    Wedding Planning – Themed Weddings

    Whilst we can all enjoy a highly traditional wedding with the bride in white and the groom in top hat and tails, there is definitely more than one way to get married. And the rise of themed weddings in particular has been grabbing headlines across the internet recently.   Whether it’s just for fun, or providing a chance for the lucky couple to share a particularly poignant interest, a themed wedding is a great way to let you and your loved ones dress up like superheroes, play dazzling casino games, and even indulge in the most bittersweet of fairytales!

    Fairytale weddings

    As weddings are often the most dream-like day of our lives, it can be a great idea to ramp up the fantasy aspect by having a fairytale themed wedding.   Not only will it provide you with the perfect opportunity to dress up like Snow White, but you can have lots of fun accessorising with motifs such as magic mirrors, poisoned apples and other emblems straight out of one of Grimm’s Fairytales.

    Las Vegas romance

    Whilst many couples may have been tempted to elope to Sin City for a quick wedding, the reality is that the cost can be prohibitive, and the chances are your relatives will never forgive you.   So a Las Vegas themed wedding can provide the perfect alternative. And this can be relatively easily done with some decadent cocktails, trashy American Pulp Fiction inspired fashions and burgers on the wedding menu. And if you wish to give it a 21st century twist, then Betway’s online casino can provide the perfect entertainment by offering games ranging from roulette to slots that can deliver all of the Vegas excitement without the jetlag!

    Superhero weddings

    With the rise of Marvel comic book characters dominating our movies screens, it’s no surprise that we’ve seen the steady growth of superhero characters appearing at weddings too. Although seeing your loved one dressed up as Batman may not instantly seem like the most romantic of ideas, it will undoubtedly help ease your wedding day nerves!   And of course, with such a decision it’s always important to consider all of the wedding guests, in particular be sure to consult the groom’s mother as to whether she really wants to dress up as Wonder Woman?

    Hollywood weddings

    Films in general have provided the inspiration behind many themed weddings, with many romantic blockbusters providing a great narrative for your wedding day. Of course, romance doesn’t have to be the central theme, as success has also been found in Back To The Future themed weddings, and James Bond and Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale could also provide another exciting and glamorous duo for your wedding inspiration.

    Wedding Inspiration Studio 54 Deaf Institute

    Today we are getting funky with some wedding inspiration Studio 54 style. For those who don’t know, Studio 54 was the hippest, hottest, grooviest nightclub in New York in the 1970s. Bianca Jagger once rode a horse through the club. Andy Warhol and Jerry Hall were regulars. it was the last bastion of glamour and sophistication, with just enough debauchery to keep it interesting. So what better theme for a wedding?

    Take one funky venue in Manchester. The Deaf Institute is the ultimate in cool. Crazy décor, tongue in cheek posters, a great cocktail list. It’s a great club and music venue that can also host your wedding breakfast.

    Wedding Themes – Pretty Paisley Patterns

    So yesterday I share my favourite gowns from Eliza Jane Howell’s Grand Opera Collection 2016. If you didn’t see if click here. One of the gorgeous dresses had a distinctive paisley design and I thought it would be apt to share some paisley wedding inspiration. It is very versatile. It can come in any colour and works really well with a country or vintage themed wedding. So here it is pretty paisley patterns.

    Ninth Events Fantasy Wedding – Wedding Planning

    We’ve had a bit of a gap since our last fantasy wedding instalment but we’re back with a beauty from luxury wedding and event planners Ninth Events. Specialising in events in Manchester and London Lucy has 10 years worth of wedding experience to draw on. So over to Ninth Events to share their ultimate wedding.

    Ninth Events Fantasy Wedding

    Now after being a wedding planner for almost 10 years, this is like answering the 60 million dollar question!!  Over the years I’ve created so many perfect days for my clients that have meant something special to them all. I take a very professional, but warming approach to each and every one, because I am only human after all. 

    So to really answer this question properly, I have to try and bring it all back to my own personality and not get over influenced with what my clients have chosen, the latest trends and what’s hot right now!

     So, what would I want?  I’ve seen quite a few venues in my time and as lovely as they all have been, I think a simple sandy beach would do it for me in Bali or somewhere of the sorts, at sunset, in bare feet.

      Ninth Events Fantasy wedding bali beach wedding for love me love my wedding

    A gorgeous delicate lace dress, fitted to show off my curves, with shoe string straps, plunging back and slightly trailing on the sand would be my dream gown.  Simple in a ‘beach’ way, but stunning in a ‘this is my wedding’ way!  My man would be waiting in loose linen trousers and a crisp white shirt (in a non-Miami Vice way if he can help it!), stood on the edge of the sand with the waves gently lapping with the tide.  My hair would be wavy and tousled loose with a simple white flower tucked behind my ear.

    In my mind I just see me and my man, with my son and daughter by our sides, but equally I would love our families and true friends to be there.  So, on simple lime wash chiavari chairs they would be sat in curves behind us whilst we shared our vows and the only floral touch would be the white petals on the sand, trailing down the aisle.

    Once we did the important part, we would just want to kick back, chill out with some Champagne and eat some delicious food.  Italian would be my preference, 10 courses over 3 hours, little and often and each dish irresistible in their own right.  No speeches, we would all know why we’re there and why we just got married…nothing else to be said.  Just lots of food, drink, laughter and happiness.

    Then back to the beach after dinner for the ultimate beach party!  Music is a massive part of our lives, so loads of 80’s-90’s, motown, funk, soul and a special homage to MJ would be our guilty pleasure!  Fire pits and tiki torches would make the beach glow, with the stars in the night sky twinkling above our heads, no starcloth needed here as we’d have the real thing!  It would all be planned to perfection of course and would be so seamless and relaxed that you wouldn’t even know any planning was involved.  At the end of the day me, my husband and all of the special people with us would feel like they’ve just had the best holiday of their lives, all in one day.

      Ninth Events Fantasy wedding fire pit beach wedding for love me love my wedding

    Ahhhhhh, feel all floaty now and I find myself day dreaming…

     So there you go, mostly unconventional and against the norm, but I know I’m going for a fantasy day that would be different for me and unlike the events I plan for a living.


    Coral and Sage Wedding Inspiration

    Today I have a little bit of colour complementing wedding inspiration for you. never be afraid to mix your colours. You could go for a colour clash combination such as pink and yellow. Or opt for colours that complement each other in nature. This is where we are going today with some coral and sage wedding inspiration. Think colour pop coral and soft sage green. A perfect harmonious pairing. A bit like the perfect wedding union.

    Wedding Décor

    This colour combination really has a fresh and contemporary look. It is light with just enough of a pop of colour to create that wow factor.

    Love the sage green table cloths contrasting with the white wooden chairs and coral floral arrangements.
