Wedding Anniversary – Celebrating 10 Years Of Marriage

Today marks our 10 year wedding anniversary. An entire decade has passed since I walked up the aisle of Notley Abbey and said “I Do” to my now husband James. Our string quartet playing Damien Rice’s “The Blower’s Daughter” as my Dad accidentally trampled on my veil. True story. I have the photos to prove it.

Even though our lives have evolved so much since then, it still seems slightly surreal.

The Six Best Alternative Flower Girl Dresses 2019

And by that, I mean alternative to your usual white and/or ivory often pouffy (which is very cute by the way) more “traditional” notion of a flower girl dress.

My sister gets married in May and has three flower girls aged between 15 months and 5. Although she doesn’t want them to match she does want them to “coordinate” in terms of a colour palette. She’s keen on embroidery and florals (yay!) and doesn’t want to spend a small fortune either – her entire wedding budget is £10,000.

Rock My Wedding – The Podcast

We always endeavour to offer no nonsense advice, inspiration and planning ideas for your wedding across every available platform, be that via the blog or our frequently updated social media accounts. Sometimes it can be quite restrictive, trying to cover everything we want to share in an instagram caption or a tweet, so it made perfect sense for us to start our very own Podcast series!

Style Me Pretty Closing – The Original Wedding Blog

When news broke of the imminent closure of Style Me Pretty myself and the team were both shocked and saddened. It’s not for us to speculate publicly the reasons behind the decision, becoming part of a corporate giant such as Oath following various purchases and mergers by the likes of Verizon, Yahoo and AOL (who purchased SMP back in 2012) means that Style Me Pretty would constantly be under scrutiny with regards their profitability, with continual comparisons to all of the other media platforms owned by Verizon.

One thing I can say for sure is if it wasn’t for Style Me Pretty, Rock My Wedding would not exist.

Considering Your Wedding Fashion? You Need to Shop HERE!

When my husband and I were planning our wedding we made a trip to Bicester Village, a designer shopping outlet near Oxford. Our only regret was that we hadn’t visited sooner, we couldn’t believe the significant savings that we could have made on amazing fashion and beautiful accessories.

All I Want For Christmas Is You

We are loving listening to Mariah on repeat whilst enjoying a glass of Prosecco and seemingly being unable to keep our hands out of the Quality Street tin. I guess it’s well and truly nearly Christmas (6 more sleeps!) and if you haven’t yet bought a gift for your engaged friend or indeed yourself then how about pre-ordering the Rock My Wedding book “Your Day Your Way” written by our founder Charlotte O’Shea?
