Take two Accessories Evening at The Wedding Room

Finally, our second installment of our ever popular Accessories Evening this year took place on a chilly Thursday night this November. We were so lucky to have such a successful night with lots of bride-to-be's and their guests attending and snapping up our beautiful accessories!

Featuring our gorgeous range of tiara's including Amanda Wyatt. What style in your favourite? If you're wearing your hair in up have you thought about a bun tiara?

We've recently teamed with a lovely lady from Yorkshire who makes back necklaces from scratch for some of our statement backless dresses just look at these pretties!

Have you thought about a belt for your dress? Perfect to extenuate your waist, take a look at our collection below.

We have jewellery from various designers including; Glitzy Secrets and Nieve Couture. Have you thought about yours? Whats the neckline of your dress? Which style of necklace will complement it best?

If you have a high neckline and are wearing your hair up in order to show this off, think statement earrings, an elegant drop earring would look divine!

With so many questions our evenings are a great place to get started but we don't have to be hosting an event to show our beautiful accessories off!

These are available in store all year round, so pop in and see how we can help you.

Container Conundrums

When planning your wedding flowers its easy to over look details as you're concentrating on the bigger picture. What flowers are in season, what colours will work and the costs are all huge aspects to consider but try not to forget the little details as these bring everything together on your day. The containers of your flowers are probably something you haven't given a lot of thought to but they are incredibly important to finishing off the overall look of your arrangement.

We made a small bouquet of summer flower; peonies, hydrangea and roses and experimented with it's different looks in a range of containers.

The first container is a slight spin on a classic gold fish bowl, instead of clear glass ours is black and although you cant see through the glass (which is usually a key attraction in a goldfish bowl) the black bowl reflects candles and mirror bases beautifully giving so many dimensions and would make perfect centre pieces. This is perfect for a 'vintage meets modern' theme an if you're looking to keep the main focus on the flowers.

Container number two is a classic silver urn, great for giving flowers some height. Arrangements like these would be perfect dotted around a church for your ceremony, to then be reused as centre pieces for your meal later, very cost effective! Urn's compliment any theme but make this look your own by adding table decorations that reflect you and your hubby to be.

The third container is a mirror box, simple and pretty your mirror box with carry off anything you throw at it. Throw together with tea lights and scattered crystals to make dramatic budget friendly centre pieces or pop this little beauty next to your cake for perfect pictures.

Amazing what the details can do isn't it?

Inspire me - thinking about a wedding theme

  Wedding themes are the bread and butter of many wedding blog sites and wedding magazines. Bloggers love talking about and showing you all the beautiful things available to buy and hire, plus stunning examples of photography of real weddings. Just look at this vinateg real wedding breakfast style...with a touch of crafty DIY, just look at the place names !

So what theme is right for you? A theme can be a combination of lots of stuff - for example a choice of colour, the season, a collection of favourite things or even a style suggested by your reception venue. Creating a detailed theme is a relatively new trend. Ten years ago most B2Bs thought they had 3 choices - go to Vegas, to a tropical beach or arrange your reception at home in the local hotel. We never thought about choosing a gown and accessories based on bygone times - this 50's gown looks fabulous don't you think?

Be smart - look at what others have done if you want inspiration. Cherrypick your ideas and you lower your stress as the majority of your guests will never look at wedding blogs or websites! Mary and I can both spend ages ogling boho-weddings and Love my dress. Why not have a classic British timeless wedding that doesn't have a theme but add in things you like? The look can still be beautiful as this couple here.

I think I had it easy! My "theme" was one accompanying colour for bridesmaids, flowers, table napkins etc. Your theme is what feels right for you both. If you just remember why you are getting married and incorporate personal things that you both like and you won't go wrong.

The vintage trend is massive for wedding decorations at the moment, from birdcage centrepices, to ornate candlesticks, decorative tea lights and the ever present hearts theme is timeless.

Canny B2Bs are combining vintage ideas with their DIY and it gives such a personal look. Here the B2B decorated wine bottles with script music and made the lavender heart favours.

Do you know exactly what theme you want or have you still to make the decision? I'm a bit indecisive so I know I would find it hard to choose....:)

Bye for now,

Katrina
