Wedding Tree Decoration – DIY Family Tree Hoops

Trees at wedding venues were made for decorating. And if you’re looking for wedding tree decoration ideas, you’re in for a treat. We’ve teamed up with Hobbycraft to share an extremely easy yet effective DIY tutorial for a wedding tree decoration of a family tree that makes an impressive installation. The latest decor trend you need in your arsenal is the humble embroidery hoop and to create the full display, you only need a few bits and pieces. If you’re after last minute wedding decor, you can easily pull this together along to add final touches, all available on next day delivery from Hobbycraft.
Displaying family wedding photos at your own nuptials is a wonderful way of including your parents, grandparents and siblings in your big day. You can display on any backdrop in your venue that’s suitable. We chose to use a gorgeous apple tree to make the perfect setting for a family tree, but you could easily hang this from an archway or beams, depending on the venue.

Wedding Decor From Sainsbury’s Home

When I was planning my own wedding I loved the process of choosing and personalising our wedding decor. When Sainsbury’s Home contacted us about a sponsored post to support the new wedding range we were more than happy to style the collection to inspire you to add extra flourishes to your big day.

What Makes A Good Bridesmaid?

Hi everyone, it’s lovely to be back over here chatting bridesmaids as normally you’ll find me over on our lifestyle site, Rock My Style.

My friend Caroline recently got engaged to her fiancé Bradley and asked me to be one of her best girls. With this in mind Fern and I thought a series of posts from a bridesmaid’s perspective might be helpful. I’ll go into a lot of detail about the hen do planning in the next few posts but for now I thought we should get serious and talk about the responsibilities…

Snuggling Up For Winter

On our sister lifestyle blog, Rock My Style we recently climbed aboard the hygge bandwagon. If you’re not familiar with the Danish term, it’s essentially creating cosy and conversational spaces to savour everyday moments and enjoy life with your nearest and dearest. Sounds like a flipping lovely idea to me.

Essentials For Every DIY Bride.

DIY Post

Long time no see! It’s Lauren C here. I’m hoping you’ve heard all about Rock My Wedding’s little sister blog, Rock My Style? If you have, we hope you’ve found a wealth of beauty, fashion and interiors inspiration, if not, where the devil have you been hiding?!

Over on RMS I can be found mostly talking about home décor and DIY’s (as well as a whole load of other lifestyle chat) so I thought it would be nice to talk about do-it-yourself over on these pretty pages.

In the run up to my own big day there was a whole lot of punching and stamping going on. No, that wasn’t me having a Bridezilla moment, rather myself and the rest of the family getting stuck in to some good old DIY. My own wedding is now a distant memory but my calendar is crammed with wedding invites from some of my closest friends and I’m only too happy to lend a hand with a home-made creation or two.

I’m not promising that I’m going to bring a whole load of new ideas to the table but I’ve gathered together a few essentials if you’re planning on including a bit of do-it-yourself for your Big Day.

Show Us Your Pins!


Hello there!

Excuse me if you think I’m a tad rude. I haven’t made an appearance on Rock My Wedding for a while and then all of a sudden I’m asking you to flash your legs… and in this weather too!

As much as I’d like to chat with you about 90 denier tights, I’m popping by today to launch RMW’s first ever Pinterest competition.


Not only is it starting to look a lot like Christmas, it’s also starting to feel a lot like winter and so we’re looking to the chilliest season of the year to provide the theme for our contest.

It’s very easy to enter; all that we ask you to do is to follow RMW on Pinterest and then create your own board called ‘Rock My Winter Wedding‘.

Then it’s time to cram your board to the brim with fabulous winter wedding inspiration. You can pin from absolutely anywhere that takes your fancy but we do request that you pin at least one image from the Rock My Wedding archives. Don’t forget to add the hashtag #rockmywinterwedding and mention @rockmywedding in your pins.

Hampton Court Christmas Wedding

The prize on offer is to join Team RMW as a guest pinner where you’ll get the opportunity to pin to your heart’s content on a subject of your choosing (within reason, of course. This is a family website after all…)

Anyone can enter the competition so don’t worry if you’re getting married in the warmer months. This is a chance for you to let your imagination run wild and embrace all that the season has to offer; sumptuous faux furs, glimmering candle light, roaring fires, bouquets of berries and showers of snow. You don’t just have to limit your images to w-days; we’d love for you to share images that others can use as inspiration for Christmas day such as table settings or perhaps a decadent new year party!

Snow wedding atHampton Manor

We’ve featured some magical winter wonderland weddings in the past such as Michelle and Richard’s stylish Babington House Affair captured by Especially Amy and Elaine and Darren’s romantic festive Hampton Court Palace celebration photographed by Brett Symes. Who can forget when Anna Clarke’s photos of Amy and Ben’s snowy day (that actually took place in Spring) or Becky and Tristan’s bright December candlelit bash captured by Mckinley Rodgers?

Bright December wedding at Forde Abbey

For those of you who haven’t yet joined the pinboard style photo sharing site, you really must. Pinterest is ideal for brides-to-be to collate all your ideas in one place together. It also makes you feel like you’re super creative, even if in reality you’re sat in front of the television watching EastEnders.

It’s easy peasy to pin to Pinterest from Rock My Wedding. If you hover over any of the images in our posts, you’ll see a ‘pin it’ option appear. If you’re in the gallery then there’s a snazzy ‘p’ icon that you can click on too.

Babington House Winter Wedding

There’s a little bit of boring legal stuff to take a look over if you fancy it. Please read the T’s & C’s here, and if you need a little help you can take a look at our own winter wedding board.

You have until December 15th to create your board. Make sure you pop back and post a link to your board in the comments section below.

So all that leaves me to ask is what are your favourite winter weddings from the RMW archives?

What elements would you include if you were getting married in the next few months?

You are more than welcome to comment below but it would be even better if you could share your ideas through a fancy pinboard.
