Over the rainbow

Most couples love to decorate their weddings with two contrasting colours and brides could take forever choosing a colour scheme but why just stick to one? Its all about the colours of the rainbow so if you love colour go big and bold! Adding rainbow themed objects is a great way to add bursts of colour into your day without going over the top and can look very stylish. For the bridesmaids dresses choose plain white but then accessorize with different coloured shoes and flowers, this looks very elegant but with a quirky twist and will look effective in the photographs.

Everyone wants the wedding cake to stand out so choose a rainbow creation to spread the happiness and consider this fantastic rainbow one for a cake cutting you’ll never forget! A colourful sweetie table is great idea and not just for the children! You can display the different variety of sweets in vintage jars so your guests can choose their own pick and mix to take home with them as a little treat. This is a superb idea as it is a quirky twist from the normal entertainment and creates a relaxed impression. You can choose lots of different sweets from jelly beans, smarties, sherbet saucers to pear drops which will defiantly please the guests.Read More

Wedding outfits for teens

Bridesmaids dresses for teenage girls are now available in virtually every conceivable style and colour, partly thanks to bridal boutiques often stocking prom dresses alongside their more traditional bridesmaids range, however for teenage girls who don’t want to look like a bridesmaid, nor an old maid, it is surprisingly hard to find a dress that fits the bill, and the pocket.

We love this summery style from Lagom, with porcelain blue flowers and red piping. They also do a great range of vintage-look dresses.

Fabulous footwear

Do you have a full length dress to wear on your wedding day and your feet are not going to be that visible, or do you have a 3/4 length dress with those lovely feet on show? Why not wear something a little bit different?
There are some really great shoes around at the moment at great prices. How about these lovely heels from Rocket Dog;  just £47.99.

A new chapter in our lives…

Dear brides to be,

Well Saturday was the most amazing day, the sun was out and everything went to plan.

I have to admit that last week was a bit stressful, but it was well worth it as everything fell into place at the right time and all of our family and friends had an amazing day.

A massive thank you to our Photographers Barker Evans and all of the staff at Eynsham Hall for making our day perfect.

Thank you for sharing this time with us, but we are now off on honeymoon and starting our new life as Mr and Mrs H-D.

I have included a couple of photos below, so you can see how we looked on the day! There will be more to follow, so watch this space…

Good luck with your wedding planning.
