Beautiful Bridesmaids

With just under 7 months to go until I get married, I've had to start considering what I'd like my bridesmaids to wear. Thankfully, not only have my two beautiful bridesmaids agreed to wear anything I put them in (that could be something they regret!!), they are also both the same height, have slender figures and have gorgeous long hair so I'll be able to put them in the same dress and they'll both looking stunning!

I've gone backwards and forwards with regard to the colour I want them to wear... it's ranged from golds, to pinks, to purples, back to pinks and on and on!

Finally however I've made a decision and these are the kinds of colours my bridesmaids will be wearing...

These are a few examples of the kinds of dress we're looking at...

Hair wise, the girls have lovely thick hair so I'm going to get them to have side buns with either flowers or hair jewels to finish it off! As I'm a huge fan of pearls, I'll be wearing them in some form or another, whether it be earrings of a bracelet, so to tie me and the bridesmaids together I'm going to get them to wear the same pearls as me.

These are some pearl bracelets I've seen from Jersey Pearl which I absolutely love...

I can't wait to start shopping with my bridesmaids!!! :)

choccywoccydoodah candy fantastic

one thing both me and my partner know we want is a candy buffet!!

Whilst there are many companies that will do this candy buffet for you, we've made the decision to put together out own. We're going to get candy from the cash and carry, buy vintage jars from car boots and decorate them with ribbons!
Alone with hiring a chocolate fountain, candy buffets,are becoming more andmore popular... this is great as there's loads of inspiration and advice to be found on the web and retailers have definitely cottoned onto this vintage style and so jar's and traditional sweets are easily found on the high street!
To add a twist to our candy buffet we're also going to make cupcakes and brownies to go along with the sweets and chocolate to make it into more of a 'dessert buffet'....


i'm getting married

Me and my fiance are getting married next February and I now have the incredibly difficult job of planning the wedding! Like most women, I've thought about what my wedding would be like a million times but now I'm faced with actually making some decisions, I'm finding it alot harder than I had anticipated! First it's 'when do we get married', then it's the 'where' and now that we've got those organised, I have to decide on the 'how'... do we have a big wedding? do we want a sit down meal or buffet? What colour scheme do we want? What kind of band should we hire? How many bridesmaid should I have? Where do I want to go for my hen night? and the most important question of all.... What style of dress do I want to wear??!!

All in all it's a little overwhelming so I'm going to start putting all my (incredibly conflicting) wedding idea's on this blog, in the hope that I'll figure out exactly what it is I want...
