Cheap ‘Just Married’ Flip Flops with a free Beach Bag

Cheap ‘Just Married’ Flip Flops with a free Beach Bag

I was going to tell you about what a bargain these wedding flip flops are from Forever Memories.  They are only £9.99 a pair and you also get a free Just Married drawstring beach bag worth £4.99 thrown in.  However, given a choice I would probably go for the Diamon-T flip flops mentioned previously on this site.  They are [...]

The Apprentice and The National Wedding Show

The Apprentice and The National Wedding Show

  Would you want to be sold something for the biggest day of your life by a bunch of arrogant, self-adoring apprentices of Sir Alan Sugar?  I certainly wouldn’t.  Imagine getting yourself stuck with Sara or Michael because you happened to take a glance at one of the wedding cakes they were selling.  Apart from [...]

Birdcage candle holders from Laura Ashley

Birdcage candle holders from Laura Ashley

  These beautiful birdcage tealight holders from Laura Ashley capture a bit of the English country garden appeal at your wedding reception table.  They are beautifully decorated with rambling rose detailing and measure an impressive 22.5cm high.  Do not overlook that last measurement as it is easy to assume that tealight holders are quite small [...]

Cactus candles for an authentic Las Vegas wedding

Cactus candles for an authentic Las Vegas wedding

I love these unusual cactus candles so much that they fall into the list of items that would make me want to rethink my whole reception table theme just so that I could include them somehow.  They look incredible lifelike and would make an interesting addition if the theme was right.  I think they would be perfect for [...]

Personalised Rolo Wrappers – Are they back ?

Personalised Rolo Wrappers – Are they back ?

I mentioned these personalised rolo wrappers in passing last month because they were no longer anywhere to be found.  There were a few suppliers selling them last year but then they suddenly stopped.  I presumed this was because these suppliers had not sought permission from Rowntrees for their brand use and images and thought no more of it. [...]

Pink and black truffle favours from Thorntons

Pink and black truffle favours from Thorntons

These pink and white truffle favours from Thorntons are called Oriental Blossom. They do have a slight exotic flavour but I certainly wouldn’t have assumed so had it not been for their name.  I think they would look beautiful on any table setting with a black and white theme.   Some people go overboard with the black [...]

Jenny Packham Bride Hollywood Style Silver Wedding Dress

Jenny Packham Bride Hollywood Style Silver Wedding Dress

This silver wedding dress from Jenny Packham caught my eye in the latest edition of Cosmo Bride under a feature page they ran on Hollywood trends.  I guess there is a certain amount of movie star glamour in this design and the dress is certainly pushing a Beverly Hill price tag at £2550 (add an extra £650 for [...]
