    It’s Always Been a Tradition

    On your wedding day there is a certain tradition that most brides, even the modern ones, still like to uphold to. The something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue.

    For your something old this can be linked with your something borrowed, as traditionally the brides ‘something borrowed’ is usually an item of jewellery or even their wedding dress which was worn by their mother. If the bride does not wear her mothers dress she often sews a piece of fabric from it into her own. In Japan it is traditional for the bride to wear a white silk kimono that is handed down from generation to generation – a very sentimental gift from mother to daughter but also an expensive one prices tend to start at £10,000 and can range to as much as £100,000!

    The something new has unlimited ends, so most brides consider their wedding dress as their something new but to be honest anything can represent this from your dress to your underwear. It’s up to you! Check out some stunning Wedding dresses from Perfection Bridal at our next fair on the 30th June, they have masses of stunning dresses to suit all sorts of brides.

    It has long been a tradition that the brides something blue was a garter worn around her thigh on the wedding day and is sometimes presented to the bride to be by a friend on her hen night. If you’re stuck for ideas it can easily double as your something new! If you are looking to go outside of the box and have something different why not try incorporating it into your jewellery, hair accessorises, lingerie, shoes or even your wedding day theme.

    Whether you want to incorporate these traditions into your wedding day theme or bridal ware it is completely up to you and we have an endless list of options to assist you in these decisions – If you would like to get a quote please contact us on 01273 771500 or come and visit us at The Marry Me Wedding Fair on the 30th June!

    Add a Touch of Summer to your day!

    It may seem like the summer sun is a long way away, but believe it or not it is just around the corner! If you are planning to have your wedding during the fabulous summer months, then here are a few fun and interesting ideas you may wish to incorporate:

    If you have got outside space at your reception venue, set up some chairs and giant games so guests can enjoy the glorious summer sun before sitting down to the wedding breakfast

    Instead of serving guests canapés on arrival, try Pimms and ice cream – we have some funky vintage ice cream carts which can be hired out to serve your guests an array of tasty treats!

    For the bride and bridesmaids vintage parasols and colourful fans are a great way to keep cool – you can even hand out fans to guests as favours

    Themes for this summer are set to be bright and beautiful, so why not go with a beach theme using deckchairs and seashells to decorate or try an Indian inspired colour theme with rich coloured fabrics and jewels – we have some great theming and entertainment options available or we can put together something completely bespoke for you!

    Travel in style to your event with an open topped vintage car or horse and carriage, perfect for catching a breeze but also makes a grand entrance! – we have some great options for travel on your special day from quirky tuktuks to an elegant Rolls Royce

    If you need any help with ideas or finding some great suppliers then contact us on 01273 771500 and we will be more than happy to put together a proposal of options for you free of charge.

    Themed weddings get more exciting!

    We’re really excited about the new series of Wedding House on Channel 4. For ages we’ve been banging the drum about having exciting and unusual weddings and been lucky enough to have been the wedding planner for a few crazy brides! But it’s thrilling to see themed weddings on national television.

    The first episode of Wedding House featured an Alice in Wonderland theme for a wedding, with great attention to detail (the devil is in the detail!) and the most amazing costumes – every single guest was dressed up as a character from the story. Giant cupcakes, delicate teacups and saucers for drinking from, giant toadstools, ‘Eat me’ and ‘Drink me’ signs… the props were stunning!

    What was really interesting was seeing the groom change from being slightly reluctant, to really enjoying dressing up. We see this a lot with themed parties and weddings. People feel a bit daft until they really get into the swing of things – then suddenly they find their inner child released and really start to have fun!

    Also in the show was a fantastic Moulin Rouge themed wedding. We thoroughly approve of the complete over-the-topness of this theme and even more so as the bride and groom are both theatrical types. They even go one step further and include a performance as part of their wedding!

    All this just goes to prove what we’ve been saying for ages. The days have gone where the traditional wedding is the only option. Civil ceremonies have contributed a lot to this change, bringing with them new formats and having no precedent to follow… we love the new creative wedding ideas and in fact we’re working on a Winter Wonderland wedding and a ‘Disney’ themed wedding at the moment. tiki-bar-set-up

    One of the most popular weddings we ever worked on included a full Hawaiian tiki bar (pictured) and two tonnes of sand being brought into the venue! We’ll never forget seeing the wedding guests kick off their shoes and run into the sand laughing and giggling like children!

    So. If you are planning a wedding with a more unusual theme or angle, we can match anything you’ve seen on Wedding House, and a whole lot more besides! We have prop builders, make up artists, actors and performers – everything you need to create the wedding of your dreams and fantasies. Click here to email us
