    Sinderella fold up Bridal Shoes

    Those fabulous wedding shoes may look amazing when you walk up the aisle but by the time your first dance comes around you may be staggering rather than strutting your funky stuff on the dance floor.

    This is where Sinderella fold up bridal shoes are an absolute must. I always take a pair to weddings for those brides whose Jimmy Choos are starting to pinch and a night out in heels is a no go without a pair of fold up shoes in my bag.

    Coming in a handy bag and small enough to tuck away in a smallish handbag, they make a welcome change from the barefoot walking I have done after many a night out and on many a wedding dance floor.

    With different styles to choose from, there is a pair to suit everyone. I was sent the New York gold and white ballerina flat to try out on our model, my daughter Olivia, a slightly reluctant bride at 14 but hey my wedding dress doesn’t fit me any more and she wanted pocket money 🙂

    Love the gold metallic shimmer and the cute gold bow. It contrasts perfectly against the soft white of the rest of the shoe. Even my grumpy teen said they were comfy and “looked nice with the wedding dress”. High praise indeed!

    Even the back of the shoes have gold detailing on the heels, so you don’t need to compromise style for comfort. You can see how easily they fold up as soon as you take them off.

    I love the Sinderella fold up bridal shoes and they are so cute I might be persuaded to dust my heels off, just so I have an excuse to show these off at the end of the night.

    Top Wedding Stationery Trends for 2015/2016

    Today we have some wedding prettiness to share with you courtesy of wedding stationer, Nikki Ward, of Knots and Kisses. She is sharing the top wedding stationery trends for 2015/2016 with us, so if you need invitation inspiration, then look no further. Over to you Nikki.

    As a wedding stationer I’m always being asked what my top wedding trends are for wedding stationery this year. Whilst I’m a firm believer in your wedding reflecting you and your partner, I also appreciate that couples want a wedding that is on trend as well. So here are my top trends for this year.

    Top Wedding Stationery Trends for 2015/2016

    PAINTED FLOWERS

    Watercolour and painted effects and finishes are bang on trend at the moment. This can be an all over effect on the background of the invitation, the style of the font … but more and more in floral details.

    In my Pretty Pastels range I’ve added a painted floral motif in the corners of the invitation and matched this with cute pastel belly bands in either lilac, pink or lemon.

    DARK BOHEMIAN

    I’ve found lots of clients over the last 6 months looking for darker wedding invitations as a bit of an antidote to the traditional white and pastels you find in wedding stationery. In the same way that there is an interiors trend for grey walls. I’ve combined a slate grey background and dark plum colours in my Midnight Rose range for those that want florals but with a darker bohemian feel.

    SHADES OF BLUE

    There’s definitely a massive swing towards shades of blue in weddings this year which I see continuing into next. Not an ‘obvious’ wedding colour its proving incredibly popular and lots of clients are asking for shades of navy, teal or duck egg incorporated into their wedding stationery.

    I think blue can look incredibly beautiful paired with crisp white or shades of grey and green and is versatile as it can look strikingly modern. Or put together with twine and hessian for gorgeously rustic.

    My Tuscany range shows how to use Blue to give a Mediterranean feel.

    LACE EMBELLISHMENT

    Lace as always continues to be a popular embellishment. Although I think for the next year it will be used in a more elegant rather than rustic way. The last few years have seen a lot of lace on top of hessian. I think going forward we are going to be looking at more subtle lace embellishments such as the thin lace ribbon I use to tie up my Victorian Garden range with a small monogrammed tag.

     Thankyou to Nikki for her fab inspiration. I love the dark bohemian range. Such a lover of strong colour.

    Choreographed First Dance – Footloose Friday

    The first dance. The first “public appearance” to the world at large as a married couple. Often a daunting prospect. Something to endure. To get through and then get drunk afterwards. How about a choreographed first dance? Is that more daunting or does it make it easier? If you have practiced a routine together and know the moves off my heart, maybe you will be more relaxed and have fun.

    There are plenty of organisations out there that offer wedding dance classes, so that you are well prepared for the big event. For the exhibitionists out there or the fun loving, dance fiends it is also an excuse to show off those skills. It’s their time to shine. You may have some signature shapes that you can throw into a routine that friends and family know only too well from previous family bashes.

    You may just need a helping hand to build up a bit of confidence so you are not worrying about tripping up or standing on each other’s toes.

    Whether you seek professional help or not, it is always worth having a brief chat about what you intend to do. Even if you just throw a twirl into the shuffle, it will go down a storm with your guests. The more effort you put in, the bigger the wow factor for you and everyone at your wedding.

    A choreographed first dance can be a real talking point for your guests. it can be a great way to kick off the party.

    So you could go for a traditional slow routine, or something fun and up tempo, like this couple did for their dance routine. Who doesn’t like Footloose?

    Well I don’t know about you but I am definitely ready to get Footloose on the nearest dance floor. What will you be doing for your first dance? I would love to hear from you.

    Valentines Day – Valentines Verse and Gifts

    Do you need a bit of help with a Valentines verse or gift?  Do you know what you are buying for your loved one? Do you know what you intend to write in that card? Is it all just a bit too much stress on top of wedding preparations?  Well today we have teamed up with Interflora to share some statistics that may make you realise you are definitely not alone.

    Do you struggle to put your romantic thoughts into words?  If you do, you may be interested to hear that you’re not alone!  A recent survey conducted by Interflora found that 53% of people in the UK struggled with penning their romantic thoughts.

    Valentines verse and gifts survey for love me love my wedding

    They also discovered that sending love letters appeared to be a dying art, with 43% of people saying they haven’t sent one for several years!  The rise of modern technology could be to blame, with many people preferring to express their love for that special someone by phone or social media instead.

      Valentines verse and gifts romantic  words methods for love me love my wedding

    The survey also revealed the best (and worst) Valentine’s Day presents that women have ever received, with kitchen appliances and badly chosen underwear being amongst the worst presents.  Gents, we think it’s best to stay safe and stick to the classic jewellery or flowers as a gift for your loved one!

      Valentines verse and gifts for love me love my wedding

    To try and change these habits and to help the nation with expressing their innermost feelings, Interflora have been challenging people to craft a beautifully thought-through Valentines verse that truly expresses their emotions.  The ‘Verses for My Valentine’ challenge has culminated in the collation of the ‘Little E-Book of Romantic Verse’ which they hope will inspire the nation to craft their own perfect message for their Valentine.

    Valentines verse and gifts romantic letters for love me love my wedding

    If you’re looking for inspiration for your own romantic Valentines verse, why not look to the nation’s favourite romantic poem: Sonnet 18 by William Shakespeare.

     “Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?

    Thou art more lovely and more temperate:

    Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,

    And summer’s lease hath all too short a date”

    Valentines verse and gifts romantic silhouette for love me love my wedding

    Now that’s for the true romantic, but if you prefer something with a bit more humour and a lot less hearts and flowers how about something like this:-

    Some say it with kisses, some say it with hugs.

    I say it with bacon butties and hot, sweet tea in mugs.

    You get up with the kids and leave me to lie in.

    I sometimes do the washing, you do the ironing.

    I could be more romantic and maybe you could too.

    Our love is practicality; it works for me and you.

    We know each other’s flaws, there’s no need to pretend.

    We are the closest allies, you are my closest friend.

    I know that maybe sometimes, I don’t say it enough,

    I just assume you know it and forget romantic stuff.

    So I have wrote this verse, for you my Valentine,

    To show you that I love you with just a simple rhyme.

    Emma Jones @emstevie For my husband Dustain 

    There you have it. Lots of inspiration to pen the perfect Valentines verse and sweep your loved one off their feet. Happy Valentine’s Day!
