It’s a small detail, but an important one. Where do your wedding guests leave their wedding cards? I know from experience from all the weddings that I’ve been to that people don’t like leaving their carefully-chosen (and carefully-stuffed-with-cash!) wedding cards just ANYWHERE. Step in this DIY wedding card table, which incorporates a) a box to pop said cards in, and b) a load of blank cards which your guests can fill with words of advice and love, then post into a colourful envelope. Guaranteed, you and your other half will spend the day after your wedding ahhing and giggling at the messages your loved ones have scribed.
This is surely one of the simplest but most effective table plan ideas: using beer bottles as both vases and as a seating chart. (Useful and beautiful. Marie Kondo would be so proud). Plus, it’s FUN! You get to drink ALLTHEBEER. Or wine, or cider, or whichever nicely bottled drinks you can get your hands on. (But always drink responsibly, kids!). Here’s how to do it.
If I were getting married in the summer, or at any time in the foreseeable future for that matter, THIS is how I’d be doing the wedding flowers for the tables. It’s super easy (get your bridesmaids involved and you’ll have those tables decorated in no time), effective and best of all, it won’t break the bank. And it looks hella romantic. Here’s how you can create your own DIY wedding centerpiece.
I am LOVING the craze for hoop décor that’s setting weddings alight at the moment. IMHO you can’t get a more beautiful, classic, and timeless shape than a hoop: they fit seamlessly into all types of venues and settings, and are a simple way of adding impact and interest. And if you’re canny about it, they’re affordable! All the bits I needed to create this hula hoop table plan came to a grand total of just over £30, so if you’re planning a wedding on a budget it’s a great way to save a couple of quid.
Stilettos, wedges, block heels. Metallic, velvety, bejewelled. Frilly, fluffy, feathered. The possibilities when it comes to what to wear on your feet for that all-important walk down the aisle (and almost-as-important sashay onto the dancefloor!) are endless. I’ve rounded up some of the loveliest footwear we’ve ever featured on the blog, and some of the most stunning wedding shoes available on the high street now. Prepare to be inspired.
Here at Rock My Towers we LOVE the use of a beautiful sign at a wedding. They make a great talking point and infuse a heap of personality and fun into the décor. And what better way to add real impact, but for very little cost, than with an Order of the Day crafted out of a wooden pallet.
The team here at Rock My Wedding are hands down the most stylish bunch I have ever worked with. For instance, our Slack chats are constantly choc-a-block with recommendations for gorgeous skirts/trainers/swimming cossies/dresses/hairclips. So, if you’ve got a wedding in 2019, then you’re in luck. Because Team Rock My Wedding has done the hard yards of shopping around and found the best wedding guest dresses for you.
If you’re planning on using confetti at your wedding then a gorgeous touch (and lovely talking point) is to create a confetti station from which guests can help themselves to their own cones of confetti. It’s a super easy, fun and affordable DIY that only takes a couple of hours. Get your bridesmaids involved and you’ll have whipped one up quicker than you can say Confetti Cone Station…
Whimsical, feathery and ethereal, pampas grass makes a real statement when used as part of a wedding. Due to its size, it frames other florals and greenery perfectly; and due to its neutral muted tones, it contrasts beautifully with wedding greenery such as eucalyptus. It fits into so many styles of wedding … rustic, boho, vintage, modern, romantic … here are a few ideas of how you can incorporate it into your nuptials.
