These flowers make me think of the seaside… the colours are magical, they’re light and dreamy… and perfect for a summer wedding. The loveliest thing about the bouquet is that it’s one you can make at home with quality silk flowers and our step by step tutorial by lovely Natasha at Pumpkin & Pye.

Where to find quality silk flowers

Artificial flowers come in all shapes and sizes, and the quality varies hugely: garden centres and home stores sell the cheapest they can get. The only way to source really lovely silk blooms is online, and Natasha recommends Afloral.com whose website is testament to the pride they take in sourcing only the very best. Do take a look at Afloral online.

How DIY are you, really? If you’ve felt the pressure to make your own wedding… [fill in the blank with pretty much anything here] – and your fingers aren’t buzzing with craftitude – then I’m here to show you there are plenty of other options out there.

Yay! wedding invitation by Style & Joy

Contrary to popular belief, making your own wedding invitations won’t necessarily save you money. If you’re photoshopping, printing at home, buying card, trimming, sticking bits on, tying with ribbon etc. you will be spending more than you think and fizzling time away as if you were never that bothered about having a social life in the first place 😉

Here’s the thing: you’d never use a ‘standard wording’ for any other letter to your friends and family. If you send letters or notecards to anyone, ever, then 1) you’re awesome! and 2) I bet they’re fun to read.

When you send your wedding invitations, don’t google ‘wedding invitation wordings’ (or worse – ‘standard invitation wordings’). In this case, Google is unintentionally evil with the results it throws back.

Contrary to what it tells you, etiquette is over.

You don’t need to follow any centuries-old rules to get your wedding invitations right!

I love meeting couples before they book, it’s exciting to hear about their plans, but it can also be a little nerve racking, a bit like going on a first date!  This first meeting is about getting to know each other and finding out if you like each other, after all, your wedding photographer will be with you for a long time on your big day.
