I don’t really like to use a theme but inspiration is everywhere and is definitely a good idea.
The new film – The Great Gatsby has some lovely 1920′s clothes, diamonds, glamour and glitz. So why not use of touch of these for your wedding. These pictures give a flavour of the film and i think what really comes across is the opulence and styling details that could give your event a wow!
Small touches like champagne in coupe glasses rather than flutes, the yellow colour of the vintage car, gold shimmer backdrop cloths, geometric patterns, 1920′s inspired clothing and jewellery and rooms overflowing with flowers.
This is a clever little tip.
Make up bags of confetti and attach to the order of service.
Then you can be sure all guests have confetti to hand and they will think it is a nice touch.
Be sure you advise people where and when to throw it, your photographer or wedding planner can co-ordinate this for you.
Keira Knightley got married in France this weekend – 4th May 2013.
Will her style be the start of simpler, shorter wedding dresses? and the return of tulle and champagne colours?
I quite like this relaxed look, and i think it is going to be the way forward for many couples.
The dress is very beautiful and stylish ( not white). His suit is informal but very crisp.
She has on simple jewellery, and daisy chain tiara and pink ballet pumps.
They certainly make it look effortless, and european destinations are very popular at the moment.
Perhaps the only thing i am unsure of are the sunglasses, but i am sure they were removed once they were in private.
Just found these for a bride and thought i had to share the idea.
They are perfect for putting photos in of the couple with friends and leaving on tables. Works well as a talking point, stylish, personalised and fun!
Or you could be more creative and add text/picture as a menu, or plan for the day. Would also work well for children.
In the past balloons at weddings have not been very stylish.
I think they are making a come back and can be really fun and quite striking as decorations.
I would keep the colours simple and the over large ones seem to work best.
As ever the pictures below speak a thousand words….
Whilst researching for weddings i often come across inspiration and like brides i keep all the pictures and refer back to them. So i thought i would share a few with you…..
Feathers in a bouquet
Fresh and fruity non alcoholic cocktails
A wedding pinata – fun for all the guests and sweets as a bonus!
Cute vintage car decorated with Spring flowers
This fabulous cake, good enough to eat!
If you are getting married this weekend, then Congratulations.
A wedding should have a starting point and some initial inspiration but this should not really take over into a theme.
I always advise to choose things you like and then it will all come together as a reflection of you both. Do not worry too much if things match, and do not try too hard to coordinate. Choose carefully but do not set yourself too many rules – other than budget.
Happy Easter to all the brides and grooms planning their wedding.

This is a twist on the chocolate fountain or the sweet table – a cupcake bar.
Guests can choose their cake, icing and personalise with toppings. Sounds fun for the children and the grown ups.
Perfect for the evening buffet, or as an afternoon tea.
Easy to make a DIY version too, and fill with the bride and grooms favourite sweet treats.
Sounds like a great day out, but sometimes it can also be frustrating.
You have tried on a few dresses know the style you want but you just can’t quite find the perfect dress. The london wedding dress finder company may be the solution - www.londonweddingdressfinder.com
I have not used them but wondered if anyone else had?
Must admit though however long it takes to find the perfect dress i think the old fashioned way of going to lots of shops, having a few sips of champagne and enjoying a girly day out is hard to beat. Even if it takes several goes. Enjoy this moment, you only do it once !
