It’s a nice day for a….red wedding

After all, red is the colour of passion and love so why not use this dramatic colour for your wedding theme! Red wouldn’t be many brides first choice or even second choice but hopefully these ideas will give you inspiration to channel the red vibe. Let’s start with the dress, yes a red wedding dress! There have been many different coloured gowns rocking the catwalk lately like blues and pinks but red seems to be the biggest coloured trend in 2014 which would be perfect for those braver brides. Celebrities such as Jessica Biel and Anne Hathaway have both turned their back on tradition by choosing coloured dresses so why not join them and make heads turn while you strut down the aisle.

Marry in metallic!

Are you bored with all the wedding colour schemes? If yes then why not make a statement and have a metallic themed wedding which is great alternative twist from the normal colour schemes. Here are some ways to incorporate metallics into your day without breaking the bank! The dress is a great way to grasp the metallic theme; there have been stunning gold dresses rocking the catwalk from Oscar de la Renta, Vera Wang and Monique Lhuillier. In many ways, wearing a gold dress can feel more special than a white one as it is very unique and can be more flattering with golden and olive skins tones.

Are you looking for inspiration for your wedding flowers?

Flowers can have the most impact on a wedding day from when the bride first walks into the church to when the guests sit down to their tables and see a beautiful flower table decoration. So why not look for a specialist company who delivers stunning flowers?

Whether your style is traditional, quirky, exotic or artsy, you can find a beautiful flower arrangement. When choosing flowers it is good to think seasonally so if you’re planning to marry in the summer season, flowers to consider are lilies, carnations, sunflowers, chrysanthemums, lavender and roses which would create colourful bouquets for a garden or country wedding.  However, using flowers like delphinium, hydrangea and gerbera creates the perfect autumnal wedding whilst winter flowers include snowdrops, hyacinth, lilacs and irises.

Riche de Fleurs can create these elegant bouquets; simple bunches of flowers, to large scale designs using their supply of the freshest flowers by their extremely talented florists so they would be a great company to choose to arrange your flowers. Also they import a wide range of flowers from Holland to create beautiful designs for your special day.


Bringing you Good Luck

Horse shoes have always been considered good luck for weddings, and miniature horse shoes used to feature in bouquets and on wedding cakes.
So what about having a horse shoe from a winning Lambourn racehorse, decorated with ribbons to match your colour scheme and with a ribbon loop to ensure it always stays the right way up to hold the luck in.
The choice of shoes currently includes a limited number from the Henry Cecil trained Frankel and many other famous winners.

A ‘growing’ trend for English flowers

There has been a growing trend in the last year for ‘English’ flowers and natural designs. However there are various meanings for this:
True English flowers are UK grown, seasonal and are reliant on the UK weather conditions; delphinium, lily of the valley, freesias and sweet peas to name but a few. However the down side of this is that when we have a bad spring (such as this year) the seasons can be behind and therefore flowers a bride has requested may not be in flower yet, or if seasons are ahead of themselves and flowers that would normally be available in mid June have already flowered and finished by May.
