Are you attending a wedding in the coming months? If so, you’ve probably planned out what you’ll be wearing. It’s an important day after all and what better excuse to hit the shops and find a new outfit from head to toe? After picking out a stunning dress (careful you don’t upstage the bride – unless you are the bride!) and some equally stunning footwear, you’ll be looking at accessories, and how to tie the ensemble together in a stylish way. This is often the hardest part. But have no fear. Follow this advice, because there’s no more sure-fire way to make a statement than landing the right wedding hat.

The perfect winter wedding stationery

Although the most popular time of year for a wedding are the summer months (this is when we are the busiest with our wedding stationery), The winter wedding is fast becoming a popular choice for the bride and groom. I used to think that is was because all the wedding venues were booked up years in advance during the summer, but I am starting to see a trend on ceremonies around the Christmas season. Why not combine a wonderful white wedding with the festive months? There is so much scope for decorations, bridal wear, and venues and since we can never rely on the summer weather, it is the perfect opportunity to go all out winter wonderland!

Fragrance is personal. Most of us know what we like and what we don’t. However, buying a fragrance for a special occasion can be difficult, especially if that occasion is your wedding day – a moment you will remember for the rest of your life, making the scent you choose forever associated with the memory. Specialising in a range of vintage perfumes, reimagined with a modern edge, we asked Sophia Fannon-Howell, founder of British perfume house, Deco London, for her advice on finding the perfect Wedding scent.

Flavoursome Favours Guaranteed to Please

Amaretto

Choosing wedding favours that everyone will love and enjoy, but also fit in well with your wedding can be hard to find. Making each individual one yourself can be time consuming as well as expensive, and are often forgotten at the end of the night.

 

The traditional of a wedding favour seems to be taking a turn and being twisted to fit a modern wedding; the trend for homemade tipples leaves out little ones and can take more time and effort than you originally anticipate. It’s time to bring back the wedding tradition and thank each guest with a small gift they are guaranteed to love.

Purple Haze Wedding Inspo

The colour purple can be hard to incorporate into any colour scheme without seeming too gothic or dark, so I wanted to bring you a few easy ways to include this gorgeous colour in your day, with a few inspirational images too.  

 

The colour purple symbolises nobility and luxury due to the fact that it's rarely found in nature. The perfect colour then, for an opulent and romantic wedding.  The key is fresh lavender in softer hues of purple, which you can use as a base colour, in your décor, or even as food or drink colouring.  Lavender season runs from around May until about late August, so ideal if you are planning purple for next summer!
