  • Will you wear a Garter?

    Tuesday 6 September 2022 - Fashion - Tags: wedding-garter, wedding-accessories, garters

    By Karen Birney

    Garters have garnered themselves a bit of a rep, dividing brides-to-be who either think 'the garter thing' is a bit of a laugh on one hand, or tac-tacular on the other. Thing is, garters can be a lot sexier than an Oops TV wedding special would have you believe. Take a look at some of these beautiful pieces that will make you think twice about a tradition you thought was gone with the wind. (Just make sure he isn't planning on 'tossing' one of these, or he'll regret it!)

    wedding garters
    Us girls know well what's going to be going on under our dresses on our wedding day. And it ain't pretty. Piping, wires, sticky tape, cement, safety pins, hold-ins, push-ups....velcro (ew)... Fact is, wedding undies aren't the most attractive in the world but if you just want to add something a little secretive and special to your undergarments, these garters will make you feel feminine and sexy.

  • Janine and Richard's Wedding by Gra Photography

    Monday 5 September 2022 - Real Weddings - Tags: alternative, leather, rocha, john, wedding, real, alternative-cover-ups, john-rocha-wedding-dress, gra-photography

    “The day was full of great moments,” said their Photographer, Grainne Flynn of Gra Photography. “Richard whisked his bride off on his much-loved 1960s Vespa from the Dublin Registry Office to the canal where they shared plenty of bubbles with their close family and friends - once they were given a rusty old bottle opener by a friendly local, that is.”

    “Feeding ducks, throwing flower bombs, guests tucking into wraps from the food market and Janine stopping traffic in her exquisite John Rocha number, the vibe was relaxed, urban and really rather cool,” Grainne adds.

    “After strolling along the canal to Locks restaurant, their personalised magnums of wine were popped open and it was time for me to leave them to it,” says Grainne. “A simply beautiful wedding.”

  • DIY Weddings: Papel Picado Flags

    Thursday 1 September 2022 - DIY - Tags: project, inspiration, flags, paper, bunting, wedding, diy

    A cute and easy DIY project to create your very own Papel Picado flags. Hang them in the church or drape them around you reception room to help add a splash of colour to your big day.



    ·       Various colours of tissue paper - maybe in your wedding colour theme

    ·       Double sided tape or glue

    ·       Scissors

    ·       Ribbon

    ·       Paper for template


    1. Fold paper for the template into 1/6s length-wise. Once paper is in 1/2, fold it into 1/3s.


     2. Cut small shapes along the folded sides of the template.


     3. Open to see if you like the pattern.

    4. Then lay the template over the tissue paper, which should be folded in the exact same way the template is.

    5. Cut the tissue in the same pattern as the template.


    6. Unfold and repeat in the same way for other colours of tissue.


    7. Lay ribbon out and stick different colour tissue flags side-by-side on the ribbon with the double sided tape or glue. Leave about enough space either side so the banner can be tied up.

    8. Stick another piece of ribbon to the front side of the banner.


    9. Now hang it up and stand back to admire all your 'hard' work!

    "Memories, imagination, old sentiments, and associations are more readily reached through the sense of smell than through any other channel" -Oliver Wendall Holmes

    We spend so much time investing in memories. Sight is the most obvious way in which we evoke memories of the past; it's why we take photos of nights out with the girls, the little one on his first day of school, a Sunday dinner with the parents or himself sleeping peacefully beside you. But what of our other senses? Touch...Taste....Sound....Smell.... Your sense of smell is one of the most powerful memory triggers you possess, possibly even stronger than sight. A familiar smell can stop us in our tracks, and eyes closed, time paused, a moment is presented to us, vividly, intensely -we are submerged in our memories, tasting the air, saturated by emotion.

    "Wear perfume wherever you want to be kissed" -Coco Chanel

    You want to remember everything about your wedding day, it is a moment in your life that you have put much effort into making a glorious memory. You have the dazzling dress, the shoes and the decor all set, and the photographer in place to record anything your mind attempts to eventually alter or file away. Your own personal diary will be your sense of smell, and that’s why your perfume on your wedding day is important. Here's some of our favourite fragrances for the bride.

    wedding perfume classic
    Clockwise from top left: Classique by Jean Paul Gaultier; Coco Mademoiselle; Cashmere Mist by Donna Karan; Flora by Gucci; Vera Wang Anniversary; Chance, Chanel.

    TIP! If you can afford to, buy the shower gel and body lotion of your chosen scent, and use it the night before/morning of your wedding. Your scent will cling to it and last all day (and night).

    Tip! Try to hold off buying your perfume until a day or two before the wedding. That way you won't be tempted to wear it before and it will be brand new on the day.

  • Crest Whitening Strips

    Thursday 25 August 2022 - Beauty - Tags: bridal-beauty, teeth-whitening, whitening-strips, crest-whitening-strips

    cheryl cole teeth whitening
    By Karen Birney

    I will have to start this blog post off by stating that I AM NOT A DENTIST, but you would probably have figured that out as you read on anyway. As I type I am slowly gathering saliva in my lower jaw, tilting my head back to usher said saliva to the back of my throat and down my neck in a whale-like fashion. It is my fourth day using Crest Whitening Strips, and I don’t mind looking like a British character in a Family Guy cutaway because my whitening strips are working.

    Back story: I wanted to get my teeth whitened professionally a few months ago however a) I needed to have a few teeth filled before they would do it, and I couldn’t afford to get them done and b) At 200 squid I couldn’t afford to get them whitened anyway, which I suppose cancels out the first reason. However when I met a visibly brighter friend of mine for a few drinks the other night, she divulged her little strip secret to me, and I wanted in.

    I had heard some not-so-sexy stories about whitening strips damaging the enamel of your teeth, and as I don’t possess the strongest lower incisors in the world, for the first two days I just used the strips on my upper teeth, leaving the strip on for 30 minutes. After two days my teeth were noticeably whiter and unlike some reviews I have read, I didn't suffer any sensitivity. Himself told me to take it easy on them as I have pretty much white teeth naturally, and he didn’t want me looking like Cheryl Cole (yea, like that would be a death sentence).

    So that's my story. Crest Strips: High Five from WOL. From the forums it seems like most of the girls purchase theirs for about €30 from and word is they deliver quite quickly. For hints and tips on how to use them, there are no better lassies than the Wollies themselves (you are a knowledgable lot aren't you?) so here’s a few links to see what they have to say.

    Happy whitening ya’ll!

    Crest Whitening Strip query:

    What to use while using CWS?:

    CWS: When to start using?:

    CWS: Use when pregnant?

    Tips! Whitening strips can cause sensitivity. Don’t brush teeth before using. After use, smear teeth with Sensodyne to suppress sensitivity. Do not use on veneers or fillings. Please consult your dentist before use, the last thing I need is them chasing after me *hears sound of drilling in mind*.

  • Emma & Nico in County Arms, Offaly, by Rubistyle Photography

    Thursday 25 August 2022 - Real Weddings - Tags: real-wedding, county-arms-hotel, offaly-venue, rubistyle-photography

    I was in touch with the marvellous Amy French of Rubistyle Photography a few weeks ago, looking for some help with an article we were writing for B Magazine. When she sent me what I needed she also included in the mail a link to a wedding she had shot just days before. And when we saw it we knew we had to share it with you.

    Emma and Nico were married in the County Arms Hotel, Birr, Co. Offaly on August 4th, and are CURRENTLY over in Zambia for their SECOND wedding -lucky lucky lucky guys having two weddings ay?

    We loved this wedding not only because Emma looks amazing, her dress is gorge and the flowers are beautiful (obvs) but because the photos really show the closeness and love between Emma and Nico... It's almost palpable!

    Anyway, enough from us...
