Hallowe’en by Creative Bridal Solutions

il_fullxfull.154477940 il_fullxfull.259847443I posted about Creative Bridal Solutions a while back. I really love their collections of damask bridal accessories and was really pleased to see some Hallowe’en themes.

il_fullxfull.70128921Nightmare Before Christmas/Jack & Sally themed weddings are ever popular and I love these garters and the Jack & Sally cake topper.

My Immortal Visions Memory Book

1002088_479601965449336_1294745341_n il_fullxfull.468512297_syvdI recently did a post about the gorgeous cards and memory books produced by Immortal Visions and I was so attracted to Melissa Walker’s creations, that I commissioned a memory book for my hen weekend photos.

IMG_6727 IMG_6728I sent Melissa the photos I wanted to be included in the book and a general colour scheme that I wanted: purple and black, polka dots and damask.

I was blown away by what she went away and created. She has created something beautiful and unique to my vintage tea party.

They first came to my attention when I stumbled across their photos of a black and purple themed wedding.

480_318_csupload_56981224They offer a wide variety of wedding packages to suit any budget and they also work closely with other family run businesses to ensure you receive a bespoke service for your special day.

Their dressings are striking and classy and if you can’t see a package that quite suits you, they also offer a bespoke package so you get exactly what you want.

Peacock theme ideas

I’ve been coming across some fantastic peacock themed wedding ideas lately so I thought they deserved their own post. The thing with such a colourful theme, it’s probably wise to go easy on the feathers and the teal or it could quite easily go into overkill.

Everything Steampunk

Parasol

 

I’ve been in a bit of a steampunk mode since becoming thoroughly absorbed by Gail Carriger’s Parasol Protectorate novels, so I’ve been hunting the internets for fabulous steampunky wedding themes.

I came across this series of book covers by Nekro for a series of steampunk novels by Liesel Schwarz that I thought were wonderfully striking and I could just imagine them printed up and being used for funky decor.

Now, without further ado, here are various items that caught my eye….

Bouquet Preservation

I’ve recently seen some lovely ideas for preserving wedding flowers. Drying and pressing flowers has long been a way of preserving your wedding flowers, but I really love the idea of framing your whole bouquet to display.

 

Precious Petals are a family run business based in Bramley, near Basingstoke and Reading.

They were asked to preserve the wedding bouquet for the Countess of Wessex, and offer a personal touch for all of their customers, royalty or not.

 

 

Flowers can be pressed or presented three dimensionally to stunning effect.

They can even be presented as a beautiful paperweight.

 

In the US, Mountain View Freeze Dry present wedding bouquets in stunning frames, complete with a photo from your wedding day, or even with your toasting flutes.

 

 

A bride’s bouquet is such an integral part of her whole ensemble and I opted for silk roses as I really wanted to be able to keep my bouquet as a memento of the day. Being able to freeze dry and preserve your bouquet in this way is both beautiful and convenient.

 

For the study, or as a table centrepiece, these flower domes are gorgeous.

 

Now your wedding flowers can be timeless.
