Traditional Wedding Favours

I missed the wedding of a dear friend who I have known since university as it was in India over the time my parents were visiting me here in London But being the thoughtful friend he is, the lovely couple gave us their wedding favour. Most wedding favours are candles, soaps, or almonds (all under the cost of a pound or five)…. but not this couple!
I love how grand Indian weddings are. Families spend their entire life savings to re-create a movie like set in the context of …

Fill me in Posters

Whilst trawling the notonthehighstreet.com website, I came across a “fill me in ” poster which I bought for my big 30th birthday party coming up. I thought it would be fun to get my guests to colour in and write their names/wishes in the little bubble. Also, this would make for an interesting activity or talking point as I would love my guests to mingle.

This got me thinking this would make such a great guest book alternative… and especially if you can hang this in your home and cherish the …

Cake Trends for 2013

The buzz on the wedding grape vine is that an eye popping, spectacular cake is a key wedding theme for 2013. As a cake (or maybe more precisely cupcake) lover, I would not disagree. It can serve as a centre piece for your wedding and feed all the guests too! In fact, one of the main events (and photography wise) is the cutting of the wedding cake.

Children or No Children at Weddings

Almost every bride has faced this dillemma – myself included- on whether or not and how to NOT invite children at weddings. They are a messy, screaming bunch and can be unpredictable to seat and accomodate. In the end, I wrote ‘Regrets no children under the age of 1 as there are no baby chairs at the venue’ which was true! but also a more diplomatic way to deflect attention to the venue restrictions. I began searching for other bride’s recommendations on handling this sensitive issue, here are a selection …

Save the Date Luggage Tag

Our friends, Janet and Paul sent us these lugage tags Save-the-Dates in our christmas cards this year, which slipped out just as I opened the cards. What a lovely suprise! On the reverse, they had printed details of their wedding website which gave information on holiday prices and trip suggestions. I really liked the idea because its such a fun, creative way to announce the Save the Date and to give details of the wedding, particularly where its long haul and guests need to start booking annual leave as soon …
