Having lived in Victorian houses for most of my life, lived in old towns and always had an appreciation for the way Victorians lived, I was intrigued when I got a victorian inspired wedding submission from Australia. The team put a creative and beautiful twist on the 1900s and something that can definitely carry through to 2020…

Managing this takes more than simply having a famous brand, such as Tacori, with your engagement ring. So, turn your eyes to these pointers, see if any of these registers with the romantic in you, and find out how to make your proposal one that will be impossible to turn down.

Bespoke Engagement Rings and Surprise Christmas Proposals | uk wedding blog

facebook-profile-picture By Phoebe

 

A surprise Christmas proposal has to be one of the most romantic gestures. It’s not an original idea, but it’s an enduring one. Because it’s simply unforgettable. Nothing goes down in the annals of family history quite like the engagement ring hidden in a Christmas cracker, hanging on the tree on Christmas morning, or pulled from a pocket on frosty moonlit Christmas Eve stroll. But that does bring a certain degree of pressure to the proposer… not least in finding the perfect ring.

Engagement rings are always special. They are one of the most meaningful purchases you will ever make. If not the most. So laden with sentiment and significance are they. They symbolise everything – not only what your relationship currently is, but what it will be in the future. So, pretty much any ring you choose will be valued. But imagine the symbolism of a ring that you have designed yourself, especially for the person you love. That’s why bespoke engagement rings have become increasingly popular in recent years.

So, how can you set about designing your own engagement ring?Read More

So whilst I don’t want to point out the obvious…I am going to. It is lovely to have some diversity on the blog and this time a gorgeous mature couple eloped to The Grand Hotel in York. Styled to perfection with seasonal flowers and foliage with beautiful splashes of metallics. Though its hard to detract from how wonderful the couple look, I hope you enjoy this and I hope we see more older couples being represented in the wedding media.

Maid with Style London presents The Bridesmaids Brunch | uk wedding blog

facebook-profile-picture By Phoebe

During my planning there wasn’t any where near as much choice as there is now, whilst I think that was a good thing as it meant I could make decisions easily, a lot of the “fayres” I went to were totally uninspired, dated and far too ‘salesy’ for my liking. It really put me off  the concept of a wedding fair but over the years there has been such an explosion of uniqueness and creative talent in the industry that now the traditional fayre is a thing of the past. The team at Maid with Style present The Bridesmaid Brunch (sponsored by thestarinside.com) which will be serving you not only a delicious bottomless brunch but exciting and the most trending bridesmaid designers we have at the moment. Boring taffeta bridesmaids dress are a thing of the past! You will also be able to take your girls our for a relaxed shopping experience and actually spend quality time with them because rather than juggling the logistics of shopping across a city, everything you need will be in one place, doesn’t that sound perfect?

Create the ultimate lists for your wedding with Bimble | uk wedding blog

Planning a wedding whilst exceptionally time consuming for you, also requires lots of planning by your guests. Something I found I was putting my time in to after the invites were sent out (even though they did detail where to stay and there is amble information online…) was recommending where people could stay, or go for food the night before, or where is a good walk the day after etc. Something that whilst its totally harmless, if you have 50 odd people texting you this on top of everything else you’ve got going on can be coming a little…draining.

Bimble can help in that respect. I set up an account with them to trial what they offer and here is what I think…Read More
