So it’s American Independence day. To get into the spirit of things with our friends across the pond I’ve put together some Independence Day Wedding Inspiration.
Independence Day Wedding Inspiration
Opt for a dress with a splash of red or royal blue for a striking yet classy nod to the 4th July celebrations.
Red, white and blue wedding stationery can look stylish and set the tone for your whole event.
Love this by A Milestone Paper Company.
The stripes in this design by Pink Piggy Design look fabulous.
You can opt for a splash of colour in your theme. Or go all out for a full in a red white and blue extravaganza.
Simple daisy chains, coloured sand or these fabulous streamer fairy lights will make a big but cost effective impact.
Fake it with silk or a brooch bouquet. Or opt for natural blooms in softer shades of red white and blue.
You could go for the surprise option of having the red white and blue on the inside of your cake. Or go for a show stopping colourful cake. Maybe wow with a cupcake tower. Or go all out with these patriotic cake pops. This is the bit where you can really show your theme’s true colours!
I love real petal confetti. The red white and blue variety by The Real Flower Petal Confetti Company is the perfect addition to any 4th July celebrations.
Happy 4th July everyone. Made it a fab one.
Today we have a lovely Coombe Lodge wedding film from Andrew McCabe Films. The wedding of Parry and Paul took place at Coombe Lodge, North Somerset. The lodge is the former home of the Wills family. It is built of Bath stone with a Cotswold stone roof. Coombe Lodge is set among 15 acres of grounds, banks and woodlands. It enjoys spectacular views over Blagdon Lake from some of its twelve luxurious bedrooms.
Coombe Lodge Wedding Film
Parry and Paul chose Bristol Wedding Videographer Andrew McCabe Films to film their wedding.
Parry prepared for her wedding day in the bridal suite.
The light gave us some wonderful moments for wedding videography. it left Parry with a priceless record of one of the most unique and exciting parts of a bride’s day.
Parry and her bridal party enjoyed champagne and chocolates while professional make up artists and hair stylists prepared them for the Groom and guests awaiting them downstairs.
Parry and Paul were married in a tasteful and touching civil ceremony conducted in Coombe Lodge’s Music Room.
The party then moved to the intimate surroundings of the Music Room, where a traditional Persian Ceremony was conducted for the couple. Afterwards the was transformed into Parry and Paul’s dining room. The light once again played host to some exquisite details.
The guests soon filled the dining room and before us unfolded some of the most touching and captivating wedding speeches and toasts we have ever witnessed. The Bride’s father Hass gave a once in a lifetime explanation of their choice to name their daughter Parry. While her nephew Josh stole the show without saying a word via an awesome anecdote from the brides brother.
In response to a heartfelt speech from her Groom, Parry soon burst into song. Accompanied by a string quartet she did a live rendition of At Last by Eta James.
There wasn’t a dry eye in the house. Parry expertly summed up not only the couple’s journey so far but also their journey together to come.
Parry and Paul’s Wedding and Wedding Film was a joy to behold. It was an honour to produce and a pleasure to share with you.
Congratulations Parry and Paul.
So you’re getting married. It’s time to set up a gift directory or address the thorny issue of gifts with your guests. Wedding gifts are a tradition symbolising guest’s good will and best wishes. How generous will your guests be? Does size actually matter? Is the thought really what counts? Well today we have a fun infographic from the team at Giftcloud, which details history’s greatest gifts. Statue of Liberty anyone?
Well I don’t know about you but some cut some crystal glasses just won’t cut it now! I want my very own city.
Today we have some wedding prettiness to share with you courtesy of wedding stationer, Nikki Ward, of Knots and Kisses. She is sharing the top wedding stationery trends for 2015/2016 with us, so if you need invitation inspiration, then look no further. Over to you Nikki.
As a wedding stationer I’m always being asked what my top wedding trends are for wedding stationery this year. Whilst I’m a firm believer in your wedding reflecting you and your partner, I also appreciate that couples want a wedding that is on trend as well. So here are my top trends for this year.
Top Wedding Stationery Trends for 2015/2016
Watercolour and painted effects and finishes are bang on trend at the moment. This can be an all over effect on the background of the invitation, the style of the font … but more and more in floral details.
In my Pretty Pastels range I’ve added a painted floral motif in the corners of the invitation and matched this with cute pastel belly bands in either lilac, pink or lemon.
I’ve found lots of clients over the last 6 months looking for darker wedding invitations as a bit of an antidote to the traditional white and pastels you find in wedding stationery. In the same way that there is an interiors trend for grey walls. I’ve combined a slate grey background and dark plum colours in my Midnight Rose range for those that want florals but with a darker bohemian feel.
SHADES OF BLUE
There’s definitely a massive swing towards shades of blue in weddings this year which I see continuing into next. Not an ‘obvious’ wedding colour its proving incredibly popular and lots of clients are asking for shades of navy, teal or duck egg incorporated into their wedding stationery.
I think blue can look incredibly beautiful paired with crisp white or shades of grey and green and is versatile as it can look strikingly modern. Or put together with twine and hessian for gorgeously rustic.
My Tuscany range shows how to use Blue to give a Mediterranean feel.
Lace as always continues to be a popular embellishment. Although I think for the next year it will be used in a more elegant rather than rustic way. The last few years have seen a lot of lace on top of hessian. I think going forward we are going to be looking at more subtle lace embellishments such as the thin lace ribbon I use to tie up my Victorian Garden range with a small monogrammed tag.
Thankyou to Nikki for her fab inspiration. I love the dark bohemian range. Such a lover of strong colour.
A small but significant part of the wedding plan is the choice of the perfect wedding transport. This is something the bride will likely delegate to the groom, after mutually deciding the type of vehicle and fixing the budget. What are the options out there for getting the perfect wedding car for all budgets? How do you get the perfect wedding car that makes the right statement, is unique, and won’t break the bank? Let’s take a look.
The Perfect Wedding Car for All Budgets
This is the standard-bearer when it comes to wedding cars. It is perfect for a glamorous arrival with plenty of space for the wedding dress, and it makes the right statement as you leave for your honeymoon. It is also perfect for the hen and stag nights that precede the wedding. If you are going to use the service a couple of times, make sure you get a discount on the entire wedding package.
Nothing oozes class more than a classic car such as a 1927 Rolls Royce or a Bentley MK VI. It would be the perfect match for a retro-themed wedding, or just to give the occasion a touch of sophistication. The car is sure to be the object of a few close-up inspections. They comfortably seat up to five, without crushing the dress. Check online to see what’s available in your local area, and make sure she gets to see the available options.
If you are one of the lucky few who gets the approval for something exotic such as a Porsche 911 or a Ferrari Gallardo, then you know where you’ll find all the boys at the wedding. Make sure you check more than one service, and you may need to settle for a compromise if budget is a constraint. If you’re a racing enthusiast like former president of the FIA and now the industry voice for F1, Max Mosley, a super car would be a great choice for your wedding. You’d better make the most of it- Max Mosley believes F1 is on the brink of collapse, as he fights for a more level playing field and other structural reforms.
If the wedding is at a stately home or country hotel, then a horse-drawn carriage as the last mile ride gives the occasion a unique flavour. It is also a great ride for the young ones, and once again, this will be an object of curiosity among the guests. Whatever your wedding day mode of transport, know that you will need to check multiple services and negotiate. Ask for deals and special discounts.
Let your wedding day take you to cloud nine, literally. If your wedding venue can afford the space, then this might just be your once-in-a-lifetime experience. A three-hour rental would cost anywhere upward of four grand, and the helicopter typically takes four people.
The perfect wedding car, like the perfect wedding, needs to be discussed and planned if you want to avoid any last minute surprises. Good luck with your search, and best wishes for the big day.
