Wedding Signs You Need For Your Big Day Pin Image

Five Signs You Need For Your Wedding Day

Who doesn’t love a beautiful crafted, hand written sign? We’re signage obsessed here at RMW and love how they can bring together your wedding styling beautifully. Use the same font as your wedding stationery, tie in your colour scheme and the final result will be cohesive, gorgeous and super stylish.

Use signs to tell you guests what’s going on, where to go when and what they will be eating. Our favourite ideas include the ‘unplugged ceremony’ sign – where guests are told to put those pesky phones away during the ceremony, and the dance floor rules post as seen in the Rock My Wedding book, Your Day Your Way. For more ideas we love, read on…

Goodwood Wedding Green Antlers Photography Pin Image

Goodwood Wedding With An Austin 7 Ulster Car

I love this pair and their slightly eccentric, but oh-so British wedding day. Classic cars, elegant fashion and dapper gentlemen make this Goodwood wedding completely timeless through and through. With Jess and Tom’s Austin 7 Ulster car almost stealing the show, it’s a wedding that’s full of fun and surprises. Outfit changes for both the bride and groom, plus a giant caterpillar cake make this wedding one of the most original I’ve seen for a long time. Clearly a wonderful time was had by all – the music and dancing looks like such fun.

This pair found their photographers, Green Antlers, here on RMW, which we always love to read. Let’s enjoy the images shall we?

Alternative Roles In a Wedding Pin Image

Informal Roles In A Wedding For Your Family & Friends

Getting engaged is such an exciting time. But when it comes to planning out the formal roles in a wedding sometimes there just aren’t enough to go around, or there might be some awkward conversations with family members or friends who assume they are going to be more involved in the day than they actually are. We’ve had several reader requests via Instagram to discuss this, and while we’ve covered some aspects in the podcast, we thought we’d share some more ideas here too.

Here are some roles you can assign to people who you’d like to include in an informal way on your big day.

Three Bridal Fashion Trends We’re Loving For 2019

For 2019, bridal fashion is all about relaxed and minimal looks and naturally we’ve all been massively inspired by 2018’s Royal Weddings. But also the 90s looks that have inspired street style, such as slip dresses and halter necks, as well as grunge, are being seen in bridal this year. More comfortable than wearing layers and layers of tulle, we’re seeing satin and silk as key fabrics, long sleeves for ultra modesty and necklines that truly flatter the décolletage.

Three core trends we’ve pulled from last years bridal markets and our favourite bridal designer’s 2019 collections are Bardot and boat necklines, halterneck dresses and minimal, sleek silhouettes. We’ve rounded up our favourite dresses for 2019 that demonstrate these trends to perfection!

Bespoke Suzanne Neville Wedding Dress For A Weekend Wedding At Pynes House Devon Pin Image

Bespoke Suzanne Neville Wedding Dress For A Weekend Wedding At Pynes House Devon

It’s always a treat to blog a wedding from Pynes House, it’s an incredible place with stunning grounds, set at the top of a valley surrounded by countryside. You really couldn’t ask for more from a wedding venue. This Pynes House wedding is extra special, because I was actually there and can confirm it was every bit as beautiful as it looks. The flowers were stunning, Jesse looked utterly gorgeous in her bespoke Suzanne Neville gown and the food from Pickle Shack was just top notch. But then with Katrina Otter at the helm of planning the wedding, I expected nothing less.

Look out for the dark green stationery from Bureau Design, so elegant and I think we’ll be seeing lots of this natural shade for stationery this year. The beautiful photographs come from Soph and John at John Barwood Photography – two lovely human beings who will blend into your wedding day like guests and take a fabulous set of images to boot.

Make sure you read all about Jesse and Ed’s separate trips to Rome…completely heartwarming, this pair are clearly meant to be!
