Loving… Alison Lou “Mrs” Wedding Rings

I saw these Alison Lou “Mrs” wedding rings over on The Cut and think that they are fabulous, for those wanting something a bit different! They can be customised with your married name initial and can come in 14 carat white gold, rose gold or yellow gold. The stone can be a black or white diamond, ruby, sapphire or emerald!

The Cut

They are $950 which is around £630, so not a bad price for a wedding ring. What do you think? Do you like them, or are they a bit much for you? I think I would quite like one as well as a more traditional wedding ring (greedy I know!) so that I could wear it sometimes for the right occasion xx

Wedding Table Runners

My brides and other clients are always asking for ideas to make their tables look special. One great way of doing this is by using fabulous table runners and I thought I would share some inspiration with you today.

What do you think of these table runner ideas? Which is your favourite? I love the faux fur table runner and the floral ones the most… but they are all pretty special! x

Loving… The Veil

We love a veil here at Temple Gregory and wanted to see what you thought. I think they are like Marmite with many brides – when tried on you either love or hate. I would definitely recommend that you at least try one – just so you know for sure, as I have seen lots of brides change their minds as soon as they put it on!

I think the Duchess of Cambridge has played a big part in the recent growth in popularity after looking so gorgeous in hers.

Kate Moss’s veil was also really pretty and what Kate does…

Crystal Garcia

In ancient Rome the veil was worn and was usually red or another bright colour – this was to conceal the bride from the evil spirits that would otherwise be attracted to her. It is also said that in medieval times, the veil was used to protect the bride from “the evil eye” whilst also being a symbol of purity, chastity, and modesty.

Locally Made

It is also considered bad luck for the bride to be seen by the groom before the ceremony and in the old days of marriage by purchase, the groom first saw his wife to be when he unveiled her during the ceremony! Thank goodness times have changed! Today a veil is more about style and sometimes modesty for the ceremony – but not usually evil spirits.

They come in all sorts of lengths, shapes and fabrics so here is a bit of inspiration for you.

What do you think – are you a lover or a hater? Will you be wearing one for your wedding? x

Loving… Elvis & Priscilla

I came across this fabulous photo of Elvis and Priscilla Presley on their wedding day (on Casarei) and just loved it. They both look so happy and so gorgeous – timeless!

Have a lovely Thursday and I will be back soon 🙂 x

Loving… Stripy Weddings

As all of you fashionistas will know, stripes are currently cool! They are not usually the first thing to spring to mind when designing a wedding, but I just wanted to show you how touches can look great in any scheme.

The bride below looks just amazing and those shoes… I love them! To see the rest of this wedding please click here.

This is such a pretty, colourful wedding and the striped bridesmaids dresses look fab! To see the rest click here.

You could go the whole hog and have a striped wedding dress?!

Poptastic Bride

Striped ribbon around your bouquet is a lovely idea. It can be done in any colour and does not always have to be as bold as on the photo shown below.

Love these stripy napkins, from a wine tasting hen party shoot – for more click here.

So if you are now inspired to go stripy, just remember not to go too over the top and have striped everything!

Loving… This Amazing Proposal Video!

I recently came across this most amazing proposal video that I have ever seen, over on fab blog Bridal Musings, and just had to have it on my blog! I have watched it several times and still cry each time at the end!

Ok, so not all of our men are this romantic, but is still nice to watch! Perhaps this should be shown to younger men as part of their education?!

Loving… Ghost Chairs

I am not usually one for anything too modern looking, but have surprised myself lately by actually rather loving these Ghost style chairs when used at weddings – at the right venue of course!

Seen on Couture Bowl

Ghost chairs come from French designer Philippe Starck, who has been referred to as “the most cherished designer in the world”.

Seen on One Stylish Bride

We are having Ghost chairs at one of my November weddings this year and I think it will go perfectly with the venue and the overall design concept.

Seen on Trend Setting Wedding

These chairs would not look right in all venues or as part of any design concept so just remember that if considering this type of chair.

From Exhibit Hire

It may be that they would suit your ceremony location but not your wedding breakfast room, or vice versa? If this is the case then just go with the room it does suit – don’t worry that you need the same chairs throughout.

Seen on Bride Sophisticate

So if you think this will suit you and your venue – go ahead and be brave – chair covers are over done and there are lots of fabulous alternatives.
