We guarantee your guests will be throwing around the words pretty and fabulous, when talking about your day at the next wedding they are invited to!

Invitations and Stationary

Your guest will RSVP in record time If you go for seriously inviting stationary. It’s the first glimpse you give your nearest and dearest as to what they can expect from your big day. To give the right impression, think outside the box. So your budget doesn’t allow for bespoke invitations from an award winning supplier? We hear you. Try doing your own thing, think quirky DIY designs.

The Decor

The decor for your wedding day is an opportunity to inject a bit of your personality into proceedings, instantly making your day every bit you and unforgettable. Add some special touches such as a laser cut calligraphy cake topper, make it extra meaningful by naming your tables instead of numbering them or incorporating photos into your decor to add that finishing touch. How about DIY table scatter using pics of you and your beau?

Floral Dresses

Traditionally bridesmaids all don the same colour, but we figured some rules are made to be broken. How about putting your own spin on things? Your girl squad doesn’t have to be matchy matchy or in block colours. Go for a fresh take by sticking to the same shade of colour but mixing textures and silhouettes, trust us your maids will love you that bit more for considering their personal style. Dare to be different by channelling the enchanted garden vibe, we say go for printed floral dresses. Flower power is trending and it’s no surprise that florist are in on it. Check out Lisa of Victoria’s floral emporium and her bridesmaid looking blooming gorgeous.

Dessert tables

After throwing some serious shapes on the dance floor you could do with a snack a two and so could your guests. Sweet buffet tables can be styled according to your theme and provide your guest with extra choice which is always appreciated. The wedding cake is no longer the be all end all part of your menu. The options are endless. You could even go for a savoury table if you haven’t got much of a sweet tooth, after all it is your day! Or how about a food truck? We love the idea of an ice cream truck with a world of toppings to choose from!

Wedding Favours

Pretty and sweet wedding favours are all good but the more thoughtful and practical they are the more memorable they’ll be. Your guest will be so impressed they’ll definitely be sending out their own custom made thank you cards! Think about what you’d like as a favour because you really don’t want your guest leaving your’s on the table. Bespoke soaps, a donation to a charity that you support, flats for when the ladies have had enough of their dancing shoes or even some gourmet snacks are all crowd pleasers.
