If you’re having an autumn or winter wedding, you might like to have a look at these beautiful bouquets. The seasonal colours and tones are lovely, and if you’re stuck for which flowers to go with, your florist will be able to advise.
Beautiful Bouquets with Seasonal Colours
I’m showing you my friend’s bouquet first, which was designed by her local florist. The colours were spectacular against blue and navy – a perfect contrast, and would be great too for an autumn wedding.

Budget weddings! We all want to know how to do it well, but on a shoestring. I’ve been neglecting the site it seems. That’s the problem with hobbies – your day job takes you away from other stuff you’d rather be doing. Like writing blog posts for 40+ brides! So to make amends I thought I’d take a look at how to create your great wedding theme on a budget.

I got this done for a friend recently (table place cards) and they looked amazing, as well as costing surprisingly much less than I would expect for this service.
I’ve seen some that look kinda messy, but if you can find someone who does copper script writing, now that’s something special and a real talent.
We all love our shoes and bags, and if you’re having a small wedding you might be thinking about splashing out on a treat for yourself. After all – it IS your special day…
Bridal Wedding Shoes
Here’s a wee treat for all you B2Bs looking to indulge for the upcoming nuptuals. Of course, there’s no rule to say the shoes have to be ivory or white – remember Carrie Bradshaw’s wedding shoes in blue?
We’re much more contemporary today and a contrasting colour is absolutely gorgeous with a short dress or suit.
