Or personalise your wedding day by making your own. Better still, delegate to a family member who is good with a sewing machine. Keep it simple, buy fabric that suits your colours and cut into triangles, then sew to ribbon/tape.
You can also get photos printed onto fabric and cut out the images to make fun bunting that guests can really enjoy as well as look pretty.
For mothers of the bride and guests looking to match an outfit with a hat, www.edentiaras.co.uk will hand make fascinators to match most colours. This also means, you can guarantee no-one else will be wearing the same as you!
For brides, Caroline has a great selection of tiara’s, headbands, combs and clips to complete your bridal hair. If a tiara is not your thing then many of the designs are more like hairbands, but give you a touch of something special.
I love the thought of passing my tiara to my daughter for her wedding, or having it turned into a necklace. I have spoken to many brides who initially think no to a tiara, but in my experience when they see themselves in their dress it is always worth trying one on.
For a wedding in the summer the bride wanted something more than just champagne to offer guests.
There are lots of choices, (pimms, mojito’s, daiquiri’s, champagne cocktails)
For a simpler look you can just drop a frozen raspberry into each glass of champagne, an easy way to add a touch of interest to guests arrival drinks. Personally, i think you can’t beat a simple glass of pink champagne, with a selection of juices for the non drinkers.
Kids cocktails are also fun, if you are inviting children to the reception.
