2011 Colours!

They have been released 2011 wedding colours! I was so excited to see what colours would be the "In"colours for next year, there are so many options and some are colours I had never even thought of using for a wedding, but now I am racking my brains to come up with some Fabulous combinations for a truely unique wedding! Here is a little sneak peak of what we can expect to see a lot of next year! I love them all but my absolute favs are enchanted picnic and shadowy shores! 

“Archaic Garden” – The range is whitened, stony, mineral or delicately fruity. The softness of faded, evanescent, light and serious colors.
“Underwater Variation” – The range delves into the blue, and extends to an aqua green. Sea anemone pink is enhanced by inky blues and purples. Navy and brown darken the landscape. White soap bubbles refresh the saturated atmosphere.
“Tropical Dramaturgy” – The range is solar, incandescent, spicy and suffocating. Yellow singing at the top of its voice, uninhibited parrot green, the orange of Tibetan monks, the entire spectrum of reds from purple to salmon pink. Bushy brown, deep blue.
“Enchanted Picnic” – The range sets your teeth on edge. The neon colors are whitened. Jelly pink is transparent, the pastels are over-bright. The brights are on fire, tempered by a reasonable grey and a measured beige.
“Shadowy Shores” – The range is tinged with vegetal colors. Bathed in red, boat hull; dark navy, hut; strong green, canvas. Or lightened colors, bleached by the salt, faded by the sun and the sea.

I LOVE autumn!

Being my ocd self when it comes to wedding planning, before I even had a boyfriend I had planned my wedding colours for each and every season. My favourite colour scheme was my autumnal one. Browns, oranges, reds and golds I thought would make a fabulous rich and exquisite look! Here are some of my favourite looks! 
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! I cannot wait to plan my first autumn wedding!

I can't help myself.....

How amazing are these? They look fabulous and would make an amazing cupcake tower instead of a cake (or as well as!- I don’t think you can EVER have too much cake!) Heidi makes the most exquisite looking cakes and everyone is talking about how FABULOUS they taste!

They could even be given as mother of the bride/groom gifts as a change from flowers!
Personally I could eat cupcakes ALL day ( especially chocolate cupcakes or red velvet or strawberry or who am I kidding any flavour!)
Look here on her facebook page to see all the cuppy cakes she has designed! My idea of heaven……..good job I am making red velvets for Halloween tomorrow I am seriously craving cupcakes NOW!

The Wedding House....

I hate it! This show is a complete joke! Yes its nice to have personalised weddings and have a theme and decor that is totally you BUT surely there is taking it too far and turning marriage into a massive joke?! Plus where is the reception? Just my opinion but there we go! Anyway sorry for the little hiatus hubby was on holiday for work so we took a little staycation! Am off to the local wedding fayre on Sunday so we shall see any new ideas I can find!

A rose by any other name...

… still a rose! It doesn’t have to be roses, let your bouquet reflect YOUR personality. It seems like too many brides let the florist tell them what they “can” have! What you need to remember is there isn’t anything you can’t have! The only restrictions can be the season and whether the flowers you want are available. Using fruits, sticks, pearls, diamonds, feathers can all add another dimension to your bouquet or centerpieces and can help keep costs down. After all a lime is a lot cheaper than a lily! I’ve been looking around for some “original” masterpieces and here are some of my favourites!

Wedding Favours...

Until now if you wanted cute favours (without making them yourself) you had to order from the states. Which meant not only did you have too pay ridiculous shipping costs but also customs, but I have found an amazing website where there is flat rate shipping of £7.95 so get ordering!

"Perfectly Suited"
"Meant to Bee!"

A Yummy Treat

Bored of the usual place cards? Fancy a sweet treat? Want to give guests a combined place card AND favour (therefore reducing costs?) then why not try these.
I came across this great idea here If you or someone you know has a talent for baking why not “borrow” Melissa’s fab idea. There is even a step-by-step guide it couldn’t be easier!

I’ve been searching around for the best bargain wedding dresses, I never realized there was so much choice for less than £200. Two that have caught my eye are BHS (I know shocking) and Monsoon. They both have a couple of dresses priced under £200. BHS seem to have a bigger selection of formal type dresses whereas Monsoon seem to have a beach quality about that which look amazing in the summer or on a nice exotic beach somewhere.  Phase 8 have even brought us their own range of wedding dresses but you will be paying closer to £300!

Two WHOLE hours of wedding tv on BBC three! Cherry gets married and then don’t tell the bride! Found out as well that 29 is the average age of the UK bride! Would you be willing to put the whole day in your grooms hands? I am not that brave, as much as I trust my hubby there is no way I could trust MY DRESS in his hands! But yes I am settling down for my dream evening, I just need a nice big slice of one of these…..

Don't miss it!

An event I LOVE is the seriously go it a seriously good use of a day! If you want to find a HUGE selection of pretty much everything then you need to be at London Earls Court 1st, 2nd or 3rd October or Birmingham NEC 8th, 9th or 10th October. They run all day are a fab way to grab some AMAZING deals and let you see what is the latest on the  wedding catwalk. Believe me it is well worth the £15!

The beginning of MY fairy tale ending....

Well thats the dream Ive spent my whole life wanting to plan weddings and Ive “wasted” hours and hours and hours researching and looking around wedding fayres. Then I only had FIVE months to plan my own. All the scrapbook pages and mood boards I’d spent years creating came in very handy.  After 20 short weeks of putting my ideas into action it was all over, yet I still had loads of information and an even bigger passion for weddings so I thought what better than to share all the information I have gathered over the YEARS with all of you!  Ill be sharing help for BIG weddings, small weddings, budget weddings, EXTRAVAGENT weddings, those at home or abroad. Basically if its a wedding ceremony I will be able to help!
Stay tuned for an amazing journey that is sure to end       

Happily ever after!
