Purple + Gold { Pure Opulence }

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 07:05:01 +0000

We haven’t really been making a secret of the fact that we love gold! This time around we say, bring on the purple too – because this regal combination is guaranteed to make you feel like royalty on your special day. Think bold and bright – draping your tables in purple with gold table runners. Then again, why not go all out with gold chairs and candelabra, and purple mood lighting? The goal is to really make a statement and wow your guests, so leave no stone unturned. Purple also works beautifully alongside white, so you don’t have to compromise […]

Gold is Glorious { Metallic Weddings }

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 05:49:36 +0000

Gold… synonymous with opulence, magic and luxury – all the elements of a wow wedding! Gold comes in many different shades and colours, and there are so many ways to coat your big day in this shimmering colour. We’re virtually obsessed with glitter gowns at the moment, whether it’s wedding dresses or bridesmaid gowns. Think top to toe gold glitter, or intricate gold patterns crisscrossing across your dress. Alternatively complete your white ensemble with a pair of gold shoes! In terms of décor, the options are endless! Switch your ordinary white chairs for gold seats, and cover the tables in […]

Embrace the Bling { Sequined Gowns }

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 08:03:49 +0000

It’s no secret that we love all things sparkling! Sparkling wine, sparkling glassware and, now also, sparkling dresses. Sequin wedding gowns are all the rage at the moment, and we love the fact that brides are embracing the opportunity to go all out on their wedding day. After all, when’s the next time you’ll have an excuse to sparkle from top to toe? If you like the idea of sparkle but you’d still like to keep it traditional, white sequins are just what you’re looking for. While the dress will look traditionally white at first glance, it will light up […]

Made for Men { Guest Favours }

Fri, 11 Aug 2017 09:15:41 +0000

Guys can act girly and girls can like guy things – but sometimes you want to spoil your male and female guests with something that they’d appreciate more than just a general treat. So, hubby to be, why not hit the shops and get your buddies a treat they’d actually appreciate? Chocolates are for everyone… especially whisky or brandy infused chocolates! A mini engraved hipflask – especially perfect for the honourary men. If you want all the men to look a certain way, why not treat them with bowties? Give them each a bottle opener, with your wedding date or […]

The Ultimate Wedding Checklist: Part 3

Thu, 10 Aug 2017 06:56:18 +0000

Eek! With only 9 months to go, the excitement (and nerves) are surely mounting. We’re half way through our wedding checklist series, and we’re getting super excited just thinking about the fact that your wedding date is getting closer. On a serious note, this can be a stressful time for you and your partner. Consider joining a regular yoga or gym class. And remember to take plenty of ‘planning breaks’, where you don’t give the wedding any thought for a couple of days. It’s easy to get caught up in the hype of planning – trust us, we know ALL […]

Jar Half Full { Guest Favours }

Mon, 07 Aug 2017 10:00:14 +0000

When you think of versatility, the one thing that always comes to mind is a jar. It’s reusable, recyclable and affordable to acquire – whether you buy new jars or ask everyone in the neighbourhood to save their jam empties. We especially love using jars for guest favours, since it’s easy to personalise for male and female guests. Here are a few things you can put inside: Bath salts, bubble bath and pampering oils for the lovely ladies. Chocolates, cookies, marshmallows, mini cakes, fudge and other homemade treats. A dry pre-mix for your favourite brownies, muffins or cake. Homemade chocolate […]

Gold Dust { Pure Opulence }

Mon, 07 Aug 2017 08:44:37 +0000

Magic. That’s what this theme is all about. Think gold dust scattered across everything and everyone. Yes, we’re not stopping at décor here! Gold dust naturally adds a sense of whimsy to any occasion. Scatter gold dust all over your guest tables, and add plenty of candles to light it up. Cover yourself in a light sprinkling of gold dust – only visible in the afternoon sunshine and under the glimmering dance floor lights. Opt for a wedding cake covered in edible gold dust as well as macaroons and petit fours – too lovely for words. Spoil your guests with […]

Please Halt! { Halter Neck Gowns }

Wed, 02 Aug 2017 12:09:46 +0000

Halter necks are an excellent solution for brides who want the sexiness of a strapless dress, but who can’t go strapless for whatever reason. Unlike back in the day when a halter was a halter, nowadays there are various styles of halter to choose from. We’re especially smitten with the high neck halter line, where the entire chest area is covered in delicate lace or sheer fabric paneling, covering you up to your neck. An important factor to bear in mind is that a halter style generally draws attention to your shoulders – and in some instances can make them […]

Shimmer + Shine { Foil Cakes }

Mon, 31 Jul 2017 06:26:50 +0000

The first time someone suggested foiling wedding invitations, you probably thought “no, foil belongs in the kitchen” – but you soon fell in love with it just like the rest of us. Now we’re talking about foil wedding cakes and you’re probably thinking “that doesn’t sound right!” but bear with us, because once you’ve seen it, you won’t be able to fall out of love with it. It’s no surprise that we’re in love with all things shiny and glittery, and foil cakes fall neatly into this category. The foil-look for wedding cakes is very high on the must-have list, […]

Blush + Plum { Delicate Drama }

Mon, 24 Jul 2017 06:21:04 +0000

Plum (and shades thereof) is without a doubt one of the top colours of the season, and we’ve been in love with the different ways in which brides and décor experts have been applying it. One of our favourite colour schemes is the dramatically contrasted plum and blush. Balancing the soft with the deep, this colour combination embodies sophistication and femininity unlike any other. Opt for a mix of deep plum and blush coloured roses, peonies, daisies and other pretties. Instead of a crisp white wedding dress, why not break tradition with a soft pink one? Clothe your bridesmaids in […]
