Marsala- Official Colour of the Year

Pantone have announced the colour of the year….drum roll please

2015/01/img_8430.jpgThis beautifully rich, yet subtle colour just oozes elegance. If it was food…it would be a Galaxy.

The earthiness of this colour can easily be translated into fashion, beauty, interior design and so much more. It can be used as a base colour or an accent colour and will still have the same strong impact.

Marsala is a subtly seductive shade, one that draws us in to its embracing warmth- Leatrice Eiseman
Executive Director, Pantone Colour Institute®

I’m in love! For more inspiration, visit Pantone.

Why You Need a Wedding Planner

Every bride believes they can plan their wedding by themselves, and so does every Mother of the bride, every mother in law, every sister, every cousin, every aunt…(you see where I am going with this). The worst culprits of this thought process are Asian brides!

Seriously..I know because I am one of these creatures!

I am here to let you know why it is beneficial to have a wedding planner. Continue reading

Guestbook Alternatives

To quote Wikipedia,

 ‘A guestbook (also guest bookvisitor logvisitors’ bookvisitors’ album) is a paper or electronic means for a visitor to acknowledge a visit to a site, physical or web-based, and leave details such as their name, postal or electronic address, and any comments.’

A guestbook, in the context of a wedding, can be absolutely anything! No really… and the more unique it is, the better! I am always in favour of a good book so my vote would normally be there, however some of the following options could make me reconsider!

Most of these lovely creations can be found personalised on Etsy,

Happy Sunday
