Bridal Underwear – Get It Right

It may sound like a dramatic statement but your bridal underwear is one of the most important purchases you will make. A perfectly fitted bra, knickers and/or contour wear is required to enhance the look of your wedding dress. Think of it as the foundation for what might be the most expensive outfit of your life.

The right choice of bridal underwear will make you feel confident and comfortable and you need to be. You could potentially be wearing your ensemble for over 12 hours. That’s a long time to be battling with too-tight bra straps and a wayward pair of pants.

Wedding Chair Decorations Pin Image

DIY Wedding Chair Decorations

We were recently joined by florist Sarah Richardson, founder of Leafy Couture who demonstrated how to make beautiful wedding chair decorations using flowers and foliage.

If you fancy a bash at some Do-It-Yourself then this is a relatively straight forward project to try. We recommend decorating you and your partner’s chairs to make them stand out from guests – either for the ceremony or reception or of course both! We are very much behind reusing your wedding decor wherever you can, making your budget go further AND it’s kinder to the environment.

We used beautiful gold leaf ribbon by Lancaster and Cornish to add the perfect finish to our DIY Wedding Chair Back but you can, of course, use ribbons or fabrics that tie in with your colour scheme or theme.

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.
