For all you finishing-touches fanatics, we’ve got you covered with our favourite dazzling details that wow!
Finishing touches need not be done at the finish! Make sure you don’t let the ‘big picture’ get in way of the finer details. With more and more brides finding inspiration for their entire theme after stumbling upon that ‘must-have’ pair of shoes, or those perfect ‘save the date’ cards, make sure you don’t miss a trick with these stunning dazzling details – shoes, hair accessories, tables, stationery and cakes.
Ladies, let’s face it, shoes are often our starting-point in life. What better way to kick things off and start on the right foot (excuse the pun(s)!) than to focus your wedding planning around the shoes! The ultimate statement piece (and tantalisingly, often just hidden from view), what you choose to wear on your feet – as is so often the case in life – will affect how you feel, float, glide, shimmy and dance on the day! Here are our favourite designs to tempt you…
Every table deserves to be dressed to dazzle and delight so think carefully about your statement style. Guests will spend a large proportion of their time on your day sat together toasting your good health; make the environment one to remember! Tea lights a-twinkling away merrily look stunning against a backdrop of fresh flowers, as do cut-glass goblets and beautiful crockery (oft-neglected in the grand scheme of things). Do sit down yourself at a guest table in advance to get a feel for how guests will experience your day and to make sure you can see the person opposite!
How you style your hair will depend on your dress and theme but be alive to the prospect that it might be the other way around! With hair accessories becoming ever more glamorous (and adventurous!), many brides are choosing the style of their hair first and letting this dictate the feel of their overall look. Making a huge comeback for carefree, bohemian brides this summer are floral garlands or arrangements to be worn with loose curls and waves. We will also always love the idea of a little shimmer and sparkle to decorate your hair on your big day. Check out these stunning examples…
The first sneaky peek for your guests at what to expect, your wedding stationery will set the tone for the entire day. Sending and receiving mail through the post is going out of fashion fast, but we’re still in love with the idea of a traditional wedding invite that comes through the post – and so will your guests. Give them a tantalising teaser of your incredible day to come on stationery that reflects your theme. We love the thought of DIY brides getting a bit arts and craftsy themselves, as well as these beautiful designs here…
Gone are the days when food merely just tasted good. What can be done these days with a few eggs, a little flour and a bit of icing is truly remarkable. These brilliant creations are both scrumptious and stunning, and lovingly designed to perfectly match your theme. Dress your cake with flowers, strings of pearls and even fairy lights. Do think about how best to frame your wedding cake: we love the idea of placing your cake in front of a vintage mirror for a show-stopping effect. Arguably too good to eat, our favourites here are a photographer’s dream; make sure you don’t forget the cake in the photos!
