First Anniversary { On the Clock }

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 06:01:58 +0000

Your first anniversary is an incredibly special one. If you were wondering what to get your better half to celebrate this wonderful time in your lives, you’ll be happy to know that there’s actually a “traditional” gift to mark this momentous occasion. Back in earlier days, paper was generally the go-to gift for a first anniversary. However nowadays the modern gift of choice is a clock! Signifying the passing of town, clocks can make the ideal “theme” for this big celebration – here’s how you can be creative about it: Scour the second-hand shops for a pocket watch that he […]

The First Dance { Lesson Tips }

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 07:22:28 +0000

Your first dance as husband and wife is incredibly special, but can also be quite daunting. This is especially so if dancing isn’t something you do on a regular basis. Getting dance lessons can therefore be an excellent idea, not to mention an excellent way to spend time together during the stressful planning stage. When choosing a dance instructor, it’s important to first have a rough idea of the style of dance you’d like to learn, since certain instructors tend to specialise in particular dances. Will it be something traditional and romantic like a waltz or a foxtrot, or are […]

Ahoy, lovelies! { Ship Theme }

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 08:04:32 +0000

If you’re passionate about the ocean and all things ship-related, then this theme has your name written all over it! Get shipped away on a wave of emotion, and make ships an integral part of your special day. Instead of a traditional land-based wedding, consider taking your reception to the sea! Rent a boat for the day, and take your guests on an epic and memorable journey. Shake things up in the photo booth, by building a frame with a portal for guests to peep through for the photo. Incorporate cute little sea puns in your wedding day stationery, and […]

Journey of Love { Maps Theme }

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 04:32:54 +0000

Maps are synonymous with adventure and world travel. And boy, what an adventure you’re about to embark on! If you’re both travellers at heart, maps are the perfect way to demonstrate your love of foreign places. While you really shouldn’t be cutting up your grandfather’s old map, you’ll most likely stumble across map books in second hand stores that will do just fine. Make table runners out of old maps, and stain it with tea to give it an even more antique-ish look. Turn an old map into your “guest book”, by letting guests write their words of wisdom all […]

Mon, 17 Oct 2016 06:56:47 +0000

Elegant, stylish, opulent and a little playful – that’s how you could summarise this deliciously divine colour scheme. Yellow and white have long since been a favourite colour scheme among brides. The addition of gold however elevates this combination to a whole new level of sophistication. When applying this colour scheme, don’t be afraid to go all out – don’t hold back!

Biscuit Basics { Sweet Treats }

Fri, 14 Oct 2016 06:15:25 +0000

You get two types of people in this world: Cake people and biscuit people. If you fall into the second category, then forget wedding cake for just a second! Biscuits are delicious, adored by almost-all, and highly versatile, and nowadays there are so many ways to inquorate these simple but yummy treats into your wedding day. Bake a bride and a groom shaped cookie and use that instead of a traditional cake topper. Write your names and wedding date on the cookies, and serve it instead of wedding cake. Personalise the wedding biscuits with your guests’ names and use these […]

Something Fishy { Live Centrepieces }

Thu, 13 Oct 2016 07:42:02 +0000

The fishbowl has been applied in many interesting ways over the years – from holding flowers to serving candy. However, when has a fishbowl ever been used as a fishbowl? If you love animals and adore googly eyed fishies, then this post is just for you. Live fish swimming around in a fishbowl can be quite intriguing to watch. Placed in the middle of a round table, they make quite the centre piece and add a little “life” to your décor. What’s more, you can adorn the bowl with interesting aquarium trinkets and “décor” that’s in line with your wedding […]

H2O to Go { Water Favours }

Wed, 12 Oct 2016 07:41:02 +0000

There’s nothing worse than arriving at a wedding in the dead of summer, feeling parched after a long trip. It’s therefore essential that you see to your guests’ needs as they arrive at the wedding venue, by setting out a large quantity of bottled water to quench their thirst. Bottled water is something that most venues offer, but this is an excellent place to add your own personal touch! Nowadays custom printed labels are the way to go – and why stop at wine bottles? If you have a wedding monogram, consider branding your water bottles accordingly. If you’re handing […]

Crochet Away! { Wedding Gowns }

Tue, 11 Oct 2016 09:24:31 +0000

Do you feel like you were born in the wrong era? Well then, a crochet wedding gown might be just the thing to complete your wedding day. This trend is right up the alley of boho beauties and nostalgic nymphs. One option is to go for a floor-length crochet dress that encapsulates old world style. Alternatively, consider wearing a simple white sheath dress with a loose-knot crochet dress over it. Bear in mind that crochet is a very particular style and might not work with more stylish and elegant wedding day themes.  It’s therefore essential that the crochet element be […]

Navy + Fuchsia { Best of Both }

Mon, 10 Oct 2016 06:37:20 +0000

Boy oh boy! Are you in for a delicious treat! Today’s colour scheme is equal parts girl-and-boy, striking the perfect his-and-hers balance. We just love how outrageously dramatic this colour scheme is, and the combination is ideal for both summer and winter weddings. If you’re wondering how to go about combining the two, we’ve got some ideas: Deck your guest tables in heavy navy blue table cloths, and add touches of fuchsia glassware to really make it pop. These two colours translate beautifully into a striking candy buffet, complete with blue “gobstoppers” and fuchsia candyfloss. Bathe the venue in navy […]
