I really want to go all out with my wedding shoes. I know I can't pick them until I've found the dress, but here are some stunning options for me (and the girls). The big questions are: Flat or high? White or coloured? Plain or embellished?

Posh Girl Vintage Dresses

I have found the most amazing online shop its called Posh Girl Vintage ( and has the most stunning collection of wedding dresses at really reasonable prices (most the ones I liked were about $400) . They are all vintage and as such are totally unique and special. I seem to be drawn to the 1950's dresses so maybe I'll research this as a theme......

1920's Wedding Theme

I love the idea of a 1920's wedding and it seems that this is a really easy theme to pull off, keep everything classy and add touches of geometric design, lots of feathers and an unusual wedding dress.

The Table would be stylish and sleek with geometric table numbers and white feather/flower centrepieces, and white linen, I would add a flash of colour too, perhaps in teal or blue or even plum for something totally different.

The Dress would be a flapper style dress preferably in white with lots of detailing and a drop waist, (if I'm thin enough to pull it off).

The Hair is where I would go all out with a fabulous headpiece using lots of feathers and sparkle (courtesy of Mum I hope.....)

The jewellery would be pearls and very classy you could add earings, knecklaces, bracelets or broaches depending on the dress. I particularly like this bracelet watch so that the bride can keep track of the time through the day while still looking classy.

The invitations, save the dates and thankyou cards could either be inspired by the people, the jazz or the geometric patterns...
The bridesmaids would wear similar style dress to the bride. Both my sisters are very interested in fashion so they could have some fun with this theme and pick two different, perhaps slightly outrageous outfits.

The Venue would ideally be a 1920s building (or there about), this is to be discovered.......

Tewin Bury Farm Hotel

Loving the Tewin Bury Farm Hotel as a venue for the wedding. Last weekend James and I went for a long walk and just happened upon the lovely village that forms the countryside setting for the farm. Upon doing more research I found that this really is a delightful wedding venue for a small and intimate wedding in the Stable or the Millstream or a larger lavish affair in the Tythe barn or the Meadow Marquee. Visit to see more.

Hair pieces.

My talented mum crafts wedding flowers and hairpieces. Here is one that I loved for myself, and one that would be perfect for bridesmaids. I'm definetely going to get mum to make all my hairpieces. If you want to have handcrafted hair pieces too, she'll be opening her shop Shooting Stars on etsy soon......
(I also think I'm going to have my hair wavy for the big day)

Peacock wedding stationary.

Doing a little more research into the peacock theme, definetely in my top three so far! Here's some of the fabulous wedding stationary that's inspiring me at the minute. As a crafter I will probably be making my own wedding stationary using some of these ideas, but putting my own personnal stamp on it.

These peacock place cards are from Etsy shops Timeless Paper, I love them as they are quite plain but still fitting with the theme.
Love this invitation as it looks so classy, and gives a taster of whats to come at the wedding. Visit

This one is fab as it uses an actual peacock feather and not just a print/picture of one. Visit
This is an amazing save the date card as it is so much fun!!!! I feel that whilst I want a really classy invitation I can have a bit more fun with the save the date cards. Visit .

Zazzle is certainly my favourite shop for this theme, this fun photo album is from there too. I don't know if this is perhaps too OTT for me?

Love this thankyou card. I like the idea of our thankyou cards incorporating the wedding theme. Visit
This thankyou card is alot more classy, I love the simple plain design. Visit

These place settings are so pretty. Visit

Went to Horncastle this weekend and visited a bridal shop with my Mum, they were selling some stunning hand made hair pieces. In particular we saw a stunning one made from feathers. This made me think that peacock feather hairpieces world look stunning onme and/or the girls and/or Mum at the wedding. If you aren't lucky enough to have a crafty Mum who can make them for you visit to buy individual handcrafted hairpieces. Many sellers will taylor them to your specific needs and requirements. Here are a few of my favourites:

It's also worth noting that if you do intend to give this a go yourself you can source the feathers from etsy at a very good price.There are many courses available to teach you these skills too.check out
