Ambiant Lighting

It is a fabulous time of year to have an outdoor wedding reception.  If you know someone with property or you know of a local area for hire where you are able to erect a marquee or tee-pee (love these), then it is definitely an option worth considering.  The best bit about an outdoor wedding happens when sun goes down.  This is where  your lighting choices become really important.  The images below from a great blog : should give you some inspiration.  Think of open fires, lanterns floating through the sky – or on a pond if there is one nearby, beautiful star-lit skies with your dance floor underneath and a sprinkling of fairy lights or lanterns to guide people throughout the event – ahh it’s heavenly.


Wedding Invitations

I just saw the funniest thing on the TV!  It was the groom from the new show ‘Don’t Tell the Bride’ telephoning everyone inviting them to his wedding instead of sending out a beautiful paper invitation – geez men!  But far out it was funny.

So this post is a tribute to the classic wedding invite – and I hope that the telephone trend doesn’t take off – or what about if it was a text!!! NOOOOOO!

It’s all about the shoe!

I clearly remember the boredom when shopping for my wedding day shoes.  Back then it was all about comfort.  Will you be able to stand in them all day? Make sure the heel isn’t too high. You need to be able to dance in them and they have to be WHITE!  Well not any more, thank goodness!

Add some spunk to your wedding day shoe. Choose your favourite colour, blend them in with your theme.  Check out these looks we like. We are all about the shoe today.

Add some pizazz to your drink!

When styling your wedding or event you want to make sure that your theme flows seamlessly.  You want to create an environment that has a great atmosphere, and a point of difference, something that your guests will never forget.  A great way to get that ‘something special’ is to tizzy up your drinks area. Everything from the bar, drinks containers, glasses and flavours can be customised to fit into your styling.  It’s so much fun creating a signature drink/cocktail for your event too.

See below for a few pics of a recent style look we created for a client whose wedding theme was industrial shabby chic.

Wedding Hair Styles

The whole team have voted that we give Pinterest a bit of a plug.  Pinterest is a virtual pin board we people ‘pin’ beautiful things they find on the web, and organsie them in one space.  A favourite search we do for our clients is finding Wedding Hair Do’s.  The ‘dos’ you find on Pinterest are looks that you might not find in the wedding magazines so you can really find something that suits your personal style and be unique!  Here is a sample…
