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!
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
