The inspiration for Mary and Alex’s colourful wedding was family. Having two kids, it was important to them that they were involved and enjoyed the day too.
“From the start we wanted a party where we happened to get married”, explained Mary. “We have two children now and we wanted them to be the main focus, as family is so important to us. I love colour and glitter and I wanted this to be all over the venue. I was often asked what my colour theme was and my response was ‘all of them!’ We also described it as ‘when a unicorn pukes glitter’ which I think we pulled off but in a quite a subtle way.”
“Lots of people avoid kids at weddings but ours was completely the opposite for us with nearly 20 invited to the day and well over 30 in the evening. This made the focus about them and having fun, something we hope our children will hold fond memories of for life.”
The bride wore a short, retro inspired dress but she customised it with a pink and teal petticoat, a Rock n Roll Bride x Crown and Glory Liberace belt and even gold glitter trim around the neckline! She teamed it with gold Irregular Choice shoes and a rainbow gem birdcage veil.
One of the most enjoyable parts of my sister’s hen do last summer was making our own flower crowns with Crown and Glory. In fact it was so fun that Sophie and I decided we had to create something for the rest of you to be able to experience the same thing. And so the concept of these DIY flower crown kits was born!
So whether you want to do it on your hen do like we did, at a birthday party, on a rainy Saturday afternoon, or you just want to make your own flower crown for your wedding then these kits are for you.
