As my business is weddings and styling, plus a background in interiors and design, I constantly watch trends emerging.  I am pretty good at predicting them and love watching talents emerge that really stand out from the crowds so had to share this amazing cake designer with you.

I found Ivenoven on Instagram and was immediately wowed by her amazing creativity and skills.

Her website is simple but really she does not need much else as her cakes speak for themselves, they are quite simply works of art. (more…)

Asking for money as a wedding gift dilemma solved!

Ok so here goes, the touchy subject of asking guests for cash donations as a wedding gift instead of a toaster.

Many of our couples face this rather tricky dilemma, having already asked their guests to travel to their wedding which in itself is quite an expense to commit to with flights and accommodation.

So here is our take on this delicate subject,  do you then also expect them to contribute to your gift registry as well?

Watching the Design World

It is no secret that the interior designer in me is a constant source of inspiration when it comes to applying aesthetics to our weddings.  I adore, and probably spend too many hours, poring over interior design trends and ideas.

I love interiors, from Modern to Moroccan, Mediterranean to English Country Garden or City Living. ¬†All such different styles and each one provides a huge source of inspiration for me to apply to my work. ¬†Give me cushions and I am in heaven! ¬† (more…)

We love watching the new trends to ensure we are always up to date with our wedding styling and tonight I quickly put together this style board with concrete inspirations found on Pinterest.

As the industrial look hit the interiors world a few years ago we adored the polished concrete kitchen worktops and I was pleased to see the use of marble and stone come back with a vengeance as my entire house has marble floors that I never really liked but now they are bang up to trend! (more…)

We love these new wedding trends that are coming in from interior styling, concrete, marble, coppers, rose golds and as I predicted recently cactus are taking 2017 by storm.

Even big retailers such as Ikea are doing these cute ceramic cactus this year, aren’t they just brilliant for styling up a welcome guest table or dessert station! ¬†At only 15 euros for the set of 3 this is affordable and a fun idea, but be quick as have a feeling these will be seen at quite a few weddings this coming year!

Having posted about what we are seeing as one of the latest fashions for weddings we thought we would work up the marble theme a bit more. This helps us as we get our creative hats on to look at styles, colours and designs for our weddings.

I created this inspiration board this evening from Pinterest to look at this style in detail.

For me marbles are quite a cold medium to work with.

We are in love with this latest trend of 2016 that we will see a lot more for 2017 weddings, don’t they just make for fabulous photos!!

They cast a billowing coloured smoke which lasts apparently for about 5 minutes, enough time to get some great atmospheric photos.

Out of Town Welcome Bags for Weddings

April 30th, 2015 Posted by Delightful details, Elegant Weddings in Spain, Favours for Weddings, Ideas for Weddings, Welcome bags for weddings 0 thoughts on “Out of Town Welcome Bags for Weddings”

As our wedding season is now well and truly underway we are thoroughly enjoying putting together our Out of Town Welcome bags and boxes together for some of our clients guests.

All of our weddings have flown in from far and wide to host their weddings here in Spain and what is really welcoming is presenting your guests with a personal wedding welcome gift bag or box full of useful, and not so useful, but lovely things to show appreciation for the fact they have travelled to celebrate your wedding with you.

We have some fabulous bags and boxes that we are creating so thought it would be nice to share them with you and a list of ideas we create for our clients.

A pretty welcome bag or box with a personalised message and itinerary of your wedding card

A map of the local area with useful information on your local area, such as recommended restaurants, emergency numbers and hints and tips

Sunscreen, slightly important here in sunny Spain to stop your guests from turning pink or an even deeper shade of red

Water, again always welcome in a hot climate

Small bottles of wine, cava or sherry, even more welcome!

Savoury nibbles, olives, crackers and nuts from local suppliers

Sweet treats, perhaps some chocolates, mints or sweets

Headache tablets, they will be drinking a lot during your celebrations so what better than to provide some headache relief

Plasters for those aching dancing feet

Locally produced gifts, ceramic tiles, olive oil or infused vinegars

Some lovely scented bath gels or scented candles for their rooms

There is a whole host of ideas to make your guests feel special and appreciated so, if you have the extra budget, do try to make your guests feel welcome when they have travelled sometimes half way across the world to join you.
