My Inspirations - jewel coloured weddings

I am not sure why but I have kept this image on my computer, I think I would like my house to look like this, albeit I already have hot pink and turquoise mixed with whites but it certainly looks nothing like this!!!

I love all the textures, the flashes of colours and the chill out bed, and visualise a wedding theme coming on from this board.
I have found a few inspirations on this idea having been working on one of our brides themes, she has some fabulous different coloured bridesmaids dresses, which is becoming a hugely popular alternative to all the matching bridesmaids this year.
Whilst I love the colours below for an idea I do think if you picked the colours from my photo above with the hot pink, turquoise, orange and that fabulous green this would really make a stunning wedding.

Passionate flamenco inspirations

We adore this passionate Spanish themed inspiration board from Wedding Nouveau with this fabulous colour combination of purples, red and a touch of orange. I think the dress is beautiful and love the table settings and of course the abanico!

Wedding website for Groomzillas!

We are loving this wedding online magazine specifically targeted at the men. As more and more Groomzillas emerge this is the perfect place for them to visit, from what tie to wear, how to propose to organising the stag dos, fabulous and so original.

Weddings. Blokes. Sorted.

From before the proposal to after the honeymoon, they bring you everything you need to know about weddings. Whether you’re the groom, the best man, father of the bride this makes interesting and useful reading.

Wedding Insurance continued

I received an interesting response from Adam who has checked out this latest dilemma
We now have a shop full of orange and red flowers so if anyone fancies a nice arrangement for the weekend please do call us! Only joking, But we did order loads of flowers just in case they got here.
The irony is I picked up my daughter from the airport tonight with a suitcase full of love heart sweet favours for tomorrow as well:(
So I have changed plans and will spend tomorrow in my store room with my new shelves.
Mind you my daughter also bought some fabulous hanging white hearts and love letters and I have my other daughter arriving on Wednesday with more goodies I have ordered, can not wait to see them all!

Wedding Insurance

It has been a strange week with the airspace over the UK and most of Europe closed and of course there have been many casualties, not least one of our weddings booked for this Saturday has had to be cancelled due to the wedding party just not being able to get to Spain.
Having also seen many hotels here close in the last year such as Los Monteros, Las Dunas, Taberna del Albadero, in the light of this, we would strongly recommend any brides planning their wedding abroad to take out wedding insurance to protect themselves from such disasters happening.
Spain is not an insurance culture and there are no insurance companies here in Spain offering this, but many clients coming from the UK, Ireland and the US should investigate what is available to them.
We are currently investigating a few insurance companies offering insurance for weddings abroad and will be offering this to our brides soon.

Fabulous Florals

We just love the fabulous florals that are still taking one of the top slots in wedding styling, and were thrilled to find this image on The City Sage.
It showcases the decadence of the hugely popular floral style that is still taking the fashion and interior worlds by storm.
We cannot wait to see our latest photo shoot of a Cath Kidston style centrepiece and cake and now have these two fabulous accessories coming to our shop soon.

Check out our floral card cake stand at just 14 euros, easy and quick to assemble and ideal for garden style weddings or vintage tea parties to pop your fairy cakes on.
Flat packed and easily transportable, saving you the hassle of hiring or buying a china piece and worrying about it breaking.
We adore these beautiful vintage style teacup candles at 15 euros each, a gorgeous and unique gift for your girlfriends, set them out on your tables to complete that fabulous vintage style. They come in a selection of sherbet colours and can be washed once the candle has finished and used as a normal teacup.
Both these items will be available in our shop next week.

Fresh green table styling

Another morning of some more table decorating inspiration and we love this fresh white and green scheme found on the photography blog of Lane Ditto
I think the details such as the little white paper lanterns on the chairs and those beautiful blossom twigs are gorgeous and not quite sure how that table stays up with one leg, someone might let me in on that one!

Churros Inspired Spanish Theme

Ok this morning I have yet again gone to heaven over finding this spanish inspired shoot on Green Wedding Shoes.

Using the Spanish styled theme of churros as favours or even for the dessert, we think of course is a brilliant idea, I steer clear of churros and chocolate but do succumb when visiting Marbella in the mornings! I would love to see a wedding where the guests are given hot bags of sugary churros to top them up whilst dancing.

Using the spanish lace tablecloths and the spanish pottery plates really does set the tone and we love the fan menu, going to be my project now for the day, along with the chair tags with the flamenco touch.

Another huge thank you to all these creative people that make my day!

A fairytale theme

Every girl loves a fairytale, when else can you behave like a princess and make your dreams come true, as on your wedding day.
What a fabulous excuse to create ideas and have fun personalising your day and delight your guests with quirky ideas.
We are in love with this wedding theme found this morning on Wedding Chicks, using elements from the hugely popular Alice in Wonderland again.
The fabulous colour combo of purple and lime greens and all the details, don't be late for a very important date invites, the subtle use of clocks and teapots, and we absolutely are in love with that cake.

Beach Style Wedding Inspiration

As I have been scanning the internet yet again for inspirations for our own photography shoots, I have yet again stumbled across yet another hugely talented and creative blog, Designs by Hemingway. I found this wonderful beach theme with this fabulous colour scheme and to die for table setting, if only my local Spanish chiringuito looked like this I would be in heaven!

Red and white wedding inspiration

A few of our brides this year are having a red and white theme for their wedding and we have been working on this colour scheme with various styles and inspiration boards to reflect these different variations.

Combine red roses with diamante and tall martinis for a more glamorous, smart black tie affair. Red roses, of course being the flower of love! Packed tightly into martinis or low table arrangements are stunning just as one single rose in a vase.

Flowers that work well with this smart, elegant scheme are white cala lilies and red roses,
a fabulous floral combination for the stylish sophisticated wedding.
We have also been creating another red and white wedding beach theme using red anthuriums and white orchids, a different and more tropical combination. But again two fabulous flowers that as a combo work really well together.

Warm this up with a few oranges or striking greens and you completely change the look.

Reds and whites of course are also a hugely popular colour choice for the chill out look, which of course if you are planning a chill out style for your wedding, will combine really rather well.

Finish this off with a themed cocktail such as one of my favourites, Strawberry Daquiri and you have a party in the making!

Spring pastels and ribbons

We love this spring pastel wedding found on Ritzy Bee typepad, with such cute and dainty accessories and all the wonderful details that for me, personally, make a wedding or party truly individual.
From the pastel bunting to the beautifully created cakes, the bubbles for the flower girls and the note cards, I am in heaven :)!
