Sorry balloons but you’ve really got to go.
We use them to make everything feel natural, to signify the outdoors and to bring a little of the outside, in – but how eco-friendly are your wedding florals really? Have you put any thought into where they came from, how you’ll be using them, or what will happen to them when your wedding is over? Considering the whole lifecycle really is the key!
As if all that food on offer and the huge amount of variety, themes, styles, different serving methods, cutlery options, crockery options… (the list goes on)… weren’t enough, now I’m hear telling you you should be considering how eco-friendly that catering is too?? I get it, it’s already complicated, but choosing a vendor that aligns with your values shouldn’t be difficult – here’s what you need to consider.
What are some of the common features in weddings that maybe aren’t so sustainable, and what can they be replaced with to ensure a similar (or better) experience, without harming the environment?
“Unique” is a word that gets thrown around an awful lot in the wedding industry. Everyone wants their wedding to be unique. To stand out. To be unlike all of the others. It’s a pretty big ask in an industry so strongly influenced by current trends, styles and fashion…

Those little nods of thanks to the people closest to you would have to be one of my favourite parts of a wedding. It’s the little moments, often subtle, where you really connect with someone and thank them for everything they’ve done in your life so far, everything that’s brought you to this point of marrying your best friend, everything that’s meant the world to you and also, everything that you’re sure is yet to come.
In order to truly create new traditions, I also think it’s important that we understand exactly where the old ones came from and exactly why we feel the need to break them. In this post I’ll be looking specifically at the traditions of some prenuptial events, ‘bridal showers’, ‘stag dos’, ‘hen’s parties’ – where they came from, what they represent and a few alternatives you may want to consider if they’re all starting to sound a little inappropriate, or a touch out-of-date…
Hiring a wedding planner doesn’t have to be some luxury item reserved only for the rich and famous. Actually, I’d like to throw myself out there and say that if you can afford to throw a wedding, you can afford to hire a wedding planner.
