    Pink -a beautiful but unsuspectingly difficult colour to get right at weddings! The trick to pink is not to overdo it, and keep to one simple shade. Blush pink and easy creams create a soft, gentle palette, perfect for a romantic and warm display. Compiled by Karen Birney

    Whether you're having a church, civil, or an outdoor ceremony you can add something special to liven your aisle up, or to bring a little colour and personality to your chosen venue. From wedding aisle runners, to rose petals to teepees, there's lots of ways to bring a little of what you like to your ceremony. Have a look at some of our fave ideas that will work whatever your budget may be. By Karen Birney

    This aisle runner is so unusual, and looks like a great way to personalise a wedding ceremony as an alternative to the tradional monogrammed version. Image by lizellle lotter photography via Bijoux Bride

    A way to add a little detail to your ceremony decor is to make a feature of the chairs you will sit on. You can decorate with some flowers, or sashes, or even try bride and groom signs for something a bit more modern. Top image by Dave McClelland.

    If you're looking for something more artistic, try creating your own 'alter'.

This Indian style garland feature (middle) and traditional Indian lamp is a beautiful way to add some vibrance and custom to the ceremony alter. (Please check out this entire wedding HERE, as posted in 100LayerCake, the groom is the co-founder of Pinterest and the couple walked down the aisle to 'You're so cool' -the music from one of my favourite romantic movies of all time, True Romance. Amazing.) A great way to decorate your ceremony on a budget is to use fairylights (top right). Hanging vases (bottom right, image by Cat Satre via StyleMePretty) and pillar candles (bottom left, via ElizabethAnnDesigns) are beautiful ways to line the aisle.

    For an outdoor ceremony, petals are one of the most romantic ways to line the aisle. You can shape them into designs, scatter them, or place floating candles alongside them, they really make an impact!

  • Royal Wedding -The Bouquet

    Monday 11 April 2022 - Flowers - Tags: wedding-flowers-wedding-bouquets, bouquet, flowers

    The French Touch

    By Karen Birney

    So it's nearly two weeks until one of the biggest weddings of the decade (beside your own, obvs) and we in WeddingsOnline HQ are speculating about every inch of Kate and William's big day. Today it's been all about the bouquet.

    A Royal Wedding always has tradition at the heart of it, so with that in mind we see Kate opting for a pale bouquet, comprised of home-grown flowers. However we also think Kate will keep up with modern bridal trends for her day, so she might go with a very simple but romantic bloom, elegantly tied and with little or no extra detail. The most perfect flowers for this look are peonies and hydrangeas, which look infinately feminine and are a great look if you want something softer than a rose. We also think Kate will stay away from cascading flowers, so that she compliments, but doesn't take away from her dress (which we think will be a lot more demure than Diana's)

    Lily-of-the-valley may also make an appearance in the wedding flowers, Camilla Parker Bowles used this along with primrose in her dainty bouquet, and the flower was also famously held by one Grace Kelly, queen of bridal style, on her wedding day in 1956.

    There’s speculation that Fairtrade white roses from Kenya will be included, as that was where William popped the question while they were on holiday together!

    Princess Diana's bouquet was made up of stephanotis and gardinias, among other flowers, and also included a sprig of Myrtle, which is a royal wedding tradition dating back to the time of Queen Victoria.

    This is possibly where Kate can use some colour in her bridal wear without ruffling too many feathers! We've speculated that she may go for blue for her bridesmaids, to match the engagement ring that's made such a splash in the wedding world.

  • Hydrangea Addictiion

    Wednesday 23 September 2022 - Uncategorized - Tags: hydrangea, flowers

    I loved this wedding the second I saw it, then I realised that it was primarily because of the amazing hydrangeas. Everytime I see the pretty little blooms, I just love them more and get more excited they will be a feature at my wedding. They are so fabulous! Also I love the flower in the hair!
