    Because she’s more than just your Bridesmaid

    Today is all about your bridesmaids and how special they are. How do you convey to them just what they mea to you? Well apart from telling them-obviously, a thoughtful gift can go a  long way.

    Because she’s more than just your Bridesmaid

    We have teamed up with Boots UK, who have a vast array of gifts on offer. There are the obvious ones- cosmetics and fine fragrances. These can even be engraved with your bridesmaids’ names foe that bespoke touch. You can even arrange for your bridesmaid to keep all those lovely new cosmetics in a personalised makeup bag.

    However, did you know you can also purchase beautiful gifts such as sparkly photo frames, divine scented candle, that you can actually personalise?

    You can also buy spa days and mini breaks from Boots, or a delectable afternoon tea as a pre-wedding treat.

    Finally when words really do mean the world, you can buy a personalised card for each of your bridesmaids so you can tell them exactly what each of them mean to you.

    My favourite gifts are the beautifully glittery rose gold photo frame-perfect to keep that special wedding photo of your bridesmaid and you after the big day.

    Be the Man of the Match on Your Wedding Day

    what do we mean when we say be the man of the match on your wedding day? Today’s post is all about the boys. Let’s face it, most weddings are girl heavy. it’s all about the dress, the flowers, the makeup.. Then its the bridesmaids and the decor. Some blokes may gamely try to engage in the wedding planning, helping to choose menus, attending cake tastings and deciding on colour schemes. However, let’s face it most men really don’t know (or care) about eh difference between mauve and lilac!

    A groom often ends up basically being told what to wear and when to turn up.

    Today, rather than lecturing the groom-to-be about wedding etiquette, where to go and what to say, we think it’s better to give wedding advice in a way that the man of the moment can relate to – via sport!

    Be the Man of the Match on Your Wedding Day

    So here is a handy infographic from our friends at Smart City Weddings on how to be the man of the match on your wedding day.

    So there you have it. How to be match ready for your wedding day. Keep your eye on the ball, keep to the rules and you’ll be claiming the star prize by the end of the night.

    How to look like a Diva in Your Wedding Photos

    What does it take to look fabulous in wedding photos? Is it the lavish wedding dress? Is it the lovely hairstyle? Is it the exquisite jewellery? Is it the sumptuous bridal bouquet?

    While all of these things matter, there is something even more important – how you feel and behave. Your posture and facial expressions speak volumes about your charisma and confidence, and all of this will show in your wedding photographs. If you want to look like a diva, you have to feel and act like one.

    Luckily, we have a few simple guidelines that can shape you into a stunning, picture-perfect bride.

    Don’t slouch

    Slouching is a huge no-no both on and off the camera. To make sure you’re not slouching, keep your shoulders slightly pulled back. Practice walking or sitting with your back straight, so the posture can become more spontaneous.

    Another simple trick is to lift your chin so your neck is elongated. Practice glancing sideways at the mirror with your chin slightly raised. As the pose gets more natural, you can be sure you are free of the double-chin scare! Believe me – there is nothing worse than a perfect photo ruined by that unsightly layer of loose skin under the chin!

    Relax the arms

    Most modern wedding dresses are sleeveless, so brides often wonder what to do with their arms. Some brides are self-conscious because they feel their upper arms are too flabby or simply not well-shaped. As a result, they usually press the arms tightly against the body, so they appear stiff and awkward.

    To avoid the ‘’stiff arms’’ situation, you should lift your arms slightly and give room for your biceps and triceps to breathe. With the arm subtly lifted at the elbow, you will feel infinitely more comfortable. This pose is also excellent for holding your bouquet.

    6 unusual, affordable ways to make stunning wedding flower displays

    Flowers and floral arrangements can do so much to add romance, intrigue and drama to a wedding venue, it’s difficult to know where to start when it comes to singing their myriad virtues.

    Planning something suitably attention-grabbing and unique, though, can also be a bit of a nightmare. Taste in flowers is so subjective. Different blooms have so many personal and historical affiliations for all of us. Trying to come up with something both new and beautiful can feel a bit…well, like being unable to see the woods for the trees, as it were. And that’s before we even get to discussing how expensive those intricate pre-bought arrangements can add to those rapidly spiralling big day expenses!

    6 unusual, affordable ways to make stunning wedding flower displays

    So, with all that in mind, here are six 6 unusual, affordable ways to make stunning wedding flower displays. These are quick examples intended as a jumping-off point for general inspiration. Each of the ideas below should help prove that it’s well within almost everyone’s budget – and, moreover, their imagination – to put flowers and greenery firmly at the heart of any décor scheme, while still creating a memorably bold, beautiful and highly original look.

    Hanging gardens

    One of the biggest logistical headaches you’ll face when dreaming up stunning-yet-cost-effective floral displays is figuring out exactly where to put them. Gathering friends and family in one finite space with enough room for eating, drinking, speeches and dancing is already hard enough without making things feel cramped. So where to put those beautiful, cascading arrangements you had your heart set on? One cunning solution is to (quite literally) turn the whole idea on its head.

    Hang your floral displays down from above: attaching individual bouquets or entire planted beds (provided you’ve checked the weight limits!) over tables or dancefloors. This  gives a wonderfully unique feel to most spaces, and goes a long way to cheering up those typically bland marquee ceilings without having to spend a packet on fancy chandeliers.

    7 Ominous Wedding Superstitions and Their Origins

    In order to ensure every minute of their wedding is perfect, the future bride and groom spend every waking hour planning the ceremony down to the finest details. However, there are some things you cannot plan for. For one, you can hardly predict what the weather will be like when you are booking that luxurious outdoor venue.

    However, there is another thing nearlyweds fear even more than bad weather, and that’s superstition. Just like traditions, there are many wedding superstitions passed on through generations. While some dismiss them as relics of past times, others go out of their way to find something borrowed and something blue.

    Wedding superstitions range from those related to wedding jewellery. Others to what you should or shouldn’t gift the newlyweds. There are also rules they should follow before and after the wedding. In this article, we list 7 Ominous Wedding Superstitions and Their Origins

    Your Wedding Ring Shouldn’t Be Too Loose or Tight

    Just like in the old tale of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, the wedding ring should be perfect. If the wedding ring is too loose, that could result in the couple breaking up. Similarly, a ring that is too tight is often related to jealousy and restrictions someone in the relationship imposes onto the other.

    If you are afraid of this superstition coming true, the best way to make sure the wedding ring is a perfect fit is to try on the rings at a dealership before the big day. Companies like Leo Hamel Fine Jewellery and Engagement Ring Store in San Diego offer a wide range of unique wedding rings, and one of them is bound to be a perfect fit.

    Something Old, Something New…

    Probably the most well-known wedding superstition involves the old English rhyme ‘something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue’. But do you know what it means? Each of these items represents something and the bride has to wear one charm related to each.

    ‘Something old’ means that the bride has to wear something that symbolises her old life. The phrase ‘Something new’ stands for the happy future the couple is going to have. Also, ‘Something borrowed’ usually involves borrowing something from a happily married couple so that the newlyweds can get some of their good luck. Finally, ‘something blue’ stands for fidelity.

    Watch Who You Borrow Your Wedding Jewellery From

    In line with the previous entry, some brides are very mindful of who they borrow their wedding jewellery from. While most borrow the accessories they are going to wear on their wedding day from friends and family, superstitious brides warn that you should only borrow jewellery from someone in an established, happy marriage.

    Dropping The Ring is Dooming the Marriage

    A superstition dating back to folklore, dropping the ring during the ceremony is believed to be a bad omen. Moreover, this superstition also states that the one who dropped the ring will be the first in the couple to die! Morbid, isn’t it?

    On the other hand, if the ring drops on its own, the groom should put it back on. This will help drive off the evil spirits that caused the ring to drop in the first place.

    Pearls Represent the Tears of the Bride

    There are different accounts involving this superstition. While some believe that the pearls represent the future tears of the bride, others indicate that the pearls will replace those tears and signify a happy marriage.

    Never Gift a Watch

    While many grooms enjoy receiving a vintage, mechanical watch, in many cultures doing so is a bad idea. A tradition originating in Europe states that a watch given as a gift to the couple signifies that the time is running out on their relationship. This likely has to do with the fact that timepieces signify the passing of time, which is never good for something that should last ‘until death does you part’.

    You Shouldn’t See Each Other Before the Wedding

    We’ll wrap this article up with another well-known superstition saying that the bride and the groom shouldn’t see each other before the wedding because it brings bad luck. In fact, this superstition was born from the similar old tradition that the groom shouldn’t see the bride before the wedding. And the reason for that is so that he doesn’t change his mind.

    Somehow this tradition evolved into a superstition involving bad luck. In reality, lots of couples spend time before the wedding together. However, grooms should still try not to see the bride in her wedding dress. Not because of tradition or superstition, but because their first glimpse at their wife-to-be is something they cannot fake in the wedding photos!
