Time for a dose of super pretty, my lovelies! Embrace your feminine sides and indulge your most floral of fancies with this divine theme from our gorgeous couple Sally and Matt. Today’s ideas are liberally stolen from their castle wedding featured on the blog last week. I love them – and I know you will too! Here’s how to get the look:
1. Fabulously feminine florals
Sally and her best girls held mixed bouquets with colours which came together beautifully: dahlias are a key floral trend for this year, and by mixing them with plenty of roses in ivory, pale and hot pink Sally’s florist Kim at the The Flower House Studio (http://www.theflowerhouse.biz/ ) created a super pretty bouquet. Use eucalyptus and allium buds for texture and finish off with a lace ribbon – these flowers will smell as divine as they look!
Top tip: Don’t be afraid to mix up your flowers. The more colours, shapes and textures – and the more creative freedom you allow your florist – the better!
2. Delicate lace, timeless style and shades of white
Bring in accessories which won’t detract from the overall style of your day. Matt and Sally’s card basket was a white wicker hamper – very soft and subtle. Flowers nearby ensured the table display was super pretty and in keeping with the theme of the day.
Sally wore a beautiful dress with lace overlay – and oh, those wonderful little sleeves! – and Matt’s suit is sophisticated and classic. Even the cake has a lace embellishment to work with the lace theme, and tiny flowers to colour match the florals on the day.
Top tip: tuck flowers into your hair, whether you’re wearing it up or down. It’s the one time of your life you’ll get away with fresh flowers in your ‘do’ and everyone will say how lovely they look!
3. Get krafty with your stationery and table styling
Sally and Matt used kraft card for most of their stationery. Table names are super simple – you can recreate these with a kraft base (from www.eco-craft.co.uk) and simple printed paper overlays.
The typewriter font continues onto the ‘Who’s Who’ of the day – and I love how Sally and Matt incorporated a splash of colour with their heart design. The signature cocktails menu looks fab printed in a similar colour, and has pride of place on a dinky table easel. LOVE!
