One of the lovely things about blogging and tweeting, is that I’ve been able to get to know some of our suppliers a little better than I maybe would have.
They all offered us their best wishes for the day and genuinely wanted to see photographs from the wedding. Once we were back and settled I sent out emails to everyone expressing my gratitude for their lovely messages and also sent pictures.
Flo and Percy, who made my gorgeous Wilderness Hair Comb have since put our photograph on their VIP page (You have to scroll through the pictures)
Also Yarwood-White, who made my stunning Modern Heirloom Necklace, Earrings and Brooch made me their Bride of the Month!
Go check it out!

Trevor and Dawn are wonderful, they surprised me with the most perfect necklace to wear on my wedding day.
It’s by Yarwood White and matches the rest of my jewellery. I really am a very lucky lady! The necklace is beyond gorgeous and no photograph can capture just how sparkly it really is. I absolutely love it.
Thank you so much Uncle Trevor and Auntie Dawn I love you both truly. xxx

Ever since the new Bohemia Collection from Flo and Percy was released I have had my eye on the beautiful Wilderness Comb.
I was unsure as to whether our funds would stretch to indulge my obsession with this comb, seriously I can’t tell you how many times I’ve looked at this online!
Well, when Suzie emailed me a link to Rock My Wedding who have teamed up with Flo and Percy to offer their readers unbelievably amazing discounts (70% off for the first person to order, 50% off to the second and 25% off to the third) I knew I had to try!
I sent my email to Kirstie at Flo and Percy, my heart was pounding the entire time and I was shaking! Ha, I know it sounds a bit extreme but I was nervous to know! I noticed Kirstie had left a comment on the orginial blog post saying the 70% dicsount had gone. Oh… never mind maybe I’d get the 50% off?
Then Kirstie tweeted me! I’ve got the 70% off!!
I honestly can’t believe it! I’m so excited and can’t wait to see what it looks like in real life! If you remember Suzie had the Flo and Percy Clarice Headband for her wedding and that was stunning!
Thank you Kirstie and thank you to the lovely RMW ladies for this amazing competition! x

I know they’re only shoes… but they’re MY purple shoes!!
Thank you so much Suzie, I can’t believe you managed to hunt them down for me! I’m over the moon happy that I now get to wear the shoes I let slip through my fingers just over a year ago. Love you sooo much (and you Suze ) ♥ x

I have my hair trial next week, which I’m really looking forward to.
I’ve been a little bit stuck describing how I want my hair on the day, I know I want it long, curly and loose. I don’t wear my hair up on a day to day basis so I don’t see why I should change that for my wedding day, but I also wanted it to look slightly different, elegant and hopefully include a few pretties!
I came across this wedding today and fell in love with the bride’s hair.
So simple, yet beautiful. I’ll definitely be taking a print out of this to my trial! I think I would probably have slightly tighter curls and I would keep my side fringe out, but I love the little twists on either side.
I’d also love to have a few sparkly pearl pins just to add the extra wow.
I’m loving these from Chez Bec
I also wonder how this would look, in just one side. From Tantrums and Tiaras
I’m going to have a look around some local bridal shops this weekend to get an idea on what will suit me best. Hopefully I’ll come away with a better idea of what I want!

I’m not sure when I decided that I wanted to wear my Mom’s garter on my wedding day, but I remember looking at the pretty ring of material when I was a little girl and knowing that I would wear it one day.
My parents will have been married 28 years this Saturday, so of course the garter had seen better days. My Mom has lovingly restored it and added a few new details.
Originally the garter had a little pink rose bud detail, my Mom removed that and replaced it with a sparkly bow and a pearl heart. ♥
Thanks to my wonderful Mom, I now have my something borrowed. I love that 29 years ago my Mom wore this garter to marry her sweetheart and now, with a little restoration I get to wear the exact same one.
Thank you Mommy! x

… or at least 3 of the bridesmaids do!
I saw them in New Look last week and quickly sent a link to all the girls desperately asking “Do you like? What do you think? Should I get them” The response from all the girls… “Yes! Go, go, go!”
So I did!
The lady behind the sales desk in New Look did look at me slightly odd and asked why I was buying so many pairs of the same shoe in different size. A huge smile spread across my face and I proudly explained “They’re for my bridesmaids!”
I’m really happy with the shoes, I thought we were going to have a game trying to find a suitable shoe and these tick so many boxes. The only problem I can foresee is that they are actually wide shoes, so the sizes come up a little big. But as Suzie pointed out they’ll all be wearing party feet and for £14 a pair I couldn’t really pass them up!
I was saying to Has after I bought them, I can’t believe we’re at that stage in the planning journey where I have to think about buying accessories and shoes! It must mean the wedding is close……

I treated myself today with cute hair accessories from ASOS. I bought mine to pretty up my head for the festivals I’ll be going to in a few weeks, but they could also be used by brides or bridesmaids on a budget.

One of the things I love most about Twitter is all the new friends you make. Due to the powers of Twitter I found Pearl and Willow and the very lovely Beth. A gorgeous collection of hair accessories, necklaces, earrings, bracelets and brooches by fabulous designers such as Chez Bec, Filippa Scott, Polly Edwards and Jo Barnes.
I’ve been searching for something to wear in my hair for a while, and Pearl and Willow’s selection didn’t let me down. Problem is I have too many favourites!
All gorgeous, how can I possibly make up my mind?!
