Sunday Summary: Light up your Wedding Day

8 Jul

Evening All

It’s been a bit of a long day as I recover from attending a special event held last night in The Swan in West Malling (more to come on this gorgeous restaurant that make a perfect wedding venue!) so I apologise for the lateness of the summary!  While I sit here thinking about what’s been on the blog this past week I’m being side tracked to thinking about what’s coming up next week.  It’s all getting very exciting here at Wedding Dolls HQ, our sparkly new website is nearly ready and plans to launch some very exiting projects are almost finalised, it may be a gloomy, rainy summer so far but we’re definitely feeling bright and sunny and can’t wait to share everything with you all.

So as I take a look back, here’s what happened on the blog this week.

Our Frock of the fortnight was a beautiful dress by Mori Lee by Madeline Gardner, AMAZING is all I can think to say about it, the wonderful shape of this dress is definitely my favourite!

Then we featured the wonderful DC Bouquets again to show you an alternative to the usual wedding bouquet and hair accessories.  These creative one of designs will make you feel really special on your big day.

Still trying to decide wether to invite children? we showed you how to make it easy, by calling in the experts Bearstead Babes to take charge of the situation.

We hope you saw the Caroline Castigliano Sample Sale dates 10th-14th July and managed to book your place!

In our inspirational ideas post we shared some beautiful images to inspire you, easy to re-create for your own summer celebrations, there’s nothing like lanterns to light up your wedding.

For anyone getting married this week, Good Luck and Enjoy!

See you next week

Inspirational Ideas: Lanterns and Poms

6 Jul

Decorating your wedding venue with your colour scheme adds a personal touch to your big day like nothing else. Lanterns and pom poms are a really simple way to achieve a big impact. The phrase ‘the more the better’ definitely applies and grouping them together can really make a statement backdrop. If you are decorating your own marquee, barn or similar type venue take a look at the rest of our board in Pinterest for more inspiration, but here is just a taster of what is possible.

A cheap way of doing mini lanterns so you can light paths and dark corners is to collect jam jars and fill them with long burning tea lights. If you want to have a go at making your own paper pom poms they are really easy – just follow the instructions here from Martha Stewart. To give you an idea of the time involved you can make around 5/6 per hour.

Or if you really don’t want to go to the effort of making your own you can buy them online.  Paper Poms UK are a specialist vendor who sell the poms on Etsy. Prices start from £2 for a 3″ or 4″ pom. Visit their website for more inspiration on how to use your paper poms.

Theme Sunday: Lanterns & Poms

This week we have been looking at ways to use lanterns and pom poms to decorate a venue. The phrase ‘the more the better’ definitely seems to apply when using lanterns or pom poms and grouping them together can really make a statement backdrop. If you are decorating your own marquee, barn or similar type venue take a look at the rest of our board in Pinterest for more inspiration, but for now here is just a taster of what is possible.
