Five of the Best: Wedding Pumps

19 May

Some of us girls love high heels, for me it’s the higher the better! They make me stand taller, feel slimmer and also at 5ft 2 they give me those few extra inches that allow eye contact with the non-vertically challenged – even if it is for just a few hours.

However you might not want to have to wear heels on your wedding day (or want some flats to change into later) so you’re in luck because there are some beautiful alternatives to the wedding high heel on the high street – think ballet pumps with added sparkle!

2. The Limestone Shoe, by Belle for Paradox of London. Kent stockist Wedding World of Kent in Folkstone.

Sunday Summary: What a Nice Wedding

6 May

Last weekend when Joanne was busy with the blog and planning workshops I was sunning myself in the South of France. It was bliss. A few days of sun and long wine fuelled lunches was just what my hand needed to get a bit better. The splint did get lots of weird looks but at least it got me a fabulous seaview seat a few times so I’m not complaining.

Over one long lunch my husband muttered “oh god no here we go” when I spotted a wedding happening down of the street. Rushing off to take a look I watched the happy couple climb into a vintage car and take to the streets with lots of horns tooting and cheering all the way down the promenade. It seems even in Nice you’re not to posh to clap and cheer as the Bride and Groom drive past. Fabulous.

Next we took off to Monaco where another newly wed couple were climbing aboard their luxury yacht waving to everyone on the marina. With a beer costing around £13 a pint at Le Cafe de Paris in Monte Carlo though, you won’t find us mere mortals getting married there.

Safely back in the rain on Monday we saw the final choices of Bridesmaids dresses for a November wedding. Our favourite was a gorgeous Dessy dress. On Tuesday our feature fun showed how to be a wedding shoe showoff with shoe stickers by Nutmeg. On Thursday we took inspiration from the Royal Wedding and looked at hiring classic cars for your wedding ride. On Friday we shared a pre-wedding shoot by fabulous photographer, Kerry Ann Duffy. Watch out for the full wedding next week with the lovely Danielle and Chris who had an English Country Fair wedding.

Yesterday was the third part of our planning a vintage wedding special with vintage shoes galore. Next week it’s vintage wedding styling.

Enjoy the bank holiday weekend!

Wedding Shoe Show Off

1 May

These fun wedding shoe stickers, available from Nutmeg, are great for a bit of a giggle on your wedding day.

Available in a wide range of colours, three different fonts and with seven different sayings, they can also be personalised with your initials or a secret message. They are so easy to apply, simply peel off the backing and apply to the arch of your shoe.

We think they are great for a fun way to do your something blue!
