Who’s day is it, again?


A little while ago, someone said to me ‘my biggest fear for the day is that people won’t like my choices, that someone will say that they don’t like the colours, or the flowers, or the dress I chose’.


Of course, I reassured her that everything was beautiful and it would all be fine.

Seriously, though. What is it about weddings that turns an otherwise intelligent, sensible person in to an insane, insecure mess?! There speaks a woman who has spent far too long reading wedding magazines and watching Don’t Tell The Bride, and who has convinced herself that this stuff is important.

You’ve decided you want a wedding. Traditional, vintage, beach, barn.. whatever. You’ve chosen that because that’s what you want, right? And then you picked all the other stuff that you thought was ‘you’, that was your style? So, you like what you’ve chosen? What else matters?

Have confidence in your choices. Choose what you love and move on to more important matters – like sampling cake. Oh, and looking forward to spending the rest of your life with the one you love. Obviously.

PS. Why did you invite anyone who would criticise you, anyway? Just sayin’.


If the shoe fits

Ballet, kitten heel, high heel, skyscraper – whatever you choose to wear on your wedding day, make sure the shoe fits you – wear what suits your feet and your soul, wear what you feel good in.

(The images for this post could have gone on for-ev-ah.  So many shoes, so little time.)

Drool. Shoes are a great way to add a splash of colour.

Wedges are a great alternative to high heels, if you want some height without the teetering.

Yum.  Just..yum.

More your style?

How ’bout some hot flatties?

There’s a girl that lives by her own rules.

  Tip:  Have a spare pair of shoes for the evening, even if it’s just another pair of heels – your feet will appreciate the change.  Or just kick them off and dance, girl! 

Have you got any tips to share?

Signs of love

How cute?

The appetite for signs used in weddings doesn’t seem to be waning at all. And it’s no surprise, with brides finding more and more lovely ways to use them to beautiful effect.  If you have a creative streak (or a creative friend!), this is also a potentially very-cheap-to-make touch, too.  All you need is a canvas, some paint and a bit of imagination. 

Do you like this idea?
