Managing your stress and getting that perfect body for your big day

From the day you get engaged, there is this amazing bubbling feeling inside you, but with it also comes an underlying stress that you may not even notice in the beginning.  Planning a wedding is very stressful and you put a tremendous amount of pressure on yourself to make sure your big day is perfect, but not only that, you also want your body to be perfect. You want to start your life together in a flawless bubble of love with all your friends and family there to share in the happiness with you. This expectation is a very big thing to carry on your shoulders. We think Yoga may be the perfect solution for you

Shoes are a girl's best friend

Shoes… I know they say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but I honestly think shoes should get the honours of being our best friends.  They just round of an outfit so beautifully, changes your posture, lifts your mood and honestly can simply brighten your day when you find that one stunning pair of shoes on a SALE.  When you choose your wedding shoes there are a few things to consider though, so we thought we would see if we can’t give you some guidance while being forced to look at pretty shoes :-)

Personalised wedding favours and gifts just adds that extra touch

A wedding is such a special occasion, and to put your personal stamp on your reception tables are a wonderful way of creating beautiful memories.  Although our favours are beautifully packed with their own thank you tags, even we must admit, personalising the gifts just add a lovely touch.  That is why we have decided to increase our offerings for personalisation.

Personalising your wedding favours

Personalising your wedding favours just adds that extra special touch that adds to your decor and makes a gift feel so much more special to your wedding guests.  We always have a note to say you should contact us for personalisation, today we want to explain your options a bit better to you.

We have an inhouse designer who designs the most beautiful thank you tags, we have a few templates on the site already which you can choose from.  We update the templates with your name and date and then we will send the artwork to you for approval.  Once you give us the go ahead we send the tags to the printers and have them cut for you.  When you receive your wedding favours we will send the personalised thank you tags together with a small plastic loop to allow for easy attaching of the tags.

We also offer engraving on some of our wedding favours.  You can send us the personalised message that you want engraved, we will then design the artwork and send it to you for approval.  Once this is done the favours are simply engraved and sent to you.  This process takes about two weeks from start to finish.  The costs involved include R180 for the artwork set up and then R6 per item for the engraving.  The engraving is of an exceptional quality and will definitely add a nostalgic element to your wedding favours. Examples of items that can be engraved for you are:
Classic Bottle opener keyring
Hip Flask keyring
Happy Hearts Smiley keyring
Charming Keyring bag charm
Power bank wedding favours

You can also let us know if you want to change the colour of the ribbon on your wedding favours.  This option is available at R6 per gift. Simply let us know what your wedding colours are, then we will send you the ribbon in that colour.  This is a personalisation option, you can get your family together and ask them to help you quickly change the ribbons.

Please note that we have a minimum order quantity of atleast 30 for any personalisation

We hope this article helped to clear up some of your questions on personalisation.  If there is anything we missed, please let us know.

Until next time, happy planning.

Do it yourself wedding ideas

Weddings are expensive and it helps to save money where ever possible. Here are a few Do it yourself (DIY) ideas that might make things cheap without compromising on your dream wedding.

If you are a foodie and just can't resist a delicious creamy cheese with a fig preserve after dinner, a cheese stacked wedding cake may just be the perfect cake for you.  These cakes are also very easy to make and will cost a fraction of the cost of a designer wedding cake.  Refer to our step by step guide on making your own cheese stacked wedding cake.

Then there is your bouquet.  Why not ask your mother or a creative friend if they would make your bouquet for you.  It would a beautiful reminder later and you will sentimentally think of your beautiful and unique flower bouquet.  There are so many options and it truly is not difficult.  A bunch of arum lilies surrounded with red roses can quickly be tied together with a rubber band.  Then simply wrap  a green silk ribbon around the stem to finish off the bouquet.

The options you have to do your wedding favours yourself are endless.  You can buy a small cactus plant and plant it in a pail or glass votive.  The "pot" you choose simply depends on your wedding theme, whether you are going for a clean and crisp feel or perhaps rustic, these wedding favours will fit in with your wedding seamlessly.

 Let us know if these steps helped you or if you did something yourself at your wedding that really made it more special or saved you money.

Until next time :-)
