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.
Hoops are having a BIG moment in the world of weddings. They’re romantic, practical, beautiful and symbolic. And the hoop bouquet is one of my favourite ways to incorporate hoops into a wedding. Ultra-versatile, bridal hoop bouquets will look just as perfect at laid-back, boho nuptials as they will at a classic and elegant wedding. They make a beautiful alternative to the traditional bouquet and can double up as décor after the ceremony.
Wedding hoop bouquets can be bought for anything up to £60 online, but today I’m going to show you how to save yourself approximately £45 by creating your own DIY hoop bouquet for just £15.

As a bride, I think one of the loveliest gifts you can give to your best girls on the morning of your wedding is a beautiful set of getting ready robes. Whether it’s a delicate kimono, a sassy little pyjama shorts set, or something with a hint of lace or silk, it’s something your bridesmaids will treasure forever, and something that will always remind them of your lovely wedding day.
Blush, rose, peach, pastel-pink. Call it what you will, this hue of gown will transcend all seasons, trends and venues. Blush bridesmaid dresses will look just as perfect in a garden wedding as they will in a fairy-tale castle. And they will suit the skin types of all your best girls. I should know: I recently had the honour of being a bridesmaid for my best school friend Lucy. I’m olive skinned and was nervous that a pale pink wouldn’t suit me, but it’s totally put blush on my shopping radar.
