Unspoken Conversations are the topics that are often swept under the carpet, whispered amongst the closest of friends and bitched about by many. I want to create awareness about difficult things that people face in life; grief, mental health, money, illnesses, family troubles, relationship difficulties and putting yourself first. I want to tell the truth about things that really matter.

Don't Tell the Guests - The Little Things

There's lots of little knick knacky things that can personalise a wedding day, all of which I had totally overlooked before planning our big day.

When we think wedding instantly the 'big things' spring to mind; the wedding dress, rings, flowers, wedding party, suits, cars, reception, delicious food, plentiful alcohol, photographer, music, but sometimes we forget all of the little bits and pieces that are crucial to the day.

Things like;

A cake cutting knife.

Champagne glasses (or beer mugs - whatever your individual style wants) for the bride and groom to toast with.

Wishing wells for guests to place their cards full of cash in for the loved up couple (very tongue in cheek!)

Lolly buffets with gorgeous glass jars filled to the brim with the bride and grooms favourite lollies!

Table decorations ranging from glass jars with antique paper cut out love hearts and lace filled with a candle, to flowers, candle labres, tea light candles, gems, jewels and glitzy glamour, bamboo, photo frames, favourite sayings, tea cups, goldfish, shells, sand, starfish, and everything in between, depending on the bride and grooms imagination and whether they have a wedding plans her or not!!!

Fairy lights.

Mr and Mrs such and such in white cursive wooden writing on the bridal table.

Personalised stubby holders.

Bonbonniere ranging from candle holders, to sugared almonds, to beer bottle openers and wine, photo frames, personalised candy and everything in between!
Napkins and napkin rings!

Table clothes and runners (and oh my godness who knew there was lace, silk, organza, Tull, hession, fitted, loose, antique and god knows what else to choose from!)

Chair covers in all different shapes, sizes, colours and materials!

Cake toppers.

Cutlery and crockery.

And well, phew, just about everything that brings the day together, reflecting the bride and groom to a tee!!!

Here's a sneak peak of some of the 'little things' that we have chosen for our special day.
