outfits For Your Flowergirls & Page Boys

There is nothing cuter than a mini entourage following you down the aisle. When we receive pictures featuring the beaming smiles of flower girls and page boys we all do a little ‘ahhh’. Not just for the cuteness factor but for the look of sheer joy and happiness on their little faces. Children adore being part of your big day. It makes them feel so special and I don’t think you can beat that childhood excitement.

Ok, so they may not always do exactly as they are told (I should know after my darling daughter decided to sit down in the middle of the aisle at my sisters wedding and bawl her eyes out) but having them involved is such a wonderful thing. Whether they are nieces and nephews, friend’s children or your own children you can be guaranteed that they will bring that little bit of extra ‘cuteness’ to the wedding party.

The Morning Of The Wedding

The morning of your wedding is such an exciting time. All the emotions, all of them. It’s not unusual to be feeling everything from nervous to unbelievably happy and pretty much everything in between. I know I did.

I woke up super early feeling nervous but happy and tiptoed round the house waiting for my mum and sisters to wake up. It was actually quite nice having those few moments to myself to take in the fact that I was getting married that day. Eeeek.

Choosing Your Wedding Suit

Today’s post is one for the boys. Or for you if you are in charge of making sure they look dapper 😉

Lots of men struggle almost as much as the girls when it comes to choosing their wedding day look. It’s something that is becoming more and more important, not just to the groom, but to the overall look of the day. Is he going to sport a relaxed chinos and shirt look or a suave dinner suit? Then there is the debate on colours, never mind the shirts and finishing touches.
