Something Blue

Posted 4 years ago by Laura Mitchell in , , , , ,

Something old, something new, something borrowed something blue is a traditional wedding rhyme.  The story behind the rhyme states that if you bring something of each description to your wedding day it will bring you good luck in your marriage; so why not incorporate your something blue into your theme of your wedding.

Blue is a beautiful tranquil colour for your bridesmaid dresses and is flattering to most complexions, shapes and sizes.  You could opt for any shade from a baby blue to a royal sapphire blue.  You could have the whole dress blue or just a splash of blue in a pattern or petite coat.  It is a good colour for the groom and best man to co-ordinate with as well as it’s not too girly.

 

You could add a hint of blue to your bouquet, decor, table settings and even to your wedding cake.  Blue piping or flowers will add a modern twist to a traditional cake and will complement the theme of the whole day.  The mood board gives you some ideas of how you could add little touches of blue throughout the day. The painted chairs are a lovely subtle way of including blue in your wedding day and they look beautiful.

The bride could also wear a touch of blue to complement her bridesmaids, groom and flowers.  A traditional way to wear blue on the day is to wear a blue garter, this could also be your something new or something borrowed. You could also wear other blue accessories for a more modern look, like a veil or a blue piece of jewellery.  The blue shoes below look beautiful with a wedding dress and add a lovely splash of colour.  Your something old and something blue could also be combined by driving away from the ceremony in a beautiful blue vintage vehicle such as the ones in the photographs below.

  

I hope you have fun with this colour scheme if you choose it for your special day. It is a beautiful option and hopefully it will be lucky for you too!

Beautiful wedding day hair accessories

Posted 4 years ago by Laura Mitchell in

Every day we ensure our hair is looking as fabulous as ever and your wedding day is no exception! This is a great occasion to be extravagant and style your hair in the most beautiful way possible. There are some great hair pieces out there which can be used to create a beautiful wedding day style. I’m going to be taking a look at some lovely hair accessories which you can use to ensure you are looking absolutely gorgeous on your wedding day!

Up dos are perfect for adding accessories to. Flower accessories really compliment tousled curls pinned up and it creates a lovely romantic look! I love that some off the accessories pictured have pearls and sparkles in them as it gives them an extra unique touch.  You could even match the colour of your accessories to your wedding day flowers and theme!

 

The netted/lace accessories pictured above have a classic vintage appeal and look extremely classy. These can be used instead of a veil for a sophisticated and stunning look on your big day! I love these as they have a real 1940’s feel to them, yet are very fashionable today too!

 

Entwining accessories in to hair can be beautiful and this could be used for you and the bridesmaids! It is a gorgeous idea and looks stunning. I think this look is nice for spring and summer weddings and is a lovely romantic look. You can entwine the flowers in to your whole hair or just add them to plaits. This really works well with tousled/curly hair styles.

I hope these ideas have inspired you! Your hair is one of the most important aspects on your wedding day. Make sure you practice different hairstyles out beforehand to see what suits your face shape and colouring best! And don’t be afraid of accessories!

Beautiful Wedding Jewellery

Posted 4 years ago by Laura Mitchell in

 

It is obvious that your main piece of jewellery on your wedding day will be your engagement and wedding rings, however it is important that you dazzle your guests with other accessories too! You must make sure that you are picking out stunning pieces of jewellery which will compliment your elegant dress and hairstyle. Alongside this your jewellery can match with other elements of your wedding too which I wish to show you today. So, I have decided to share with you some of my favourite pieces of jewellery which I feel would be beautiful for your wedding!

 

Perfect Pearls

Above are some chic ideas on how you can wear pearls on your wedding day! You could go simple and just have a sophisticated pair of pearl stud earrings. Or perhaps something more extravagant like a dangly pair. Make sure you match the colouring of your metal with your wedding ring to ensure you are looking as stylish as ever. You can even use pearl pendants as gifts to your bridesmaids which they could wear to match you. I love the mixture of lace and pearls for a more vintage style which expresses timeless elegance. You can also use different coloured pearls rather than just the classic white, such as pink/peach or blue/grey. Pearls can even then be used entwined with flowers for your centrepieces or to tie your bouquets together!

 

 

Dazzling Diamonds

 

In keeping with the theme of this year’s Diamond Jubilee, above are some beautiful examples of how you can wear diamonds on your wedding day, ensuring that you really do feel and look like royalty! The drop diamond earrings are extremely graceful yet also make a statement because of their gorgeous sparkle. You could go for a shape which matches your engagement ring whether it is marquise, round brilliant, princess cut or anything else! I also love the exquisite idea of combining pearls and diamonds. They really compliment each other and have a classic appeal. This could be in any piece of jewellery including brooches too!

All of these ideas will ensure that you are looking spectacular on your big day. I hope that they have inspired you to get thinking of gorgeous jewellery pieces to wear for your wedding.
