Feathered Fairy { Wedding Gowns }

Wed, 26 Apr 2017 08:41:24 +0000

Feathered everything is a trend as old as the Gatsby style, if not older – and we love the fact that it keeps making come-backs at the most unexpected times. Feathered wedding gowns might not be every bride’s cup of tea, but it’s certainly worth considering if you have a bubbly and flamboyant spirit. For starters, you can opt for a full-blown feathered skirt. This is ideal for the skinny brides with a long and lean torso, but it’s also perfect for concealing wide hips. Then again, if a full skirt from the waist down isn’t really for you, why […]

Change Your Stripes { Zebra Theme }

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 11:06:44 +0000

Whether you’ve lost or found your heart in Africa, this theme is definitely for you! Zebra stripes are as authentically African as, well, zebras – and décor designers around the world are turning this natural pattern on its head. Break away from the traditional wedding colours and elements, and add a dash of African spirit to your most beautiful day: Add small touches of zebra print to your table décor. Think zebra print table runners, napkins or place cards. Incorporate zebra print into your stationery designs. Even a small patch of zebra fabric can change the entire look of a […]

White, Silver & Rose Gold { Clean + Contemporary }

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 07:51:27 +0000

The rules say “choose a metal and stick with it” – but don’t we always advocate breaking the rules on occasion? Well, when you see this striking and elegant colour scheme, you’re bound to throw the rule book out the window, because rose gold, silver and white is certainly the epitome of contemporary style and elegance. In order to pull off this colour scheme without creating visual chaos, it’s important to identify your most dominant metallic colour. White will naturally form your base colour, and then it’s up to you to layer up the metallic – making sure to use […]

3-Dimentional Drama { Wedding Invitations }

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 06:55:23 +0000

3D is a term we hear a lot of in this digital day and age, but today’s post has nothing to do with technology (well, maybe a little if you consider the processes involved). This time around we’re exploring the wonders of paper – the many sides, folds and colours of this simple but versatile stationery element. The idea behind 3D invitations is literally to add another dimension to the guest’s experience. The first way to do this would be to create pop-up invitations, where a 3D picture literally pops out as you open the card. Think of the cute […]

Perfect Plumes { Peacock Feathers }

Thu, 20 Apr 2017 08:44:39 +0000

You’re bright, you’re bold and you love a spot of colour! Peacock feathers have your name written all over it, and we just adore the sense of opulence it lends to the wedding day. More than just feathers, these simple yet striking décor elements will also dictate the colour scheme for your wedding day, blending bright shades of indigo, violet and emerald to create a visual feast. Use peacock feathers for the boutonnieres, and add a handful to your own bridal bouquet. For the place cards, tie a card with the guest’s name around a peacock feather and lay it […]

To Infinity { Wedding Gowns }

Wed, 19 Apr 2017 06:44:17 +0000

You’ve heard all about the infinity bridesmaid dress, but have you given any thought to an infinity wedding dress? This is the perfect option for a bride who wants to be extra comfortable on her wedding day, and have the freedom to chop and change her dress as she pleases. Infinity dresses come in a variety of lengths and sizes, and can be made from many different fabrics. What’s more, it’s usually a lot more affordable than your average wedding gown, and gives you the freedom to customise the dress without paying for alterations. An infinity wedding dress is especially […]

Gemstone Blue + Cotton Candy { Pretty Pastels }

Tue, 18 Apr 2017 06:39:29 +0000

When it comes to choosing a colour scheme for your wedding, you can never go wrong with pastels. Cotton candy and lovely gemstone blue are two shades that were practically made to live and love side by side. From a more conventional perspective, it also ticks the “girl meets boy” checkbox, representing both the guy and girl side of the relationship. Hire a cotton candy machine, and let your guests indulge in an endless supply of sweet delicious fluffs. Further to this, decorate your cocktails and wedding cake with tufts of moreish cotton candy. When it comes to flowers, choose […]

Egg-ceptional! { Easter Favours }

Wed, 12 Apr 2017 06:30:52 +0000

The holidays are a popular time for weddings – most of your guests are off from work, and travelling from afar becomes far less of a hassle. However if you’re planning a wedding over the Easter holidays, you have a certain responsibility to your guests to ensure that they have a happy Easter celebration – especially if they can’t be with their families due to the wedding. Easter guest favours are the ideal way to make them feel special, and to make the most of this special holiday! We’re currently smitten with chocolate eggs, speckled eggs and bunnies in all […]

Mon, 10 Apr 2017 06:16:56 +0000

Alluring, elegant and incredibly striking – this colour scheme is one of a kind, and you simply can’t go wrong with the magical combination that is burgundy, ivory and brown. Doesn’t it just remind you of decadent chocolate cake covered it dollops of cream and cherries? Well, this colour scheme is just as decadent, that’s for sure! Dress the groomsmen in shades of burgundy and grown, perhaps with ivory waistcoats or shirts to round it off. Instead of a traditional white wedding gown, opt for an ivory gown with hints of burgundy and brown for added drama. For confetti, mix […]
