The For Her and For Him Annual Bridesmaid Dress Sale is Now On!

a-midsummers-daydream_rocknrollbride_camera-hannah-105

When it came to finding bridesmaid dresses for my sister’s wedding last summer, I was quick to recommended that we looked at US based For Her and For Him. Not only do they offer hundreds of different styles in every colour you can think of (meaning even the pickiest of bridesmaids is sure to find something she likes!) but their incredible group discount pricing strategy means that the more dresses you buy from them, the greater the discount they give you on your order!

For the start of the new year, they’ve just released their 2017 collection and I’m thrilled to share some of my favourites with you today.

Do you want rich, deep tones for an autumn or winter wedding?

The 2017 collection features some of the most fashion forward styles too (no frumpy bridesmaid dresses here!) including everything from two-pieces with cropped tops, high low hems, floral patterns and even head to toe sequins!

Meet Our Bicester Village Competition Winners!

bicester_village_winners_rocknrollbride-8

Back in November I was super excited to host a competition for two readers to win a £2000 shopping spree at Bicester Village. Our lucky winners were Vicky, who brought along her mum, and Rachel who visited with her sister and her mum. I wanted to catch up with them both because I thought it would be fun to see what they bought and find out what their experience was like.

Rachel is marrying Scott at a festival in Lincolnshire in July 2018. Their wedding is going to be festival inspired with lots of art, performances and music, so she wanted to find quirky, colourful things to match that theme.

Vicky is marrying Andy in October next year in an industrial chic style wedding with lots of metallics, lights and distressed wood everywhere! She went to Bicester Village hoping she’d find her wedding shoes or maybe even their rings.

Wedding Stationery Ideas for Couples Who Want Something Different

a-good-day-inc-custom-1

It seems that everywhere you look these days there are wedding blogs and magazines sharing ideas on how you can personalise your wedding. From the cake you choose, the dress you wear, even the flowers you carry, there appears to be nothing you can’t put your own stamp on.

This is all well and good, but what if you want something truly one-of-a-kind for your wedding? Something no-one else will have? Then the answer is, of course, to go custom made and get something designed to your exact requirements and ideas.

What Have You Always Wanted To Do?

humdinger-days-wedding-gift-list-adventure

My husband and I like to play the ‘what if’ game on a regular basis. What if money was no object, where would we like to go on holiday/ where would we like to live/ what would be our biggest dream? It’s just a bit of fun, but it also helps us realise what we really want to do with our lives. Sometimes it even helps us to kick start actually making plans to make them happen!

So when I heard about Humdinger Days, a unique Bucket List inspired gift list, I was instantly intrigued. Unlike a lot of wedding registries that focus on the ‘stuff’, they prioritise experiences meaning that if there’s something you’ve always wanted to do, or somewhere you’ve always wanted to go, your guests can donate money towards it!

The first year of marriage can be tough, things change a lot (mostly for the better though!) and if you’re anything like us, money can be really tight. Having things to look forward to post-wedding can be really important. I don’t know about you, but I’m also much happier when Gareth and I do things together, rather than just filling our already over-cluttered home with more things.

So how does Humdinger Days’ Bucket List work? Well first of all, your list is completely personal to you, meaning you can just add the things you really want to do to it. Their ‘Suggest a Day’ feature is also really cool. If there’s something not on their list of experiences that you’ve always wanted to do they will not only add it but they can even make all the arrangements for you too!

Their experiences range from £9 – £1000+. Some pre-listed examples to get you started include:

Extraordinary Hen & Stag Events
Be a blacksmith and forge a sword, reveal your personal colours and style, London treasure hunt in classic minis, battle your opponents and become a knight.

Special Opportunities for Your Wedding Day
Forge your own wedding rings, fun coaching day on how to present a speech.

Super Dates for Your Future Together
Cook and dine in a UK top 50 restaurant, climb the three peaks, drive in a classic or super car road trip, fly a loop the loop.

Introducing: The Autumn/ Winter Collection by Ruby Shoo

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

If you love the idea of fabulous vintage-inspired footwear for your wedding but are struggling to find it in the usual places then I’m about to solve your dilemma! Ruby Shoo are a London-based company who offer contemporary footwear with a vintage influence. I just know you’re going to love them! Juxtaposed fabrics, colours and textures, meets this classic collection that’s wearable, fun and super, duper pretty.

As well as introducing you to their new Autumn/Winter collection I thought it would be fun to chat to designer Samantha Lines to get to know more about her and the inspiration behind the brand.

Tell us about the Ruby Shoo customer. Who are your shoes designed for?
I design Ruby Shoo for the woman who wants to stand out from the crowd. She is confident, fun and enjoys making a statement. I would also like to think she has an individual sense of style which doesn’t follow seasonal trends. Over the past few years I have really enjoyed watching our fan base grow, and the unique ways women are wearing Ruby Shoo – both as evening and day wear.

Why do you think your products are perfect for Rock n Roll brides and grooms?
We recently discovered Rock n Roll Bride and it was such a breath of fresh air, we immediately smiled. The imagery, the faces, the interviews, everything seemed like such a perfect match for Ruby Shoo. The editorial and readers perfectly reflect the individuality of making your special day exactly how you want.
