By Debs Cass on June 10th, 2013

The invitations have been heatedly debated over, sent and rsvp’d. The perfect dress agonised over (not to mention a small fortune spent on); The menu tasted and all those finicky details researched to the nth degree. Now there’s just time for those last minute jobs that didn’t make it higher up on your wedding plan.

So with just a few weeks to go ‘til you say those immortal words: ‘I’m sure I ordered the gold ones..’, here’s our last minute wedding tips we think could come in handy…

Thank you Cards Wedding Banner £13

Rather than than waiting ‘til after the big day, it’s best to get on top of this job as each gift arrives, so that you are not running what seems like a production line post the glorious big day. This could even be one of these details that could be delegated to the groom, keeping track of what each gift is and how you will both appreciate it. You could however also use your wedding photo's with the help of this Thank You Wedding Banner for your cards: Made on 4x4 inch white chipboard. Antiqued edges with balck acrylic paint and hand stamped letters in black. Strung on a natural piece of twine with rafia ties to each end. Any Occassion Banners

Bring summer into your autumn wedding with a flower crown

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on October 4th, 2012

Summer might seem like just a distant memory (mostly because in Britain we pretty much didn’t have one!), as autumn and colder months grab hold on the year. I’m a big fan of autumn, being able to layer clothes and wrap up warm and enjoy the sunny yet crisp days.

If you’re a bigger fan of summer, yet are having an autumn/winter wedding why not bring the warmer season into your bridal accessories and wear a flower crown on your wedding day? We’ve had a little nosy around our favourite site at the moment and discovered these beauties.

Vintage inspired Debbie Carlisle 2012 bridal headpieces

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on October 14th, 2011


Picture 1 of 10

Debbie Carlisle is perhaps best known for her luxury vintage jewellery bouquets but we think she’ll soon be equally acknowledged for her vintage-inspired headpieces and cuffs that mix vintage charm with a modern edge.

The 2012 collection of headpieces and cuffs take inspiration from the 1920s, 1950s, 1960 and 1970s but with a modern twist and is available online now.

Debbie said: “I wanted to make this collection as versatile as possible so brides could wear their chosen design in many different ways. I wanted to give them maximum choice about their on-the-day look – or looks – and also give them the option of wearing their bridal headpiece over and over, long after their wedding day has gone.”
