Hasn’t Friday taken a long time to come around this week?! I’m looking forward to the weekend – and I hope you have a lovely one. Whether you’re shopping or seeing family or friends, have a great weekend. To keep you entertained in the meantime, here are my best wedding blog posts from the last couple of weeks – with thanks to WedWeekly for a couple of ideas here too!
- A fabulous real wedding in Devon: lace, feathers and DIY details
- A beautiful real wedding in Ascot – purple theme, fab bridesmaids dresses!
- Pale yellows and a summery wedding theme with glorious sunshine
- More purple – this is another gorgeous UK wedding to inspire you
- A beautiful, intimate Wiltshire wedding. Gorgeous winter sunshine and some thoughts on registrars…
- Romance at Ramster Hall and some fabulous first dance images
- A peak district wedding – and some spontaneous rock climbing in a wedding dress! This isn’t for the faint-hearted (but it’s fab!)
- A Papakata wedding – glorious!
- I love the wedding cake – and everything else! from this vintage country wedding blog
Think creative! The best UK wedding crafts and DIY ideas
- First looks at weddings – I think they’re a great idea for many reasons, but does superstition scare you off? Maybe these images will change your mind…
- Floral chandeliers… what an amazing idea. These look incredible!
- 60s mod wedding inspiration – the flowers are amazing, but they’re missing the vintage Vespa / Lambretta! Fail!? (I jest – this is a great blog post)
- I think these cool and creative wedding guest book ideas are fab!
- A little off topic, some quirky calligraphy by the magic pen of Ms Scarlet Blue – love this!
Advice and opinion – thoughts on wedding planning and more
- One in ten brides-to-be update their relationship status on facebook within minutes of getting engaged – did you? Insights into wedding planning and social media from Mashable and The Knot
- Our government made a stupid decision to make gay marriage in Church of England and Church in Wales churches illegal. Peter Tatchell’s statement explains why this can be challenged – it’s discriminating against the churches themselves, as I understand it. The debate rolls on…
- Why do we let bureaucrats decide whether gay marriage can happen in church or anywhere else… they haven’t a clue. The issue of consummation has our civil servants thoroughly confused – and this article is entertaining, especially the kitten picture and the flow chart! Enjoy 😉
- Last but not least, one of Annabel’s best: British craftsmanship and your wedding (dress) – a beautifully written piece about buying British made items for your wedding. I’d love to hear more about this, extending the discussion to accessories, shoes and menswear. I’d like to write on this subject myself too – because buying British is one thing; buying local takes it a step further.
That’s it from me for today, I hope you’ve found some entertaining links here!
Have a great day, whatever you get up to – and see you back here tomorrow.
