It’s been a while since our wedding blog revival, so we thought we’d do something a little bit fun and different, and hopefully help our ‘Brides to Be’ in their own wedding planning. So we’ve put together a quick little A-Z of Weddings of some of our favourite wedding suppliers, couples and posts that we’ve done over the last few months!

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

A – Alterations by Abigail Westrup Bridal, Bristol

A great many Brides need some sort of alteration making when they find their perfect wedding gown and Abigail Westrup, based just around the corner from us in Nailsea, Bristol comes highly recommended! She’s shortly due to be moving to new premises on Nailsea High Street and will be focusing on her very own Wedding Dress Designs and we wish her the very best of luck!

B – Bridal Bouquets by The Vintage Bouquet

A brides bouquet is very special and if it isn’t tossed towards your Bridesmaids then you may want to keep it as wonderful keepsake from your day. The Vintage Bouquets makes stunning artificial bouquets from silk, foam and other materials to your own personalised design!

C – Caketoppers by Shantel’s Caketoppers

Nearly every wedding cake has a little statue of the Bride & Groom on the top. When we saw Shantel’s miniature works of art, we simply had to feature her on the blog. From a soldier on a motorbike, a Harry Potter themed couple to even a couple in a hot air balloon, Shantel’s craft is amazing. A great way to add a personal touch with a hint of humour to make a lovely talking point among your guests!

D – Dresses for Your Bridesmaids by Irenee’s Bridal By Design

Arranging a set of dressses that’s going to keep all of your Bridesmaids happy can be a challenge, but at Irenee’s Bridal she can provide different styles of Bridesmaid Dresses to suit each one but still keeps the theme & tone of your wedding. Definitely worth a visit to her website, she has some lovely dresses.

E – Emmazing Bakes for Amazing Wedding Cakes

We’ve already mentioned caketoppers to go on top of the cake, so now we need to talk about the cake. No longer are wedding cakes thought of 3 tier round cakes, you can now have chandelier cakes, half and half cakes to superhero cakes. The level and attention to detail is outstanding!

F – Flash Floozy for Bridal Headwear

There is a multitude of places to get tiaras from but when it comes to boho, vintage and chic headwear then Flash Floozy is worth a look. From floral crowns to rustic halos, if it’s bridal headwear with distinction, it’s Flash Floozy!

G – Garters by Moonrise Garters (Tanya Sienna Hall)

We couldn’t very well not take the G for Garters for ourselves now could we? Tanya started making her very own bespoke range of wedding garters earlier this year, from her original ‘Lucky Sixpence Garter’ to football garters, super hero’s and even a Peacock Garter! All handmade and made to measure if needed!

H – Heels for your Wedding Day by ‘Electric Heels’

We featured Kat’s work quite sometime ago and it’s nothing short of amazing. This lady transforms a pair of fairly plain heels into a truly remarkable and personal pair of wedding shoes specific to your requirements. She can even include sentiments to loved ones who can’t be there with you!

I – Invitations by Blueskys Creations

Set the tone and theme of your wedding day with your wedding invitations, from simple and elegant to delicate and detailed then Vicky from Blueskys Creations is sure to help. Always worth getting a few extra invitations as well because you never know who you might have forgotten to send one too!

J – Jewellery by Belle’s Charms

It’s sometimes tough to think of thank you gifts for your Wedding Party, be it Bridesmaids, Best Man or Flower Girls. We think a personalised keyring or wineglass charm is a great gift to show your thanks and it’s not going to break the budget!

K – Karen Louise of Bridal Eyewear

Every wedding couple cares of how they’re going to look on their wedding day photographs. If you wear glasses then Karen Louise of Bridal Eyewear can certainly help you out with a pair of frames that will suit your wedding day look. Remember it’s the attention to detail what makes a big difference!

L – Lingerie for your Wedding Day by Moonrise Lingerie

No prizes for guessing that L was going to be for Lingerie, it had to be really didn’t it? Whether your dress is low back, strapless or you’re looking for luxurious plus size wedding lingerie, we’re here to help at Moonrise Lingerie – ‘Bridal Lingerie Specialists’

M – Makeup by Chloe Evans

The Brides makeup on the morning of the wedding is clearly an important item when it comes to planning your wedding. Chloe Evans has teamed up with Charlotte Hough to provide a duo on your wedding morning to help with bridal hair & makeup. Chloe offers some invaluable advice as well!

N – Novelty Wedding Transport ‘Mystery Machine Hire’

We love wedding things and ideas that are a little bit different and a little bit out there, so this fits just perfect! Travel to your wedding in ‘Scooby Style’ in the Mystery Machine! Most go for swish or vintage cars, and if there are a lot of kids attending they’ll love it, as well as your guests! We’re also led to believe that a VW Beetle in the guise of ‘Herbie’ will also soon be available!

We have to share the O when it comes to online planning. Earlier this year we caught up with Gabriella from WeddingTour.Co.Uk and found out about their brilliant online virtual wedding planner along with a host of great FREE planning tools to help you plan their day!

P – Photography for the Wedding Day

Throughout many of our posts we publish the work of many wedding photographers as well as featuring quite a few in guest posts.

Q – Quality Time for Each Other.

This is the one consistent piece of advice we get from our guest suppliers as well as from Real Brides from their Wedding Day features is, ‘Make sure you take a bit of time out on your wedding day to spend by yourselves and just take it all in, as it goes by too quick!’.

R – Real Wedding Features

We absolutely love reading about Real Weddings from couples who have recently married, how they met, what theme they had for their wedding, what their ‘best buys’ were for their Big Day and all of their hints, tips and advice they have to offer our Brides to Be for their ‘Wedding Journey’. Congratulations to them all, thank you for sharing and we wish you all the very best for the future!

S – Sister Sister Bridal Bouquets & Wedding Flowers

Artificial wedding flowers and bouquets are becoming increasingly more popular and you can see why because you can hardly tell the difference. Claire of Sister Sister Bouquets works absolute wonders with silks, foams and other material to produce some truly stunning bouquets!

T – Table Planner by Blueskys Creation

Quite often a source of much consternation in deciding who sits where, and usually best to have a table plan to avoid too much ‘dilly dallying’ before your wedding reception!

U – Underwear for Beneath the Wedding Dress

Your wedding underwear is the foundation which that perfect wedding dress rests upon, and having well chosen and correct fitting bridal lingerie on your big day can make a dramatic difference to your finished look.

V – Venue Dressing by ‘Rent a Wedding’

Weddings can be quite costly and easily spiral out of control. One area to possibly make a little saving is in your venue decorations or dressings, instead of buying all of your centre pieces and other decor, maybe consider renting them. This is where ‘Rent a Wedding’ is able to help!

W – Wedding Dresses by ‘Discount Wedding Dresses’

We hear of many stories of Brides trying to save money on their wedding dress, with varying degrees of success and some ending in complete disaster! Avoid this completely. We introduced a fresh new local dress business ‘Discount Wedding Dresses Bristol‘ who offer quality wedding gowns at affordable prices without the risk!

X – Xtra Time to get dressed

Try and allow some extra time when getting ready on the morning of your Wedding, just in case of any unexpected hiccups, like missing buttons, zips breaking or laddered tights! Maybe consider asking your wedding dress fitter to help on the morning of the wedding?

Y – Young Attendants

A lot of weddings have Young Attendants, Pageboys, Flowers Girls and Ring Bearers etc. It can be quite a long day for them, so make an effort to provide things to keep them occupied at certain phases of the day. We added bubbles, toy favours and the balloon release in the evening got them all running around again!

Z – Zero Regrets

When we ask Real Brides, and suppliers, for any advice to give to Brides to Be for their wedding day, they quite often say, “It’s your day, don’t stress about little things and take it all in because it goes by so fast!” We all get that planning a wedding can be very stressful and that you want everything to be just right, but don’t forget to enjoy it all and have fun, and make it through the whole journey with no regrets!

Congratulations to Bev & James!

Well that’s us out of letters! Thought it would be something a little bit different and give all our New Brides to Be a starting point for ideas and suppliers when it comes to start planning!  

Good Luck
