    52 memories for an unforgettable wedding experience

    Now I get a LOT of emails from companies with “innovative” wedding ideas and services. Some are not so original, some are downright weird and some are just inappropriate. Now recently i got an email about a fab idea from a Swiss based company 52 memories.

    The idea is based on a romantic wedding surprise tradition the founder of the company experienced in Germany myself and one that is virtually unheard of in the UK, as far as I know.

    52 memories for an unforgettable wedding experience

    For one year, 52memories will evoke the memories of the most special day in the life of two people – and makes this day unforgettable. Using the 52memories app, guests, family and friends design greeting cards with personal photos and congratulations for the wedding.

    The company then print these personal congratulations on high-quality postcards and send them to the address of the newly-weds every week during the first year of their marriage.
    So for 52 weeks, they will receive a surprise every week – on time, reliable, worldwide.

    Unique. Emotional. Tears of joy guaranteed.

    52 memories for an unforgettable wedding experience

    52memories have digitalised this idea because guests unfortunately forget to send cards after a couple of weeks… Imagine you choose the postcard to be send in week 45 ;).

    The cards are not “random postcard creatives” but designed with a self taken picture or selfie in the 52memories App.

    In the end, the guests just have to pick and save the date they want their personal card to be sent to the bridal couple.

    52memories print and ship them every week as soon as the time is right.

    I love this idea. It is such a personal and thoughtful idea. A way to banish those post wedding blues when you think all the fun of the wedding is over. you can actually prolong the whole experience for 12 months and  you never know what you are going to get. You might get something touching, a risque message from your best man, or a heartfelt message from a relative from overseas.

    Here is a short film explaining the service in a bit more detail.

    What do you think of this idea? I love it but would love to know what you think.

    Start your Christmas wedding planning now with Festive Lights

    The popularity of Christmas proposals means that couples should perhaps start wedding planning now!  Recent research by an online lighting company shows that Christmas and New Year are one of the most popular times of year for engagements. This means to secure the venue you want, you need to get planning as soon as possible. We are here today to help you start your Christmas wedding planning now with Festive Lights.

    Start your Christmas wedding planning now with Festive Lights

    Established in 1999, Festive Lights is a lighting specialist with a product portfolio spanning indoor, outdoor, functional and decorative products. Predominantly an online retailer, the Lancashire-based company also have a trade showroom and warehousing facilities in Wigan.

    To understand more about how couples plan their weddings, Festive Lights ran a survey of 1009 people in the UK. They asked those who were engaged, or were married, when the proposal had happened and whether it was on a special occasion. This revealed that the majority of proposals happen around Christmas. 33% of people said they had put a ring on it around Christmas Day and New Year. The festive period was more popular for proposals than birthdays (22%) and more than twice as popular as Valentine’s Day (15%). As a result, January sees a spike in couples beginning to plan their weddings.

    As you know, that usually means A LOT of work!

    Here are Festive Lights’ top tips on how to get a head start on your wedding:

    Book early

    The more you do at the beginning, the less stressful it will be as you reach the last few months’ approach. Securing the venue, photographer and florist are the 3 main things you need to get checked off your list, then you can move on to the finer details.

    Lock down a theme

    Festive Lights recommends creating a wedding plan. You can choose a general idea of the theme and atmosphere you want to have when you have booked your venue, after this, you can start to gather materials towards that theme as early as possible.

    Use lighting to your advantage

    When lighting is done correctly, it can create an atmosphere all on its own without the need for other expensive decorations. As day moves into night, you can transform a room, marquee or tipi into a totally different environment with lighting. In summer, create exquisite outdoor party areas to make the most of long summer nights. In winter, create cosy vibes inside that keep guests feeling warm.

    Festoon Lighting

    Ideal for every venue, festoon lighting can be used indoors and outdoors to brighten, enhance features and create a slightly retro or rustic ambience. The beauty of festoon lighting is that it is completely flexible and can fit any style of décor.

    Wrap them around trees and bushes, use them to line pathways and entrances. you can string them around the interior of a marquee. However you choose to use festoon lighting, it’s a budget friendly way to illuminate and decorate.

    Say Thankyou to your Bridesmaids with Monsoon fragrances

    So your wedding day is approaching and your bridesmaids have been there every step of the way and you naturally want to buy them a gift that will say thankyou for their help and support, but won’t break the bank. Well Monsoon have some gorgeous gift ideas that would be perfect.

    Say Thankyou to your Bridesmaids with Monsoon fragrances

    Monsoon have a great selection of fragrance gifts for your wedding party. There are delicious smelling candles. I love the bergamot and fig one. Each Monsoon 180g candle comes housed in a stunning heavy glass container, depicting an iconic Monsoon metalwork pattern. This Monsoon candle has a spicy, oriental fragrance. With notes of neroli, mandarin, bergamot, grapefruit and lemon. The heart of sun dried figs is entwined with warm ginger, cardamon, cinnamon, nutmeg and black pepper. I could actually eat it (but don’t) it sounds so good. It also has a fab burn time of 36 hours.

    There is also a reed diffuser in the same fragrance which comes in a pretty glass jar. I have this in my house and it looks and smells great.

    Rose gold is bang on trend right now, and it looks like that trend is set to continue. Monsoon have introduced an eau de parfum called Rose Gold. Top notes of sparkling lemon, soft fruit and ozonic scents are layered with velvety rose, tuberose, neroli and cyclamen, and underpinned with base notes of Eastern woods, vanilla, mosses, musk and balsamic amber. It smells as good as it sounds and the bottle is stylish enough to grace any dressing table.

    Other gifts

    If you don’t want to buy a fragrance gift I adore the peacock mirror compact at Monsoon. It is definitely on my wish list if anyone in my family is reading this!
