i wish someone told me that before my wedding

Happy Friday Lovelies!

This afternoon we’ve been chatting all things wedding, and we’ve come to the conclusion that with your wedding, hindsight can be a wonderful thing. Certainly our newly wedded couples happened to have a lot of it.

This is only good news for you!

And luckily enough I made a few scribbles, which somehow manifested into words of wedding wisdom.

Sweet Style for the off-beat Wedding Guest

Here’s my mid-week musing: Perhaps I should sort my wedding wardrobe for the very near weddings I’m attending, instead of prettying up my paper closet for the umpteenth time.

But really, wedding season always springs up on you – and before you know it the invites are pouring in!

The trouble is I can’t just wear any cookie cutter dress, It has to be a statement dream, with a little offbeat design detail and a lot of daring.

After trailing the high street I’ve found my fashion picks, and I know you all share this sweet style so here it is. I hope you find a little inspiration!

I’ve spotted plenty of pretty palettes from other real weddings, but I don’t want to just have a colour copy from somebody else’s special day. The trouble is, when I experiment with combinations of my own nothing seems to look quite right. Am I missing something, why can’t I create my perfect wedding colours?


So Kate, it’s not just a case of deciding between peach hues or cornflower blue, there’s a sort of science to it. And I think it’s about time you & your fellow bewildered brides get colour smart!  Continue reading
