I was rather excited to hear this week that one of my favourite brands 'Free People' had launched a bridal collection. Full of very reasonably priced dresses perfect for a 'Boho' wedding they are available via their website now http://www.freepeople.co.uk/fp-ever-after-bridal/
My favourite is this 'corsage' dress which is £600... I love the high neck and 'keyhole' detail at the back ...
Today sees my final post in my four part series on what flowers are in season for your wedding. Today I'm looking at winter weddings. Immediate thoughts of winter weddings are red roses and lots of evergreen pine but there are a lot more options that you would think.
Of course the list below is just my favourites and make sure you check with your florist about what they can provide for you on the exact date of your wedding.
Cosmos is such a beautiful little flower - it come in many colours but I particularly love the 'Chocolate' variety for winter wedding bouquets.
Last week one of my bespoke couples Laura & Matthew got married in a Vintage Travel and Art Deco themed wedding day. I had the great pleasure of designing their wedding reception stationery which was fantastic fun as they really allowed me to run with the theme.
You can see their wedding invitations which I designed earlier in the year here http://knotsandkisses.blogspot.co.uk/2015/02/vintage-railway-art-deco-wedding.html
For their wedding I designed placecards and order of service and also some bespoke signs for their Order of Day and Guest Book to match in with the theme.
My favourite element of their reception stationery though was the bespoke table plan which Laura wanted to have the feel of an arrivals board and also incorporate images of the vintage postcards which they were using for their table names.
I'm delighted that I'm going to be exhibiting at this bridal showcase in Plymouth on the 7th June, to celebrate the launch of the new Bespoke Bridal Guide Plymouth. Its going to be a great day out so will hopefully see some of your there to chat about your wedding stationery.
Its part 3 of my 4 part series of posts on what flowers are in season for your wedding today.
Today I'm looking at Autumn flowers ... which is great timing as you may well be planning your Autumn wedding now .. I know I've had several stationery enquiries for Autumnal wedding stationery over the last couple of weeks.
I love Autumn colours - burgundys, plums, rusts, browns and dark greens are so evocative and cosy looking and these colours can also be incorporated in to your flowers.
Below are my favourites of the flowers which are in season for Autumn but obviously check with your florist as they will have many more options.
Dahlias are as wonderful for the autumn as they are for summer coming in some beautiful deep burgundy and russet colours. I like 'overflowing' bouquets for Autumn and these are perfect.
Perfect to add a really seasonal touch to your bouquet or arrangements - I especially love blackberries in bouquets.

A pop of red at an Autumn wedding is always lovely and poppies are perfect for this.
Hands up I've never been a big fan of sunflowers .. a bit too brash somehow. But recently I'm changing my opinion ... done in an unstructured wild flower way I've seen wedding bouquets with sunflowers which have looked absolutely beautiful. Its a definite end of summer harvest feel that I can really imagine in a barn wedding with lots of haybales and local cider!
Today I'm revisiting one of my most popular ranges of wedding stationery - China Blue. http://knotsandkisses.co.uk/chinablueweddingstationeryrange.html
I have definitely seen an upsurge in clients who are having the colour blue for their weddings over the last year or so - whether that be dark navy or pale powder blue it is definitely more popular now than ever.
Three of my ranges incorporate blue currently - the coastal inspired Bohemian Beach, the Mediterranean Tuscany and this one China Blue, which draws inspiration from traditional blue and white crockery and crisp white table linen.
I've also come up with a moodboard of ideas for styling a wedding with the China Blue scheme ... I love the addition of rustic daisys and country flowers - but you could just as easily keep it very crisp white and blue for a more modern feel.
